    The actual discontinuation of support for VST2 plugins only applies to Steinberg products (i.e. Cubase). I would think that virtually all other DAW manufacturers will continue to recognize VST2 plugins until there just aren't that many left in circulation. <rant on> It bothers me a lot that a private company controls a standard as ubiquitous as the (VST) audio plugin interface. Why isn't this an open standard supported by an independent group? I don't think that I'm the only one annoyed by some of the decisions made by Steinberg in the past, like initially crippling Midi support in the VST3 interface (they eventually backed off on that). VST is just an interface! There is no required code behind it. Steinberg should relinquish control of it, or a new 'open' standard should be developed... Fat chance that will catch on, though 😒 Ok, all done. <rant off>

    We are happy to release Surge XT 1.0 today. Surge XT 1.0 is available at https://surge-synthesizer.github.io. It installs with a new plugin ID ("Surge XT") side by side with our version from April 2021, Surge 1.9. Surge XT contains a massive number of new features and infrastructural improvements. You can read the full changelog at https://surge-synthesizer.github.io/changelog/ but the highlights are: * The entire synth has been ported to the JUCE framework, making for far more reliable plugins and behavior, as well as providing us loads of dev tools * We have expanded the power of the modulation section, introducing vector modulators and a new Formula modulator * We have expanded the FX section, allowing twice as many FX per patch and adding new FX including a Spring Reverb and several new Airwindows * We have expanded the Waveshapers, going from 5 waveshaper models to nearly 50, and added a new filter model * We've added patch search and patch favorites to the patch browser * We've added loads of microtuning features, including an extensive tuning editor and analyzer * We've added a modulation list which lets you navigate and modify the entire modulation list in one view * We've fixed innumerable bugs and added many many UI features, including more use of drag and drop, windows which can tear out, and keybindings * We've added masses of amazing new patches using the new features. These are all in the "third party" section. These new contributions push Surge to spaces we never thought possible, with some amazing electronic pads, physically modeled real instruments, and more. We really encourage you to spend some time in those third party presets. * And finally, we made the entire UI accessible to screen readers and other accessible tools for near-complete accessible navigation and editing We hope you enjoy the release! If you find something, please hit us on Discord or GitHub and enjoy making music with Surge!

    I know there are some serious orchestrators here, and this content isn't targeted at them. This will appeal more to the casual composer who just dabbles in pseudo-classical genres. Like me. Anne-Kathrin Dern is a working composer out of Los Angeles, originally from Germany (like another famous composer we all know and love, whose company she once worked for). Her background includes creating sample libraries for CineSamples, so she's very knowledgeable about that stuff. She's been doing this quite a while, despite her apparent young age. No, you won't recognize most of the movies she's done; they are third-tier flicks like Hallmark Christmas specials and kid's shows. But she's done a lot of them, makes a living at it and knows her sh*t. The channel's content ranges from orchestration/composition tips to library reviews to how-to techniques to the recording process. It's the latter category I find most interesting, as she explains how a cue gets from ITB mockup to live orchestra. Plus she's way cuter than Rick Beato.

    You Don't Know Jack Schitt? Many people are at a loss for a response when someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt." Now you can intellectually handle the situation. Jack is the only son of Awe Schitt and O. Schitt. Awe Schitt, the fertilizer magnate, married O. Schitt, a partner of Kneedeep &. Schitt Inc. In turn, Jack Schitt married Noe Schitt, and the deeply religious couple produced 6 children: Holie Schitt, Fulla Schitt, Giva Schitt, Bull Schitt, and the twins: Deep Schitt and Dip Schitt. Against her parents' objections, Deep Schitt married Dumb Schitt, a high school drop out. After being married 15 years, Jack and Noe Schitt divorced. Noe Schitt later married Mr.Sherlock, and because her kids were living with them she wanted to keep her previous name. She was known as Noe Schitt-Sherlock. Dip Schitt married Loda Schitt and they produced a nervous son, Chicken Schitt. Fulla Schitt and Giva Schitt were inseparable throughout childhood and subsequently married the Happens brothers in a dual ceremony. The wedding announcement in the newspaper announced the Schitt-Happens wedding. The Schitt-Happens children were Dawg, Byrd, and Hoarse. Bull Schitt, the prodigal son, left home to tour the world. He recently returned from Italy with his new bride, Piza Schitt. So now if someone says, "You don't know Jack Schitt", you can correct them. Not only do you know Jack, you know his whole family!

    Please don't. At least not unless you're testing it in a virtual machine. USB drives are the perfect attack vector for malware, because they automatically run software as soon as you plug them in. Yes, it's a real thing. Think about it: what do the sellers expect to get out of this? They have to know they won't make any money on SSD sales, since burned customers will be returning them and Walmart will drop the product after complaints roll in. I predict you'll start seeing warnings pop up about how your system has been compromised, with a helpful 800 number to "Microsoft Support".

    This group (Babylonwaves) has been working on mappings of articulations for years. For one purchase of about $97 - Version 8 just released - you get Sound Variations in Studio One 5+ mapped for more than 600 libraries or instruments. A whole package of 600+ library articulations specifically mapped to Studio One 5+ Sound Variations. So instead of manually typing in these mappings you can get all of these in one quick install. It’s pretty cool! Time is money - so it’s a fantastic deal even if not on discount. Example software and instruments are too many to list. Okay, here’s one. The Orange tree libraries - all of those guitars and their many articulations. All wired up and ready to go in Studio One. The list goes on and on - Heavyocity, Spitfire, Native Instruments… https://www.babylonwaves.com/studio-one/ If you click on the 9,000 Templates link on that page you get the full list of the many products it has included. Admittedly it leans very much into orchestral libraries but it also covers a good number of non-orchestral products - like guitar libraries and some key libraries. Forgot to mention they strive hard to make this as easy to use as possible. One thing to point out is that visiting the Babylonwaves site on first visit asks you to accept cookies just to see their website. It’s well worth the visit.

    Unify is a great idea! It can host a variety of plugin formats, including VST2, and can then present itself to a host as VST3. But just pointing out that this latest announcement only affects Steinberg hosts and VST2. So for anyone else, including me, that is NOT using a Steinberg host, then you can relax for now... at least until your host of choice decides to bail out...

    Here's my new video. I was trying to make music out of my comfort zone. I've fooled around with XO, but never actually finished any music with it. Turns out you can't play it into your DAW, you have to output wavs. The cool thing is that you can output out all the stems. And because it's XO, I didn't just use Delhia de France's sounds like loops--I was able to put all these noises I've collected into the drum parts. But definitely XO and de France got this project started. Once I saw Bettie dancing to her beats, it was a go. I thought it was worth a shot to try to get Realitone Blue to sing "Beh-tee," and I think it worked out pretty well. It's hard for me to think of this piece without it. At the end, I even have two Blues singing harmony. But the best thing (as with my previous video) is Evolution Series' Brontë. This is such a cool VI. I expect I'll be using it a lot. I think it kicks the ***** of the competition. So beautiful. I wondered if I would ever get round to using Boz Digital's El Clapo and Das Boot, but they are in this too. There's a few bars of Butch Vig at the beginning too. I did think for a while about making this a binaural mix, but I decided it was too complicated for that. But my experience with binaural led me to make this kind of nutzo spacially.

    Here's my first mix/ master of track 2 from my upcoming album. This started out from noodling on EZBass. I gave my idea to my bass player who made it legit & it turned into this retro-funk type track. Enjoy-

    it's fairly annoying for all those older plugins that are not and may never be updated to VST3...and it's currently quite a long list (superior drummer 3 ? soundtoys ? UVI ? XLN AD/AK, lots of NI plugs etc etc). Some will be updated for sure but probably as a paid version upgrade. $$$ There is no real technical reason to do it but they've been wanting to dump VST2 for years and they have got a bit frustrated waiting for the plugin developers to move to VST3...so they are forcing the issue by setting an arbitrary date. I hope they provide a wrapper but somebody at Steinberg has been making some strange decisions recently. At least the stupid licensing model was changed after all the protests - maybe they'll reconsider this to.....fingers crossed. as usual, restricting choice is always bad news for the consumer

    I got Stereoizer last time (I think) and highly recommend it. It is really fantastic for getting that final 3D polish/widening (if you want it) on your mix bus. It's soooo good I'm excited to see how Aligner stacks up to MAutoAlign.

    Yamaha TX816 Factory Patches UNIFIED (w/Link) All you need is PluginGuru Unify to use this. It leverages the bundled free Dexed DX7 FM synth emulation that Unify includes, and is able to load DX7 factory patches. https://forums.pluginguru.com/unify-patchbook/yamaha-tx816-factory-patches-unified-w-link/ The TX816 was a rack synth with 8 DX7 modules. So Unify emulates this by using 8 layers of Dexed, with some custom tweaks by John "Skippy" Lehmkuhl, to make some big FM sounds!

    In the words of Unify’s developer: ”I see no reason for Unify ever to stop hosting VST2 plug-ins, and I would imagine that DAW vendors other than Steinberg probably feel the same way. If, some fine day, every DAW in the world stops supporting VST2, we might stop shipping Unify itself as a VST2 plug-in, but the VST3 version would (as I've written elsewhere) become quite valuable as a bridge to allow loading older VST2's.” https://forums.pluginguru.com/questions-about-unify-v1-0/will-unify-ever-run-natively-on-apple-silicon/

    True story this... For several years, I worked with a young woman (mid-20s?) whose first name was Emma and who always signed her name in lower case in emails (everything else was properly capitalised). So we could legitimately call her...Lower Case Em.

    I use a browser extension called Fakespot, which points out fake reviews and other warnings. This is what popped up when I went to that page: By "seller" they are not referring to walmart.com, but to Enlightened, the actual seller. I tried to find information about the brand, but couldn't find anyone selling it other than Walmart. I am tempted to buy one just to see what the deal really is. There has been a rash of bogus flash drives lately. What's worse, the device reports a spoofed capacity value to the O/S, resulting in missing or corrupt files if you try to write to it. Not what you want to back up your important files to. Some even come with malware pre-installed.

    the official advice from Steinberg is to leave that off anyway as it's broken - like other parts of their VST3 implementation. https://forums.steinberg.net/t/c11-speed-improvements/159708/15 there's a thread over at KVR that gives more background - but basically SB are desperate to see the back of VST2. They have been actively trying to force developers to switch.... But lots of developers prefer VST2 and there are certainly plugins that work better in VST2 than 3. Progress is fine but this isn't progress - it's just removing functionality. What's next ? Midi 1.0 ? (so very 1980) - score editing ?(so very 1880). Steinberg can do whatever they want but IMO it's a dumb move, but we've come to expect that from Steinberg over the years. I'm sure whatever development time is saved will get squandered on a plugin that nobody wants or asked for...or 3rd rate sample library....or more likely improving their new licensing model. Apple can get away with a depreciating whatever they like because they are worth 3 trillion dollars...SB not so much. /rantoff

    FWIW I keep all my machines up to date with all updates as soon as they come out and I rarely have issues. I may wait a month before doing an upgrade, but I usually upgrade on at least one machine right away to check it's ok, the go ahead with the rest. I've had far more issues in the past trying to update an old machine which is way behind on upgrades.

    They should discontinue AAX also hehe. Recently while searching for extra space on my ssd I discovered about 40GB of plug-in data that had been automatically installed in an AAX folder. I always uncheck AAX when installing so these were a total surprise to find. If I move to VST3 exclusively then maybe I can get 80GB back? That would be amazing. Score.

    IIRC, the Style Dials use older versions of the plug-ins. I learned their structure the hard way. When I was volunteered to support MC7, I installed the DAW and it blew up some of the Platinum plug-ins. A few rounds with the devs and the problem was sorted out. They could be DX, VST2 or VST3 because FX Chains supports all formats but, in this case, they are all VST2.
