How-to: Use an external MIDI keyboard
Soundation Studio supports external midi keyboards through a background java applet. Please make sure you have the latest version of Java and Flash installed on your computer before proceeding with the instructions below.
Connect your midi keyboard to your computer.
Launch Soundation Studio and click the button in the right corner that says MIDI. The browser will ask you for permission to run the java applet. Press accept. The button will display a spinner to indicate that it's loading the java applet. Wait for the spinner to disappear.
Select the channel you want to play with your keyboard (only instrument channels works with midi, i.e the blue ones). Press a key on your midi keyboard and you should hear the selected instrument play the note.
If you experience a delay between the time your press a key and the sound being played back please lower your buffer size by clicking Settings -> Edit Settings
Please note that lowering your buffer size can result in maxing out your computers CPU faster than on a higher buffer size.
To record what you are playing on the MIDI keyboard simply click the Record button while a blue instrument channel is active and Soundation will automatically record it to a Note Clip. The same applies when using the Virtual Keyboard.
Also note that external MIDI is only supported by:
Internet Explorer 8.0+
Please upgrade if you are running an older version of your browser.
