What\'s up with the samples in DD Solo WWinds? I\'m trying to export .wav files from the bassoon patch in the GS Instrument Editor
and it\'s telling me that most of the samples (except a few) are compressed and can\'t be exported. What\'s up with this?
WA! format files cant be exported by GigaEdit. I believe it started as a copy portection scheme, but it just ended up being a pain in the *** to users like me and you. AWAVE Studio can export the files and convert to anyformat. It is a GREAT app, and worth picking up.
AWAVE can do alot more than that. It can batch process conversions to and from ANY file format. Somewhat like Barbabatch on the MAc...but more file formats (even VAG). It will also do processing via DX plugs in the batch. Batch sample rate convert. Batch convert from different sample library formats. and all sorts of other little deals that blow me away as a tweaker. I really love this app.
I too would like to sing the praises of this program in conjunction with DD\'s libraries. I\'m currently running all of the brass samples through Auto-Tune one at a time. I agree with the \"leaving samples with natural intonation imperfections\" theory to a point. But some of these are way off. Try playing unsion octaves with the Horn gigs and you\'ll hear things that no horn player would let slide in a performance. Nothing against Dan, it\'s a problem with sampling musicians by themselves in a room instead playing with music to which they would normally adjust.
