It's a performance editor, not a Librarian, if you think it can help you to manage all your user performance area and library area by arranging, swaping ....., it's not the case, it will not alllow you to arrange performances.

You load one performance (or start from scratch if you want) you edit the performance and store it on your Montage and save it on your computer.

The thing you can do it after receive Montage all user and library data is to see what you have inside.

For example here i see my user 2 bank area and see that i have performances up to user 2 number 8, so my user bank contain 128+8 performances, you can saw all performances name, but you cannot reorganize them :

Same think for library's, after receiving all, you can see what you have inside.


The things that the editor cannot do :

- merging performances like you can do in Montage category search merge screen, you need to do it on Montage before receiving the data.
- Except part1, mport part 2 up to 16 from another performance like in montage part category search allow to select part you want to import, you need to do it on Montage before receiving the data.
- create a "user waveform", there is no option for this in the editor, it cannot access to the content page.

All functions on Montage cannot be "call" from an external device/computer, that why this 3 points cannot be done from the editor.


Things that you can do on editor and you cannot do on Montage :

- Copy FX
- Copy Control Set
- Copy Zone
- Copy Arp from a performance part to another performance (no need to import part in the performance to copy arp and after deleting this part, set copy part arp you want on perf A, call perf B, paste on perf B)
- Copy Motion seq from a performance to another (no need to import part in the performance to copy he's MS, set copy what you want, on perf A, call perf B, paste on perf B)
- Copy all envelope.(filter, AEG, Pitch, Level)
- Save individual part as AWM2 or FM-X or Drum Key file on your computer, for example you like the part 3 like a pad of a preset multipart performance, you want to use it later, save it directly as an individual part, you can load it after in the editor in a new performance (it a way to replace the part category search from part 2 to 16 also).
- Create a single part performance from a multipart performance on one click, you like a bass on a multipart performance, just want to use it for your new performance as starting point, right click on this part ==> Create performance and you have a new single part performance ready to start.

Perhaps some others things that i can not remember at this step.
