Re: This is my first recording with Cubase 7.5

Well done TC and welcome to the forum.

I just had a listen to your piece.

I like the Synth Sweep at the beginning !!

I was trying to anticipate what the TIME SIGNATURE was before the Drums came in. I was surprised it was in 3/4 !! :D

If you want a small crtiticism, then my only one would be the placements of the SNARE DRUM. From memory, I think you had them mostly on BEAT ONE (which can sound very 'stiff'). Try placing on BEAT 1+1/2 and on BEAT 3. It should 'loosen' up the feel and give it almost a slight 'Jazz Waltz' lilt (which I think would suit the song).

Nice work mate !!

Best,

Paul

Re: Anyone take the 'Survey'? Interesting questions.

Thanks for informing people about the survey.

It took me about 30 x mins to complete though a lot of it did not really apply to me as I do not use all the many application functions listed. Though I have used a few sequencers in the past (Korg M1, Yamaha QY20) and I am still learning Cubase.

It was interesting in that answering the questions (verbatim) really made me think and become more aware about my current compositional process.

Re: Steinberg / Arturia V-Collection

The NSK is absolutely BRILLIANT !! One of the best plug-in's I ever bought without doubt. Sounds amazing and that's just after 10 x mins of messing around on it :mrgreen:

Yes I have a Suitcase and Stage Rhodes also.

Berklee College (Mooc)

Hi folks,

I have been off the scene for a few weeks for various reasons. Anyway I plan to start being creative again real soon.

Someone kindly posted a thread (on here) earlier in the year notifying us of a FREE course with Belfast University. It turned out that (I think) I was the only person to actually do it !! lol

Anyway, Berklee (USA) are running a similar type of MOOC and it is also free.

Here is the link :-

https://www.class-central.com/mooc/506/coursera-introduction-to-digital-sound-design

You sign up, they send you a confirmation email, and then you click on the link to create your Profile.

I will be giving this one a go anyway so may see you there.

Best,

Paul

(btw - it starts next week for [I think] 6 x weeks).

Re: Steinberg / Arturia V-Collection

Just got to demoing the Jupiter 8, but I'm loading presets and when I try to adjust controls, I don't hear any changes. Is there something I need to know about this thing, or is it not working properly.

I'm going to get into a manual soon, but I thought this would have been something I could just play like any other synth.
I have only played it using a midi keyboard and changing the actual parameters directly with the mouse. This works fine. But I have not tried using a controller keyboard to alter the parameters.

Re: Steinberg / Arturia V-Collection

I am trying the obvious ADSR. Nothing. It can't be that subtle. Maybe this is a demo limitation?

Not crazy about the presets, was hoping to find something called "Power Brass".

Why might you think you have a DEMO version ?? Did you only download a 'Trial' of it ??

I thought the Presets were mostly amazing apart from the ones which are (in my opinion) too 'modern' sounding. There are some Brass patches but not the one you mention.

Re: Steinberg / Arturia V-Collection

No I am demoing it first, because I figured if I bought it, I would be looking at that combo deal and slapping myself if I ever were interested in 1 or 2 more.

Maybe they aren't quite what I'm looking for at the moment, a lot of appreg and modulation and whiny high pitch, while I'm looking for a classic synthy multi saw brass (without the long release). But there are a few I can work from, the "w JP_8_xx" are good classic-er sounds.

I'm hearing delay on some, but I don't see an FX page... is that from the appreg? I have never used this synth.

And by now I'm sure I'm limited to the patches but no controls.

Yes you are probably correct that its running in Demonstration Mode.

I agree, I am not at all interested in the modern presets with the Arp and heavy Mod patches. Its still very very good but I would have liked it to be a little more 'classic'.

I heard the exact presets you refer to regarding FX. Sounded like very heavy Delays. I will have a look into it as it also puzzled me.

Re: Steinberg / Arturia V-Collection

First thanks for responding. I am literally right in the middle of it, and need to keep going. I will probably go ahead and buy it, and hope it works. If I feel good about it, I'll still probably then get the collection and take the loss.

One thing, the weird presets do give me a feel of the range of this synth, and I am not hearing anything cheap sounding. It can do 8 bit type to ambient to core mangle. Very dynamic, and it sounds 'Roland' whatever that means.
I spent 30 x mins playing thru the sounds on one occasion and was very impressed overall. For the most part, if I purchased a REAL Jupiter 8 then this is how I would hope it would sound. It certainly has the potential to sound as 'modern day' as you want it too judging by the presets in this genre. If you had a full controller keyboard then I am certain this would be a very powerful VST to play live. And I also felt very 'inspired' when I played on it.

I think you should purchase it but preferably in a 'bundle' as I did.

If I have to time I would like to post some demo's. But at the moment I am busy with trying to get my head around FM Synthesis ! :ugeek:

Re: Dongle Durability

Thanks G-String,

I will take a look ta.

Though I am thinking I should by a new dongle and start again (as hopefully a replacement wont fall apart like my last two have). Then I could use your tape on the new dongle from the beginning.

Cheers,

Paul

Re: Dongle Durability

Steinberg took remote-access today and resolved it for me

That is soooo kool.

Yes, I have spoken to the tech support team and had beyond an EXCELLENT service each time. Not that I ever would, but this is one reason why I would never use 'crack' copies of software (and I am offered it all the time by musician friends all over the world). When something goes wrong you have nobody to turn to. :shock:

I am using the free trial of Camtasia at the moment. I tried APowerSoft and Sony Vegas and also Fraps. I thought they were all bloody awful to be honest. With Camtasia comes SNAGIT which is great for stills and screenshots.
