Is it possible to play the Thesys synth autonomously via MIDI?

I like to drag and drop midi files from Thesys into my DAW, but when I play the track, Thesys won't replicate what it was doing. It interprets the midi data as pattern control, not as midi notes or CC's for the synth. I would like to be able to tweak/hand edit the generated MIDI and have the same sound (with the same control change assignments etc) simply play it. Can it be done?

Hi ladybugs,

ok, please consider Thesys as MIDI generating unit. Which means the MIDI part that is created by Thesys is meant to use with other instruments either by routing it's MIDI out channel to the destination synth or using the MIDI drag and drop feature on a track with your target synth.
The MIDI that is send to Thesys will be used to trigger the patterns, the pitch keys and the action section of Thesys only.
So if you want to get access of the sound of its internal synth you should do this the same way as you would do with any other instruments in your DAW. The best way is to record as MIDI and then bounce to audio.

Best,
Nadine

Hello Nadine, thanks for your reply. I am a bit surprised Sugar Bytes didn't think of such a use case. It should be fairly easy to select one specific MIDI channel for "synth playing only". The issue I have, obviously, is with editing the MIDI info to fit a track perfectly. Audio just won't cut it.
