    Seems free version of this thing is not supporting VST so... I would say to Roland 'no thanks'... https://www.roland.com/us/products/zenbeats/specifications/ We could proudly claim nothing is able to beat CbB between of free DAWs Only thing is lack of CbB on other platforms than Win and they could rules for ever

    Going against all medical, psychological, and moral advice, I went ahead and got Neo Piano/ installed it (18.4GB). There are 5 piano's included and the registration process is a bit of a pain (once the initial VST is installed, then I had to email the developer my machine ID that generated by the VST and then they sent me the 'key codes' for each instrument). Not being a pianist or very knowledgeable in pianos, I do like the sounds of each piano and they all have their own characteristics. The tones can be customized to suit your fancy, but generally not very bright (like the EZ Keys Grand). However, you can adjust that in the Key Dynamics section and make it brighter. The included reverb isn't all that, but then again I have some good reverbs in my toolbox. Overall, I'm happy with what I paid for this and will try to use it in a track....of course, it may not be your cup of tea or up to your standards.

    Does this mean we run the installer then have to UN-install all the plugins we don't own? Not that I'm complaining about an update, but I guess I'm complaining... 🙂 P. I DO like my T-Racks plugins though, just not all the "mess".

    The H3000 Factory does not include all the algorithms from the hardware unit. Eventide broke out the algorithms into several of their plug-ins including the H910, H949, Octavox and Quadravox (and probably the H3000 delay, IDK my H3000 did not have multi-band delay but it was an older unit). The H3000 Factory is OK but of the plug-ins currently on sale I use the H910 most often.

    What I can never understand about PA is when you click on the "Image" it shows a big pic of some DAW and the plugin inside that. To me that makes no sense. If I want to see a DAW, I'll go to that website and look at their images!! IOW, if your going to show an image that bi, make it all of your plugin!!

    The modeled vs sampled discussion is something that can never really be resolved. People should get what they want. I have a template I will be working on forever where I put similar instruments and presets in folders. The other day I put my favorite Keyscape Wurli patch in. I then loaded the Arturia Wurli in. Now the Arturia Wurli has tons of presets and most of them are very distorted or effect sounds. The sampled Keyscape sounds incredible. It sounds like a Wurli. The Arturia Wurli sounds sort of Wurli-ish. It is so unbelievably terrible next to Keyscape that it didn't make it into my template. Now somebody else can use those Wurl presets in Arturia and enjoy them for what they are. But they don't stand up to the samples in Keyscape. I just got Modo Bass and think it is an incredible program. But there is one bass in there that is a model of a Rickenbacker bass I owned for ten years. And I'm sorry, but it's not good. The Scarbee is better. But that's not why you buy Modo Bass. It gives you infinite options that no sampled bass gives you. Also in my template is a folder with 80s chimey digital piano sounds. I owned a DX7 for a long time and I like that stuff. There's the great MKS-20 from Keyscape, a few select presets from UVI digital library, Synth Anthology has some of the best stuff in there because it has Kawaii K3, which is really different from everything else. But the Arturia DX7? Nothing that's good. The free Dexed is SO much better. Probably because freeware can emulate Yamaha tech with more freedom than Arturia can. Maybe they have to make it a little more different because they're selling? No idea. Anyway, for the sound I was looking for, one of the most popular sounds in a decade,there should be a freaking good preset on a DX7 model. Syntronik really blows almost everything away. Because Syntronik has most of T-RackS and Amplitube built in and so the presets come loaded with some amazing effects. Syntronik takes this sound and makes something new with it. One of the best DX7 libraries out there is FM2, a free one on iOS. I love that. To me it comes down to what sounds you're looking for for the music you make. Stack the sounds from sampled vs modeled in your DAW and pick what you like best. The answer will change based on the sound you're looking for. You may prefer a modeled piano to a sampled piano--a lot of people do. When it comes to synths it may help if you've actually owned the hardware. For example, the Korg Collection M1 is to my ears the same as my M1. I think they just took the brains of the M1 and put it into iM1. So that's not modelling--it's Korg to Korg. Anything in Arturia where they have a relationship with the original developer should be great. But who really cares if a synth is "authentic" or not? Having all the customizing options in Arturia may over-ride that. Just as with Modo Bass or Modo Drums. I think Synth Anthology II is awesome and I am very glad I bought it. Its presets will find many, many spots in my template, because they have been curated as best of the best.

    The only important part is written in English, the man has problems with REAC in the latest CbB version. I think it is also not correct to claim that "nobody knows" the language of the largest country in the world 😉 Yes, it is not in the list of official languages of current "Cakewalk home". But since "Cakewalk country" has 4 official languages, I think it is ok to use different languages in this forum, no?

    I had not heard of this forum before your mention of it, M, so I wandered over to see what it was about, liked what I saw and signed up. Thanks for suggesting it. Definitely a good place for orchestral aficionados like me I should mention, though, I personally have never felt at all ill-served by the folks on this forum. I only do classical/symphonic stuff exclusively, but when I've posted my music, folks here have been generous with their time and commentary. And it's been really appreciated.

    After a while, the separation of selection and focus becomes so ingrained that you don't even think about all the things it makes possible. Here are a couple that I'm aware of using regularly; - A selected track is the source for a copy/cut while the focused track is the target for a paste. Separating the two functions facilitates copy/cut/paste from one track/lane to another with keyboard shortcuts. - Separate focus lets you inspect and modify parameters on any track/bus without losing a selection you've made on another track or multiple tracks. If focus and selection were the same thing, the track inspector could only work when a single track/bus was selected.

    I bought a few 8dio things over the last few months, mainly the BF sales.....I'm feeling very 'meh' about all of them. Very variable in quality - some are massive CPU hogs or take aggggeeesss to looooaaaaddddd. A lot of them are not that inspiring or flexible and the documentation is very weak. If I had my time again I wouldn't have bothered. as always, just MO Gonna compare apples and oranges, but for those with SD3 - https://www.timespace.com/products/toontrack-sdx-orchestral-percussion absolutely first rate - and 120 instruments - up to 11-channel surround - midi files - great documentation. Makes that 8dio package look like a freebie - 100% worth the extra https://www.toontrack.com/product/orchestral-percussion-sdx/ watch/listen to the demos (I don't work for toontrack honestly !)

    That I have not been contributing much here since September last year, I know a couple of tunes have been posted but they were nearly done. The reason is that in September I was diagnosed with skin cancer, it appears that three inches of red-brown fur and a heavy jacket is not sufficient to protect the Wookiee skin. Perhaps I also need to check the UV shields on the Millennium Falcon. Anyway two surgeries later and a 6.5cm by 5cm by 1.5cm deep (3" by 2" by 1/2") hole in the forearm of my right fore paw has limited my ability to do anything very much other than listen, which I have done quite a bit and found it to be quite enjoyable. Typing or using the mouse has been and still is quite painful, as to playing keys or my guitars impossible. Anyways thanks for all the music and hopefully now I have received the all clear, for this location, once the wound heals some more I will be back making noises and commenting to you guys and girls about your music. Thanks for keeping this furry alien from total madness with your music.

    Someone mentioned "unfinished project," well it seems that can be said for just about anything in Cakewalk. ACT is a big example. I would like to see it fully developed, no, revamped so that it has greater more dependable control integration. Matrix View needs attention, Staff View really needs a lot of work, etc. I think BandLab should take a look at each feature/component and improve upon them one at a time. And take a break from adding new features for a while, until the existing features have been improved. I wouldn't mind that. Make them robust and fully functional. Not that Cakewalk is not workable, but it doesn't take much to reach its limitations in a number of cases. It still feels a little fragile each time I work with it. Like just one more move will irreversibly corrupt my project. I could make a complete list things, but I would have to give it more thought. Kind regards, tecknot

    Very nice piece Wookie! If it were me, I'd add some type of quick arpeggiated bursts, like "clouds" (wish I had a better description) at the end of a few of the melody phrases during the first 2/3. Glad to see you back on the keys. Dan

    I know this is an older video but it sort of walks you through how I used Philharmonik 2 to improvise a short theme. This is with a previous version of SONAR but the workflow should be similar.

    Thanks all of you for listening and commenting. I was a bit tired last evening and I think my ears played a few tricks on me. I have to agree with the mid heavy comments when listening back today. Thank you for confirming that. I will revisit the mix and knock down the mids some.
