Changing font size does not work here..
Thank you Frits!! Very good release! I’ve been waiting for a long time to see timing options in Podium. Finally it is here. And you implemented this feature so well.
Welcome John! 🙂
ok, this is something completely different to what the thread starter wants, but could you also look into a mp3-export feature in the near future? Or at least an option for opening a sound file with an external editor, so that saving in mp3 could be done via audacity and the lame codec for instance?
Better quantize options and mp3-export.. these two would make me a happier Podium user 🙂
An “advanced quantize” edit command has been on my todo list for quite a while. This will open a dialog where you can set “quantize strength” in percentage, along with other stuff like randomization and swing. The dialog will have a “preview” option (like the beat-slice dialog), so that you can hear changes to the settings in real-time.
I’m currently on a roll with track management updates, but I can be persuaded to take a little detour around this feature. How about this: If you buy a license, I’ll release 2.27 next week with the dialog described above? You’ll be able to try out betas and have your say in how features should work 😉

oops… ok.. 🙂 😳 Didn’t see that one.. Never tried a double-click 😉
Long time no see.. I hope you are doing well! As Sam I was absent from the forum for a while. Today I took a look at the new version of Podium and I must admit, you really really nailed it this time. The ui changes are beautiful! New releases are always interesting to look at, but gui changes are the most fun part to discover and explore.. 🙂 Podium really looks polished now.. This inspires me and now I want to record something in Podium… Again: Thank you Frits!!
Seems to be a very lonely guy who has nobody he can talk to… Sad world we live in.. 😕
Good decision Frits! Playing guitar can really help to relax sometimes. I started playing electric guitar at the age of 16. My first guitar had a broken neck and was hard to play. It didn’t take me long to buy my second and third etc. guitar 😉
I am 27 now and I never had any pauses in between. My guitars stood by my side for all the years now.. I tried several styles, and I also had a classical guitar once, but I sold it, because I liked the sound of a western guitar more. My latest guitar is a red Gretsch 5129 which I really love.
Guitars are so versatile in terms of sound and playing technique. I love the rock sound of the 80s most. Playing and feeling solos with a certain sound can be a very strong experience that makes you forget the problems of your day.
Frits, I can only encourage you to learn as much as you can.. And have a look at all those great accoustic rock ballads of the 80s and 90s e.g. Nothing else matters, More than words etc. You will need time to learn those, especially as a beginner, but it’s great fun!
And don’t give up when your fingers start to hurt.. That’s normal!! 😉
As far as ecourses are concerned, I don’t have any experience with classical guitar lessons, but for electric guitar there are tons of stuff in the internet. Even YouTube offers some (!!) nice lessons.
I get cpu spikes and audio dropouts each time I change the preset. I have not experiences with softsynths, because most of the time I record audio. Is this supposed to happen on my 2.66 Dual core machine?
I really would encourage you Frits, to put Nucleum in the Podium installer when it’s done. Seems to be a very versatile plugin you put together here.
Several years ago I had the 1010LT. It is a very nice recording solution. The drivers “were” rock solid and even with Linux, all the inputs and outputs could be used. Cascading several 1010LTs is also possible.
You get very low latencies with this card, compared to my usb interface. I cannot tell you, whether there have been updates to the drivers or not. But since this card is still on the market, I assume it is still being worked on.
I hope that little piece of information helps.
I like the idea of contributing to the music of other Podium users. But how would you manage to deal with huge download sizes of 32 Bit Wav files?
In order to establish a “Podium musician base”, it would be cool, if every Podium user adds his style/instrument/etc. to the user profile or signature.
But when collaborating, I think Podium’s lack of more bread and butter plugins makes it difficult, to create a “decent” sounding project, that can be loaded and played back instantly..
But to answer your questions:
1. –> yes
2. –> yes, since there are so many styles
3. –> the VIP-Lounge seems to be a good place; it would be only accessable to Podium users
podianer, i’ll be curious what you think, especially since you are a podium user (i think?).
Think about what? The plugins? As I wrote above, the combination of Podium and the free ReaPlugs is really great and versatile. Reaper is a beast of its own, and I haven’t managed to try every plugin yet. But I like the very usable mixer in reaper. Something Podium still needs to improve on.. In Reaper you can bypass an effect by holding shift and pressing the left mouse button. You delete the effect by holding alt and pressing the left mouse button. In Podium you have to click on the “x” in order to bypass an effect. Still a one-click solution, but Reaper does it even more clever, imo.
I have great fun simply playing around with DAWs.. Currently I find myself playing with Podium, Reaper and Tracktion 3. The last mentioned surely has a nice workflow, but it still has bugs. Something Podium is really good at is the gapless audio engine. In T3 you get gaps all the time by activating plugins, changing the order of tracks or what ever. I realize I get quite offtopic now.. 🙂
So let’s cut it short: Reaper evolved a lot!! And the plugs are very good in combination with Podium. 8)
