Reaktor and Mainstage setting keyboard layer note range

Hello, first post here.

I'm trying to use several instances of Reaktor (running Chet Singer's Dannenberg brass) in Mainstage and setting a keyboard range of 1 octave to each horn accross the keyboard (tuba C2-C3, trombone C3-C4, etc) so that I can play them all with a breath controller and do 4 and 5 note chords as a horn section.

It doesn't seem to be working, it seems like Reaktor ignores the keyboard ranges from Mainstage.

Any ideas?

    You can pn @Chet Singer here in the forum ask him.

    Where on the gui you can see the ranges of the instruments?

    There is a module named Note Range in Reaktor and a macro with the same name.

    But not in Dannenberg Brass.

    Oh yes

    It's a pitty I never use it. The Range module and macro only.

    Do you change the midi channel for each instrument or do you want to play tuba and trombone from one instance. But this needs different instrument settings.

    Reaktor isn't multitimbral. So one each instance in a daw.

    I was loading multiple instances in Mainstage. I only want to use 1 Midi Channel, so that the breath controller is working for all the instances. I was trying to separate the voices by the layer note range in Mainstage.
