After jam­ming with AAS’ Chroma­phone 2, we load up Klev­grand’s Jussi. The two in­stru­ments are pretty dif­fer­ent, but we’re go­ing to layer them to­gether. In Stu­dio One, drag­ging two in­stru­ments onto the same track and click­ing Com­bine cre­ates a new Multi In­stru­ment.

In the Chan­nel Edi­tor, we get a chan­nel fader and con­trols for each of the in­stru­ments. We can also Trans­pose them and set the range of keys that will ap­ply to one, the other or both us­ing the Range con­trols.

At this point, we can add more in­stru­ments to the chan­nel, or we can load a cou­ple of Note FX over whichever one we choose. Even more fun is when we start to add au­dio ef­fects into the mix. Once we load an ef­fect plugin into the in­sert slot of one of the in­stru­ments, we can ac­cess a ded­i­cated Chan­nel Edi­tor for that in­stru­ment.


Here we can load ef­fects into a sig­nal chain, and use Split­ter de­vices to process dif­fer­ent ef­fects in par­al­lel – whether that’s us­ing vol­ume blend­ing, fre­quency splits or left/right chan­nel splits. There’s a load of po­ten­tial when us­ing this flex­i­ble sys­tem.
