    Orchestral Tools - Introducing the SINE Player: Episode 4 Added

    Maybe I'm too "subjective" but to me it's probably for the first time that I don't get that immediate feeling of "screw Kontakt, we will have our own PLAYer just for the sake of having it and it doesn't matter that it's worse in performance and/or functionality, not having to pay licensing fees...

    Quicktime 7 Alternative / Video Info Utility App

    Check out ff-Works, a very deep app or rather a ffmpeg GUI - encoding queue, watch folders, regular updates etc. Also compared to Quicktime it's really fast (like 4 times or even more) - uses all available cores so it converts 1 hour full HD H264 to DNxHD in about 14 minutes on my 2013 6-core...

    Loudness war even in film soundtracks 2019?

    This thread gets me right back to the year 1999 when I bought RHCHP Californication CD. All the transients were chopped off on the entire thing, well actually there were no transients, just a square wave and I couldn't believe that a band like this could release such a shitty master. Well, at...

    Bulthner Model one

    Once I came across VSL Synchron Pianos, my quest for “the best” and the most versatile piano libraries has finally ended. Here’s VSL Blüthner (you have a typo in the name of the brand) https://www.vsl.co.at/en/Synchron_Pianos_Bundle/Bluthner_1895 Also, CPU load has nothing to do with a memory...

    Melda releases statement suggesting Mac users finally consider switching to Windows

    You might find this thread very interesting, Apple "language police" suggest mac developers how to communicate Catalina incompatibilities. Not surprising, unfortunately. I'm on a mac platform over 20 years and it makes me sad. Seriously considering jumping the ship at this point...

    I think Audiobro Genesis is also a good example, so yes, It's more and more common to include this feature in newer libraries when appropriate.

    Are you always like that? Haven't noticed before. Anyway, I'm not complaining in any way, shape or form, I just thought that NI/OT could use my $500 for a charity. But it doesn't matter, I'll vote with my wallet. You're absolutely right, it's time to remember, that I'm a customer here.

    Suggestions for a top notch digital piano?

    As always, buy what YOU like and not what prefers a random guy on the internet like me :-). I don't care for Nord's hammer action either, it feels kinda springy, spongy to me. I really like Roland RD-2000 and higher end Yamaha models like AvantGrande series. I also had a chance to play Kawai...

    Which is better -- X-Form or Pitch 'n Time?

    Regarding time shifting, black holes do help immensely. You just missed Eventide Blackhole sale, it was $29. Body spaghettification is just a minor drawback.

    Which is better -- X-Form or Pitch 'n Time?

    You mean pitch shifting and time stretching? I love it. I hate subs but this is exactly the scenario when it comes handy - I need to use a $500 plugin and that's it. It's not for a year, it's just 30 bucks and I'm out. If I didn't need Pro Tools Ultimate on a daily basis I would definitely use...

    Which is better -- X-Form or Pitch 'n Time?

    Yes, it works like that. Avid complete plug-in bundle license has an expiration date but your perpetual Pro Tools license never expires. That's why you can run the last available version of Pro Tools at the time your perpetual license lapsed. And you forgot the third option, which may be the way...

    Which is better -- X-Form or Pitch 'n Time?

    If you’re subscribed to PT Ultimate, X-form is really included in your Avid complete bundle. You should be able to download the bundle from your Avid account. https://www.avid.com/plugins/avid-complete-plugin-bundle

    RAM upgrade for Mac Pro-is this a good deal?

    Looks good, EEC. I'd say very cheep indeed. I bought my 64GB kit for $400 and one of the sticks was faulty. Got a new one from the seller fast. Better make sure this would be the case from your seller too. Otherwise I don't see a problem here.

    MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.6 Seems to trash Kontakt 5/6

    I updated my trashcan from Sierra to Mojave 10.14.6 last week. Kontakt 5 and 6 perform well in Nuendo and standalone, haven't tried VEP yet. Batch re-saving works as expected. I was hesitant but it's been all good so far. And now I'm even worried to write this:-)

    Older Mac's Remaining Lifecycle ?

    Trashcan is still a current Mac Pro so I expect it to be supported for a few more years. I just upgraded from low Sierra to Mojave yesterday. I need Pro Tools and it always takes Avid around 6-9 months to catch up. But even with Logic, if you really need to get the work done on your machine...
