Hi,

can someone please explain what is the meaning of the little chain icon at the left of an instrument in Instrument box?

I would also know why some instrument are colored white while  others are orange.

Thank you

Regards

The chain icon indicates that the instrument is restricted to playing on a single track, which is a limitation of Plugins and sample-based instruments that use Effects in the instrument editor. The orange text (or other colour, depending on the current Theme) is just another visual indicator that the instrument uses something other than samples (Plugins will automatically insert some default text, but you can rename this).
