I have trouble importing Playbeat 3 MIDI into Ableton Live 11. I can import it in both session and arrangement view and I can start playing the file but… I cannot hear anything. It works fine with Audio files but not with Midi. I assume there is some configuartion in Ableton that I do not know of.
Thank you for the video but it did not really help because I don’t know what Midi settings I have to use in Playbeat. I want to export Midi files just like Audio files simply by drag and drop but it doesn’t work.
So, in this case are you trying to feed Playbeat midi back to Playbeat?
At the moment this would not be possible as the pattern that is generated takes into account the pitch shifting engine (pitch tab) which generates a range of C-2 to G8 for each of the sequencers, which means there would be no separation between the sequencers as all share the same range.
The MIDI output is there so Playbeat can be used as a MIDI generator to ‘feed’ other drum samplers and modules.
With our upcoming update we will be introducing the option to trigger the pattern(s) from a single keyboard key but until then i would advise to use the Audio Export function.
Audio and MIDI data are two different things, the MIDI coming from Playbeat is there so you can use this MIDI to feed another module, sampler or synth. Which is the instrument that you are trying to use with Playbeat’s MIDI?
