Re: Virtual instrument freezing?

I have found that as my (M1) CPU usage rises, MIDI playback is the first thing to suffer. Not that the system is overloaded but if I have a load of plugins running then MIDI tracks can stop playback....

Re: Sustain Glitch

Sustain pedal data is like note data. You need pedal down and pedal up or you will be in limbo land.

Punching in with MIDI piano has been a pain since time immortal for this reason. I used to ask...

Re: THREE $10 Plugin Deals 👍

$10 is the new $29 :D

The second $10 offering from Softube I remember recently. Hopefully they will get some hard to ignore deals further up the price range too?

With Waves offering two for...

Re: BEWARE: SSL is abandoning their plugins. Again.

Waves had a similar thing when one of the new Mac OS was released which had a whole load of security measures, including blocking access to audio devices.

I did a whole lot of messing around...

Re: Positive Grid Bias FX 2 AAX plugin broken in Pro Tools...

I haven't installed Bias FX 2 on my M1 yet but it seems there is no rush.

Positive Grid had a poor track record with updating their EQ plugins for AAX so I hope they are a bit quicker with getting...

Re: New Air Musical Instruments your favorite?

Strange they didn't think to get an upgrade option for existing users announced with the new products? I'm not in a rush to try them with current pricing!




Agreed, it seemed like scant/no...

Re: Mcdsp V7 - No grace period?

Colin must be smoking crack if he things I'm paying those upgrade prices!

McDSP are blacklisted until they sort themselves out.

Re: Mcdsp V7 - No grace period?

I was keen to take a look at v7. Looks expensive to me at $29-49 in upgrade fee per plugin from v6. I pay less than that on average for new purchases these days. And what does this fee get me? Hi res...

Re: Drum VI recommendations

Big fan of Strike here. Sounds are not great out of the box. Poorly/over mixed kits in for my taste but great selection of patterns and features. Using it with Big Sur and the M1 better than ever...

Re: Bars|Beats view is messed up (missing bars)

Yep, agreed.

This bug has been around for a long time, going back several major versions. Once the condition appears is normally stays. I'm not sure what triggers it either.

I wonder if...

Re: Universal Audio goes native.

Let's wait and see.

UAD plugin prices have crashed in recent years. The odd or bi-annual sale has been replaced with perpetual sales, with many products 50% off or more, just like the other...

Re: Universal Audio goes native.

Makes sense. The UAD plugins are overpriced though. Just look at the Plugin Alliance equivalents :confused:

Let's see if UAD soften. They certainly are evolving, if all be it slowly. I'm not...

How long till they sell native versions to us mortals? I'd buy some but I certainly will not be subscribing!

Re: AIR Hybrid 3 (Monterey)

Agreed, Loom is fantastic, especially given the price!

Vacuum Pro is awesome for 'analog' sounds and more.

Re: BEWARE: SSL is abandoning their plugins. Again.

Compatibility going forward is a big dealt to me. These days I generally stick with the main plugin vendors and avoid any niche products.

Thanks for the heads up! I haven't updated yet but might take measure to backup the plugins before I do now.

Re: Tempo ruler (possibly basic) question

I'm wondering if this is correct for what you are trying to do?

In short, if you want MIDI data / Elastic Audio to following changes in tempo then set all tracks to tick based. Then if you change...

Re: What's the best way to increase the volume?

I'll answer the question in one word, 'normalise'! :D

If you are happy with the sound but just need it hotter then gain up/normalise.

Depending on the mix, if you add gain at many places then...
