[SOLVED] In need of MIDI and VST assistance!!

    First and foremost.. I go by the name, Caj. Would just like to introduce myself since this is my first post... I'd like to thank you all in advance for sharing your knowledge with me.

    Anyhow.. I need some help...


    I just got a midi keyboard... It's a Korg Triton ProX it's connected to my PC with a USB Midi interface (Edirol UM-1ex)... everything is fine in that department... I also have ASIO4all v2 to get rid of the Midi delay.... so this is all functioning properly... all fine and dandy here.

    Here's the problems:

    Now... I've installed Hypersonic VST for FL Studio 8.

    Now when I try to record a midi sequence (Let's say a synth for example)... I would press down a key... and it would prolong my key stroke. So like.. when I've already let go of the key... it still records me as still holding down the key.

    To further explain, as I record it.. output sounds normal... however, when I replay what I've recorded... its a prolonged keystroke and the note plays until I play another note. It's f*cking annoying...

    1) WHY DOES IT PROLONG LIKE THAT? I ONLY WANT IT TO PLAY AS LONG AS I'VE HELD THE KEY DOWN FOR, LIKE IT *SHOULD*!?? HOW DO I FIX THIS?

    and on TOP of this... my SECOND problem... is that when i play a chord... only ONE key of that chord is recorded... it *SOUNDS* like FL is recording a whole chord... but when I replay it... FL is only recording ONE key of a whole chord... I don't get it =( My sh*t sounds like garbage because of it.

    2) HOW DO I FIX THIS!? I WANT TO BE ABLE TO PLAY FULL CHORDS... NOT SINGLE KEY'd Nonsense :( lol

    Your help is greatly appreciated all, as you can tell.. Im quite irate because of this :) ... if you don't understand my problem, please reply, i'd be more than willing to describe my problem more.

    Thanks in advance!

    Nice language. :roll:

    Based on that I'm going to assume you tried it with another midi recording application and it works great.

    Sounds like the record mode in FL Stuido is set wrong.
    The first problem you are experiance can be more accurately describes as the "midi note off event is not being recorded"
    The second problem may be that the synth is monophonic. Try the same with FPC. I know that is polyphonic.

    Right click on the record button and make sure "score" is checked

    also on the recording panel make sure Step Recording is off.

    In the Settings->Midi-Devices dialog make sure the correct controller is enabled, auto accept is on, and support hold and sostenuto is off, and record to step sequencer is off. The controller type should be generic.

    You are a genius. I'm quite the simpleton for not trying this earlier.

    Thank you very much guys. Much appreciated!!

    Issue with monitoring detected:

    "it *SOUNDS* like FL is recording a whole chord... but when I replay it... FL is only recording ONE key of a whole chord..."

    You're monitoring the output from the keyboard directly via headphones or something, correct?
    This might not be ideal in some situations such as playing keyboard parts over other tracks. Unless you have something else on the go, in which case I'll go back to what I was doing.

    Although the problem has been solved... thanks for the further advice. I'm not quite monitoring the keyboard output... but monitoring the midi activity and the VST output... not quite sure if that's what you meant initially... but I'd have to hear SOMETHING when I play right? =P And during the problem I had... the real time output was correct... but playback was not.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers!
