Re: How to connect two MIDI keyboards to Studio One

In Studio One you would need to configure two External Devices (there's a link to that in the Setup box on the start page). In the External Devices page, click the Add button and select New Keyboard. Give it a name and select the relevant MIDI input. Do that for both keyboards and you're good to go....

Re: Cubase13 Premature Jubilation

What are the softsynths that sound as sweet as kraftwerk then? What are the hardware synths that sound as sweet as Genesis then? Neither question makes any sense. If you like the sound of that music that's about the users - not the tools. I'm wondering if that's the same Kraftwerk who have used sof...

Re: Are you TONE DEAF or MUSICALLY GIFTED?

Re: Pulling my hair out trying to get ssl/harrison microglide to work as stereo

(Speaking from a point of view of never having used this plug-in, but having seen this type of mono/stereo confusion - especially in Cubase - many times...) Are you placing the plug-in as an insert on a mono track? If so (and if it's a similar situation to the one I've seen a hundred times in Cubas...

Re: Any synth that really sounds different

Doesn't look like they did very in-depth research, I can think of several software and hardware synths not mentioned that have variance in their voices from note to note. Still, if the end music is lacklustre and uninteresting, the problem is much more likely to be with the composer/producer than th...

Re: Guitar...don't look. The penny drops.

For me, I've been practising more scales recently so I get more familiar with the muscle memory and I don't have to look, mainly because the angle my neck is at when looking at the fretboard severely aggravates my arthritis; the choice has been made for me :D

Re: One Synth Challenge 2023

Interesting to dip in - there have been many wrong guesses but a small number of correct ones.

I think I shall name what synths have been used on Wednesday, but not tell you what pieces they relate too, and then as I said before, I'll do the full reveal on Friday.

Re: One Synth Challenge 2023

I shall reveal which tracks were contributed by who early Tuesday evening and then you can have until Friday to guess the synths. I shall attempt to reveal that around 6pm, although my internal alarm clock will probably get it wrong!

As long as I don't drop through any more ceilings, I shall be compiling the pieces on Sunday evening, and hopefully getting it published before 10pm, and then we can have a couple of days guessing the synths and the creators.
