Hehe, well I just got round to having a look at this and WOW [Throws RMIV metaphorically out the window] I've just got stuck in to a new tune and it's more complete than most of my previous efforts and I've only got a Kontakt and Albino2 in the proverbial rack!! And lovely sounding too I found it a bit difficult to get into but the manual proved invaluable. I don't think I'd have been able to suss out the groups thing otherwise and prob stopped using it. In fact I find (with my limited useage so far) that the groups are the worst thing to set up if you've dragged lots of single samples to an instrument. But essential to use the send effects right. Oh, and remembering to turn on/off the all groups button when editting parameters..... but otherwise having loads of fun and got some nice big saws going how I wanted them using single oscillators...... I'm really trying to use the 'less is more' approach by restricting what I'm using in a track and getting into using more audio to free up processor power. It's not a slow PC (AMD2000xp, 1gig PC2100 ram, fast barracuda disks) but it does start to struggle sometimes. I think I've fallen foul of the 'load everything i can find' syndrome and with all that choice never really got under the skin of any of the VSTi's. This forum has really helped get my enthusiasm back again too...... just need some decent monitors now and i'll be happy.
