    Exclamation ProTools and GPO

    Hi there
    I would like to use GPO as a PLug-in on ProTools, meaning I do NOT use a Midi Controller. I wanna be able to record a track onto ProTools and then simply change the let's say it's a piano I've recorded, to Cello e.g.
    Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to do this.
    Can anyone help please?
    Thanks

    What part can't you do? You just need to load GPO as a plugin and route it as your playback source. Once you've got it loaded, you can switch to any GPO instrument you want.

    And when you say you want to "record a track onto Protools", but you "do not use a midi controller", how do you plan to record the midi information without a midi controller? Are you going to draw each note in?

    You need to be more specific about what part of the process you're having problems with.

    Re: ProTools and GPO

    HI first of all thanks for the reply
    I am recording music via instruments e.g. digital pianos. These do not work as midi controllers unless I made a terrible mistake trying to use them as such...I simply want to record a track and then change it to e.g.vln sound, when I am doing this, with the Plug-in function on ProTools, there is no sound ie I don't receive any playback.
    What extactly will I need to do?
    Thanks

    GPO doesn't tell the computer what sounds to play. GPO plays the sounds that a midi file tells it to play.

    It needs a midi track, whether it's input by a midi controller, entered by a mouse or imported from a notation program. From this midi track you insert GPO as a plugin, route it as your output source and hear the GPO sounds.

    If you are recording a digital piano into an audio track in ProTools, there is no way to change that audio track into a different GPO instrument. If you record your digital piano into a midi track, then you would be able to use GPO.
