    What it wont do

    A computer program can’t be creative the way you can


    Harvest is not a substitute for creativity. To get creative results, it has to be used creatively. Harvest can be a source of inspiration, but ultimately the quality of what it generates will depend on how you use it.

    Setup

    Setup

    After you have completed the standard process of installing the plugin into your chosen plugins folder,

    Step 1: Make two new MIDI tracks.
    Step 2: Apply the Harvest-beta plugin onto one track, and apply your MIDI instrument of choice to the other.
    Step 3: On the “Midi From” drop down on your instrument track, change from “All Ins” and select the MIDI track that Harvest is on.
    Step 4: Still on the instrument track, change the “Monitor” setting from “Auto” to “In”.
    Step 5: Arm the Harvest track for recording.

    Harvest Mini is now ready for use

    TIP: We recommend creating a dedicated folder for MIDI clips created with Harvest. Having done this, you can save the folder and easily access your new MIDI clips in Ableton’s browser.
