Working with Multi-Timbral Patches
Working with multi-timbral instruments usually means assembling individual articulation patches into a plugin and recording a single part across multiple tracks. Though working this way has its benefits, there are plenty of downsides: track counts can go through the roof ("track creep"), recording notes on separate tracks is musically unintuitive, and it's impossible to view notation because the notes for each part are splattered all over the screen.
The same part performed on just one track.
One part recorded across 5 tracks. Track creep!
To solve this problem, ARTz•ID V2 lets you operate multi-timbral patches just like keyswitching instruments and record all articulations on one track -- but without recording a single keyswitch note! Or instead of using keyboard notes, use TouchOSC or Lemur-based buttons to select articulations. This one-track multi-timbral approach facilitates huge reductions in track count, and allows parts to be viewed as cohesive notation in the score editor.
Controller Unification Feature: Allows a single stream of CC messages on one MIDI Channel to control common parameters of multiple articulations on other MIDI channels.
