Hi

Does Session keys animator play to host tempo? and does the animator output midi notes?

Thanks.

Yes and yes if Kontakt is set up to send MIDI to outside world (RTFM).

Thanks Dragon

Not sure but I may buy the Y in the sale, pity there is no demo to try first.

Slight correction on the Animator outputting MIDI notes. The Send MIDI To The Outside World function does not work as reliable as we would hope. We are in discussion with NI about that. But for the time being, I would rather say "no" to question number two.

Care to explain what's not reliable about it? I'm using that option without any particular issues for quite some time (granted, not with the Animator but with my own scripts...)

It may work with simple arpeggios and such, but complex animator patterns make the output stutter. Anyway, this may be improved in the future.
