  1. Hopefully someone who knows a bit more about the nuts and bolts of the Apro settings will be along soon and will be able to help more than I can 🙂
  2. That seems very strange not to have any control maps installed! - I agree you shouldn't need to start from scratch! It was a bit fiddly getting mine to work and I can't remember exact details - just checking - does your controller surfaces dialogue look like this?
  3. Sorry I can't help you with video or images - I think there are more explanations in that legacy forum that may be able to help if you search. The control map as far as I can recall is stored within the Apro - press the left button below the LED display twice and it will then give you the option to choose a control map - I think it may be set at 0 as default but if not set it as that by turning the dial and pressing when it gets to 0 Have you installed the Apro programme that should have come with the A300? If it haven't got it you can download it from the Roland website I think I haven't delved any deeper than using the standard control map but only really use the keyboard, knobs and sliders and transport bar - all work ok though I have never got the pads to work but haven't spent any time trying to
  4. Must admit I just stuck with the standard Sonar Control map 0 or 19 rather than delving deeper as described in the link
  5. I've got an APro 800. Takes a little setting up. Read through this from the legacy forum which should help 🙂 http://forum.cakewalk.com/m/tm.aspx?m=2181430
  6. I was running through the different rhythm patterns on Ample Sound guitar the other day and it crashed Cakewalk - I was going through quite quickly though so that may have been the problem
  7. Happy New Year to all - thanks for the help when I've needed it!
  8. No it wasn't! 6 samples which I immediately deleted!
  9. Cheers Larry. Seems like a very slow download for 175Mb! Not sure if it is my connection on their server
  10. I got the Defender notification and ignored it and installed anyway. Occasionally does this on less well known company programmes that have exe. files but as long as I think the company is legit I install
  11. From what I heard in the 32 bit version I don't think it's one for me - a bit too grungy! 🙂
  12. Thanks for this one Larry! Got it installed but it isn't finding the banks of sounds in the 64 bit version - I can get it to load individual sounds but not the full banks. I can load banks in the 32 bit version. Anyone tried it and had same problem? I've stored the banks in the Documents folders as instructed. One issue is that the presets are described as VST3 presets
  13. oh and forgot to mention I have been using onboard sound for years (like you I'm midi and VSTI only) and found it fine. I'm sure the quality would be better with a dedicated device but as a hobbyist with only limited time for music creation on board has served me fine 🙂
  14. re learning resources check out the Creative Sauce tutorials (you'll find links to them in the Tutorials section further down the forum). Mike makes learning fun and easy to follow. Lots of other great resources there too!
  15. Some pretty good sounds in Swatches so far - definitely worth the download!
  16. Thanks Mike - another great video. I'd never even heard of gain staging before your tutorials!
  17. Thanks Starship - just downloaded Swatches - will have a play later!
  18. Enjoyed the live chat whilst I was doing the washing up earlier Mike 🙂
  19. Thanks very much both. I'll have a go at David's instructions tomorrow as I'm off to watch a jazz gig tonight Variorum you could definitely class me as faint of heart! 🙂 Very much appreciate all the help!
  20. Reading around 'modulation only controls dynamic level in Spitfire, while expression controls the actual volume' - '"dynamics" does mean "timbre and level", and not just timbre'. i don't think there is an equivalent to expression in the Garritan CC list that David posted earlier? So I have tried to delete the expression CC in my tracks but if I erase the controller data the notes disappear as well - I assume there is a way of deleting the controller data without deleting the notes - or just turning the controller off? I've had a look in the online help and although it says that you can disable an automation parameter by right clicking on the automation read button I think this may just be for audio track automation? I have looked at both my midi and VSTI tracks - I am sure I must be missing something obvious but after a good half hour I am stumped! Hopefully someone will rescue me!
