Saving custom endpoint configurations

You can save any overrides you have made to endpoint configurations, such as changing the instruments and expression maps assigned to particular endpoints. This allows you to use these overrides in custom playback templates and re-use the same endpoint configurations in other projects.


  • You have opened a project containing all instruments and plug-ins that are necessary for the custom endpoint configuration.

  • You have created any necessary expression maps and playback technique combinations.

  • You have created any necessary custom playing techniques.


  1. Load the plug-ins you want.

    You can do this by applying a playback template or by adding plug-in instances manually in the VST and MIDI panel in Play mode.

  2. Change the settings for the endpoints as required.

    For example, change the instruments or expression maps assigned to each endpoint.

  3. Open the Save Endpoint Configuration dialog in one of the following ways:
    • To save a custom endpoint configuration for only a single plug-in instance, open the Endpoint Setup dialog for that plug-in instance and click Save Endpoint Configuration.

    • To save a custom endpoint configuration that includes all VST instrument or MIDI instrument plug-in instances, click Save Endpoint Configuration in the action bar of the corresponding section of the VST and MIDI panel.

  4. Enter a name for your custom endpoint configuration in the Name field.

    If you enter a name that already exists, or select an existing custom endpoint configuration from the menu, the existing custom endpoint configuration is overwritten.

  5. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


The current state of either the selected plug-in instance or all plug-in instances in the corresponding section is saved as a custom endpoint configuration. This includes any custom playing techniques included in any of the expression/percussion maps.

After Completing This Task

You can include custom endpoint configurations in custom playback templates, which allows you to use endpoint configurations in other projects.
