I didn't know I could choose!
I launched a new song from the template menu:
Record + Mix> 32+EQ+Dyn+FX Returns.
Then, I pressed 'import' and the Midi objects wound up on Midi channels which have no inserts above the faders. I watched a video, which seemed to tell me that I needed to create an Aux track so that: the Midi track could send info to an instrument on the Aux track. When I did that, the Aux track had inserts BUT there was no 'plugins' option in the menu above the track. I repeated this with an Instrument track but found a similar problem... 'plugins' was visible but greyed out.
Since then, I've launched another song from a Hip Hop template which seems to have Midi AND inserts AND instruments all on the same track Ã¡ la Logic!!!!
I AM confused! Â§:-@
1) If I ROUTE a signal from a Midi track to an instrument track, will I then be able to choose a plugin there?
2) Why did the video tell me to create an Aux track rather than an Instrument track?
3) If it is possible to do it all on one track, what's all this other stuff about?
4) Is this confusion (maybe) something to do with changes introduced in ProTools 10?
PS. It's ProTools 10
PPS. Whenever I launch a new song, I get:
"Some outputs or sends were made inactive
Please visit the I/O Setup dialog for more information.
Some paths were made inactive because they could not be assigned to existing path definitions."
Could this be affecting things?
