Another "utopia" from Holland. First I am using Overture with the playback facilities. Suppose I have an orchestral score with 17 or more instruments, dito tracks, all assigned to some instrument samples. For making wave files due for SONAR, Digital Performer or else, you have to output each solo-ed track under VST/Record to File separately. With very short pieces that doesn't take much time, but for a symphony or pianoconcerto with 3 or 4 parts this is really flogging a dead horse (is this the right saying?), in particular when the parts are 5 to 20 minutes long. Imagine yourself, 17 tracks multiplied by 20 - per part and we have 4 - . so from early morning until late at night I am merely waiting and waiting...... until the tracks have been played one by one and output to individual wave files.
Wether or not this will possibly be solved in the next version of Overture, I really don't have a clue.
Is there some program like Cantabile/Bidule capable of having input from redirected MIDI - low latency - passing by the appropriate VSTi plugs - making separate audio files for all tracks? All in one go?
