Hello, i would like to create type 0 MIDI files and import them into the Cthulu plugin to create new chord sets. But somehow it seems to be a really special task for a DAW to do that. Neither Ableton nor Bitwig will export MIDI in this format, instead there are some special, pricy little Apps out there, that can do the trick. Is there anybody on the MAC platform that knows a way to do this? After all this should not be such a difficult taskā€¦

Well how couldnt i think about that haha? I always saw the midi learning function limited to real time playing on the keyboard, but you absolutely right there is no reason why Cthulu should see the difference from routed midi or live playing. I will give it a try this evening. Thanks for the help!

I've used Cthulu before with BitWig but truth be told I was never entirely sure what I was doing with it and never looked too deeply into it, so I don't know if the results I was getting are what's to be expected from the plugin...

Having said that you can route midi INTO Cthulu from tracks elsewhere in your project already - it seems to read it correctly and is able to learn the MIDI chords properly as they come in. This is on Windows 7, mind, so I don't know if it's a Mac specific problem. Rather than exporting MIDI from the plugin, I've been using the MIDI routing in BitWig to record the output into a new track. Hope that helps.
