  1. That's in the manual - there is an illustration showing the different strikes. Shallow is the head toward the rim and open is in the center. https://assets.xlnaudio.com/documents/addictive-drums-manual.pdf Page 45.
  2. MIDI out can go to HW - synths and samplers. MIDI controllers also include pedals. As a guitarist I use a midi foot controller to control loopers, Ableton Live, and so on.
  3. I've got some of the Korg stuff and like that. Roland had a sale last year and I was tempted to get both the D-50 and 808. The Jupiter is good too, but I have a jp-8080 with all the knobs...
  4. There are two types of guitar synths - guitar to midi and wave shaping. The old Roland GR-300 that Pat Metheny used was wave shaping. In that vein there is also the GR-500, VG-88, VG-99, GP-10, and Boss SY-300 and SY-1000. Many of the later models also have gtr-to-midi. These are polyphonic. There are some multi fx boxes that have a synth fx, but they are usually monophonic. Electro Harmonix has made some pedals in the wave shaping vein like the Micro Synth. I'm not aware of vsts that are doing this although there may be some. Guitar Rig 6 has a Harmonic Generator fx - I think it is monophonic and is modelled on the Micro Synth.
  5. It's surprising that comes from a music tech company. They don't think people will have it on a DAW? They don't realize you don't want notifications while you're tracking? I have it installed, but I have startup and notifications disabled. I haven't purchased anything because of the implementation.
  6. Right click the Win Start icon and select Device Manager. Expand Sound, video and game controllers an you should see Korg nanoKontrol2. If so start CbB and in Edit -> Preferences -> MIDI -> Devices you should see nanoKontrol.
  7. I have one. I play guitar so it doesn't get a lot of use. Mine is branded Cakewalk by Roland and it works well with CbB.
  8. It doesn't help with your problem, but I was trying to explain the design. On the HW midi controllers and HW sound modules I have the bend range is buried inside a menu and is not a parameter you change when playing a song. You set a bend range on your midi controller and you set the bend ranges on any sound modules you are controlling to match. That allows you to change your bend range. Midi pitch bend messages change when you play a song - on a keyboard the pitch wheel is there to manipulate in real time, it's not buried in a menu. Midi pitch bend messages are relative to the bend range. The value in a pitch bend message to raise a pitch a half step is different if the bend range is 2 than if the bend range is 12. If you want to bend up a fifth somewhere in your song you set the bend range to 7 at the beginning of the song and if you bend up or down a half step you put the appropriate value to achieve that and like wise for a whole step bend. For any given bend range you need to calculate what pitch bend value you need to bend to the interval you want. That is how I understand the design and that is likely what you'll find on midi controllers and sound modules. If you record someone playing a midi controller this is what you'll see. Bend ranges are already set and when you record a midi performance you'll see pitch bend messages and if there is a wide bend range you'll note the peaks of the curves will be at different values for half step, whole step, and bends of a third and so on. Given that you're free to do whatever you want and if TTS-1 is easier for your composing methods you should use that.
  9. OK, you're drawing it in, not playing it? And of course there's higher resolution with smaller bend ranges...
  10. I don't understand. Some midi controllers have a fixed bend range so the synth and controller have to match. Even if the controller has a programmable bend range the controller's and synth's bend ranges have to match. You wouldn't change the bend range on the fly. Once the bend range is set then the value of the bend message determines how much the pitch changes. Pitch bend messages are relative to the bend range. Keyboards often have a value of 2, guitar to midi controllers are often 12 or 24 - allowing you to slide up/down the neck. Using a midi controller you do it by ear and it's very simple. The idea of rising to the next note changes based on the bend range - what value rises to the next note depends on the bend range.
  11. Does the crackling happen with wifi and lan disabled?
  12. If you play an electric gtr you can make it sound like an acoustic. Blue Cat Audio has the Re-guitar. https://www.bluecataudio.com/Products/Product_ReGuitar/ I use HW devices - Roland VG-99 or Boss SY-1000. Roland/Boss has other devices/pedals as well
  13. It depends on the vendors. Some let you manage license from any machine, with others you may have to contact their support.
  14. If the old HW still works uninstall/free up any SW license that are tied to that machine that you don't need when you get the new machine setup. That's more important if you keep a dual setup - DAW and laptop.
