Re: Can you achieve a full mix with few instruments?

The amount of successful bands which have consisted of bass, guitar, drums and vocals says yes, and with the right playing you can easily "fill the mix" with one or two instruments. Distortion is a good way to fill the sound up, as are vocoders and filters etc. Modulators such as chorus' and phasers...

Re: free rack extension checker

Seeing the line6 units on the discontinued page makes me sad. Still hate the new softube units. Got the functionality back with VST support but daaaamn the dsp usage. If you have PODFarm you still get the VST version, including the Elements versions. No real difference in workflow, but it gives you...

Re: Oenkenstein Audio Rumble Synthesizer Song Challenge

Tough time of the year to get high numbers of entries - a lot of folks are not about, or have less time than usual due to going on holidays etc. Please don't take this as a signal that the Song Challenges are becoming less popular :)

Hi Thomis,

For this type of thing you would likely be best off doing it on eBay/Gumtree/Craigslist etc.

Best of luck, and maybe one day we'll see you again :)

What have you read? Do you have lots of .reason files on an iCloud server?

Hi, What exactly are you meaning by "pop-ups" - is it the "Computer Too Slow" message? Also which MBP are you on - the specs?

The best that's in there is actually Subtractor, but you need to learn a little CV trickery to really make it happen - thus, you won't just find presets doing it for you straight off the bat. :) So, down to Presets Valley we go - In the world of RE's my pick would be Korg PolySix/MonoPoly, although ...

Re: Best place to buy VST? Directly from developers or from an online store?

Shopping for VSTs is new for me, and I was wondering if there are some advantages or inconvenients to buy all my VSTs from the same place (when possible). Not likely I'm used to the Propellerhead shop from where it is very easy to sync all my Rack Extensions. Not possible. Would I get something sim...

What is the point of NKI's in the NN-XT when you would need to have Kontakt to use them anyway, and could just load that up? Just curious as I see that Ableton used to be able to do this, but with no indication as to what the benefit was. Is it just a system resources thing? You can put vsts in ref...

Refills would do better if nnxt was updated to support more formats like nki or sfz. Or a rack extension.

Are ReFills still something you would like to invest in? Currently, no.

The natural next step is to upgrade Reason in such a way that RE's can ...

Re: Sound breakup/hyperthreading/ UAD plugin

Hyperthreading isn't an exact science, and some CPU's do it better than others. My own i7 doesn't handle it at all well, and even on a top of the line Xeon you'll only get a small-ish benefit from it - about 20% speed improvement is considered excellent, but it's more likely to be a bit less.

Re: Be honest, do you use presets often?

I'm most likely to use them when I'm demo-ing a device. After that if I'm looking for a sound whilst in the groove, I'll typically program it myself, but this is dependent on the synth/sampler that is being used. A cool trick in this regard is to only use a preset for the first new sound of the day,...

Re: Please re vote! Last time you purchased an RE? Will you still support REs?

Good plugs are good plugs, regardless of format.

Of course, there is the ongoing support for RE's but I don't think VST buyers will be put off by that - more likely it will piss them off further down the line. It is still something which is necessary to consider, though.
