Yes, because the amp head receives in OMNI.
It's ridiculous to me that the amp maker designed it this way but that is the case. They (Brunetti) also sell their own proprietary midi components but they are very expensive. The modified midi chip alone is $250. I could also buy a midi solutions event filter for $125 but since I'm unemployed and broke I thought I'd run the idea across the Eventide folks in hopes that if there is enough demand for it that it would be implemented as a future update. I doubt that many people want or need this but I felt it was worth a try regardless.
