    Omnisphere 2.5 Hardware Synth Integration

    Love to tell the story that when Eric worked at Roland he showed the basic concept and idea to them for Atmosphere (pre onni) after looking at it everyone at Roland said what are we supposed to do with a piece of software ? Lol I've been using a Korg Nanokontrol for years to control Omni...

    I have no affiliation with this project but would recommend Caig Calilube (now called Faderlube) spray. You can usually find this at your local Guitar Center or order it online from Parts Express. Use the straw to spray into the fader mechanism and work the fader for a few days and that should...

    Reminder - Clean Your Fans

    Be careful of static electricity charge with vacuums, etc. Discharge any static if possible first. Take a photo of your connections. Take the cover off the Mac Pro. Take your Mac Pro outside or to a garage, etc. Use compressed air to thoroughly clean out all areas. One of these will pay for...

    Hope you guys have seen a good E.N.T. doctor. I hope things improve and are bearable for you who suffer through this. Knock on wood I've been lucky but always use hearing protection live since the mid 80s, never ever unless I have to just for a few seconds use headphones. When mixing I use a...

    An idea to address forum toxicity in VI-C

    Would not be the first time they left tbh. Maybe the 4th ? Christian's temper has gotten him taken off the help desk, and banished to Scotland. And to call the environment toxic here and give his camera a dirty look is a insult to all the members that spend time helping people and not flogging...

    An idea to address forum toxicity in VI-C

    Spitfire has had a forum with VERY low traffic for many years. I never seen Christian or Paul take much part in it tbh but I wish them luck if they give it another go. As for the vitriol around here this week, several members have mentioned to me if it continues they will not be active anymore...

    Soundflower For Mac (Sierra/HS)

    There is also Loopback but it's $99. OK it does load in Sierra after all. Look for the flower in your finder/menubar btw. If anyone gets it working let me know. Occasionally I have a need to route itunes into Logic.
