Hi all

I use Cubase SX 1.0.6 as my main DAW program (connected via fx-teleport to some more PC’s). Then I export/import midi to a lot of NTONYX programs like eg Style enhancer, Arranger, Style Morpher etc. And sometimes I export chord and melody to BIAB 2004 and generate a quick arrangement or harmonise melody lines. I also use Cakewalk MC (got it with Edirol HQ orchestra). It is mostly used for some midi plugs that I cant run in the Cubase program (like musiclabs rhytm chords). I downloaded Pro Tools Free for the winMe platform yesterday, mostly to learn the Pro Tools interface. But I will try to do some mastering in it. :)

Cubase provides both rewire and VSTi support for Vocaloid. I run vocaloid in the main DAW, but it think it can be handled via Fx-teleport when the VSTi is working. The YV enhancer NTONYX software would fit in well in my vocaloid working process.

I usually have several music programs started during a session.

Joe – if you’re in the market for linking two or more machines together, then I can recommend trying Steinberg’s System Link. It’s just been updated as of last week and I believe it now has less delay than FX Teleport (at least on a two machine basis). As I understand it, FX Teleport has an inherent delay from the LAN whereas System Link accumulates delay from the chain of soundcard latencies. This is only noticeable on “live” input, as the “recorded” stuff is time compensated within SX. With a pair of fast ASIO 2 cards in both machines, the small delays are actually quite manageable. I use one machine to generate a virtual rack of VSTi’s via the V-Stack software and the other machine serves as the main recording device. I only have to do this with very “big” songs, though. It can free up CPU cycles on the “recorder” for posh effects and what have you.

I think it work excellent. In the teleported PC you just install VSTi or VST and you dont have to run any extra program except the FX-teleport wrapper. I have not had any major latency problems in my system. It is just as if the VSTi are running in the main DAW. If you run SIR in the FX-teleport PC then it is not possible to use it in real time (only playback) for effects, but I have tried the Voxengo pristine reverb demo as a send effect and there was no problems. I have X-phrase, VG, VGEE, Groove Agent, Stylus and some free plugs running there. It uses the standard LAN to feed the data, simple and efficient and no dont need any sound card. The program is also rather cheap to buy. :)

WOW! just noticed that I am Cool user now. 8O

My first host software was Reason 2.5 and still use it as it’s all-in-one solution is dead handy sometimes. Since then though, I’ve invested in Cubase Sx2 and have a few VST’s such as Garritan Personal Orchestra, etc…also got Sibelius 3 recently and finding it great for scoring pieces with GPO and then tweaking the midi later on in Cubase

Cheers

Hi Dave

I have been using Reason 2.5 on the last 10 of my songs rewired to Cubase. I really enjoy that feature. Reason provides excellent sounds.

Yep Bob, Reason is somewhat under-estimated by many in what it offers. It’s a great starting platform for hobbyists like me and is actually quite powerful once you get into it. Like any ‘tool’ of the trade it comes down to how you apply yourself to it as to what you get out of it.

Having said that though, I’m sort of shying away from it a bit atm as the great sounds from GPO really make me feel I have a real orchestra at my command….the Orkester sound bank and even the Strings refill just don’t compare in that department.

Cheers
Dave
