Having some issues tracking properly on piano. So I want to insert a “better” compressor and gate plugin in front of MG, that gives me more fine-tuned control over the dynamics. I know turning the Gate counter clockwise all the way will turn it off, but what are the settings in “Midi Velocity” that will turn off those functions? 12 o’clock for all 3? I want the signal once inside MG to be as transparent as possible and do all my dynamics processing in front of it. Anything else I should do to be transparent as possible? I have everything else as NONE… no Direct in amps, no efx, nada. I just want pitch to midi conversion.
While I’m at it, anyone have any tips on controlling dynamics like this? I’m guessing a high quality gate in front of a good multi-band compressor.
I’m using MG as a plugin inside Cantabile Host, and I’m only using MG for the midi conversion, sending it to other soft synths and sample players. Currently I’m just experimenting with Synth 1 Piano, but I get the same ghost note behavior on samplers too… primarily when fretting off… lifting finger from a fret. I’m also having a small issue with Gain sending more velocity than I want, but Gain doesn’t seem to affect it enough. I hvane’t tested my gain issue yet on another vsti but I’m pretty sure I can solve that outside of MG… using midi filters and velocity plugs/efx.
Also, is there a meter to monitor the incoming dry guitar for more exact level setting ? Seems previous MG versions had that. (Yes, my interface is properly set, and it’s “locked down” and I never change it, since that would globally change ALL my gain structure on everything).
