    Could we achieve true panning using two mono tracks instead of a stereo track and panning each track as needed?

    One of the forum contributors in the oldie days, Jonas Aras, created a template that routed everything this way.

  2. It's good that you are referencing  a variety of commercial tracks to judge how well you match up.  Especially ones in similar genres.  Gain staging from start to finish is the heart of the matter, always has been, always will be.  Yellow is the new red!

  3. I have the paid-for Essentials, will try it out.  Obviously a highly isolated kick or snare should work better.  Overheads would probably be difficult if not impossible with a monophonic algorithm.  Re. Drum Replacer, I think that is a simple canned sample and not the multi-sampled 256 velocity layers full monty like you get with BFD3.  Doesn't sound very sexy....

  4. Re. Melodyne, I would need the Editor right, not the Essential? 

    I have v-drums and I normally play them and record the MIDI to trigger BFD3, but I want to get real drums for the fun factor.  Banging on mesh or rubber is like kissing your girlfriend through a screen door.  I've recorded other drummers here before, they brought their own drums and it came out fine.  But I just want to keep open an option to use multisampled drums to provide variety so not every song is the same sound.

    I thought that triggers might be the way to go.  Are they expensive or wonky to set up?


  5. Have you tried some of the mixer presets?  I have mine set up to output as a single stereo channel and mix the drums inside of BFD3.  Toggle through the presets and see which one works best for you.  Try enabling the loudness option for any kit pieces that are unruly and dial in the dynamics to your taste.

    Also, when I tried launching the bandlab assistant to do the latest update, I would just get a white rectangle and nothing more.  I opened task manager and found 4 instances of the assistant running.  After ending those, I was able to open the assistant again, but had to re log in.




    When I have had this issue it seems to be that my broadband connection has flaked out for whatever reason (modem hiccups?).  I think both Bandlab and Cakewalk "phone home" somehow and if the connection isn't there, it freezes.  I know, I know we've been told it is possible to work offline but.... experience says otherwise.
