  1. I got that disc about a month ago when I ordered from them. Haven't had any problems with it yet. I especially dig the QLegato violas.
  2. Seems like they always have stuff at a discount. Is there any particular time of year when they are known to have really good sales? Any chance they'll have a bigger sale before the end of the year than the 30% off they are having right now?
  3. What's up with the "last tweaked parameter" option? It seems to work fine on Fruity plugins but it isn't selectable on any other plugins.
  4. Does Akai work with PCs? I don't know much about the different file formats and I don't want to get something and expect it to play out of the box only to relize I have to convert it to something else.
  5. Hey, I was messing around with the FL6 demo and I want to know how that guitar thing is done in the Tesseract song. It kicks in whenever the "damp" and "damp time" channels have something in the piano roll and makes it sound different than the other parts of it. I have been wanting to make a guitar effect like that forever and I haven't been able to find a way yet.
  6. As obvious as that seems, I didn't want to assume that that's what it is for. I always thought that compression required some kind of really fancy thing with all kinds of knobs to tweak. I'm pretty confused right now.
  7. Does FL have some kind of plugin or something that can do the whole compression thing that seems to be such a big mystery to some people (including me) around here?
  8. Well, it certainly sounds better than anything else I've ever done, but it still doesn't have any "oomph" or any sort of power behind it as far as production goes. It's like it's being played on some crappy old radio or something. And all I have as far as production/mastering/whatever goes is FL, so there won't be any post-production happening anywhere else for me. So can this be fixed simply by a little EQing? I'm wondering if ther are some other tricks to FL for things like this that I just don't know about yet, because all I really know how to do is lay out some melodies and beats and put some basic FX on them.
  9. Scratch that last post. What I originally meant to ask was: is FL capable of producing high quality songs using only the Fruity effects? I mainly use the parametric EQ, reverb, and stereo enhancer. Is there something I'm missing to make it sound better?
  10. Well, I figured it COULD be an FL issue, since everything I do is within the program, so I thought I'd post this here. I have to ask though, what does arrangement have to do with making it sound not as hollow? I realize that to some degree arrangement does affect the "fullness" of a song, but I think the biggest problem here has something to do with production probably the free soundfonts I used. I've heard people do better things than that with free sounds though, so I don't want to try to use that as an excuse.
  11. I seem to be having trouble giving my songs a "full" sound, or whatever you want to call it. They always sound really....empty. Since I could never explain exactly what I mean, I'll just post something of mine so you can hear for yourself. http://s28.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=0LHGZRSLZYFHE1P4V5X41RG030 Here's to hoping someone responds before the link dies...
  12. Is there a way to make samples stay at one tempo and not sound all screwy when you change notes with the built in sampler?
  13. Aright, I've got a few questions for the FL people. Firstly, I have trouble with slides. I can't ever seem to use them, especially when it comes to a VSTi (which is like all I use). And another thing probably related to that, you know that little window that pops up when you double click on a note bar in the piano roll? None of the options in that window work for anything outside of drum samples much like the above issue. Another thing I'd like to know is how you deal with a huge CPU load. I usually have around 6-10 VSTis and a ton of drums and FX and whatever else I can fit into a song. Everything starts chugging when I get about 3/4 of all of that together. I have a P4 3.2ghz processor and 512MB of RAM. And one more thing. Is it possible to get the Slayer 2 to sound clear instead of muddy like it does whenever I use it? I swear, I CANNOT get a crisp sound out of it at all. Also, the Slayer 2 falls victim to the problems in the above paragraphs, if anyone knows how to fix it specifically.
  14. I've listened to a few podcasts before, but I never knew they were called "podcasts." I just thought of them as cool radio shows you could listen to whenever you wanted. I will never look at them the same way again...heh. Good show overall. It's nice to see more people trying to promote VG music and remixes in some way. Nice little thing at the end where you spoke of your first time meeting. I found that really entertaining for some reason. I'd like to say that I agree that Rayza should sound a little more into the show while he's talking. It would definitely make it more interesting to listen to. Aurora's voice adds a nice balance to the whole thing and makes it sound more....complete...I guess. All the other podcasts I've listened to have had only males doing the talking, so it's cool to hear a female voice (and a good one at that) doing some of the talking.
  15. Sweet. That's pretty much what I was looking for. Thanks.
