Today a collab track I did with Håkan Ludvigson is released via the Mareld label, along with a great retexture version by Mechanist. Another remix will be released next month on another label since it was too up-tempo for the Mareld standards.
The track was originally a rough one-take I did with my Ableton Push that I was very close to deleting altogether. However; Håkan saved the idea and, after I sent him the stems, he loaded them into a Steinberg Cubase session and added his magic. The result is glitchy electronic piece in a church-like setting and the Mechanist version adds a fantastic, experimental remix with a dark, cinematic atmosphere.
A few days ago I started out testing Steinberg’s brand new version of their remote recording solution: VST Connect Pro 3.
Since an SE version was delivered along with the installation of Cubase Pro 8 one might be a bit curious about what the actual differences are so, here’s a list of all the stuff that the Pro version supports but not the SE:
1: Multi-channel support, up to 16 tracks (SE is 1 stereo only)
2: LAN support
3: Downstream transfer of uncompressed audio files
4: HD Audio resolution
5: Studio Pass support
The other night I had a basic try out with my fellow electronic musician Lars Netzel. We didn’t do any creative work but we got the basics going.
However; we both are having some issues with scanning our VST instruments in our systems. I am currently on a MacBook Pro and he’s on a PC desktop so it is not a platform issue. In my case the scanning crashes the Performer app and in his case the app doesn’t seem to scan the right location in the first place. In my case I highly suspect that that one or a few (i.e. too many) specific plugin(s) are causing the failure. We will run some more tests to sort this out within the upcoming week. We also had problems getting monitor effects running but that might be the result of me not having read the manual properly. Stay tuned!
