Postby tigerintheboat; Tue Dec 19, 2017 9:45 pm Midi in and Midi Out

I want to simply key in some melody notes into a track! What should the settings be. I have Midi In set to my midi keyboard.

All I want is for my midi notes to be recorded. But I need to hear then when they are played. But if Midi Out is set to the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth, the delay makes it hard to record. Everything else gets me silence, although the keystrokes get recorded.

In my DAW I only specify the Midi keyboard as In; I simply want RC to play back what I write with a Soundfont instrument.

Please help!

in this case you need to use Asio audio out .. Settings/Audio Device/Asio

You don't have to set MIDI Out, set it to "None". Using the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth is not recommended because of the big delay you mentioned.
Make sure you set up audio under Settings / Audio. Set a soundfont for your track in which you are recording into.
If the track is selected, you will hear the incoming notes. The MIDI in preview is active for whatever track is selected. Then you can start recording.

Yes, it works now. I tried Midi Out before set to None and got silence.

When you say "Set a soundfont for your track in which you are recording into," you just mean to choose a soundfont instrument for the track, yes? Or is there another way to set a soundfont for the track?

My tracks come up with "Stereo Grand" by default. Shouldn't that work as a Soundfont? Do I need to make another setting?

Yes, I meant choosing a soundfont instrument.
"Stereo Grand" is fine. There is another piano soundfont included, RCPiano that sounds better than "Stereo Grand". You dont have to make any other settings.

Yes, seems to work now. And yes, RCPiano is better (Stereo Grand is loud and annoying)....why not make RCPiano the default when a track is created??

I have no idea where that menu choice is, to set the default font. I don't see it anywhere in Settings.

Let me know.
