Sometimes I open up someone else's custom in Reaper to make modifications for my own taste or fix PS3 loop ending. I have noticed that occasionally Reaper tells me that some tracks in the multitrack midi file are themselves multichannel, and asks me if I want to merge them into single channels. I didn't see any reference to multichannel in Farottone's authoring tutorial, and always used single-channel tracks for my own customs. I think they might be needed for Pro Guitar but I've seen them also elsewhere.

 

What is the reason for using multiple channels in a single midi track?

 

If I modify a custom with a multichannel track, does it matter if I merge it, am I going to break something?

The simple answer is

 

I don't know why it does that, but it does.

It's nothing the author did.

Merge the tracks.

It won't break anything.
