    ¿One-take midi recording question?

    Hi guys,
    need a hand in structuring a project to record MIDI notes, split by pitch
    My setup is
    Macbook Pro 2.9 13" OSX 10.8.3
    Logic Pro 9.1 + NI Elements
    Midipipe (if necessary)
    MAX/MSP + Monome grid and arc interfaces

    I'm triggering improvised polyrithmic melodic patterns and would like to be able to

    a) record each octave separately in one pass (!)
    b) assign a different softsynth to each octave
    c) playback the midi and mix to audio

    when I create multiple instrument tracks I've noticed that I can only hear the track that is "in focus".
    I think I could bypass this limitation by creating an empty environment and then

    1) add some kind of midi splitter
    2) create x number of instrument tracks, each with its own softsynth
    3) connect each instrument/fader to the midi-splitter
    4) arm all tracks and record in one take
    5) playback, add effects, and mix as usual

    Is this the proper procedure or am I adding unneccessary steps to the process?
