    East West Strings Gold - How to get consistent volume across patches?

    You can try changing the "volume knob" inside Play itself to balance the relative loudness-relationships between articulations, and/or with a Gain plugin on the articulation audio return channels (that is if I understand you correctly, and that each one is different). If you want to control...

    To transcribe or not to?

    "Slow and with much guessing" is how everyone starts off their transcription abilities. It's the repeated mistakes that train you how to be quicker and more accurate! Why not transcribe straight onto paper? Use your DAW to check the sounds, but there is something to be said about internalizing...

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    Not in 10.4.5 they weren't - Thus, the new bug fix: So that officially takes care of that issue. Are there any other issues that anybody has noticed?

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    VEP Update 7.0.851 from July 3 fixed the AU3/audio ports bug. Does this fix the whole AU3 template thing? Or were there other problems noticed?

    I am desperate help needed - crackles all the time with VEP and Logic

    That is the buffer multiplier. Experiment with greater and smaller sizes. This takes your DAW's buffer (in this case, 512) and multiplies it anywhere from 0-4 (so, 0/512/1024/1536/2048), which is then the additional buffer VEP uses to process whatever it's holding. I've found that it helps to...

    Yes, complexity alone does nothing. Where Williams's true strength is is his absolute control of that complexity.

    Articulation maps vs. template balancing

    It's also quite possible to create custom macros in the Environment to do the same thing, and I'm not sure that this is limited by any bugs. ::edit:: I should add: ...in conjunction with the articulation sets commands. It's a powerful combination!

    Logic Sudden Crash getting a Bit Desperate ! Help !

    Took a look here. Some more questions: - What audio file format is the audio that you are importing? - Does this happen on all projects with many tracks, or only a few/one?

    Removing unused items from the "not installed" section of Native Access

    AFAIK you should be able to remove items from NA by (if you're on a Mac) going into your user library's Preferences and deleting whichever com.native-instruments.Unwanted Libraries.plist you have.

    A small gift to Logic & Wavestation users

    Huge MIDI Input delay when adding plug-in in Logic

    It’s a mastering plugin, so it’s going to have a good bit of look-ahead to do what it needs to do. This look-ahead is latency. If you mouse over the plugin instance you will see how much latency it is adding. Only way to really deal with it is to not use it the way you’re using it and reserve...

    Why has it been a decade and a half...

    I have nothing against commercial libraries, and I think that many developers are doing a fine job of locating needs. Most of this is just curiosity! But I'm happy to foment discussion on it - I wouldn't mind seeing another one :)

    Why has it been a decade and a half...

    ...since VI-Control members (or at least a portion of them) have banded together to create a bespoke sample library? I can't find anything since the VI-PRO project of this forum's early days! Is it too expensive? Do commercial libraries fill the gap well enough now? What's the deal? :geek:

    ...I'd like to build an EXS24-only template a la @charlieclouser to take advantage of the "VEP preserved/decoupled"-like behavior EXS can do. I don't mind simplicity and things like lack of mic positions and true legato, as long as it sounds good and musical. What is the best option for doing...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    Sure, but I’m talking about when playing things in. Both channels (with their respective plugins) are off, but then only one works, when performing a part with the option enabled (thus making them both "necessary for playback"). That seems like a bug to me.

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    There is a funny bug I've been noticing; I wonder if anybody else has experienced this?

    Video Game Music: Micro Loops!

    As a child of early 1990, I love the sound of fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-generation video game music (basically everything from the Genesis and SNES through the Gamecube and PS2). I've been slowly collecting ROMplers of the era and have been using them to build a playlist of what I call "micro...

    Logic sending RPN to VEP on initialization?

    Hi, It seems that when I have a VEP template full of, say, Kontakt, and open up a Logic project built to connect to that template, Logic sends RPNs to each and every MIDI channel. I assume this is just a "check" or a "reset to init" sort of message, and normally it's fine - from watching the...

    VEPro 7 now available!

    Quick question: I’m building a clone of a rig that needs to stay on VEP 6 for now. VEP 7 is the only license available I can find to buy. Would a VEP 7 license allow use of the VEP 6 installation, or am I out of luck?

    Understanding Synths for a classical musician

    What's the difference between an "old circuit" and a wooden box with taut entrails? Or a wooden tube with holes in it? Or a wooden hoop with taut skin? Pleasing, useful, and satisfying sounds can come from anywhere, no matter how simple or old.

    All right, so there are a decent amount of smaller strings libraries. What about Brass? Woodwinds? Percussion? Etc.? It's not just about having a single instrument; Hollywood Brass's "Solo Trumpet" is not going to work as a chamber-style Solo Trumpet without some mixing wizardry. Here's...

    "Chamber" Libraries
