Great post suges!! I agree with almost everything you said! I also tried Tracktion and loved its ease of use, but as you clearly pointed out, when it’s time to “work” with it, it is really annoying, as far as bugs are concerned, or some really weird work arounds of things, that are so easy in other hosts. And as you said: Now that Podium has offline bounce, it will rock the whole sequenzer world, as soon as Frits puts more effort on marketing!!
Thanks for that really important feature Frits!! But I have a problem here. When bouncing a track with Halion Player, everything works fine, but when “unload plugin” is activated, Podium crashes without a warning. But I can tell you that this is certainly related to Halion Player! This buggy plugin crashed several times in Cubase SX 3. I will check all my VSTi to verify that!
By the way, you wrote that the punch in/out markers tell Podium what to render.. I still have to draw an event in the bounce track. Is this on purpose? I think for people, who are new to Podium, a warning like “you haven’t created an event yet” would be helpful! Otherwise they don’t know why Podium doesn’ render anything.
But everyone need to have a chance to ask for something
Max. I agree with you!
And I want to add that I only asked if there will be an option for realtime rendering. I didn’t request it. I don’t even need it, when offline bounce works correctly! But as I know, other hosts have this, IMO this WOULD help making Podium a top-tier contender. Nothing else do I have in mind, because we all Podium-users want that Frits get something back for his great work! This forum is for sharing opinions and talking about things, and not “bogging Frits”.
Will there be an option for bounce in realtime? I know that the actual bounce is in realtime, but one has to play the arrangement, which, concerning spikes, can be difficult.. Some plug-ins need the slow export/bounce to work correctly..
wow!!! That was fast!! Looking forward to this!!
Here’s the same!! 🙂
Because of Podium’s hierarchic structure, you can do this on each track, including the master track, right? Or am I missing anything, Frits? That would be very a comfortable freeze/bounce solution for single tracks AND the complete mixdown..
Option A seems to be the way I’d prefer. It’s not very different to the way bouncing already is implemented, and the user can decide for each track individually, as I have understood, how he wants to bounce.
I must admit that this feature is the ONLY thing, that has kept me from working with Podium on difficult projects this far. Frits, when you have done this, you will make many users happy, and much more people will enter the world of Podium!! 🙂 At least I will be happy!
Great news!!! Looking forward to that! I am convinced that Podium will be a major success when a more usable preset handling and offline bounce are implemented!! Can’ t wait to see further development!!
I, too, am a Jamstix owner, and was wondering if you solved the MIDI output problem you were asking about in this thread.
To be honest: for now, it seems that I can’t work with Podium the way I need. That’s why I temporarily changed back to Cubase. Until there are some features I really need, I’ll stay with Cubase. 🙁
Jamstix e.g. spikes in Podium, which it doesn’t in Cubase. Ok, that’s a problem that only appears on my DAW, but I need Jamstix working.
It’s not that I like Cubase more than Podium, but MultiFX, Offline-Bounce and Midi-Streaming are way to important for me, that I can live without them. It seems, that even Frits doesn’t know, when these features arrive. That means, I have to wait for Podium, until my wishes come true.
Hope you find a way to make Jamstix running with an external sampler in Podium. ❗
That’s a rhetorical question, right?
I’m certainly interested in the project file!
Sounds great!! I like the middle part.. sounds powerful, because of the dynamic in the strings… Did you make that with Podium?? 🙂
This plugin is really amazing.. I downloaded all the samples they have on their homepage. Really impressing!
I found a way to make the spikes go away.. Seems that the internal Jamstix engine uses too much cpu.. When using Jamstix only as drum sample player, the average usage is 10 %. It’s that low only when playing a few samples.. the more the sampler plays several samples at one time, the more cpu (up to 90 % and higher) uses Jamstix/Podium.. So it’s rather a problem Jamstix has, and not Podium.. 😕 I try to contact Zauni (Jamstix dev) if he has an idea, why the internal sampler uses that much cpu with my configuration..
The fact that the spikes occur on the first beat is maybe related to the fact, that on the first beat there are often more samples played..
