This article will guide you through the process of setting up the KORE 2 plug-in as a multi-timbral instrument with multiple outputs in Logic 8. Before you begin, make sure that both your KORE 2 and Logic Pro 8 software are up-to-date.
- Create a new Logic Project.
- Create a new Instrument Track inside Logic.
- From the drop-down menu, choose multi-timbral and enter the number of MIDI tracks you will require for your multi-timbral instance of KORE 2. You will see several tracks appear inside Logic's arrange page. Each of these tracks will send information to your instrument over an independent MIDI channel.
- Create a multi-output instance of KORE 2. In the example below, we are selecting Multi Output (8 x Stereo)
- Open the Logic mixer window.
- Click the + icon at the bottom-right of the KORE 2 channel strip to create new Aux Tracks. Each click will create a new Aux Track with an input preassigned to the next available KORE 2 output.
- Open the KORE 2 interface by double-clicking on the KORE 2 icon.
- Open the KORE 2 Edit area.
- Create a few Source channels in the KORE 2 Sound Matrix.
- Insert a KoreSound from the Browser or a new plug-in into each Source channel.
- Choose the Audio tab and assign the outputs of each Source channel to a new Plugin Output.
- From the MIDI tab on each Source channel, assign the MIDI channel to that which you wish each Source channel to receive on.
- You should now be able to use KORE 2 as a multi-timbral, multi-output instrument.
Note: To learn more about the audio and MIDI routing in KORE 2, consult the KORE 2 manual as found under Documentation in the KORE 2 program folder.
