Setup is pretty much the same as previous versions with a few exceptions:
We have implemented a new driver couresty of BomeMIDI. The new input devices will contain an _ (AutoTheory_1, etc.). You can delete the previous SBVIMIDI driver from the device manager (sound, video and game controllers) if you know that you will be buying the upgrade.
We recommend recording directly into AutoTheory before drag n drop exporting to desired DAWs midi tracks. When doing this, you DO NOT want to have your DAW Sequencer recording. You will need to select "AutoTheory Beat Clock" as an output within your DAW, and enable "MIDI Sync" within AutoTheory to synchronize AutoTheory's Sequencer to your DAW.
Understand that MIDI Sync (Beat Clock) is an outdated technology which induces low levels of drift between the DAW and AutoTheory sequencer. After much testing, we feel that the drift is minimal and not very noticable. When more DAWs implement Ableton Link (a much more precise technology), we will gladly incorporate it.
