    My horror story with iLok was when I killed my motherboard during a routine upgrade project. So there was no longer any way to deactivate the local soft licenses from the original machine. The only recourse for me was to email every software publisher the used iLok and request a reset.

    Did you get the licences back? If so, how long did it take?

    Do you feel that it needs a v1.0.2 patch? If so, what needs addressing?

  3. I lost too. Strange game - no clue what the prizes are.

    Boom Library has a spinner game - prizes range from one sound effect from their libraries, to bonus spins, to coupons. At least you get to see what the prizes are though.

    They are different (I prefer the sound of ValhallaShimmer), but given the limited number of use-cases for this type of reverb, I'd still consider them redundant.

    If you're intent on having more than one flavor of a regenerative pitch-shifting reverb, check out irid from tritik. It's got a couple tricks all its own. It's only 50 bucks, too, same as ValhallaShimmer.

    In addition to Irid, don't forget about Audiority Xenoverb

    If they put Rooms of Hansa on sale I might be tempted, but its probably still too new.

    It's not particularly cheap, but the best way to get a discount on individual SDXs would be to buy a custom 3-pack


    If any resellers give the occasional site-wide coupon, these are something to have in mind if you're looking to expand your drum sounds.

  6. Not a Mac user, so sorry for the dumb questions. If something isn't M1 compatible, does that mean it doesn't run whatsoever on an M1 Mac? or that it's not optimised?

    And does M1 compatible software work on the new M2 Macs? or is that another update to wait upon?

    Audiolens by itself is almost useless.

    I wouldn't say that.

    You still get to do a spectral profile of your song and compare it with those of reference tracks. I see it as a sanity check that my mix/master is within the same ballpark as other songs in the genre. It's always possible to use whichever tools you want to shape your mix, and then compare it again - much like using iZotope Tonal Balance Control (for visual reference only)/Mastering the Mix Reference.

    One thing I am really clueless at is separating instruments in the mix using EQ. When people tell me I that 'I need to carve out some space in the mix' for one instrument or another, they may as well be talking in Klingon - I genuinely don't have a clue.

    I started a music-related blog recently, and my two most recent posts are about learning to EQ. One goes through my thought process when mixing a downtempo song and mentions some EQ settings that I used. If this sounds interesting, there's a link to it in my signature.

    Love these! I have a passive power supply and all SSDs inside. Integrated Intel GPU. The only thing that moves is a big, slow CPI fan. Virtually silent. Love it, except mine is old enough to NOT have a USBC connector on it.

    They are very nice - I love their modularity too.

    I suspect that is true! I have a decent Nvida GTX 1650 installed, and its usage shows up in the Windows Task Manager Performance tab.

    When I seem to be running a heavy plugin load, I often glance at Task Manager to see what's happening. At times I notice that my GPU is taking a pretty big slice of the work. But I can imagine that if I was only using my CPU integrated graphics, that my CPU would be taking that hit.

    Ooh - I'd not thought of checking GPU performance. I usually just check the CPU bars in the DAW. I'll remember to take a peek next time :)

    Too many DAW developers are into the eye candy movement

    Not just that though - there seems to be a new generation of plugins that are GPU powered. Not sure it's the best of ideas as fast GPUs are noisy, which is bad in DAW environments...

    If anyone needs any Christmas ideas for me, I'll take the SoundIron Omega bundle...

    All things considered, it's a good deal. This is the last year that they're offering a future discount on newly released libraries too.

    Too pricey for me though.

    another ugly downloader is needed to actually download it :( 

    Yeah, but the installer itself doesn't need installation - it just downloads and unpacks the files for you.

    If you want to keep the compressed files for backups, you can uncheck the self-clean-up box.

    Even libraries where scripting isn't that important,  like their vibraphone library,  the recording just sounds less than stellar to my ears.

    Is there a possibility that this is because the samples are more unprocessed? e.g. a Toontrack EZX might sound 'better' than an SDX, as the EZX has been pre-processed with EQ and compression.

    Funny thing, I was just messing about tonight with the free Soundpaint libraries and thinking they were the best-sounding thing since Chromophone. Then popped over here and was thinking "it'd be cool if 8Dio had a Black Friday sale."

    Just a reminder that 8Dio libraries are for (full) Kontakt, and can't be used in SoundPaint
