more specifics on previous post & with track labels (ableton live setup).
is this setup accurate for ableton live? this is a screenshot with the synth track record armed and receiving midi from the midi track with midi chords on it (as in original "Insert Piz Here" setup with ableton live post, referenced in previous comment). The thing is, with the midichords gui window open, and the synth track record armed (as in screenshot), the midichords gui doesnt follow along with my pressing keys on my oxygen keyboard.
however, when i record arm the midi track with midichords on it (just to directly test the plugin receiving my keyboard midi data) (see screenshot below), the midi chords gui follows right along as i press the keyboard keys (oxygen keyboard)
possibly relavent further info: at first after not getting audio, i came across an article talking about the host application needing to recognize as VST effect rather than VST instrument, so i renamed file to Midi Chords FX, and ableton live recognizes as VST effect. Before that it was recognized as VST instrument.
are there further adjustments (aka, channel specific adjustments, etc) i need to make in midi chords gui (specify midi channels, routing, anything?) I feel like i'm overlooking something simple here, yet it seems i've tried everything i can think of.
could this does this have to do with the "channel midi-input" box being grayed out saying "Track Out" (box under the "Midi From" box on the VSTi synth track?)
I can't figure out why that's grayed out. The live manual says that is the specific "midi channel" of the "input type" box above (and available when relavent), yet can't figure out why its grayed out on my setup and not insert piz here's original Live Setup post (ref previous comment.)
I really really really want to get'insert piz here's midi chord plugin going'. Any guidance is much appreciated.
