    FWIW, I wasn't trying to give a detailed comparison between ultra-low latency performance... just show that Cubase and Studio One weren't using the same audio engine. IME, If running Helix Native under circumstances I mentioned above (96k using a 32-sample ASIO buffer size), Studio One out-performs CbB. To put things into perspective: DP10 is one of the worst performers at ultra low latency Cubase 10.5 is slightly better than DP10 CbB is slightly better than Cubase Reaper is better than CbB At higher ASIO buffer sizes, performance differences tend to be less dramatic. Reaper is overall the most CPU efficient PC DAW application.

    Studio One Pro 4 and Cubase 10.5 absolutely do not have the same audio engine. Studio One has significantly better performance at extremely small ASIO buffer sizes. Quick/Easy test: Using Presonus Quantum as an audio interface, you can set the ASIO buffer size down to 32-samples (at 96k). That results in round-trip latency of 1ms. Load Helix Native (with a patch using 2 Cab IRs for substantial load) into both Cubase 10.5 and Studio One Pro 4. Play thru Helix Native and monitor the resultant audio in realtime (heavy load on the CPU). If you have a fast machine, Studio One Pro 4 will show heavy load... but audio will be glitch-free. Cubase will struggle to keep up with the load (without glitches).

    To top it off - now someone has worked with Skippy to enable this synth to work really well in Plugin Guru’s Unify. Last Saturday’s Plugin Guru Livestream went covered this new capability. Sounds nice! See page 2 of this thread for more info on the combo:

    The long-term answer/solution is to do the in-place upgrade to Win10 Pro. You can then insert two Registry tweaks that stop all automatic updates (including notifications).

    Super cool! $20 for a year of Groove3. Nothing else included in the bundles interests me at all, but that price for a year with Groove3 included is a no brainer.

    This one was the latest theme I was making last year (2019) before specifically concentrating on easier on the eyes Themes which I've released a couple of since, so it’s bright, colorful and may be seen as garish by some but as it was mostly done I decided to finally finish and release, someone might like to use it. Free Download Here.... M-Curves Cakewalk Theme Each of my Themes take a minimum combined total of 150 hours to make, often more, so if you use any of my Themes, please consider sending a small tip for my time and effort, Thank You. ❤️ https://paypal.me/MatthewJohnWhite?locale.x=en_GB (No PayPal account needed if you don't already have one.)

    The issue with XLN is that if your Windows machine ID changes, then it looks like you are using a different computer that has not been activated with XLN yet. Usually a quick fix, Nothing running in the background like some other protection schemes. Just the XLN Installer that you run on demand. But you will need to sign in to your XLN Audio account on the web to adjust your computer activations.

    Yeah I especially like that blue chorus pedal. My favorite type of chorus is vibrato small clone type like Cobain used and I've got plenty of stuff for that sound, but thier blue chorus is great for that The Cure type of chorus and it's great on EP too. The tube screamer and yellow drives, I often use one or the other in front of the Nembrini Marshall. They're both solid for front of amp distortion. There's a ton of tube screamer pedals out there and theirs is a good one. I really like that Rat pedal, the blackdist2 I think it is. I think @Soundwise didn't like it though I believe she doesn't like Rat pedals in general iirc. But I play doom rock/metal and for me it sounds awesome on baritone guitar and bass w/ an octaver (1 octave up). I had the option to get the orange ds1 vst for free from a dude on kvr one time but that dude had just gotten done giving me for free the yellow drive, tube screamer and blue chorus - he was giving away a bunch of free stuff and I just felt kind of greedy coming back for a third time and asking for the ds1 lol. But now I may grab ds1 and I'm looking at Indent 2 tool. I mean they'd be free so might as well right

    Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 was introduced into Windows 10 recently, it is also called something like 'Favored Cores'. It can be read about here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/turbo-boost/turbo-boost-max-technology.html I was wondering what might be the impact of that on Cakewalk and the selection of the thread scheduling models. For those who don't know, this is only available on certain models of Intel processors. It adds a driver to Windows and adds some firmware support to the chip's p-code to support thread movement to different cores without OS involvement. Supposedly it will help thermals and help prevent thermal limiting. Or that is how I read it. My naive thoughts are that moving a process from one core to another will wreak havoc to the cache memory. I ran some tests using a high load Reaktor ensemble running standalone outside a DAW and saw this: (R6-CPU-all-cores.png). Notice the spread in load across all cores. There is no evidence that any core is stressed. Probably that is due to the low sampling rate or averaging of Task Manager. Then I set affinity to use only Core 7: (Reaktor-set-affinity.png). And then I ran again and see Core 7 showing the load Reaktor reports: (Reaktor-using-only-one-core.png). I don't know if or how this could be disabled and it does make measuring and testing loads a bit tricky. Does anyone know more about this new feature and what it means for us in audio?

    Peg Winder @ Sweetwater I suppose I should say this device isn't for everyone. I actually enjoy restringing and putting slow care into an instrument, usually with a glass of single malt. However, there are times in the studio when speed is key, and this in my gig bag prevents it from getting lost (like these with a drill that grow feet: https://www.guitarcenter.com/DAddario-Planet-Waves/Drill-Bit-Peg-Winder-1342625288175.gc?source=4WWMWXGL&source=4WWRWXGL&storeCode=&gclid=CjwKCAjw_-D3BRBIEiwAjVMy7HqwFO-Ono5WvUcT0DzpiEWwRgJ7j8g17F4M-LeahtKNBI1qlPfhWRoChRgQAvD_BwE ).

    You could try disconnecting the drive, then running windows with it disconnected and then reconnecting the drive, see what it does. If the DVD is too old, could get a new DVD drive or if it's a laptop, get an external one, they are pretty cheap. To get out from where you are now, you could use the windows 10 disc/USB (if your computer can boot from USB), change the boot sequence in BIOS to DVD/USB and then boot from that and when it starts select the recovery/repair. https://www.thewindowsclub.com/boot-or-repair-windows-10-using-the-installation-media Or the various ways to do a reinstall, there is an option to completely reinstall windows but keep all your stuff: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4000735/windows-10-reinstall You probably just need to do a repair and then upgrade the DVD burner.

    Yes! I was just about to buy a month membership to check out the Melodyne 5 videos, now I'll have a whole year! Plus, years ago I wanted the Loop Loft The Producer Pack V1, but it was way overpriced. https://www.thelooploft.com/products/producer-pack-drum-loops Happy to get that, and the Sonnox TransMod Native!

    I have the joy of now dealing with both. So far MS has not destroyed anything major for me. I have lost access to my (more conveniently located) external USB3 CD/DVD writer a while back, but TBH I burn so few that it's not anything major (like that song you were learning Kenny).

    If it saved a restore point, maybe you could go back to that then turn updates off? (If you have the Pro version and not the Home version that is.)

    They send you a box with a booklet with a code in it. You enter the code on their website and you'll get all the codes pop up for the products. There you'd find the Groove3 code. I tend to buy these bundles when they come up as well specifically for the groove3 codes, too.

    Would this be accessible in case we order from outside the US? I mean, would the 1-year pass be a code or would it be included inside the box as well?

    Black Magic Woman / Gypsy Queen - Santana Carlos' take on Peter Green's song is sublime. I haven't heard it in a long time, and listening to it is like visiting and old, long lost friend. I still think this is one of his best solos on record.

    I can see in your screenshots that there's still some minor noise around the hits. Gates or not, they're not clean as a drum machine sample, and even then, you'll sometimes get false detections during decays, so aggressively gating, bouncing to a new clips so the actual source itself is clean and then using that as your detection track is the best way to save you unnecessary work. It's absolutely that picky. As I said in my older post, the detection algorithm was changed since 8.5 and the side effect was definitely later hits on drum detections, although it did improve detection for other material quite a bit. I completely agree, there's no question that you shouldn't need to adjust your workflow to get around this issue - it should be fixed (and not just reverting back to the old algorithm, the reason that was changed was it fell over on some material too). I know at least one person (ie: me) has reported this issue and the devs are aware of it, so it wouldn't surprise me if adding pre-filtering is already on the to-do list once they get a chance. But I've always been one of those guys where if something isn't working, sure - get annoyed, definitely report it - but then see if you can find a workaround in the meantime so you can get the job done, which is what my old post was about.

    Good orchestration Nice build up to ~2:00 I like the strings coming in ~1:10 Classical music dynamic range tends to be high but I thought overall the music was too quiet I'm not sure if the music brings to mind a pandemic but I don't know what that would sound like anyway. 😁

    @Calum Findlay Nice track gets a little quite here in places, which is a shame barely lighting the first two segments of my meters. (Saffire Pro 40 driving Adam A7x's, just so you know I am not running into some none sense kit)
