Re: Waldorf Micro Q

I think it's a good deal. The vintagesynth price is way off, yeah. Honestly though you might consider the Largo plugin that just came out over the microQ. The interface on the Q is one of, if not the best on any hardware VA synth, it's really worth having in hardware form. The one on the microQ is n...

This, I don't care if it's ala Logic or whatever else, it's a common task, very useful, and Live is not very good at it.

Re: Massive question

For modulations where the sidechain option isn't available, you can assign a macro knob to all three level controls in the envelope, I think it's easier to turn them all down to zero and modulate upwards.

I always find these things entertaining. I picked A as my favorite, followed by B, and C much worse. Also guessed that C was sylenth because it sounded quite a bit different to the other two (I've never really used sylenth itself). I deemed it worse because I find the general character of its resona...

This issue is really a lot more complicated than you might think. First of all there is the issue of what is "correct" timing anyway. Anything going through a MIDI cable has pretty poor timing, even if that wasn't a problem most standard MIDI hardware and drivers is rather loosely timed as well. For...

Question #1 - WTF is it 600 quid??? Three reasons: - People compare the pricing to cheaply built M-Audio controllers or what have you, whereas this (presumably) will be as well built as most other Vestax gear (which is to say much better than any behringer, m-audio, what have you that I've ever use...

the current versions of nehalim (i7) still use the Northbridge as far as i know. there will be several variations like Lynnefield out next year, that wont need it on the motherboard. The platform still has a "northbridge" but memory access no longer goes through it so it is not really a "northbridg...

He is talking about the Core i7 chips. The memory controller is built into the processor, it was previously part of the chipset. The memory performance is much improved as a result. The launch was on Monday and you can order one right now from newegg or wherever, though they are not very cost effect...

I remember a similar thread over on livepa.org The problem is that by the time you gather all the suggestions and put them all into one stepsequencer you get a bloated and unwieldy piece of crap. :) It would be awfully nice if there were a very flexible and fully featured stepsequence engine in a pl...

VST parameters are floating point, yes. Anything labelled "VST parameter automation" should be "implemented as floating point", it is nonsensical to do something else... Many hosts of course can automate both MIDI CC and VST parameter and so that is probably the source of any confusion in this regar...

I don't understand a lot of the complaints in this thread. This isn't made for studio use where things like endless rotaries and motarized faders are nice to have, it's made for live work where those tend to be more fiddly than they are worth and normal pots and faders are really preferable...

The plugin buffer is avoidable, it's extra latency that Live adds for whatever reason... I can't say I've tested it in f.e. Cubase as I only use it for production and not live purposes, so maybe some other DAWs do a similar thing, but stuff like Usine and some other live-use hosts don't have the plu...
