All midi notes with midi channel > 1 are converted to 1 when sent to instrument
-------- short bug description ------
when midi notes send on midi channels 2,3,4,5,6..etc are send to other track (using midi send or "send midi to parent" in IN/OUT channel settings), they arrive or target track with proper midi channel number, but then they are sent to plugin on that track aways with fixed midi channel number 1

I've got one instance of BeatHawk loaded on a track, with different instruments set to each pad. BeatHawk has a "MIDI Select" feature that allows sending MIDI to each pad using the corresponding MIDI channel. What I want to do is create multiple tracks in NS2, each one sending to a different MIDI channel of this one BeatHawk instance.
Here's what I did, which I thought would work: I created multiple "no instrument" tracks that are all children of the BeatHawk track. For each track, I added the "MIDI Clone & Filter" effect from "MIDI Tools", which redirects all MIDI instructions to a different channel. The out for each of these tracks is set to go to the parent track (i.e. BeatHawk).
If I add a MIDI monitor effect after the Clone & Filter, I can see that the note information is being updated to the correct MIDI channel. However, BeatHawk seems to be getting all MIDI information on Channel 1...
Am I doing something wrong, or is this a consequence of a known limitation of NS2?
