Is it possible to export / import sequencer clips as MIDI files ? My guess is "no", because I cannot find any information about this. Although it would be a great feature to have in Drambo.
Not yet, but it is widely believed that MIDI import/export will be added to a coming update.
Unfortuately no, for now your best bet is to use some app like LK Matrix or Photon AU to record and then use their MIDI file export capabilities.
Actually, also any non-AU app with MIDI export should work for recording.
Yes, I was already thinking about using LK because I already have it.
MIDI Tape Recorder is free, simple, and extremely accurate for recording all MIDI, including MPE.
I have for now settled for 4 Pockets Helium sequencer to record clips. Step recording and the media bay make this task pretty easy, and the UI fits well in Drambo. LK will then be used as a clip launcher and advanced sequence editor for playback.
It’s a little bit involved, though once you get used to it, it’s not that tricky, and it allows you to import into Drambo’s Piano roll…
Any reason why you don't record the clips inside LK?
It also does excellent MIDI file import and export.
No step recording. SR is essential for me. The moment they implement step recording into LK, it will be my preferred app.
