I have some tracks set up to respond to a single channel, since they're 
being sent to different channels on a multitimbral hardware synth. 
However, I have some other synths loaded as LV2 plugins that expect to 
receive their data on channel 1, so if I use any other channel for them, 
they don't make any sound.

Once you have two such synths loaded, both necessarily set up on channel 
1, you get back to my original problem.
