Reading .mid file channels

Just wondering if anyone's used the MIDI Player actor to separate MIDI channel information with success?
I'm exporting multiple midi tracks from Logic Pro X to a .mid file. Each track on my Logic timeline is assigned a different channel). When I use the MIDI Player actor in Isadora to read the resulting files I find that ALL the midi info is playing back on ONE channel. This may very well be a Logic issue, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this issue and knows how to resolve it?
Maybe some clues as to how Isadora reads the .mid files and what parameters I might be able to change?
if you Alt+click on the 'chan' name you get the info that if set to none or 0, the MIDI data is sent to the channels assigned in the MIDI file. When set to 1 to 16, all MIDI data is sent to the specified channel.
Hope this helps.

It seems that you can not separate MIDI data on different channels of your created/recorded MIDI track with Isadoras MIDI Player. ALL the data is sent to every channel you choose. You may need to export every channel(in Logic) as separate track and in Isadora start these in unique players with one trigger.I tried to construct midi player/recorder with Isadora/PlogueBidule. I can see different channels in MIDIMonitor and if I play the recorded MIDI track with Bidule and listen(watch) with Isadora NoteOn Watcher for every channel I get the data according to the channels OK. So this is a way to do it as well - play outside Isadora/listen in Isadora.
