    • I like that! I wouldn't have even thought of using that with an electro-acoustic guitar; hmmh...  I bet I'd like this Ground Control Audio Noodles pedal; I've recently been delving into hitting a tube-amp's or my Iridium's input with midrange-affecting and boosting stomp-boxes like: A vintage-y germanium Treble Booster one with six settings, from full-range boost on up through increasingly higher and higher high-pass cutoff points including that of the two original vintage Dallas Rangemaster models, and one even higher than those...   A Tube-Screamer based pedal, that has several clipping-modes, and that famous, classic TS "mid-hump"   A Keeley 'Retro Germanium Super Phat Mod', which has a Phat Switch for a clobbering low, low-mids and mids boost      Indeed!      You might need a pair of these:   
    • I took a look, I like the concept and well, everything except... those 3 footwitches are very close together. 15 EEE here, I'd have a difficult time switching the mid in and out without also switching either the bass or the treble or even both.  I've got 2 Tech 21 pedals with 3 footswitches each, the Tri AC and Double Drive 3x and both of them have plenty of space between the switches. The old school Peavey footswitches with 4 switches were wll spaced too, they had a big gap in the center and two pairs of decently spaced switches out near the ends. Sure makes life easier for us Sasquatch types!!! 😁
    • got this up and running    
    • I don’t know if it will help but I know what I would try if it was me in your shoes.  The music store closed a few years ago and I think Gary and Joan are in California.  Joan Gand is the organist I thought she handled the Ventilator stuff.     The sound business is still going on I would call them 1-630-509-2457 and hope I could talk to Tim Swan.  Tim has been with the Gand’s since the 80s.  He might be able to get you connected to the right person or know what is going on.  Tim might not know anything about the MI stuff. Again, this might not help but it’s the type of desperation move I would try.  
    • I think this came out late last year, but I just heard of it today, so here it is. A bass boost, mid boost, and treble boost all in one pedal. Each part lets you choose between 3 different center freqs. My primary guitar is an acoustic with a Fishman Rare Earth pickup, and this should be great at letting me set one EQ curve for flatpicking and another one (or two) for fingerpicking.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKgq2L71Xxc

    • Yes, it's an editing system that goes back to the eighties really; with so few knobs on the panel, it's inevitable. There have been long discussions on this very forum about the use of potentiometers vs. endless encoders for this kind of use, and I am strongly in favor of the latter, because if you use regular pots, the physical position of the knob has nothing to do with the stored value of any given parameter. The Uno Synth Pro uses pots, unfortunately. It gives you three choices of behaviour to attenuate the problem: Jump (the value jumps to the physical position of the knob immediately), Relative (it goes incrementing or decrementing starting from the actual position), or PassThru (the knob has no effect until it matches the stored value). Neither is ideal, but personally, I find that the PassThru mode is the most usable.  As I said in my little review, I didn't use the software editor to program my sounds, and I was able to set a decent workflow with the panel only. I strongly advise to use the editor though, as it's very well done.
    • In regards to updates, Kurzweil is still updating the now discontinued Forte line, so I have every confidence that they will update the K2700 for years to come. If enough people want sample editing, they’ll put it in. Just send them a nice message about it. They are good people and want to make their customers happy.
    • So, you reuse pots for different functions? To me that seems an odd decision, since every time you switch functions, the pots will be at a different position than the actual one for the function. Seems like a total dealbreaker for me but maybe in reality it's not that bad?
    • Phillip, thanks for the comprehensive response!   For me, it was more of a curiousity question although probably inevitable from an actual Pro Tools user at some point.  I suspect most of us are loyal to our dislike of learning curves more than to the DAW we've become accustomed to using.    I was pondering flipping from Waveform to Logic Pro but a clean up of plugins has eliminated the problems I was haviing. Waveform went Apple Silicone with version 12, which was a while ago. My final hurdle is the Steinberg UR22 Mk II I'm using at the place I am currently staying. Firmware to update to M1 is in testing, it won't be long.  It does run well on Rosetta 2 but I'll be glad to move forward.    At home I run a Presonus Quantum and I am pretty sure they've already updated their firmware for that. Eventually I'll be back home and using that interface. 
    • Pro Tools 2022.5 is, unfortunately, still running under Rosetta 2. I know, I know... it's been quite a while since the M1 was first released and Pro Tools is the only major DAW that still doesn't have a native Apple Silicon version. Hopefully they'll have that in their next release... but, who knows? 🤷‍♂️   From what I've read in the release notes over on Avid's website, this release appears to be focused more on bug fixes and less on new features. I don't mind a good bug fix-oriented release if it addresses significant issues or longtime problems, and the aux buss issue that was fixed was significant. There may be other bugs that were impacting performance and that have also been fixed... However, an optimized M1 native version would lead to even further performance improvements for the Mac Studio and all of the rest of the Apple Silicon-equipped computers, too. And Avid really needs to get that happening. Okay, griping over – for now.    Back to the aux bus issue that was fixed. Let me start with an example of how the system performs using a reference that is available to all current PT users. Using the previous version of PT, I was able to run the current Pro Tools demo session song (Low Roar) just fine. I was even able to double everything in the session (audio files, tracks, busses, VIs, plugins, etc.) and run that without any issues. However, I started to see errors when I tried to triplicate everything. It started to play back fine, but I started seeing "running out of CPU" error messages about halfway through the song. With the current version of Pro Tools, the Mac Studio is able to play the same session back without any errors or issues.    With the session tripled, it adds up to 159 tracks, several busses, a bunch of reverbs, several amp sims, three dozen virtual instruments (36), several channel strips, and various other plugins. Again, while it couldn't get through the song (tripled) using the previous version of PT, it now runs fine. The CPU Total meter in Pro Tools maxes out at 84% at one brief point in the song, but there are zero error messages or any other issues. The response is just as speedy and fluid as when you're running the original, unaltered song.     Part of that performance difference/improvement is undoubtedly due to the aux bug issue that has been fixed in PT 2022.5. Basically, aux sends were gobbling up a lot of CPU for some reason, and now they're not. More on that shortly. I want to get the links to the threads over on the DUC so that anyone else who is interested can try opening the sessions and trying things out for themselves.
