: When using a multi-mix I can't seem to get Channel 1 to be quiet when I'm trying to play another channel. Lately I've just turned it's volume down to nothing. I know there's a better way. Why does it do that anyway? Anybody know how to make it behave?
Are you playing it through a sequencer? It sounds to me like you've forgotten to set your synth to local off in the global parameters. What happens is that your synth might be set to play on channel one, so that sound plays, then the midi message goes through your sequencer, where you might be recording on channel five. Your sequencer then sends the midi message out to channel five of your synth. Thus you hear both channels one and five at the same time. Look up Local off in the index of your manual. Hope this helps.
