Dialog box reference ► Insert Soft Synth Options dialog

This dialog box appears when you use the Insert > Soft Synths > (name of the synth you want to insert) command, the Insert > ReWire Device > (name of the ReWire device you want to insert) command, or click the Insert button in the Synth Rack view and choose a synth from the pop-up menu.
This dialog box inserts the soft synth whose name you clicked into your project. Inserting it means that the synth’s name is added to the synth and audio tracks’ Input menus and the MIDI tracks’ Output and Channel menus. Besides inserting the synth, the dialog box has some options:
*
Simple Instrument Track. If you select this option, the synth’s MIDI input and main audio output appear in a single track strip.
*
MIDI Source. If you select this option, a new MIDI track appears that lists the particular soft synth you chose in the MIDI track’s Output field. You still need to choose values in the MIDI track’s Patch and possibly Channel menus.
*
Synth Track Folder. If you select this option, new synth tracks and associated MIDI tracks appear in a track folder. Each new instance of a synth gets its own folder.
*
First Synth Audio Output. If you select this option, a new synth track appears that uses the synth’s first audio output as an audio input.
*
All Synth Audio Outputs: Stereo. If you select this option, one new stereo synth track appears for each stereo audio output that the synth you chose has. Each of the new tracks uses a different one of the synth’s outputs as an audio input.
*
All Synth Audio Outputs: Mono. If you select this option, two new mono synth tracks (one Left and one Right) appear for each stereo audio output that the synth you chose has. Each pair of new synth tracks uses a different one of the synth’s outputs as an audio input.
*
Synth Property Page. If you choose this option, the interface (property page) of the synth you’re inserting appears when you insert it.
*
Synth Rack view. If you choose this option, the Synth Rack view appears each time you insert another synth (or another instance of a synth you’ve already inserted).
*
{Automation track drop-down menu}. By default, the automation data for a synth appears on the synth track associated with that synth. Use this menu to choose any other track to display the data on, including tracks that are already displaying other synth’s automation data.
*
Recall Assignable Controls. If you create some knobs in the Synth Rack to control certain parameters on a particular synth, you can display the same knobs every time you insert an instance of that synth by enabling this check box.
If you check this option, this dialog box appears every time you use the Insert > Soft Synths > (name of the synth you want to insert) command, the Insert > ReWire Device > (name of the synth you want to insert) command, or click the Insert button in the Synth Rack view and choose a synth from the pop-up menu. If you always insert soft synths in the same way, you can uncheck this option so you don’t have to deal with the dialog box each time. To open the dialog box when the option is unchecked, click the Insert Soft Synth Options button in the Synth Rack view toolbar.
