Is there a way to save a sequence of effects laid out ?

Post by CancerRidden » Sun Mar 17, 2013 2:47 am

Okay, so I have an instrument, and then after that, I have loaded up

EQ8, Compressor, Chorus, Erosion and Saturator and have dialed up some settings that I think sound nice...


So... is there a way to save the effects and settings?

so that I can just load them up automatically and I apply it to any instrument I want going forward?

Sure, two ways:

- Right click on each device header and choose "save as default". Now whenever you load up each of those plug ins, they will load with those exact settings.

- If you want to save the the instrument and the effects as a single preset, select all of them right on one of the headers and choose "group". This will put them all into one instrument rack which you can drag to the browser and rename as you see fit. Now you can load that instrument rack exactly like it was whenever you want.

Yup quiet, but as said, probably due to either the English, drowning their sorrow's or the Welsh drinking in celebration haha.
