I’m disabled, currently using 32-bit disability-friendly music software because I actually UNDERSTAND it and can’t find a teacher to show me the new stuff. Anyway, here’s the question.
Because it’s 32-bit, if you’re having to use - say - 6 different instances of the same VST - WHY aren’t they all multitimbral!?!, semi-rhetorical question! - to layer 6 of its sounds together, you run out of accessible memory pretty quickly.
I’m not a programmer really so I don’t even know if I’m in the right forum but ‘VST Connect’ SOUNDED right! My question IS - is there a VST that lets you SIMULATE multitimbrality? So I could load up this mythical VST, then load a non-multitimbral VST inside of it, so the mythical VSTs 16 channels could let me access up to 16 sounds in the non-multitimbral VST at once? That would mean I’d be down to only using 2 VSTs simultaneously - the non-multitimbral one and the mythical multitimbrality-simulator - instead of trying to load 6 instances of a non-multitimbral VST and crashing the software by running it out of memory!
I know the obvious answer is ‘learn 64 bit DAWs’ and I will as soon as I can find someone to teach me them but, in the meantime, does such a thing exist? 2 goals, if anyone knows a workaround. Goal 1 is to be able to access more than one sound in ONE INSTANCE of the sound-producing VST, even if it’s monotimbral. Goal 2 would be to be able to shove DIFFERENT monotimbral VSTs into one instance of the mythical multitimbrality-simulator, so I could take sounds from each of them and blend them together within the simulator. Then I could play one note in the DAW and it would play all the layered sounds simultaneously, not have to have a separate stave for each sound and be constantly remixing-them-on-the-go
Hope I’ve made the question understandable, taking into account I utterly don’t know what I’m talking about!!
