  1. Because there isn't one? At least not in the manual.
  2. FWIW, Scarbee Mark 1 is part of Scarbee Vintage Keys that comes with NI's Komplete (since at least v9). Don't know if that qualifies, or not. This is Kontakt library, so it will work with Kontakt Player.
  3. Same price as my new PreSonus Studio 1810c? I'll pass.
  4. Thankfully, the Serif website downloads FAST! Just bought the Chalk Dust, Abstract Paint Bundle and Abstract ABC brush packs. Just the Abstract Paint bundle is over 3 GB, so good thing!
  5. I just checked the Serif (Affinity) website for video tutorials for the 3 apps. Only 213! That'll take some time. 😜
  6. Sounds reasonable. $25 gone. Thanks for the head's up. I'd never even looked at the Publisher page, so had never seen the Studio Link info. EDIT: I always hated Microsoft's Publisher. Even though I have an Office 365 subscription, I never use it. And I tried.
  7. Really happy with Designer. Finally able to pick up Photo (didn't see any BF sale; glad they got around to one). No need for Publisher, but it would be nice to have a video editor in their style. I had been using Corel's VideoStudio, but they're one of the bastidges that puts download timeouts in place. I have ALL of the installation files saved except for the installer itself. No way to recover it, so heck with them, and I bought NCH's Video Pad instead. Small. Fast. Capable enough for making videos for YouTube.
  8. I got lucky, I think. Maybe it's because I purchased Amplitube 4 Max less than 12 months ago. I don't know. But when I went to install it on the laptop I bought to replace my old desktop, the IK installer showed both AT4 and AT5 available for download. I thought "ha", just like Arturia with Analog Lab 5...available for download, only to find out it's a demo version. After a couple of days, I said "what the hey" and installed and "authorized" it. Turned out to be the full AT5 with Max (could be the AT4 Max), but my additional purchases (SVT2 and Leslie) were also there. And after all the beatching I did for not being offered an upgrade price. If there had been one, I'd have stupidly and unnecessarily spent the money on it.
  9. Yes. The new VST3 plug-in. It's up to v3.x already. Really nice way to work with BiaB. This is for the original release. Much improved and extended since this video was made.
  10. I bought mine off of this page: PreSonus 1810c - new There were 11 left when I bought mine. Now there are 7 left. So they're selling about 1/day. Not bad.
  11. My new 1810c is arriving tomorrow, so I can't review it yet, but I expect it function as a worthy successor to AudioBox 44VSL (that stopped being a VSL when Win10 shipped; I've had it a long time). I bought it on Amazon on Monday. The price then was $399. So, you're getting a suprise deal! I'm really looking forward to having 2 headphone drivers that support different mixes. That'll be fantastic for my niece and I doing voice-overs.
  12. Here's the method I use (adding them to the Kontakt Factory Library). Great tip from In Session Audio.
  13. Don't have it in hand yet (ships tomorrow), but I bought a laptop to replace my early 2012 Dell XPS8500. I bought a Lenovo ThinkPad P17, spec'd as follows: Configuration Details ● Processor: 10th Generation Intel® Core™ i9-10885H Processor with vPro™ (2.40 GHz, up to 5.30 GHz with Turbo Boost, 8 Cores, 16 Threads, 16 MB Cache) ● Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64 ● Display Type: 17.3" UHD (3840 x 2160) IPS, anti-glare with Dolby Vision™, HDR 400, 500 nits ● Memory: 32 GB DDR4 2933MHz (2 x 16 GB) ● Hard Drive: 1 TB PCIe SSD ● Warranty: 1 Year Depot or Carry-in ● AC Adapter: 230W ● Graphics: NVIDIA® Quadro® RTX™ 3000 6GB ● Camera: IR & 720p HD ● Fingerprint Reader: Fingerprint Reader ● Keyboard: Backlit with Number Pad - US English ● Wireless: Intel® Wi-Fi 6™ AX201 802.11AX (2 x 2) & Bluetooth® 5.1 with vPro™ $4829 list. Sale price $2799 direct (sale ends tomorrow, 12/30). I added the Thunderbolt 3 dock ($420 list). With an additional $400+ senior discount, I bought both for just under $3000, tax included! Then I went nuts and bought a Samsung 2 TB X5 Thunderbolt 3 drive (for samples), 2 Samsung 2 TB X7 USB 3.2 drives (one for Documents folder and one for my ripped CD collection), and a Pioneer 4K blu-ray/DVD player/burner. Merry Christmas to me, and to everyone of you!
  14. One other note. When I first started Native Access, it kept failing, trying to download an update. I had to d/l the latest installer from the NI website and run it over my current install, but after that, it started up fine, and there was Yangqin. Maybe you need the latest version of Native Access for some reason? IDK.
