back to big stuff with big sounds in a pompous composition.

Just got a new PowerBook i7 16Gb SSD and wanted to see what I could get with it. Despite some crackling sounds I hear during recording process (did not find yet how to fix that) I had a lot of pleasure doing this one. Hope you'll have too smiley

Thanks a lot for your comments.

Great sounds, Thierry smiley

Congrats for your new hardware.

Si je peux t'aider pour les craquements ... donne moi les symptômes et les noms des plugins concernés. J'ai rencontré parfois ce genre de problème dans Logic que j'ai réussi à éliminer en travaillant sur les réglages des plugins eux-mêmes.

@LaFayette Thanks a lot my friend ! smiley

Merci pour ton aide. Quand je me mets en mode boucle sur 4 mesures par exemple, les premiers passages sont fluides puis à partir du 4ème ou 5ème je note des pe**** accoups au niveau de la lecture accompagnés de pe**** craquements sonores. J'ai réglé l'audio sur le max : 1024 échantillons, taille de buffer grande et traitement des processus sur "Auto" (je peux choisir 4 mais cela ne change rien). Ça me l'a fait sur certaines parties de March Of The Empire et je soupçonne Kontact d'en être à l'origine. Cela te parle ? Merci à toi.

@thsantac : Salut Thierry. Sur quels types de pistes se produisent les craquements : Midi (clavier midi, instruments virtuels) ou Audio (instruments réels ou pistes Midi converties en Audio) ?

En principe, avec Kontakt tu utilises le Midi.

Dans ce cas le buffer des Préférences de Logic est inopérant car il est destiné à créer une mémoire tampon pour un instrument analogique (guitare ou clavier réel) avec en plus la possibilité de passer en mode « faible latence » si tu as des retards entre exécution de la note sur l’instrument et restitution par les HP. Il n'y a pas de réglage de buffer pour le Midi dans Logic.

Pour ma part (iMac i7 2016, 4Ghz, 32 Go Ram, SSD 1To) le buffer Audio est réglé sur 256 et c’est suffisant. Je pense que vu ta configuration c’est également le cas.

- question bête : tes samples Native sont-ils sur le SSD ou un disque externe ?
- as tu essayé avec un nouveau projet vierge ?
- réinitialisé les pilotes Midi
- mis les réglages par défaut ? (usine)
- j’ai la Komplete de Native Instruments qui contient aussi Kontakt 5.
Lorsque tu as installé Kontakt sur ton mac, as tu bien lancé la version stand alone en premier, avant de l’utiliser comme plugin de Logic ? C’est important car c’est là que se font aussi les réglages du plugin.
Je te suggère de fermer Logic et de lancer directement Kontakt de ton dossier Applications.
Ensuite, jette un œil dans les Préférences > Memory de Kontakt : les cases « Use Memory Server » et « Override Instrument’s Preload » doivent être normalement décochées, mais c’est sur la deuxième (OIP) que tu peux régler la taille du buffer spécifique à Kontakt. Fais éventuellement un essai et dis moi. A+ smiley

@LaFayette Et ben, je vois que tu as creusé le sujet smiley Belle config mon ami ! Mais il est vrai que je ne suis pas loin : i7 3.1Ghz, 16Go RAM, SSD 500Go. Je viens de lancer Kontact en stand-alone et j'ai vu ces réglages. J'ai mis l'OIP au max mais j'ai aussi mis à 256 le nombre de samples dans l'onglet Audio. Je ferai des essais ce soir en remettant le buffer audio de Logic sur 256 échantillons. Pour te répondre :
- les samples sur sont un SSD externe branché en USB3,
- non, je n'ai pas essayé avec un projet vierge, j'essaierai,
- suis allé voir dans l'utilitaire Configuration Audio et Midi mais je n'ai pas trouvé comment réinitialiser les pilotes,
- non, je n'ai pas mis les réglages d'Usine.
Bon, ça fait pas mal de choses à essayer, je te tiendrai au courant.
Encore merci !

yes, EPic, and the hissing is can be distracting, but it can also at points be incorporated into the atmosphere of the piece and actually augment it. seems to disappear entirely at times as well...

big...i LOVE the word POMPOUS...

As always, fantastic sound and arrangement. Things sound fantastic from start till end.
Super dramatic music which most people would think is the soundtrack to an expensive Hollywood production.
Really well composed. I love the chorus work and the mix of synth and full orchestra.

In short. This goes straight to my NAS. It is an other keeper from you. Bravo

It is the first day I listen to iComp for two months so sorry for the late review.

am not sure how I missed this glorious piece! Some of my links were broken when the icomps site was down, i guess. Anyway,
What an incredible project to completion, grand style composition! I would never expect anything less from you. The vocal are magical and carry the entire introduction across vast plains.

Moving forward to the bridge,,, I am feeling a since of relief and wonder,
Concluding in grand style! BRAVO
