  1. Omnisphere has been a little funky for me the last couple years. When I open it and an update is available it will indicate it's up to date, but the next time I open it, it indicates that updates are available. Same thing just now. Now I have to remember to keep flow enabled ...
  2. If I understand your question correctly, the step sequencer is a midi sequencer. It doesn't hold samples, it holds midi notes. A HW sequencer drives either a synth or sampler and in a similar fashion the step sequencer drives a SW synth or sampler. You need to setup a SW sampler and then put a step sequencer in the midi track or something similar.
  3. I treated my room to some extent, but it's just a home studio - I didn't hire an expert to do it. Using room correction SW made a big difference.
  4. I waited way too long to try room correction SW. I wish I had got it sooner.
  5. It's $199 for me to go from Komplete STD 13 to 14. I'll have to see if Kontakt 7 is worth it.
  6. Do you have one of the midi devices enabled in edit -> preferences -> midi -> devices? Do you have a vst instrument set up? Is the input set to one of your devices? Is input echo enabled?
  7. There's a lot you can do. If you have HW synths/samplers you can use CbB to drive them, if not you'll probably want to go with SW instruments (vst). If you use SW, as bdickens says you'll probably want to mix everything down. If you're using CbB live then you also have an option of processing your guitar and vocals. At a minimum you'll need a laptop/computer, audio I/F, mixer, PA, and MIDI controller to control CbB. The requirements for the audio I/F will depend on what you want to do with CbB.
  8. As others have said, it doesn't work that way. There are a couple things you can do. You can try a pitch shifter. Shift down an octave and apply a LP filter and that might get you close. Others have proposed melodyne and another option is guitar to MIDI. There are HW units that do gtr 2 MIDI as well as software. I haven't tried it, but people write about Jam Origin SW. https://www.jamorigin.com/products/midi-guitar-1/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbtR2VBVp2E Another option is a guitar synthesizer like the boss sy-1000
  9. I do have scaling enabled. That maybe it. Omnisphere is messed up as well. I'll try again in a few years.
  10. Electric bass is not an organ. A picked note on a bass may not sustain for long. Try using the virtual keyboard and holding the note down, how long does it sustain?
  11. I'll have to check I may have scaling. I played with it a bit. The VST 2 has a problem, the VST 3 is bad when it is installed and opens, but if I close it and reopen it it's fine, so I have a workaround.
  12. When I open AD2 in Waveform it doesn't render properly. The GUI is shifted down in the frame and I can't select anything.
  13. I played with it a bit and the MIDI generator is kind of fun. Addictive Drums 2 didn't work for me, it doesn't render properly. If they fix AD2 and other VSTs I like work, I may get the MIDI Producer expansion.
  14. I like the funk kit. I mix and match kits and beats and use that funk kit quite a bit.
  15. I'm all for an arp editor, but I will point out that cthulu is only $39. https://xferrecords.com/products/cthulhu
  16. For what you're trying to do also consider a MIDI splitter.
  17. Are we looking at the same web site? That studio pro has a base price of $2319 and adding an audio drive + sample drive makes it $2800. Where is the $2-3k mark up? I took a quick look at Dell and couldn't customize exactly, but it would be close to $2500. The mark up over Dell may be $3-400. That seems reasonable to me. I haven't bought from Jim so I'm fairly objective.
  18. Many years ago, Herbie Hancock had two drummers on electronic drums for his Future Shock tour, although one also played a fair amount of percussion. Great Show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDzqrO78V38
  19. Yeah, I've noticed a fair number of drummers and percussionists using an spd-sx. I got one to input midi, but it's fun to trigger loops on some of the pads as well ...
  20. Not drums, but that reminded me of seeing the who back in the 70's. They used tape or a tape loop for baba o'reily; I remember looking around for a keyboard player 😀 It was only years later that I read they were using tape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZBhgZBjiLE
  21. Yes, but why? Do you want to use it live, or record the processed signal?
  22. Going back to the 80's I've seen drummers use sequencers to play high hat parts on some songs. Some bands like the grateful dead had two drummers. Does it matter if it sounds good?
