Software synths and effects have some great advantages. They work right inside your sequencer; you can easily store and access all of your sounds on the computer; and if you want, you can automate changes to your sounds while your sequence plays. All you have to do is twist the knobs of your soft-synth to record the changes. With Midi Quest 10 XL, all of those great features that you have for your soft-synths are now available for your hardware synths and effects. Imagine being able to integrate all of your MIDI hardware into your digital audio sequencer and using it the same way you use your soft-synths. With Midi Quest XL, you can.
Midi Quest XL features its own VST, Studio Connections, and MFX plug-in versions that integrate virtual versions of your hardware into your sequencer. Your MIDI synthesizer or effect unit still creates all of the sound but you create a virtual version of the instrument’s interface and integrate it right into your sequencer. After installation, you can audition sounds, organize a bank, edit a patch, record sound changes into a sequence, or do just about anything else that you would do with a soft-synth. You get all of the advantages of working on the computer without sacrificing that great hardware sound. Everything is handled from the comfort of your computer screen and in the digital audio sequencer of your choice. When you’re done, all of your settings are saved with your song for immediate recall, just like a soft-synth.
