Pro Tools-Multiple MIDI IN on one instrument track

I have Pro Tools 8, and an edirol controller. I can't get my instrument tracks in Pro Tools to recognize multiple midi channels, they only seem to recognize MIDI channel 1. There must be some preference somewhre.

If I'm using structure, sampletank, or Kontact, and have different presets on different MIDI channels, it will only play the preset assigned to midi channel 1 even though I change the channel on the controller. It MUST be a pro tools midi preference somewhere.

I also have logic on the same computer, and when i use the SAME plug ins, SAME controller, it all works fine.

Are you setting the MIDI channel on the instrument track in the tracks "MIDI Output Selector"?

If you have Structure loaded on the instrument track and want to play whatever you have loaded on MIDI channel 2, you need to set the MIDI Output on the track to "Structure1-2".

If you are trying to run it as a multi instrument with MIDI data for several MIDI channels all on the same track, I don't think you can do that. You can create additional MIDI tracks that direct their MIDI output to individual channels on the instrument track you already have.
