Phil, After recently adding a MIDI pedalboard to my ES, I am final venturing deeper into performance mode wanting to use voices from my three PLG boards; slot 1 is my PLG 150 AN synth, slot 2 is my virtual acoustic used with by BC3A and slot 3 is my DX7. Please check / correct my following understanding of what is allowed and available;
1) I can assign either PLG presets or PLG user voices to any of the four parts in a performance.
2) I can pull voices from all three PLG boards (one per board) in a single performance and all three PLG voices can be played together.
3) If I want to note shift a PLG preset to lower it a couple octaves so I can split the keyboard put it up at the two highest octaves thereby freeing up the middle and lower registers for comping and bass, then I must create a PLG user voice first with the desired note shift.
4) As far as saving my work after creating user performances and any PLG user voices, do I need to save anything to a smart media or USB before powering off? I am thinking that if I am only attaching PLG presets to performances then NO, they are saved in internal memory, but if I create a USER PLG voice maybe I lose them unless I store them externally somewhere..
