Hi, I am extremely happy to own a keylab88, great keyboard in all way...

...Until I understood that there is no easy way to change the main emmiting channel on the fly for all controls in a raw (keys + wheels + pads +knobs + faders)
This is particularly handy for sampletank, where you can load instruments on 16 channels, with midi modifiers for each channels.
Same goes for the Arturia B3V: the usual trick is to have the upper keyboard + upperdrawbars on ch1 and lower keys+ lower drawbar on ch2... and in this case it is impossible???

Even my first midi keyboard oxgen 49 can do it and it cost less than 100... Isn't the Keylab88 supposed to be a kind of ultimate midi keyboard?

I read in this forum that there is a trick to do it by setting the 10 keyboard presets to the 10 first midi channels, but kontakt and sampletank work with 16 channels!

We really need a firmware update to fix this, it seems a nonesense!
Or hopefully I am wrong and I did not undertand how to do it??
