  1. This guy: The tooltip says "Follow Project Pitch." What is "project pitch?" All I did was open a project, then drag the "04 Drone Guitar 1" sample from the Big Fish Audio Cinematic/Eclipse 2/04 065 G folder into an audio track. I've tried hitting it just for laughs and it doesn't seem to do anything to the audio. After I press the button, though, I can pull down the menu that says "A" and it shows a checkmark next to "G." Before I pressed the button I couldn't pull the menu down. No idea what the "A" menu is for. So far, when I ask about Loop Construction View, people mostly tell me that for the things that it's supposed to be for, I should use some other tool, but I'm curious about the various features of Sonar and Loop Construction View has so far been a big mystery.
  2. Respect for a good apology and making amends when you realized your faux pas. We all screw up from time to time. The better of us do what we can to set things right.
  3. I have MPS 5, and I'm not sure I can see much that MPS 6.5 updates save for RX. Shine some light? Of course, if you're into iZotope, that plus more licenses for Stratus and Symphony are worth it. I glitched in on that $149 thing late last year, and I have to confess, most of it has just sat there while I've used my MeldaProduction and Plugin Alliance FX. Don't get me wrong, not a bit of buyer's remorse; having the whole MPS shebang, even laying in wait, is something I'd not have dreamed possible a year ago. It's my woodworking tools analogy: my Hitachi miter saw can sit for years without being touched, but when I need it, it pays for itself every time.
  4. https://www.kiiveaudio.com/products/xtmax In their words: "Make your drums explode with this renowned, gritty compressor, and make use of its 3 release modes to add edge and punch to any mix." "XTMax may be XTComp's (Plugin Alliance Exclusive) little brother, but it's more than capable to stand on its own for any mix!" It looks from the copy that it came out of research into what's so great about Distressor, so if that piques your interest, get it.
  5. And you subsequently lucked back into getting what it said on the tin. IMO, it's a better product now than if it had continued under Gibson management. Mucho respeto for those (and even I was one, 25 years ago) who invested in Cakewalk/SONAR back in the day. CbB and Cakewalk Sonar would not have existed without our buy-ins.
  6. XTMax is a free compressor from Kiive Audio.

  7. Did you maybe intend to post this in the Songs forum? Is it yours?
  8. Okay, just grabbed a new d/l and now I can see String It is in Swatches, but not Exodus. Either I downloaded the wrong thing earlier, or installed from an old installer or something, because now we match, and "String It" is the newest one. I remember getting the email about "Exodus".... Are you going to write them?
  9. Same here. I'll try downloading it again and see if the missing ones show up.
  10. Hold up. Rather than just going by what the website had been telling me, I just checked A|A|S Player and I don't have sounds from Velvet Chic, Split Personality, Exodus, String It, Real Illusions, Bass Factory, Hop Riffs, or Love Lost.... What the hell is up with that?? Every time one comes out, as I said I check the page to see if they've put in the latest sample sounds and I only download if they do. I guess I should tell them. Maybe they have the wrong build up on the website.
  11. Yes, a month or two ago, or whenever it was that Exodus was released. Once a soundpack is released it's unusual for them to wait to include a dozen of them in Swatches and announce the new version. Whenever they send me email saying a new soundpack has shipped, I go straight to the Swatches product page and check to see if they've put the treats in there for downloading and I can't remember ever being disappointed that they hadn't done it yet. At this point, if I sat down with Swatches and spent only 30 seconds auditioning every sound in it, I think it would take me 4 hours or so to finish, if my math is right.
  12. Free powerhouse instrument A|A|S Swatches has been updated to include sounds from their new String It soundpack. Swatches is over 730 sounds from across their range of modeled instruments. IMO one of the best free virtual instruments out there.
  13. Some of them are probably redundant, but I just installed them anyway to make the toasts go away. They do no harm.
  14. I listened on headphones and I concur. Great-sounding track, nothing I would change except for maybe one thing. I was especially impressed with the drum programming, and I'm a drummer. On your hard-panned guitars, have you used any ambient reverb? Bu this I mean a full stereo reverb that's in a bus rather than the instrument's FX rack so that it isn't hard panned. The reason I ask is because during the few times when one or the other is heard in isolation, there's something odd about the soundstage. They sound isolated, which may be deliberate, but I mean isolated not in the sense that there's an imaginary space with a hard-panned guitar in it, but more like one side of my headphones cut out. If that's deliberate, then, well, you nailed it. But if it's not, I'd try maybe sending a little bit of guitar to a reverb bus.
  15. I suspect that's a "look the other way" thing. After all, they're charging little to nothing for the license to begin with in the hope that you'll someday move up to S1 Pro or at least do as I did and drop $50 on an update.
