    I know what you’re saying…as for me though, I only use bits o’ phrases and such as a launching pad for my own ideas. Kind of a musical “found art”. I’ve messed with all manners of these generative softwares, some more inspirational than others. But no, I don’t make whole songs with these, or even parts, just bits which I twist to my hearts content. And I’m 39, not so young! It’s fun to find a flash of an idea and go with it, take your brain in a different direction.
    Nodal’s nice, offering much more control than others. That said, it’s stable until I start Podium then it freezes.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up. I’m always a sucker for anything generative—

    I’ve had a good ol’ time with ASIO4All…can’t say I’ve tried other drivers besides the default in my HP. Sound quality isn’t an issue w/it AFAIK. Try it if you haven’t, nothing to lose if you can reinstall the M-Audio. You’ll like it like Mikey I’ll bet.

    Based on my experience, it should be less than a day or so. Welcome!

    Ipad, Mypad, maxipad. They’re all toys(maybe not that last one), and they’ll never compare to a desktop or laptop when it comes to sheer computing power, no matter how micro the tech gets. Touch screens drive me apeshit, as a person’s fat fingers cant compare to the accuracy of a mouse and keyboard. For 700 I could get a bad-ass desktop. What can I say, I couldn’t care less about portability. But thats me.
    Still, it would be nice to have Animoog on PC…Arturia’s break with Moog makes me think there will be Moog software in the future.
    As long as the pad people stayed over here, and the PC people stayed over here, fine, but the pads and tablets and such are affecting future PC tech. As long as a desktop/laptop is for sale, cool. Hope Win 8 works well with the “alternative” desktop look/control…the touchscreen side of it looks terrible, and after working all day I dont feel like moving my hands and fingers anymore than I have to. Doesn’t get much better than the mouse, I say. Minimal movement with maximum coverage.
    Enough old man ramblings, I’ll crawl back in my hole now!

    I must’ve been one of the luckier ones, as it only took about 10-15 clicks to download properly. Sooo much good free stuff out lately…
    I’ve been aware of the MiniMoog for years, but when I saw Neil Young jam with Devo in Human Highway I was sold! Just YouTube it, trust me.
    I say there’s never too many subtractive synths…one recent one I’ve had a helluva great time with recently, Mausynth: http://rinki.net/pekka/mausynth/
    Never mind its funky look, just mess with it.
    Good times for poor musicians, I tells ya!

    Good job sir! I’m an old hip hop head, good to hear people having fun with samples as opposed to playing one loop over and over. Never seen a Bollywood film but know it’s chock full of wild sounds. The food looked good. Go wild on the album, man, hip hop needs it!

    Okey dokey, here’s some:
    1.Midi routing
    2.Like Adimatis said, importing of wav of all types, hell throw in FLAC while you’re at it and I’ll call you Betty.
    3.Export loop to MIDI. This way I can make quick loops out of a big MIDI sequence and save them, boom bada bing.
    4.In-track automation, but still keep the parameters below the main track.
    and this last one’s not necessary but good for the new people:
    5.An easier start page without dumbing it down. I had tried Podium years back only to shelve it for a while because I couldn’t get past the first page.
    and the bonus(AKA “me being picky”):
    6.When adding effects to a track, have the track automatically expand and contract to show the addition and subtraction of said effects. And the option to get rid of that + sign for adding effects, as right click is fine. What can I say, I’m nutty for saving space! Thanks, and good day-

    EDIT: Somewhere between 1 and 2 should be a request for “clip memory”, that is, each clip saves its visual settings: piano roll position, zoom, etc.

    I ran the 32 bit through a few tracks, and everything was fine.
    A request: minor: an option to keep grid resolution settings consistent between the midi/audio editor popup window and the editor at the bottom(2). The tool settings are already the same between the two windows, which is always nice.
    Good that you got through unicode. I tried to read up on it but I have my limits.
    Glad for the update starter, good day!

    Man I hope not. Updates have slowed down to almost nothing, sure looks that way. I figured after Frits got his new badass computer that it would pick up. I’ll wager his day job keeps him pretty busy.
    Regardless of the future of Podium, I’m sticking with it for a while…it feels a lot more comfortable to use than many of the big dogs, and it runs pretty well. We’ll see.

    Thanks man — is the option for the rewire.dll related to the new control support?

    Hi- I don’t have any MCU related equipment, but a friend of mine has an iPhone…could I test it with this?: http://itouchmidi.com/?q=node/32
    If so, I’ll wait until he shows up again to test it, assuming my desktop has wireless control…
    Either way, thanks for the preview!

    Welcome, Telenator. I’ve seen various versions of Cubase come and go but yeah, it’s a little convoluted to say the least. Good prog but not for me! A lot of people miss out on Podium, I think, just because of the initial setup. Once you get that, then it’s fairly easy from there, to me anyways. Here’s a forum link for the pdf manual with added bookmarks and links, might make learning a little faster: http://www.zynewave.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2708
    I just looked up “Telenator”, knowing I’d heard it before somewhere…nice pickups! We used to mangle pickups and attach them to things, hit them, run the percussive sound through a Zoom multifx pedal and Tascam the results. You could get some strange sounds, oh yeah.
    Glad to have you here mate, good day!
