For Example, recording a keyboard’s audio as well as midi at the same time. Then I want to comp the takes. How to edit both audio and midi simultaneously and keep the edits in sync?
Add both tracks and Record Enable at both tracks, please.
Yes, but how to EDIT the recordings simultaneously (Comp lanes, move sections around etc) So that after editing, the the midi version and the audio version are still in sync
You could put them to a Folder and enable Group Editing. Then you can do most of the stuff on the Group level.
But I don’t see a reason for this. What is your use case, please? Why you don’t work with MIDI and once all the edits are done, you record audio?
Use case: Live drummer with acoustic triggers
Folder method doesn’t work.
What do you need the MIDI for then, please?
If Group Editing in a Folder does not work for you, then you are screwed. You can only work on the events/parts in the project. When you start to change midi notes the audio won’t follow and vice versa. As far as I know no DAW can do that.
I’m assuming the drum kit is equipped with trigger mics that in the end generate a MIDI signal. This can be used to trigger samples for either complete drum replacement or layering.
If the drums are individually mic’ed, I don’t see a need for trigger mics as the audio can easily be used as triggers. But maybe I’m missing something.
These are exactly my thoughts.
The Roland acoustic drum triggers (physically attached to acoustic drum) capture way more nuanced midi than any of the software triggers can derive from recorded audio.
