I finally figured out that it's not the input to the MIDI track that you
are concerned with, it's the MIDI routing.  Correct?

I believe that the workflow you want is to have MIDI routed from a MIDI
input to whichever MIDI channel/port is associated with a track that you
click on in the main window.  Is that correct?  That's how Sonar works,
if I remember correctly.

Check out the website I've been cobbling together.  It will never be
done, but it's a start:
My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
