Re: Synthstrom Deluge

Wow, it supports weird time signatures . Like what? Maybe 5.67/3.89? Actually, yes. Every track (even within kits) can have independent lengths, from 64th bar loop (maybe more, unsure of resolution atm) up to 300000+ bars. So yeah, a bit more than a one bar loop. Really, its strength is the sequenc...

Synthstrom Deluge

Been a few years since I've checked in here... I gassed for a bit, and then ordered something that I'm completely surprised to see no talk about here (sort of I suppose... this is a 'vintage' forum after all) My goodness people. The groovebox to kill all other grooveboxes is almost done being made. ...

Re: Spectralis OS development is moving ahead...

I'm not sure what you mean by this or if you arrived to this conclusion from history (like [relatively] few own/use the machine and therefore...) or by design -like Joerg made this with only a few people using in mind so he purposely... Lol... Very good sir... My faulty learned definition of esoter...

Re: Spectralis OS development is moving ahead...

Yeah, honestly OS wise, I dont think the tempest is all that much better then the speck was when I had mine, and I dont see nearly as many people complaining about the tempest. LOL... thats a can o worms... taking YEARS for updates being a bit of an issue. But still, Dave smith is selling units lik...

Re: Spectralis OS development is moving ahead...

Though having two drum machines that I need to stop in between song changes really irks me... The tempest does that? Meh.. Yeah, that was an issue for me too with the spectralis.. I came up with a couple solutions that keeps the sound going during song changes during my live sets, so I got over tha...

Re: Spectralis OS development is moving ahead...

It's always a bad sign though, when people refer to a synthesizer as a "beast". Always? Not in my case. The Spectralis is an excellent example of why one shouldn't buy an instrument based on promised features. In this case, as I recall, there were lots of advertised features when the Spectralis 1 w...

Spectralis OS development is moving ahead...

In case you were ever turned off by the 'incomplete' state of the Spectralis's OS, an update has finally rolled out, with more updates in the work... Radikal is a small company, and I believe its taken so long just due to money issues - to be able to just pay the programmer (and who knows what other...

Re: a big difference in the virus ti and virus ti2 plugins?

meh... who can say? With so many combinations of platforms and configurations of hardware and software, I think its amazing anyone could make one piece of software work across the board (for the most part). I'd be surprised if *everyone* using the virus control software on win7 has problems. I run a...

Re: a big difference in the virus ti and virus ti2 plugins?

My only complaint is that I can't seem to figure out how to export my patches from the TI to my computer for storage so I don't have to permanently destroy a patch every time I want to design a new patch on the machine. I back up my banks with a sysex dump using midiox. Restoring is a snap. Works w...

Re: a big difference in the virus ti and virus ti2 plugins?

Once and awhile, for certain projects, I use my TI desktop in Ableton in full TI mode. No issues. winxp.

There are no differences in this regard with anything else in the Ti family.

Oh, and, there is only 1 instance. 16 parts, but only one synth.

Re: synths: more with less OR less with more?

I've been sitting on my Spectralis+virusti combo for a couple years now. I process some beats n samples for use in the speckie in my DAW, and thats it. No walls in sight. I just keep going deeper and deeper.

(airbase99 and a couple kaoss pads too I suppose are worth a mention..)

Audio interface with 7.1

A friend of mine in getting into production a bit, and is looking for an interface that will still accommodate his 7.1 setup... My quick googling around comes up with nothing. Not sure if im getting the right keywords... - anyone know of an interface with some decent inputs, and have a 7.1 optical o...
