    Tweaking Windows 10 for Music Production (2019)

    I did have a go at setting my BIOS like this and using the High Performance/Ultimate Performance modes. Waves SoundGrid Studio does not like Ultimate Performance and does not recognise it as correct (pop-up on every startup) and my processor does not move smoothly between clock-speeds either...

    IMac Pro or HP Z4?

    That is 95% the case, because you also do not get the best of both worlds for two reasons: 1. Performance of Apple machines is not always equivalent or better on Windows, due to under-clocked CPUs and software trickery in macOS to make the system run cooler and quieter 2. Right now there is a...

    AMD working on a 64/128 Beast for TR4

    Posted my latest thoughts elsewhere relating to AMD: The more I think about this, plus the growing number of benchmarks and real-world tests that are being done on the two platforms.... I wonder if the perfect Composing Setup would be an Intel DAW Machine and AMD VE Pro Slave(s) You would have...

    Ryzen 3000 Vs I9 9900K for music production

    I am either waiting for the 3950X or getting a top-end i9 and building a dual-boot Hack and Windows 10 1903 monster :)

    Rethinking my CPU

    Interesting how you mention alternative purposes for the machines. I will be using my main machine for work too, so virtualisation for Exchange environments, Domain building and testing etc. So it will need to be awesome for Audio and very high up for other tasks too :)

    Rethinking my CPU

    I think part of it was considering the lower price of AMD, you could likely get a high-end CPU and a mobo for the price of an i9 9980XE ;)

    Cubase 10.30 Update

    So we get faster loading times and project handling... but we lose something valuable too Hahaha, such is the world of software development :rolleyes:

    Switch from Mac to PC; Logic X to Cubase Pro 10

    Well there is a lot to go through here... Currently talking to you from my 2012 Mac Pro 12-Core. But also having made the leap to go to Windows with Cubase Pro I have some experience in this. Really consider what you want the machine to do, because you want to build something to last and...

    According to the new boards I have checked out from Computex, some of the X570 motherboards are shipping with TB3 So the Zen2 chips must have it

    Are there any alternatives to Metagrid?

    Al Yeah, I have two Dell U2515H displays and they are really nice. So a 2418HT would go quite nicely in my setup :) My only head scratching exercise is figuring out how to make space for a KK49 MKI and a 24” touchscreen, and a mouse and keyboard on the same desk.

    Buy new Mac Mini vs upgrade Thinkpad X1E

    Do you keep the Cubase option though? For the tests I have done on Cubase Pro 9,9.5 and 10 the performance is a good deal less than on Windows. So I cannot justify spending the same £400 on a software that is poor on one platform and great on another. I am right there with you on the want for...

    Best GPU for Real Time Audio - Rethinking Nvidia

    The only issue here (btw I have a RX580 myself) is that I have read you are meant to leave Latency Mon running for a good hour or so, so even though your results show low timings I would run it for the proper time to get the honest readings over a consistent period.

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    It is important to note that there is a cut-off time on using those installers though. I cannot remember what it is, but if the timestamp on the installer is too many years behind, it will not work anymore and you will need to download a fresh copy

    Are there any alternatives to Metagrid?

    Does this mean that Composer Tools Pro can also be run on an Android tablet? Since Lemur is Android and iOS? I currently have Lemur on my iPad 5th Gen, but trying to leave Apple behind now as the screens are just so small and so expensive for anything remotely bigger :/
  26. Shad0wLandsUK

    Are there any alternatives to Metagrid?

    How come you were running 1.5? You mean the Lemur version... Because the iPad version is still on 1.4.6, rather mine is anyway :/

    Open Stage Control (Tutorial) - An alternative to Lemur and TouchOSC

    I have setup this up on my machine again and I am running into some issues with regards to the 'midi router settings'. You explain that if you are only using one machine you need loopmidi, so I have that, but I do not see where you explain how to configure it for one machine :/ Or does this not...

    Lemur/CTP in Cubase - Sending CC Help

    How do you have your expression map setup? Could you supply some screenshots of the setup. Are you using instrument tracks or racks? Because the setup is different for them. Also there is an Expression Maps converter app for CTP which I think is for what you are having issues with...

    That was the one I was trying to remember. When I tried it the way I thought it was, I ended up with 16 tracks with no output!! o_O ;)

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    My gosh, I remember when I tried to rack my brains about how this all works 3 years ago... Things have not changed it seems. So I am trying to work out the best way to get this to work that is closest to Cubase, for instance. I have Composer Tools Pro to manage my keyswitches and for that I am...

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    Hey man, do you by any chance remember how to move your Instrument tracks to another Layer in the Environment window? Say I wanted layers below the Mixer Layer like: 01 WIND SECTION 02 BRASS SECTION 03 PERC SECTION etc.

    Have VSL made any new templates? Or are these the old templates they were issuing out before?

    LogicPro + VEP and AU3

    I have not used the Environment at all for this. I simply created a Multiport 25 AU3 VE Pro track and selected to have 5 multi-timbral tracks included. I set the first track to MIDI Channel All and Port 1, then I just changed the ports of the other 4 channels. Only issue that in my mixer I only...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    I was referring to this button here: I was clicking it before with my Kontakt instance on the track and some patches loaded, however it was not duplicating the track with the Kontakt instance, only creating an empty channel strip. Tried deleting and repeating with the same results. Now on...

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update

    I am currently running on 10.14.5 and I am noticing things are very buggy too. -Logic reset my layout to default even after setting it User Defaults -Sometimes the track will respond to the plugin and other times it will not So there are certainly signs of early tweaks needed I would say

    Logic Pro 10.4.5 Update
