How to use the Mixer View
The Mixer View in a lot of ways will feel very familiar to you if you are used to any kind of sequencer/analog mixer.
In this View you can switch microphones on/off, adjust volume, panorama, mute/solo mic positions and perform Mic Merges.
There are two tabs within the Mixer View: the actual Mixer and the Mic Remote.
The Mixer provides access to all loaded instruments and their mic positions.
Each Instrument in the Articulation List has its own parent channel with the name of that instrument.
The Instrument Fade will adjust the overall volume of that instrument; preserving the individual mic positions volumes set for the different microphone positions (see Microphone Channels in the next section). In essence, it works like a group channel for all microphones of a particular instrument.
You can Solo or Mute individual instruments by clicking the respective buttons.
When the microphone channels for the instrument are shown (see below), the Mic Merge button becomes available, which lets you merge your current mic mix down to a single, new stereo position.
At the bottom right of every instrument channel, you can expand the available microphone positions. All installed mic positions for this instrument will be shown with a standard channel strip.
Click the On/Off button above the position channel to enable or disable it.
Mic Channel Controls
Each mic channel has regular mixer controls. The fader above the mic position name controls the volume of that position. Mute/Solo mutes or soloes the respective position. The panorama slider at the top lets you adjust the stereo panorama. Take care when adjusting this! Most OT instruments are recorded in their standard seating positions and have room ambience. Their panning is already contained in the actual samples, so any panning you apply yourself will adjust the room response, as well!
Below the mic position name, you can select an output to route this position to. These outputs will be available as plugin outputs in your host software. Consult the user guide of your host to find out how to access them in its mixer.
The Mic Remote lets you control all mic positions of all loaded instruments from one channel list. If multiple loaded instruments share a mic channel, all settings you make here will be applied to all mic positions of that name across all loaded instruments.
See Mic Remote for details.
