Focusrites are great interfaces, and only seem to be getting better. I'm not sure why anyone would think otherwise

Re: Routing Midi

Really its more just about standardising it. The audio seems pretty standardised. A track can read audio from mostly anywhere, and send it mostly anywhere. I assume (considering sidechaining would be ...... awkward.... without it). So just that on midi. If a plug puts midi out, let me send it somewh...

Re: Needing a new interface

Hi, I've got a Behringer UMC204HD here in the office, and it works great. But 2nd. gen. Focusrites seem to be solid, too. There are a lot of interfaces I don't hear much about, which might mean that they don't have many problems, or that hardly anyone uses them. Zoom seems to have lots of problems....

Re: Famous presets in pop music

Im almost a little shocked the Jump (You know, Van Halen) presets not in there. Its pretty close to one of the most famous synth presets of all time

Re: Routing Midi

Greg, I know this is a big ask. But can you get midi routing prioritized as a feature? Its a genuine show stopper for serious midi workloads.

Re: Routing Midi

Argh. The midi monitor approach looked promising. But , while it turns up on the instrument track. It doesn't want to appear on the audio track after midi guitar.

This is crazy frusturating.

Aaaah its just a way to record midi from a plug anyway. Yeah thats not it. Damn.

Re: Make music notes match vocals in Melodyne?

Yep. Its not an automatic process, but as long as its monophonic, you can tweak the notes to match the audio assuming you render the audio from the instrument first. If you want polyphonic, you'll need the full blown edition (MAYBE the mid range version can, don't know)

Re: Routing Midi

Its pretty fundamental functionality.

What sort of timeframe are we looking at for it being implemented?

Re: Orchestral VSTs

As an OS, Windows 10 64 bit will indeed support substantially more than 8 Gb of RAM, perhaps 128 GB for Win 10 Home and 512 GB for Pro. However, PC makers certify their machine for a lesser amount sometimes. I don't know if it's the mother board or some other factor. Then again, installing more tha...

Re: Orchestral VSTs

Thanks chibear. Full version of Kontakt would open more doors for me. I do need to consider that avenue. EWQL seems like it would in fact be best. But the price is pretty steep for what I'm willing to spend now. All in all, great and very helpful information! Do consider the EWQL "Composer cloud" t...

Routing Midi

Hi, I use Jam Origins MidiVST , and another plugin (ProtoVST) that lets me use LUA to write midi filters for doing more funkier Midi tasks (Particularly rewriting CC Cues for triggering articulations in EastWest Play engine). I cant do this in Sonar, and I can do it in Play. But I'm damned if I can ...

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

The big ones for me would be better support for clocking. I like to work with Tape from time to time, and usually that means I'll stripe a channel with time code and then sync off that. This would also be pretty damn important for the film soundtrack people. Also , and its a big ask , but it would b...

Re: a sad loss

My guess is Apple want Camelphat and Camelspace for Logic Pro. Probably Alchemy too.

That means it'll go bye bye on the PC. Bummer.

Re: Cakewalk Sonar Goes Belly Up

Well Cakewalk by Bandlab is back in the game. If one can stomach downloading the Bandlab app which can BTW be disabled on future startup you can get the program for free. It really isn't a difficult thing to do. Quite a surprise move to many that an investor would buy it and then give it away. I su...
