View Full Version : Importing midi
05-19-2007, 11:38 AM
I'm a complete noob at FL, but when I try to import a midi song, it does so but when I click play I dont hear anything. Even if I open up one instrument in the piano roll and try to plain certain notes, I cannot hear anything. Any ideas as to why this may be ?

Those are midi out channels. You can send them to another channel that contains an instrument in FL or to an external device. What most people do is just throw and instrument over the midi track.

For example lets say you import the whole midi.
There will be no sound at all when you press play.
Click up the settings box for the midichannel and you will notice that it says "Port:0" Default = 0.
Go into your mixer and open up the "Insert effect" list.
Now choose the Fruity LSD
Now you STILL won't have any sound, but look at the top of the LSD player in the right corner, it should say "1" or "01".
Change that to "0" and press play now.
Voila, you have a midi file with sounds you can actually hear.
You could also do as stated above slam another synthesizer channel on the midi track and have it working just fine.
IF you don't know which channel is what and don't want to import the whole midi I'd definetly advice you to get the wonderfull Midi player from Vanbasco. It's free and is just awesome. You can also see which channels are what.
