Noob question: setting up Multi part Thumb Jam in AUM using Aphelian?

Hi all,

I am trying to set up four ThumbJam instruments inside AUM to be played by the 4 MIDI outputs available inside Aphelian, on my IPad Air 2018 running IOS 12.3, and just can’t work out how to do it. Any help would be appreciated :)

I have loaded up four of the available 8 IAA ‘port’ instances of TJ in 4 Audio channels on AUM, gone into the TJ Settings for the first of these, turned off MPE, selected ‘Aphelian’ as my MIDI source, set the first channel in TJs MIDI in settings from Omni to ‘1’, and that plays fine. However, regardless of what I do in the remaining channels, including using the TJ Split function to load different instruments inside the first instance, I can only get one currently selected instrument in the first TJ channel to play across all 4 instances from the Aphelian MIDI outs, set to 1 thru 4. I have played around selecting the (Virtual) Aphelian port as my ‘In’ on each individual TJ channel, and also tried routing it to them in the AUM matrix view, both individually from Aphelian, or by routing Aphelian into AUMs built in MIDI control. No dice.

My understanding is that I ought to be able to select different TJ instruments hosted inside the other AUM channels, and have Aphelian play each of the four parts on different TJ instruments. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
