Help please - faulty app(s) or faulty user?
I've spent/wasted ;-) half a day today trying to get a pre-programmed chord progression to play in to multiple synths. I've tried a few different ways but each has failed - I suspect for different reasons.
Midi source: Suggester
Audiobus 3: various synths in various combinations inc Sunrizer, Sampletank, Thor
AUM: each of the synths and a master bus
The problem with this approach seemed to be that any time I switched to AUM mixer, Suggester goofed resulting in some synths stopping audio and others droning a note on, until going back to suggester and re-starting the progression.
This also happened the same when I took AUM out of the setup - going to the mixer tab in Audiobus had the same effect.
SO I assumed Suggester wasn't playing nicely and tried another approach.
Midi source: ChordPolyPad (outside of Audiobus)
Audiobus 3: (as before)
I could get CPP triggering the synths if I touched the pads manually.
Added AUM and used its keyboard (C4 onward) manually to trigger the pads in CPP. All good.
All I needed now was a way to have a midi file play to trigger CPP progression leaving me free to play guitar.
Midi Source: Cubasis 2.1 (in Audiobus 3) - playing notes from C4 with midi thru set to Audiobus MIDI
Audiobus 3 midi effect : ChordPolyPad
Audiobus 3 midi outputs: the synths again
This doesn't work. Cubasis midi does not trigger CPP pads when set up this way. I can play the CPP pads manually, and if I remove CPP from the midi effect slot the raw C4-and-onward notes come through and trigger the synths. But putting CPP back in there results in silence.
Help me Obi-Forum, you're my only hope!
