Step-By-Step Guide for using the Remote Control Editor

Step-By-Step Guide for using the Remote Control Editor
to customize your own plugin parameter layout for the following hardware:

Mackie Control MCU
Mackie HUI
WK-Audio ID
Avid System 5 MC
Avid Artist Series
Yamaha DM2000
Yamaha NUAGE
Cm Motor Mix
Radikal SAC-2K
Steinberg Houston
and also any other third parties hardware system that supports Mackie Control Mode (or Protocol) in the plugin editting area/section .

It is assumed that by this point, you have set up your supported hardware controller well with Cubase/Nuendo, meaning that you have successfully connected your device with the DAW via the device setup menu for usual operation. For more details about how to set up your hardware with the DAW, please refer to the appropriate info/manual page accordingly, as this guide only covers some tips on how to bring the most out of your RCE for your VST plugin control experience on your hardware.

Ok, I will try my best to explain the topic as easy as possible here and hope that I won't be bringing the convoluted stuff this time, which I allegedly did ;-) In any case, if there's any unclear section, please feel free to ask or write me.

1. To make things simple and easy to understand, let's create an empty project with a single audio track. Then insert a VST plugin (let's say the MultibandCompressor plugin from the default Steinberg plugin set) into the 3rd slot of the insert section at the channel inspector, as an example.

2. Now, regardless of which hardware from the above list that you have, there is a standard and well-defined way to "browse" or go to the insert plugin section of the mentioned audio channel on your hardware controller (and I hope you know how to do this :-)). At this point, one should see 8 insert slots available for the instant access on the hardware, where the 3rd one has been loaded with the MultibandComp in our example.

3. Enter the plugin control layer of the 3rd slot (MultibandComp) by pressing the knobtop or any other corresponding function or page button dedicated for this (depending on the standard of your own HW), one should see that part of the multibandComp parameters are listed along the encoder knobs of your device, for instance, the top 8 encoders of the MCU device. Alright, up to this point, this is where/how we control those VST things since the HW integration introduced many years ago for the listed devices...
(Something worth mentioning here is that, such hardware-based focus-oriented workflow in different function layers like Channel EQ, Channel Inserts, Sends, etc are not available on the generic remotes in general, as it requires some extra MIDI specifications that are only offered by protocols such as Mackie Control, EuCon, etc)

4. For all VST plugins delivered by Steinberg, a well-thought layout of the underlying parameters has been predefined from factory, thus one should usually get the usable/important controls directly on the first page upon accomplishing step 3 above. But what if you have a 3rd-parties plugins or the pre-defined layout by Steinberg does not fit your actual use case or workflow? Let's say, the order or the naming of the MultibandComp parameters that you see on your hardware does not appear to be optimal enough...

5. Now, by staying at where you are on your hardware (the parameter control layer of MultibandComp, I will use MBC from now on). Open the so-called Remote Control Editor from the MBC plugin window via mouse (you usually only need to prepare once for each plugin if the param order is less satisfied )

6. If I'm not mistaken, you should see the following parameters order for Page 1 by default (from left to right, for 8 cells Standard Layout)
- Solo
- Output
- Bypass
- Threshold1
- Ratio1
- Attack1
- Release1
- MakeUp1

Now, you could...

Hide or Remove a particular parameter
1. Let's say you already have the insert slot bypass somewhere at the top layer... and the Bypass (delivered by default) is an unnecessary duplicate here that you would like to remove...
2. simply activate the "Learn mode" by clicking the "L" button near the top-right corner.
3. Then, click on the knob of the 3rd cell in page 1 (in this case the cell with the "Bypass" parameter) to get the focus on the corresponding knob encoder on the RCE GUI, one should see the blue line covering the GUI knob area indicating the focus. By pressing "Backspace" or "delete" at this point, one can remove the assignment of the current virtual HW control.
4. By pressing "Apply" button at the top-right corner of RCE, one should see the change applied immediately to your hardware... Meaning the physical knob encoder that previously controlling the "bypass" function is now empty/idle.

Rearrange a particular parameter (or the whole page)
1. One could also drag and drop a particular cell to replace (exchange or copy) it onto another cell in any page. Simply left-click on the empty area within a cell in RCE (that is any area outside the knob or switches GUI), while holding it and dragging it to your desired location of the targetted cell.

Tip1: by pressing "CTRL" or "Alt" during drag and drop operation, you gain the possibility in exchanging two cells or duplicating the same parameter onto another cell.
Tip2: One can do the same with the complete page by dragging and dropping the page body.
NOTE: this can be done in either both Learn mode or normal mode.

Rename a particular parameter
1. Let's say "Threshold1" is too long to fit in your MCU LED display.
2. On the RCE, double-click on the label part of the 4th cell of page 1 (namely the Threshold1 parameter cell) and name it as "Thd1" and confirm it with "Enter". Then click on the "Apply" button near the Top-Right corner of the RCE. Now, you should see that the name is updated accordingly on your MCU device's LED section too... (The same applies to all other supported HW)

Note: Depending on the availability of your HW, most devices only have one LED display for each knob encoder, while some high-end counterparts could provide up to three different length on different control sections, for instance, the Avid System5-MC. For the common case where you only have one single LED display for each knob encoder, please use the "Main Label" for the rename step.
Tip: The "Main Label" is also the top label you see on each cell block in the RCE page.

Define the LED ring behavior based on the parameter charateristic
1. Many listed HW supports various LED ring mode on each Knob encoder to indicate the functionality or characteristic of the corresponding Knob encoder (or the underlying parameter) more intuitively. For instance, one would usually expect the center-hooked gauge metering for a "Pan" parameter, while a left to right increment ring gauge for a "Gain" parameter, etc.
2. Depending on the availability of your HW, you can specifically define the LED ring behavior of each knob (cell) for better user experience on your HW. In practice, this does not change the behavior of the knob encoder itself but the look and feel of it.

Customize your own layout from scratch
1. Practically, it is also very convenient to redefine the whole layout right from scratch. Simply reset the whole thing via the "Reset All" button. Remove the excessive pages down to the last one.
2. Then, activate the Learn mode by pressing the "L" button
3. In learn mode, left click on the knob (or switch if applicable) of any cell to get the focus (blue line covering the control area), then go and click on the intended parameter switch or dial on your VST plugin GUI, one will assign the clicked parameter directly to the focused knob/switch in RCE.
4. Alternatively, one could also double-click on the corresponding cell knob (or switch) during the "Learn mode" to get a pop-up tree list for assigning the intended parameter similar to the channel quick control assignment workflow.

Another good example:
Let's say you only need the threshold and ratio parameters of each band but nothing else ever in your work, which in this case made up 8 parameters in total that you would like to use frequently.

Then, one could practically assign the pairs from each band onto the first page and remove the rest (assuming that the engineer never uses the rest of the parameter in the future ever again). In this case, one can assign the following parameters from left to right in page 1:
- Thres1
- Ratio1
- Thres2
- Ratio2
- Thres3
- Ratio3
- Thres4
- Ratio4

Then, remove the rest of the secondary pages (by pressing the "-" button near the edge of the page). Once done, press "Apply" and there you go.... the hardware will only provide the one and only page (a knob encoder row on the HW) with your most favorite parameters each time you access the plugin editting layer.

Important notes

1. Not to be confused with MIDI learn for the generic remote setup, the "Learn" mode in RCE is similar to the one in the channel quick control block, which allows you to learn and assign the VST plugin parameter under your mouse click to the focused knob or switch of any cell in RCE.

2. For choosing the right layout in RCE for your HW, please refer to this table:

Note that if your hardware controller is not listed on the table, but emulates Mackie Control mode that allows you to control insert strip and VST plugins from the surface. Please see your device as "Mackie Control device" and use the "Standard Layout" for your MC-compatible device.

3. Once you got the particular plugin editing layer active on your hardware. Any change made on the RCE for that particular plugin will be reflected on the fly to your hardware whenever "Apply" is triggered.

So, in general, you only have to set up once for each VST plugin that does not deliver a meaningful parameter order initially for the VST plugin editing on your HW.

Hope that this helps. Thanks!

This is just a simple hello, from me, to all of you. I bought Cubase 7 today and was pleasantly surprised to get the 7.5 license and update immediately after installing. I'm now 100% up and running and eager to jump right in. I'm sure I'll have many questions and will also hopefully be able to offer help and advice as much as my experience allows.

Happy holidays, happy new year, CHEERS!

Re: Nuendo 6.5 announced

I just updated to N6 a couple of weeks ago. I was expecting a steep learning curve and a whole bunch of problems. Instead I've found it the most intuitive and easy update in my musical career. My only problem is that my new PC occasionally refuses to recognise I have a dongle unless I remove and replace it. But Hey, I can live with that and it's probably the PC rather than the software.
The new interface is great but I got the impression from the forum that it was going to be a nightmare which makes me a bit confused about what the problems are but I have to say I am very, very happy. It even starts pretty quickly. Am I missing something?

Bring on N6.5!

Re: Manual

The Nuendo and Cubase manuals have always been some of the best I've seen.

Back when I was still running Sonar, they did a major version release with no user manual. None at all. Naturally, the users were less than thrilled and the company's response was that they'd get around to it. I started looking at other options after that as it struck me as particularly unprofessional.

I've been in the software biz since the late 80s so I know that documentation is something that few take the time to do properly. Kudos to Steinberg for hiring professionals and doing it right.

Erster Eindruck mit Cubase 8 - Mac

Hallo Steinberg,

ich weiß nicht wie ihr es gemacht habt oder was ihr gemacht habe aber ich muss ganz ehrlich zugegeben das dies die beste Cubase Version seit der 6.0 er Version ist! Obwohl ich seit längerer Zeit Mischtechnisch auf Pro Tools gewechselt bin konnte ich von diesem Update nicht finger lassen und muss wirklich eingestehen das euch diese Version wirklich gelungen ist. Die Sachen die mir aufgefallen sind

- Das Programm reagiert wesentlich fixer. Scrollen usw. läuft wesentlich schneller als vorher.
- Große Projekte (ich spreche von Projekten die über 120 Spuren beanspruchen) werden zwar nach meinem Empfinden nicht unbedingt schneller geladen aber die Reaktionszeiten beim Anfahren an eine bestimmte Position oder alleine das starten des Songs sind wesentlich schneller und das macht wirklich sehr großen Spass so!

- Alles sieht wesentlich edeler aus. Das hat der Designer diesesmal wirklich viel getan. Mir gefallen die Schriften usw. Auch wenn sie dem einem oder anderem vielleicht zu klein erscheinen sollten finde ich den Kompromiss sehr gut gelungen da dadurch natürlich auch mehr auf dem Bildschirm passt. Alles wirkt sehr viel edeler und so hat man auch mehr Spass seine 12 std am Tag vor dem Rechner zu verbringen. Bei der 7.0 gefiel mir dies z.b überhaupt nicht.

- Der eine oder andere wird zwar lächeln und wird sagen das gewisse Dinge von Logic übernommen wurden (wie z.b der Browser auf der rechten Seite) aber darum geht es nicht. Wenn etwas funktioniert muss es nicht noch einmal erfunden werden. Dieses Konzept gefällt mir sehr.

- Bounce and Place habe ich noch nicht probiert aber wenn es so funktionieren sollte wie ihr das durchgegeben habt dann wird dies im Arbeitsalltag eine sehr große Bereicherung sein da man dadurch sehr viel Zeit sparen kann. Mit der Export geschichte ging das vorher zwar auch aber teilweise musste man Routings usw. ändern um dann die richtigen Bounces zu bekommen. Finde ich so klasse gelöst und vor allem das man eine Einstellung ferstlegen kann mit der man dann schnell seine Bounces erledigen kann. Dafür gibt es ein großes Händeklatschen! :D

- Finde ich super das ihr dieses Mal nicht den Weg gegangen seit wieder neues Zeug einzupacken sondern vorhandenes zu optimieren. Den was nützen einem die Tools wenn sie nicht sauber funktionieren ....dies erzeugt nur Frust beim Kunden. Ihr habt auf alle fälle genau an den richtigen stellen angepackt und optimiert und dafür hätte ich auch freiwillig mehr bezahlt. Ich kann hier einige nicht verstehen das sie 149 Euro gerne bezahlen wenn ihnen ein paar Synths und Effekte mitgegeben werden aber 100 Euro zuviel erscheinen wenn am Kern der Software gearbeitet wurde und dann solche funktionieren wie Bounce usw. mitgegeben werden. Ich denke mal das dies nicht gerade einfach war da die Funktion ja das Signal auch variabel abgreifen kann. Ich zumindest stelle mir das nicht gerade einfach vor....

Das mit dem VCA Fader habe ich noch nicht ganz verstanden. Ich habe vorher die Kanäle verbunden und sie zum bearbeiten auf eine Gruppe geschickt wo ich auch die Sends zu den Effekten ansteuerte. Den Input oder Output der Effekte konnte ich ja immer noch angleichen. Was man ja früher auch so machte:-) Was soll den jetzt bitte anders sei? Heist das wenn ich den VCA Regler einsetze das er mir dann auf der Gruppe den Input der Effekte usw. alles mit angleicht oder wo soll ich da die Vorteile sehen? Also gefehlt hat mir die Funktion noch nicht - aber vielleicht auch deshalb weil man sie noch nicht kannte:-)

Der Media Browser ist zwar klasse aber könntet ihr für das nächste Update nicht irgendwas machen (ja ich weiß das nervt bestimmt schon weil ich jedesmal danach frage aber ich alleine aus dem Grund mit Pro Tools mische) das man Songs im Media Browser anklickt und man dann an die jeweiligen Kanal Einstellungen rankommt ohne sie zu öffnen. Der Media Browser müsste ja quasi nur die Einstellungen auslesen ohne den Song zu öffnen (Stichwort "Import Session Data") Dies würde bei großen Projekten die Arbeit immens erleichtern und vor allem auch verkürzen da man so gezwungen ist die Projekte einzeln zu starten, speichern und wieder einzuladen. Ist bei einzelnen Projekten vielleicht nicht schlimm aber bei großen Produktionen eine immense Zeitverschwendung.

Das beenden des Programms unter 10.9 (Yosemite traue ich mich noch nicht ran) dauert ganz schön lange. Länger als früher. Vorher hat er immer eine Fehlermeldung angezeigt. Das tut er jetzt nicht mehr aber dafür dauert es eine Ewigkeit. Speichert er da wichtige Informationen in der Zeit oder was passiert da? Wenigstens stürzt das Programm nicht mehr ab:-) Was mir aufgefallen ist das ihr was die Betriebssysteme angeht sehr schnell den Cut schalten einlegt. Ich gebe zu bis 7.5 mit Snow Leo gearbeitet zu haben (ja leute das funktionierte auch wenn es nicht freigegeben war). Bei der 8 habt ihr ja einen Riegel vorgeschoben und ich war gezwungen es auf meine 10.9 Partition zu installieren aber die anderen Systeme sind auch nicht gerade alt das man sie sehr schnell nicht mehr unterstützt. Tut mir einen Gefallen und läst 10.9 nicht schnell zum altem Eisen gehören. Bin ein Freund davon lange mit einem bestimmtem Betriebssystem zu arbeiten.

So und jetzt eine sehr große bitte die aber bestimmt ein Wunschdenken bleiben wird (weil schon alleine eure Controller so ausgelegt sind). Stockt bitte die Inserts auf....min 15. Ihr habt ja geschrieben das ihr an der Audioengine gebastelt habt....ich hoffe ihr habt auch diesen Punkt im Vizier gehabt. Effektive 6 Pre Inserts sind einfach zu wenig und nicht mehr Zeitgemäss...daher der Weg bei mir das ich sehr oft die Bearbeitungen auf den Gruppen weiter ausarbeite. Was nicht immer gut ist....alleine wegen der Übersichtlichkeit.

Kanäle Mono Stereo schalten - Ultrapflicht liebe Steinberger. Braucht man verdammt oft...

Und wenn ihr diese paar Punkte noch in diese knaller Software reinpackt bin ich bereit 500 Euro Update kosten zu bezahlen. Den spätestens dann brauche ich keine weitere Software mehr um schneller arbeiten zu können..... 8-)

Liebe Grüsse und noch mal vielen vielen dank für das tolle Update

Re: UR44 needs Mic input repair

Here's an update. I sent my UR44 back to Sweetwater and they in turn sent it to California's Steinberg repair center down in Southern Cal. They fixed it and now I have a perfect UR44. I was disappointed that I had to part with the unit for 2 weeks but Sweetwater and Steinberg were very professional in handling my issue.
I really like the UR44 - a lot.

Re: Handbuch Pro 8

Ja ja, das schwarze Teil sieht schon Hammer aus *neid*. Könnte man glatt denken, daß wurde im Hause Steinberg gedruckt.

Ich persönlich würde mich auch über eine Option freuen, ein solches Benutzerhandbuch kaufen zu können.

Ich finde aber auch, daß nicht nur Schelte sondern auch Lob angebracht ist. Leider bleibt häufig unerwähnt, wieviel Mühe, Zeit und Kosten mittlerweile in die sehr guten Tutorials gesteckt wird. Von der Anzahl her werden es immer mehr und es wird sehr anschaulich vermittelt, was die aktuelle Version für tolle neue Funktionen hat und Möglichkeiten bietet. Es wird doch soweit alles aufgezeigt, was für ein anständiges Arbeiten notwendig ist. Viel mehr kann das Handbuch da sicher auch nicht mehr bieten. Oder stehen da so viele unentdeckte Geheimnisse drin, dass es unbedingt notwendig ist, per sofort ein solches Handbuch zu benötigen?

Re: Steinberg UR12 Driver Issues (ver. 1.9.2)


it's not easy to comment on this issue without having more details. Which mainboard is used? Is the UR12 connected directly to the PC? If so, have you tried different USB ports (USB 2 and USB 3 if appicable)? Most importantly, what does the blue screen say? Could you send a picture of that?
Hi Ed!

Thanks for the info, I was using a USB Extender at first which was when the Blue Screens kept happening. I then followed your advice on connecting it directly to the PC this time, and I can't believe it worked! :D

It turns out that no matter what port I tried connecting the USB Extender to it resulted in the same outcome. I'm now enjoying using the interface along with my Behringer B-1 mic with it and I'm so happy, I'll give out a sample recording you ALL can enjoy! :)

Cheers and thank you! :)

Re: [BON-11577] AAF import woes on EuCon system

As Ulf had suggested via PM, I checked the MSVCR100 and MSVCP100 dlls in the /windows/system32 folder. They had somehow become corrupted. A quick re-install of the Visual C++ redistributable package (available on the Microsoft download site) solved the problem!

Impressed with VST Bass Amp

Did not expect to hear what came out of this plugin. I don't know who coded it, but if I find out I'll buy 'em a box of chocolates.

I started playing bass when I was 12. Don't play much anymore, though I still own a '78 Precision. But outside of my own playing I've recorded lots of "big name" players over the years in "real" rooms on a couple of different continents.

This thing sounds good to me. I'm almost shocked. Good one, Steinberg.

Re: Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan status update on compatibility

They should've been testing on all the dev betas that went out MONTHS AND MONTHS before the GM candidate was decided on.

I sure hope they haven't. That would be a huge waste of time. Apple has been known to break things in fairly late builds, so it makes no sense for Steinberg to go through the headache of developing on beta OS X and Xcode builds, and then finding it doesn't work after all in GM.

Re: UR22 cuts out intermittently

I think I've managed to fix the audio drop off problem on my system :)

Here is my spec;
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit SP1 Operating System
AMD FX-4130 Quad Core CPU
8.00GB RAM
BIOSTAR Group A960D+ Motherboard
ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics
Realtek High Definition Audio
Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Network Adapter

Before the fix I tried lots of things mentioned in this thread previously: stopped processes, disabled graphics card, changed USB ports/hubs etc. I even tried replacing the USB cable with one fitted with a ferrite choke (I think this made a minor difference). None of these things fixed the audio drop out until I manually updated all the drivers relating to audio, graphics and network devices. I didn't need to replace any hardware at all, I only replaced the drivers for the devices. Trying to update the drivers by choosing 'Search automatically for updated driver software' after Right Clicking the device, DID NOT update the drivers required to get things working. That was the most frustrating part of this whole process - Windows would say you already have the best driver software installed!

First I updated my Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver to V1.9.6

Then I used a program called TweakBit Driver Updater to scan my system for any out of date drivers
Once you run the program and 'Click to scan' the updater recommends official drivers made exactly for each device being updated. You don't need to Activate the program as you are only using it to make a list of the new drivers. The scan takes around 5 minutes to complete in full. Once it's done you will have a list of devices that the updater has detected. Clicking on the device in the Category column, and a popup screen will show you the information about the new driver. Just make a note of the driver version and the publisher. You can then search online for the official websites of the devices and download and install the drivers that you noted earlier.

I upgraded in this order;
1. ATI Radeon 3000 graphics
2. Realtex Network adapter
3. Realtek HD Audio

Next thing I did was to disable Core Parking on my CPU as suggested by Ed Doll. I used a program called ParkControl to do this. If you don't want to use the program, there are registry tweaks that can be done to disable Core parking. Also try selecting 'High Performance' in Power Settings and also set Minimum and Maximum both to 100% under Processor Power Settings.

Finally after everything was updated, I disabled the Network adapter in Device Manager. Now the UR22 works fine in both my DAW environment and through Windows Media Player.

I hope my post helps anyone else experiencing the same problem as I know how frustrating this is.

Re: UR interfaces audio drop outs (follow-up thread)

Update from my previous post:

Testing with an 18i20 was inconclusive, as I was unable to even get the 18i20 running.

HOWEVER, and I hesitate to even post this, lest I jinx myself, but I believe I've located the issue and it is with Intel's networking drivers for their integrated LAN hardware. Uninstalling the device from Device Manager fixed this for me (fingers crossed that I didn't just jinx myself).

Re: UR interfaces audio drop outs (follow-up thread)

Hi guys,

I decided to make an account to share my experience with the UR22mkii.

I purchased one last week, and out of the box, it was dropping out.
The USB light would flicker at the time of dropout and was exactly the issue that was being described in the previous thread and in this one.

Sometimes it will last 3 minutes, sometimes 5 seconds, then a dropout, intermittently for 1-2 seconds.

I tried just about everything I could.
I followed various ideas in the thread, I tried using a wall adapter for the power, I tried updating drivers and managed to crash my OS of Windows 10.
I spent 4-5 days trying to work it out, I almost returned it as DOA.
Then I tested it on an old mac laptop running Windows 10, and it worked without issue.

After trying just about everything software wise, I decided to try a new PSU for my PC.
Just like that, the dropouts are gone.
I had a 500W PSU in my system (a few years old now).
I bought a cheap, new 600W PSU for $40 AUD.
Fitted it and the interface is running flawlessly in Windows 10 now.

Seriously, if it's dropping out, try the power supply.
My machine was built in 2007, and it's still going strong.

Don't listen to anyone try to tell you it's software/buffering issue, no.
I had someone trying to tell me it was the AMD processor/buffering issue.
Go with your gut.

All the best.

Re: Handbuch Steinberg Houston

Ja, vielen Dank!

Irgendwie konnte ich es nicht öffnen. Auch mit unterschiedlichen Browsern nicht.

Jetzt läuft alles auch perfekt unter Win10.

I Gotta Say...Lighten Up Guys!

I realize many are disappointed Dorico doesn't do everything that their previous notation software does/did. I'm just wondering (literally) at the cries of disappointment and calling it "beta" and even "alpha"-ware.

Anyone following the blog posts for the last few years would know this is very much a work-in-progress, initial release version

There'll be bugs, problems, glitches, and admitted lack of functionality that will be fixed/added as time goes on. No company produces mature, finished software in a 1.0 release - nobody.

Even your beloved Sibelius (of which I am a huge fan) had TONS of glitches and problems, some of which persisted for generations of the software. As in, YEARS!!!! Took me so long to get playback to work without glitches I can't even tell you!!!

And don't get me started on Finale!!! Wow, it took a science degree and the patience of a saint to get ANYTHING working on it (ask me how I felt about it in 1993!). It took at least a decade before I felt it began to approach usability, and to my taste/workflow it still doesn't.

So...with all due respect, please lighten up! Give the Dorico team some credit and faith, and don't expect the world on a platter so early. I get that y'all want your pet features implemented or "it's totally worthless to me as it is and I want my money back" but maybe you should have verified that the feature you needed so badly was available before purchasing? Read some blog posts? Realize this is a brand newborn baby and don't expect it to fly just yet. And don't abandon your existing workflow yet either - learn Dorico alongside. All new sw has a learning curve, and it just *might* be that your pet feature actually is implemented but you haven't discovered it yet!

Yes I get you spent your hard-earned money on it yada yada yada, but give the baby some breathing room. Indeed you ARE crowdfunding the development of Dorico, just as you have with every other piece of software you ever used, whether you realize it or not.

Sorry for the rant but I'm a bit shocked at some of the sentiments here. Remember, this team gave us Sibelius! More goodness to come!!!

Good job Steiny!

Just wanted to thank Steiny. Delved into 9 with my newly installed hackintosh, latest Sierra. Initially i was really upset that i had to make the upgrade; cause you know, if you got working hacky one does not want to mess with it. Steiny forced me to Sierra and now that all is setup again(took about week)i'm very happy. It really does run fine and no serious blacklists(except Soothe plugin)

The sampler- i take my hat off! I hated the Halion4, too complicated for messing little things like pitch env and stuff. I had Tal sampler for this simple stuff but now it's so perfectly integrated, that i don't need nothing else.

I know there's some bugs and i might not be in the same mood when i meet them, but just wanted to let you know there are these good moments too. I mean sometimes i look what other daws(new/old updated) bring to the table, but the 9 definitely keep me watching away of lot of other stuff. Huge part must be also cause i'm one screen man, it's so nice now.

Happy Camper
