Not sure if this is possible, but it would be nice to be able to drag MIDI data and drop it on to MIDIBox to load it.

Scaler lets you drag data to other places, a DAW channel, File Explorer, other plugins etc, it would be nice to be able to go straight into Unify. This could be nice if you're working in a DAW and wanted to move quickly in and out, say if you made a mistake.

But I know this might be a lot of work, and also need to figure out a way to save the data with the patch if it's not already a stored file.

Windows 10 Pro 64Bit 20H2 (19042.630) UK English // Intel Core i5-9500 // 40GB RAM // Behringer U-Phoria UMC204HD // Cubase Pro 11

I hope to have features like this in a future update.

I watched yesterdays Livestream - drag and drop is coming to the MIDI Box soon. Great feature! Are there any plans for MIDI Box to support multiple MIDI files (let's say 24 patern banks selectable by the lowest range of the keyboard or pads: notes between C0 and C1)? I've been using FXpansion Geist2 for a long time to route my MIDI beats to my VST Drum Instruments and it works great - drag and drop works both ways and if you play life you can switch the beat on the fly! The only limitation is that Geist2 is more drum oriented and can process MIDI notes only between C1-C8 (+Notes for pattern selection). Also, my old Kore software has a MIDI player built-in (it supports multiple MIDI files), unfortunately, drag and drop works only one way, so I can't move loaded files back to the sequencer.

No plans. We use type-1 multi-track MIDI files to achieve similar ends.

I forgot about type-1 multi-track MIDI files - this may be a good solution for me, thanks!

Hi @Robert.P

I found a way to create midi stacks of your midi files very quickly. Here is a link to my post:

Hope it helps you.

 

Regards,

Jason

I downloaded the Midi Database v 4.7, very nice tool. Also, I found out that I don't need a MIDI merger or GNMIDI - I can simply drag and drop multiple midi files to the Studio One arranger area, export it as Type 1 Multitrack MIDI file and then load it to AKAI MPC. As far as I remember, Cakewalk by Bandlab (which is free DAW) can also save MIDI as Type 1

@robery.p - I'm glad to see that there are other options available. I actually have Cakewalk but haven't really been using it much since Unify came out...

I was playing with Unify as a plugin within a Cakewalk - beautiful DAW, integrated with excellent clip launcher - works great with multiple instances of Unify. I even have a 20 years old Cakewalk StudioMix with motorised faders on my desk right now - it's built like a tank, no issues:)
