G stomper controlling another software via MIDI

Postby Relaxandreflect » Tue Jun 19, 2018 8:38 pm

From what I've read I don't think this is possible. I would like to know if it is possible or it isn't coming feature to be able to take the pattern that you make through the sequencer and have it seed out through midi to a drum software such as Superior drummer in Ableton. Basically the same as exporting the midi file and then importing it into Superior drummer but being able to do that live

Not sure where you've read that, but it's a wrong information.

You can do the following in all G-Stomper apps:
1. Send MIDI out in real time (drum machine, synth, and everything else).
2. Turn off the internal audio by setting a particular track as MIDI instrument.

That is exactly what you're looking for.
Just watch the MIDI showcase and you'll see:

Here's how to set tracks as MIDI instruments:

Thanks for the reply. Would this use USB, bluetooth, or Ableton Link?

Either MIDI over USB or Bluetooth LE. But I'd strongly recommend to use MIDI over USB, since Bluetooth LE always has a less accurate timing and a higher latency than USB (on any app and platform).

Ableton Link is for synchronization over WiFi and has nothing to do with MIDI.

Okay I understand now. Are there any plans to connect the Wi-Fi with MIDI? I just purchased it and this is a great app so far

Thanks a lot for the kind words.
So far there are no plans for MIDI over WiFi, as there is no API available yet. But that might change in the future.
