So even though you can Split and Layer the DX7ii, it can Receive on 2 x Midi channels, but only Transmit on 1.
Thanks for the pointers on Grey Matter.

I have been watching this video by David Gibson :-
And this one by a group of experts in conversation :-
Both videos are over two hours long !!
I am trying to spend an hour each day listening to music to try and train my ears into a more disciplined way of 'listening'. What many term as 'active' listening. I was never taught how to listen to music PROPERLY. Even at music college !!! Its been many years of trial and error.
