Thank you very much, @Gino, @Mistercharlie and @erictronic! I’m glad to hear you like the whole live aspect where I can run into problems to solve on the fly !
I absolutely recommend a mouse when working in the piano roll. It is incredibly fast if you get used to a few hotkeys and have the accuracy of a mouse. The shortcuts I use the most is right-shift-click to slice, left click to delete, ctrl+B to duplicate, double-left-click on a grey note to switch to that instrument in the piano roll, holding alt to temporarily disable grid snap, and a few more I can’t remember. I’ve switched my shift-keys so that right-shift is left-shift and vice versa to make the slicing more convenient.
I understand completely how much time making videos can take. When I upload only digitakt or digitone videos, it’s fairly simple because I just take the video from my phone into movie maker and add the audio recording from the DT or DN, and the video is done. But when recording the screen, and also recording the audio in FL Studio while playing and stopping constantly in FL, and recording the Digitakt and my voice with my phone… there’s a lot to keep track of. I did a 20 minute take and another 30 minute take before finally getting everything right on the 3rd take. On each take I made a new track, hehe. OBS works great! It took a bit of work to set up, and it doesn’t support ASIO, so I only used it to record the screen and not audio.
Hehe, I do a lot of preparation beforehand! I run through the tutorial at least once to take notes, then I pick out bits of these notes and write them down with a fancy brush pen, then go through parts of the tutorial again with these new notes. Then I start recording. This lets me do everything in one take and not spend too much time editing the video, and since I know roughly how the tutorial is gonna pan out, I don’t get completely thrown off guard when wierd stuff happens.
Thanks for the thoughtful reply, man !
