    Because I can...:p

    I actually liked Love Missile F1-11. Thought it was a great song at the time and it still sounds good even now.

    Yep, I'll try it again later to see if it improves.

    I was trying to play a bass line à la Tony James in Sigue Sigue Sputnik, but it really didn't work at all. I played around with various parameters for a while, but it's just not capable of capturing all of the notes, probably because there is not enough decay between each note.

    Might try it again sometime in the future, but right now it's not really looking like it's going to be very high on my wish list.
    Glad you gave it a shot though! We'll see how far they take it. I, like you, still haven't found it extremely "usable" yet...but it still is pretty novel and cool IMO! You're right it needs work...




    But they're working on it. :D

    At that price I'll consider it. Still haven't tried it, but we'll see tomorrow. Not even sure if I'd find a use for it, as I don't know I can really think of how I could benefit from using a guitar to play MIDI parts over a keyboard.

    I heard some rumbling around $99 awhile ago...but that is all speculation. That price, IMO is such a steal considering how expensive an actual "midi guitar" really is. This one plugin will allow non-keyboard playing guitar-capable electronic musicians across the world play any softsynth...bass parts, piano, keyboard...you can even play a mapped out drum kit with your axe. It's wild!

    Now...will I be buying it to make ambient on it? Not quite sure yet. I've had it for months but haven't actually "used it" in a track. I think once my album is shipping and I'm working on new material I'll seriously consider it though!

    Believe me Duckett, that's how I felt for a good 2 months while I was emailing support back and forth because I couldn't even get the plugin to work!!! Seriously...it wouldn't even load on my host and when it did none of the knobs would move. After at least 7 different versions I gave up until the main developer emails me a week ago and goes "we were finally able to replicate your issue" and tells me to download the latest version. Guess what? It worked!!!

    So I know how you feel, really I do!!! It's an amazing concept what they're trying to achieve and if they pull it off successfully, it'll definitely change the way music is made for a long time to come.

    Might have to wait until the new year as I've had barely any time right now and will be in Florida for the last week of the year.

    Definitely on my list of things to do.
