Is loopMIDI able to route a MIDI stream from a sequencer to a virtual synth and to a hardware synth at the same time?

asked by about loopMIDI

Here's what I'm trying to do:

Use Band-in-a-Box (BIAB - a MIDI composer/arranger/sequencer program) to send the MIDI stream to the CoolSoft VirtualMIDISynth (which it does now, just fine) and also to a TC Helicon VoiceLive 3 vocal harmony processor (hardware). The VirtualMIDISynth plays the MIDI notes and responds to instrument program changes. While playing, BIAB also reads the name of the chord in each bar in the chord sheet. It then sends the MIDI notes which define the chord (ex.. C major would send the notes C, E and G - sustained) to the VoiceLive 3 on an unused MIDI channel thru a USB or MIDI cable. The VoiceLive3 uses this MIDI chord info to intelligently harmonize vocals in real-time.

Yes, the software is capable of routing streams through ports, but you will have to make sure that those applications you use support forwarding through MIDI ports. Additionally, loopMIDI needs to run for as long as you are routing the stream. Once it's close, you will have to repeat the process. Unfortunately, there isn't much information about the software and the way it works except the description from the official website.

To find more about it, access the official page and use the contact options to get in touch with the developer: http://tobias-erichsen.de/loopMIDI.html
