CTO | Tools for Composers - QuickLoad 25% Off for One Day

Dirk Ehlert

Dear VI-Control,

just posting this again (in the correct forum now).
I recently released my take on an all purpose (media composer) template, that is lightweight, efficient and fast, but gives me the freedom to not be stuck in a soundworld of pre-loaded (favorite) libraries - giving me more creativity and ideas, it allows me to connect better with my work tools - and finally know what I actually have available on my drives. The whole system is a Kontakt QuickLoad framework, that you fill with your specific libraries that you have and own. Every Instrument has it's own dedicated return channel for mixing and routing purposes. You can render the master output, stems (including Send FX) or individual subgroups (without send FX) for further or external mixing.

The template comes in Versions for Cubase and Studio One, for Kontakt 5 and Kontakt 6, as well as with my go-to 3rd party plugins and a stockplugin only version.

Here is some of the feedback that I have received so far:

"I can no longer imagine working without this template."

"...this is the most logical way I seen anyone set up a template..."

"If composing fast is your goal, you'll definitely benefit by this template ready-to-go"

The intro pricing period is already over, but I've decided to give back to the VI-C community with a
20% off discount until July 10, 2020.

Use code "VIC20" at checkout (without the "").

Cheers and happy 4th

I too jumped on it. Desperate for yet another approach, after all the confusing tutorials and approaches from Babylon expression maps, key switch techniques and hardware, multiple large vs small templates, hiding and purging tracks, VE Pro, and on and on endlessly ... Looking forward to trying it...

So apparently some a...hole I mean someone, who saw an opportunity is already selling the template for around $40 in China :mad:
I mean, I expected to see ripped versions online at some point, but even selling it, that's bold... Anyway I can only urge people to go the original source (mine)...
Right now I think there's honestly not much I can do about it, besides letting people know that this chinese one is not a trustworthy source.

Have a great sunday folks :)
Back to finishing the NUCLEUS template :emoji_v:

I also welcome these templates, I did not know they existed, if they go well it will be the solution to many of my problems. They are already in my Studio One, now to try them.

Would you be doing a Nucleus template for Studio One?
Not at the moment, as the AudioImperia stuff specifically relies on the negative track delay (-125ms in the case of Nucleus) and Studio one only produces sonic garbage when you put the track delay anywhere near those numbers. Depends on what they do tomorrow, maybe S1 5 has improved on that end

Free update for the Cubase QuickLoad Template

  • added versions for singe instances per instrument instead of multitimbral (right now 110 Kontakt 5 or 6 instances)
  • aimed at higher performant systems (higher RAM load)
  • easier freeze/render in place (due to just one instrument/channel)
  • easier to duplicate and add in additional instruments while keeping all the send and group routings intact
If you have already bought it you should have an update email already (be sure to check your Spam folder)


Happy Sunday everyone

I am intrigued. Still, I am wondering about how efficient the workflow will be when non-kontakt libraries are added (Eric Whitacre, Labs, UVI etc).
