  1. UPDATE to my earlier thread: I recently got my Battery working better for me, after years of using it. I managed to get all Battery 3 kits into Battery 4 and consolidated all drum maps for Cakewalk by Bandlab / Sonar users. I did enter my serial number for Komplete 8, and even 12 hours later, Native Access wouldn't show anything from my Komplete 8 stuff. I have discs but I think they're in storage in my parent's basement :). However, I did find Battery 3 installation files here: https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000549845 And here's how to import Battery 3 kits into Battery 4: https://support.native-instruments....-the-BATTERY-4-and-MASCHINE-2-Library-Browser And finally, my consolidated drum maps for Cakewalk users: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0phgxjosspkvqfe/Battery 1-4 Drum Maps for Cakewalk.zip?dl=0 Enjoy!

  2. Yeah, I also commented on this thread, and now I'm trying to get my Komplete 8 to show up in Native Access so I can download and install Battery 3, but after putting in the serial number, nothing happens. https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/brushes-and-other-jazzy-sounds.417417/
  3. Good idea, Bob, thanks, will do. I also have Battery 3 maps but when I upgraded to Battery 4, my presets for Battery 3 disappeared. I don't worry about it much, as there's lots of cool kits in B4 anyway.
  4. Hey Bob I managed to create maps to all the Battery 4 kits, check it out Neel Battery 4 Drum Maps for Cakewalk.zip
  5. Any NI Battery 4 users here? It took me a while, but I managed to create drum maps for all the default kits. I found some text files a while back online, but didn't know how to convert them to maps. A few programs later and a lot of repetitive clicking, and voila. My gift to y'all.

  6. Looking at the guide you linked to, the theme editor has the same options as the colour tabs in Preferences, so it won't do what I want.
  7. Thanks scook, the guys on FB said it couldn't be done in the Theme Editor. I've never even installed the editor, but I can try it. I'm looking for a different colour / shade on the SELECTED synth. If they all change to same colour, that won't help me.
  8. I haven't used arranger in this way yet, and yes this is an issue, as explained in this video:
  9. I'd love to the option to customize the colour of the synth rack background or background of the title field (similar to the track view) when a synth is selected. By default in the Tungsten theme, it doesn't have very good contrast to clearly see which synth is currently selected. I posted on Facebook about this, in case it gets updated there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/sonarusergroup/permalink/2757017177758492/
  10. For years, I've KNOWN how to do a drum map in Sonar/Cakewalk, but rarely bothered, because it's cumbersome. But recently I found that my go to kit for a lot of stuff was the same (NI Abbey Road 60s Full Kit) so I decided to give it a go. It did take some time, but once you're in the groove it's pretty easy, and I also had a chart in the Abbey Road manual that gave all the note names/numbers and drum names, so I could easily copy and paste names from the PDF. To date, this is the only drum map I've ever used (been using Sonar since 2003-ish). I only use NI Battery 4 quite a bit, and some of those kits have many drums, but I could never find maps for them so I don't think anyone else bothered to create them either!
  11. Most of the time, I run a normal compressor on the master bus, very gentle settings, a multi-band compressor, again with very gentle settings. Top-down mixing approach says to do this after you get a static mix, and mix through these effects. The limiter comes later, as the very last thing to do.
  12. Hi everyone I've been a long-time fan of the free Vinyl plug-in by Izotope (https://www.izotope.com/en/products/vinyl.html) for lo-fi effects I'm working on a track where I want only part of the song to use Vinyl. So I put Vinyl into an FX Chain in the Master Pro Channel, and then automated the chain's on/off button. But this results in a bit of a click every time it goes on/off. I'd rather take a beat or two to fade-in/fade-out the lo-fi effect. Any suggestions on how to do this? In Vinyl, there is only a bypass switch, there's no mix knob to automate. Thanks! Neel
  13. Hmm, this looks like it's part of an instrument definition, not a master override. TBH, I don't know if I'd pick flats or sharps for a general setting....
  14. Loving the new feature that shows note names on the notes in PRV! However, it uses both flats and sharps at the same time. Is there a way to get it to conform to a specific key signature? I inserted a key change at measure 1 to Ab (3 flats) but PVR still shows both Bb's and G#s in the PRV. Any way to change this? Thanks! Neel
