Synchronization with DAW

Linking Synfire with your DAW

Hanging Notes

This issue has been reported for Cubase and EastWest PLAY system (EWQL). It may also occur with other plug-ins, sound libraries or DAWs.

When running PLAY inside one or more Drones in Cubase, you may experience hanging (dangling) notes. That is, notes continue to sustain after playback stopped. The issue does not occur in the Synfire Audio Engine. It does not seem to have anything to do with Synfire.

Automating Ableton Live native instruments from Synfire

This no longer seems possible with Ableton Live 9. You can use Synfire to send midi cc to ableton and use an instrument's midi learn to map the controller but the native instruments (all rack controls, operator, etc) do not work. They only seem to respond to midi cc sent from a real midi controller.

Hi there,

if you want to use Synfire as a midi sequencer, Engines,no Rack saves,
just  Midi Drones and want to host everything in the DAW

with Reaper mainly and the FL Studio.
