Come on, bax - midi ain't no monster ???

tilikato! You can draw envelopes in the bottom window of the piano roll or convert the tracks to wav and use the timeline envelopes.

One more question... (and I'm back).

Now let's assume I get a midi keyboard and I want to add the notes in the pianoroll by playing it along with the base track.

So what is the procedure then:
I connect that to my midi input of my interface, right?

Then what? Let's assume that I have chosen the string synth and I have proceeded into point what bbrown instructed:

Quote: 

From the menu click Add Channel->Add New Instrument Channel->VSTi->n-Track Strings. Then add a blank midi track. Right-click the midi track and then click Properties. Select channel 16 from the Channel drop-down. Then in the Output port field select "Instrument plug-in n-Track Strings". Open the piano roll and click a piano key. You should hear sound from the synth.

If you've got the string synth responding to your midi controller then you should simply be able to hit record and go at it. You won't see anything in the timeline as you play until you stop recording. Was actually playing around with that last night with SampleTank when I came to a realization..... I suck as a keyboard player. :-)

Yeah, probably I too can put the notes more accurately by drawing them one by one.  :laugh:

With n-T V6 you can click the dropdown on the left of the track timeline and choose 'add new midi track'. Choose the channel you want bearing in mind that n-T uses C10 for drums. Make sure you have the recording mode set to midi (top tool bar: piano, piano/mic, mic).
Where are you up to now varakeef - got the keyboard - up and running with the strings?

I'm still in "draw the notes" phase... just feel a bit tempted to try a keyboard since I'm so happy I even got a sound from a midi stuff. But no, I don't have a keyboard yet.

But if I ever do my plan is to find the instructions from this thread I posted in.   :)

Been trying this out as well.
With a brand new song project it works well, using a usb keyboard to play/record in real time. I'm not having the lag times and don't have to slide the recorded tracks over to get in sync like I did when I last tried.  But maybe this is because it is a new fresh project.  Maybe
older recorded projects still have the lag issues, I will need to try that again.
But as has been said, the volume envelopes on the midi tracks do not work.  So the only 2 ways around this are to either record the midi to an audio track and then do the envelope changes on the audio track, or "You can draw envelopes in the bottom window of the piano roll"?
TonyR, for the second one, is there a way to do this for a sustained single note?  Using the freehand velocity drawing tool only seems to impact the initial note, not the following sustain, for me.

Hi Pingcat. Just grab a note and drag it around - left-click and hold the right hand edge of the note and drag it to any length - great fun:-)

How are the strings sounding? My daw is still dead.
