  1. The thread on Gearslutz has a few forum folk from the Beta testing team and they all seem to rate it. Pretty much all of them reckon once the mix translates in multiple rooms in vsx, it seems to translate everywhere. Personally I don't doubt it works as advertised, but for $900 in Australia, what I am waiting to see is do the physical items last. Plus I have to somehow convince myself that nearly a grand on a set of cans is a completely reasonable purchase. 🤑
  2. Well so far the new PC is so fast at doing everything, I have had to abandon all my old habits of clicking on something and going to make a coffee (or play on my phone) whilst it decides whether it's going to open. I had heard the M.2 drives were fast, but some things have installed so fast that the install meter didn't even pop up on the screen. I clicked install, the pop-up box went blurry for a split second and next thing I'm staring at the "Finish" icon. It also appears that I can finally edit more than 4 bars at a time in melodyne without seizing and gliching. The old PC used to be able to do that too, but about a year ago it started having issues. Especially with multiple processes. I was having to render literally everything after each individual process, or risk it crashing to desktop with no crash log in any of the DAWs I own. Once a project got to 30ish tracks with 20 or so plugs, there's a good chance it was never opening with any sort of workable stability again. As for the Windows 10 ownership experience. I felt so blessed to be in the 4% (Microsoft reported figure) of users with a Windows 7 machine that was upgraded to Windows 10 and eventually corrupted permissions of powershell and key logger events. There were a few older VSTs that I couldn't open any more because they hadn't been updated in yonks and thus didn't have the coding to ignore the events. First thing I did with the new PC was install the VSTs that no longer worked on my old machine and so far they are happily up and running on the new PC. Fingers crossed until Microsoft release an update that messes with the new machines' mojo!😬
  3. In the process of copying over installation files and samples, so I don't have to re-download them. Old PC is working relatively fine for a couple of hours. That is until I start transferring files and almost as if it can sense its impending redundancy, starts glitching up and not responding. Whole screen goes blank. After 2 or 3 minutes desktop reappears sans icons. Open task manager and it's blank. Apparently not even Windows is running? Processes 0, memory 0, etc. Perhaps placing the new PC next to the old one has provoked a deep jealousy in its now somewhat ancient soul? Whatever is up with it, just let me get these final few files off of it and then it can have all the 0 processes it wants! This is partially the fault of the Deals section, as I wouldn't have so much s*** to copy over if Larry didn't keep pointing out so many bargains.🤑
  4. ^Is this the reason some people think a line has been crossed?
  5. What could make Larry part with his "desert island" plugs?
  6. I just tried your steps a bunch of times and could not produce the same result. All the beats of the new bounced track were as expected regardless of the pro-channel being off or on. What is weird about this is that normally if fx create a timing problem, it is a problem of latency. But your bounced track is occurring earlier, which is peculiar indeed. I can see that you have an input of Drums selected for the original recorded track. What is that input device, is it a drum machine? All I can think is that perhaps the devices settings are conflicting with the bounce? Have you tried disabling the input and then seeing if it bounces to track correctly?
  7. My strategy is to panic, freeze up, stay frozen until BF is over and not part with a single cent... Uuuhhh... Neeerrghhhhh... Stupid still working limbs reaching for wallet, I said FREEEEEEEEEZE!
  8. I bought a synth the other day and had not even checked it out yet. This fact suddenly hits me. So I load up the synth in Cubase and whilst I am at I figure I should check out my newly upgraded Octavox. I add Octavox to the audio insert of the synth and then leave the room to make a coffee. Upon returning, I am half chatting to a friend on messenger, half reading emails and had almost completely forgotten what I was originally doing. I see the Cubase icon and remember, "Oh that's right. I was gonna test out that synth!" So I pull up Cubase and push a few keys in the PRV editor (this makes the chord options take up most of the display in the inspector, so I can no longer see the inserts tab.) The synth makes a bit of a strange noise, but I figure it is just the default tone. I open the synth's browser and select the first pad preset, figuring I will push a few of the chord pads in Cubase to really hear how this thing sounds. Whilst it was an interesting tone that met my ears, it was a little weird. Not my cup of tea. So onto the next preset. Push a chord pad. Hmmm, this one is weird too. Next preset. It is kind of funky but still almost sounds out of tune. Next preset. Errff what the hell is wrong with this thing?!! Did I accidentally hit the master pitch?... Nope it's at 0. So there I am scratching my head for like 20 minutes, thinking this new synth is a POS. I was even about to google whether that synth has any known tuning problems in DAWs. But instead it turned out I am just a moron and Octavox can definitely make some weird sounds...🤪
  9. Same here. It took about three days for Izotope to respond. And as for Groove 3, I too waited for that $79 renewal offer and it never came. All they offered was the standard sale pricing of $99.
  10. MPS 3 was released on the 3rd of October, so the 7th of August should be within the 2 months grace period.
  11. You might not believe this, to be honest even I can't fully wrap my head around the fact that I actually found something useful on Gearslutz. But yeah, a guy on there was saying the grace period is 2 months. So I took a shot and contacted Izotope support. I received the following message in response to asking if the grace period was two months: "From: Alexis (iZotope) Hello, Thanks for reaching out to us, I will be more than happy to help you. The answer is yes! I am happy to share with you a Serial Number to activate a copy of the Music Production Suite 3 at no cost!"
  12. My account was only showing the standard loyalty upgrade and whilst I almost hit purchase on the upgrade to MPS 3. I held off because I was a bit miffed that I had only just got MPS 2.1 about two months ago. Well I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger, because guess who fell into the free upgrade grace period?... THIS GUY! 😎
  13. Glad you got it working in the end! But wow I'm a little surprised at the rigmarole as Corel programs have always worked for me on my systems.
  14. It all ran smoothly here and I am running Windows 10 as well. I would recommend running the installs with administrator privileges.
