Issues downloading Packs

Some packs downloaded fine, but I'm also having trouble with a few of them. Orchestral Strings and a few others won't even start downloading. Orchestral Woodwinds always fails at 516MB - I've had this happen numerous times. I get the same issues with some of the other packs as well. Just curious if ...

Fractal Audio Axe-Fx-Disco-Party

Fractal Audio is definitely pushing the limits of guitar processing...

"Everything you hear is one Axe-Fx II preset, played live in realtime (stock Telecaster)."

Re: Another laptop thread - Opinions on Lenovo laptops?

I have a ThinkPad W520. So far my only complaints would be that the native screen resolution is too high, and it came with only a 500GB HDD but I did get a great deal on it and disk space is cheap. It's been a great machine. No USB issues. The W520 is a great choice for a workstation class laptop - ...

Re: Night of the Living iPads- iOS etc. and the end of pro apps

Desktops aren't going away anytime soon... Workstation laptops are taking some of that away, but you still need external devices for storage whether it be external drives for home use or desktop workstations/servers in enterprise environments. People have to develop these mobile apps, and they are n...

Re: 24/192 Music Downloads ...and why they make no sense

Interesting article for sure... The part I don't quite understand is this: "I've run across a few articles and blog posts that declare the virtues of 24 bit or 96/192kHz by comparing a CD to an audio DVD (or SACD) of the 'same' recording. This comparison is invalid; the masters are usually different...

Increasing Song Volume - Limiter Vs. Master Fader/Utility?

So I have a song "mixed" and it is peaking around -6 dB and now want to increase the overall level of the song. From what I've read hear, the common way of doing this is to turn the gain up on a limiter to increase the gain and limit any peaks. Is there any difference between doing this and increasi...

Re: 15,6" fullHD (1920x1080) - too small pixels / PPI....?

Just checked and I'm running at 1680x1050 which I find more useful than the full 1920x1080.

Re: 15,6" fullHD (1920x1080) - too small pixels / PPI....?

I have a 15.6" capable of 1920x1080 and find that everything is too small to work with at that resolution. I have yet to find the ideal compromise with Windows 7 for that screen. I run it at the next setting down from 1920x1080 (don't have it in front of me so I don't know the exact resolution) and ...

Re: Triggered clips starting at unexpected times

It does seem to be this set - checked out another with the same Global and Clip Launch Quantization settings and it is still behaving as it had been - the MIDI notes triggering clips are all set at the first beat of the bar before I want the clips to start playing and the clips start playing on the ...

Re: Triggered clips starting at unexpected times

Still messing around with this... Setting the Clip Quantization to none for the clips I'm triggering works fine for those, they just play when the MIDI note is played like they should... But... Triggering scenes is another issue... this worked great when they were triggering on the next bar followin...

Re: Triggered clips starting at unexpected times

Global quantization is set to 1 Bar, All clips have their Quantization set to Global and Default Launch Quantization is set to Global, so I'm not seeing any changes there... I'm seeing some clips behave as if set to Global, some as if set to none, and others just not when I would expect them to... M...

Triggered clips starting at unexpected times

I've been using MIDI Yoke to trigger clips and the triggered clips have always started one bar after the MIDI note used to trigger them. If I want a clip to start playing at bar 8 I've put the MIDI note on bar 7 and this had been consistent, but I added a new clip and it was launching about a beat e...
