You can get around the VSTi problem either by agreeing a list of common VSTis or by converting the sounds created by the expensive VSTi into wav samples and loading them up in a sampler channel. This can be quite a lot of effort and it increases the size of the flp or zipped loop file quite considerably. hope that clears that up for you, Andy -- The contents of this e-mail and any attachments are confidential and may be legally privileged.
