  1. I have three: main is Dell 24 in; right is 22 in HANNspree HDMI left a Sceptre 22" Main moniter is track view; right is used for PVR and various settings ie: Staff view, tempo etc; left shows VST and effect plug-ins. All connected to USB expansion devices. Three may be overkill, but it works quite well for me. The left monitor is attached to a monitor swivel which I can use to read PDF files etc by swinging it over my keyboard which is perpendicular to the workstation.
  2. My needs are much simpler than mixing. I am still trying to understand some of the more basic midi to audio, using EastWest and Kontakt. Additionally, how to use the basic midi learn, articulation maps. I feel that I can use GPO5, but having great distress w/Sinokinetic "Toccata" organ and EastWest strings. I'm not, at this point, too concerned about mixing. If this is not of interest to you, cam you point me in the right direction. Willard
  3. Vernon, I appreciate your effort to explain my conundrum. My limited knowledge of midi is my hangup. How do I implement a CC change. I only have a simple Alesis Q49 controller and an old Yamaha kybrd. For me at least, the q49 MANUAL isn't of much help to understand implementation, plus only pitch, mod wheel as usable switches
  4. Sonokinetic's 'Toccata' organ VST has a great short coming in that there is no way to clear organ stops once they are activated. Is it possible to set an already existing CC via the articulation map, if so which one? Their support suggested a CC message, but I've no idea where to begin. Willard
  5. I have a similar problem with an organ program. Would there be a way to a CC message or develop one in an undefined cc message ie 14, or 15?
  6. Does anyone use this organ VST? Unfortunate for me, but there is no tutorial and the manual is entirely unhelpful for me. OTOH, it is a nice sounding VST, but I can't understand how to get the most out of the interface, Willard
  7. Scook, Thanks "It may be found by clicking in the plug-in UI followed by the F1 key." This is what I was looking for. I've not used SI and didn't know about the "F1" key.
  8. Friends, I've been searching for a tutorial to help understand the implementation of the SI Bass Guitar. Is there a folder that contains those grids? Specifically, how do I get the pattern grid into my project? I like the NiceBass using either or both Pop or walking in the Jazz blues section. Any help appreciated
  9. Sorry for the late reply. I will begin to delve into your answer above and your youtube site. I truly appreciate your insight and help. Willard
  10. Why is my articulation map scripting for EastWest NOT working? I have followed the Tutorials from Tony Manfredonia, XEL OHH and Mike @Creative sauce. I've been successful w/ my scripting for BBC, but EW is a hard nut to crack for me. Below are the instruments I've chosen for 5 instances of EW - 1st, 2nd Violins, Viola, Celli, Bass: Chan:1 1st VLN NV NV NV VB RR NI Chan:2 2nd VLN Pizz RRX4 Chan3: Viola Spic Marc MOD Chan4: Celli Tremolo NI Chan5: Bassi Trill HT WT NI I have enclosed two images: EW-1 Shows 3 channels responding to the incoming midi data for the 1st Vln. EW-3 Shows my EW articulation map editor page along with tracks and the synth rack. 2 side questions: In the articulations view the Pizz & leg are in bold print, the last 3 are not, why? In the generate MIDI events I don't understand why all five articulations don't all appear in the drop down list? Can anyone see the error of my ways? As always I appreciate the expertise of this great forum. Thanks Willard
  11. Nigel, Thanks for tip. I've looked at these youtube sites with the exception of EXL's His explanation, because it dealt w/ BBC, and the way in which I am learning to use it, helped alot. Thanks Willard
  12. Hi all, I like to transcibe early music. Much of it consists of 3/2, 6/8, 4/1 time signatures. Is there a connection between ticks and tempo in order to get, for example, either 2 clicks per measure or 6? In a piece I am transcribing currently, the correlation between the Adagio mm and the actuall performace tempo doesn't jive. I adjust by raising or lowing the tempo. Can that problem be overcome? When using a multi VST - like GPO - using the keyswitch allows one to need a single instance of a part present. However, with EW Play or Kontakt etc, the extensive variety of KS articulations can not ALL be represented in one track. QUESTION: How do you approach this dilemma? Do you add the entire midi/or audio to a track; or just copy those notes that require those additional articulations to a new track? Thanks for any advice.
  13. Serendipitous playing around in the plugin manager somehow thru various deletions etc the original appeared. Sorry to bother you all. Willard
