Diverses questions and problems of a new user

Post by veah » Sat Feb 01, 2014 4:43 pm

I'm giving Giada 0.8.2 on windows a try today, and after some experiments and a look at the doc I still have some questions.

I can't get Boost working in the sample editor window. All others parameters are fine but this one doesn't affect the played loop.

I just found the answer to my other question, but it took me time ;) The midi input setup dialog of a midi channel doesn't have a cross to close the window, although every dialog I opened for now had one. I found a way by 'Esc'aping while writing this...

If a delete the only vsti of an FX rack while playing some midi notes, a bzzzz sound is heard and won't stop till a new vsti s load

When the number of beats in the main window is set to 32, piano roll can't be edited anymore

I load some vsti that crashed the program, it seems that mutiple outs vsti crash it (shortcircuit, tx16wx, kontakt, reaktor multi [the 2ch version works])

The soft is interesting. I didn't really dig into midi control to see what we can do. I was wondering how much can be controlled in Giada via an external midi software... I hope future developments will be fruitful on this side. And I can't wait for a midi in !

cheers

Hi veah, welcome here and thank you for your feedback.

Confirmed on Windows and Normalize doesn't work as well.

Confirmed, X button is missing on Windows.
If a delete the only vsti of an FX rack while playing some midi notes, a bzzzz sound is heard and won't stop till a new vsti s load
We are working on that, I suggest to wait for version 0.8.3 or greater and try again, it's a matter of internal buffer cleanups
When the number of beats in the main window is set to 32, piano roll can't be edited anymore
Confirmed, piano roll becomes grey and unusable.

Interesting, Giada should be able to deal with VSTs with multiple outputs. We will look into it
The soft is interesting. I didn't really dig into midi control to see what we can do. I was wondering how much can be controlled in Giada via an external midi software... I hope future developments will be fruitful on this side. And I can't wait for a midi in !
Our aim is to make every knob and button assignable via MIDI: feel free to point out any improvement needed :)
