Never worked, does not work at all!

As I told you now 3 years ago, imitone never ever worked here.
I run a music studio, everything is in order.

imitone fails to detect the midi device/synth, even when chosen in a list.
Because of that, it was never possible to sing anything into the music software, using the midi device (a synthesizer).

You based the whole thing on a virtual midi driver, but this isnt working. And if i see correct, you didnt write this yourself..

So, when selecting "Access Virus TI" midi synth from the device list, or an old no-name, Roland JV 50 (oldskool midi) - why does the imitone input (my voice), end in nothing, and the synth dont receive any input ?

Im a coder... start there.
Ive given up all hope that this will ever work.. :)    problem seems to be that the driver is virtual.

We use Windows 7 64 bit here.

Re: Never worked, does not work at all!

Hey, sidwave ---

Send me feedback using the in-app button, after configuring imitone to output to the device --- that will give me a heap of technical information that will help in diagnosing the issue.

The VirtualMIDI driver isn't used when sending MIDI to an external device.  Most people don't use hardware outputs in imitone, so it's possible that there's a bug specific to those.  I'll look into that tomorrow.

Re: Never worked, does not work at all!

okay, it was able to control a DX7 vst. but all notes are hanging.. to stop that, a short agressor tone must be sung :)
i set it to imitine midi, and used that as input in studio one. - works, but notes have infinite release..

sorry, mr virus synth has magically removed himself from the computer :) basterds!
so sending info from the report bug inside, will send you data ? ok will do that when i can get the synth reinstalled.. (it discovers the synth, but hangs a forced firm update, access is bad again)

now at least i know it can control a VST :) thats nice!

i will send what the app can send, as soon the synth works again.

my opinion is just, if it was all, and effect VST, to remote other VST or a MIDI - then you are inside everything, and all problems will probably end. if you make imitone a VST!

Re: Never worked, does not work at all!

Hey, sidwave ---

Hanging notes?  I've seen issues like that very occasionally, where other software chokes on the volume of notes generated by imitone.  Avoiding its more baroque modes (sweep, legato, portamento) can be helpful with more finicky instruments.  Let me know if you run into other connectivity issues.

Yeah, an imitone VST would have some big workflow advantages, especially in a more pro-audio type setup.  Now that imitone's tech is solid I'm thinking I'll be doing that port pretty soon.
