I was just trying that one and indeed there are no gaps when the audio event is drawed in advance.
As I do a lot of multtrack recording, and, because it became possible a few release ago to record without drawing the region, I just start recording without drawing the region.
– ASIO sample position gaps: 1 (1024)
This entry concerns me. It means the ASIO driver jumped forward in time, which could explain the gaps in your recording. The report you listed was only measured for 14 seconds. If you measure over a longer period, such as the time taken to record the sound in your screenshot, does the gaps count increase then?
Wathever lenght I record, the gaps are reoccuring every bar or region update. They don’t change in frequency or interval.
The gaps are arround 9000 samples wide. I copied some gaps in Audition into a new file and they where each arround 9270 and 9400 samples long.
Changed the buffer to 2048 but it doesn’t change the gaps’ lenght or frequency
The recording above was in linear recordingmode. so i could not change tempo. I tried to record in musical mode and I notice that the gaps appears every time the region is updated (becoming longer) >> so in musical mode it’s every bar. If i change tempo and open the file in Audion you can clearly see that with a lower tempo the file has a longer wave before a gap occurs
see here for the synchronity with the mesures and gaps

It seems it has to do with the redrawing of the region or interface
I have this problem only in Podium. I had to reinstall a lot of drivers etc but everything else seems to work fine. I read you changed some code for the responiveness of the screen in this release 1.36 > i have a hunch there is something wrong there
Yes it seems some time ago that I posted something, I’m a lot on the road to record and play music.
If I record different sessions it would be easy if I can set a basic eq/volume/otherplugs etc for every track but common for all sessions. For that reason it would be easy if they are in the same arrangement.
I already tried to start another arrangement but I stumbled into another “problem” that way.
One moment I tried to to copy an arrangement in a project (browser window) with the intention to use the basic setting (eq etc which were already set for one session) but Podium started to copy (it seems) all the audio files as well (which is a lot for a 1hour 16 track session). I assumed it would just copy the arrangement and it’s settings and references to the audio files. I know I can deviate that by deleting the audio files before copying, but that becomes a bit tricky; I’m always afraid if something happened I can’t go back and undo.
Nonetheless it would be much more usefully if you could record the different sessions(autoomatic seperate wavefiles) in the same arrangement because it’s easyer to do the EQing/otherplugins-setting in one go for all the sessions >> for direct listening purposes. I know It’s possible to record different/separate sessions in one arrangement but it’s not really user-friendly
Next time I’m going to record in different arrangements and then import the audio files in one global arrangement for mixing etc.
ok, thanks Frits.
they’re not synth edit, jon uses delphi… but that shouldn’t be an issue.. Have you tried any of the voxengo plugs? they are delphi too..
Sorry, I meant that I have problems with a lot of Synthedit plugins, not with plugins from ConcreteFX [exept this one]. It’s the first time I tried one from CFX and because of the problem I wondered if it was Synthedit made.
I just downloaded Podium1.17 and I experience some strange behaviour with audio showing in the curve editor. Midi notes don’t seem a problem but audio is not showing up al the time.
Strange artefacts I encountered
– The waveform shows up in the wrong place >> it doesn’t correspond with the actual relation between the curve and audio in the arrange window. [see picture]
– The waveform doesn’t show, only if you scroll in some direction it suddenly appears.
– The waveform only appears if you draw the curve, but if you stop drawing (and loose your mousebuttion) it disappears again.
I can confirm it. At the end there also was a message that the plugin has performed an illegal action (and there is possible memory corruption because of that). I only tested this Adder
Are these plugins made with Synthedit. I have problems with a lot of them.
I’ll just copy/paste that into the future development list, shall I? 😉
I like the current bold printed feature in the future list >> floating-point audio 8)
I like the new mixer coloring behaviour. It’s much more clear. The differentiation between grouptracks or tracks which parent other track and tracks which are childtracks (have no input)
The eventnames are in a subtile way much more clear. Also the ghost icon in the inspector is very helpfull
Also the other improvements and additions great
This is certainly a pro application in the sense that it handles audio and midi with the same quality as the big names. So you can achieve the same quality standard as any other application like Cubase, Logic etc.
Of course Podium does it his own way, it has its own structural concept . And this structure could seem difficult at first it’s infact the logical or “natural” flow of audio and midi data. In Cubase and in lesser extend Logic these processes are more hidden and you see and work with more hardware referenced structures and concepts. For myself I never liked and understood the suggestif hardware references in application. 10 years ago it was perhaps good to make a bridge beacause sequencers and audio recording on computer were fairly new. But these days I find it irritating and not in relation the way computing works.
For that I find podium very natural and completly integrated with the computer way of working.
So it cost indeed 1/10th of the others big ones and you get basicly the same functionality.
Cubase an Logic have more different options to span a broader potential userbase. for example scoring, direct acces to Digidesign hardware, support for Hui consoles etc etc. So the question is if you need any of these things. Do you need acces to Digidesign hardware, do you need score, do you need to export broadcast waves, do you need to score for movies etc.
The core of Logic and Cubase is where podium fits (without all these supplements). And I think podium is as good.
I always worked with Logic and since I switched to pc I crossgraded to Cubase SX2 and exept for some finesses I don’t mis anything in Podium of them. Certainly not the plugins which come with cubase (never used them) and also not for the score because I have other programs for that and don’t use Cubase to score.
Podium offers more then the light version of Cubase and Logic and still cost less.
You’ll have to work a bit with podium and see it appeals to you. And it’s not the bread and butter application but once you understand the logic of it you see or feels it’s logicality and every thing becomes easy.
What it has what non of the others has it’s complete organisation of your material in the project browser. and podium has (in sync with it’s concept) a very unique and flexible way of bouncing
I must smell it. I just went to this forum after two days or so. Strange 😆
the most simple way to do this is via the project wizard.
Load your plugin there as multitimbral.
When you do it like that podium will create a device mapping for every channel of that plugin.
In Podium you can load a plugin as insert which means that for every time you assign it a new instance will be created.
For a multitimbral plugin this way is not preferable because you want to acces the same plugin via different channels. To achieve this podium makes a global plugin instance. which means you can map the same plugin different times but it stays the same instance of the plugin. by making a global plugin you can duplicate it and point each devicemapping of it to another midi channels (but the wizard did that for you now)
You can check this if you load your plugin as multitimbral. in your project browser in the devices there will be created different device mapping for that plugin (for all channelsà. doubbelclick on one of the device mappings and you’ll see that global is checked and that that instance is assigned to a specific midi channel. It’s also posible to do this manual but for now the wizard is best
Now you can map your tracks with all the needed device mappings for every channel.
Dont’t forget to click right on one Sample thank mapped track and choose plugin preset and there new bank preset library. Click syncronize on the left preset tab. now your plugins presets will be stored with your podium project. You just have to asign it to one of youre Sample Thank tracks and all will be syncronized (because it’s a global instance)
I hope this is somewhat clear
