[Replied] Keeps installing things in C:\ and other questions
I've installed and uninstalled this many times, including deleting the directories I've found, but I don't want anything on C:\ I keep my OS on C:\ and nothing else. I have my steam folder set-up in D:\Steam. Why isn't this working?

And another thing, I see that this comes with only a few instruments. For example it only has one drum set, is there a way to add more drums, etc. What if I want a nine drum set up? I like how streamlined the instruments are that come standard with this program, but is there a way to find free instrament sets online? I've mainly seen synths that I'd have to pay for.

I bought the World Instruments Expansion as well as the Keyboard Expansion, but am I required to use the Cakewalk Sound Center to use my Drum sounds or can I bring them over to the Drums instrument that came with Music Creator 6 Touch?

Also, is there an easy way to create samples by adding fx to sounds? I like that you can check a box to create beats, but can I modify the sound as it starts and begins so it flows into the next note?

Cakewalk Sound Center , is how u made beats old school , multiple stabes from many things export then inport when channels was limited,,,, u need to hit + a few times to cover scale synth is offering u ,,,, the drum kit is for guitarists to make a good backing track , use synth if u wanna corrupt s""t up

fx to loops ,,, ok u got a sound - on channel "parent/main" create a sibling , now u can automate it will give u all options /atk/del/mod ,, every thing effects u added offers , now u write on sib what u want every effect to do bit by bit...its a DAW , takes lil more effort but u have more control

to add effect ,, when u click chan look on blank window on left click the + ,


good luck mate

Hi Dean0null,

For the folders issue I've already fielded it here in this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/222710/discussions/0/846959179217051457/ Everything I said in that thread can apply to you. Just send me a friend invite. Personally, I have a small System OS drive myself 80GB, I move the additional content manually and change the folder paths.

The SI-Set actually has multiple kit sounds. Left click on the default.prog. You'll see a selection list pop up. The SI-Kit is a fundamental drum kit synth though, if you want really expansive and customizable kits you'll likely want to invest in a dedicated drum synth. Otherwise you could insert 2 instances of SI-Drums and have MIDI content trigger different kits. In my recording experience I've found there's a few ways to skin a cat.

You'll need to use Sound Center with the expansion packs, but they are triggered in exactly the same way as SI-Drums. Via MIDI data in the track/matrix/step sequencer.

You'll want to start delving into MIDI CC notes and the other expression features of that format. If you click the Right facing triangle in the Step Sequencer you'll see a bunch of controls exposed.

Thanks for the reply. I am looking at maybe getting this midi controller: http://www.amazon.com/Akai-Pro-MPK-Ultra-Portable-Controller/dp/B00466HM28

Do you know if it will work with this program? I kind of want to mess around with recording drums, keyboards, etc. before I invest in a midi controller since I have no music experience. Is there a way to record by clicking on the virtual instrument buttons or by using a PC keyboard? I've only been able to create anything by adding each note one at a time via mouse clicks so far.

That MIDI controller should work.

You can use your mouse to trigger VST instruments via the Step Sequencer under Views > Step Sequencer. You can also sequence via the Views > Piano Roll or Views > Staff.

For triggering via your computer keyboard, this is not implemented natively. Check out this free app though: http://vmpk.sourceforge.net/
