Tangra,EDIT: I just tried out my second idea about the Multichannel Instrument and 16 Aux Lev/Pan control but the Apple DSL Music Device can be loaded as (2 Stereo) Multichannel instrument only so the trick is invalid. For now my original GM Template is the only way to use the Apple DSL Music Device properly. Take easy - the multi instance usage works as aliases and spreads the CPU better according to the Logic multicore channel strip laws.
Hi Wally,Then again, in Logic, it's sort of a non-issue given the wide range of factory instruments.
Either that, or it's a matter of one instrument per track vs multi-timbral, which is what the EXS 24 is all about.There is no flexible method to use the Logic "Mega" library and recall the proper GM patches via Program Change etc. Apple have to think about some kind of a Multitimbral Software Instrument like the Steinberg HALion Sonic and have to change the Channel Strip Level/Pan behavior or update it to pass CC7 & CC10 without affecting the ChannelStrip level/pan etc.
