    Get Glary Utilities HERE (the free version is all you need).  When you're installing, I recommend turning off all check-boxes.  Once installed, feel free to go to the 1-Click Maintenance tab, select all the boxes you want (I usually select all of them except Tracks Eraser), and run an initial system check.

    Once that's done, go to the Advanced Tools tab, select Optimize & Improve and then Check Disk (this is just like your usual chkdsk except I've found it works better).  I prefer to schedule the disk checks to occur during the next reboot to ensure nothing is accessing the drive.  You'll want to check the two boxes at the bottom ("Automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors").

    Once the disk check has finished, try the Windows 10 update again.  If it fails agin, it should give you an error code.  If it does, post what it is.  I've got ways to fix at least a couple of dozen of these.

    Good luck! 🧙‍♂️

    Craigb , installed Glary   and ran. Ran update with no joy, no error code given.   Please help!

    You need to install Komplete Kontrol which comes with the free Komplete Start. (<-- links embedded in the words). 


    It will then scan all of your plugins and their presets (including NKS patches like these Waldorf ones). You just need to make sure that the plugin VST folder location is included in the scanning locations in Preferences (see below). For me this was in C:\Program Files\Steinberg\VstPlugins\


    Zinc, I have  Komplete Kontrol. PPG 2.2 does not show up in either the VST inside CbB or the stand alone. I have the paths set to include it in stand alone but no joy. I'm about to give up . :(

    The built-in ones seem to be called rather unimaginatively "Factory '84" then a number from 001 to 128. 

    However, I also found some different patch banks in NKS format here...

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Waldorf\PPG Wave 2.V\nks_ContentDir\presets 


    These can be used with Komplete Kontrol and some of these patches actually have descriptive names.

    Some of the folders have 128 patches and some less but even so that's another 800 plus (852 to be precise) presets to play with!

    EDIT: Just checking out those Michael Johnson presets. Some excellent ones!

    Hey Zinc... how do I import these patches into the PPG 2.2? I copied them into the VST Waldorf folder but still can't access them. Help!

  4. Joy! Opened Melodyne after new update... now opens with discrete blobs instead of all in a line the way it had been (hadta change to Melodic every time.) Betcha it was the ARA2 thingy! 😁

  5. A preview of "Dreamer Awaken" to be heard on "Immaterial Witness" coming soon! Featuring Jake Livgren on vocals. Recorded in SONAR and mixed in Cakewalk by Bandlab. Used new Waves Abbey Road reverb.

    Orders have to validated, etc. and processed through Waves.  You posted around 11pm PST (which their time zone if I recall correctly) on a Sunday on Cinco de Mayo.
    Go grab a beer and a lime and check back in the morning...

    BTW if deal is on a deadline Koby of EveryPlugin does check and process orders before calling it a night.

    Got the 'verbs!

    If you spent 9 years, I can certainly give you ten minutes and more.  I listened twice. It's astounding to me that one person can recreate, or even embrace the daunting task of recreating, in a believable way, Genesis, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Yes, Jethro Tull and the other progressive rock bands I once listened to devoutly in my twenties.  This is a remarkable achievement. I'm eternally grateful someone out there is paying homage to that stuff. Who is the audience in today's world? I'm not really sure. Old-timers like me, no doubt. Don't know about the young ones, but it would be great if they paid some heed.

    Thank YOU Sailor55!  There are young ones listening...

    I like how the drums are panned on those fills. And the programming? is pretty good as well. You might stick all the drums on a bus and treat them to the same reverb space? And I'd say, snare louder in the chorus.

    Great vocal lines and delivery.

    If you listen in any given spot in your tune, those acoustic rhythm guitars seem loudest in the mix. I think you should tuck the volume down on those guitars, and let the lead instrument cut through more, be it voice, lead guitar, what have you. When they synths are in the lead, they are very much so - great mix on those!


    100 extra points for coolness and originality.


    Those pics in the video, was that you on stage?




    Thanks, Tom! I'll bear your comments in mid for final mixing. Pix on stage is Mark Thopmson.
