Silent Member posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionHey all, I'm considering upgrading to Windows 11 on my dusty (but quite recent) music-making laptop, anyone in here who have taken the plunge? Run into any compability issues or latency nonsense? Please advise.

WATMM preset exchange
hma posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionHey guys, I downloaded Tobyb ear`s minihost today and it has this wonderful preset manager so I decided to gather some preset files (.fxp) that I have randomly laying around and put them into banks (.fxb). So here are two small ones, both are for two of my favorite little freeware thingies: 1. TB303 emulation TB4005 TB4005.zip 2. MDSP`s delay called Fire MDSP-Fire.zip They are not anything special, just some presets that I have exported while working between different hosts, still, maybe someone will find them useful. So, let`s do it? Preferably fxp/fxb files.
Same VST. Same settings. Different sound?
Guest posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionSo about an hour ago I was pretty bored so I decided to fiddle around with a synth VST. I started out with a pretty basic sound, and then proceeded into some pretty weird and crazy sounds. After a while of knob twiddling I thought it would be cool to try and reverse everything I did and get back to the original basic sound I had. After a few minutes I realized that I couldn't get anywhere near the original sound I had. To try and locate the problem, I made a new track using the same exact VST. I then adjusted all of the settings on the VST (the new one) so that they exactly matched the old one. After playing both of them, they sounded much different. The new track had a basic sound, and the old track had an odd sound with the basic sound in the background. Kinda weird. Does anyone know why this is? Exact same VST and settings, but a different sound. Here's a recording of the newer track and then the older track. https://soundcloud.com/reid458/samesettings On the original track, I even turned off all the oscillators, and it still is making sound.
2x glitch .xrns's (for those with Renoise installed)
Guest posted a topic in Your Latest CreationsMade these track years ago for school and found the .xrns's recently and thought I'd share :). Samples originate from the analogue studio at the royal conservatory in the Hague and were processed using a batch of vst's and sequenced in Renoise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMYx2HOkZBo Dl .xrns of Maxto Hitachi here: http://www.mediafire.com/?tfy3kix9e7nff93 + http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yxlzT6xXm4 Dl .xrns of Sinus here: http://www.mediafire.com/?yzfr28k0xviyqg7 Feel free to remix, use the samples any way you like except for re-distributing them / selling them. Cheers.
88.2khz versus 96khz? (24-bit)
joshuatxuk posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionSo I'm trying to make my workflow as consistent as possible and in order to minimize problems and distract myself with uncertainty and spending time converting audio, my goal is to set personal standards for two things: 1. Sample rate in my DAW for the music I'm making. 2. Sample rate for recorded music I'm digitizing from cassettes and vinyl. 3. Any advice on what to use for converting higher sample rates to lower rates. I have Ableton 8.2 linked to a Tascam US-122L interface using ASIO. For ripping I'm thinking of using Audacity, though I question if it's the best choice, and if so I might stick with Ableton or acquire Reaper for that task. I have a friends copy of Sony Acid but from a superficial first try I don't really like it. So the Tascam interface can go up to 24-bit, 96khz which and I'm perfectly content at that being the max (no 192khz for me). So my questions are: 1. Is 96khz better than 88.2khz? I'm sold on 24-bit but I can't tell if there's a benefit of 88.2 in conversion going to 44.1 versus 96 to 44.1 (for CD's). Is it better to use 48 and 96 because it's also used for video sound and digital hardware sample rates? So basically, is there a difference between 24/88.2 and 24/96? 2. I see a lot of vinyl rips done at 24bit/96khz. I know with few exceptions cassettes are inherently lower quality (metal type IV is probably better than cheaply-mastered vinyl). Is 24bit/96khz overkill for cassettes and vinyl? I'm pretty sure 16/44.1 is just fine for archiving my rare and unique cassettes but not so sure about using 16/44.1 for vinyl. After all, digitizing is still, well digitizing…right? Will 24/96 even make a difference in playback of pre-recorded music? 3. Is Ableton adequate/ideal for dithering and converting? I'm committed to recording and mixing with it because of familiarity and my workflow thus far. But should I export the raw mix and use something else for better conversions to lower rates? Also, this might be the dumbest question, but once I set Ableton to my Tascam for audio input/output and set ableton to 24bit/96khz does everything I record with my Tascam UL-122L have to be in 24/96 no matter what? Or could I set the Tascam (using it's driver preference screen) to 44/16 for my recordings of analog sources but keep my Ableton project set to 96khz? To be honest, this is where I'm most unsure. I don't want to keep changing my interface to different rates when I record different things if it can affect the sound quality within the same Ableton project. Fuck, this is long and way too OCD sounding. Sorry guys. Feel free to turn this into sample rate advice thread too, after all this one is a bit old: http://forum.watmm.com/topic/8241-sample-rate-bit-depth/
wtf happened to DSK?
wahrk posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionTheir website is all jacked up and not working and I haven't found anything they've done in the past two years. Did they go out of business? I never really used anything of theirs save Overture, which doesn't even seem to be on KVR now. It was just causing some artifacts so I wanted to see if there was a new version or if the issue was common.
loops, arps and seqs
randomAmateur posted a topic in EKT General DiscussionThat's what I'm looking for. I'm using FL10, I'm not researching into tech at all just getting advice and use those. I got a sick Korg pack that one is gold!!! (Legacy Cell/Wavestation), my best sounds would be on the moog modular but the sequences on my MoogModular-vst won't stop so it is unuseable for me. I'm using Sytrus and checking out the new stuff on fl10 any advice for a lazyguy? thx in advance!
