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.

Ableton Template for the INSTRUMENT 1

Platform: Windows and Mac OS X
Available to download here: Ableton

About:
This Ableton Live session is a template for using Multi-dimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE) with the INSTRUMENT 1. By setting up six individual instances of an Ableton virtual instrument, you can use string bending or fretless mode to independently bend the pitch of strings and control channel pressure. This additional setup is only necessary for independently controlling pitch bend or channel pressure, otherwise the INSTRUMENT 1 will work normally with just one instance of an Ableton virtual instrument.

This session uses a Pitch Bend Range of 24, which can be adjusted in the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor.
