    On the plus side, I reckon that rather than being "over" this will lead to something of a renaissance of it's use by the many, many people who already have it and have had it for so many years that they have largely forgotten all about it in favour of the newer, shinier things that have come their way, They will fall in love with it all over again.... Because, as we know....... Wait for it..... A little longer...... Absynth makes the heart grow fonder. No, you get your coat.

    New in Version 5.3 The update to Version 5.3 contains improvements and bug fixes, which is why we recommend it to all users. Moreover, Melodyne 5.3 is required for ARA integration into Pro Tools 2022.09. New features and improvements Surround: In both ARA and Transfer modes, Melodyne can now also be used for the editing of tracks in the standard surround formats. ARA in Pro Tools: Melodyne 5.3 comes with all the technical prerequisites for ARA integration into Pro Tools from Version 2022.09 upwards and thus makes a significantly improved workflow in Pro Tools possible. Preferences: When Melodyne is employed for the first time as a plug-in, it loads the set of keyboard shortcuts corresponding to the DAW you are using. Bug fixes Recording: In the stand-alone implementation of Melodyne, you can now also use a recording device with a mono input (e.g. a MacBook microphone). ARA in Cubase: When moving an ARA event to a track that is not selected, the selection in Melodyne is now retained. Pro Tools: The position of the playback cursor in Melodyne is now correctly updated even when playback is stopped. AAX in Pro Tools: When bouncing/committing, Melodyne now correctly evaluates the offline setting. The Correct Pitch macro: When the macro was applied to a very large number of notes simultaneously, Melodyne would sometimes freeze. This no longer happens. Preferences: Previously, in ARA mode, the keyboard shortcut for “Playback Selection” was erroneously listed under “Others” instead of under “Transport Bar”. This has been fixed. The Note Inspector: The input field for Sibilant Balance now reliably accepts input even when multiple tracks are being edited simultaneously. ARA in Cakewalk by Bandlab: Under certain circumstances, Melodyne would crash when loading a session. This has been fixed. Ableton Live: The cause of random crashes when Melodyne was running in Live 11.1.1 under macOS Monterey on a Mac with an M1 chip has been detected and eliminated. Note editing: The “Restore Original” commands in the Edit menu now behave more consistently in the stand-alone implementation, in the Transfer plug-in and under ARA.

    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.

    I had a whole bunch of really cool Rapture patches I created. I thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if I sold them. And then Cakewalk went out of business. I also had a few cool sounds for RMV. Then I realized I had a lot of cool Absynth patches and there's no longer Absynth. I'm thinking, maybe I should go around to synth developers and pay me not to develop patches for them. "Hey, Xfer, I see that you've got a nice synth called Serum there. It'd be a shame if anything were to happen to it..."

    Is how I feel. On one hand there’s more peace and quiet due to the lack of a zillion deals waiting to be checked. On the other I’m often feeling I’m missing out on some incredibly worthwhile ones, never to see the light of day as the man isn’t here to find them. Don’t know what’s worse, though

    Black Rooster Audio: NEW FREE PLUG-IN RO-GOLD VINTAGE PLATE REVERB https://blackroosteraudio.com/en/landing/ro-gold Introducing our newest free plug-in: the RO-GOLD vintage plate reverb. This physically modeled plug-in captures the true tone of a solid gold plate reverb, turning any signal into 24k magic. The most luxurious and exclusive vintage room effect meets modern-day features for the highest-quality sound and optimal usability. With only a few, simple-to-use parameters, it has never been easier to achieve an authentic vintage reverb sound. Gold Plate Reverb RO-GOLD A brief history The RO-GOLD was faithfully modeled after an iconic hardware classic, and upgraded with a 24k gold plate, for the most luxurious vintage reverberation experience. Our plate simulation approach allows us to authentically capture the analog unit's sound and feel as closely as possible while still including a few unexpected twists - all in the beautifully designed, easy-to-use package that is the RO-GOLD. Engineers have experimented with foil and metal plates to reproduce expensive reverb rooms since the 50s. However, installing and controlling a real metal plate reverb has never been easily attainable, nor has it been readily available to every producer or small studio - especially when it comes to real gold plates. As it often happens, this type of hardware remained exclusive to a select few elite studios for a long time. Nevertheless, plate reverberation is audible in many 50s and 60s hit songs, where engineers extensively used this technique. Not only does the RO-GOLD bring you the sound of these sought-after hardware classics, but it also captures the true tone of a solid gold plate, which would cost millions to recreate in real life. This 24k gem allows you to set up your own retro room sound, that is both warm and mellow. With only a few, simple-to-use parameters, it has never been easier to achieve an authentic vintage reverb sound.

    Enjoy Greg 🙂 This is a case of a developer doing the right thing.. so often they offer freebies for people buying something and leave out the loyal customers that jumped in earlier. Full credit to Steinberg on this one. They get a big tick in my book for that.

    I just downloaded, installed and tried out the free version of the DS Drum RCS Essentials acoustic drum kit (yeah, don't blame me for it's long-winded name that really doesn't communicate anything of value) from a new developer called Red Pack Drums. It's a KONTAKT library that, I believe, requires the full version of KONTAKT and this is an excellent quality acoustic drum kit for free. It's a sophisticated, detailed/deep sampled drum kit. love that you can swap snares and tune the snares in the free version. It features a wide variety of mapping options, including for popular drum plugins like Superior Drums as well as V-Drums and GM. They call the free library a DEMO, but it's one full drum kit with two snares, a wood (mahogany) snare and a brass snare. As a former semi-pro drummer, I'm very picky about drum libraries and this is easily one of the best free drum libraries I know of (the competition, off hand, for a very high quality free detailed, multisampled drum kit libraries include Steven Slate Drums and the Sennheiser Kit for KONTAKT -- both are are worth having. I don't love the toms on this kit, but for a freebie, they're still nice. While many KONTAKT drum libraries are a disappointment when it comes to the GUI, while this one isn't my version of ideal, it's not bad. Everything you need it there and once you figure everything it out, which doesn't take long, it's easy to understand. It doesn't look like the standard KONTAKT GUI -- and for a drum library, I think this is much better than the standard KONTAKT GUI. You can easily figure out how to do drum mapping, use the mixer, tune the drums, swap out snares and find pre-made MIDI drum grooves. That's superb for a freebie. I highly recommend downloading it. I don't know if I am ready to buy another drum library for its current sale price of €139, but I definitely think this developer has done a very good job. Don't sleep on this freebie. The ones this good don't always last. https://www.redpackdrums.com/product-page/the-official-ds-drum-library You can find an audio demo of the Mahagony Kit they use for the freebie on this page (and no, they didn't do a great job of putting the site together and organizing the freebie page (there's no audio files on that page), but you can hear it on this page. https://www.redpackdrums.com/dsdrum-kontakt

    SampleTekk has started a deals site called SampleTekk Deals and is promoting it by giving away their MONO piano, Singularis, reg. price $79 USD for free and includes a KONTAKT and SFZ version. The KONTAKT version requires the full version of KONTAKT. The SFZ version can be loaded in free SFZ players and the developer notes he tested it in the free SFZ sample player plugin, Sforzando. I'm on my phone at the moment, so I haven't downloaded this library yet, but I have most of SampleTekk's pianos, and they're a very good sample developer that specializes in piano libraries. The version of this they sell is available for the full version of KONTAKT and in the SFZ format. A video promo for the piano. This the link to get the free piano: https://www.sampletekkdeals.com To skip the home page and go directly to the freebie page: https://sampletekkdeals.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=66 This is their regular website's product page with information on the Singularis piano -- and yes, that name sounds a lot like an allergy medicine, but SampleTekk makes very good piano libraries, so don't miss out on this freebie: https://www.sampletekk.com/grand-pianos&product_id=294

    Hello to all my CW friends! It's been a long 6 months since I've had much spare time, but here I am with a new song. I recently purchased Waves Harmony and used it on this song to experiment a bit. It's fresh off the press and can be found here: https://soundclick.com/r/s8mawa I managed to listen to some of the new songs here from time to time, and I've been very impressed. I would like to have commented many times, but time has been precious this year. Thanks in advance for your time and good ears! Lynn 9/28/22 Thanks to my co-producers here, I remixed the percussion, smoothed a few rough edges, and slightly rearranged the beats. I also lessened the f/x on my vocals a bit and raised the bass gtr a tad. I think this helped to get me closer to the end.

    I thought I'd try an easy Hendrix song while waiting on inspiration for an original. It turned out to be a Lot more of a challenge than I had anticipated. I adlibbed the leads but tried to hit some of the high points. Any advice on the mix would be Greatly appreciated. Thank You .. mark This is a REMIX Thanks for your help ! mark

    So they reacted to the bad reception of the new voucher limits by making vouchers entirely useless and in turn making sales worthless as well. I'm conditioned to pay a maximum of $15 for a PA plugin and around $30 for the newest stuff only. Needless to say, I haven't bought a PA plugin in months, whereas it used to be like 2-3 a month on average. I imagine the same is true for quite a lot of people. They really shot themselves in the foot with all of these attempts. And Dirk being all "trust us, it's going to be amazing!!!" on Facebook just comes off as laughable.

    A little while ago someone on this forum commented that all my music was the same and that I never sing, this should set that record straight. As the longer term member here know Wookiee signing is dangerous, it not lethal, to none Wookiee life forms, which explains that in the main. However in this tune, created in CbB, there is a Wookiee vocal that could be fatal to some.

    @daveiv This may prove to be the best $29 I spent on a program in quite a long time. Thank you for posting this. I am finally getting some time to dig into this gem. And after a few hours with it I realized that I should have done this a long long time ago. Working on a song I have already written, just to get myself familiar with the features and establish some kind of work flow, I am finding that it is a lot easier to do this than I thought it would be. Took me a little while to get going, and after one you tube video (importing a audio file (that's a killer feature!) ) I have got the strumming and picking down on the tabs just like I am playing it!!! All the little nuances and all!! That has me flipping out!! This is just a little three chord deal, but I got the tab playing in perfect sync with the audio file!! WHAT DA >>>!!! What I did was put the chords in trk 1. On trk 2 I have the picking. Trk #2 is where I really started to see some of the potential of this program. This program makes it really easy to do a trial and error type workflow, which works really well for me. (I can see myself humming a idea and getting it down relatively easy.) I put the notes I know I play on the tab. But it was really stiff and not flowing. So I imported a audio file of the song I have, lined it up and got it in sync (it ain't hard at all!) and then was able to get the tab/notation exactly like I play it!! I was freaking out!! Really!! I never thought this would be possible. But it is, and it ain't that hard. There is a learning curve to be sure. But it's really not that steep. I still have a lot to learn, but I can only see this getting better. And better! I really can see that my whole work-flow for writing and recording just changed tonight. At $29, if your a guitar player, and write your own stuff, this is no-brainer deal!!

    The long promise you have been waiting for. As an owner of a Liquid Notes license from Re-Compose, you should have previously received an email from us regarding its future. In that email, we mentioned that Liquid Notes was now owned by W. A. Production and would no longer be supported/developed. We also informed you that W. A. Production would provide you with a future product containing technology from the Liquid Notes plugin.

    Cakewalk has build-in MIDI arp. In addition to "usual" for arps sequences, it can use custom note sequences as the basis. The only supported format for these sequences is PTN. Cakewalk by itself can load PTN files, as MIDI clips and as a part of arp configuration. Cakewalk also can save arp configuration (including the pattern) into ARP files. But for some (which?) reason Cakewalk can't create PTN files nor extract them from ARP files. The following utility tries to provide missed functionality. It is command line program which accept single file name as the argument: if the argument has an extension "arp" (or "ARP"), it tries to extract PTN file from it. The extraction is verbatim (PTN files are saved "as is" in ARP files) if the argument has an extension "mid" (or "MID"), it tries convert it into PTN file. Note that conversion is not "1 to 1", only Notes, Wheel and CC events are converted and all other parameters in resulting PTN file are constant (I don't know what they specify). In my tests that is sufficient for arp operations, please let me know if I have overseen something (I mean the result does not work as expected) Background information about PTN files. PTN are "Project 5" proprietary format to store MIDI clips. In general it seems like the format support all information in MIDI clips (and some extra, f.e. flam). But only a part of that information is used by Cakewalk arp. Converting MIDI clip into PTN. Prepare a MIDI clip, by loading existing PTN file (f.e. File/Import/MIDI..., select "P5 pattern" as file type) or from scratch. Original tempo will be reproduced with 1/32 setting in the arp (note that factory ARP do not follow that rule, so even if you load PTN extracted from an ARP into the same ARP, the tempo can be different). The first note defines the "origin" for transposing the whole clip according to actual note on the track. Select the clip. File/Export.../MIDI groove clip. Use the utility with created MID file name as parameter.
