    Cubase Midi/Audio cut issue

    nah unfortunately it cuts out under any circumstances. I can open up a new project with 1 instrument track and 1 midi track, the instrument will cut out immediately when switching from it to the midi :( Thanks for the suggestions though.

    Cubase Midi/Audio cut issue

    ASIO guard was the first thing I checked, unfortunately not the cause. I've always had it switched off. The difference between this and the ASIO guard issue is that - for me at least - the ASIO guard made everything lag heavily where as this issue is just the audio dropping out as soon as...

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    If I was working in the industry it wouldn't be such an issue for me (unless of course my clients weren't happy with my productivity). As I mentioned above, it's more that it's taking me longer and longer to establish my business.

    Cubase Midi/Audio cut issue

    Hey, After the latest update I am having this issue where midi tracks sound will cut out if I deselect it. It's only for a moment but it disrupts (cuts out) ANY form of playback. Any ideas why this is happening??

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    I'm getting there... but my slow writing and day job really make me not well suited to library work I think. I'd love to be earning minimum wage doing anything music related (composing, teaching, orchestrating, midi mock ups etc).

    Would doing "a song a day" help me speed up the composition process or just result in frustration?

    You're too kind. And I do really appreciate the support you've offered over the years! It really does help. There's 2 main reasons that my pace drives me a bit mad 1. Writing slow means the transition to full time composer (or just generally working in the industry) means a longer slog, and...

    Still much slower than I want to be. I've tried many approaches suggested here but nothing has worked definitively for me.

    I've had issues with sticky articulations with spitfire libraries also (using exp map). Definitely annoying. I usually have to reload...sometimes it works itself out

    Does Strezov Balkan Orchestra go on sale?

    I was thinking that but I like the 4 person intimate sound. Might have another look into it!

    Does Strezov Balkan Orchestra go on sale?

    God I wish I could get just the Choir from that library (not that the rest is bad but I just...really want that choir) Actually after re listening to the walkthrough I just want the whole thing

    Falling into madness

    very cool! I like it. I especially like the rhythmic figures and the climax does a good job of elevating everything without breaking the thematic set up. The repetition is not an issue for me.

    Thoughts on OT Berlin Strings

    gorgeous sounding and very useful. In many ways the recordings and performances are better than the main lib imo

    Thoughts on OT Berlin Strings

    Expansion A - I wouldn't purchase it in it's current state tbh. They're also not been "revived" so they aren't balanced against the new BWW (and the mics are different) The solo instruments are gorgeous (Though I have some issues with the flute)

    One thing I learnt about myself when composing these tracks was that I naturally jump around modes/mix/borrow very often. Oo fairy tale? Interesting. I'm still a bit concerned that the motif is a bit too relentless in the third track.

    Rates starting out as an Orchestrator?

    Hey all, Just wondering what sort of rates I should be aiming at starting out as an orchestrator? What's the best way to charge (format wise) - per minute, per bars? I've read conflicting ideas.

    [Real violin track added] Graceful, romantic orchestra (VSL Violin, woodwinds and CSS)

    The difference is huge! Beautiful track. The live Violin was well worth your time and no VST would get anywhere near this gorgeous performance.

    R8 my mix pretty please

    Thanks for the detailed feedback When you say boost mid-highs, is there certain instruments I should be doing this to?

    R8 my mix pretty please

    Thanks for all the tips (and compliments!). Ill get tweakin I've dropped that violin line down an octave. I tried to have it play another line after rather than drop down for the build up but I felt it took away from the final ascension. Hopefully the drop 8ve makes it less noticeable.

    Sounds great. For a reel though, I'd say every track runs a bit too long imo. You really want to showcase what you can do as quickly as possible.

    Orchestral Strings has more articulations than any other string library on the market FYI.

    The mid string sustains are particularly poor If there's no way to adjust the release times, maybe add some reverb to simulate the tail
