Pro Tools 11 – setting up a multi-channel, multi-output Virtual Instrument Using East West PLAY

Hi Music Producers!

Thanks for subscribing to the ASK ANDY Production Newsletter. Here in Santa Fe, NM its summer! And its getting hot.


Here is a short tutorial on setting up a mulit-output Virtual Instrument in Pro Tools 11 – using EAST WEST PLAY.

This allows you to record MIDI data on discrete tracks, and have that data trigger separate channels in the VI (Play) and have that audio returned on discrete auxiliary tracks. Since the audio returns on discrete tracks, you can mix volume / eq / add ambiences as need for each particular sound instead of having everything mashed together.

Here is how to do it (and keep in mind that this wonderful musical sample could use a lot of finessing to make it really sound musical):

Have a look and feel free to leave a comment about the video and if it was useful to you.

If you have anything that you would like to know more about feel free to email me at and I will slate it for a future episode.

Take care and happy producing!
