Working with Aux FX in Multi Mode

Question:
How can I choose a new Aux FX chain for my Multi and adjust the send levels per zone?

Answer:

The Artis offers one global Aux FX per Multi with individually adjustable Send Levels per zone.

The Auxiliary Effect (Aux FX) used in a given Multi is determined by the:

The amount of chosen Aux FX heard in each zone is determined by the:


Aux FX Channel

When the "AuxFx" parameter (see below) is set to "0 None" (the default), the Aux FX Channel parameter specifies which Program's built-in Aux FX Chain will be used as the one Aux FX Chain for the entire Multi.

For ex, if the Aux FX Channel parameter is set to Ch1 (the default), then the built-in Aux FX associated with whatever program is on channel 1 of your Multi will be what gets used for all zones of the Multi. This makes it easy to use the same reverb, for ex., for your Multi that the primary program is already using in Program mode.

You can, however, set the Aux FX Channel to *any* of the MIDI channels currently in use within the Multi.

Here's how to change the the Aux Effect Channel:

  1. With the desired Multi selected, press the soft [EDIT] button.

  2. Press the [COMMON] soft button. Use the PARAM buttons to highlight the "Aux FX Channel":

  3. Use the [previous/-] [next/+] buttons, data wheel and/or alphanumeric keypad to choose the desired MIDI channel.

    For ex. here we have chosen channel 2. As such, the Aux FX built-in to the program on channel 2 will be what is used for all zones of this Multi.


  4. Press [SAVE] to store your changes.


AuxFx (Override)

Instead of using the Aux FX of one of the existing Programs in your Multi (Aux FX Channel, above), the Aux FX Chain for your Multi can also be manually selected, overriding the Aux FX Channel, allowing you to choose from amongst hundreds of built-in FX combinations (for a complete list of FX Chains, download the "Artis Series Factory Objects List").

Here's how to manually select an FX Chain for your Multi:

  1. With the desired Multi selected, press the soft [EDIT] button.

  2. Press the [COMMON] soft button. As needed, use the PARAM buttons to highlight "AuxFX":

    Set to '0 None' by default, this indicates no manual selection has been made and currently the Aux FX being heard are those as set by the "Aux FX Channel" selection (above).


  3. Use the [previous/-] [next/+] buttons, data wheel and/or alphanumeric keypad to select a new FX Chain for this Multi.

    For ex. here we have chosen FX Chain "5 Small Hall". As such, "5 Small Hall" will be the FX Chain used in this Multi.


  4. Press [SAVE] to store your changes.


Aux Send Levels

Once you have determined what FX Chain is to be used for your Multi, adjusting the Aux Send Levels is the final step. This allows you to determine how much of the chosen effect (wet/dry) will get applied to each zone.

Here's how to set the Aux Send Level per zone:

  1. With the desired Multi selected, press the soft [EDIT] button.

  2. On the [MAIN] page, use the PARAM buttons to highlight the "Aux Send Level" parameter:

  3. Press the [Zone] soft button to advance through and select the desired Zone to adjust first:

    For ex. here we have chosen Zone 3.


    Note: by default the Aux Send Level may be set to 'Program'. This means the current zone is using the preset default FX levels as set within the given Program.

  4. Use the [previous/-] [next/+] buttons, data wheel and/or alphanumeric keypad, to change the Aux Send Level to any desired amount (range = 0-127). Remember this is the send level for just the currently selected zone:

    For ex. here we have chosen "75" and this only applies to Zone 3.

  5. Go back and repeat steps 3 and 4 until all zones are set as desired.

  6. Press [SAVE] to store your changes.
