“How do I hear what my MIDI device (keyboard, drum machine, etc.) is playing from my Digi 001 without recording it?”
There are a number of reasons why you might want to hear your MIDI instruments before, or without having to record it with your Digi 001. The following will get you there!
1. In the Pro Tools software create an auxiliary input channel (mono or stereo) for monitoring the device.
2. Connect the analog outputs of the MIDI device into available inputs on the 001.
3. In the Pro Tools software, set the input of the auxiliary to the input(s) that correspond to where you plugged in your MIDI device.
4. Make sure to bring up the level of the auxiliary since they default to a negative infinity value.
