I find it a little sad that those are the only plugins you're aware of, assuming you're an experienced producer. But regardless, those plugins are only a drop in the sea.NYC Composer wrote:I'm not sure where you got this idea that 'most VSTis are mono-timbral'. Wow. A partial list of my stuff:
VE Pro, Kontakt, Omnisphere, Halion, about 10 EW Play instruments including EWQLSO, Battery, Stylus, Trilian, etc etc--getting the picture?
I think you might be mainly talking to hobbyists or specific genre producers, such as electronica or dance producers-and even there, things like Reason are multi-timbral. I think the only instruments I use that aren't multi-timbral are in Komplete 6 (Massive, Reaktor, B4, etc.)
And there are no "hobbyist" VST plugins. Freeware/shareware plugins, like commercial plugins, are used by everyone; from amateurs to producers of the highest caliber; and there are some amazing VST gems out there.
So please.. before trying to lecture me, get your facts straight.
Kontakt has multi-core support within the plugin itself, so it cycles cores regardless of cubase multi-core handling.I will say one thing-anecdotal evidence has suggested to me that multiple core distribution works more efficiently with one instance (say, of Kontakt) per sound, which forces cores to cycle-but that's another kettle of fish.
Yes , I am serious.
Got me-Reason(which I don't use) is a rewire-able,standalone (multitimbral) program.
You didn't address my point that many, many pro level VSTi's are multitimbral, in contrast to your blanket statement.
Kontakt's memory server , while helpful in some ways, is better subsumed by Ve Pro's better distribution and handling in my experience of both.
I did not presume to lecture you. I simply disagreed with you. You seem like an angry person. Have the last word, and we'll be done with it.
