Multi Output in Ableton Live with SSD5.5

1. Instantiate SSD5 on a MIDI Track in Ableton Live. Go to the "Mix" tab in the plugin, and set the output for your tracks in SSD5 to the appropriate track in the SSD5 Mixer. 

 In this example, all Kick samples will be routed to "out 2 st", the snare will be routed to "out 3 st", etc.

Note: Please make sure to start from "Out 2 St", as "Out 1 St" will route your channel through your main SSD5.5 track. 


2. Close SSD and bring up your Arrangement View. Go to Create → Insert Audio Track. Make sure to create as many new audio tracks as the number of separate outs you want to route out of from SSD5.5.

3. In your Arrangement View, make sure the "Show I-O" button is engaged. Then, go to the right of your audio track, and click where it says "Ext. In". Then from the drop-down menu, select "SSDSampler5". Repeat this for each audio track.

After selecting SSD5 as the input for your audio tracks, click on the drop-down menu right below the input menu, then select one of listed outputs for SSDSampler5. Select Output #2 for the first audio track, then Output #3 for the second audio track, etc.

Lastly, select all of your audio tracks that you have set up for multi-out and engage arm record on all. You should now able to play SSD5.5 and have different instruments play through different audio tracks. You can also rename your audio tracks, according to the SSD instrument you have routed through each audio track.
