Midi piano recording

Postby Music Gallery » Thu Apr 18, 2013 2:35 pm

I can not record midi track, Mixcraft 6 does not respond my midi piano.

I am experienced in Mixcraft 6, all settings are correct. Piano is shown in Mixcraft who also detects USB, Windows 7 too.
I've tried several pianos, have switched cables, uninstalled Mixcraft completely and installed again. Everything works in other aplikations but not in Mixcraft, I'm frustrated.

Please someone?

Make sure that you do not have other MIDI applications open when you try to use Mixcraft. Do you have Mixcraft 6.1 build 213? Which virtual instrument do you have selected? Does Musical Typing work normally right now?

I recently had a similar issue with IK Multimedia Philharmonik VST... I would put an instance of it into a virtual instrument track and only one of the 16 instruments played... Turns out my MIDI keyboard outputs on MIDI channel 1 and only one of the instruments had channel 1 as the channel to respond to. As soon as I changed the rest of them to 1, everything worked just fine.
So, maybe the VST you are using is looking for MIDI data on a channel that your controller is not outputting on.

Just a thought

Good Luck

Yes I got the newest version Mixcraft software. And Musical Typing work normally - and make sound.

And it not a single VST but all instruments in general, I think there is a midi device that takes control, just do not know how to find it?

Anyone please? Mixcraft support team please??????????
