Help with Sound Diver
      #17688 - 21/09/04 11:17 AM

I have at last brought a Virus Rack to supplement my soft synths. I use Live 4 as my sequncer and run a P4 2.8 PC on windows 2000.

I am using sound diver to edit, but I am finding the movement of the controls very jerky and difficult. Is there a setting that I should be using to smooth out these movements.

I've just checked my copy of SoundDiver (took a while to track down the CD to re-authorise it as I don't use it very often these days), and I found it to be quite smooth in editing. I'm using v3.0, by the way.
I did notice that the cursor doesn't 'stick' to the control which is being edited, which might take a bit of getting used to. I could imagine it being a bit of a pain if your mouse isn't up to scratch, but I presume that if you've been using soft-synths happily, then that probably isn't an issue. Couldn't see anything in the preferences which might help (other than flicker-free redraw, perhaps ?).
Sorry it's not that helpful, but I thought it was better than no replies at all to your first post !

One other thing occurred to me - SoundDiver transmits all your edits as MIDI data in real time, so I wonder whether that might be a source of the 'jerkiness', seems unlikely but you never know ...

If the SD editor you are using transmits SysEx rather than CC it's pretty intensive. You may need to up the midi buffer sizes in your software.
