Why would anyone want an computer based editor for a synth that has a controller for every function right there on the front panel?

OMFG. why did you have to go and bring existence of the VAX 77 to my attention. It looks totally awesome! Now I have to figure out some way of saving up $2450. Noooooooooo! The only thing I might lust after more would be a VAX 88 (and if there is a VAX 88 please don't tell me about it!) Well, if it...

Rather remote Tokyo suburb/satellite city - countryside, according to every Tokyoite. 4000 yen (about $40) a month.

Yeah. For example, the midi implementation in ableton is already perfect. What we need is to downgrade everything else. Just make sure no plugin has more than 128 parameters, and so on.

Well, I'm starting piano lessons this evening and I'm looking for a keyboard to practice on. So I'm thinking of going for a poly AT board because I want to use it for synths and I can imagine it being very expressive. (e.g. like with a pad sound with poly AT mapped to panning) I know reaktor suppor...

You already have it, it's included in you Live. Activate it in settings (but note that You'll be in demo mode and cannot save anything while You have the Operator active).

Most of them are available as demos, so just try them out. Overall, I like them (only tried the demos), but some of them have serious CPU usage issues (example, when i use the CS-80, CPU usage on my macbook is like 80%, just from the graphics! (look in the activity monitor, not the Live cpu usage me...

To give operator away undervalues the software. I bought it and love it. In a time when you can download most software pirated and free. You'd think being loyal to paying customers is important. Sales I can handle but making it free is wrong. Operator is like, what, 3+ years old by now, and has not...

No apparent way to get midi data into a return channel, and no way to put a clip in there either, so AFAIK: no, it can't be done, at least not using sends/returns.

Edit: in session view, that is.

I have the same problem with my IO26 + macbook pro. It also happens sometimes (but not always) when i wake it up from sleep. Annoying.
