Re: Deals On Gear and Software

And then once you have Izotope Studio, which comes with Melodyne Essentials, upgrade to Melodyne Assistant for $99 from Sweetwater.

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

Apparently, iZotope is having a sale. This is a great summer for blowing tons of money and supporting the software you may have used illicitly. https://www.izotope.com/ Ozone Standard: $99 (reg $249) Ozone Advanced: $199 (reg $499) Neutron Standard: $174 ($249) Neutron Advanced: $279 ($399) Neutron+...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

So... BFD had a 1/2 off on expansions sale. Look, it was a high-pressure situation past the "sale date". Okay, yes, I spent too much money on drum samples this past week. I have a problem. But hey, it's better than other hobbies... like cocaine or PCP. Anyway, the point of this update is that - afte...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

I'm going to give an update to those who are riveted and on the edge of their seats about my Fake Drum Journey. Every spare minute I've had has been spent listening to the same midi track over and over with different samplers, samples, and FX. I bought some Analogue Drums kits for Kontact. I like th...

Re: Nur Ein Site Redesign

I went down a web performance rabbit hole because fluffy had a complaint about 'responsive design'. I don't know if this is the original reason for the complaint, but some techy people might find it fascinating. Problem: Chrome scrolling is slow, causing "unresponsive" UX artifacts. (Safari works as...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

After more playing around with Komplete, I think the real issue I have is that the Native Instruments drum packages just aren't what I want in fake drums. They are easy to drop in, play-ready. It takes way too much time for me to get them setup the way I want, and I think the samples kind of sound c...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

Well, now I just want to mic my own drums. The terrorists have won. (jk that’s insane- I’m probably getting some of the Analogue kits later)

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

Oh no! Now I have more things to consider, stop that. Though the Room Sound looks pretty cool... I just want one user interface with all the flexibility to do all the samples from all the kits... :( Like, I've got to remember what each one of these things sounds like and open the right Native Instru...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

Hmm, Analogue Drums look like interesting Kontakt-friendly drum additions that might more easily mix and match...

But now I'm wondering if I should just save up for Superior Drummer 3... something about hit smoothing between cymbals for realism. Except SD + expansions is now talking $1000+ alone.

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

like if you have multiple separate instruments it's not like they can magically pull the mixing engine out from each other or whatever I guess I assumed it would be like SD, where the one VSTi can load in samples from all their kits. In all fairness, the Abbey Road series does look like it's all th...

Re: Using Kontakt/NI drums

Nope, Toontrack Superior Drummer is EZDrummer's big brother VSTi. But, now that I'm in the NI ecosystem due to aforementioned summer sale, I'm trying to figure out my workflows. It seems kind of strange that, say, NI's DrumLab can't import samples from the other drum packages in their suite. It's li...

Using Kontakt/NI drums

Paging @fluffy @jan and whoever else chimed in so helpfully in the other thread! One of the cool things about Superior Drummer is that you can pull in samples from different kits to mix and match. I've now got like... 10 different drum kit packs. Is mixing kits a supported workflow or do I basically...

I’m assuming it’ll be a low key day as people arrive and settle in and are tired from traveling, but I don’t know yet. You’re welcome to hang out at my place while that crystallizes.

For anyone coming to my house: I have a very loving, friendly, but also skittish and protective dog. He needs proper introductions before you try to pet him or make sudden moves near him. After that, he will probably love you and do laps around the house in joy of your presence.

This is still happening pretty frequently. I’d say maybe every hour or less. I know we are all busy; just want to keep it on the radar.

That works for me as long as it works for everyone else.

I think time-wise someone could jump to Saturday, if they like? Friday looks a little crowded but maybe I missed something in this discussion.
