Eight Track

Another productive night in the studio.
Last night I slaved to get one MIDI track into FL Studio and for my money the effort was worth it. What I had intended to do was get eight tracks in but that seemed impossible. I eventually left a question about how I would achieve getting all eight tracks in in one go and today I got my answer from the Loop Talk forum.
It seems that I have to have eight channels selected and ready in FL Studio before I press go on the QY100. This I did and as you can see I now have all eight backing tracks in FL Studio ready to be edited and made into a track. There's a lot of work ahead of me. I need to isolate sections within tracks and re-layer and re-order them but once that's done I can embellish to my hearts content.
But that's all for another day.

Same Madness Different Method

My music head is on.
Don't worry I'm still hard at it with the cartooning.
Anyway, I've got this track. It was conceived on Chordbot and a couple of weeks ago I transferred it all manually to my QY100. It's been sitting there doing nothing since then. I re-read a lot of the manual tonight and I came across a nugget of information that will move it on. It seems I can get all the pattern data out of the QY100 on separate MIDI channels so the idea is to run the QY through my X-Session and into FL Studio and record the MIDI data in there. From there I'll assign new sounds and finish the track. Well, that's the plan.
As always I'll let you know how it goes right here.
