OK this is about the dumbest question you'll see, it's about MIDI 101.
I know basically how MIDI works in applications like Reason. But I'm not sure about using it with hardware.

The electribe sequencer has 5 synth buttons and a bunch of drums. I ran a MIDI cable from the electribe to an Alesis Micron. The result was that the 1st synth channel on the Electribe played with sounds from the Micron. OK, I understand that the signals were being sent on MIDI channel 1.

Now, how would I send OTHER Midi channels? It seems that synths & keyboards can only receive one channel.

I seem to be missing a piece of information here. Is there some kind of MIDI signal splitter or mixing board to enable sending more than one channel?

Suppose I wanted to route ALL of the electribe synth channels to some other piece of hardware? Preferably, 'zones' on a keyboard. Question
