Re: I think that my query has something to do with midi

It's easily achievable with apps such as BS16i, Soundfont Pro, or SampleTank. Music Studio also includes some orchestral instruments. For example here is a sample I created with BS16i using a soundfont that is readily and freely available on the internet (Sonatina orchestra): https://soundcloud.com/...

Re: Has Santa Been?

Now I don't need to find a budget for some headphones, I think EZ drummer is the way. Since you're a drummer, I personally don't think this is the best way to go - what you should consider is finding a way to record a performance and then use Drumagog to replace the sounds, while still keeping the ...

Re: Has Santa Been?

I will try to understand the channel strip as you suggest, Mark. I tried using the expander bit but realised I didn't even know what it was, so should probably work that out before messing again! ;) If you read that book you should have no problem understanding the expander, or the rest of the chan...

One of the same ones that mrufino recommends: "mixing secrets for the small project studio" by mike senior.

It's a great read, and will allow you to make the most of those expensive monitors you recently acquired :)

Re: Has Santa Been?

I've had those 3 for a while, and they're all really good. I took advantage of the IAP sale to buy, erm, all of the others... So I have a lot of learning and playing ahead of me in the new year. I've read a couple of books on mixing and mastering, as well as watched a lot of videos, so the knowledge...

Are you sure about this? Mixdown should be lossless AFAIK.

Re: M7 CoProcessor / 64bit as a solution for still not much

According to informal tests run on the Audiobus forum, the Air has roughly 100meg less available RAM when you launch Auria after a fresh reboot than the iPad 4 (but still a lot more than iPad 2). Considering the increase in CPU performance it's not that big a deal. The reduced RAM footprint is proba...

Re: Pro Q Crashes/Freezes Often

This happens to me as well, especially if I enable the analyser. It happens almost every time I use Pro Q.

Ipad 4 64GB with plenty of free space.

Re: Drumagog and Hihat articulation

Shame iGog has been abandoned, I use Impaktor to record drum performances and then replace the samples with Drumagog. If iGog was Audiobus compatible I could do the whole thing in one step.

Re: Drumagog and Hihat articulation

Automating is pretty easy: to record automation simply look for the grey buttons with the letters R and W at the top of the plugin window. When you press the W button you can record automation while the track is playing, just move the fader as the track plays. Then disable the W buttons but keep the...

Re: Why make it easy?

Well cost is a pretty big reason :) I came to soft synths and DAWs pretty recently via the iPad, and wouldn't really be able to justify the investment to do the same on the desktop. But on iOS it's very affordable and a lot of fun. Also, the touch interface does lend itself pretty well to music, I c...

Sure, you can do it in the edit view, see p74 of the manual:

Re: Drumagog file size

the original drumagog download is 300 meg, the additional content is 1.5 GB as martygras says - but you can choose which files you add in the bonus content.

Re: Drumagog 5 in-app

the default installation does not, but if you email support@auriaapp.com with a copy of the itunes receipt for your in-app purchase of Drumagog they will send you a link to some extra gog files that do contain cymbals and hi-hats (44 gog files of cymbals and hi-hats in total, and many additional dru...
