    For those who bought Hans Zimmer Strings, do you still recommend it?

    I love HZS because of the dimensions in sound it offers in contrast to my other string libraries. I used HZA extensively with touches of SF's OA Chamber strings and while the shorts are limited, the power of using sections on RHS, Ctr and LHS along with the mic sections really offers such a...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    I placed a support request and secured an appointment later today and just now I was able to see the update. I think the ability to update is a rolling update and I have noticed before that with Logic Prox I don't get the ability to update until several days after the release. I suspect after...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    I own Logic Pro X and have 10.4.4 but I can't get the update window. When I go to the link it just shows all the promo and the Open button, but the version I have is 10.4.4. Why can't I get to the update like I do the other times?

    VEP6 and Logic Pro X

    @procreative, did you solve being able to enable VEP by Enabling or Disabling a Track in Logic. Marco Di Stefano has done this nicely with Cubase. I wanted to do the same thing you are doing with Lemur. Here is the link to marco's Lemur Template...

    John, I really like the sounds I am getting for the SF Orchestra. I am really much happier wth SF brass now than before the extention. It is so much more improved. I really used the Cinebrass alot before I acquired the mic extentions. My only issue is that my CPU performance was...

    I have an iMac Pro which has the Radeon Pro Vega 56 with 8GB of HBM2 memory which is a better GPU options on the other Macs. Hopefully this is much better than the other mac computers. However if I go to a PC option that will be something I consider for sure. My biggest concern is how I...

    Question.. If I redesigned my template so as to reduce the number of VEP sessions by increasing the number if ports in VEP, does anyone know if I would reduce my Cpu pressure? For instance, I was considering putting all my Strgs in one session by increasing the ports in VEP to house maybe 40...

    I agree with you that I would love more articulations. This library provides so much excitement to a score but does require Eq/ reverb magic to integrate it with other libraries properly.

    Logic Pro X SMTPE locking and rubato

    I have done this numerous times but found you need to take care to have a copy incase the play back gets messed up. You use the beat map and create a bar line on the First beat then begin to align each subsequent beat where your rubato performance changes but do this process in order of the...

    Logic X - Articulations stopped working

    What version of Logic are you using. I had an issue with 10.4.3 that seems to be bettering 10.4.4 . Once you have a region with notes in a track and have Chase Notes enabled. it seems to break articulation switching when just playing. It seems to lock any notes you play to the last articulation

    Favorite Music YouTube Channels?

    Last Thanksgiving when I was in Indiana, I went by to meet with Ashton and see his studio. He is still only 17 or 18 now. I am so impressed by this young man, he is truly gifted. We will definitely see much more from his talent.
