contact the developer and ask. in general midi devices have changed very little since the late 80s. All are interchangeable. The big question is does that midi device have a device driver for the operating system you have. so do your homework - contact the developer; contact the device manufacturer (or just read the device manufacturer's manual which is ...

Screenshots are from Nuendo 4, the coeval of Cubase 5. So it should be similar. In the "VST Connections" menu add two stereo busses for each stereo-out of your USB sound card. I called them "Main" and "Headphones". On channel settings pick "Main" for Symphony and Guitar channel outs. If your click is the default Cubase click, in the "VST Connections" ...

Ableton Live is a program commonly used for live shows, as the name suggests, because you can set up several samples and launch them in various ways, like using the MIDI output from your keyboard. It automatically syncs the tempo of the new samples you launch.

You need to go into the EXS24 instrument that you've created and "export" the instrument and samples and then reload from the exported EXS24 instrument. The detailed steps follow, but first and overview. You are going to Export your EXS24 Instrument and save it somewhere (anywhere). Remove the plugin from the track. Reload it from your export. Now here ...

Yes, Fruity Loops (now called FL Studio) will create chords, but will not create progressions for you. To create pop music you must understand something about harmony, form, contrast, and other principles of music composition.

In the inspector (above the channel strip of the focused track) you'll see a section with the name of the track. Expand it (if it isn't already) and you'll see a MIDI channel section. There you can select a specific channel for the track to listen to, instead of the default "all". The rest will depend in your devices (keyboards, surface controls, etc). ...

There is an interactive 19 TET keyboard on our website: academo.org/demos/19-tet-keyboard It uses the Web Audio API, meaning you can play it online with your computer keyboard or by clicking on the notes (as long as your browser supports Web Audio - currently Chrome, Safari and Firefox).

The easiest solution seems to be to use the repeat tool to remove the endings, then to add the measure, then to use the repeat tool to add the endings as you want them. These are the steps (using the repeat tool): Highlight both the first and second endings Right click -> Delete, to remove your endings completely. Do whatever you need to do (i.e. add your ...

I've looked through the Finale 2014 included plugins and I don't see anything that does what you want. If it's something you need to do 100's or 1000's of times then it might be worth exploring FinaleScript to try and automate the process. Otherwise your best bet is to learn the speedy entry tool and modify the melody by hand.

Reaper is an awesome tool and can do A LOT, so it's a bit overwhelming but in its basic use, it's quite simple, once you know what you're doing. You can find a lot of tutorials and resources on the Internet about this software (because it is inexpensive, a lot of non-professional use it). I like a lot the website Tutorials For Reaper, you can start with ...

I don't have time for a full-blown answer tonight, but as a user of Reaper myself, I can say that it is certainly capable of doing what you want, though I agree that it can be a tad overwhelming at first. Even after years of use, I certainly don't understand all of its features -- just the ones that I've come to use regularly. I encourage you to stick with ...

When you export your movie, immediately before Logic X bounces your audio, you are presented with a dialog window that looks like this: This window lists all of the audio tracks that are found in the original movie that you are editing. (Usually, this will be one stereo track.) Any tracks that are selected when you click "OK" on this window will be ...

As far as I'm aware, there is no specific plugin that will transcribe what you sing in to it, I think that's probably too complex a task. You can however run an Autotune plugin that has a display of the note you are singing and write down the notes yourself, or pull up a piano vst and just find the notes you're singing.

There are so called "time tracking" programs mostly used by people who work at home, various jobs. They allow to count the spent working time, starting and stopping the timer manually, and provide logs on how much have been spent. More advanced versions allow to count multiple jobs, so you could also measure time spent for playing known and learning new, ...

I use Level Me Up!, because I'm a gamer and I love the whole idea of earning "experience points" in order to "level up" my skills. Basically, you create a "character" (you), add "skills" (the things you want to practice, IE "guitar") to your "character sheet", and then log the time you spend practicing. The app scales the total accumulated time against the ...

I have used the Music Journal app for logging practice time on my iPad. It has some really nice features but also some shortcomings. On the plus side, it will record both time played and BPM goals, with different kinds of practice color coded. On the minus side, it only organizes practice by “songs” with no way of tagging or filtering practice by type. I ...

I'm sure if you looked you would find something, especially if you looked in the fitness world as people often log their workouts and achievements. However if you are a bit of a "data geek" I humbly suggest you simply create a spreadsheet in Excel/LibreOffice or online in GoogleDocs, whatever fits your lifestyle and computer habits. This would work well and ...

Any VST drums that you buy will work with DM10 module. It's all a matter of your budget I think, especially if you don't plan to do it professionally. My personal favourite is EZDrummer 2 which is ultra-easy, has great sounds and it's one of the cheapest VST drums on the market. It also has a compability mode for Alesis drum modules which will help you ...

Some of it appears to be a variation of shape notes (5,8,9,10,11,12), others seem based on larger note values that are quite rare in modern music and clef like (6,14). Some (mainly the Xs and triangles) seem based on percussion notation (2,7,8) and some just seem to be decorations (1,3,4,13). As these notes heads come from different places and are used in ...

Here are some of example of where alternate note heads are useful. There are probably more that I can't think of, or am unaware of. The "ladder" shape is one form of the double-whole note (aka breve). As you might expect, it has twice the duration of a regular whole note. Notation for percussion instruments oftens use various shapes to indicate different ...

Basically, anything you can do, Finale can do. If you understand music theory and composition well enough to reduce and simplify a melody yourself, then you can use Finale to help make that happen. There is no known "auto-simplify" plugin for Finale. Finale has a score reduction plugin that is laughable, but apart from that, the other plugins are ...

If you want to exchange scores with friends who use different score-editing programs, so that they can continue working on it, your only real choice is to exchange MusicXML files. But the only way you'll send them EXACTLY what you design is if you both use the same program and use its native file format. If they don't need to continue editing the score, ...

If you know what you want the score to look like, the score-writing programs already mentioned will help you do the job. If the MIDI is configured as one string=one channel and you want guitar tab rather than staff notation, you might even get some way towards automatic conversion!
