  1. The insert synth right there and not at the end of the tracks is welcome. I just figured that's how things were.
  2. None right now. It hasn't happened in a while but when it does, it does for only a little while then the goose bumps are over for that tune.
  3. A search for Brainworx on the u.s. patent site turned up nada.
  4. That's not a musician's concern. Rock on.

    Your 2020 best purchase ?

    An Apogee AD16x (if it ever gets here).
  6. It doesn't matter. Alison Krause and Union Station.
  7. It's the best DAW on the market paid or free.
  8. When I ran a home commerical studio I used 4 behinger bcf2000s in mackie mode because it enabled me to quick mix what the clients just laid down. Now that I have closed it to the public I still have them before me but leisurly mix with a mouse again.
  9. I use a quad zeon. works well enough. If you want zero latency, monitor the source signals before the daw and go ahead and run the buffer setting that the pc finds comfortable. This is what I do.
  10. I'm one who does not believe that open source is just all that and a bag of chips.
  11. By retaining control they are retaining a quality standard that is set internally. It's probably hard enough to do what they are doing as it is.
  12. I'm having this issue with a vsti vocal synth i'm testing. It has a piano roll and chases cw. If I do a ctrl-z with sonar in focus (behind the plugin) sonar "rudely" removes the vsti instead of the vst removing the last edit. I too did a ctrl-Y and got the synth back but all my work in the vsti is gone. Clicking the keyboard icon to "send all keystrokes to the plug" doesn't work at least for ctrl-z.
  13. Someone said perhaps we should go to melodyne 5 to solve this.

    I have returned!!!

    No internet. Must really be the hollers. If that's how y'all spell it.
  15. K. I'll take it down to 1024, but you'll have to meet me half way then. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  16. I hope someday the arranger preview will work "seamlessly" at high buffer counts. Years ago, being weary of bumping buffers as a song progressed I set my system up to use 2048 buffers and hardware and midi direct monitoring to I could forget about the storage medium and just be free. Naturally, arranger preview exhibits huge gaps if I rearrange sections. I had been able to mouse-to-markers while the transport ran to hop around the arrangement with little more than a tick or two even with a dense, done, song at 2048 asio buffers. Wondering why if I can do that with my mouse, why can't cake make an arranger track? I'll wait. Things will get better. I'm not moving my buffers. I like it this way. ๐Ÿ™‚
  17. I didn't, but that doesn't mean it's not there, thanks.
  18. Here is a thought. While the arrangement is playing, highlight or otherwise indicate, which block on the left side stack is currently playing.
  19. I'm an old coot. when I was 19 I worked on the testing floor among PDP-11s and vt-100 terminals. There was SCO unix running on one box and it seemed necessary then for it to be verbose about all it's doings upon startup and shutdown. You know, screens of daemons and services coming to life and being killed . The file system ran out of ram so it could service all those vt-100 terminals with a measure of speed, but oh don't you loose power or you'll have lost and scrambled inodes with only an fsck to fix it. This required a fighter pilot. OK that was 1979 ish, so it was ok. Here I am in 2020 and linux still likes to show you it's daemons upon start and stop which just for starters will put off just about any normal person. And the when it looses juice it still corrupts it's file system and it still takes a fighter pilot to go sudo su fsck /dev/sdc0 put in the password, be admonished about inodes, know how to respond etc. Windows doesn't like to be kicked either but it by and large can repair ntfs by itself. I know a guy who is one of these linux guys to be a linux guy. - I agree with the Charlie Brown great punpkin analogy. Computers and phones are like cars or ratchet wrenches. We expect to just use em without thinking or fanfare. Linux guys, well I just don't know. It's still that "scary" unix.
  20. A Mexican magician says he will disappear on the count of three. He then says "uno, dos..." and then disappears without a tres. I hate Cinco De Mayo! -Said no Juan ever
