MIDI FX don't really seem to work

edited May 13 in Support

What's up with the MIDI FX in Nanostudio 2? They don't seem to work unless they are a sequencer.

QuantiChord doesn't work. StepPolyArp Unit doesn't work as an arp, only a sequencer, and Fugue Machine works.

Then, if it does work, it doesn't record the notes in a pattern.

Manual says MIDI FX are supposed to effect the notes in a pattern (If I recall right). In other word the chain goes: Notes in pattern > MIDI FX > Audio Out.

Like I say though, it only seems to work if the AU is a sequencer.

Ideally the output of the MIDI FX would be recorded as a pattern, with the chain being: Note input (optional, for arps, etc.) > MIDI FX > Recorded to pattern (if record is on) > Audio Out.

    all MIDIfx bugs will be fixed in upcoming update.. things like SPA or MIDI Tools pack will work after this update, soon ;)

    Will it record the MIDI FX output? Or just effect the notes in a pattern? I much prefer the former, because you’re then given a full MIDI pattern to work with. Logic Pro does the latter, and it’s weak because you can’t do all that much with it.

    Now, latest update is answer ;)

    You cannot record it directly, but there is relative skmple way.

    • on track where is MIDI plugin which output you want to record, put "MIDI Tools Route" plugin after plugin which you want record
    • create new track, switch to this track and hit play/record

      all notes generated by plugin on first track will be recorded to this second track

    @dendy Is MIDI Tools Route an NS2 plug-in?

  • this: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/midi-tools/id1446209019?mt=8

    it's package of various plugins, "Route" basically sends midi to selected virtual midi port.. because in this update NS added own "Nanostudio 2" virtual midi port, it is easy now - route simoly sends audio to NS MIDI inout, and from this inout you can record it on other track ;)

    So the update fixed the midi aus. Still would like to be able to record though, and it’s weird because in the mixer you can send midi to parent track, no set up will record though.

    Ideal chain is still: keyboard (internal or external) > midi fx > track > synth > audio out

    That way it’s all on one track, and you get a proper midi pattern. Cubasis does this right.

  • yeah, direct midi recording is on todo list, but beliece me - workaround with MIDI Tools Route plugin is more easy than it sounds...

    Here check this video example :

  • Great video my friend! Short and straight to the point! Thanks!

  • you're welcome ;)
