I am completely new to MIDI Guitar 2, and currently evaluating whether I should buy it.
I use Cakewalk by Bandlab with a RME Fireface UFX+ and Vienna orchestral samples and software, and guess what…? I want to use my guitar to record the 220 MIDI Vienna instruments tracks I have setup.
The good: First, in one fairly simple Cakewalk project (6 audio guitar tracks and 2 midi tracks for bass and drums), I was able to add a new audio track, plugin my guitar and hear the audio, then add MIDI Guitar 2 as an effect, and hear piano sounds, all good!
The bad: Then in the same session (and later after close/reopen Cakewalk), I switched to another project, much larger (220 MIDI tracks using Vienna orchestral instruments), I did the same thing, added a new audio track, plugged in my guitar, heard the audio, added MIDI Guitar 2, heard only clean guitar tone, no piano. I see the following error in the Host Information panel:
- You are running at a high samplerate. This will cause a CPU overhead and no quality benefits as far as MIDI Guitar is concerned.
I have not touched the samplerate in between the two projects, it’s set at 44.1 KHz with 32 samples latency, normally working just fine. The computer hardware is pretty high end.
Any idea on what could be wrong?
Below is a screenshot showing audio going through on track 221, the MIDI Guitar warning sign, and the Cakewalk driver settings.
