MIDI Playback problem in Ableton 8

I was working on a template for recording midi and audio into Ableton 8 and 9, when I noticed that there was a problem with the MIDI playback in 8. There are hanging notes for some reason. It's really annoying. This problem does not happen in Ableton 9. The timing in 9 is absolutely rock solid. I ha...

Re: Ableton not rendering the output of B-Step

The latest build with the colour editor, still does not render the wave file out when exported - it is still total silence.

Skin Colour Editor - Ideas

THE COLOUR THEME EDITOR WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE NEXT VERSION OF B-STEP The new skin editor is pretty awesome if you like to work with your own colour schemes, either because you don't like the original or to fashion B-Step out in a way that makes sense to you with how you work. This is just my very...

REAPER

I've put together a quick template of REAPER that runs B-Step and a synth 1. Not sure if it is the best possible example of routing, but it seems to work pretty good and took me the longest time to figure out. There are four or five channels on B-Step as usual (I'm just using roughly the same templa...

Energy XT2

I've put together a few song templates for Energy XT2. I've included a readme file so you can see that for more indepth explanation. Needless to say, they work in the latest version (and older) of XT2. One is the main program with B-Step, the other is B-Step being used in the VST or VSTi version of ...

Re: Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

Hi Monoman, the MIDI clock thing is a active sensing message. E.g Ableton Live stopped B-Step after a short time and we use the old MIDI sensing standard to avoid this. But it's not a big deal to disable it for Studio One. (will be added in the next update). 3. is solved? 2.? Hi. 1. Ok that makes s...

Re: PresetPack by AbstractCats (download)

Thanks for this.

I will be uploading some of my best presets when I get a few more of them. I've got about a dozen good ones at the moment, but I'm hoping to really get into creating a lot more once I get used to using B-Step.

Re: Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

Ok, sorry for the ramble. Lot to take in, I know. Just take all the above stuff as a bit of feedback. For some reason, B-Step is playing really solidly now. All the timing issues I had have gone for the moment. I can't think of what I have changed, apart from just installing a new multi-client ASIO ...

Re: Ableton not rendering the output of B-Step

Hi Monoman, If you like I can send you a test version to check if it fixes the problem with your setup. Yeah. That would be great. I'll give it a go. I assume you have my email, you can send it there. If not, PM me. I'm having so much fun with this tool. It's really fast to work with. Just so much ...

Re: Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

As for the gaps when rendering out files, according to Reaper, B-Step has 0 latency so it can't be that. Dune has 0 latency as well, so that isn't it either. I imagine it is some kind of buffering for the sync to start. No idea. However. There is a very easy way around this problem. Record the midi ...

Re: Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

Problem 1 (the errant midi clock thing) is manageable. If it start playing the notes, then you just have to press play and stop and this usually stops it from sounding. Obviously it shouldn't be leaking through. I've tried to find some settings I can change in S1 coz you can actually turn midi clock...

Re: Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

As for problem no.1, it seems the issue is B-Step sending its sync signal via channel 1 (some kind of midi clock thing). If I change the input from B-Step the 'pulsing' stops. You can see it flashing on via the midi on/off indicator. Some times it flashes when B-Step is stopped and there is no sound...

Studio One playback of B-Step has some problems

1. Midi channel one 'pulsing' with input data even when sequencer stopped. In the template that I have included, you can see that when B-Step has all its channels muted on the B-Step interface itself, and there is no midi theoretically being sent to S1, if you look at the track there is a steady 1/8...

Studio One

I've just figured out how to set up B-Step with Studio One v2. The first way is with B-Step controlling a single stereo output synth. In this case I have used DuneCM in my song template but you can replace that with whatever you like. It uses 4 channels from B-Step to play the one instance of the sy...

Re: Ableton not rendering the output of B-Step

Hi Monoman, just to be sure that i understand you right. You only have that problem in record mode started from the file menu? If you hit the record button on the Ableton main interface everything is fine? Tommy Yes, I can arm an audio track and record the audio in inside ableton. I just can't rend...

Ableton not rendering the output of B-Step [SOLVED]

EDIT: See the attachment below for 'working' renders. Basically use the in host routing and not loopbe1 midi driver. Then what you hear is what you will get in audio export. The only difference is you will not be able to mute individual midi channels 1-4 if you have that set up, as you can with the ...

Recording the MIDI output of B-Step into FL Studio

Found a good video explaining something similar. Wg1H0pW332I I've included a FLStudio 11 song template using the same principles to record the MIDI output of B-Step into the piano roll of FLS, via another plugin as it is not possible to do this (I don't think) in FLS at the moment. You need to dl th...

Here is a song template for FLStudio 11. Two actually. One is for setting it up in the usual way with the VSTi set to midi input port 1. I've used Sytrus here which I have bought. If you haven't bought Sytrus, it won't work. The reason being, the internal native FLStudio instruments do not respond t...

Re: FL Studio: how to get b-step sequencer running.

I've tried it in Patcher and got it working with one channel, but I just don't see how this can independently control 4 synths. It only has one midi output! I'm really struggling with the logic behind this. I checked it in EnergyXt and the same - only one 'physical' midi output. The midi channel set...

Hi. I don't seem to be able to get B-Step working in FLStudio 11, with it being able to independently control 4 separate midi channels. It only sends on channel 1 and nothing else. I've played about with it for about six hours now and tried every available option I can find. I can get it to control ...
