  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. Serendipitous playing around in the plugin manager somehow thru various deletions etc the original appeared. Sorry to bother you all. Willard
  13. Hi all, I was attempting to install a new VST (w/o success) and spent too much time in the Plug-in manager. Apparently while shifting things around I screwed up. The Audio FX now shows an backup synth instrument page. How can I (do I) resurrect the Audio FX page into the Brower . I am specifically talking about the FX that appears in the 1st spot next to MIDI FX. Attached is a png the shows the Audio FX filled with an old instrument file rather than the audio files that used to appear there. Any suggestions appreciated Willard
  14. Matthew, As I study your templates more, I realize that you do what I am looking to do when you 'enable' the synth and the instrument. How do I accomplish this? Willard
  15. Thanks for that work on the template. You have all the instruments loaded wihin the "LABS orchestra" am I correct? Is there a way to combine various VST's ie GPO, E/W and spitfire into one templete and then disable loading into ram a particular patch or an entire synth, yet retain the possibilities of adding later? Willard
  16. Thanks for your reply. Just to make sure I'm on the right track. I could have a series of VST folders ie EW; GPO; listed but empty. Then when I open the template simply install what I need. IE 5 GPO tracks, 2 EW etc Thanks Willard
  17. I am developing a template but have been unable to find info on disabling a VST from loading into ram. I use BBC SO, GPO 5, easrwest string orch much more than my other orch Vst's. Generally use a number of articulations and various Vst instruments, but not in every project Is there a way to have a folder w/ eastwest present, but w/o it being loaded into ram? Willard
  18. After a forced ms upgrade this morning, my sound is non-existent. I've done the sound test w/in microsoft, the sound test with my Behringer UMC202 uphoria. I've changed my audio back and forth between 48000 and 44100, checked all connections. My drivers are updated. I don't get anysound when playing youtube videos etc. Any suggestions. I've only a smattering of ignorance w computer technology. Willard
  19. Thanks, That's all I needed. Sonivox's guidance is quite wanting. Willard
  20. I have no understanding of how to route multiple instruments from CbB to the VST. Do I need multiple instances of the VST ie Flutes Sonivox 1, Clar Sonivox 2? Or can I use a single instance of Sonivox and route channel 1 flutes, channel 2 clarinets? I've tried both but I'm missing something. Willard
  21. Somehow, I've found the files all over the place by using the search. I think it has something with the way I'm starting the file. I've been cheating and using the same file project over and over rather than my original template. That is probably where the confusion is coming in. Thanks for your help! Willard
  22. I am confused. Nornally when I save a project a new folder is added "audio". They are labled (entire mix 1 etc). A couple of my recent ptojects have not developed the "audio " folder so I have no idea where the bounced mixes went I have routed the midi thru my Addictive Keys synth. I bounce the file and can't locate any audio file. My preference says D:\cakewalk content\audio library. However I am beginning to believe that has nothing to do with this situation. Any help appreciated.
  23. I have a small SSD of 500Gb and a 900 GB SATA drive. I am going to purchase an East/West library. In order to stretch my SSD space, would it be advisable to run CbB from the SATA dr and leave all my sound libraries on the SSD. If so, can I simply redirect a new download of CbB to the SATA dr? Thanks Willard
