    Orange Tree?

    Ha...you mean sarcasm in the form of a joke...you are right...I am so literal sometimes! Once a friend and I were leaving a theater after watching some obviously stupid movie and he said "That was a really really really great film." I looked at him and said, "You have GOT to be kidding me man...

    Orange Tree?

    If you read the OP, I think they were inexperienced and wanted to know more about the quality and playability. It is easy to understand when you are familiar with a particular workflow. All the quality in the world does not always translate to familiarity/usability/playability with your workflow.

    Orange Tree?

    Just to comment on Texas Twang...it is lovely and fits the Telecaster bill just right. While I would love to see a Jaguar done, this will fill in the hole till Greg decides to do one.

    Orange Tree Samples 2019 Group Buy - NOW 60% OFF!!

    One of the areas where it excels is in discounts on bundles. He already offers great prices when new products come out, a loyalty discount if you will, but takes it even further on events like this. Just awesome. And to think these are high quality libraries to boot!

    Sonokinetic Capriccio problem

    If you are using the 24 bit samples, the engine can really be a hog. You are also playing it live. When using it, I tend to play in what I want and then "fix" the MIDI to do what it is SUPPOSED to do after the fact...in other words, these products are not meant for live performances (unless of...

    Hip-Hop Creator by Realitone/Mike Greene

    Yea he just touched a nerve in you... nothing more. The comment was benign. Still I am not sure that we should be sensitive with a person's likes and dislikes, ESPECIALLY when it comes to music (or women, or food, or alcohol choices, etc.). However, that seems to be a common symptom and none...

    Steinberg NUENDO sale up to 70% off

    Nuendo 11 may not come out till November/December of 2020 if they keep up with Cubase. I only expect Cubase to go to 10.5 this December, and Nuendo usually offers free ".x" upgrades.

    Steinberg NUENDO sale up to 70% off

    I believe I read from a rep on their forums that in celebration of Nuendo 10, they were keeping the current (the new price drop) pricing arrangement "for the life of Nuendo 10, till the next major update". So I would imagine that when Nuendo 11 is released we will be back to regular (almost...

    It is priced at its lowest point. My understanding is that it will remain at the current price point until the next release when anything can happen (possibly back up to its normal range?).

    Actually you can get really great deals on the singles second hand. For anyone wanting buy them, I see stuff at more than 50% especially around sales like this or most likely when a new version of Komplete is released. In fact with K13UCE hits someone will get Noire really cheap from me no...

    Seeking views on NI Symphony Series & Brass

    Like all libraries, they are definitely a matter of taste. I have used them in many things but would not call them my goto's. I have the K12CE so I have pretty much everything. Like any library out there, each segment has strengths and weaknesses...and even that would be a matter of opinion...

    Why so much hate against USB security dongles (like iLok and Steinberg key)

    I am unaware of any company that demands a USB slot to itself. My eLicenser has products from at least 6 or 7 different companies, and my iLok maybe 15 different companies. With over 200 products combined between the two, it made trading computers a year a go very easy. There will always be...

    Free Kontakt player high CPU when playing one note 30%-99%

    The SSD is likely the issue...but since much of it loads into RAM I was concerned about which libraries. Have you tried moving a library to you other drive and loading from there to see if it makes a difference. Let us know what you have tried to do to rectify this so you do not get a ton of...

    Free Kontakt player high CPU when playing one note 30%-99%

    I am not worried about your specs, but am curious about what sound or library you loaded. There are many libraries that are CPU hungry because of the scripting in Kontakt.

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?

    I am surprised to not see some of the obvious things from the last several years that have become staples. Metropolis Ark 1 & 2 would come to mind, along with some hybrid tools such as Alpha & Bravo. Also the Eduardo Tarilonte products (ERA series, etc) come to mind. Since you mentioned...

    Does anyone actually like or use phrase based orchestral libraries?

    I both like and use phrase based orchestral libraries. They are not the core, source of inspiration (though I feel they can inspire), or any substantial part of any of my arrangements. However, they have given substance to a sparse track that needed it. They have given a nice bed frame to a...

    What features are you missing in Nuendo 10 that Cubase 10 had? I find the flow identical...even the extra content is included in Nuendo 10. Nothing missing. I did note that the release version is the same as Cubase. This makes me think that they are now in sync and we can expect maintenance...

    Steinberg NUENDO sale up to 70% off

    To my knowledge the only element delayed will be ARA support. My guess is it will fall a little later this year based on looking back at their .x releases for Nuendo. In other words ARA will appear in Nuendo 10.1, instead of a smaller maintenance release. But I am speculating based on...

    Moving away from Ableton (or am I?)

    For the most part I cut my teeth in Cubase VST 32. When Reason came out I loved some of that style of workflow for certain things, and the fact that I could use ReWire was awesome. I have stayed with Cubase through the years, and have now moved to Nuendo. When Ableton Live first hit, it was...

    With the Nuendo 10, it appears they have included all the updates to the plugins as they did in Cubase Pro 10 and will include the new ones they did there. Most of the additional plugins revolve around surround sound.

    Why does 'Crossgrade' mean different things?

    Nuendo is not an upgrade from Cubase. It is a different product in a different product line. Thus you are crossing from a music production station to a post production station. The fact that these products appear to be nearly identical is where the challenge comes in for some. Many do not...

    Which Felt Piano should I get?!

    Una Corda is lovely. It can do a great many things. However, Noire really offers more options that can get really lavish. I love the sound and tone of Noire. Una Corda is a thinner sound overall.

    Nuendo skipping notes/brief freeze while recording midi

    Thank you for all of the replies. I will be testing more over the next few days. The thing that bit me was a deadline for a project that passed, and was merely a timestamp (thank you). So I have more time but was getting massive mental gridlock every time a note failed to play or worse yet...

    Nuendo skipping notes/brief freeze while recording midi

    I agree. Also I am going to continue to test things. I have not had a cable issue in the past, and this was not immediately apparent in Cubase, but that means nothing...computers...always a thing.

    Ok. So I disabled my Ethernet adapter...no change. Then I unplugged the cable. Recorded and played for an hour with no drops or stuck notes. Strange as I would have thought simply disabling the adapter would have the same effect. Hmmm. Now what? Ha. This computer is blocked from the...

    Yes there are clearly issues that I have had, and I am seriously considering a new interface this year. It might just be time for me to bite that bullet.

    Nuendo skipping notes/brief freeze while recording midi

    Thank you again for your input. I actually am facing the same issue even with ASIO Guard enabled. What it is starting to feel like reminds me of the old IRQ conflict days. It is like maybe something on USB is being called and taking too long to respond. Just strange. Will keep digging.

    Nuendo skipping notes/brief freeze while recording midi

    Thank you for your answer. ASIO Guard was off. I would like to add that this is happening with only one track in the project. I could run 30+ instances of Kontact in Cubase 10 on this system without even budging my meter...with ASIO Guard off. Now I have turned it on. And yes it actually...

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

    I mean on the surface it would sound like a good business strategy, but even on their own forums they have encouraged users who find no use for Nuendo to NOT crossgrade. This is NOT a crossgrade sale. This is a Nuendo sale, that just so happens to include a crossgrade from Cubase in the sale...

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

    Cubase licenses run previous versions of Cubase. Nuendo licenses run previous version of Nuendo...but they never cross paths. A Nuendo license cannot run Cubase or vice versa.
