Access Virus MIDI Help


FoolsGold

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

Really simple request, yet been pulling my hair out. All i want to achieve is to be able to Use my Virus TI externally with Logic X, and been able to route MIDI in and out (to me what this means is i can record midi into logic, and hear what I'm playing, then after quantising, loop recorded midi pattern in DAW, and tweak the sound on my Virus externally).

 

For the life of me i can figure it out.

 

My flow diagram is as follows

 

Virus TI without USB plugged in (in sequencer mode). MIDI Out Cable is going into the MIDI In cable on the breakout cable of my Fireface UCX, and MIDI In Cable going into Midi Out Part of Fireface Break out cable.

 

In Total Mix (Fireface Software) Midi Input port is set to Fireface UCX Port 1, and Midi Out port set to Fireface UCX Port 2. See attached Picture 1.

 

Then when i open logic and select "External Midi" Instrument, i can play my keyboard and hear sound as well as see midi is coming into logic via the green bar in the arrange window, as well as the transport bar up the top. (Im also getting the "note symbol" on the Virus screen which means midi is being transferred.

 

I can then record in Midi pattern, swell as hear the virus patch being played.

 

When i try and play this midi pattern back, the green bar lights up showing midi is being played, and the note symbol on the virus screen once again appears showing midi is being received. Yet no sound is being made.

 

What the hell am i doing wrong?

 

Please help

In Total Mix (Fireface Software) Midi Input port is set to Fireface UCX Port 1, and Midi Out port set to Fireface UCX Port 2. See attached Picture 1.

 

Start by setting those to "None". You don't need to set those unless you're looking to control Total Mix with MIDI.

 

Then when i open logic and select "External Midi" Instrument, i can play my keyboard and hear sound

 

That's an external MIDI track in your picture. Good. What keyboard are you using to trigger the Virus? Its own keyboard or something else?

 

Are you planning to get the Virus' audio into Logic too? You'll need an audio channel for that (an Aux or a regular audio channel).

its the Access Virus TI so has inbuilt keyboard

 

In that ase make sure you turn Local Control OFF on the Virus. Check the manual for details.

 

Yeah will eventually have audio channel but at the moment virus sound is just doping audio out of virus into sound card then out speakers

 

Cool. Good plan to get the MIDI working and then move on to audio.
