    No worries. Glad to have helped.

    Best Harp Library

    I do it in Cubase. I use the Midi insert called 'Midi Modifiers' with the Vel. Comp. (Velocity Compression) to 3/4. Play around with what works best for you. This helps to limit the higher velocity 'attacky' notes and enables you to tweak your playing style to suit your controller keyboard...

    Best Harp Library

    If you scale the velocity lower (midi transform in real-time) it helps the SF harp enormously

    How Good: Fabfilter Pro-R For Orchestra?

    Love the Pro-R GUI and workflow but unfortunately it doesn’t do realistic spaces like Nimbus or R4 or the Lexi reverbs for me. Nor is it attempting to either I suspect. I dearly wanted to love it too as I’m a massive fan of pro-q, c and mb. Ymmv of course.

    PC specs for lowest possible latency?

    @Nathanael Iversen whats your configuration and setup between master and slaves. Do you spread most of your instruments to your slaves?

    PC specs for lowest possible latency?

    Thanks Nathan I know that NUCs typically don’t have the same CPU grunt but if all they are doing is streaming they wouldn’t need to I expect. I figure, instead of upgrading my Master comp, for the same price I could get 2 or 3 NUCs, offload all VST instruments, drop my latency and delay...

    PC specs for lowest possible latency?

    I run a large and demanding orchestral template hosted in VEP alongside Cubase on my master computer. A good chunk of my ASIO headroom is consumed by simply connecting to each VEP instance. (As an experiment for those running a similar sized template, watch the Cubase ASIO meter drop as you...

    VSTBuzz: 62% off “Tantra” VST Plugin by Dmitry Sches - Normally €65 now €24.99!

    It’s not that you weren’t helpful. You were. It’s that you were snarky while doing it No hard feelings here. I’ve just purchased Tantra on sale. Will decide about the expansion packs (which are not on sale) once I’ve had the chance to play

    VSTBuzz: 62% off “Tantra” VST Plugin by Dmitry Sches - Normally €65 now €24.99!

    I’d rather ask end-users how worthwhile Dmitry’s expansion pack is rather than ask the creator of the pack who, not unreasonably, has a vested interest in selling his product. Just sayin’

    VSTBuzz: 62% off “Tantra” VST Plugin by Dmitry Sches - Normally €65 now €24.99!

    I know it’s already been asked but would anyone else care to chime in as to whether the expansion pack is worth the extra?

    PCM Native Reverb Bundle $ 234.87

    Still sounds great. There is a reason it’s not always on special. And as said above, it’s comparatively light on the CPU which is a huge bonus

    SSL Native Bus Compressor on special - half price

    My fave bus compressor is half price to coincide with new release. Just a heads up. (I have no affiliation with the company - in fact I'm still grumpy that they won't let me upgrade from v4 to v6 - just a fan of the compressor)

    Show me your d...esk

    My approach was to have the computer keyboard and mouse in front of the music keyboard. On the one desk. I had to drop the desk height a little so that my arms were more or less at 90 degrees when typing / mousing. My Aeron chair has forward tilt when I’m playing piano which helps. It’s not...

    2CAudio Precedence spatialization plug - opinions

    This has just been released. I’m interested in opinions, especially from people who have other positioning plug-ins like SPAT, VSS or even the new SP2016 with the positioning slider, that sort of thing. Cheers

    What Types of Libraries Need the Speed of an SSD Most?

    Load times would be down the bottom of the list for me. Reducing RAM usage and pushing the voice count higher would be higher up. Does anyone know if it makes any difference to poorly scripted libraries or cpu hungry libs? Not in terms of load times but does the ssd reduce any burden in this...

    Is cluster size even a thing anymore?

    Sometimes I wonder in the majority of the tweaks we still do are legacy windows XP tweaks and no longer relevant. Looks like cluster size is arguably in this category. Thanks to you both

    Is cluster size even a thing anymore?

    Just setting up a new Samsung 860 2TB SSD for streaming samples (not OS) GPT vs MBR? (I went GPT) Cluster size? 4kb or 64kb? Or is the whole cluster size thing very 'last decade' or no longer relevant for SSDs?

    Thanks for the vid Am I right in thinking that without an MPE controller there is no way to independently control parameters (pitch bend, cc1, cc11 etc) for more than one note at a time? Or put another way, all notes you play are affected at once? B

    Anyone install Waves plugins since the V10 upgrade?

    In case this helps anyone, I see that Waves have posted a script to help those who wish to run v9 and v10 plug-ins at the same time. I haven’t tested it yet but here is a post from Yotam (Waves) at Gearslutz “Guys, FYI at this time - we've uploaded an script called "V9-V10 Organizer" for...

    Auras - reviews

    Can those that have used it (or perhaps slate and ash) perhaps comment further on the CPU usage? I know people will say that the CPU usage is worth it but with a fully loaded template I can’t afford to be swallowing up 5% of my CPU per patch no matter how great it sounds. This is the reason I...

    Spitfire kitchenware - metal and glass

    Full marks to Spitfire. Because the sample content is the same in the relaunched product as my original 2 Producer Packs the new release was made available in my download account. Perhaps I just got lost in the system

    SPITFIRE - Announcing Spitfire Chamber Strings Professional
