Reverb - what use is that for ambient music ?, can't we just make do with spring reverb units from old Fender amplifiers, for really vintage tones ?

I'm joking, it does indeed look good, but the dreaded iLok account puts me off.

It does look good, and I assume sound good too - never had to consider an ilok - what are the problems?

The computer I will be using it on (if i buy it) will not be 'online' itself - could that be an issue?

Yes Seren it will be an issue.....for ilok to work it must be online so that your computer an the ilok license manager can be synced from the ilok website.  Its very straight forward but does require online connection.

Julio, are you 100% sure about this?

I do own some Play Libraries and just tested it offline (no I-net connection) and all works fine!  ???

Once it is authorized to the iLok you no longer need an online connection. I play live shows with my mac with an ilok and I turn off wifi during the performance and it works fine.

I don't have an ilok - answer from eventide:

Yes, it could cause problems, but you can do it. If you have an iLok you can download the license onto your iLok from another machine and use the iLok to move the license from one machine to the other. Note that if you do this, you'll still have to install iLok License Manager on the second machine. Alternatively, if you connect to the internet temporarily you can authorize the license, then turn networking back off.

There is a part of me that is resistant to ilok - which might just be my techophobe and luddite tendencies.

I have to say I'm really impressed.....lush, warm and sounds extremely close to my Eventide Eclipse, perhaps a little warmer and lush @ $79!  Very versatile verb.

Just did an ABC between the Eventide Eclipse, Exponential Audio Phoenix reverb (software) and the Ultra Reverb....Medium Hall preset and also on the eclipse I auditioned their recreation of the PCM70 a favorite of mine......Ultra Reverb to my ears came out ahead.

Anyone else?

Played with the demo for about 30 minutes, and quickly bought it.
It doesn't even compare to my old reverb (ArtsAcoustic). It's been a good plug-in for me, but I've been looking for a replacement for years.
Thanks again.  ;D

Hi,

Been using Live off/on since version 3.04. The markers are the warp markers that Live tries to set up for the transients in the clip (to what someone was saying about all these markers in the clip/sample).  I also have Studio One V2 but haven't done a lot with it since buy it 1/2 off a couple/few years ago. I like its window setup (similar to Live's). Session View is where you can create your clips/samples and mess with them and set things up as scenes (row across screen = scene which you trigger from right side of screen) and the follow-on actions (look into that as it's kind of cool). You can drag clips from Session to Arrangement via click/holding and drag to the buttons on right side or hit Tab and then drop into your track. Each corresponding track in session will record to its same track # in arrangement view as an FYI if you haven't found that (probably have).

The instrument (Live's) integration is great. VSTi handling is decent (could be better with some manufacturers, NI for one). The slice to MIDI stuff is sweet (read up in the manual, there's a couple directories for setting up default Impulse and Sampler if I recall as well).  I just have to get off my lazy ass and get back working on music....
