    Hi, I downloaded the trial versions of pianoteq and additive keys, I like the additive keys better I think, but I'm not for sure, I wanna spend more time with both of them, the additive keys works so much better then the fl studio ones

    Yes! Progress. Do Additive Keys and Pianoteq play properly, like you expect in terms of responsiveness? If they do, then you know the Kawai's sending scaling is good, but the receive is the problem!

    Good news.

    Both of them for sure working so much better then fl studio, I can play quietly or loudly, I can actually play a song on the piano and it sounds good throught them, I'm not a 100% sure its reading all the way up to 127 thought, When I was doing the calibration with pianoteq, the hardest input I could get was like 84. So I gotta test more, but so far works so much better.

    I got the cubase trial downloaded, I can only trial the elements version I guess, even thought on the website it says trial the cubase pro, but all links on the website lead to elements 30 day trial, I dont think elements has any kind of midi support yet from, looking at it from there website

    Last time I looked, while ago, you needed to buy a dongle to run Pro (fair enough I suppose for a month's "hire"). Elements SHOULD do MIDI!

    I have El 6 on several PCs (have dongle, Cubase will travel) and I bought it years ago because the one before did not have Mackie Control.
    I am sure a regular Cubaser here will help you qucker than I but if you are really stuck I will hunt up me dongle and have a look.

    Compare the versions of Cubase | Steinberg

    Elements has perfectly wonderful MIDI support. I Have elements 9.5 on my MacBook - at first glance, it's so close to the full version I doubt people even notice. Asa you can see from the screenshot it has FULL MIDI features. You really worry me. Opening it up would have shown you exactly what it can do, and the MIDI menu will have things I doubt you will even understand yet. For what it is worth, Cubase was a 100% MIDI platform in the 90s, and what was added as it progressed was audio, which was NOT normal back then. The MIDI toolbox it had back then was really good, and it's got better and better since. Please - stop reading stuff you don't really understand and just start using the damn thing and make some music with it. The demo you have can be upgraded to the full version, or left at the lower level, or you can go to artist, as elements is oldish now. All the MIDI features you need are there, plus dozens you won't even need. Everyday I see things in newly found menu dropdown I have never seen before. As you can see, it can score too, but that will take you plenty of time to get to grips with. Right click on the column where tracks appear and it gives you a list of many different types of tracks you can create. The full version has even more, like VCAs etc. Folders, groups, instruments, midi and audio are normal, plus tempo and time signature if you wish.

    This file comes from pro 10 - as you can see it loads fine, and if you look carefully in the right hand lower side you can see the only thing that happened was that it tried to use a sound from my studio computer that doesn't exist on the MacBook - a clarinet - just look for the !! in the box. Same thing happens if you try to load a song with dozens of tracks, it says it cannot - there are too many, and it will get cross with things like VCA tracks which elements cannot understand. Everything created on elements loads fine into the pro version.

    That's kind of ok but confusing. Remember that if you create an audio track, it asks if you want mono or stereo. If in the studio section you have two inputs activated, mono uses 1, and stereo uses 1 and 2. You can create individual mono inputs, or if you only ever record stereo, then have them as stereo tracks, Entirely up to you.

    A few things to remember. Before you do any recording in a new project, save it into the folder you want, because it creates an audio folder and any real audio you record, gets stuck in there. If you start recording before saving, it creates a folder (if it doesn't exist) on your drive and the audio folder will be there. Saving the file later will not ,move all the audio you recorded. If you don't name the individual tracks, then it saves as audio_1.wav. Then the next one, audio_2.wav - and so on. If you have six projects, each with ten audio files, the audio folder will have 60 files in it, and finding the right one next month will be tricky! If you name the track saxophone, then it saves with saxophone.wav which is far more helpful.

    On a computer - it's "go advanced' in the reply section. Not sure on a phone.
