Re: Is Omnisphere really special ?

"Mon Cher Compatriote" Thanks. OK, Omnisphere raised up quite a stir. What I try to understand is why . Is it because of the monstrous amount of samples and presets ? Because it's got everything but including the kitchen sink ? Or because - as I hope - it allows you to do some things that you can N...

Re: HQ Sampler/Hardware w/ Ableton type workflow.

I had the SP-404 for a while but never really got into it because Ableton does the same thing in a more innovative and faster way. So I sold it, bought a MPD24 and never looked back. There is really no hardware out there that can replace Ableton, if you want the workflow and hands on control then a ...

Re: What is the Oldest Piece of Gear in Your Studio?

I think it's a tie between my Jen SX-1000 and the Yamaha Electone organ, both went in to production in 1978.

+1 on Reaktor but Alchemy is my go to granular synth and it can do a whole lot more.

Re: How fast are your tracks?

I'm just starting to get into trying to do some dance tracks, and most of my stuff seems to be grooving best at around 115. Maybe I'm just getting old. :lol: Nah don't think so, IMO if you want something to be groovy and dance friendly at the same time it's best to stick with the 105 - 125 BPM rang...

Re: VST filters - Who's got the best Filter plugin?

I'm mostly using Runciter from the Uhbik bundle and the Legacy MS-20fx plugin.

http://www.uhbik.com/

I also own Tone2 Filterbank 3 but probably gonna sell it soon, so if anybody is interested it's up for grabs.

Re: NI Reaktor 5 BUG

did you try to get in touch with the NI custumer support? I cannot given the unlegitimate version of my reaktor. they might have an answer to this problem. Not yet no, but from what I have heard they aren't the most responsive company out there. Also this problem only recently popped up for me beca...

Re: NI Reaktor 5 BUG

I had this problem, it's not to do with live - it happens when reaktor is running on its own too. I just assumed the err "trial" version of reaktor I was using was some dodgy hack. Are you using a legitimate reaktor 5? Well it has to do with Live in my case because it's not happening in standalone ...

Re: NI Reaktor 5 BUG

Reaktor 5 has been buggy for me also in Live 7, I haven´t encountered the problem you are talking about but Live regularly crashes on me when I'm using Reaktor. It seems to be a Live related problem because it's rock solid in Logic.

Re: Keyboard Samplers: Where to start?

basic/toy - a Casio SK-1 or Sk-5 is the good-ole' 'press a button, talk, and then play it back on any key" type of sampler. No mic to connect (it's built in), instant fun, easy as can be, and very lo-fi. And cheap. There is a mic input and line in on the SK-5 but I still wouldn't wanna have it as m...

Deformer

Seems like a cool box of tricks for all you strictly hardware guys, I personally have a lot of software that does similar things and a Kaoss Pad if I want the hands on approach. But I still thought there might be somebody here that would be interested in it.

Re: Ableton Live 8 - WOW!

Welcome, you're now one of the enlightened! Live is fantastic for manipulating audio and midi, it's the ultimate sequencer/sampler. Well I'm still switching between Logic and Live but Live gets more of my time with every version. I'm hoping that they take midi to the next level with Live 9, then it...
