I did some Orchestral stuff in the past using Cubase, which use alot of midi parameter automation to make it sound alive. Despite the fact that there are alot of midi controllers missing in Podium which cannot be automated (which should come soon), I find it quite time consuming to work with alot of midi automation data in Podium.
most of these can be added as parameters – there is full support for CC, RPN, NRPN, etc… which controllers are you missing?
If you have the ability to select the level of quality, latency should be less an issue. As an example, if you are doing a quick sketch and don’t need the quality, turn the quality down and go for the reduced latency. I could see this as being useful when laying down the initial tracks. When mixing latency is less an issue and you can turn the quality back up.
What I have done in zPitch now, is check whether the plugin is running in offline processing mode (bounce render), and if so use the best quality possible. The latency is not an issue when rendering. That way the plugin can still be used realtime with a relatively low latency.
Clever 😉 I like…
Also between arrangements, there is actually no drag’n drop possibility. 😥
Ctrl+L to get the list window, click on the arrangement to expand it, select the part, drag into the new arrangement…
Myself, I drag’n’drop with the key modifiers.. very simple and straight fwd.. 🙂
yip, been here a long time.. a very public podestrian 🙂
hey pj, great to see you here!
Glad to hear of further developments as well 🙂
For myself, I find Podium to be a great dev host, solid ,reliable, doesn’t need you to put the dll anywhere special or set the compiler output to the std VST folder (dangerous!) 😛
well.. I can kinda see both sides..
Would it be worth having a Lock to Waveform/ Lock to timeline switch, depending on what you actually want to achieve?
thank you.. results are up. It was a good contest, and I enjoyed taking part alot. EQ22 came 15/31, so I was in the top half! another Podium user, stephancr, came second with a SynthMaker plug ‘Anna’ which was well deserved 🙂
let’s see what next years event brings..
Just a bump and quick reminder that voting ends on 31st October.. check your timezone, and vote if you if you feel inclined 🙂

It’s also in the monthly competition, so no vocals were harmed during the production of this track
I’ve been using the opensource PDFCreator print driver recently.. I can’t recall if it has TOC.. will check at home..
It’s good tho!
Voting has opened..
Ta Frits, I’m a few releases behind at the mo, having taken on some new work, but I’ll give this a spin as soon as I can!
