Quick update on Win 10 @07/15/2015
BIG difference now that the preview build 10166 is out, last 2 update scared the little Jesus out of me.
Meaning that if you still have a previous old build: make sure you update it.
We also updated the Surface, I really like to run Cubase and Kontakt 5 on it for when I’m on the road again, having a 4K screen that support Windows 10 to a point that it mirror the DAW (excepted for the performance obviously) the precision of the pen and to be able to rest the hand on the screen as you work is really awesome. its also my second touch screen for the slider controller in F3 when I move around with microphone around the studio. (again its a question of what I got used to work with, ratter than “better” than my iPad, that is all) we needed to assess where and how to expend the studio, and running 2 OS did not do the thing for this specific configuration. intel will most probably continue to develop thunderbolt and we hope that hyper possibility of the Surface Pro 3+ will get it.
I have been ask about the zoom tool, and it seem cleaner enough to now use it. please anyone perceive the difference?
Also we can confirm the Komplete 10 Ultimate work fine,
The Sonokinetic Capriccio Alphorn and Ney are rock solid, no freeze yet.
but Kontakt did bug a bit, but I guess the problem is on my side,
Maschine 2.03 work fine, Cubase see the Maschine Mikro as controller but I did not look in to it to much as I found the learning curve to steep. but having komplete 10 Ultimate for 400$ because I get this controller is a good deal considering the total cost of individual VSTs. it is overwhelming on the library side. I mean insane!
Thank you Cubase to support Sonokinetic via Kontakt! Cubase ROCK!
That is it for now.
PS: good news as Steinberg will start deep testing Windows 10, I do not use all the potential of every VST, but to make it compatible for the day i’ll need it is very welcome here.
if it is true that a database is good as those who maintain it, Mea Culpa that I got used to work with Cubase since it was on Atari in the 90’s and I admit getting worried that Cubase would not follow. It feel good when your wish is granted
For the curious ones, We bought a farmland to install our studio south of Ottawa, the record room have the same amp that Eddie Van Halen had in the 70’s in his rig AKA H|H V800 Mosfet, in a Vox Cabinet 4x 12", and we use Neumann Mics to record in the the UR824. We output at low volume in near field NS-10m from Yamaha with a McIntosh 250 amp. that way regardless if we like or dislike the sound type, are are ALL on the same page for what we can hear… or not! can’t get a complain from the sound engineer anymore that alone worth the investment, hehehe. Our favorite guitar is a Steinberger 6 string from the 80’s, vinyl sample are recorded from a B&O turn table in a BeoSound 9000 as preamp directly in the UR824. Our current location is to small for the grand Steinway 1938, (currently in Montréal) but it should be a nice addition when we will record opera voice with a familiar piano sound. personally I just cant wait to place a couple of EMG and humbukers under the table and crank the distortion to the roof Hey, is all about having fun right?
