  1. V 1.8.1 Beta 1 just released... The update includes: Integration of Vocal Mode into the Parameter Panel for dynamic modulation of voice timbre (Pro edition required). Improved neural vocoder for male vocals, resulting in enhanced sound quality in the bass range. Updates to the available masculine AI voice databases to fully utilize the new capabilities of the neural vocoder. Make sure to update both the Synthesizer V Studio editor and the voice database to the latest version to access these new features. https://dreamtonics.com/synthesizer-v-studio-1-8-1b1-update/ The beta update can be downloaded from that link, and also the male voice databases except for Asterian (Eclipsed Sounds are still working on the update for him, so watch this space).
  2. @Stavv @Brian Lawler is correct, Synthesizer V is VST3 only. On my system, the plugin is located in this folder (it looks like you already have this folder included in Cakewalk so you should be good to go)... C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3\ and the plugin (as per Brian's post) is called synthv-studio-plugin-x64.vst3 It should appear under Dreamtonics when you add an instrument (see below).
  3. Coming soon new voicebank Synthesizer V AI Ninezero, based on the vocals of singer-songwriter, "Ninezero." Best suited for hard rock and metal. Sounds like a must buy to me! Check out the latest demo.

    Also, look out for an email from UVI with an additional $20/20€ off Quadra Traveler if you own World Suite (valid through January 31st).
  5. That's probably enough to push me over the edge. Cheers Fleer 👍
  6. Yeah, seems like a good deal for all the additions from VC8. What are your thoughts on Piano v2 vs v3?
  7. Not seen this before on a 3rd party website. At £89 I'm tempted. Not sure why they have separate options for upgrading from VC8 and VC1 - 7 when the upgrade price is the same. Would have expected the upgrade from VC8 to be cheaper.
  8. Digital Synsations - ChangeLog 2.0.0 --------------------------------------------- - [ADD] 140 new presets - [ADD] 4751 new samples - [ADD] New arpeggiator - Updated GUIs for Retina
  9. Yeah, my thoughts exactly so I gave them a miss. Trying hard not to keep buying stuff I already have covered
  10. I paid for my copy and still use it more than any other LA2A plugin.
  11. Hi Nigel, I have only just got around to doing the v2 upgrade myself, and one thing I noticed was that some of the presets have the mod wheel assigned to volume with some also defaulting to zero. So initially I couldn't hear anything from those libraries on certain patches e.g. bass single on Atma, until I happened to move the mod wheel. Maybe that's the issue for you, idk but worth mentioning just in case So these do seem to work ok in Cakewalk for me. Two of them I bought or got for free from PluginBoutique (Atma, Orakle) and the other one is a freebie direct from Mntra (Rasa). I also asked support about the other free library I had (Frcture), but they said that this is no longer supported in v2.
  12. You will get stray notes Aidan; I used to with my GR-55/Godin setup. It's the nature of the beast with guitar/MIDI where the notes are detected/translated by "sampling" the notes being played. To minimize this: I have found that tweaking the Gain, Tone and Curve knobs can yield good results (start with the gain). Try using a different pickup on the guitar and make sure the input is as clean as possible - you are trying to give the note detection its best chance. Try using an electro-acoustic guitar with piezo pickup - can give better detection compared to an electric one due to the cleaner signal making it easier for individual pitches to be detected. Remember that the way these things work, it can take at least half a cycle to work out the frequency or pitch. This means that the lower pitches will take longer to work out that the higher ones (also used to happen with the GR-55 as it's a method limitation rather than a hardware vs software thing). If you know this then you can do things like playing a bass part on higher strings or higher up the neck and then just transpose it down in MG2. The detection will happen faster due to the higher pitch and will also result in faster tracking.
  13. @Brian Lawler that Timber is very well done and hardly any vibrato on Asterian; but those spoken parts - wow! Here's my take on a classic with Kevin and Solaria. Turns out the backing track is made from the original recording, where Tom Scholz and co presumably didn't use a metronome or click track. The tempo varies from 115 to 120 bpm according to Melodyne making it a nightmare to try and get Kevin and Solaria to follow! I had to export the voice parts in standalone SV, import them into Cakewalk, and then cut and move the vocals to match the timing of the track. It's not perfect but I'm getting there. I'm only using the backing track as I couldn't find a really good MIDI version. https://soundclick.com/r/s8nbip
  14. @Brian Lawler Here's the version with less vibrato although I might have gone a bit too far! https://soundclick.com/r/s8nbhp
  15. Thanks @pseudopop 👍🏻 Their tax calculation seems a bit iffy for most people. They added just over 20% VAT for me, so more or less correct for the UK.
