FLOW CAPTURE is a special recording function built into the Keyscape Standalone app that lets you grab spontaneous musical moments without having to open your DAW.
You can think of it as a notepad that records audio, MIDI, and .keyscape formats simultaneously — perfect for those occasions when inspiration strikes and you need to capture the moment right away.
You can hide/show Flow Capture by clicking the arrow in the center of the Footer.
Because it captures audio, any incoming MIDI data, and saves the entire state of Keyscape at the time of recording, FLOW CAPTURE makes it easy to continue developing your ideas. Simply drag the .mid and .wav files into your DAW, drop the .keyscape file on top of Keyscape, and you’re all set!
USING FLOW CAPTURE
Click the FLOW CAPTURE record button to place it in Wait Record mode. The button will flash and wait for your first MIDI event (it can be a note, CC, etc) to begin recording. When you are done recording, click the FLOW CAPTURE record button again to stop.
Once you have stopped recording, use the resulting dialog box to save the generated files to the location of your choice.
By default, file names will be auto-numbered, contain the date, and include the first recorded BPM if the Metronome was used during recording.
After clicking “Save,” your files will be ready to use in your DAW for further editing and Flow Capture is immediately ready to record the next idea.
NOTE: The .keyscape file saved after a FLOW CAPTURE recording contains the global state of the instrument with the Patch and settings that were used when recording. Dropping this file onto Keyscape will override the sounds and settings currently loaded in the instrument.
In the Standalone SETTINGS panel, you can choose which file formats will be generated and saved by FLOW CAPTURE—the default is all three.
- Audio (.wav): 24bit WAVE file. The sample rate is determined by the setting in the Sample Rate menu.
- MIDI (.mid): Standard MIDI file (Type 0). MIDI messages (notes, CCs, pitch bend, aftertouch, program changes, etc) received during the recording will be included in the .mid file., along with tempo and tempo changes.
- Share Sounds (.keyscape): Includes all the settings used at the time of recording.
NOTE: Flow Capture records MIDI data ONLY into the midi file — it does not capture mouse movements. If you want to record movements, use MIDI learn and assign MIDI controllers to your desired destinations in Keyscape. All your movements will be recorded and work in any other DAW.
