    What is "best" ? For me, yeah - absolutely it's the best. But I've been well locked in with the Cakewalk ecosystem for years, it does what I want and it's super solid for me. There's obviously things I'd love to see added and various bugs/shortcomings that I'd love to see addressed, like we all want to see, but for me it's the best. On the other hand, ask on, say, the Tracktion forums and I bet you get a very different answer. The best DAW is the one that lets you get the job done the fastest and easiest, no matter which one it is. That's really it.

    I once met one of the writers of that show and he said when they were spit balling ideas for a new show they were high and thought they should create a euphemism for a brothel (that would get past the censors). Apparently they succeeded. Uncle Joe is piano player/bouncer, the three girls initials are all "B.J." (Bobby Jo, Billie Jo and Betty Jo) and the aunt (Kate) is the madam.

    Voxengo SPAN version 3.10 update is now available for download at https://www.voxengo.com/product/span SPAN is a free real-time “fast Fourier transform” audio spectrum analyzer plugin for professional music and audio production applications. SPAN is available in AudioUnit, AAX, VST, and VST3 plugin formats, for macOS and Windows computers. The list of changes in version 3.10: Internal channel letters were changed to numbers. Level meters can now display input channel names instead of internal channel indices. Added "Stereo Swap" and "Stereo To Mono" routing presets. Added AudioComponents interface to AudioUnit as the ".rsrc" interface may be deprecated in the future. SPAN provides you with a very flexible “mode” system which you can use to setup your spectrum analyzer preferences. You may specify Fourier block size in samples, FFT window overlap percentage, spectrum's visual slope. Beside that you can choose to display secondary spectrum of a desired type (e.g. real-time maximum, all-time maximum). Spectrum can be smoothed out visually for an easier examination.

    Free - 32 patches for Newfangled Audio's Generate and/or Pendulate Edit: fixed link I've decided to share 32 patches that I created for Newfangled Audio's new synths Generate and/or Pendulate. The patches cover a bit of everything (sound FX, Basses, throbbers, gliders, leads, etc). Main restriction is that I ask that you don't distribute the library or post it on other sites - see the EULA in the zip. Have fun, I'm curious as to what you can do with them. Sorry but don't have the time at the moment to throw up audio demos - but feel free to link in your own creations/demos on this thread. If I like it I'll post links to it on my web site. The link for the patches is at the bottom of the page linked above. While it would be nice if you checked the page out - your welcome to just scroll down & grab your copy - and no registration or email address submission is required! Hope that you find it useful. Best regards, ...Steven

    https://www.izotope.com/en/products/neoverb/features.html iZotope has introduced a new smart reverb for music making. Neoverb is an intelligent reverb that uses a real-time Reverb Assistant to help you get a great reverb for any track. From the minds behind Ozone and Nectar, and powered by legendary Exponential Audio technology, iZotope Neoverb is the most intelligent reverb plug-in for music producers. Neoverb gets you to an exciting starting point with a new Reverb Assistant that guides you through settings with a simple four-click process. Create exactly the space you want for vocal and instrument tracks using an intuitive Blend Pad to mix rooms, plates, chambers, and more. Shape and tame reverb using intelligent Pre and Post EQs that listen to your audio and make suggestions, helping you add depth while retaining clarity in your mix. Whether you’re a new producer honing your craft, or a veteran on your latest project, with iZotope Neoverb, you can focus on creativity and leave the trial-and-error behind. Neoverb features Reverb Assistant: Get a great reverb for any track, with an easy four-step Assistant that adjusts iZotope Neoverb’s settings in real time. Create complex, customized reverbs, without spending time in menus. Choose your preferred Size while iZotope Neoverb automatically selects and blends reverb combinations and advanced settings as you move the sliders. Add a little vibe with four different Tone selections that further adjust your reverb to give you dark, airy, bright sounds. Reverb Assistant listens to your audio and makes further EQ suggestions to get the cleanest possible reverb tone. Blend Pad: iZotope Neoverb’s innovative Blend Pad gets you further, faster by helping you visualize and mix three different types of reverbs at once, to create a unique reverb tail that fits your track. Blend different types of reverb together: Add realistic space with Early Reflections and Room, classic environments with Plate, and height and depth with Chamber and Hall. Separate Size controls for each reverb type to let you create epic guitar tones, construct massive drum rooms, or dream up completely exotic spaces to make your mix unique. EQ Section: Get a great reverb sound without using a long plug-in chain, with a fluid EQ section helps you clean your input signal and keeps your reverb tail from overwhelming your mix. Use Unmask to have iZotope Neoverb listen to your reverb settings and make EQ suggestions to help your final result come through clear against the original signal. AutoCut listens for areas of your track that might create unwanted resonances in the reverb and automatically suggests cuts in the Pre-EQ. Masking Meter: Easily keep track of reverb build-up with an intuitive meter that highlights EQ areas you may want to cut from your reverb. Masking Meter communicates with other iZotope plug-ins to show you where reverb is masking other tracks, and is compatible with the following iZotope plug-ins: Neutron 3, Nectar 3, VocalSynth 2, Relay. Advanced Panel: For when you need to tweak a setting, or take a closer look at Reverb Assistant’s results, the Advanced Panel lets you dive as deep as you need to find the exact vibe you’re looking for. Unique Advanced settings for each reverb unlock even more creative possibilities and exciting new spaces to explore. Advanced Controls are set by Reverb Assistant and can be saved as unique presets for later use. Input Smoothing: Keep your dynamics even and avoid artifacts in the reverb tail with one simple control that reduces the sharp, percussive transients in your reverb. Modulation (Mod): Neoverb includes a modulation panel to give you even more control over your reverb tail. Two different modes offer subtle modulation to avoid buildup, or a classic chorus for a more pronounced mixing effect. Resizable: Built for the demands of the modern music producer, window resizability ensures iZotope Neoverb fits in your workflow—and your screen. Presets: iZotope Neoverb comes packed with over 100 inspiring presets created by iZotope’s team of professional sound designers. Explore presets for vocals, guitars, experimental spaces, and more. Neoverb is on sale at iZotope and Plugin Boutique at the introductory pricing of $199 USD until November 10th, 2020 (regular $249 USD). Owners of ANY paid iZotope product can crossgrade for $99 USD during the promotion. Neoverb is also included in the new Music Production Suite 4 alongside Ozone 9 Advanced, Tonal Balance Control 2 , Neutron 3 Advanced , VocalSynth 2, Insight 2, Relay, Exponential Audio R4 , Exponential Audio NIMBUS , and a Groove3 One Year All-Access Pass. It is on sale for $599 USD (regular $999 USD), with upgrades starting from $199 USD.

    Thanks for the kind words 😊 Often the quickest way to get to the bottom of a problem rather than sending endless messages, is to observe it and do tests directly on the users PC. In this case Greg had an issue that he had reported here and on facebook where he was getting crackling when moving his mouse only over the bus view. I had some other customers over the years report issues like this but since this was a more specific report I thought it was worth investigating further. He has a modern I9 and the project wasn't overly complex although he had a lot of cpu expensive plugins. I was unable to reproduce the issue even with his project file so I did some analysis of the code that is affected by mouse movement on buses and spotted some obvious inefficiencies. I did some optimizations to the hit test logic that makes it use a lot less CPU. After I sent a build to Greg it appeared to completely solve his problem and he is able to run the project at 128 samples now with no artifacts on mouse movement or scrolling. The strange thing to me is that despite having fixed it, I believe the original issue to be a system specific problem with one of his drivers. MOTU, UAD or the NVIDIA driver. Its hard to say which one caused it, but load on the UI should in general NOT affect audio streaming on a multi-core CPU since the audio engine runs on high priority threads that are not gated by the UI. IOW the UI can be 100% busy and you shouldn't hear artifacts. The only way the audio device would get blocked is if somehow this activity blocked the audio driver at the kernel level. Whatever the cause is, I'm happy that the improvements addressed his issue and the fixes should improve performance across the board as well!

    Just as the title says. You can rename any type of track from the Console View by double clicking on the name field. Is should be the same for midi tracks when working in PRV. Please consider it, Thank you!

    Thks Peter for the kind words , it really warms me up , in fact i don t know how to make short pointless videos lol ... Reality is i m not a youtuber but a long time producer and what i record is what i do when i chill with friends in studio ... so it s like i m just chilling with you guyz sharing my humble way of doing things ....sure i have the time and langage variable to handle but more important , reviews go flowing when the product is really good ...and that s why i never do review on stuff i don t like , simpl as that , or stuff not brîging really something on the table . What i said is true from start to finish , amplitube used to be my playground , i bought the leslie for the drive and color for my drums more than guitars that i use way less !! With this release , it really answers a real need : a plyground with your process , the catalog from ik is consistant , homgenous and musical in that sens that its alwyz serving beauty in sound! you guyz been on fire lately , just be really sure to push requests , it serves the product and the firm as much as users .

    I have just upgraded from K12 to K13U so I have tons of new stuff to check out, GR6 being one of them. So I haven't had as long as I would have liked to give it a thorough test. In the other thread I said that the new amp models are excellent and I also thought the old ones sounded better. That's probably due to what Magic Russ says above (always in HQ mode, better matched cabs etc.). It would be good if they re-did some of the old models using the new modeling technique and they seem to be open to the idea of adding new stuff as their webpage says... Looking at the input filter section it's clearly not just aimed at guitar but as a general FX processor and it seems like a useful update over the old version in that respect. There are a lot of good presets including artist ones with a promise of more to come in future. I was getting some really interesting sounds with the Flair Arpeggiator preset. There are a bunch of modifiers such as LFO which you can assign to almost anything for example a LFO assigned to the tone control of an amp. The new Softube effects are a welcome addition as are the new matched amp cabs which use IRs from Ownhammer and 3 Sigma Audio. There's also a demo version --> hhttps://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/guitar/guitar-rig-6-pro/downloads/ ...and the manual can also be downloaded from that link.
