@Christoph-Hart said in how to export a final sound clip?:
You can export PercX like any other virtual instrument: record MIDI and bounce that track
The only difference to "traditional" plugins is that you just need to record one note to get the groove going. A MIDI clip containing the C note that starts either the blue or the purple player and is as long as the sequence will do the trick.
The next update will include a function to automatically sync the playback to the DAW playback position, but this is rather useful during sketching (because normally you don't want the percussion to play from start to finish).
I found out what's causing my trouble. What's missing is a clear instruction to use an external midi controller to trigger the drum composition by pressing the C2 key while "recording" on the DAW. While this seems basic, I was trying to use the built-in on-screen keyboard on the PercX VST instance and it wasn't recording at all. You see, I was trying to avoid using a controller as I'm just normally using my notebook computer for my simplified workflow and don't carry a controller all the time. Many will be in the same predicament. I'm sure there are those who would just use loops, clips and chord generators to build some ideas and will not necessarily need to use an external device on certain situations.
After several attempts, I was already suspecting this was the case, so I plugged in my Push the moment I had the chance and voila, I got it working inside Ableton Live 10.1. All I need to figure out now at this point is the multi-channel mix.
Hence, this on-screen keyboard inside PercX is just aesthetic and cannot be used as a trigger. A midi controller is an absolute necessity for PercX to work at this time. The Auddict team can save time for others if you can make this clear from the beginning of the documentation. Better yet, if the built-in on-screen keyboard can function as a virtual midi controller, that will be perfect.
Overall, great piece of software with some potential to improve more. I'm looking forward to your release for other more mainstream genres.
My two cents.
