" When I built my computer I had 16gb of memory in it. The MOBO I bought has provision for 128gb of memory.  I've never had the need to add any more. I suppose I'm just a small composer in terms of building mixes. I started out as…"

"Good post, Tim. There are always many ways to use music software. We each must find what works for how we ourselves work (i.e. workflow), what kind of system we have, and whether we like to keeps things simple or gravitate more toward complexity. I…"

"Good luck in finding a solution for this Colin. VE Pro looks like an interesting program. I guess we all have differing approaches and ways of working that work best for us. My personal approach is to almost never have any kind of vst shell with too…"

"Dane, it's pretty straightforward to migrate your EP projects to Vepro. Although at the moment I forget how you do it, but the manual is fairly clear on this (with the caveat that manuals in general seem to purposefully obfuscate what they are…"

Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 & Kontakt Player

Hi AllAnyone using VEP 7 & Kontakt? I've just upgraded from Vienna Ensemble to VEP 7 but I can't figure out how to use the KP properly with it. Specifically, In Dorico I have five tracks, each connected to the same VEP instance. In the vep server instance I have the Kontakt player loaded as a plugin with five separate instruments on channels 1-5. Problem is I can only get playback from channel 1, nothing from the other channels.Compare this with using Padshop 2 as a vep plugin. I can have…See More
