I definitely agree B2C companies in general have been improving their marketing a lot during the past 10 years or so.I sometimes wonder, if the ratio of marketing costs vs. development costs has been shifting towards higher marketing expenses - maybe for soundware even more so than for software, since arguably the competition is even more plentiful.
You don‘t need to do custom DSP programming in HISE unless you want to.I'm a coder too! I'm actually building an audio hosting SaaS.
Of course I've considered getting into the audio dev world... it seems pretty intimidating though. I did C++ years ago and I'm comfortable designing and programming UIs, but the DSP stuff scares me.
Do you have anything available for HISE?
So is Omnisphere, so is Falcon... yet they still evolve.HALion is far more powerful and sophisticated than the vast majority of synths in its present state and they continue to release a wide variety of soundsets, so they prob don't feel any urgency.
Well, it's not like I came on a Falcon thread and said "hey people stop being so enthusiastic about Falcon and better get this other software that had no development in 5 years, I know from people that I know that it's gonna smash Falcon" etc. These things do need to be replied to, to say the least.Haha well… I’d argue you have a big influence on it being about Halion a lot, lol
'But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent.This reminds me of that one LCD Soundsystem song, called I’m Losing My Edge
I hear you're buying a synthesizer and an arpeggiator and are throwing your computer out the window because you want to make something real. You want to make a Yaz record.
I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables.

I hear everybody that you know is more relevant than everybody that I know.
But have you seen my records? This Heat, Pere Ubu, Outsiders, Nation of Ulysses, Mars, The Trojans, The Black Dice, Todd Terry, the Germs, Section 25, Althea and Donna, Sexual Harrassment, a-ha, Pere Ubu, Dorothy Ashby, PIL, the Fania All-Stars, the Bar-Kays, the Human League, the Normal, Lou Reed, Scott Walker, Monks, Niagra, Joy Division, Lower 48, the Association, Sun Ra, Scientists, Royal Trux, 10cc, Eric B. and Rakim, Index, Basic Channel, Soulsonic Force ("just hit me"!), Juan Atkins, David Axelrod, Electric Prunes, Gil! Scott! Heron!, the Slits, Faust, Mantronix, Pharaoh Sanders and the Fire Engines, the Swans, the Soft Cell, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics.
If you are disinterested in developing for any owned and proprietary platform (e.g. Kontakt, Halion, Falcon, SoundPaint,) then the best alternative is HISE, which will give you independent VST, AU, AAX, stand alone capabilities, but its a development platform NOT just a synth/sampler.If you are disinterested in developing for Kontakt the best alternative is HISE.
Sorry, we've gone wildly off tangent now.Well, it's not like I came on a Falcon thread and said "hey people stop being so enthusiastic about Falcon and better get this other software that had no development in 5 years, I know from people that I know that it's gonna smash Falcon" etc. These things do need to be replied to, to say the least.
Yes, one core; though I am sceptical that going multicore would solve the usage issues.Falcon runs on one core. But running VEP just for Falcon seems overkill to be honest.
Well, this thread seemed to be one of those rare situations in which something really interesting and constructive was proposed, and I would have certainly enjoyed it staying on course.Sorry, we've gone wildly off tangent now.
I can't confirm this happening inside Nuendo, the Falcon performance in multitrack sessions is good (also combined with multiple UVI Workstation and UVI Walker tracks).I love Falcon and you can get incredible sounds out of it of a wide variety. I can't remember who it was, but someone suggested that using it inside of Vienna Ensemble Pro, even on the same computer as your DAW, helps a lot with the CPE usage.
