Ableton Tutorial: Multi Midi In & Audio Out of the UVI Workstation

In this video tutorial I will show you how to get multiple midi ins to and audio outs from the UVI Workstation in Ableton Live.

Get UVI Instuments — PIB/UVI

The UVI Workstation works a lot like the Kontakt Instrument player. You can have a number of instruments in one instance of the workstation. You can have all those instruments play together from one midi source, or route multiple midi sources to each of them, and, if you want, have multiple audio outputs for each.

This can be very beneficial for a number of reasons. Let me show you how it’s done.

Drop the UVI Workstation onto a new MIDI channel in Ableton Live. Pick a software instrument patch. Hit some keys are add some midi notes to a clip to test that everything is functioning.

Now, add two extra midi channels in Live and put an External Instrument on to each.

Set them both up as picture below, only make sure the second Midi Output and audio from is 2 and 3. Otherwise you will be doubling something up somewhere.

Also, add a different set of midi notes in a midi clip to each so it will be easier to tell if things are working.

Now, jump back into the Workstation. Click the middle menu button to see the “Multi” menu. Add a new patch the the second and third slots. Their midi out puts should automatically be “A2” & “A3”. Make sure that is the case and switch them, if need be.

Then click the gear icon in the top right of the module. Click the “Main Output” button for both. For the A2 patch change the output to Output 2 and for the A3 patch change the output to Output 3.
