IconEdit Viewing Patch Names (Editor Window)


Multi Patch editors are capable of displaying the actual sound/Patch names referenced in most Multi editors. To display the names however, it is necessary to have a Bank containing the names loaded into the program. If the Multi is being edited from a Set or Collection or the Multi is being edited from a Bank which in being edited from a Collection, the program first looks to the Collection for a Bank of the correct type to display the names. If there is no Set or Collection involved in the editing, the Bank must be loaded in the program. With a correctly loaded Bank you will see for example, "Trumpet" instead of "INT 1" and "Thump Bass" instead of "INT 2".


Option 1. Follow these steps to make sound names visible

1.Load an instrument group from the Studio by double-clicking on the instrument's picture
2.Edit the Multi Bank from the newly created Set
3.Edit a Multi from the Multi Bank.

Option 2. Follow these steps to make sound names visible:

1.Load the Bank containing the instrument's sounds (usually a Patch/Voice/Sound Bank).
2.Load a Multi out of the instrument. Along with the sound numbers will be a display of the actual sound names drawn from the Patch Bank loaded earlier

If the software can not find a loaded Patch Bank, it will display only the number of the selected sound.


This first graphic shows an 01/W Combi editor without a Patch Bank loaded. The right column only has the Patch reference numbers but not the actual names.


After loading an 01/W Program Bank and redrawing the Combi editor, the following is displayed. The names of the Programs are now visible instead of the reference numbers.
