I did not know Mixcraft is not compatible with MG2 as a plugin, that I finally realized in the DAW list page, when I tried to record MG2 (trial version) generated MIDI signal in Mixcraft’s virtual instrument track.
I dont want to learn another DAW. So I came up a workaround. I use two PCs, PC A and PC B. PC A runs MG2 and Steinberg UR242 for guitar input and MIDI output on UR242’s 5-pin MIDI output port. PC B runs Mixcraft and Stenberg UR44 to receive MIDI data from UR242 at the UR44 5-pin MIDI input port.
It works very well in terms of data flow. No observable latency in PC B’s Mixcraft monitor headphone on UR44, and I could record MIDI on the fly.
BUT BUT UR44 often receives INCORRECT MIDI data, for example different velocity (volume), extra sound, loss of sound. I suspect two possibilities:
(1) MG2’s MIDI output is not qualified. Please JAM origin validate your MIDI output.
(2) My cheap 5-pin MIDI cable induces noise. I have ordered a brand cable and will do one more trial. If it still have same problem, should I use MIDI to USB adapter like Yamaha UX-16? I dont know.
