Hello,

Has anyone ever used Halion as a VSTi within n-track 6? If so, could you please tell me in which folder the Halion.dll should be located e.g. is it the VSTplugins folder inside the n-track program directory, and how Halion is launched within n-track?

If no one has been able to use Halion, does someone know if n-track has the ability to load .wav samples and assign them to the keyboard in MIDI piano view so that the the various samples can be triggered by a midi controller keyboard?

Thanks

N doesn't have a vsti folder that I can remember.  So you would probably put it in the ntrack 6 folder.
program files, fasoft, ntrack6.  Or maybe in the vst folder inside the ntrack6 folder.

Thanks Levu for taking the time to answer. I have tried to place the Halion related files in all of the following directories:

C:\Program Files\FASoft\n-Track Studio 6
C:\Program Files\FASoft\n-Track Studio 6\Vstplugins
C:\Program Files\FASoft\n-Track Studio 6\Vstplugins\Halion

In the last two directries above, Halion appears as VST instrument that can be selected on a Midi track in n-track: however, once Halion is selected the program crashes without ever displaying the halion screen. I also point out that I currently use Hypersonic as a DXi and have used another Sampler (such as is Halion) with success as a VSTi using either of the last two directories above. This evidence leads me to believe that Halion specifically is not compatible with n-track.

If Halion won't work for you. a simple free sampler is Shortcircuit 1 (multiout) Shortcircuit 2. ntrack doesn't have a sampler of its own.

no offense but why would you consider using a wav to slave a midi inst?   Is that a possibility?  Even if you convert a wav to midi how accurate would it be to the actual notation?
using a wav to slave midi is possible?
or converting to midi would be how accurate?

Sorry to use your thread wber but you brought up a couple curiosities.  
Speaking of curiosities, you weren't created by Disney where ya? :laugh:

They are discussing sample players Levi. This is device, could be software OR hardware that you load with your audio files or "samples" of instruments that you can then map across MIDI notes. Of course the MIDI can be triggered by a keyboard, a MIDI file or by dropping notes on the piano roll. Let's say you have samples someone made of a rare, old piano. You can take the samples they made and map them so you can play that old, rare piano. This is a simplistic explanation but you get the idea.

It's not WAV to MIDI... if anything, it's MIDI controlling WAV (or mp3, OGG, FLAC, AIF etc...)

If I misunderstood your question, just ignore this post... :laugh: Nuttin' to see... move along...

Though, WAV to MIDI is possible too... use it all the time.

Are you using ReaGate Bubba? Or what?

I had a bit of success using ReaGate to replace kick drums. It takes a fair amount of twiddlin' though...

I use a few things... sstillwell/drumtrigger is the bees knees as it also transmits velocity values unlike ReaGate. Throw ReaEQ in front if it (orReaFIR or whatever other filter you want) with a band pass and you are gold. Pay close attention to the retrigger value. I find about 85ms is about right. Otherwise if your threshold values aren't right right on, it will spit out 100 machine gun notes. I sometimes also use the MIDI velocity plug with it in case I need to scale the velocity. I think it is called IXIX/midi_veloctiy or something like that.


Also, ReaTune will send notes out on monophonic material. Handy for me to hum in some garbage and play back as a cello or to run a bass line through and then layer live and a MIDI sound. Just make sure you set the windowing to a large value. 30ms windows will track every little slur. 150ms is more reasonable. :)
