Here is a quick guide to getting control over the drawbars on Receptor;

  1. Begin by loading Native Instruments' B4 II into the first channel slot in your mixer. Then proceed to the setup page and enable the option to Route MIDI CCs to source plug-in by clicking in the box next to it.
  2. Go to the edit view of the B4 plug-in by clicking on the E key to the left of it's name. This will display the B4 user interface. In the top Right hand side of the Interface (next to the PRESET button) is a small button labeled setup. Note that this is different from Receptor's setup page. In here you can see a list of preset CC numbers to control parameters of B4 II. The Parameter labeled invert MIDI drawbars can be used to reverse the direction that the faders on your keyboard work in, so that they operate like a real organ.
  3. If you plan on using multiple MIDI controllers for upper/lower organ and Bass pedals you'll need to change the MIDI filter to allow multiple MIDI channels for B4 II. To do this go to Receptor's mix view. Just below the plug-in name in the source box is a button with a circle (designed to look like the end of a MIDI cable) and the number 1. Click on this to access the MIDI filter window. At the top of the MIDI filter window there are two rows of numbers. Set these to All and Thru to allow B4 II to use multiple MIDI channels. Then proceed to the B4 interface (as outlined in step 2) and configure the MIDI channels for upper/lower and bass pedals to your preferences.
