No Drums - MIDI

Postby NgLucas » Thu Jan 03, 2013 10:57 pm

Hello everyone,

I need some help, i'm new to the software and not any expert at the moment. I downloaded a MIDI, and listened to it outside MixCraft with a music player. There was a lot of instruments, like the drums. But when i opened this song on MixCraft, there was no drums, however, the other instruments still there. I think there is a simple solution, but i'm certainly too new to the software. I tried to open few MIDIs before with MixCraft, and i worked just fine.

Does anybody know what to do? Thanks for reading.

Hi,

Try opening the MIDI file by clicking on Mixcraft's file menu and selecting Open Project.

If you open the file that way, do you get the drums?

Hello,

yes, i always open MIDIs like that, so i don't need to change the project Tempo.
The Software i use to listen to MIDIs is the Nero ShowTime, and the drums are there.

But in MixCraft, they just disappear for some reason. This only happened with this particular MIDI.

Hi,

Are you using Mixcraft 6.1 build 204?

After you use open project to load the MIDI file, are there multiple tracks for different virtual instruments? If so, can you figure out if the notes for the drums are there? What virtual instrument is selected for those tracks?

Actually, i'm using the 6 build 201. I will update to see if it's the issue.

No, there aren't any drum tracks. That's why i found that really strange, do you want me to send you the website i downloaded it so you can test it? I would really appreciate it!

Thanks for your time and your help Greg,
