    VEPro 7 now available!

    I have had no issues with the upgrade. Possibly a reboot will help.

    Expressive String libraries

    Not every string library is the perfect library for every situation. I recently acquired two new strings libraries (new to me!) and did a mock up of John Williams' "Yoda's Theme". This is just the string part. This guy knows how to write for strings and this piece uses several different but...

    Awesome! Thank you.

    Cubase crash loading VSTs

    I will definitely give this a try. Looking at the Steinberg support documentation, it looks like preferences are spread over many xml files. This could take a while.

    Cubase crash loading VSTs

    Since this was a fresh install on my Mac it seems odd that default preferences would be problematic. However, the project I'm opening is an existing project that was used on my PC. I guess I can try to empty the project of all VIs and add them one-by-one to determine the issue. The project...

    Cubase crash loading VSTs

    After 30+ years running my DAWs on PCs I've moved over to Mac. Due to some memory issues with my current machine I decided to utilize my MacBook Pro even if it's only temporary. And since Cubase runs on both platforms this seemed like a reasonable interim solution. I am getting constant crashes...

    Racks or Tracks in Cubase 10, what IS the difference?

    Track instruments only respond to Port 1 from VEPro. Rack instruments respond to all ports.

    SA BHCT shenanigans (all members)

    I love this library! Very fun sounds. I created two cues to familiarize myself with its capabilities, both 100% BHCT. Trying to capture the essence of Bernard Herrmann.

    TouchOSC, Cubase, and Windows 10 Setup Issues

    So I made some progress. I did find the Studiomux user manual. It described setting up for TouchOSC. The Studiomux server running on the DAW machine installs a VST. I can load that up in a Cubase Instrument track, but it sees no connected devices. On the iPad, the Midimux app has two sections...

    Library music and writing what you want to write

    Since a majority of production music is used for television - especially Reality TV - I would suggest researching shows that use the kind of music you are interested in writing. The end credits typically list which production music library supplies the music for that show. These are the ones you...

    TouchOSC, Cubase, and Windows 10 Setup Issues

    Yes, I setup Midimux but still see no CC data coming in. Not sure if it needs to be routed thru loopMidi or some other midi host. So far nothing I've tried is working. I'm also unclear on setting up the correct ports in midimux. Instructions are almost non-existent.

    TouchOSC, Cubase, and Windows 10 Setup Issues

    Thanks for the suggestion. After a quick test I'm still running into issues, but it may have something to do with my system in general. I will have more time this weekend to research a solution.

    TouchOSC, Cubase, and Windows 10 Setup Issues

    I'm having a heck of a time getting my iPad to talk to Cubase using TouchOSC. With the TouchOSC Bridge I am able to send simple keyboard data (e.g. SPACEBAR). But Midi CC messages are ignored. I've setup loopMIDI to create virtual midi ports. These ports show up in Cubase but I can't figure out...

    8Dio memory usage in Kontakt/VEPro

    Wow! What a terrific explanation. I will give this a try. I had suspected that it might have something to do with mic positions, but when I selected various mics nothing changed in the reported memory usage. Thanks for making this video!

    8Dio memory usage in Kontakt/VEPro

    I’ve come upon an issue that I’ve never seen before. In setting up a template on a slave with VEPro, I’m seeing that 8Dio’s Century Strings and Century Strings Sordino are using approximately twice the amount of memory that it shows in Kontakt. I get that there is some overhead in any...

    Bernard Herrmann Composer Toolkit- Discussion

    I came across 3 instruments from the Individual Articulations folder that appear to be defective. They show zero bytes when loaded: e - Low Strings - Marcato Attack o - Trumpet and Xylophone - Short Muted (Octave) o - Trumpet and Xylophone - Short Muted Can anyone else confirm this is an...

    Native Instruments Thrill

    Ahh! That makes sense. I must have missed that tip in his walkthrough. Thanks!

    Native Instruments Thrill

    The instrument itself has an XY control, but it apparently doesn't send the midi messages to be recorded. At least I was unable to make it work. That's why I had to use an external app (TouchOSC) to do this. Seems like it should work and seems dumb if it doesn't. Maybe I'm the dumb one. At any...

    Native Instruments Thrill

    Yes, two CC numbers are being sent simultaneously, that's why an XY controller is necessary to make this work. You can send each CC value separately, but it's not as intuitive that way. You can program which two values are used. I loaded the 'simple' layout in TouchOSC and by default the XY...

    Native Instruments Thrill

    Thanks. I did end up getting TouchOSC working on my iPad. I just wish the plugin itself would have generated the midi messages with the mouse. Anyone without the ability to load the TouchOSC app on a mobile device will be out of luck.

    Native Instruments Thrill

    Is it not possible to record the XY movement from the instrument itself? Seems odd that you would be required to use an external MIDI controller to do this.

    Film Scoring Tempo Finder app for the iPad

    Thanks, Mike. At this time there are no plans on supporting those platforms. The Mac platform has also been requested. It's really a matter of resources to be able to port the app over. It's certainly not out of the question, but will probably take a while. You might want to look at picking...

    Film Scoring Tempo Finder app for the iPad

    Jay, Tempo Finder lets you either email the file to yourself, or you can connect to iTunes and get the file from the app's shared documents folder.

    Film Scoring Tempo Finder app for the iPad

    Let me clarify: the exported Midi file will contain the tempo, markers (including the locked SMPTE time and the descriptions), and all time signatures. I guess the answer depends on which DAW you're using. Since I use Sonar I can only tell how that software works. If I have created a...

    Film Scoring Tempo Finder app for the iPad

    Thanks for asking, Jay. This is not entirely out of the question. It will depend on the feedback I get on the app to justify the development time to build the Mac version. I hope for this product to grow. I will update everyone here if this happens. Cheers! Steve
