Select patch settings in the Patch Library

When you open a concert or select a patch, the Patch Library opens in the Patch Inspector below the workspace. The Patch Library contains a variety of patches optimized for the instrument the concert is designed for. You can quickly audition patch settings in the Patch Library and choose a setting for the selected patch. You can also search for patch settings by name.

Select a patch in the Patch Library

  1. Look through the settings in the Patch Library to find the one you want to use.

  2. Click the patch setting.

You can start playing the patch immediately using the selected patch setting.

Search for patch settings by name

  1. Choose Find in Library from the Action pop-up menu in the upper-right corner of the Patch Inspector.

  2. Enter the name of the patch setting you want to find.

  3. Click Find.

    The first patch setting with the text you entered appears selected in the Patch Library.

  4. To find subsequent patch settings with the same name, choose Find Again in Library from the Action pop-up menu.

Note: If you have saved multiple patches using the Save as Set command (or the Export as Set command in MainStage 1.0) in the Action pop-up menu, the saved file appears as a patch in the Patch Library unless you have selected a different location for saving the file. Clicking the saved file in the Patch Library causes an alert to appear when the individual patches are opened from the .patch file.
