  1. Reverb Drum Machines Complete Collection for FREE https://reverb.com/software/samples-and-loops/reverb/3514-reverb-drum-machines-the-complete-collection
  2. IKM has a Fulltone collection that includes Michael Fuller's clone of the Tri Stereo Chorus. It's really nice. https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/fulltone/
  3. That's a yes about midi control of the Input Echo. I'm using both an MFC10 (midi foot controller) and a Korg NanoKontrol. The Input Echo I want to control with the foot pedal, I use the NanoKontrol to fade the volume or fb. If I can figure out how to control multiple Input Echos directly with a foot pedal, then I would also use the foot pedal to start/stop the transport & play either cells or columns in matrix. For the looping for me the key is cutting off the input to the delay and letting it play on while I play over it or start another loop. I play guitar so I need a pedal to enable/disable the feed to the delay. When I want one loop to fade out currently I plan on using the NanoKontrol to reduce the fb.
  4. To some extent I'm eating my words. I was playing around with Frippertronics last week and I had one of those doh moments. I was using delay lines like Fripp or Reich and realized I could sync them up to the tempo. You can then make it hybrid, the tape loops and prerecorded or looped tracks or matrix. We're still left with the problem of using a foot controller. Using either Cakewalk or Live there are restrictions on MIDI mapping. I'm using aux tracks for the delays and use Input Echo to feed a delay. I would like to be able to enable/disable Input Echo on the delay tracks, but I haven't figured out how to do that other than to navigate tracks (prev, next) and control the current track. In Live I can control the sends with a button (footswitch - MFC10) and switch between -infinity and 0 dB so I'm moving over to Live. It is workable in Cakewalk, but takes more tap dancing for a guitarist. There are still solutions in Cakewalk. Using a delay that allows you to turn off the input or using a looper plugin and so on.
  5. Add Input Echo as a track parameter to the Cakewalk Generic Surface. It doesn't seem like I can control the master bus. It would be nice to be able to control buses as well. If the Cakewalk Generic Surface is based on an xml file is it possible to get a copy of it?
  6. It is common to gain stage and add some coloration - if a compressor can be set at unity and has an output gain control you can use that. EQs often have output gain - keep the eq flat, but turn up the output gain.
  7. I like Echos and have used it a lot, although now I have to choose between it and Outer Space (Roland RE-201 clone), Overloud's Echoson, and IKM's Fulltone SSTE. Well worth $19.
  8. There may be a guitar modeler. The only vst guitar modeler I'm aware of is Blue Cat Audio's Re-guitar. https://www.bluecataudio.com/Products/Product_ReGuitar/ It seems to be closer to a PU modeler than a guitar modeler. I don't know if they have a 12 string electric though. The HW guitar modelers that seem to do a good job of 12 string emulation use hex PUs - Roland/Boss and Line 6 Variax. If you have hex PUs you probably have the HW modeling...
  9. I have a Boss SY-1000, but the concept is the same. I have a mixer and it feeds both an audio IF and PA and/or monitors. The main outs from the 1000 go to the mixer. If I use the 1000 usb IF then the mixer channels the 1000 are on are routed to the PA. The mixer is a 4 bus mixer so signals can be routed thru an audio IF. With this setup I can also have the the 1000 go to Ableton Live and have fx and looping all thru the 1000 and also have the mixer tracking in Cakewalk and just the Cakewalk output going to the PA and/or monitors.
  10. Use Ableton Live or a good pedal. I have an EDP, but it's mono so I use Live 9.
  11. I'm not a DSP guy; there are people on the forum who know a lot more about audio than I do, but I'll step in anyway. Two digital filters are FIR and IIR which are Finite Impulse Response and Infinite Impulse Response so impulse responses are used in filters. I think speaker IRs are basically filtering (EQing).
  12. It looks like it won't be available until the 14th of Feb. The page that has the download link has an activation code or did when I dl'd it.
  13. Or from the pulsar website https://pulsar.audio/smasher
  14. CbB has matrix view which is non-linear. You can try that. I use Live for looping.

    How to get more volume

    Yes. I'm not a recording engineer so I don't know the correct terms, but you need to consider loudness in terms or RMS or an average over time. You can have a peak that goes up to 0 dB, but the average volume over a second might be -12 dB. This is one area where compressors and limiters are used. I use both compressors and limiters when I master.
  16. Exactly. I updated to win10 at the end of 2019 and after optimizing win10 I don't see much difference. My audio I/F doesn't have win10 drivers, but it's running as well as it did in win7. In terms of stability, buffer sizes, cpu usage, and so on CbB seems fine under win10.
  17. I use it, it's a lot of fun.
  18. It's a zip file, it sounds like you haven't unzipped it.
  19. It may be a long wait. The USB 4 spec says it may, optionally, support Thunderbolt 3. The fact that it was made optional implies there's not much interest in it on the PC side. https://www.pcworld.com/article/3435844/thunderbolt-is-optional-in-usb4-usb4-spec-says.html
  20. Go to the link I provided above and download the win10 driver file. It explains possible problems and how to correct them.
  21. Control Surface Plugin for Sonar https://www.roland.com/global/support/by_product/a-800pro/updates_drivers/
  22. You've sold me. I like spring reverb - I play guitar and have a couple spring reverb plugins, but I looked at the way this a laid out and like it. For the price it's worth trying.
  23. Also you need a software instrument to generate sound. http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=SoftSynths.08.html
  24. Here's a review of the motu m2. The reviewer does a number of measurements including RTL. Freq Response: 3:38 Dynamic Range: 4:33 EIN Comparison: 5:40 RTL: 8:45

    One of my next toys will be the Boss SY-1000. It's been unveiled, but won't be available until February.
