Changing effects but can't save it (midifile)
« on: March 12, 2020, 12:41:09 PM »
Hi!
I have recorded a song as midi but after saving it I need to edit the reverb and the volume of some instruments.
I have the file loaded in midimulti and film there go to the mixer. While listening to the song I do the necessary changes, stop the playback and go to save and saves the file.
When I then play back the saved file none of my edits are there. When looking at the file on the mixer everything is back to their first saved settings.
What am I doing wrong?
(Genos has the latest update)

you have to save the changes before save the midi file

Before you save the midi, touch the 'Setup' icon beside it. This is used to apply the changes you made in the mixer to the file.

DerekA is right, you have to confirm the changes with the Setup button. Look at that moment in the video.

Yes, that must be it!
I actually suspected it had something to do with that function but when I clicked on Setup the only thing that was ticked was Keyboard voice and everything else was greyed out and couldn't be changed.
Well I'm at work right now but can't wait til I get home to try this out.
I'll report back tonight.
Thanks guys!

Make sure you've rewound to the start of the song.

Panel voice settings can be burned into any position of the song, and you can do that multiple times in a song.

But mixer settings can only be burned into the start.

That's not to say you cannot edit a song to change volume, etc - just that the shortcut of applying mixer settings only works at the start of the song.
