HZ also gives you the per channel compressors!

Re: U-he appreciation

Just noticed that in Bazille, when going through the factory presets - many have their "Stack" set to only 1 by default. On a lot of these, if you increase it, you hear the true richness of the patch, even with no Stack Voice Detuning (which is great btw). You also test your CPU's mettle unfortunat...

Re: U-he appreciation

When it comes to sound Urs get it's right, what I am not liking about the synths is the GUI, way too much skeumorphism. Zebra was about right. Diva main section works, but I fond the LFO and FX section clutered. Maybe I am spoiled by Aalto and fabfilter stuff, but I think urs is taking the easy pat...

Re: U-he appreciation

I think Bazille has a fantastic looking UI, weird to me that others don't like it... well organized, nice symmetry of elements, and I really dig the aesthetics of it. Plus, if you are using the Gearporn skin, everything is on one page. For such a powerful and flexible synth to have everything all o...

Re: Bit Depth, Sample Rate and Softsynths

Sometimes I like the sound of the 44.1 version better, even if the 96k is technically less distorted. It might have just the bite or smoothness I'm looking for, where as maybe the 96k one sounds too smooth or clean. I pretty much always like the 96khz better... But most of the time I do not even ch...

Re: Bit Depth, Sample Rate and Softsynths

Most of the time I render softsynths at 44.1kHz and don't worry about it. Very rarely I'll render them at 96Khz just to see which I prefer, as was mentioned, with a few synths it can make a slight difference. Not better or worse I find, but it's interesting to compare none the less. Even if I choos...

Re: Bit Depth, Sample Rate and Softsynths

I generally render softsynths at 96khz

With some it makes a significant difference and others a small difference.

Re: U-he appreciation

Seeing as how much I love synthesis of all kinds of sounds, I'll end up buying all of u-he's synths eventually. Zebra is more than enough for now I've realised. Thanks for your info! If you love synthesis, then you will indeed end up buying them ;-) But yeah, Zebra is a vast playground unto itself ...

Re: U-he appreciation

They do sound really organic, just what I want in general. Don't seem to have the lovely meaty silky low-end of Diva though. Watched a YouTube video last night of a guy tweaking away with Bazille. Some of the most unearthly yet organic sounds were dialed in, very pleasing to the ear. ...Great, yet ...

Re: U-he appreciation

Some other Bazille sounds I've made since the last time I posted audio demos... Bazille has steadily become my favorite synth. IMO, best filters ever in software. Bazille can sound beautifully organic, untamed and expressive. http://draigathar.org/sounds/B37.mp3 http://draigathar.org/sounds/B38.mp3 ...

Re: U-he appreciation

I don't have HZ yet. I'm aware of the filters, but I want the oscillators too :mrgreen: Dunno if just the filters would make a noticeable difference. I don't use presets, but it could be very enlightening to reverse engineer howard's patches. Would also mean zebra 3 will be free... Diva or Dark Zeb...

Re: Ableton compared to other DAWS

assumptions are key to survival of the fittest. furthermore, you cant plan anything if you dont make assumptions. we would all be blindly flagelating like amebas without purpose or drive if we didnt generalize and assume certain things. Do plants and animals make assumptions? Cause they live with s...
