  1. And I do exactly the opposite. Not that I have buyers remorse over Arturia V Collection, but it's always my second choice. But also having UVI Falcon, that might add to my equation.
  2. Welcome to the forum, Pippin. I used to see your Cakewalk tutorials back in the SONAR X1 days when you had the MCI Studio channel on YouTube. It’s great to see that you have updated to CbB and started to make tutorials for it.
  3. No, there isn’t. And I guess any company trying to create such a VST would get a large number of lawsuits on its hands. To be able to do something like that you would have to reverse-engineer all the different proprietary sample file formats used by Native Instruments, Garritan, IK Multimedia, UVI and all the other players in this field using sample based players. Although I haven’t read all the EULAs of these companies, you most certainly are prohibited from reverse-engineer any of the distributed content. It’s not a matter of whether the players are free or not.
  4. UVI Portal 1.2.2 can be downloaded directly from the Portal page: https://www.uvi.net/en/uvi-portal.html#download
  5. So taking the improved VST scan code in Preferences and put it in the Plug-in Manager is not an option? Why not? Obviously, the program code already exists.
  6. This is the Deals sub-forum so these kinds of questions should not be posted here, but rather in the Cakewalk by BandLab or Q&A forum. However, as you’re already here, this is what you do: Make sure the Browser is visible, or else press B to display it. In the Browser, click the Media tab. In the list of folders being displayed, navigate to the sound file you want to import. Drag the file from the Browser into an empty space in the Track View and a new Audio Track will be automatically created with the file inserted where you dropped it. Or, drag it into an existing Audio Track and the file will be inserted there. I recommend having Auto-Preview checked in the Media tab drop-down menu so you automatically get a preview of each file you click on before import, and also having Loop Preview unchecked in that menu to only hear each preview once. Extra! Extra! Read all about it! https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=Browser.04.html
  7. The New Copperphone is a custom instrument made from modified Copper pipes. The end-result is a 12 pipe instrument that sounds somewhere between pristine bells and a metallic marimba of sorts. The Copperphone contains five core deep-sampled articulation types, which were made by playing the instrument with hard mallet, soft mallet, wooden mallet, muted notes and finger nails. The hard mallet, wooden mallet and finger nails have the most pronounced attack, where the soft mallet has a more smooth and relaxed tone. The included muted articulation is a non-sustained sample of the Copperphone. Price: On The House Leave a “tip” by subscribing to our Youtube click here The New Copperphone 40 New Presets!!!

  8. Grattis! Ni verkade båda väldigt lyckliga. I hope you’ll have a long and happy life together!
  9. Yes, I noticed that too, but when you install Falcon (at least with the Silent Install flag switched off) it will give the following info: Falcon 2.0.5 - Fix regression introduced in 2.0.4 So now we know.
  10. I just bought the White Grand (a Malmsjö Grand Piano) and it’s 4.95 GB unzipped. During Black Friday I bought the S.S.G. (probably a Yamaha C3 or G3) and that one was 3.16 GB. So my guess is that most of these first gen SampleTekk libraries are somewhere around those numbers.
  11. As far as I can see, the demo links at SampleTekk doesn’t work in Firefox, but they do work in Chrome (at least for me). The problem seems to be that SampleTekk doesn’t expose the SoundCloud player directly, but is wrapping the links into an internal player which doesn’t work with Firefox. The easy solution is of course to open the SampleTekk site in Chrome instead. Edit: All of a sudden the never-ending "Waiting..." (or was it "Loading..."?) messages next to the demo tracks in Firefox have disappeared and the player links have started to work there as well. Whether it was a temporary thing or maybe that some fix now has been done at the site, but the SoundCloud player problem now seems to have disappeared.

    UVI Vintage Vault 3

    The upgrade price for me from Vintage Vault 2 would be a hefty €199. If UVI had cut that in half to €99 I just might have considered it.
  13. Unfortunately it’s hard to find two companies with the same activation schemes. The obstacles are probably fewer if you don’t go for a clean Windows 10 install, but in case that’s what you’re aiming for, here are some of my findings: Obviously all plug-ins using iLok licenses stored on a computer should be deactivated on the Win 7 drive (i.e. put back into the cloud using iLok License Manager) and later dragged back to new Win 10 installation. Maybe it works anyway when not doing a complete upgrade, but considering the amount of money at stake I wouldn’t risk it and it only takes a few minutes. Any license stored on a physical iLok dongle is of course a non-issue. Software licenses from Steinberg (like Cubase or WaveLab) and Vienna Symphonic Library (VSL) are normally stored on a physical eLicenser dongle and thus non-issues as well. Also some older Arturia plug-ins run under eLicenser. Plug-ins from XLN Audio can’t be directly deactivated, but the XLN Online Installer will detect that you’re on a different OS and you can then easily move e.g. Addictive Drums licenses by removing your old computer and creating a new computer in your account on their web site. And that’s regardless if you’ve done a clean install or not. Toontrack will let you deactivate and later reactivate software on another computer directly from the Toontrack Product Manager. Great thinking there. Plug-ins from Arturia can be uninstalled using the Arturia Software Center. It's actually not clear to me if this will also deactivate the licenses, but it would certainly be strange if they weren't, as the Arturia Software Center is connected to your account when active. I didn’t have any problem reactivating them anyway. When it comes to Native Instruments the only information I could find was to uninstall my Komplete 10 Ultimate bundle using the Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features and then reinstall it. That worked for me. To be clear, I uninstalled the Bundle and not all the individual Komplete libraries and effects; they were automatically removed when the bundle was uninstalled. But I still find it strange that there’s currently no way to deactivate NI plugins from within Native Access. As for third-party libraries that only run under full Kontakt, they are never activated using computer-based fingerprints as far as I know and thus there's no need for deactivation. But of course there could be exceptions that I'm not aware of. iZotope products may or may not be authorized through iLok. If they are, licenses are of course deactivated as described above for iLok. If not, they can be uninstalled using the iZotope Product Manager. As with Arturia, it’s not absolutely clear to me whether this also deactivates the licenses, but it would certainly be strange if they weren’t as iZotope Product Manager is connected to your account when running. And I didn’t have any problem reactivating them anyway. But of course the list of vendors goes on and on.
  14. I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on my last two Win 7 computers. On the first (laptop) computer I did a fresh install and that took over a week to get all my licenses and stuff to almost work. So when the next PC (desktop) was to be upgraded I wasn’t quite as patient and did not do a fresh install. The time it took was of course only a fraction of the time compared to the clean install, but I’ve yet to see any serious problems arise from taking this shortcut. In both cases I first used Acronis True Image to clone both Windows 7 system drives. I then deactivated all software licenses that could be deactivated on the source drives. Finally I upgraded each clone and activated things that needed to be reactivated. That way it would have been possible to roll back by reinstalling the Win 7 source drives in case the upgrade didn't work, but that hasn't been necessary. To be honest, I wasn't that worried about having to reinstall anything, but very concerned about not losing any of my software licenses in the process. CbB was of course a non-issue being free. There’s a long thread about different ways to attack a Windows 10 upgrade here:
