Sonik Synth 2 - Help!
Oct 10th, 2008, 11:09
I installed IK Multimedia's Sonik Synth 2 but can't figure out how to get the plugin to work in Logic 8. I can play single notes in Sonik Synth 2 as a standalone and I'm pretty sure Sonik Synth 2 is properly installed. So far I can play back multiple MIDI Tracks in Logic that fire Sonik Synth 2 sounds. It's just that I can't seem to fully control which patches work on each separate track. I seem to be getting closer. By assigning all Sonik Synth 2 patches to MIDI channel one, I can play multiple Logic tracks simultaneously using the Sonik Synth sounds. But I can't seem to control the patches with precision. It's very likely my problem has more to do with Sonik Synth 2 than with Logic... Logic sorts out MIDI channel assignments since it forces each individual MIDI channel appropriate to the same track: that is, track 1 = channel 1, track 2 = channel 2, etc. I suspect it might also have to do with routing external soft-synths in Logic. Can anyone help me understand how to rout Sonik Synth 2's voice patches? It seems the trouble might have something to do with bussing or inserts or auxes or inputs or outputs (Ha!) but I can't figure it out. I'm sure the fault lies with me instead of Logic or Sonik Synth 2. Very frustrating! Sonik Synth 2 uses the Sound Tank sample engine and basically works the same way as Sound Tank does. It's very likely my problem has more to do with Sonik Synth 2 than with Logic... Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks!
