Ardour acts as MIDI thru

I just noticed that if I connect my controller kb as the MIDI in on a track, it will play whatever is connected to the MIDI out. Is this by design? If I want to, can I turn off this default MIDI-thru functionality?

It does that when monitoring input. You can force monitoring status in a variety of ways, some of which (or all) are likely known to you.

Yeah, probably. I’ll look for those next time I’m in the studio. Thanks. :slight_smile:
