Analog warmth / vinyl sound

OK -so I guess I'm a sucker. I have a $22 voucher for upgrading my two Waves plugins (detailed in my "new computer" thread. I've often been curious of the idea of running my music through one of the plugins that purport to make it sound more like vinyl records or in some sense analog tape players. S...

Re: New computer - issues upon issues

Well I got impatient because my time on holiday vacation is rapidly running out; I just saw your very helpful message Mark - but not before I updated anyway. Everything works fine now. It only cost me $22 total to update both Bass Rider and GTR3 from whatever versions I had to version 11. Still anno...

Re: New computer - issues upon issues

Update - Everthing is working fine EXCEPT the waves plugins (bass rider and gtr) I have older versions (I think 7 or 8 ). The waves central app shows the licenses and I've transferred to the new machine. But they don't show under install As much as I truly hate to do this on principle, I may simply ...

Re: New computer - issues upon issues

Thanks all

I got Chris Hein Horns working (native/kontakt) along with mb-33 (through ilok)

Waiting to hear from waves support on gtr (and bass rider)

Also izotope support for neutron and other related plug ins I bought from them

Frustrating but I'll get through it presumably

Re: New computer - issues upon issues

Update - iLok was for a B3 emulator I bought; I have the zip files and I have one more license I can use for it; that should be ok Similar with Chris Hein; I see there is a Native Instruments license manager so that might take care of it. I have the install files. The issue is with Waves (GTR and Ba...

New computer - issues upon issues

I guess this is more a rant or frustration. And it definitely is not a criticism of Mixcraft whatsoever. More it's venting on the insane way certain products (which I've paid good money for) cannot be used on my new computer. At least, I'm be (darned) if I can see how. Bass Rider and GTR from Waves....

Getting a new computer

First, let me say hello again to anyone who might remember me. It's been way too long since I've been on the forum. And way too long since I've made any music. I think close to a year. Time flies with 2 jobs, some health issues for both my wife and mys3lf (nothing serious) and my daughter's wedding!...

Re: 32bit vs 64bit VST/VSTi - Reorganization

32-bit Mixcraft may work more smoothly for you if you have lots of 32-bit plugins in your project. 64-bit Mixcraft may work more smoothly if you have heavy-duty plugins that need lots of RAM.
Let me add - no matter which one you choose, you'll be VERY happy with the main choice you made - Mixcraft!

Re: Drum Pad - Advise on which sounds to map

My daughter wanted to get one for me. No good place to put it though and the cheaper ones have an annoying latency issue

Or did when last I tried one several years ago

Re: Drum Pad - Advise on which sounds to map

I made some progress on this. And I see (I guess) why I can't find recommendations Fiirst there is the search issue. Any reasonable search brings up "how to assign pads" rather than "what to assign them to for effective finger drumming" Second, it is a matter of taste Thirdt, Eight is Not Enough (de...

Re: 32bit vs 64bit VST/VSTi - Reorganization

Correct about the vst3 folders. I guess four folders?

I know I forgot about vst3 and need to go back to inventory them as well. Not sure if it's worth having them in separate folders.

Drum Pad - Advise on which sounds to map

OK - tough to say what I want in a brief subject. And seemingly impossible to Google. I have an Akai mini keyboard with 8 pads. I know how to map drum sounds to them. I also know how to switch to a different set of sounds. I'm a decent drummer by tapping - so I'd really like to use the pads instead ...
