Sending an individual patch to a midi keyboard from a synth
 
Is it possible to hook up a midi keyboard to a multitimbral synth and play one patch on that midi keyboard, while playing a different patch on the synth keyboard, without a computer in the chain? (For example, playing a bass patch from the midi keyboard, and then a lead patch on the synth keyboard).

And of this IS possible, is this something any multitimbral synth would have the ability to do? I’m struggling to find any literature or videos online where someone does this with any synth.

Wrong forum, but definitely - yes.

The right forum would be

or possibly

As to your original question, the term you are looking for is "keyboard split". In this situation its more to do with whether your midi keyboard can do a split, a multitimbral synth will be able to do it basically by definition.... each "timbre" will have its own midi channel, so your midi keyboard needs to be set up to transmit one midi channel below a certain key and another midi channel above.... oh, I see you actually wanted to do it on the synths keyboard and the midi keyboard. Even easier, just the midi channel assignments of each will get you there.

Not only is it possible, it's pretty much how my studio is wired. Multitimbrality is awesome.
