This is *very* specific to my environment, but it works quite well. http://nebiru.com/drumWagon/page.cfm/ReaperJS
I use BFD3 straight to the ZD without any DAW's or other programs. I guess your midi filter plugin is a part of your program then. I don't want a 'poor man's choke', I still want the drums and such to be ringing out when I choke a cymbal. I'll keep plugging away, there has to be a solution, I just have to either find it or invent it! Thanks DW.
