In my attempts to create an orchestral template with GPO, it required 20 instances, each with 16 midi slots assigned. That was two or three more than GPO could gracefully handle, so now I’m looking at workarounds.
I can import a group of 16 midi tracks, all assigned to the appropriate channels from another project, but it doesn’t bring the VST plugin with it. There are track presets, but as best I can tell that’s only one track at a time.
The idea of the template was to have everything loaded so I could just create a project and start playing without having to screw around with configuration. Since that had problems, I’m now trying to find a way to load an instance of GPO and 16 tracks pointed to it with one click. Need violins? Click. There’s a GPO instance loaded with all the violin instruments and articulations, and all the tracks pre-mapped.
Does anyone have any clever ideas for such a workaround?
