It would be great if Studio one would have the External Instrument Plugin like countless other daws have.

This would eliminate the need to have 2 tracks open for external hardware ''Instrument'' And a ''SoundTrack''

This should not be that hard for the developers to make.

And I'm sure it would make a lot of people very happy.

And especially if one could save the settings so that they can load up their external synth by just dragging and dropping their saved input output preset as 1 track.

"Do not vote on this response"... I like that, have a vote.

I'd like to see an external instrument too. Presence should be external.

+1 I'm mostly an ITB kinda guy but I have a couple of analogue hardware synths and it'd be nice if they were easier to integrate into my projects.

HERE! HERE! DILLY! DILLY!  Of course, to have a pre-written file for our instrument would be great, but many of us have hard drives with tons of other banks for our external rigs.  So, if you had a means of importing an .INS file (Sonar), or whatever Cubase uses that'd be awesomer!

of course! This should be considered as a must have for studio integration. The separated midi and audio tracks are so lousy. I used to be a Cubase user and it has this for like 10 years... Please do something! :)

Yes a thousand times over I love the way that Live deals with this. There "External Instrument" device is quick easy and gets the job done. Was so surprised to find that Studio One did not have the same thing.

It would be a great thing. I have bought Korg SQ1 CV-Sequencer with some MIDI functions. It's not that easy to setup it in Studio One.

An external instrument with Input (I/O Configuration) and Delay compensation so it switches to low latency monitoring mode when record enabled and Automatic Pre-note-cc-midi-trigger when playing to compensate latency. Also is a must to have Midnam/Middev Compatibility so we can control Program Changes in external modules. Please! Please! Please!

This is really important for all who have external midi-hardware like synthesizers and keyboard-workstations, please don't forget us. Please integrate also the possibility to use something like patchname-scripts (called in cubase) or instrument-definitions (called in sonar) or invent something better for easily changing patches/programs within Studio One (not only as it is now with a bank-number and a patch-number). That would be a great step further in workflow, for which Studio One is popular. So please take a look on it. Thanks in advance.
