  1. Hey @stardustmedia !! 😃 Long time no see, good to see you again. I was wondering what you had been up to.
  2. I agree with what has been said, you can't make up your mind based on only one user's feedback. Having said that I consider that it's always a great idea to keep the old Mac while you get used to the new one, and if you have to, you can complete the old project on the old Mac while you start new projects on the new one. Great approach.
  3. Is it possible that your Time Quantize was set to Off? Or maybe the notes were already quantized? It's hard to tell without a specific example. If you have this happening again, post some screenshots or attach a simplified version of the project here so that we can have a look. Here again, hard to answer this without being able to see the project. For example, it's possible that the Piano Roll is showing you the wrong pitch range, or the wrong time range. So here again don't hesitate to attach a project so that one of us can have a look.
  4. Yes, you can definitely add a few more drum kit pieces to the Drum Remapper script and custom name them. If you need help with that, start a new topic in the MIDI FX Plug-In Scripts forum and we'll help you out.
  5. Yes, it's possible to train. You have to train your ear. Can you sing the first four pitches in "happy birthday to you"? Then you can sing the first four notes of a major scale. It doesn't really matter whether you sing it in E major or C major. What matters the most is relative pitches: how one pitch sounds against the previous one. I remember learning intervals by memorizing the first notes of famous tunes. You can find your own tunes, but for example: 2nd (Happy Birthday To You) 3rd (When the Saints Go Marching In) 4th (O' Christmas Tree) 5th (Star Wars theme) etc.... At first when you hear an interval you may have to sing one of these songs to check but after a while it becomes second nature and you hear it. It helps a lot of if you play an instrument like guitar or piano because then you can also visualize what the interval looks like and make it match with what it sounds like, reinforcing that memory.
  6. You'd have to create the track first, then look in the Library (left pane in the main window). But in any case, instead, try what I suggested in my previous post.
  7. Do this: Create a new software instrument track. Insert Drum Machine Designer in the Instrument slot. Click a pad in DMD: that pad's channel strip is displayed on the right in the Inspector. Open the Library. At the top of the right channel strip in the Inspector, click to the left of the Settings button to point the blue triangle from the Library toward that button. Choose a Patch from the Library.
  8. Consider that music is a language. Can you think of a word and say it live in front of an audience? What about a full sentence? A full story? What about improv theater where you react live to some unexpected situation? It's the same with music. You learn your notes, your scales, your chords, your chord progressions, then you use them as a language to express emotions. It's all things you can train yourself to do. Perfect/absolute pitch is another discussion, it's about the ability some people have to hear a pitch and tell you the name of the note. I don't believe you can train that, you either have it or you don't. The people who do have it can listen to a recording and tell you that the recording is not exactly at 440 Hz but slightly sharp for example. They have somehow memorize an absolute reference. I don't believe that perfect pitch is necessary or even helpful in order to be a musician, unless perhaps you forgot your tuner and you're trying to tune your guitar to 440 Hz.
  9. Yes. In fact Drum Machine Designer is just an interface/routing device, it will route incoming MIDI notes to different channel strips where you can use whatever instrument you want. Drum Kit Designer is a nice fancy GUI for Sampler, you can use either DKD or Sampler to trigger the same samples. It's all very flexible but you'll need to spend a bit of time to set it up the way you want.
  10. Yes, I agree that Drum Machine Designer may be a good solution here. @Logicman2 , what I would personally suggest is that you try the different solutions provided here (Drum Machine Designer, or the Summing Stack method) and see which suits you better. Let us know if you hit a snag in the process.
  11. I have always taken great precautions to keep my projects self contained. Always organized as folders, with all audio files inside the audio files folder inside the project folder. The very first thing when I start a new project is to save my project organized that way in the right location, then I keep checking in the project folder to make sure everything looks right, and as I record or import audio files in the project (which I never do before saving the project), I keep track of all the files locations by opening a Project File Browser and making it wide so that I can see the entire path to all the audio files. They should always be inside the project as expected. By doing this I am free to name my files as I want, which is typically rather simple names (Vocals, Guitar, Kick, Snare, etc.).
  12. Did you also reinstall Turbo Boost Switcher Pro?
