Output and Effects

  • Hello guys :)

    I have been trying to use more than 1 channel within fruity loops 12. I figured out how to make the midi-out channels and can map the 16 different virus channels to those. Now the problem is how to apply effects to these midi-outs. From searching around I found that I could set a channel output settings to usb1 / usb2 LR and apply effects normally to those. I saw however that others have access to a usb3 LR which is greyed out for me.

    I read something about multi output, but didn't get a grasp on it.
    Could someone please explain to me the difference between usb1/2/3 or point me in the direction of why I cant use usb3 main out? Fruity loops related?

    Also if there is another way to apply effects directly to the midi out channels that would be great as well. Surely it must be possible to put external effects on more than 2 separate instruments at a time using the usb1/2 method.

    I will supply extra information if needed. Thanks for your help.

  • You have to enable the "3 outputs" option in Virus Control (under Patch Utility / Config). Also, you have to map all of the 3 stereo outputs to 3 different mixer channels in FL Studio.
