according to the manual, there should be a track type called Audio/Midi which is especially helpful for autotune plugins like gsnap. I cannot find it in the dialog, though.
Alternatively, one could always add a midi port to an audio track. I tried this but somehow the MIDI does not arrive. I also tried the reverse, i.e. add a MIDI track and then add an audio port to it. This kind of works but it does not let me change the volume of the audio…
Hi! After you add the MIDI port to the audio track be sure to then delete the audio ports. I use this method all the time for my VSTi work when I just want to record direct to audio (using the post-fader disk I/O via context menu of mixer strip). I think the Audio/Midi type track you refer to is now discontinued.
I’ll be honest…I’ve never tried what you are suggesting. I know enough about how to set up what I already outlined but no more really. Having said that, I’ve just quickly set up your workflow with routing midi track output into the audio track’s midi port and it seems to be possible at least. Whether or not it does exactly what you need with gsnap is another question You’ve piqued my curiosity though.
