Hi all,

 

I have juste bought VEP 5 and I would like to use it to host all my VSL instruments.

My daw is Pro Tools.

So I start to understand how it works. I create a template in VEP with my instruments (up to 16 because there are only 16 midi channels available).

Then I create an instrument track in PT and load VEP in it.

Then I create up to 16 midi tracks to control the different channels in VEP.

But my question is :  s there a way to create only one instance of VEP in order to host all instruments ?

I mean for example for Dimension Strings. I have more than 16 instruments, (8 vi 1 & 2, 6 violas, 3 celli and 2 bassi). So it's up to 29 instruments.

Is there a way to have them all in one VEP template or do I need to create a new template every 16 instruments ?

In an utopic world, I would like to put all my VSL instruments (up to 50 or 60 maybe) in one template and use only this template.

Is there a way to do that ?

 

Thnaks a lot

Yes, you need to make sure that you access more than one MIDI port per instance, and set your VEP Preferences accordingly.

Sorry, I don't really understand.

Let's take a concrete example. What are the steps if I want to put 30 VSL instruments (for example all Dimension strings + Appasionata and solo strings) in one VEP instance ?

Thanks a lot

If PT suports VST3 you can dirrect multipul MIDI ports on one instance. If not, use the Event Plugin to do it

PT doesn't use VST, but AAX supports multiple MIDI ports.

@Hicks. You need to read the Pro Tools manual to learn about multiple MIDI ports, and then you'll understand.
