RAW MIDI vs Normal MIDI: Examples, Guide and Jam ( AutoTonic )
In this video I am going to take a look into "Raw MIDI" (hardware action signals), respectively "Result MIDI" (final transposition signals) and how we can use them in combination with AutoTonic and a DAW (I am using 'Logic Pro' here, but the approach is universal).
Please consider the composition created live/during this video to be 'no masterpiece' –- these were just some random triggerings to represent a theoretical result of a much more creative process/dedicated playing.
OVERALL INSTRUCTIONS (MAY VARY FOR THE VARIOUS DAW's):
I.) AutoTonic Settings Checklist:
*FILTER incoming signals (Ch.#1 only).
*Output on DIFFERENT Channel (CH.#2).
*Set EXTERNAL MIDI INPUT PORT in I/O Panel.
II.) DAW Settings Checklist.
*Create 2 x MIDI-compatible tracks (1 x Software Instrument, 1 x External MIDI Track).
*both tracks must be rec-enabled (ready) for recording.
*make sure that signals will be split through MIDI channel separation (in 'Logic Pro' setting "Auto demix by channel if multitrack recording").
*set "Software instrument" to CH.#2 and "External MIDI Track" to CH.#1.
... and start recording to *both tracks* while actively monitoring only the "Software Instrument Track"
If you're confused about the routings I use, this is how they basically look currently:
*AutoTonic DAW Bridge 1= Port for preparing DAW signals, potential Applescript-MIDI Configurations applied here (eg, "RawMIDI ON, AutoTonic OFF", "AutoTonic ON, RawMIDI OFF" or "AutoTonic AND RawMIDI ON" etc, ).
