OK, I think this is sorted, at least for the MPC.
With identical notes on the first beat, copied to every channel, where track 1 = channel 1 etc, the order of channelised notes arriving at MIDI-OX is
However, if Track 1 is set to channel 10, the order of channelised notes is
Same holds true whatever channel is set to whatever track. The notes are output in track order, irrespective of channel. So if I want Channel 10 to have top timing priority, I set it to track 1. If I am understanding MIDI-OX’s timestamp correctly, it seems to take about 17ms to send the full set of 16 note-on commands.
So the simple answer for me is a) stick with Ch10 for drum tracks and b) place them on the first sequencer track(s).
Job’s a good’n, thank you all for your help. :thumbup:
