Capture MIDI

  • Live Versions: 10
  • Operating System: All

Live 10 is always listening to MIDI input on armed or input-monitored tracks and capture MIDI lets you retrieve the material you’ve just played on those tracks. For detailed information about this feature, have a look at the dedicated section of the Live manual.

CPU usage

MIDI information has very low bandwidth, therefore capture MIDI uses minimal system resources.

Capturing notes from a synthesizer keyboard

If a hardware synthesizer has a built in keyboard, then it has to be connected by USB/MIDI and enabled as an input on a MIDI track. The track's Monitor needs to be set to IN or armed for recording.
