  1. It's certainly somewhat newer terminology for the Windows environment, but it makes sense to adopt in my view it as it's more descriptive of what one is referring to.
  2. I don't think this is right and is actually the cause of the confusion. A program is a set of instructions, the result of which is an application. Said another way, an application (app) is the culmination of many programs. Programs are written. Applications are used. I think calling applications programs is mostly a result of Windows calling the folders the Program File folders. The executable for an application is found in these folders, so many people just call applications programs.
  3. Have you looked at the Chris Hein brass? I don't have it but i have the violin and i find that excellent.
  4. As a workaround for Firefox specifically you can change the value of layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config.
  5. You might like to take a look at Tassman for physical modeling. Still works perfectly on Windows (and my guess probably will for a long time to come despite being discontinued). Keep an eye on AlphaForever too as that's new, maintained and updated. Hopefully it'll surpass Tassman's ability at some point. As for the thread, nah i don't use hardware... although i wish the hardware manufacturers would release their stuff in software form more often! 😂 I'd buy Analog Heat in a heartbeat.
  6. I find this is a laptop thing. Don't forget to bind all the locations to a hotkey so they're easy and quick to get out the way when not using them. For what it's worth, plugin interfaces are too small on a desktop sometimes and i have to lean in see what something says 🧐 My desktop interface for reference:
  7. You seem to be making a pickle! I would suggest you try and keep your filing system organised; the result is not less demand on the CPU etc. but rather less potential headaches due to not having to stumble around in a mess. I would not, and don't, let installers do their own thing since letting them do their own thing is a surefire way of adding disorganisation to your filing system. Some installers are better than others of course, but you don't know this until after you've clicked instal and then it's too late (e.g. look at your root folder). For example, i have 2 main folders for plugins (Program Files\vst plugins and Program Files\Common Files\VST3) and inside those folders i have developer folders for their respective plugins. I got rid of all 32 bit plugins, but previously i had the same folders in the x86 folder also. This aids in organisation as things are in the same places. I would delete all that extraneous stuff from your root folder. If the plugins don't work i'd delete them and reinstal with organisation in mind. If they're adamant about installing crap to your root folder i'd delete the plugin and write a complaint email to the developer.

    It's not futile or dangerous. If you keep getting a message telling you that you've run out of virtual memory then increase it. More RAM is the better option though, which you've done.
  9. There's no way to direct that instrument to the samples. The .instruments folder will have to go next to the .dll. It's working for me. Didn't crash. I'd try again. Try placing the .dll and the .instruments in their own dedicated folder, like VST>Sonatina>.dll/instruments
  10. Sounds like the VST can't find the samples. If there's no way to direct the instrument to the samples then try placing the samples in your VST folder.
  11. Not sure, but if you're hitting full scale at -3dB centre then you'll be over when summing to mono.
  12. You can get to the snap values in all but small size, even collapsed (hover cursor over the module). You can also get to some (but not all) by right-clicking the toggle button. If Ticks is your secondary goto then set it up as your alternate value like Craig suggested.
  13. It's clipping because you're using -3dB centre. This is a perceived volume. If you want the panned level to be the same level when you sum it to mono you should choose -6dB centre.
  14. User settings (particularly apps), desktop, tasbar, anything related to 'at log on', user reg keys and offline web content. The user folder also contains the appdata folder. I do this. I have 3. An admin account, which is very seldom needed, and 2 user accounts. One for work and one for entertainment. It keeps the environments and user directory focussed, which i prefer. It's not dual boot. Just users.
  15. SSD endurance is based on write not read/write. The spec sheet of the drive will tell you its endurance. You can still read from an SSD after you can no longer write to it. I use HD's for consuming media; iTunes, video, etc. Games i put on an SSD as it noticeably decreases load times.
