By the way, is the Wet/Dry knob always for parallel compression? I figured it depended on the mastering fx you have set up.
If it’s always parallel compression, I’d say calling it NY Drums might be better. But again, this is a fly poop issue, and you’re busy getting a product out the door!nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 22, 2014 at 7:18 pmPost count: 27
Wet/dry nomenclature is a pretty small point, because you only have to learn that it isn’t reverb wet/dry once.
As a Logic user, anything with channels is a minor nuisance. My personal preference is to have as much as possible on the keyboard at once.nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 22, 2014 at 4:55 amPost count: 27
Okay, some first reactions from the other day and tonight.
Holy shit – those are big-ass sounds. I played the snares alone for about 15 minutes. Yeah I’m weird.
Sorry in advance if I’m missing things that are explained in the videos.
The wet/dry mastering knob doesn’t do what I’d expect, namely lowering and raising the reverb – which is the first thing I’d want to do. If wet/dry is a ganged control for something else, it should probably have a different name? And I guess one click to go to the mixer and access the stage, verb, and full sliders isn’t excessive…but my first reaction was that I didn’t want to hunt for it. I do like the x1…x8 feature, though.
A couple or few traditional programs that only have lots of single hits on the keyboard would be nice. Hitting the Key FX presets to bring up the yellow and blue keys is okay, but it’s sort of unpredictable. It would be good to have all the drums on one keyboard, maybe all the metals, filtered stuff, etc. A regular percussion module.nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 22, 2014 at 4:20 amPost count: 27nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 22, 2014 at 3:59 amPost count: 27nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 19, 2014 at 12:43 amPost count: 27nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 19, 2014 at 12:24 amPost count: 27nick batzdorfParticipantSeptember 18, 2014 at 10:03 pmPost count: 27
Probably no help here, but I want to respond:
My main machine – the one connected by copper – is running 10.9.5 and only has about 20GB free on the startup drive.
Since I have to redirect the download to another drive, I’m running your installation program on my OS X 10.6.8 laptop and having it put LADD on the drive over the network.
My brain can’t figure out whether that means the library is going over tsk tsk wi-fi twice or not, but it’s probably not as fast as a direct download.nick batzdorfParticipantMay 11, 2011 at 1:39 amPost count: 27
Unfortunately Logic’s transformers don’t know velocity, but for other transformings – i.e. routing CC1 to other things – you can easily place an on/off button in your Arrange window screenset to toggle between the transformer and bypassing it.
Other than the Kontakt script itself, I think the answer to these issues is Plogue Bidule. Its Note Velocity Remapper is the first tool that would be useful, but it has a lot of things in there.
I have some other ideas about how to handle LASS with a wind/breath controller, but I want to find out whether they’re possible in Bidule before mentioning them.nick batzdorfParticipantMay 21, 2010 at 5:04 pmPost count: 27
Okay, I read through this.
Yeah, before the update that allowed remapping – and I think what I’m suggesting is exactly what Mr. K had in mind when he added the feature, no? – I used four tracks and dealt with the aliases. But I find having the volume faders very useful, both for divisi and also just for real-time balance changes. Example: bringing up the first chair during fast runs to add definition.
What Jay is doing lets you use keyswitches, but I still prefer not having four tracks for one line. In other libraries that rely on more articulations it might be different.nick batzdorfParticipantMay 21, 2010 at 4:47 pmPost count: 27
I haven’t read this thread all the way through yet, but one thing jumped out re: Sebastian’s first reply (and Sebastian if you email me I’ll hook you up – NB at Virtual Instruments Mag dot com): I’m not re-routing cc11, I’m using it to control all the sections simultaneously. All I’m doing is using cc 12-15 as individual volume controls for each section.
And Jay, don’t make me come down there now…nick batzdorfParticipantOctober 22, 2009 at 2:14 amPost count: 27
In Logic I create a multi-instrument and connects to an instance of VE Pro. This instance of VE pro will be my string-section. Each instrument in the VE pro will be a Kontakt instrument containing all articulations (I need) from a specific string section. Meaning I want all first violin articulations to be loaded in the same Kontakt instrument, all articulations using the same midi channel and the control which articulation will be playing by key switches.
Nordkrog, that’s not working in VE Pro quite yet. You have to use one VE Pro instance per 16-channel bank for now so that you can use Plug-in MIDI instead of IAC or ipMIDI.
They’re working on it, though.
