    Can you please explain, I don't get it. Thanks.

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Really interesting and detailed analytic comparison :) I was talking about Vienna Suite EQ as it's very similar to ReaEQ, a simpel EQ with no extra features. The main difference is the Q, way narrower in VS EQ, which allows to achieve a better result on undesired frequencies. That said, and to...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Yep, the first one is the right one, copying the audio to a new track, having the video track's gain turned down. Video's audio can be easily muted/soloed then. The second one is the one I called the 'annoying one', it's better and way safer to have the enlighted 'M' for mute status visible ;)...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Speaking for myself, no bashing intent. Reaper is an interesting and affordable DAW. I'm just pointing some weak features for postproduction use. Nothing more, nothing less ;-)

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Problem solved? Mmmm... I don't see how. Video is already checked (window opened) and docked here. Muting video track doesn' close video window, it actually mutes audio AND video, displaying a black screen thereby. Nothing to see with video window visible or not. It's been related and requested...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Ok, I knew there was still another boring feature, I missed it, sorry ;-) When importing a video, you don't get a dedicated video track but an audio track displaying the audio of the video. Never mind, it works. The only little problem is that if ever you mute the audio, whatever the track or...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Sure, I implemented a script to setup the nudge to + or - 1 frame (one for 25fps, another for 30fps) as it was not naturally available ;-) About nudging to recover the sync, it works as long as you didn't quit the snap mode meanwhile. If you did, good luck, game's over, for critical phase...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Actually it's a terrible feature when working with picture and for post. That means you can immediately loose the exact item start (and end) point. If ever you extend item snap disabled (assuming you had a safe 1 frame snap) and move the item then, you just loose the sync of this item. Just try...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    I conceide you're right, I'm just talking about ReaEQ which does the job, nothing more, actually a bit less. I'm mostly using Vienna Suite EQ which works quite similar, the difference is huge. Just had a look to one or two here and there, and the verbs then, ouch, no way for me. So you're...

    What is Reaper bad at?

    Reaper has some nice features I don't have in Cubase. It's rather time consuming to setup so as to get a desired graphic interface. Stock plugins are... I don't know how to say that, let's say very, extremely basic and awful. That said, not talking about midi I didn't use, it has a couple of...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    I understand what you're saying. Speaking for myself I try to have my setup quite up to date. I left Mac world a long time ago for several reasons: more freedom (it can have a time cost) and avoid to be obliged to some change or I can't update this or that. I don't go the automatic softwares...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    To clarify a bit: you won't lose your v6 licenses, it's the way it always worked. I still have my useless v4 & v5 licenses here. License is one thing, installing/working is another. That said, if it works like it always did you won't be able to have both versions installed on one computer nore...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    Yes, I think so. Having a v7 license doesn't 'kill' your v6/v5 licenses. If ever you wish to go back to, let's say VE Pro5 re-installation and use, you can. Your activation code is used for the e-Licenser which will add your upgrade version to the selected i-Licenser key. The day you install it...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    1st question: definitely NO. You can't even have VEpro communicate if you don't ever have the same 'update' of the same version (let's say 6) of the software installed on both computers while using a slave one. 2nd question: I guess YES, I think installing 6 uninstalls 5 (to be verified).

    VEPro 7 now available!

    Everything is anything but clear here. Are they promoting Epic Orchestra or Giant Taiko or VE Pro7? Looks like a sort of a weird cooking recipe... An old free bonus meal revisited, a pinch of salt and pepper from different banks, all this offered when preordering an unknown ingredient nobody...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    Hi Guy, they just deliver no info at all about VEpro7 itself. It's not a new orchestral bank but the very platform we're all working with. They're not holding a gun indeed, but the subject can stand for pretty much sensitive, at least, regarding everyone's workflow. SY Strings has been a...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    They are not talking at all about. It's the first time I see an announcement for a new product with not one single word about it. First argument is some 'free' renewed old bank most people don't care about.

    The 12 Horns Battle (Blind Test)

    The question about horns is the balance between the warm sound and the 'cuivré' intonation. - The version 1 sounds great, having a warm and balanced sound and great 'cuivré' too. - The 5 is closed, slightly more pinched and thinner. - The 3 sounds awful, thin, metallic and terribly pinched...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    This is the infinite debate. Whatever if the 4 horns are divisi, we'll never get an 'all together recorded' thing. So except for having some obliged monolithic horns or bones line, having separate instruments is great. That's why I bought the Vsl Dim Brass a couple of years ago. Not that happy...

    EW Strings Diamond missing articulations

    Hi there, Has anyone experienced loosing articulations ? Some have gone here, no way to find any help on EW site... I tried all I could with the Installation Center with no success, show directory, locate & reinstall, download & reinstall etc... Directory never changed, didn't change anything...

    Favorite action percussion?

    I mostly use Action Strikes. Two counterpoints: they are predefined loops, so limited choice in patterns, and they're eating a huge amount of ressources. I had to transfer them to my slave VEP to avoid CPU overloads. Damage is useful too but it needs some eq. The initial eq is outrageous (mid...

    MIDI Control Surfaces (2017)

    Not sure it will help anyone but just to say, I'm using my DM2k to record the CC automation. It has been a quite long search but I finally figured out the setup. Compared to my ZeroSLMkII, it's been incredibly more efficient and fast. Again, the User Remote faders are not motorized but if...

    Hollywood Strings vs some of the more recent string libraries

    Thank you John, I'll have a try. About the KS point, I'm using Cubase Expression maps, one track for short patches, one for long ones. It allows to go to polyphonic in one click for legato i.e.

    Hollywood Strings vs some of the more recent string libraries

    I know HS is very popular around here. Great and wide sound. But using legato, which I use every time, can be extremely time consuming and boring. I think we can forget about quantizing concept there ! I have to edit quite note by note to have it play more or less in the beat, or let's better...

    Omnisphere 2 Released with more sounds. :-)

    I didn't try Omnisphere 2 directly in Cubase for now. All I can say is that it's totally unusable in VEpro here. Almost every sounds browsing and search has been a waste of time. BTW it just ended up with not loading sounds anymore... Any selection in browser's category takes seconds. Loading...

    Omnisphere 2 Released with more sounds. :-)

    Board and processors are not the very last ones but they're ok I guess. 2xXeon E5520, 48Go RAM. All SSD disks including the C-system one. W7-64bit. Omnisphere shares one of 5 VEpro instances with Engine. Maybe I'll try to have separate instances for both to see what happens. VEpro PC works as...

    Omnisphere 2 Released with more sounds. :-)

    I rarely post my impressions right away, generally waiting for a while I have the instrument in hands but... already regret having updated to O2. Two days working and I didn't use one single sound with. Omnisphere in VEpro. Desperately slow. Waiting 10s to hear a sound, that's totally boring...

    Who still uses Vienna Suite as their main orch plugins (at least some of them)?

    Vienna Suite became my main plug suite since it's has been released and it replaced most plugs I used before. I've been amazed by the musicality of the eq at that time. It was the first time I felt close to a hardware... Many valuable and more sophisticated plugins have been released since...

    Komplete 10 and new Kontrol Keyboards (released)

    Hi Guy, that's the first question I had in mind when looking to the "cross-product" browsing. I was guessing it should take a while and reminds me Omnisphere painful and time wasting browsing. And I agree with your comment about tagging. It looks like Maschine's one which is very poor and I...
