Midi Buffer Size
Midi buffer size limits application to maintain only selected number of midi data. Select as much as events that you would need to maintain in application. Once the selected limit is exceeded, Capture Midi will start to erase the most old melodies, leaving your new ones.
Remember: Favourites are not deleted and will always stay in a grid.
To have some perspective, single note on midi piano involves 2 events, Note On/Off. Modulation wheel up generates 128 events.
If you for example select 10 000 events, (default value) you will have to play 5000 notes on midi keyboard before the melody grid gets starting to trim, or 39 full turns of midi modulation wheel.
Auto connect Midi

Configure how often application will autosave your melodies to disk.
If you export some of your melodies from Logic Pro X application, and your melody is located somewhere on 8th, 16th bar, the silence information is included in the midi file when exported. Capture midi once load the midi file that has a offset information, and will start playback as soon as possible.
