Extending Maple Virtual MIDI Cable to > 4 ports

This appears to be a simple registry hack. I've managed to extend VMC 352 to 16 ports with the following .reg file: (This is for Win XP Pro 32 bit) Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\mapledxp\MaplePorts\MarbleSoundMaple\input1] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACH...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

Progress this afternoon: 1. Ignore Cubase's track-based bank/prog numbers. Set the MIDI channel only. 2. Ditch all attempts to use jack on windows. - This means forgetting netjack for now. - Even with the highest frames/period setting (matched on both master and slave) the returned audio was still c...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

Thanks Alex for all that, I shall certainly work through each point and see where I get. With regards to workflow, this is some of the better info you guys could provide. Indeed I'm open to adapting things to work better, rather than trying to fit cubase/LS into any ideas I might already have about ...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

OK, different articulations for the same instrument on the same track does make sense. I was thinking more of the case of GIG files like the VSL "String Ensemble.gig" which contains banks for VL/VA/VC/KB. What's the deal with being able to play each of those instruments from the same GIG file but on...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

I have yet to try switching the server/client roles of the netjack setup. For the record, I got MIDI transmission using the LS machine as the netjack master, but the audio that returned was garbled beyond belief. I guess this isn't a good route to go, especially as the startup sequence is also very...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

uh, great, ok, but I don't have your setup ;) I tried today to use MIDI routing over the network with netjack/jack2 between windows and linux. It doesn't work. All the ports appeared on each side of the connection OK, but jackd went to 100% CPU on both machines and no MIDI data was received on the l...

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

I do have MIDI channel efficiency in mind due to currently only having 1 physical MIDI link between the machines.

I have also looked into using some sort of MIDI over network, but I can't find a (free) solution that will transmit from windows to linux.

Re: Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

Thanks for the info ccherrett. However, I cannot migrate to Rosegarden/OOM just yet because of my cubase-centric work. I'm also intrigued though why it's necessary to go to the effort of inserting prog change messages into a track. I can see 2 problems. 1. It's more work 2. You end up with a single ...

Re: What's your setup?

OK, I might as well get involved. Currently I'm running 2 machines, but my emphasis is mostly on real recorded audio, not sampling. The sampler may well prove to be a temporary addition to the main goal, depending on how well I can get it all to work together. 1. Main Audio/Sequencer Athlon 3500+ in...

Help with using LS with Cubase and VSL

Hi there, I'm currently rebuilding my studio and also currently have custody of a friend of mine's VSL 1st ed. set. I'm trying to get my head around using the VSL with LS, as I don't have any other software capable of using the GIG format. I notice that most GIG files contain many instruments, or ar...
