SONIC TALK 079 - MESSE is over and now the major shows are done for this part of the year. Nick returns to the 'Cast and is joined by PJ Tracy - from Minneapolis - studio owner and player extraordinaire. Also with me is Dave Spiers from GFORCE Software, who just managed to avoid the trip to MESSE by a mere 24hrs. Finally Rich Hilton - who spends much of his time working with Nile Rogers in on the line from Connecticut. This weeks agenda is pretty straightforward, it's a post MESSE de-brief, and unsurprisingly we are drawn to the amazing Melodyne demonstration which seems to qualify easily as the hit of the show. Of course, there are other mention worthy products too and we do... The SM Pro Audio V-Box VSTi player, Circle Synth, Korg's DS-10, Prism Sound Orpheus convertors and more of course. Remember... Do Call Us We’ve set up a Skype account for people to leave comments (which may be played on subsequent episodes) or requests to be considered for a part on the show.

It was nice to hear that all you guys' jaws hit the floor about Melodyne 2.0 as well! Sadly, my wife ENTIRELY failed to understand the momentousness. Bah! Roll on the Autumn, eh?

I'm SERIOUSLY hoping the put Audio to MIDI in the plug-in, by the way. There's a lot of stuff in the demo vids I don't think you could do unless the up the feature list of the plugin. We might all have to wait for Cre8 or Studio before we get the really good toys... and how long will THAT be?

Great show! I'd love to know what the ideas behind that new Melodyne version are, too... Very interesting stuff to think about what defines a single note in a polyphonic musical context!

You forgot to mention:

- SM Audio had an amazing staff (esp. the brown haired one), yay ...

- Focusrite/Novation - extra friendly staff, amazing controller - Nocturn and the smaller Liquid Mix

- The tiny Waldorf sounds great

btw. @Gforce - please don't go the iLok route. Synchrosoft's better - less problems and still not cracked.

It would be cool if NI's authorization system was a standard: two possible authorizations so you can have two systems that you can authorize, additional authorizations by just removing an old authorization in the authorization software and most handy of all: one authorization software that manages all of your authorizations. And no key in sight...

I think NI changed that.
