Loving the 2.7 update and watched David on Youtube demonstrating orchestral divisi multi out using Kontakt libraries. I don’t have any orchestral Kontakt libraries and have tried to get it to work with BBCSO Discover in Logic Pro with no success.
BBCSO is not multi timbral but that only means you use it the way it was designed - 1 instance per channel. So say channels 1 through 4 thats 4 instances. Violins 1 channel 1, Violins 2 channel 2, etc.
Remember all notes of the chord comes out channel 1. Also if you only have 3 note chords that’s only going to be 3 channels.
now I understand why I have difficulties in routings
now I suspect the OPUS Brass and the Garritan World Instruments are the same, YUK
so I need multiple Scaler and dedicated Pitch for each instruments
what a mess for a jammer
anyway, BBSCO devs have templates for free, that help a bit
I downloaded the version 2.7 earlier and watched the videos, have been trying to get the multi out to function in Logic, so far no luck. However it worked very well in Unify so if you have that you can get BBCSO Discover to play in Logic using Unify instead of Kontakt.
I will continue trying to hack Scaler 2.7 into Logic pro X so that the individual midi outs are working, in ReMidi 2 and InstaComposer which are similar this is possible.
and here is the evidence I am smart enough to avoid that
BTW, there is a further reason to avoid this workflow: if you use just one Scaler instance, all instruments will receive the same series of chords, patterns, riffs, etc., and you also lose the Master & Follower feature to add variations
So I suspect that the multi-out is wonderful for multi-timbral synths like Omnisphere, but I suspect they are not very useful for orchestral plugins where divisimate is better
the environment method didn’t work for me see the above posts.
We got there. Element Scaler BBCSO 5xStereo.logicx
I am using Logic 10.7.4 on Big Sur 11.6
I have made a Template 5 x stereo out of BBCSO Discover version 1.5 you need this, I had to update, they call it repair in the Spitfire Audio.app
Scaler 2.7 using the multi voice midi output.
You will also need this freebie Kushview Element available here —> Download Element - Kushview
Linux and Windows 64 bit for those who may need it, for those others above download the DMG and install. AU is what the above needs this is a Logic Pro X Template.
How do we get the Template, is there any storage facility available here ? I have only been here a few hours
it is 1.2 MB
I don’t appreciate the Kontakt method because the original poster wanted to use BBCSO Discover with Scaler 2.7 multi voice out. I have done it 5 separate channels of midi routed to 5 instances of Discover.
Yes I can’t get Logic to accept the individual outputs from a midi splitter, works with other software. I had some similar Issues with Arturia pigments (using the Pigments sequencers for other things) and succeeded in doing that with Elements and Unify. Advantage using Elements is definitely the audio outputs, downside everything runs on one thread. 16 separate midi channels with Space designer was full load on one of eight.
Unify spreads the load far better, each new midi channel gets a new thread, downside only stereo out, If you are a big fan of BBCSO Discover John (Plugin Guru) and Geoff Stradling’s preset bank is something else. of course it costs. What I heard from my system today makes the 2.7 Scaler multi voice out worthwhile with the Discover software.
Thanks. All very interesting and I’m a dabbler! I might try setting up a Scaler follower farm and give each of those an instrument on a midi channel and see if it works. If not I’ll be spending more time with Omnisphere. Tried Kontakt, easy enough to set up but I’m not a big fan of being inside Kontakt to add effects / mix…
Hi, feel the same about Kontakt doesn’t do it for me, Omnisphere may be the deal, I don’t have it and don’t want to go there. There are in the meantime other DAW s out there that handle midi a lot better than Logic. I only have that and Reason which is a completely different ball game, I won’t be getting a new DAW either. Making do with what I have which to be honest is far too much. Black Friday hmmm …its kind of planned.
