Loading inserts into channels

You can load up to four inserts into each channel, excluding MIDI channels. For example, you can load specific EQ plug-ins instead of using the default EQ channel strips, and apply amp modeling plug-ins to clean guitar channels.


For more information about the plug-ins included with Dorico Elements, see the separate document Plug-in Reference.


The Mixer window is shown.


  1. In the Mixer, click Inserts in any channel strip to expand all inserts sections.
  2. Click an insert slot and select the plug-in you want to load from the menu.
  3. Optional: If you want to edit settings for the new plug-in, click Edit Insert to open its plug-in window.
  4. Optional: If you loaded EQ plug-ins, deactivate the EQ channel strip in the corresponding channels.
