Thanks!

What do you have selected for your midi sound? The drum window is midi.

Hi Bernier,

Which version of PowerTracks are you using?

Let's go to Options - Preferences - MIDI - MIDI Devices. What's selected as the Output Driver? Is "Re-Route MIDI Playback to default DXi/VSTi Synth" checked? If so, what's selected as the Default DXi/VSTi Synth.

Let's click OK, then select the Audio tab in Preferences.

What do you have selected as your Audio driver type?

Thanks
Kent

Kent,
I don't think the Drums window honors the 'Default VSTi' setting.
I believe it only works through the actual selected default device in MIDI Devices .. the raw windows device like MSWavetableSynth.
I've never been able to have it work using the default VSTi setting.
I think it is one of those 'legacy' plugins that has never been updated.

Hope I'm wrong, but that has been my experience and my recollection of Beta testing questions.
And even then it has a significant delay if I recall.

That's been my my experience, too.

Ripe for an update.

Hi guys,

I think you're right, I can trigger notes on a drum track with the onscreen keyboard, but the Drums window won't do it.

I'll do some more testing and report this tomorrow.

Cheers

I miss JamesChandlerJr <grin>
seems like many of these legacy issues coincide with his departure
PGFX haven't had any love since about the same time
Wonder what he's up to now ..
