Chapter 12. Mixing MIDI > Saving MIDI with Effects

Saving MIDI with Effects

When mixing a project, different people will want to use MIDI effects in different ways. Some people will always want to use the mixer and effects live, with all effects running at the same time. Other people will want to freeze the effects into a distinct MIDI part, so they can play it back later without need for the effects.

If you are familiar with traditional audio mixing, freezing is akin to what is called printing effects when recording audio. Some engineers like to add all effects at mixdown so that every sonic decision can be considered and reconsidered. Some prefer to record the effects along with the original signal to tape (or disk) and thereby commit to the sound with the effects. Many people use both approaches. You might want to commit your MIDI effects to new parts for convenience or to have a copy of one attempt to get a good sound, avoiding the trouble of saving and recalling presets later.
