Default Applying a time delay or midi time delay PER channel

So say I have two kontakt instruments in one kontakt instance., One has a note delay of 40ms (on channel 1), one does not (on channel 2). What I would like to do is delay the second instrument on channel 2 by 40 ms to match the first instrument, then apply a negative time delay on the whole track by 40ms.

I don’t want to get into manually moving midi notes around to sync them up (I want to set it and forget it), and would like to keep them on the same track. Is there a way to add a 40ms delay ONLY to channel two?

In ReaPack there are multiple delay plugins. (e.g. the +/- delay) OTOH 40 mSec for different sounds does not seem lit something that needs mending.

are you talking about delaying the audio or the MIDI?

if audio - JS Time adjustment delay

if MIDI - JS MIDI delay

Actually both. The first instrument (channel 1) has a delay in the samples of 40ms on its own, the second instrument (channel 2) does not. So what I would like to do is apply a time delay of 40 ms to the second channel only, making channel 1 and 2 both 40ms late. Then I would apply a negative time delay of 40 ms with JS time adjustment delay to move both of them in time.

Oh I get it now these were instructions lol. I found the Js midi delay plugin and this was exactly what I needed. Thanks a lot.

It would be eaysier to just add a negative audio delay to the other instrument.

Moreover a very short Midi delay makes only sense, if all Midi processing in the queues is done ample-accurate. I suggest that you check this first, as this might be the reason why on instruments comes early.

I decided to just route out the audio and add a time delay on each audio track, seems the most practical way.

Some developers sample a longer attack time on strings/brass to make it sound more realistic.
