    Just a heads-up: I just logged into my PB account. It might be that I've not been very observant in the past, but I've just noticed that Virtual Cash now has a one-year expiry timeout. According to the help page, buying something will add to your virtual cash (as before) and reset the timer back to 365 days.

    This is more of an FYI, but I junction big folders to get them off my C drive. I had done this with the C:Program Files/Common Files/VTS3 folder a long time ago, but Melodyne 5.2+ has issues with this. It will run in stand-alone mode, but not inside a DAW. Because of this I updated Cakewalk to verify errors thrown. I had to chuckle afterwards... to fix the issue in Cakewalk is simply to manually "Rescan Failed Plugins" No muss, no fuss. In SO5 it is significantly more painful (suggested solution is to move most of the settings folder and piecemeal repair that) - it works, but not simple at all. A quick shout of appreciation @Noel Borthwick for how elegant the repair is inside Cakewalk, as well as the additional failure popup (Cakewalk throws 2 at you). Some programs do react adversely to directory junctions (Adobe and Corel specifically), but Melodyne 5.2+ does as well, so do not junction the VST3 folder. For those who do not know junctions, it is probably best if you forget you read this.... [Jedi hand wave]... "This is not the thread you are looking for."

    Same here. I picked up a cheap crossgrade to Studio One Pro back when Gibson dumped Cakewalk. Then Cakewalk made a great comeback. Stuck with both now LOL!

    Personus were smart to offer a full 1 month demo of S1 Pro 5. I tried it and yesterday I buckled and got the S1 Pro 5 Crossgrade from Thomann for $209. Hopefully it will include the upgrade to v6. If not, I'll wait for Black Friday upgrade sales.

    Good luck with the visit! You're a drummer and I'm a bassist, so I think you might appreciate the first audio I ran through my new Focal Shape 65's. My new studio is finally coming together after tearing down the one in the U.S. 18 months ago. Feels really good. Next to be connected is my NI S61 Mk2. Great keyboard controller.

    You just HAD to bring that up, didn't you? 😄 Happy to hear that you're happy. Getting to the right place in life is usually difficult to impossible. This thread has gotten WAY off topic, but that's OK, because XLN haven't done doodlely squat new in forever. It's off-topic threads like this that keep them in the light. Back off-topic. I am SO glad I moved on from marketing to engineering, but I have to add one important caveat. What I did learn through my 1st semester junior year, especially the three semesters of accounting, really helped me later in my engineering career. Not many engineers can talk to the C-suite and be taken seriously. I could talk their talk. What I consider my best-ever moment happened in Korea in 1999. I had a partnership with PWC Consulting at the time. They had a lead for a major consulting gig at LG-Caltex (the petroleum group of LG). They wanted a white-face to present the program to the board and they specifically wanted one from Motorola, the inventor of Six Sigma. Well, that turned out to be me. LG brought three rows of aluminum stadium seating into the boardroom for the unit presidents and senior VPs. Along the opposite wall were seated the local PWC staff trying to get the contract. There were 10 guys on the board, very old. Each was stone-faced enough to be on Mt. Rushmore. The chair at the opposite end for the CEO was empty. His personal assistant, one of the most lovely women I've ever seen, dressed in a formal ancient Korean gown, came in through a private door and set a glass of pink juice on a doily and left the room. That was the signal that the CEO was arriving. He came in and the entire LG group stood and bowed for precisely the same amount of time without looking at each other and sat back down. The angle of their bows was also so precise, I could have shot a laser across their backs. They all stared straight ahead and never looked at me. I thought I was in real trouble. The CEO sat down and very casually crossed his legs and looked off to my right, also not looking at me. I'd done my research and found out that he'd been at U.W.-M. at the same time I was, studying for his PhD, so I greeted him as a fellow Badger and gave my 45 minute presentation that no one appeared to be paying attention to. I felt like a comedian who'd gotten zero applause during his entire routine. When I finished, I asked for questions. The closest board member to me on my left turned and asked "who else in our business is doing this?" After a moment of contemplation, I responded "what's wrong with going first?" No more questions. I thanked them for their "attention". The CEO got up to leave the room (so I and everyone else in the room thought), but he walked around the board and came up to me, already a breach of protocol. I held out my right hand with my left hand, palm up, slightly leading my right hand in a position of #1 respect. He grabbed my hand and put his other arm around my shoulder. Now EVERYONE was looking. He whispered to me "that was exactly what I wanted to hear" and turned and left the room, which was full of stunned faces, which I read as "he's going to make us do this." That one answer was worth several million dollars of revenue. I spent the next 9 months there, helping them get the program going. I was able to bill them over $5K a day, just for my time. I smoked my partner in the U.S. who had responsibility for the Americas. He was a real buttwipe, so I enjoyed every moment of our annual business review with the Moto C-suite that year.

    Greg did say that there's a YouTube review that should be out soon. It's his birthday weekend, so he's probably with his family right now, otherwise, I know he'd get something out. Hopefully, one of the folks who posted in this thread who have bought it can help out. I'm going to be away from my PC most of this weekend, otherwise, I'd make an audio demonstration for you, as I love the library and have been using it a lot since I got it. If no one has a preset run through by Monday, I'll try to do one.

    Augmented Orchestra to v1.1 Updates via UVI Portal - Also on sale for $199 or Euros 199. This is a nice one, something I may not have tried if I was not on the Sonic Pass subscription. Purchase link OB Legacy is also updated and there were several updated a few days ago in addition to World Suite 2 which has already been posted, but sadly I can't recall which ones.

    It's very cool that Cakewalk gets these incremental updates on a regular basis, for free! By contrast, Studio One 6 is dropping soon, meaning that the current Studio One 5 will be forever stuck where it is, with no more bug fixes. 😢

    Real talk: depending on how girly she is, one way to help her understand might be to gently offer that musical tools are similar to a woman's wardrobe: in need of updating from time to time. And just as difficult for the other gender to understand; I've been rocking plaid shirts and jeans for 45 years. When I started, it was "Laurel Canyon hippie rocker," then 10 years later it was punk (you get to keep the jeans longer because huge rips in them are part of the look), then 5 years after that the pinnacle of the Seattle look. If I want to switch to business casual, I grab the least faded jeans, switch to a button down and press it before I put it on. As Joe Jackson famously said "it's different for girls." The age old reply to "why do you need so many guitars?" "Same reason you need so many pairs of shoes, each one is different and used for different occasions." Just don't be a dick about it like you're throwing it back in her face. If she gets that it's a tool that you use in your (ahem, second) favorite pastime, well, the new version will let you do more and explore new things.

    Just a note here. I junction all “content” that does not “ask” where I want to put it. Cakewalk, and all other programs are on the C drive. The core program just doesn’t take up that much disc space. Oh, and one last note: IF you have one M2 drive, put the samples on it, not the OS. just sayin’, you can thank me later… t

    Yes, it did occur to me that perhaps everything else was just too low, as Dickens has suggested. But, I guess, I didn't try enough to just make everything else louder. I will try this today. Also, I will look at those tutorials that John Vere has offered. Thanks for these replies. LNovik

    Intellectual property concerns aside for a moment (regarding "Dylan Drums" "Queen Drums" and your other trademark infringing names for your libraries), you did a really good job on the tone of this library. Which, based on some of the libraries I've picked up that you've done under AnyDayLong and Past To Future, you're very good at getting vintage tones. As a sample buyer and someone who's consulted to around two dozen developers over those years who sees your talent, I wish you were more transparent and would just communicate openly when you post in social media as you'd build a lot more business by building relationships with sample buyers. You clearly know how to make good sounding libraries. I seriously wish your libraries had more detail though and more sophisticated user interfaces/mixing capabilities. But for their price, they tend to be a good value and I think you could easily grow your brand by not engaging in trademark infringements like "Beatle Drums" or "The Jackson 4." While your business is small enough it probably won't get on the radar of the law firms for these artists estates, it does delegitimize your brand to the vast majority of the market your trying to sell to; that is, many sample buyers will see these names and write off your work as fly by night, a hack, when you clearly have talent. Instead consider related names that communicate what a library is about without infringing on someone else's intellectual property rights. Consider what East West did with their "Fab Four" library package. The name does a good job of conveying what it is without making the developer look fly by night by engaging in trademark infringement. EastWest was careful not to infringe on trademarks by calling it "The Beatles Libraries " or something like that. Just some advice for you to take or leave intended to be helpful.

    Not since the other day. The song that I used to learn GP is in the last stages of mixing and I am trying to get that done. And as always, nothing ever goes as smooth as you plan. A few adjustments turned into recreating the project and.... well I am still going to work with GP in the next day or two. I am curious to see how I will like adding drums and bass into the mix. Going see the re-release of Avatar tonight!! Never seen it on the big screen. But I will tonight... if it goes as planned!!

    Working for a paper company? I'll refrain from Dunder Miflin references, as I'm sure others in your life haven't. While I did stay in marketing -- and now I'm a business owner -- I completely relate to what you're saying. At most small and mid size companies, the marketing department really doesn't engage in marketing, they're doing the 4th P of marketing, promotion (i.e., Product, Place, Price and Promotion). Most people have enormous misunderstanding about the function of marketing strategy vs marketing communications. The former is the one that would make strategy decisions, for example, when we discussed BCG's metaphor "cash cow." That actually pertains to a product marketing strategy. But the majority of small and mid-size companies mislabel promotions teams -- they handle advertising, sales support collateral, websites and PR -- as marketing, when they're actually doing marketing communications. The filed can absolutely be very filled with large egos and narcissists, like sales and the c-suite cultures are famous for being. I developed a reputation as kind of a geeky, anti-typical marketing director from writing and speaking. But yeah, going to events, even ones I've keynoted, I've often felt more at home with my friends from other departments. I have a business of my own now and the closest friends I've had from my corporate days were from IT, analysis, electrical engineering and finance. The classes I found in school I enjoyed the most were actually philosophy and religion classes. My niece, after she received a graduate degree in communications visited me and inquired about a job at the company I worked at at the time. I had a very good relationship with the head of the communications (PR) department and could have gotten her a well paying job, But I had a long talk with her about the reality of ethics in the business world. After that, she told me not to help her get in at the company I worked at (a very well known brand) and went back to school to pursue a PhD. Over a decade later, she is a college professor and loves her work. For me, I always took the marketing communications side of my skillset -- because I have held positions in business strategy, marketing strategy and marketing communications -- and have advised a lot of charities that help people. But frankly, part of me has done it because I always wished I did something more significant to make the world a better place to make up for what I wasn't doing in my career. I try to do that with my business today and I did my best to do that when I was a director, by promoting diversity and ethics by developing strategies that pushed companies to behave more ethically -- never making the case based on ethics, but instead, making cases on what business people care about, the bottom line, money. But the reality is, if you're not the CEO, you only have so much control over what the business does, and my experience is, the more senior you get in any corporation, the more you see things that, if you have strong ethics, will present concerns. I see that in my son. Very much like a young version of me. So, while I have a bunch of former colleagues who are now CMOs who can help him if he pursued the same field as me, I think he's better off in a field that's more cerebral and less ethically challenging on a regular basis. It was more than a decade ago when I closed out my publication on marketing that received accolades from every ivy league school except one. And, of course, no longer an employee and over a decade old, those accolades mean nothing professionally anymore. But one actually still means something to me. The head of Wharton's ethics department wrote that every business student at Wharton should be reading my writing because of my "profound understanding of business ethics." It blew me away because I never actually wrote about ethics. Why? Because I knew, in a business career, when you move into senior roles, companies see managers obsessed with ethics as potential whistleblowers. So while I would have loved writing about ethics, I deliberately avoided it. But somehow, this professor saw that drive in me. In the last ten years I've stopped doing public speaking, except for talks at some colleges, funny enough to marketing graduate students at UChicago and Northwestern and now my son is a senior in HS deciding on a college major and knowing how similar we are in terms of ethics, I have told him that I think he might find the ethics challenges of a career in marketing and the superficial nature of many of the personalities in the field to not be a great fit with his values. That said, as big data and data analytics have become increasingly important in the field, it's less of a Mad Man mentality than it was in my early career. All of that said, my son is contemplating engineering, architecture, science/meteorology/astronomy and physical therapy, I want him to do whatever makes him happy, but I am guessing science/meterology/astronomy, archeology or physical therapy would be the most fulfilling fields for him.

    I just checked. For the library in the OP: Kontakt 5.8.1 Full Retail (or later) Required. Kontakt full can be installed on 2 or 3 computers. https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us/articles/209544789--Installing-Native-Instruments-Products-on-a-New-Computer- I don’t see any indication that the license for Kontakt Player is any different, even if it’s free. Note that there’s no actually enforcement of this licensing, so technically, you can install more than the EULA allowed licensed number of instances.

    Unfortunately I don't have an answer but this "reinstalling Windows" bit is a monumental waste of time. I can't for the life of me figure out why so many people do this.

    Glad I could help you sort it out. I knew about the issue because I had a project or two that exhibited it at one point. Well done to narrow it down to a plug-in; it took me a lonnnnng time to figure out that that was what was causing it. It didn't occur to me to hit the "FX" button. Since changing plug-in parameters will flip Cakewalk's "dirty" bit (the indicator that says a save-worthy change has been made), my guess is that somehow, these plug-ins are changing their own parameters and reporting that to Cakewalk. It would make sense with a plug-in that like an analyzer or dynamic EQ, constantly adapt to whatever signal is going through them. Reporting to the host that something has changed in the plug-in when it actually hasn't is what I would call a bug. The only events that should trigger that reporting are ones where the user is interacting with it by changing control states or values.

    I will check with @Greg Schlaepfer tomorrow to see if he can do a preset video. Like you, I find preset videos super important when researching sample libraries. But today is the birthday of Orange Tree Samples founder/CEO, Greg Schlaepfer. so if anyone wants to wish Greg a happy birthday, please do. Besides, being an innovator for guitar and bass sample libraries, Greg's one of the kindest and most decent people I've ever met. Happy birthday, Greg!
