Using the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 Editor
Note for Windows Users: When using the Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 Editor the INSTRUMENT 1’s MIDI port is used by the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor and can not be used by a third-party sound generator or music-making app like Ableton Live, Bitwig Studio, Cubase, etc.
In order to change your presets and try them out in a third-party music app you currently need to open the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor, make your customizations, and then exit before opening the third-party app. When the third-party app is open and you want to continue to customize your presets, you’ll need to quit before opening the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor.
