    Recent Surprises

    Dune 3. Thought it was just for the EDM crowd. Most badass sounding soft synth I’ve found yet. Yes, like hardware good! Hive 2 was a lot better than I would have expected, and I expected a lot PhasePlant. Thought it was a gimmic just to sell you snap-ins. But Jesus, possibilities are endless...

    Once Great, Now Unavailable Libraries?

    Not an instrument but Wizzoverb W2 and W5 are my favorite reverbs to this day. Gone! Activation servers aren’t even alive anymore.

    Your favorite "go to" patches

    The “Init” patch.:sneaky: Oddly, it’s on most of my vst instruments. (Only MOSTLY being a smart ass). I like to roll my own patches. Also,Long Flautando from Spitfire Symphonic Strings and the Ensemble String patch from Tundra.

    MUSIC: What are you listening to ? ?

    Jon Anderson, Ian Anderson (From Jethro Tull), Billy Cobham, Chick Corea, Jean Luc Ponty and many others on this album. It’s just nuts! Prog with jazz players! There’s no link to the track “Come Up” but it’s the perfect mix of jazz and prog.

    Moving away from Ableton (or am I?)

    I have developed a strange workflow. I boot up Ableton when I’m just screwing around on the piano. I use the capture midi thing if I accidentally play something cool. Then I move it to Studio One and rewire Ableton and screw around with the idea some more . Then if the idea is cool and getting...

    Help! I can’t make myself use loops!

    Wow. Thank you all so much for your thoughtful input. Interestingly as I was reading your responses, I realized a few things. I think my reluctance to use loops may be limited to things that I can’t actually play. For example, any drum loop I’ve ever heard, I could probably think of and perform...

    Help! I can’t make myself use loops!

    Please don’t think I am being judgmental. I have absolutely no right to be. Many if not most professional musicians use loops these days and there is an art to assembling them into an original and artistically legitimate work. I was just emailed a rather funny add from Native Instruments...

    Studio One users, how do you find S1 for big orchestral projects?

    As a former Sonar refugee myself, I usually start to compose and arrange in Studio One. If the thing gets too heavy I just port it to Cubase. A lot of CPU intensive stuff I have running in VE pro anyway and have track templates of those in both so it’s just a matter of transferring the midi...

    Waves - Worst Installation & Activation Ever

    I got maybe hundreds of waves plugs. The shell sometimes works with my daws and ve pro. Sometimes not after a waves update. Not going to shell out the ridiculous upgrade fee. They basically give away their plugins on the cheap then kill you with the update plan to maybe keep it working. Screw...

    What did you buy from Spitfire's Wishlist?

    He’s probably on 6. Also note that I tried loading the patches but they won’t work in the pro edition (Technically a different library).

    What did you buy from Spitfire's Wishlist?

    Studio Strings Professional and the new Choir. Kinda surprised with the Studio Strings Professional. Didn’t think I needed yet another string library (especially one that doesn’t seem to have an ensemble patch), but I rolled my own multi and am very happy. You can be intimate or epic and the...

    Now that Trump is an unindicted co-conspirator....

    Democracy may not be a religion, but a Jeffersonian Democracy is my only religion. Out founders didn’t expect it to last 50 years and they NEVER would have believed it could work with 300 million people. But Jeffersonian Democracy with rule of law has done pretty well despite vast changes. It...

    Your best 2018 purchase?

    Roland TD17 KVX with Superior drummer 3 and the Prog Rock SDX. My wife made me get it. Thought I would be to old to get my chops back. Coming along. Mapping the kit to Hans Zimmer percussion and Heavyocity’s Damage has been a blast. No more finger drumming for me. :) Plus I play super-imposed 7...

    Cubase 10

    I’d settle for removing the daylight savings time vst rescan and fixing the browser,media bay etc and making it easier on the eyes. Oh and maybe editable frozen tracks like studio one.

    Tried the new NI S88 Mark 2. Keyboard still doesn't feel good.

    Ah. I wondered what that little keyboard icon was for. It’s weird, I had tracks in VE pro that worked with browser/ light guide etc. just fine when I brought them up. Others didn’t. I’ll just click the keyboard icon and see what happens. THanks for that.

    Tried the new NI S88 Mark 2. Keyboard still doesn't feel good.

    Yup. Got mine. Feels mushy. But being the nutcase that I am, I like the mush! I think this is the first keyboard I’ve had with aftertouch so I’m jazzed about that. Big screens are great (I’m old and blind now even though I use a 47 inch display.). Works great with Cubase. Very inconsistent and...

    Heavyocity Novo Pack 03 Synthetic Strings

    Novo and the other packs were sampled strings meant to sound like hybrid synths. This one is sampled synths meant to sound like hybrid strings. Or something like that. :P Cool stuff though. :grin:

    Kontakt 6!

    You might be right ED but both of those libraries use custom preset locations in their scripts which I think are only supported by player compatible libraries now. Just a thought... Have you tried either of those libraries in K6? Again, thanks for all your help ED:) EDIT: I should clarify...

    I notice Sample Logic Expeditions and Arpology Cinematic seem to be Kontakt 6 casualties (i.e. they don’t work in Kontakt 6). Anybody found any others?

    Spitfire Earth Edna...Thoughts?

    I’d like to add that EDNA is about the most bad ass engine you can throw your own samples in (through Kontakt editing of course).

    Spitfire Earth Edna...Thoughts?

    I had to use an NI unreg tool from Native Instruments (somewhere on the ni site I think..I’m away from my computer now). Then just re-install using native access. You don’t need to delete or download anything new, just enter the serial and locate the library on your HD. Then it shows up in KK.

    J.S. Bach Appreciation Thread

    Dark Matter vs Dark Matter 2

    Have you tried a batch re-save? Don’t. Unless you know how. But that might do it. Still, six convolution engines requires a bit of power but I’ve never had any issues. Not a big cpu hog on my system. In fact, I kicked the default voices up to 128 with no problems or issues.

    Dark Matter vs Dark Matter 2

    This is indeed what they did with the new Alchemist Cinematic Textures 2. It comes with two versions, One has the old presets, and the other one is all new. The issue I think is that Dark Matter 1 snapshots are not compatible with the newer engine. It’s not a big deal really. I just made a lot...

    Dark Matter vs Dark Matter 2

    Well, Dark Matter 2 contains all the samples from Dark Matter 1 plus about 15gb of new samples and a better engine. So yes DM2 is better than DM1. That beings said, I like a lot of the presets better from Dark Matter 1 (plus the ones I made) so I’m glad I have both. Also, DM2 has 6 layers while...

    50% off cinemorphx - epic insanity!!!

    I paid full price for CinemorphX and Morphestra 2. No regrets - love/use them both. Wouldn't get rid of either. Same engine/idea but different samples. just double the fun. A no brainer at this price imo.
