[ddots-l] Re: Access to native instruments like the b4

Truthfully I liked the older one better. The new one is just a bit over the top or something, the overdrive just doesn't sound authentic to me, they tried too hard or something. It does have eq and reverb and stuff, but I think the older one sounded more like a B3.

That's also how I use many of the older semi-accessible ni stuff such as the
first 3 absynths and fm7, choose a preset, then with assigned controllers
either through midi learn or through assignable controlls I controll the
finer aspects in greater detail.
Hey Gord, how does that new b3 compare to the older 1? There's a demo of it on my fm7 cd, but it's the older one I guess, since it was from a few years ago, 2004 or 5 was when I got the fm7 cd... Or is that the "new" one you are
speaking of?

HTH, D!J!X!

Well, this is what I usually do.  I select a preset from the b4 properties
window that is close to what I want. I have assigned the parameters that I
need to change, such as all the upper manual drawbars and other stuff like
key click, overdrive, leslie speeds, etc. in the synth rack.  The original
b4 had a template for the evolution uc33 controller but the new b4 II does
not.  However, nearly every parameter does have midi controller numbers
assigned to it so that if you have a midi controller like one of the edirol pcr series or even the motif xs, you should be able to control the drawbars
and such.

Gord, you use that B4, right?  Please describe how you use it, what is
accessible and what is not.

Regards,
Bill

John:
The support for 3rd party plug-ins and synths is still the same.  It
would be virtually impossible to script for the hundreds of plugs out
there, and each one has its own interface and issues to deal with.
Some folks are working with Hot Spot Clicker and developing sets for
specific synths and effects.  Keep in mind though that you can access
most parameters in the track inspector or synth rack.
