Anybody else experiencing long loading times with some of these strings.
I thought it was just the insrtuments with mod wheel controlling various articluations that took long to load. but even the Marcato violin took some time.
Honestly, I\'m experiencing 1-3 minute loading times. Of course some patches load in about 10 seconds, so not all, but many of the ones I\'ve loaded have had this slow loading. of course, there are lots of samples to load but...It can kill the creativity a bit.
I read anotehr thread that said amount of RAM could be the issue. I\'m at 512 Mushkin RAM on a PIII 1GHz...is this part of the problem...computer is too old?
Let me just add that the strings sound beautiful...no complaints there at all. Very inspiring sounds. Inspiring one to compose.
I\'m experiencing the same thing. I\'ve been wanting to go through and make some smaller gigs for quicker loading but I\'ve been too busy. On one hand I like being able to load everything in one shot... on the other hand it\'s quite annoying. Go figure... can\'t I just be happy?
I find that the SoloViolin MW=Spic/Det/HrdSus/Esp and the SoloCello MW=Spic/Det/Hrd Sus/Esp take a very long time to load. When I load these together as part of a template I leave my computer for about 3 to 5 minutes.
The Viola loads up quickly.
I have 1 gig of ram and and Pentium 4 running at 1.4 and I still have long loading times for some of the samples.
By the way, you might check out these pieces I did with KH Solo strings.
I\'d appreciate your comments.
Your comps make me feel like I\'m playing with puppies on a beautiful summer day at the beach, while eating sorbet surrounded by stunning volleyball beauties and perhaps even a hot air balloon hovering gently overhead....
But I DO love your pieces. I just ordered from Kirk today, but I am afraid you won\'t be hearing any of that from me for quite some time. You have some sinister progressions there my friend. Again... love \'em.
Marko, you rock!! Nice pieces. All of them. and a very nice way to show the exceptional greatness of these strings.
If you would be so kind as to list the instruments you\'re primarily using? Are you able to capture most of these articulations by loading the larger mod wheel files? or are you finding yourself having to load in a lot of different articulations and having to tweak a lot?
Just curious. i have the strings but I\'m still new at getting to know them.
BTW, you listed the two instruments that feel like they take 5 minutes each to load. You\'re right...it\'s load and then go do something else for 10 minutes...come back and get to work....but it does kind of kill the spontaniety of composing.
I too am using the KHSS Solo string, but in Kontakt. I did not experience such long load times. It takes me around a minute to acces the whole Violin programs, and around 40 seconds to access the Cello and Viola programs. Once I have acces to one of these, it takes me between 5 and 15 seconds to convert a program in .nki format and start using it in Kontakt. However, I never load the mod wheel or key switch programs. I use either the simple multivelocity articulations (to use as is or to create my own Keyswitch programs) and the release triggered (the up and down) articulations.
The system is a Dual Athlon 2200+ (1,8GHz) with 1Gb of RAM, and I use Kontak mostly as a VST-i in Cubase SX.
I\'m using KHSS in Halion and even importing the sets Kirk said might be troublesome in importing (actually, no problem there - just use Megatrigg judiciously); so far, it all runs very quickly over here. Go Figure. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
