MIDI Help Please

Hello

I have been recording for years but am just now getting into using MIDI. I am using Sonar 6 PE, an M-audio axiom 61, M-audio projectmix interface...I also use reason 4.0

I am having a few problems...first..I really dont know what type of settings I should be using when it comes to input and outputs...do i set it to my control surface, set it to the axiom...? im not sure how to use it...all of my equipment has a manual explaining how to use it, but it never tells you how to use it with another piece of software or hardware.

I also cant figure out how to open a Reason project in to Sonar and have all the tracks separate into sonar. Is this even possible?

Finally, I cant figure out how to change or "assign" keys on the axiom to specific sounds. If i open reason and put o a piano sound or synth, only half the keyboard works...

Sorry for rambling on with questions,...I just cant figure out how to get this stuff to work...

Any help or tips would be appreciated?

thanks

Anthony

Well, I'll keep this simple for now.

Your projectmix i/o is the interface for audio input and output. You will want to assign its input and output for the audio. As for its control surface function's, that is going to be on you. There might be a template on the web at either Cakewalks site or through a thrid part for using the porjectmix control's in Sonar 6.

As for Reason, you can do one of two things.

Either open Reason ReWired into Sonar which will allow it to function as another software synth would and allow you to still work inside of Reason.

Or simply export the audio tracks from Reason one by one and then import them into Sonar one at a time onto their own audio tracks.

On the Axiom, it sounds like you are running the keyboard in split mode which will be one of the presets fropm the factory. You will need to open the manual and read up on turning a more standard full keyboard preset on to use with Reason. In fact it may actually have one already set for Reason.

I use an Axiom 49 as a secondary controller here and simply set up Sonar 8 with the ACT settings and its all good.

I have everything for audio working perfeclty with the Projectmix

As for midi,

When i open reason in the synth rack, will the tracks recorded in reason show up as tracks in sonar or will it pretty much work the same as if I used reason as a standalone? im not really sure what the purpose of the synth rack is.

With the axiom, i set it up to work with reason but only random keys work and the two left faders control the master volumes on whatever instrument i open.

The synth rack is simply to make it easier to access your software synths and ReWire instruments. And yes Reason should work as normal even when its ReWired.

On the Axiom with Reason. Well if you used one of the presets then it may very well be set up to work with specific patches that only use certain keys to trigger sounds. I don't use Reason here so I can't really experiment to find a solution for you.

But I know using controller's in other facilities that run Reason they are just set up normally and if a patch in Reason has all keys active they all work. If it is a patch that only has certain samples on certain keys then that as well works as it should.

It could be a mapping issue as well though. But more then likely it is an issue with how the Axiom is set up with its preset.

I don't think this is possible. When using rewire in sonar to see Reason, all the Reason tracks will come out as a stereo track.

I've never heard of this before. Is it the low notes or high notes on the keyboard? Can you give an example of which synth or instrument (the more specific the better) where you get this problem. What version of reason are you using?
I use Reason, but not with an axiom as a controoler. Noize's diagnosis sounds pretty reasonable, so I would try and see if you can work around the info he gave you first (since he actually has an idea and I'm grasping at straws).

I've gotten a little farther...I figured out that I have to not only make sure the axiom is on the correct preset but, i the axiom has 4 groups...each group has a different purpose when i switch to one group, the keyboard works, another controls the pads and so on. the group that uses the faders and effects doesnt seem to do much, some of the faders and knobs control random parts of reason.

I kind of understand the purpose of the synth rack, however im still a little confused. Will i still be recording in reason? So whatever tracks i record in reason will not convert over to sonar? When i play back my sonar tracks, will the tracks recorded in the synth rack (ex. reason) play along as well?

until now ive been recording i reason as a stand alone and then exporting a wave file and importing it as a track in sonar. the problem with this was that i have to mix the song in pieces which makes it hard. If something in reason needs to be changed i have to remix it in reason and then export/import it all over again.

Im guessing the synth rack will allow me to use both audio and midi together as one project...correct?

right.

they're random now, but you can assign them individually, so if you want a particular knob or fader to control one of the synth controls, you can make it do that. Right click on the control in the synth and then then select one of the assign options. I can't remember exactly what they say, but I'm sure if you experiment you can figure it out.

1) I don't get this question. Record in reason when you want to utilize a reason synth...

2) Whatever you record in reason will come out as a stereo mix in sonar(most likely, that's how it works in Project5 anyways), not individual tracks.

3) They should.

I had it working last night...When i tried again today...nothing.

Heres the problem im running into now.

I have sonar open, Reason is added in the synth rack,

When i have reason open, the axiom is not tranfering data....as soon as i MINIMIZE reason, I can then hear sounds from reason.

Also, when i press the minimize button there is a loud noise (like someone pressed down on a bunch of the keys) and the noise sustains.

I must have something set up wrong.

In reason, should i have the midi in and out set to axiom?

IN Sonar should I have the midi in and out set to Project mix?

sorry for the million dumb questions...this is very frustrating

you should have the midi i/o set to the axiom in sonar and reason.

In sonar, you may have several synths open. You need to tell which synth should be accessing your midi signal (in this case reason).

the minimize effects are weird, and I'm not sure what to say about that.

but if i set sonar in/out to axiom and not the projectmix, then my control surface no longer works

That is why ihave sonar set to projectmix and reason set to the axiom....

OK, just to hlep kind of get you straightened out on the midi i/o thing.

Each midi track is an independent entity as far as Sonar or Reason is concerned. You can have more then one control going to each track. You need to assign all drivers to active in the midi section. Then you simply select the project mix i/o as the main control surface. Now you need to use the ACT section to set it up as the control for only the track controls you wish it to work on.

Then you will be able to assign the Axiom to midi tracks and have all its control's function for the synths you want to use via midi.

The synth rack is not the recording part of Sonar's midi. It is only a control center or centralized section for you to have easy access to your ReWired instrument or regular software synthes.

OK, first of all thank you all for being patient...Just to clearify...I am completely ignorant when it comes to Midi...Most of what you just told me didnt make much sense....

Im going to start from the beginning again.

1. in sonar i have the option of selecting the following midi devices
axiom in 1 and 2
projectmix in

axiom out
projectmix out

there is also one called projectmix external midi...

which ones do i use...

next, in sonar there is an option for control surface and under this there is an option for midi in and out...the projectmix only controls sonar when i set the midi in and out under control surface to projectmix in and out.

Next, when setting up a midi track in Sonar, what do i set the input and output to...normally with audio i would set it to projectmix 1/2 and project mix out...for midi i have a lot more options...axiom inputs, projectmix inputs, midi omni, channel 1-16??????? ahhh to many choices and i have no idea what this all means....

I do not understand what it means or how to assign tracks or assign the axiom to midi tracks.

i read the manual on the axiom and reason and it said to set the axiom input to bus A in reason...did that....then i set up the axiom to be recognized by reason....

im still only getting sound out of reason after i minimize reason....this is all while i have it entered into the synth rack


my hookups are as follows....maybe this has something to do with everything...I have the projectmix going into the computer with a firewire and the axiom going into the computer with usb....no midi cables are being used.


im hopeless....I know

I wonder if the way i have everything connected is part of the problem. I am just running the axiom to the computer with a usb cable. its not going into any type of midi interface. the projectmix does have midi in and out on the back of it. Should i be using that.

id prefer to use the usb if it will still work...since it is also the power source for the axiom.

Mar 15, 2009 07:08 pm

OH OH!!!

There is the first thing I would try. Using the USB as the power source could be causing issues. I don't even power my Axiom 49 with USB. Although It is suggested it is possible I have seen way to many problems occur from doing that. The USB is acting as the connection for the midi interface itself. Which means that no, you don't need to have a midi cable connected for it to work.

But I suggest getting a power supply for it and trying that.

Odds are good you will have to order it direct just as I did. Here is a link to the page.

I'll keep working on this as well. But I'm thinking that no PSU on the Axiom may be having some part in the issue at hand here.

What kind of issues have you seen from using the usb? id like to make sure this is the problem before i the adapter. I am getting sound, i think i may just have everything set up wrong with the internal settings within sonar and reason.

for example, in sonar, under the track properties page there is an option for bank, patch, instrument....i have no idea what all of that is for. should i be using that.....is there book or tutorial that explains all this.

Have you read the Sonar 6 manual at all?

Here is what I suggest. Sit down and read the manual, cover to cover. Doing the tutorials that are in there along with it. That will give you a big boost in knowing what is what and how it all works. The synth rack and everything are in there along with the tutorials.

It will get you a lot farther a lot faster then me trying to sit here and write a blow by blow hook up and click. Because with the control surface/interface you are using and the Axiom you have a lot of control choices and hook up choices there. Reading the manuals of each and learning what each function is and does is going to get you there a lot faster then me or anyone else here taking a month to give you each little detail by going back and forth with a detailed explanation of what each button or function is and does.

You can look for a book called Sonar Power. There has been one written for each version of Sonar out there. And it is the most complete guide I know of. You can also hit up Youtube and Cakewalk as well for video tutorials on everything the software does.

I believe there are even video tutorials out on the Axiom and Project Mix as well.

AS for the problems powering with USB. function drop outs or simply not working. Partial keyboard function's missing. Control function's not working. Miss communication while sending data back and forth as well.

you can run it without it. But you can take this for what it is. The USB buss was never designed to power such a big piece of gear solely and be reliable. It meant for powering small peripherals, not huge controller keyboards. I don't even power my external drives with it. They all use wall warts.

Ive got a wall wart that uses the same current and voltage....Ill give that a try first and see if it changes anything.
ill take another look at the manual again. One of the problems i was having with the manuals is that they never really explain how to use one piece of equipment/hardware with another.

Thanks for your help with this.

Ya, wee what the walwart does. but I think connection wise you are doing good to start with.

It isn't expected that a manual is going to explain connecting and using all possible software or hardware out there. That would be a huge cost to try and do something like that. But they do give a generic overview of how to do certain things. And most are relative to cover a wide expanse of hardware and software.

As far as how you have it hooked up. You have it set up just fine using the USB for the Axiom and Firewire for the P-mix. They both use the USB or firewire as their interface between the PC and unit's themselves.

The reason I stated to do the tutorials is that they really help to understand what the manual is putting out there.

I guess I'm curious if you have tried having the P-mix assigned for the audio control and then actually having the Axiom assigned in the midi track that is controlling either Reason or what have you?

I know I work with several places that still use back to Sonar 6 and they seem to do alright with a couple different controller's working at once. Each is simply assigned to a specific midi track and the drivers don't seem to conflict doing that.

Mar 16, 2009 09:07 pm

ok, so even though i am using a wallwart, I should still hook up the axiom to the pc with the usb. Then i am using two power sources??? Is the wall wart just giving it a little more even power flow, which will probably help level off the signal.

One thing that is confusing me with the usb is that i am not going into any midi interface. im just hooking the keyboard straight to the computer. I used to use one of those midiman interfaces a couple years ago before i had usb capability. The pmix has midi in and out, should i be using that instead of USB?

One other quick question....When you say " assign the pmix for audio control" or " have the axiom assigned to each midi track"....What do you mean by "assigned"

Are you talking about putting those two in as the input and output of each track property.

Would I always use my pmix as the audio output since i am using that as my audio card (playback)????

for example....track input would be >>>axiom channel 1
output would be>>>>pmix 1/2 out?????

OK, first off you have to read the manual and learn that there are two distinctly different track types in Sonar. You have and audio track, and then yo have a midi track.

I have a feeling you are thinking they are all one in the same, and they are not at all.

The audio tracks are just that, audio. They will carry any audio you have recorded from an outside source such as vocals or guitar or what ever. They will also carry the audio portion of any software synth or ReWire synth you have running. Although it will look like multiple outputs in some cases on the audio ro some ReWire and other software synths.

Now, the midi tracks are a completely separate thing. They are data only and will only record and playback midi or system exclusive data which I'm not even going to start on. The midi data will include note on and note off, volume and other data to control either a software synth or your rewire instruments.

You need to choose the Axiom in the midi tracks input section and then in the midi tracks output section select whatever you are going to be sending that tracks note data to such as Reason or what ever. Its really simple if you just run through the tutorials once you will get it.

The audio track that the synth is running on will be of course fed from the midi track assigned to it. For the audio tracks output of course you will simply assign it to the P-mixes outputs.

Hey Noize

I think im starting to get this whole midi thing....maybe just a little bit.

I've pretty much have the synths working and recording, there are just a few things that i still cant figure out. I went through the manuals but they are way too general to help me figure anything out.

first of all, let me know if i am right in saying this....When i record a midi track through a rewire...like reason, i will not see any midi information (notes played) in sonar...correct? all the information will be in reason, but will still play along with the sonar project.

When i use a soft synth, then i should see the recorded info in sonar....right?

ok, second question. How should i set up the inputs and outs for each midi track in sonar? When i open reason into the synth rack, it opens a track folder below. This is a little confusing, is this part of the track above it or completely separate? there are two tracks in this folder, one looks like a sub midi track with reason in it and the other looks like it assigns the output to the audio outs.
im not really sure how each track or folder should be set up. The manual doesnt explain much.

is there a way to assign each midi track from reason to a separate trak in sonar? or do i have to mix everything from reason in reason?

Yes, if you have the midi assigned to Reason it will use Reason and not the midi track assigned for Reason. But you can use that track if you so choose. On the outputs of Reasons audio portion. When you open it up via the synth rack it should give you an option to open or create different tracks and such.

1: simple instrument track

2: midi source track (always open this)

3: synth Track Folder (I use this for keeping it orgainzed when using mulitple outputs)

4: First synth Audio Output (only choose this if you are using a synth you know only has one stereo output)

5: All Synth Audio Outputs Stereo (this is for items like Reason or drum software that can use multiple audio tracks out, you would use it for Reason to get all of its audio outputs functional)

6: All synth audio outputs mono ( only use this if you want each right or left section of a Reason or synth track assigned to completely separate outputs)


I usually choose to display automation on the synth audio track but you can put it on any you choose.

Make sure Recall Assignable Controls is checked as well or you will have controller settings at the start that should be at the end.

And if you follow the above to set up all synth outputs from Reason you will then have all your Reason output tracks set as individual tracks in Sonar.

I set up the options page how you said but nothing changed. Is that because i am supposed to set it up before i start my project.

I already had a track folder set up and midi data recorded.

i went in and added "all synth audio out stereo" and i checked the box "recall assignable controls"

I didnt notice a difference, all the sound from reason is being controlled by one fader in sonar's track folder.

Ya, it won't change unless you delete the first instance of it and start with a new one. It won't modify it after its open. I wish someone would do something like that. But none of them do.

But yes, its supposed to be set up before you start the project, or as you open it for the first time.

I opened a new project and set it up the way you suggested. It ended up opening 65 tracks....does this sound right.

This was before i loaded a project into reason.

Mar 23, 2009 01:24 pm

When i go to mix the project ( add eq, effects, etc.) should i be doing this in Reason or in sonar?

Reason has its own set of eq and effects that i can use.

Do midi instruments need to be eq'd as much as recorded audio tracks? Usually, the songs i record through reason sound a lot crisper and level than if i try to record audio. it sounds to me like midi recordings dont need to be changed and tweeked as much as an audio file.

Mar 23, 2009 09:07 pm

Oh ya, it sounds about right.

I believe Reason will open that many track by default as that is the number of outputs it will supply if needed.

I think you can choose in Reason to lower that count. But you can also delete the extra tracks if you don't need them.

That is one big plus for using track folders. It allows you to close everything such as large output driven ReWire devices with on click and then open them up fully again with one click.

A couple of my sampler programs are like that. Huge number of outputs by default. I don't think I've ever used more the 16 to 24 max.

To mix I would use the tracks in Sonar myself. I never mix in the ReWire app as when it comes time to mixdown it really can dog the PC. If you prefer the
EQ and effects in Reason though by all means use them there, but use Sonars mixer for the rest.

And no, once I get a synth tone or patch were I want it I usually have no need to EQ or anything. Unless I have to cut to make it fit a bit better. But for the most part, nothing needs to be done 9 times out of 10.

I got the tracks to open in the folder but when i open a reason project they dont coordinte with the faders. do i need to change any settings in reason? what inputs and out do i use for each track in sonar?

i definitely have to erase some of the tracks as well, as soon as all 65 open, my cpu usage goes to 40%...my pc tends to dropout around 55-60%

Member

Mar 23, 2009 09:36 pm

the only way i can get sound from any of these tracks is to add Reason Mix L/R to the input. If i try to add Reason Channel 3 or Channel 4 and so on, nothing...

If i add reason mix, then i just get all of reason on one fader

??

When the folder opens with all the tracks, there is one track at the bottom that is midi...im assuming.

All the other tracks have a little keyboard symbol next to the track number. The track at the bottom has a picture of what looks like a midi jack

i figured it out...i had all the reason synths going into the reason mixer and then had the L/R from the mixer out to the 1/2 audio.

I took each synth in reason and routed each to a set of stereo inputs. 3/4, 5/6 and so on.

Then i choose the input in sonar as stereo 3, stereo 5 etc...

Does this sound right?

Is midi supposed to take up this much cpu usage...I have 5 reason tracks going and its up to 30%

Oh ya, its not just midi its all the software synths running at once.

In Sonar 6 I could easily peg my older PC running an overclocked 2.8 gig with 4 gig of ram.

Now with Sonar 8 projects that ran up to for example 80% now run less then 40% usage.

And newer projects I have been starting are running even less with nearly as heavy synth and FX usage.

But ya, depending on the CPU and the amount of Ram as well Reason is a huge resource hog.

Wait....im a little confused with what you just said....Does sonar 8 run better than sonar 6? Or did you upgrade your pc? What made everything run better.

Mine is running at 30% with 5 synths, and 2 audio tracks. I didnt even add in eq, vst's or any effects yet.

Is there a way to bounce the midi tracks?

Can you use fx teleport to run the synths from another pc.

Um, yep that's what I said. I'm getting about a 50% improvement from 7 PE now with 8 PE. I don't know exactly what they did but it was huge on the performance side. But yes, my machine has improved as well since 6 PE. but 7 was a good deal faster then 6 PE as well. But the jump with 8 is huge. It uses resources much better.

5 synthes would not even get me started most days. My track counts have gone as high as 80 or so with a large portion being VSTi's and DXi's.

Which comes to your bounce question. Have you read your manual at all? Look for the Freeze section. Simply right click either the midi or audio track for the synth and choose freeze. Its that easy. Its a fast non destructive bounce to audio. And it is temporary if you want, the track can be un-frozen any time to edit.

Yes, FX Teleport can run VSTi's as well.

Hey Noise....I think ive come a long way so far thanks to your help. The freeze effect works great. I like that you can undo it anytime you want.

Im having another problem with midi. Im not sure how you are familiar with reason, but im trying to use the redrum synth and im not getting the keyboard to send midi data after i midify it a bit...let me explain.

if i simply open redrum and try to use it it sends the midi info, but what i am trying to do is take each individual output from redrum and send it to the audio jacks...just like ive been doing with the other synths in reason. This way i can send each drum to a separate track in sonar.

now i go into the edit mode so that i can assign each pad from the axiom to a different track of redrum. the sounds come out when i hit the pad, but im not getting any midi information to register. as soon as i manually edit the pad to a track, it stops sending midi info. all the pads that i am not using are still sending info.


any idea what i might be doing wrong?

You should be just assigning the pads to the midi note of the drum sound you want to trigger via midi. It shouldn't have anything to do with any tracks at all. The output of each pad will be sent to the specified jack which goes to the audio track you assign it to.

When i said track i just meant one of the columns in redrum where you choose which drum sound you want. each column has its own output.

at the top of each column in redrum there are three buttons M, S and Play. I am assigning the pad to the play button. Maybe that is the problem. The only reason i did that is because when i hit the pad as soon as i open redrum, some of the pads make the play buttons light up, so i thought that is what i was supposed to manually assign each pad to.

as soon as i try to change around the pad and assign them to different play buttons i get sound but no midi info is registered

i have a feeling there's some setting on the axiom that i am not using correctly. I check the axiom presets, but none of them refer to redrum.

Having not used Reason since its first release I'm not really sure on the assigning thing. I don't know that the Axiom would be to blame there as it is only sending data to wherever the software tells it to.

I know you can actually program the pads on the Axiom to send a certain note. So if your inclined you could try that.

But I'm thinking simply setting ReDrums pad option to receive what ever note the Axiom is sending is possible as well.
