I am excited to see improvements are on the way.
Hopefully, you can add a filter to your software, that allows users to dial in a particular instrument or ensemble, to prevent ghost notes, latency, quantizing, and other issues that plague most of us.
Still, after 2 plus years, no AAX functionality. Even with virtual midi output, MG2 does not work in Pro Tools Ultimate.
Could you please include: in depth video tutorials on DAW and live setups, software friendly playing styles, etc., so users can get the best results from your products?
Dear MG2 Staff:
Regarding the MG2 Demo videos:
There are hundreds of fake virtuoso videos on Youtube, that are recorded, aligned, edited, and played back to appear like they were being played in real time.
After years of struggling to play a single song with MG2, and not be plagued with ghost notes, tracking and quantizing issues, and messed up midi recordings; it would be appreciated if your people showing demos could give us a step-by-step rundown of EXACTLY what gear they are using, what DAW or live software, and how they are achieving near perfection, using MG2.
I have no idea what the guy wearing headphones on his MG2 demo is using to play lightening fast, with absolutely zero latency, ghost notes, or other issues the rest of us are plagued with, so I am calling bullshit on some of these demos.
Sure, the guys playing sax, and other single note instruments are real. It is clear, they are actually playing.
However, I could be wrong, but the guy playing Transylvania orchestra-esque, super fast finger style, does not appear real to me. He is also playing along to a track.
I have tried to mimic his playing style and song, with disastrous results. MG2 fell off a cliff, which leaves me to question the authenticity of this particular demo on your website.
Hell, I just barely touch multiple strings, and MG2 goes nuts with ghost notes. I have to mute every note and chord. This guy is playing open finger style, and everything is Chrystal clear???
If it is real, I apologize for not being convinced.
Could you please show a follow up video of this guy setting up his gear, and showing us all exactly what gear he is using, his computer and DAW setup, how he is playing his finger style, and what he does to achieve this perfect MG2 example!
I am sure we all would be thrilled to see how this is done!
Perhaps MG2 responds better in live situations, than in DAW recordings?
I have tried multiple guitars, computers, interfaces, and DAWs, and absolutely nothing allows me to achieve what was done in this virtuoso demo.
As much as I want MG2 to be a primary method of recording midi, it is still in the novelty category, until the bugs are worked out.
No doubt, it is a great concept, and I enjoy using it. I just would like to see more user control, better ghost note filters, and more functionality, including AAX compatibility.
