Using an External Instrument Editor with the EXS24 mkII

The EXS24 mkII allows you to use external applications such as Redmatica’s Keymap to edit your EXS instruments.

To open your EXS instruments in an external instrument editor
  1. Choose Options > “Open in external Instrument Editor” in the EXS24 mkII Parameter window.

  2. In the file selector, locate and select the desired instrument editor software.

  3. Repeat step 1, but choose the “Open in [name of external instrument editor]” command. This is the same command as above, but it is automatically renamed after an external instrument editor is assigned.

  4. Edit the instrument in the external instrument editor, then use the external instrument editor to send the instrument back to Logic Express.

Important: You need to save the edited instrument in Logic Express—not the external editor—to make any instrument changes permanent.

To reassign the external instrument editor
  • Hold down Option while choosing Options > “Open in [name of external instrument editor].”
