What is MIDI Out?
Playback can control live production alongside purchased, rented, or uploaded MultiTracks to keep your lyrics, lights, and everything else in sync with MIDI Cues. Add MIDI Cues to any song in your Library, and send them out of Playback to control software or musical hardware that receives MIDI Notes, Control Change (CC), or Program Change (PC) messages.
How do I Unlock MIDI Out in Playback?
MIDI Cues can be used in Playback in a couple of ways.
A Cloud Pro Intro subscription or higher unlocks MIDI Cue cloud storage in your account, which means that MIDI Cues added to songs in your library via MultiTracks.com can be used with any tier of Playback. However, all cue editing and uploading must be done online.
How do I edit my MIDI Cues directly in Playback?
A Playback Pro subscription unlocks creating MIDI Cues directly in Playback, which can be done locally with or without Cloud Pro. Edit any MIDI Cues previously uploaded, or add new cues directly on the timeline. However, saving any MIDI Cues added in Playback to the Cloud for use in other setlists requires Cloud Pro Intro.
WE RECOMMEND: Cloud Pro Plus unlocks MIDI Cue cloud storage and includes a Playback Premium seat, unlocking MIDI Cue editing in Playback.
