Using VST Plugins
4. Using multi-timbrality of VST instruments
Multi-timbrality is a characteristic of some VST instruments that enables them to
generate multiple sounds at the same time. The advantage of multi-timbrality is that
only one instance of the VST instrument has to be running for multiple sounds.
- create a new instrument in the instrument explorer
- go to the Synthesizer tab
- click on MIDI/VST Instrument Enabled
- select the already loaded multi-timbral VST instrument in the drop-down list
- assign a channel that isn't already in use in another instrument by that VST instrument
- all changes applied to the VST instrument in this instrument won't affect other instruments holding the same VST instrument
Configuring multi-timbrality in the instrument window. After having assigned one VST instrument to two different instruments, all you need to do is to use different channels for both instruments.
|Use multitimbrality whenever possible. Loading one instead of two instances of a VST instrument can dramatically reduce the CPU power needed to play back your song. Check the manual of your VST instruments to find out if they support multitimbrality.|
