I'm wondering if Mixcraft 6 can handle routing midi output as input to an audio track, i.e. use a vocoder. Specifically I'm looking at this product: http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/sep10/a ... s-0910.htm
Under "Viva la Vocoder", it says:
-Do not insert Pentagon into a track using the Insert / Soft Synth command, as we’ll be using it as a processor. Instead, right-click in an audio track effects bin and go to Soft Synths / Pentagon I. We’ll call this the audio/instrument track, as it has characteristics of both.
-Next, create a MIDI track to drive the audio/instrument track and assign its MIDI output to the Pentagon I.
-Assign the audio/instrument track input to your mic’s audio input source (ie. from your audio interface) and set the audio/instrument track Input Echo to On.
-Call up the Pentagon patch you want to use as the vocoder carrier, then click on the Pentagon I logo and go to Voice Modulator / On.
-If you want a more ‘voice-like’ effect, click on the Pentagon I logo and go to Formant Filter / On.
Speak into the mic, play your keyboard, and voilà, instant vocoder.
