Re: Never seen the built-in tuner actually work

I spent more time with GTune. Like many others it displays a green center that lulls you into the confidence of believing you have perfect pitch. It has the advantage though that it displays below how many cents your are off. In comparison, you clearly see the display rotating on a strobe tuner for ...

Re: Never seen the built-in tuner actually work

I checked the TC polytune VST. This seems to be an older version, but works. Be prepared to wait ages for the C++ library to download and install. I thought this had stalled, because it showed no signs of progress. Yes it works. What they call "stream mode" is supposed to be akin to a strobe tuner, ...

Re: Never seen the built-in tuner actually work

Some more contemplation leads me to the following conclusions: I share the feelings about the supplied tuner. By the time you hit the DAW, you are pretty late to think about tuning. It is not the DAW´s purpose to guarantee correct tuning, so having a tuner there can only be a crutch at best. Many of...

Re: Never seen the built-in tuner actually work

There is a VST from GVST called GTune . Thats what Greg is probably referring to. It works better. I only can get it to work on playback however. A pseudo strobe tuner used to exist called G-tune . This seems obsoleted. The author says his product is now Strobosoft from Peterson. You have to have 49...

Re: BOSS VE-20 VOCAL PERFORMER

I have a similar TC Helicon device that uses a guitar´s strumming to determine the chord to harmonize to. Since this is not practical on a track-by-track recording scenario, I forked a guitar-like synth track that plays on one of my interface outputs into the TC-Helicon. This works a treat (if your ...

Re: Plug-in Hygiene (when are they using resources?)

When I still had my 32bit machine, memory was at its limits when using samplers like EZD. I observed that memory does not get released when unloading plug-ins or upon freezing. I requested that feature, but as of now (end of V.7 development) this does not seem to have changed. With 64 bits and oodle...

Re: How do I make my recordings sound good through speakers?

You asked the 1Million $$$ question :D What are "good" headphones for mixing, as mentioned before, may sound sterile for listening to music. For those little mp3 players to sound good at pretty low power they have to fiddle with the frequency range. Usually an unnatural bass boost. Imagine a multiba...

Re: Trim plugin

Helmut, can you educate me on this? Have you seen this video ? What they do, they have built a mechanism into their DAW that allows you to gain manipulate a clip, meaning it can work on a part of a track. This approach has also the benefit to make a visual change to the waveform along with the zoom...

Re: Trim plugin

This is the poor man´s equivalent to linking faders. Some DAWs allow to do that. Mike Senior suggests a gain plugin or equivalent control on any channel´s input, so that the fader remains at about zero, where its greatest resolution resides. Some probably never noticed that the resolution of the sli...

Re: Trim plugin

What you have seen is Pro Tools´ clip gain feature. I requested this functionality a couple of times. Let´s see if they incorporated it. While gain plugins like the one you mentioned d o work, they do not show a boosted version of the track display. With a fairly low signal you end up still seeing n...

Re: Youlean Loudness Meter - FREE Plugin

Hi, your program has some professional features I have not seen in freeware yet. Congrats for this alone (but not limited to that). Such as: being able to look at the past signal history. Some of the pro´s have this, but then if the history is disappearing in too small a window this is not much usef...

Re: Asio

If I understand you right you are trying to output to a different audio unit than you use for recording, such as the system audio. If you installed the Focusrite´s ASIO packet, then you should see all I/Os the Focusrite has. Unfortunately, selecting the Focusrite ASIO driver excludes the rest of the...

K-Meter updated

This subject probably drowned in the other thread... K-Meter (the free version) has been updated to Vers. 2.6.1. This release works on 64 bits too, but most importantly, has a loudness measurement according to ITU BS.1770-1 loudness weighted levels (you can still use RMS metering). This has been dev...
