- There is a template called 1.instance.empty.48ports. Start with that one and add your tracks one at a time. Right click on each track header and reassign to the Port and channel you want for each one. (see first post docs)
- There is a similar template called 1.instance.768.tracks.48ports, which already has 768 tracks created for you. You could certainly start with that and DELETE the tracks you don't plan to use for ports 7-48
- Something else you might do before you get going is go into the environment and REMOVE the ports you're never going to use. This will make the reassign command less cluttered and busy...and might also free up environment resources in some way also, never know. I will explain below how to do that.
How to remove ports from the above template
- Let's stay you start with the empty first of the template mentioned above
- go into the environment and navigate to the environment layer called "VEP 1". You do that by looking at the top left corner of the environment window you'll see a control called "Layer", so select the VEP 1 layer.
- On this page you will see this big scary looking schematic.
- each port is represented by two objects in that scary looking schematic. Together they look like this:
- Delete each pair of unneeded ports by selecting them and hit DELETE. You can drag the lasso around a bunch of them and hit DELETE once if you like. Make sure not to accidentally delete anything else, after you lasso them, check to make sure they are the only ones highlighted with blue lettering before you hit DELETE.
- You should end up with this:
The above is kind of optional. You can leave all 48 ports in place if you feel like it, but I like to clean my projects up and remove the ports I'm not using. Maybe leave 8 around just in case. or leave them all..up to you.
IMPORTANT, also make sure you read all the notes on my first post in this thread, and make sure to setup LPX preferences per recommendations I have noted and follow all usage notes.
