    Orange Tree?

    That’s a wonderfully full and resonant mix you’re getting there, Carlos. May I ask about the processing?

    Don't use too much antelope horn. If your selection lasts for more than 4 hrs, see a doctor immediately. Oh wait, that's rhino horn. Never mind.

    Is Summer Becoming the New Black Friday for Sample Librariesl?

    Well, there are some interesting forces in play. The increase in the amount of hobbyists has created a pretty big new market, and there are new customers coming online every day. Hobbyists, pros, prosumers, and every range in between. Big developers have developed various marketing plans...

    1920's music

    I’m more of a Freddie Green guy, but yeah I can. Is there a banjo library out there that does tremolos up the neck and comping?

    1920's music

    I need to write about 10 minutes of 1920's music tomorrow for an assignment. I have a fair amount of tools for this task (assuming vintage processing) but I would be interested in anyone's thoughts about helpful and specific libraries. Thanks.

    The New York Thread

    Years ago, I was encouraged by a friend to move to LA, because as he said “there’s work here.” At the time, I still had a very decent career here but I’ve pretty much aged out and the landscape has changed vastly. I’d say that geographically, LA is your best shot- but what has NEVER changed is...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    I got to go with Mike Fox here. I rented a room for a few years in a studio complex and became pals with some of the pop and hip hop producers in other rooms. Their instrument is ProTools, and they are amazingly good with it. A few guys in particular were really good instinctual musicians and...

    Swing/Swing More vs Broadway Lites

    dzlizzi, have you ever considered Sample Modeling/Audio Modeling products? They’re not for the faint of heart I ‘spose but they give you much more control.

    VEPro Decouple Question

    I am mostly doing short form work, but I only use templates as starters. When I'm done with my song/project in Cubase, I save the VEP metaframe with the same name as my Cubase project. If I'm using my slave computer, I save that metaframe with the same name as well. When I want to reload that...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    Putting on my songwriter/singer/producer hat for a moment, how's AIVA coming along with the Dylan-esque lyrics, a charismatic and cool presence, a voice that cuts through the herd? How's AIVA doing with trashing hotel rooms, swilling Jack Daniels, writing hip hop lyrics about hard times and...

    Less empathy than in recent times. It’s easy to say that social media amplifies things because it does, clearly, convincingly, appallingly. It also aggregates hateful people who would never have found each other and allows them to gather their shared bigotry, disinformation, confused and...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    You’re a modern guy. That’s not necessarily a compliment, but it’s not necessarily a criticism. It just draws a line between you and I. Do you embrace every part of modernity? Better ways to kill, a lessening of human empathy as the world grows more tribal? The widening of the income gap...

    SWAM Saxophones question

    I have them. As I suspected, very similar sounding products, but the SWAM version has a few more options for humanization and I like that. I’ve put them to good use already and am quite pleased with my purchase and the deal they offered.

    A question about installing K12U libraries via NA(Mac)Solved

    I tried to install friggin’ Battery 4 from Komplete 12U 4 times but it doesn’t install content anywhere that I can find. I change the install path and reinstall, nothing. It makes me feel murderous. I can’t remember a single problem I had with Service Center, now I’ve had two in three days with...

    Cubase 9.5 Not Quitting?

    It can replace me. I’m 65, eminently replaceable. I could give a crap. As to VI’s, sequencers, etc etc, I totally agree. Tech allowed me to profit and people lost work. They already came for me in other ways, but all I’m saying is I have no desire to “learn to work with (that) tech.” Not...

    Cubase 9.5 Not Quitting?

    Well, that sounds like a sensible enough idea. Here's the thing-other than the known Cubase bugs though (like not closing without hanging) I don't have any problems with plug-ins. I don't scan, I don't rebuild, I don't trash. My computer is limiting because it's a 2008 Mac Pro, but I also have a...

    Cubase 9.5 Not Quitting?

    Personally, I never screw with a (mostly) working system. Crash on close doesn’t affect my workflow. As evidence of this philosophy, I’m still on Cubase 6.02, from 2011 :)

    Cubase 9.5 Not Quitting?

    Your input is appreciated, but....how can I say this....ummm... NEVER. I would personally NEVER try that. I’ll take the hang on closedown instead. The only thing that annoys me is that a force quit means the project doesn’t show in the Recent Projects list, but I can live with it.

    Spitfire Solo Strings or CSSS?

    Yes, but no one has found a solution to the problem yet. I have CSSS, and the vibrato there is on or off. I like the tone the ease of use and the agility but find the vibrato too intense.

    Trying to figure out Orange Tree Samples

    Older Voice Memos no longer play on iPhone

    SWAM Saxophones question

    If I had them, I could tell you, because I use the SM saxes all the time, but since AudioModeling is never gonna offer me a reasonably priced crossover deal (what’s so hard about that anyway? It’s found money) I guess I won’t be able to.

    PEDAL STEEL by Impact Soundworks - Available NOW w/ intro pricing!

    SOLVED. I should have tried this a day ago-I changed the install path to an internal SSD rather than an external SSD. I have no idea why it has to be that way, but it now works, and it is fan-friggin'tastic. Don't delay, buy it today! Sounds great, works out of the box, and you can do fully...

    Native Access updated and left me unable to add library

    I was trying to add Impact Soundworks new Pedal Steel library. I opened Native Access (the only choice) and it updated itself. Unfortunately, it now insists on a Mac OS newer than mine, and it's a minefield to update my old computer. Does anyone know if Native Access can be successfully rolled...

    Thanks Frank-well, it helps in that it confirms that I've done everything you said and it hasn't worked :) I didn't see anything on the Impact Soundworks site that said anything about operating system, just said K5.7 or above, which I have. I'd be happy to update to 5.8.1 if necessary, but I...

    PEDAL STEEL by Impact Soundworks - Available NOW w/ intro pricing!

    ED-you see my folder (posted earlier in this thread). I did what Andrew suggested and moved files into the sample folder. I don't have the option of opening it or not-when NA has me navigate to the enclosing folder with the .nicnt, I can "cancel" or "open". When I "open" it takes me back to the...
