    Multiple DAW with VEP6

    Hi VI-Controllers, I've got a question about if you want to use multiple DAWs with VEP. So I'm using Logic and Cubase. But then there's the big debate on where Logic works better with single instances in VEP, while Cubase works better with less Instances and in some cases even just one big...

    First attempt at happy cinematic music - Albion ONE

    Hey guys! Norwegian noob trying to get some overview on orchestral mockups and writing with samples. I have never studied music, and I can not read from sheets, so I can only rely on my ear and what I can hear inside my head :) This is my first template, and my first "real" composition. If...

    Template for Spitfire Albion One?

    I use Albion One to sketch out nearly all my work and then keep a lot of the patches even in final writing. Out of curiosity I wondered how others split Albion up or what loose template they use for it. I've always found it a little counterintuitive in terms of splitting the library up for...

    Best way to run VE Pro Slave

    What way do you use VE Pro? I have used it a lot over the years although I am back to running everything in Logic and loading instruments when I need them whilst having a general template which has most instruments I need pre-loaded. That said, I'm working on a new project and I want to have...

    Track vs Rack Instruments in Cubase Templates: a Different Approach

    Hi All, I'm a big fan of using the track settings window in Cubase while composing with track instruments. But when using rack instruments, or midi tracks that are connected to an instrument, you have to travel a bit, sometimes a long way, to get to the track settings window of that vst...

    Bizet, Carmen Entr'acte template balance

    Since some time this has been a project of mine to get to a point where there is a reasonable starting point from which to work. For the study I chose a very nice piece of music from Bizet, which helps me to make the best of it (at this moment in time). Constructive comments are welcomed...

    VSL Hold Pedal CC64 Issue

    Hi all :) So I'm in the process of building a VSL Woodwind template, and I'd like to use CC64 (Hold Pedal) to switch between patches along the X-axis of the patch matrix (specifically legato to staccato). This works fine up until trying to add a patch change along the Y-axis. I've attached a...

    Advise regarding moving from VSL to Orchestral Tools

    Hi I have been using VSL for quite a long time, struggling to create a proper workflow. I have always found that the number of articulations in VSL libs are challenging in the way that you need so many key switches to take full advantage of the possibilities. I have kind of lost my heart in this...

    Creating template from non-scripted parameters

    Hi guys I want to make different footsteps-instruments with Kontakt 5. The main thing I wonder about is: how do I make a template that I can reuse for every different kind of footsteps? And I don't mean scripts cause that is pretty obvious to me, I mean the regular parameters like pitch bend...

    Sample libraries and DAW templates

    I know Native Instruments has been working directly with numerous VI companies to optimize their new keyboards... So here's a thought: What if sample library companies created custom templates for the different DAWs out there?? I am a Logic user... So that would be first on my list! Hehehe...

    VEPRO hell and heaven

    Crashes, crahes everywhere! If I open Cubase 8 first then load VEPRO, then they don't connect. If I load VEPRO, then open Cubase it just crashes and disappears. It worked for a while when I first got it. But then it started to crash here and there, and now it's just unusable. I found that I can...

    I'm trying to set up an orchestral template. I've got VEP running on my slave computer but the MIDI channels are really confusing the hell out of me. The thing is, I can load a 16-output instance of VEP and have 16 instruments playing on separate MIDI channels no problem---but ONLY if these...

    Hey everyone, I've recently ran into a situation where I had to deliver the full mix + a ton of different elements on a rather complex cue. Stems, all the individual tracks etc. I've gone through some major PITA before I could deliver. Some of the tracks I had to solo one by one and export...
