Well, probably a newby thing:
Let´s say I use Halion 4 multitimbral, have slot 1 getting its data from midi track 1 and routed to output 1 (master);
have slot 2 getting its data from midi track 2, routed to output 2, etc.
Now in the mixconsole, I´ve got both a midi fader and an audio fader for each slot. The midi fader is turned down all the way by default, yet I get a read out and the signal is going to the audio fader and the volume ajustable there.
Couple of questions:
- As soon as I touch the midi fader, I influence the volume. When I turn it back down completely, I don´t get back to the default state where the signal was coming through, the channel is silent; no more read out. Is the midi fader a fader usually left untouched? Best to hide those in the Mixconsole to avoid confusion and just use the audio fader?
- When the midi fader is turned up 100% the midi notes on the track are not hitting volume 127. There still is dynamic range. Why is that? What´s the use then: if I want things louder, I can turn the audio fader up?
- I forgot… Will post it when I remember.
I hope someone can explain this.
