Re: Podium: How to get B-Step Sequencer running

Keep in mind that you will need to render/bounce internally any synths/drums you trigger with B-Step using the loopbe1 midi driver.

This is possible because I have done it, but it won't export your sounds externally to file.

So please consider this when using B-Step in Podium.

Re: Podium won't render output of synths triggered by B-Step

I figured out how to render and bounce the files internally within podium so technically this is possbile.

I couldn't begin to explain how you do it, but yes, it is doable. Still won't render out to file though.

Podium won't render output of synths triggered by B-Step

Podum won't export the audio that B-Step triggers if you use the loopbe1 midi drivers. This seems to be a problem with the loopbe1 midi drivers which you need to use to get B-Step working in Podium. There may be another way to set things up but I couldn't figure it out. I also tried to record the au...
