  1. USB has a much higher transfer rate - 2 orders of magnitude, but people play just fine with MIDI. Have you tried moving the on/off switch? I normally keep mine switched on and rely on USB power. Once the on/off switch wasn't fully on and the display lit up, but the USB connection was flakey.
  2. It looks like the UMC 1820 has direct monitoring, if you want to hear plugins make sure that direct monitoring on the i/f is disabled.
  3. AD has sweeps in Modern Jazz Brushes mentioned above. I counted 7 different sweeps. They're between C2 & C3.
  4. Try it with Merge All and make sure the MIDI out of the MIDI track in CbB is set to the correct output channel of the MOTU.
  5. I like the Godin LGXT; I also have the ACS Nylon SA and a Fender MIA strat with a roland GK-2A. Currently I'm using an sy-1000 and a gr-55.
  6. I haven't tried any of the guitar vsts so I have no idea how they work. I've used Melodyne Editor on bass guitar lines. I've converted a few to MIDI and then turned those into groove clips. That's pretty straight forward.
  7. Capture the audio and use Melodyne to convert to MIDI. Do you have the polyphonic version? There is also Jam Origin. It converts audio to MIDI. I haven't tried it. https://www.jamorigin.com/
  8. Glad you got it sorted. I wouldn't have thought of that.
  9. A number of people, including myself, had problems with audio output from the standalone version. If that's your problem go to settings and change the audio output device to something else and then change it back to what you want. Once you do that it should be fine.
  10. I have three dlls - MSuperLooper, MSuperLooper16in16out, MSuperLooper16out, but I've only used the stereo out. Augustus has some interesting features so it's worth a look.
  11. I like MSuperLooper. There is also Augustus Loop from expert sleepers.
  12. There's a difference between playing solo and playing in a band. Playing in a band not only changes your sound, it can change how you play. If you know the bass is playing the low note in a chord you may leave it out of the guitar chord. I think a good musician considers their role in a band. Do you think of how you sound or how the band sounds? I think in a band first you consider how the band sounds and then how you sound in the band. My 2 cents.
  13. What I've read is that usb 3.0/3.1 provides more bandwidth (you can have more channels), but doesn't improve latency. That's why we haven't seen a lot of new usb 3/3.1 interfaces. If you have other devices on your usb hub besides the interface it may help due to increased bandwidth/throughput.
  14. Just saw this thread today. I always power up the M4 after I login in so that may be part of the reason I'm not having problems.
  15. I have the M4 connected to a USB 3 port and the only other thing on the hub is a USB Drive I use for backup and it isn't running when I'm doing audio work. IIRC the M2/M4 are USB 2. When I was having the problem with the bad USB PCI card I tried the M4 into my laptop. That was USB 2 and it worked fine. It's an old laptop so I had the buffer set to 128 and it worked fine with no crackles, but I didn't try 64.
  16. My M4 is running fine. After a week or two I got a lot of crackles that had me worried, but it was a bad PCI USB card. The M4 is running fine for me now. It's pretty solid with a buffer size of 64. I ran the old sample projects - Cory Yarckin Floating and Shifty and the Big Shots. I think they're around 30 tracks. I did a simple song with 15 or 16 tracks. Five or six audio tracks, Kontact, Reaktor Prism, 2 instances of Omnisphere with 3 patches, 2 instances of Korg Arp Odyssey, Korg Mono/poly, Alchemy. At 64 I did have to load Kontact, Omnisphere, and Alchemy at the start of the project or I would sometimes get a click when they loaded. I haven't got Win 10 tamed yet. It will do the occasional virus scan in the background (and I don't know what else) and that will cause crackles. If I set the buffer to 128 I don't have to worry about some of those Win 10 unknowns.
  17. I had to change them and set them back. Now it's working - thanks.
  18. Do you mean open the settings menu? I saw your early comment and tried that, but maybe you mean something else?
  19. It's working for me. I'm on my laptop Windows 10 Pro, 20H2, 19042.685 1920 x 1200 It works on my DAW as well. I'll add that info later. I don't get any audio output on the stand alone version on my laptop or DAW. The app shows output, but it doesn't make it to the interface. My laptop is 9 years old so it's lacking in graphics support - the vst doesn't render in Live 10 on the laptop, but it's fine on my DAW.

    Korg Holiday Sale

    NP. It's not clear to me exactly how it works. Pro membership only comes with the D50 and TR808 so it's possible you can only get one of those with Pro. https://www.rolandcloud.com/roland-account/memberships/ The wording is - The Roland Cloud Holiday promotion Play 4 Life is back! For a limited time, purchase one year of Roland Cloud Pro or Ultimate Membership and get free Lifetime Key(s). Keep your favorite instrument for life, even if you don’t renew your membership. Use Roland Cloud for 365 days and discover which instruments you want to Play 4 Life. Act now, this promotion ends on December 31, 2020. That implies it's one of the instruments that's part of the membership.

    Korg Holiday Sale

    In Roland Cloud Play 4 Life. Scroll down a bit under news on the left. For a limited time, purchase one year of Roland Cloud Pro or Ultimate Membership and get free Lifetime Keys. Pro gets you one key and Ultimate gets you two. Then see membership - Pro $99.99 yr, Ultimate 199.99 yr. Then under Software Legendary stuff are $149 so you save $49 bucks and get a years membership. I like the their TR-808 better than the D16 so I may go for the Pro. I like the Jupiter 8 as well, but I have a jp-8080 and don't really need the Jupitar 8. I'm assuming only the emulations available under the membership are eligible for purchase.
  22. Pro on desktop and laptop. Mostly because I can disable automatic updates cleanly and update when I want.
