I’m asking this because I just ran into this. While playing back a short midi track of a B3 type voice, as I increased the channel fader of the midi track, I could hear crackles in the audio playback. Is this typical behavior? I was not peaking the track meter by any stretch. Since I needed more volume from the track, I did a track mixdown of the midi voice and imported it into the project as audio. After adding adding some 4db of gain to the wave file and then setting my channel fader to 0db, I was good to go.
I am not that versed in midi use, but it did occur to me that this behavior would make for some very quiet recordings. Well, unless the midi tracks were turned into audio files and then remixed as I just did.
So are you midi users able to create midi tracks that can be mixed down to typical audio track mix levels? Is there another way to add gain to the midi track that I missed perhaps? Or are you doing what I did, doing a mixdown and then adding gain to the resulting audio tracks?
