If you are using a different DAW that is not covered by the project files we offer, you can easily build the template yourself and still have all the advantages.
The main time-saving thing about it are the Performances filled with 100 orchestration presets each.
The template was designed to provide a ready-made routing and instrument layout of a full symphonic orchestra fitting to that – but there is no special magic going on there. You can easily recreate it in your DAW of choice.
The first step is to download the Performance files and import them into Divisimate.
Open Divisimate and navigate to the “Perform” Tab. Open the menu on the upper left and click on “Manage”.
In the Performance Manager you can now import a performance including all of its presets. Click on “Import…” at the bottom right, navigate to the folder where you saved the downloaded files and select the first downloaded *.dpfe file.
Repeat this process for any other Performances that you wish to use in Divisimate.
Now you can load your Performance of choice and use all included presets in Divisimate.
Next open your DAW of choice and create a new project. This will be the project in which you recreate the template routings.
This process will be a bit different in every software. Refer to our quickstart guides for different DAWs to understand the process of your specific DAW.
Create 32 individual tracks for virtual instruments in your project. Each of these tracks will need to be set to receive MIDI from a different Divisimate Port. Here’s the layout of Track Names, Instruments and Divisimate Port Assignments you need to recreate:
Divisimate Port 1: Piccolo
Divisimate Port 2: Flute 1
Divisimate Port 3: Flute 2
Divisimate Port 4: Oboe 1
Divisimate Port 5: Oboe 2
Divisimate Port 6: English Horn
Divisimate Port 7: Clarinet 1
Divisimate Port 8: Clarinet 2
Divisimate Port 9: Bass Clarinet
Divisimate Port 10: Bassoon 1
Divisimate Port 11: Bassoon 2
Divisimate Port 12: Contrabassoon
Divisimate Port 13: Horn 1
Divisimate Port 14: Horn 2
Divisimate Port 15: Horn 3
Divisimate Port 16: Horn 4
Divisimate Port 17: Trumpet 1
Divisimate Port 18: Trumpet 2
Divisimate Port 19: Trumpet 3
Divisimate Port 20: Trumpet 4
Divisimate Port 21: Tenor Trombone 1
Divisimate Port 22: Tenor Trombone 2
Divisimate Port 23: Tenor Trombone 3
Divisimate Port 24: Bass Trombone
Divisimate Port 25: Tuba
Divisimate Port 26: Piano
Divisimate Port 27: Harp
Divisimate Port 28: 1st Violin
Divisimate Port 29: 2nd Violin
Divisimate Port 30: Violas
Divisimate Port 31: Cellos
Divisimate Port 32: Double Basses
Now you have all of the instrument tracks routed and correctly named, but they still do not contain any instruments.
Follow the naming of the tracks and load your virtual instruments of choice into each of the instrument tracks. You can use virtual instruments from any developer and using any kind of sampler plugin you prefer.
Finally when all tracks have instruments loaded, you can load one of the presets from the dedicated performances and record enable all the tracks.
Have fun playing, composing and exploring the orchestrations we prepared for you!
