[QUOTE=mrfracas;7825
You're right though; friendly banter this place is. I think I may have been the most offensive though... still haven't heard from Shane yet. [/QUOTE]

Of course we love the friendly banter around here.

And no, Matt I didn't run off into a corner to cry. We are an hour a head here GMT+1 so it was time to switch off and enjoy some sofa time with the missus.

But I do hope you sweated over it a bit!!!!

Have you had a look yet at the trial?


Here are two videos from CM where they rate the Cakewalk synths Rapture at number 7 and Z3ta+ at number 3 in their top 10 virtual synths:

Did you also do something at least useful and explore Sonar more?

Well, based on those videos, I've added yet more items to my Christmas wish list. Though, I've got to say, they didn't exactly make the NI plugins sound like the dream machines they are; I think that could have been the combination of generic sounding patches, and really uninteresting playing.

I like z3ta+; I've used it before - there's a great sub patch called 'Watch the Sub!' which has a smooth bass drop. Huh! It's only 50 at DV: Cakewalk Z3Ta at DV247.COM.

Rapture's got some really tidy definition; that's 98 at DV: Cakewalk Rapture at DV247.COM.

Hmm! Wish I had more dosh!

I agree there. I would rate the NI stuff higher.

I don't know but I presumed everything Cakewalk was PC only. Maybe I'm wrong. That's why I thought I'd have to keep a PC set up running alongside future Mac if I wanted to use Cakewalk gear.

Rapture can run on Mac.

Sureno, why don't you find out if you can convert the VSTs using the FXpansion VST to AU Adaptor?
