Shortcuts for Air & Production modes on multi-instance licenses

Simian has up to 9 different sessions. Each session has its own set of Program Options and Hardware Options settings. With a non-multi instance license, when you launch Simian it will load in to air mode and any additional instances of Simian you launch after that will run in production mode. With a multi-instance license, all additional instances of Simian will instead launch in air mode. The second instance of Simian can be put in to session 2, and configured differently than session 1. You will need sound card resources for each session to have its own playback device assignments and outputs. For example, one AudioScience sound card with 2 or more outputs or two separate ASI cards.

Here are instructions for creating shortcuts to open Simian in to a specific mode and session, which will make it easy to manage.

For a second Air mode shortcut to session 2:
C:\BSI32\Simian.exe /AIR /session:2

Here are the instructions for making a production mode Simian shortcut into session 1:
C:\BSI32\Simian.exe /PROD /session:1

Here are the instructions for making a production mode Simian shortcut into session 2:
C:\BSI32\Simian.exe /PROD /session:2
Remove the general Simian shortcut from the Windows Startup folder and add the two AIR mode shortcuts in there instead.
