Topic: Harmonies and am I doing something glaringly obviously wrong
A previous post has discussed how harmonies via guitar / midi work (i.e. work out intervals and apply to harmony).
However. I'm struggling to get this to work in the context of "order", (so in order) Guitar or Keyboard / Midi / Aux input / Auto key / roomsense / fixed key ... etc, because unless i'm missing something. I can't seem to get it to work that way.
Usual video (video says more words). I recorded me giving ee vowel on C4 - 20 seconds worth (I did several seconds and copy / paste, rather then C4 for 20 seconds, lol).
Seen - 00:30 - 00:45
1:01 - has the "high and higher" harmony internally set, you can clearly hear the harmonies. I have a fiddle and the harmonies change as per left bottom button changes (high and low .. etc).
NOTE: - You can clearly see it Auto Key (so isn't the troubleshoot error as per Page 36 manual, "If you’re using Guitar or MIDI to control Harmony, make sure you’ve got the Key set to AUTO on the Harmony effect page."
1:41 - 2:25 - I then plugged DX-7 to midi and had High and Higher and played the C4 vowel, whilst applying various C Maj, C Min, C Sus2 ... C, A, C .. etc. But as you can see ... nothing on Harmonies (based on midi data) except the "high and higher internal set intervals".
... Yesterday I tried the same with guitar with the same results of guitar not recognised and apply intervals to harmonies either.
... So seems like the midi instruction was ignored. (Ah ha, I hear you say - cable ... setup, or something like that!!)
2:38 - 3:27 - After watching Tom's Konnect video, I knew about "notes", so I turned harmony to "notes" section and did the same exercise.
... Now you can CLEARLY hear the harmony intervals and individual keyed notes applied to the vowel.
So... In normal mode (harmony - Auto key), is / should midi intervals be applied to the harmony (i.e. as per order Guitar / midi / auto roomsense / fixed key), or am I doing something so glaringly obviously wrong ?
Thanks, Likely it'll be one setting i'm missing (and a jolly good laugh all round)
