[Ardour-Users] Directing MIDI input from a keyboard

Hi all,

I have a project set up in Ardour 3 with a number of MIDI tracks, all of 
which I'd like to be able to selectively play with and record to from my 
MIDI keyboard. I have the keyboard hooked up to each track's inputs, but 
when I press a key, the message gets sent to every track, which makes 
working with specific sounds difficult.

I was hoping that MIDI would work in a similar way to audio, ie: with 
Auto Input disabled, MIDI data should only go to those tracks that are 
armed for recording. That way, I could simply arm the track I want to 
play with, and disarm any others.

Is there a way to get this to work, or is there some other way of 
managing a single keyboard input across multiple MIDI tracks?
