  1. Spectrasonics. I have Omnisphere and IIRC I paid for one upgrade and an expansion (Bob Moog Tribute Library). but they both seemed reasonable. I've had a number of free upgrades over the years and a couple were substantial. Of course the upfront cost isn't cheap. Also agree with Melda P.
  2. I have the MOTU M4 and it's working fine for me. Availability is a problem.
  3. Not quite true. USB 2 is 480 Mbps and 3 is 4.8 Gbps which is an order of magnitude faster (and 3.1 is 10 Gbps), but transfer speed doesn't necessarily mean reduced latency. Part of it is that there are more data lines with USB 3 so some data is sent in parallel, but there is also a question of how the data is handled by the host. If the host system responded to data every time a byte was received, if enough data was sent, it would be possible to flood the system so all it did was respond to data and didn't have time to process it. I don't know what the protocol is for USB, but apparently the way the host handles incoming data isn't any faster for 3 vs 2. Since it isn't reducing latency it's not a selling point and vendors aren't flocking to it.

    Re-registration

    That was on my laptop. I tried on my DAW and got the same results. I checked the firewall and private access was checked, but not public. I checked public and it still didn't work. On my laptop it was the opposite - private wasn't checked, but public was. Bandlab Assistant was set up the same way and it worked.

    Re-registration

    When I opened CbB today it asked me to register. The form didn't say what field was what - username/password. I entered in that order - email and password, but I got a message saying it was invalid. I logged in to bandlab assistant with the same credentials and that worked. What are we suppose to enter when we need to re-register CbB?
  6. I have a Viewsonic VX3211 2k, so 32 inches. I wouldn't mind dual monitors, but don't have room on the desk...
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. AD has sweeps in Modern Jazz Brushes mentioned above. I counted 7 different sweeps. They're between C2 & C3.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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/
  14. Glad you got it sorted. I wouldn't have thought of that.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. I like MSuperLooper. There is also Augustus Loop from expert sleepers.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
