We are aware of some issues that will eventually be fixed in future updates. Also some side notes should help you to quickly get the results you are looking for.
Here's an overview so you know what it's about:
- The audio output might sound a bit delayed (by up to 23ms). This is due to the improved chord recognition, as the plug-in waits a moment in case more notes arrive, so it doesn't play a wrong chord.
- The following settings can reduce the delay:
1. Set Humanize to Tight
2. Set the Player Sync to Song Position:
3. As a compensation, film composers with high-end sample libraries use a negative MIDI-delay for the track. You can do this with IRON 2 as well, if you want it to play tighter to super-tight. How to exactly do that differs from DAW to DAW.
4. Try placing the MIDI notes a bit too early. Make sure they don't overlap though.
Playing Legato & Quantization
- If notes overlap, the plugin engine will recognize that and try to play an interval or a chord. So playing legato or having not quantized MIDI data can lead to unwanted results.
- Make sure to always have a small gap between the notes that don't belong together!
- IRON 2 supports the Presonus Studio One Integration (Follow Chord Feature and Sound Variations; VST only). This feature might interfere with the regular way of using MIDI notes in the piano roll (highlighted red).
- If you don't wanna use Sound Variations, simply go to the Sound Variation settings and select "Use Activation Sequence".
- Also the Follow Chords feature only works in Play Mode: Chord
- After reopening a saved session, the Follow button needs to get switched off and on to reactivate the feature.
- Initial preset might not get loaded.
- In order to play back dragged MIDI phrases you need to switch to Instrument Mode.
- Under certain rare circumstances playing sus4 or sus2 chords may result in a DAW crash.
- Using the Force control sometimes might cause a slapback echo-effect.
- Playing dragged MIDI Phrases might cause switching of phrases in Player Mode.
