Formerly known as the Patch Browser, the Device Browser displays device chains that are saved on your hard drive. Instead of loading an instrument and some effects, you can load everything at once by loading a device chain (formerly known as a patch). A device chain is made up of an instrument, any effects that were loaded with the instrument when the device chain was saved, the parameters for the instrument and effects, and remote control settings for the instrument and effects. The Device Browser appears when you click the right button in the Add Track section that's just above Track 1 in the Track pane.
Here's a picture of the Device Browser:
The Device Browser has the following components:
- The Device Chains button--displays the device chains that are on your hard drive. Clicking the name of a device chain loads it into the currently-selected track.
- The DXi and VSTi Instruments button--displays the DXi, VSTi, and ReWire instruments and applications that are on your hard drive. Clicking the name of an instrument or ReWire application loads it into the currently-selected track.
- Most Recently Used list--at the top of the right column is a numbered list of your most recently used instruments or device chains.
