Vocaloid and Ableton Live 5

I recently bought an E-MU 1212M soundcard :D and after checking out all the demosoftware I chose to go with Ableton Live5 8) . I was very much looking forward to put the VOCALOID VST to work in Live5. The VST seems to work fine but regretfully the midi format that is used by VOCALOID is not recognized by Live5.

After checking out this forum for help I came across the vocController rewire work around for this problem. This program works fine in Live5 but does not have the full capabilities of the VOCALOID VST :P . I would like to change all the singer parameters realtime. I don’t need to edit the lyrics in Live5 but having some basic control over the midi track would be great. Using Re-Wire directly with Vocaloid does not add functionality in this case.

Does anyone know about a possible fix for this problem?

1) Ableton could create support for NRPN parameters in midi sequences like vocController does (or maybe by accepting the format and ignoring the lyrics but still send them to the VST during playback).
2) VOCALOID can use alternate coding for midi files that is supported by most Sequencer programs. for example: split the midi files in [i:3u86ncy6]file[/i:3u86ncy6].mid & [i:3u86ncy6]file[/i:3u86ncy6].lyr and then re-synch these files during synthesis.

It is to bad that two excellent programs that both support VST don’t seem to work together <img class=” />

[quote="easterman":53i34n97]I contacted Ableton Support and they got back to me, requesting an example Vocaloid midi file. They are looking into it and that is great news! <img class=” /> [/quote:53i34n97]
