    What will I lose if I 'crossgrade' from Cubase Pro 9.5 to Nuendo?

    If i understood the thing correctly, you'll loose the ability to upgrade cubase in the future, and you'll stick with nuendo to the grave !

    Maybe tomorrow we'll know... Who knows ? :) Anyway with its b-side this one is moebius's band, challenging any analysis. It's perfect as it is and further invstigation can only kill the magic.

    CPU Spikes

    In january i built a new computer and experienced some awfull problems despite it beeing a very reasonable build (64gig ram, i7 8700k, m2 & ssds). I tried everything, spent hours and hours trying to improve, but in the end what realy made a big difference was this little free soft called cpu...

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    Back to thread, maybe ? I'm surprised there's no mention on spitfire's website of the size of the library, and no "this promo price ends on...". Maybe it was in a mail they sent (i'm not on the mailing list) ?

    Ah ah ! Like stated by @Gerbil, it would be a bit of a stretch (ah !) and very very much of a superlative ! :)

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    You're spot on ! :) I frequently translate idiomatics on the go, but as we have in france a wide variety of funny expressions like "third leg", i'm surprised that you're surprised. (To be honest, "i need this like i need a thirst leg" is the polite version of "i need this like i need a second...

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    Does anyone know when the promo price ends ? Despite the spitfire's propensity of overusing superlatives in their walkthrough, i have to say the tone of this library is delighfull. I need a new brass library like a third leg, but damn, this one sound good !

    Performance Samples: Solos of the Sea

    Lol. That's true : you won't spend hours massaging your ccs and tweaking the gui. Very hit or miss.

    Performance Samples: Solos of the Sea

    No, but it's very natural sounding and not as present as in the freebie (which is really great for a freebie, imo).

    Jeez... it's almost better than violin A !

    Performance Samples: Solos of the Sea

    In solo of the sea violin, you feel the 140ms delay when you play on the keyboard, so the freebie seems more tight. But the playability justify the difference in cost, imo.

    Plugin Alliance plugs constantly crashing Reaper. Anyone else having this problem?

    It will be of little/no help, i'm afraid (cubase 9.5/w10 here), but i had crazy cpu spikes with pluginalliance plugs until i authorized them. So the problem is very likely on the PA side... For the record, their authorization scheme seems to be based on motherboard as an update of my bios...

    M-Audio Oxygen 88 vs. Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol S88

    Yes, it is (sparingly) affected. But you can use the midi connection to circumvent the problem (if you have midi ports on your audio card/computer).

    Auras - reviews

    Looks like it's randomizing the sound sources and the reverb sends. But the ability to choose the target and the amount of randomization should be even better (by the way, it may be the key between a useless and a good random). As i don't own Auras yet, i was not aware of this random/shuffle...

    Mixing with reverb dillema

    Well, if it's part of the sound, keep it. There's no "bad reverb" in this situation. Print to audio and build upon (at least that's what i do, but i'm far to be hans zimmer, hehe) !

    M2 nvme vs sata

    Maybe with thunderbolt you'll benefit from a better grounding isolation, which is sometimes a serious problem with usb. I live in a old house with no grounding at all and with usb soundcards, my dp4s ensoniq are buzzing like hell (or like a fridge, to quote tom york :)).

    Auras - reviews

    I have to say this library is the best advertisement for the seaboard i've ever heard. No doubt we'll hear those sounds in many many movies in the forthcoming months. (No doubt many, including me, have now a seaboard block on their to buy list just for the pleasure to play this beauty). Sounds...

    Why would you go for thunderbolt when you already have usb3 & sata (and sata extensions via pcie adapters) ? I built a new computer a few months ago with a asus z370 prime and it comes with a thunderbolt port, but i came to the conclusion usb3/sata were better options for external...

    Spaces or Seventh Heaven

    Hmm... seems to me they're both ilok and both IRs. Space is real spaces IRs and 7th heaven is bricasti IRs, which like said by gerhard is an algorythmic unit, not a real space. Both very very good and very cheap for their quality.
