For example, if I want a particular Kontakt library for bass guitar, BFD 3 for drums, Ujam for guitar, and Halion SOnic GM for everything else, what is the best way to do that?

Hi,

You'd have to assign the plugins to the tracks on an otherwise blank song file, then save it, and use it as a starting point for any future projects.

Thanks

Thanks. The problem I am having is that most of the virtual instruments I try play no sound or are playing the wrong the notes. I take it the VST needs to be set with a GM mapping. Anything else?

But that does not work when importing a midi song.. So how to have a default setting, with assigned VST in each track, (Melody and Solo) that stays there when importing miditracks?

Hi Trygve,

You could always assign Kontakt (or any plugin) to those tracks, and save that as a template. Importing a MIDI file won't remove the plugins, but this won't really save you much time, if any.

Also, you won't really be able to pre-select your sounds in the template, unless every MIDI file uses the same channel for every instrument (this doesn't tend to be the case).

Musicmanicny, sorry I didn't reply sooner. I can't imagine why they'd be playing wrong notes, but if you call our tech support line, I'm sure we'll figure it out. Regarding them playing the wrong sounds, most plugins can't be configured to work with GM, so you'll likely have to manually re-assign the patches to each track on a song-by-song basis, unless you use the same style for every single song.

Thanks

BiaB is not the answer for this you need to get the basic song file started there using a good gm midi set and then move over to RB or some other DAW
