  1. What is the best, most elegant way to convert a multi tracked drum recording to MIDI, either wholly or partially (e.g., kick and snare), such that it could then be used to trigger a drum VSTi like BFD3 or Superior etc.?
  2. V-Vocal was a crashfest ... Thank the Lord for Melodyne! Let that abomination rest,dead and buried in its artifact filled grave.
  3. 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.
  4. Using the IK one here. Works great! https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/trwhite2a/
  5. Kudos for the Mackie Control enhancements, especially wrt the Pro Channel! This is spot on... my top row buttons are getting a right good work out now! They were feeling left out.
  6. 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.
  7. Most dynamic processors have a gain reduction meter. To visualize by means of a waveform... is highly unorthodox, not something mixers typically do. And in the end the advice is always to use your ears and not your eyes.
  8. Sounds like you have the PCI card. I updated the RME USB drivers on 2/25 and nary a problem here. Smooth as silk.
  9. To each their own. ... never been a problem for me using bundle files.
  10. I was away for several years so I missed the introduction of the Pro Channel (the X years?). Anyway, I think it is under rated inasmuch as I am getting great results with just the built in Pro Channel processing. Any 411 on where it came from, who wrote the code etc.? The eq especially punches above its weight. I've been underwhelmed by not a few third party eqs that promised to be all that but in the end were just a pretty face. Not withstanding the inevitable hardware emulations (Pultec etc.) which have their own vibe, and which I do dig, the Pro Channel gets the lion share of use in my sandbox. Just looking to learn more about the Pro Channel.
  11. Mackie Control/MCU. It just works.
  12. I tried another DAW a while back and although I found it lacking in some regards, it has a nice feature that analyzes the relative polarity of every track and suggests which ones might benefit from flipping. It gives you various choices and tells how much dB increase it will yield.
  13. Thank you Noel! So glad you were able to figure it out. Sure enough, that works.
  14. I sent a Dropbox link for the crash dump file, to noel.borthwick@bandlab.com
  15. @Noel Borthwick Did the crash dump I sent ever yield any useful clues?
  16. To be clear, does this issue occur when exiting by closing the browser window (i.e., the "X" in top right corner), when closing the file (File>Close), or both? My issue is only with the File>Close function. If I close the whole window it does not hang.
  17. I hope this isn't taken as unwelcome advice but Melodyne is really a lot better than VV ever thought of being even on it very best day,
