Hey guys I hope you can help me. I want to combine MIDI instruments, so that I can have two sound playing the same time, on the same track. Example a piano sound mix with a vintage key. I can`t use Sample One, because Sample One only takes audio? Du you know how to do this? Hope you can help?

There's no way that I know of to have both instruments on the same track - I would simply duplicate the MIDI track once created, and then have a different instrument assigned to each of the two tracks.

This will also give you the added benefit of the ability to mix and pan the individual sounds to taste.

Hey Ryan
Thanks for the answer? I will try that!! The thing is, that I wanna make my own pads with the sounds from the program. In pro tools you can drag 2 midi instruments into a sampler, and have them play at the same time. I was hoping that there was a way in studio one to do that..

And if you want them "together" with similar FX applied etc then send them to the same bus.

I don't think there's a way to do this, but if you take the approach I suggested you will be able to then bounce the two tracks down to a single audio track for simplicity's sake. KiwiComposer's bussing suggestion makes good sense as well.

There is a way to do this, but it takes some work. You can create your own soundfonts. These are stored in files in the SF2 and SFZ formats. You can take your sound samples, and import them into a program called "Polyphone". You can then assign your sounds to any keys on the midi keyboard. You can import just one sample, and Polyphone can raise and lower the pitch to cover the entire keyboard, based on just one sample. Or you could assign any unique sample to any one key. (And you can use any combination of these two methods as you see fit).

I used Polyphone to get a drum kit from another program to work in Studio One (I used Presence...which works for my purposes. I haven't delved into the other instruments yet). But your soundfont should work in any instrument that works with SF2 files/soundfonts.
Also: You CAN map velocity parameters, and more.
