Dual Monitors on your Sonic – Take 2!

Months ago we connected a second monitor up to our Sonic. At the time, we were still deciding about using the internal P/C to host various music apps vs. running a dedicated external P/C. We’ve tried both configurations and as it turns out, we are spending more time trying various configurations running on the internal P/C.

Over the past day or two that brought up a few discussions about screen size and ways to run with a second monitor connected to your Sonic. This allows the touch screen of the organ to do exactly what it is for – Operate the organ. On the second screen you could / can display your VST or possibly your favorite sheet music application. Let’s take a quick look and demo the config we tried this morning:

    Hi Curt,

    Excellent !! A job well done.

    With VB3 I’m afraid that’s as big as it gets. Probably sized that way to fit nicely into a DAW.

    Brilliant Curt,

    Just what I was suggesting.

    Have you tried this with the other VSTs (Hauptwerk, VB3 etc.) and can they be expanded to full size ?

      Jeff – Good idea! Honestly pretty sure we will be using Kontakt 99+% of the time so I didn’t even think to try that.

      1. VB3 – Yep, we were able to move that to the 2nd monitor BUT not able to change size. We are only running the demo so not sure if that would improve if we owned the full blown version?

      2. Hauptwerk – Also able to move to monitor # 2 AND change the size.

      3. And just for fun – Why not try both Hauptwerk and Kontakt at the same time?

      All of that will bring us back full circle to the different way things could be configured and what makes the most sense for each owner. Next step in our journey will be a follow-up video showing load time impact of a Kontakt Instrument Bank.
