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:

Hardware→AutoTonic INST Bridge 1→AutoTonic INST Bridge 2→AutoTonic Bridge 1→AutoTonic→AutoTonic MIDI Bridge 2→DAW Bridge 2→DAW

 

  • Hardware=MIDI Gear like my Doepfer SK2000, CME Xkey, Fatar Sustain Pedal, etc,
  • AutoTonic INST Bridge 1 = For summing all devices into one Global MIDI Port
  • AutoTonic INST Bridge 2 = For applying Global Channel# Changes or Pitch corrections BEFORE signals hit the DAW etc,
  • AutoTonic Bridge 1 = For summing all final (note-generating) device signals into one place and prepare them for AutoTonic's input
  • AutoTonic Bridge 2 = AutoTonic's transposed signals (destructive result)
  • 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,)
