    Hi Jon,

    I‘ve found a few conditions where this could occur. Can I send you a new version so you can try it out if it fixes the problem?

    If not, a rendered audio file showing the behaviour would be super useful (along with the exact preset that you‘ve used) - as long as they are occuring in the rendered output.

    After a long hesitation, I finally bought it.
    First impression was a bit mitigated...
    Then, after exploring deeper I should admit that it sounds really good !
    Don’t regret my $100

    First Hexeract, and Auddict's tech support is fantastic. But since I brought it up here, I wanted to clarify some of the issues I had with Hexeract. In an earlier post I reported some weird static at the beginning and end of sounds. After some great tech support there has been some interesting discoveries.

    The issue I am having seems to be centered around how some hosts interpret my Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 (ver. 1) driver while I am using Hexeract. For example-

    1. Hexeract works flawlessly in stand-alone mode with the native driver.

    2. It works flawlessly in Ableton with the native driver (this one has me stumped).

    3. It works flawlessly in Cubase Pro, FL Studio, and Maschine for me ONLY IF I use ASIO4ALL drivers instead of the native driver. (I also have Reason, but have not setup my VST path to test it out as I don't use Reason in that way.)

    4. Other VSTs do not have the static issue I am having with Hexeract no matter what driver I use.

    5. The static sound from Hexeract even renders (prints) from my various hosts (except Ableton) if I use my native driver.

    It is very strange to me. I am tempted to reinstall Hexeract from scratch to see if it makes a difference, but it feels connected to the driver, though I cannot reproduce it in Ableton or standalone mode.

    The techs at Auddict have this info from me, but I was wondering if you guys had any thoughts?

    I've been a big supporter of Hexeract since I bought it when it was still on the initial version and absolutely love my Auddict Kontakt libraries. They sound fantastic and get a lot of use. But I've just started using the newest revision of Hexeract and it keeps crashing Cubase hard when auditioning presets in the presets menu. A. Lot. I'm not even going to spend the 7 or 8 minutes it takes for the Cubase process to unlock so I can kill it every single time I open Hexeract. I hope there's a new revision upcoming to fix some of these bugs people are mentioning because I love the sound and potential. I just can't continually waste time using it in the meantime. Is there a previous version installer out there somewhere? I'd rather roll back so I could at least get some use out of it if possible.

    Hi Richard,

    I've sent you a PM with the download link for the older version along with a few instructions on how to help me out in order to get to the bottom of this if you've got the time.

    What is the pricing for a commercial license of HISE? And if you go the open source route, would you have to distribute your samples or just the source code? Sent an email on this a few days ago and didn't get a reply, this was the only other way I could think of to contact you. Sorry for doubling up.

    I'm developing a free (as in speech) sample library in HISE. It will be released under the GNU GPL as HISE is, however I've opted to release the samples under a creative commons license. My main reason for doing so is the GPL isn't meant for audio files, it's intended for software and one of its conditions is that the "source code" must be made available. Of course samples don't have source code so you can't really comply with it. If the samples were embedded in the plugin then that's a little different but with HISE the samples are always separate. The second reason is that if the samples were released under the GPL license then any derivative works (including music created with those samples) would also have to be released under the GPL, because the "source code" would be part of the derivative work. And of course expecting users to license their music under the GNU GPL is impractical and makes no sense.

    The creative commons license is perfectly suited for samples and at one point there was even a dedicated CC sampling license.

    Okay thats good to know. I really want to start releasing some libraries using HISE, so customers without Kontakt can use my products. My first one would probably be free to test out any issues, but further ones I would want the samples to have standard sample licensing (rights to use in composition, but no rights to distribute them or re-sell them alone).

    At least at this time I don't care about people seeing my source code, or even downloading it and adding their own samples. I actually leave all the scripts in my Kontakt libraries open because I learned a lot of what I know from looking through other peoples code. However i'm still interested in hearing a price on the commercial licensing.

    Thanks for the info.
