Re: Who has / is using Bome's Midi Translator along with Forte?

I do.

I have a setup where I use 8 channels and can split/layer and control volume manually or with MIDI control triggered by ECHo.

Re: Disabling Aftertouch in MIDI Routing

It's currently not possible in forte itself. The same goes for pitchbend for instance. forte only allows for filtering of incoming MIDI CC's. I've used an external MIDI filter for these kinds of things in the past, like Bome Translator Pro or MIDIOX. Me too. I use Bome MT and pass, thin out, or eli...

Re: Erroneous initialization of plugins

I installed the latest beta and got the new DeviceCompatibility.XML Mike uploaded. I still have my "MIDI random controller firewall" implemented with MT. So far, I haven't seen the problem again. Need to do some more testing, but so far so good. :D

Re: Erroneous initialization of plugins

Hi Mike, I've looked into the DeviceCompatibility.XML file. I don't see anything for Kontakt 5 in there. Maybe there is a later version than what I have? I looked through the Registry and the Interwebs for the CLSID for K5--nothing I could find. I've made a copy of my \users\..\roaming\brainspawn\fo...

Mr B, Have you gotten any further with this? Do you think it's related to your other post about garbage settings of VSTs? I think it is. I use a Kontakt rack with several instruments where, in Kontakt: MIDI 1 = Acoustic Grand Piano MIDI 2 = Other pianos/electric/upright, etc MIDI 3 = Accordians and ...

Re: Request for Windows 10 Experiences with Forte 4.1

Here's an update on Windows 10 adventures. I'd have to say Windows 10 and Forte 4.1 (latest beta) are doing pretty well. However, Focusrite audio interface is another story. I built a computer specific to requirements I understood for Forte, Focusrite Sapphire Pro 40, Novation SL control surface, Bo...

Re: No info on CPU load?

Evilantal,

I'm running Forte 4.1.3 and Win10 and the CPU% is showing. BTW, I don't remember seeing it when I was running Win7 (yesterday). When it showed up last night, I think that was the first time I saw it.

Re: Preset Manager and MIDI Program Map

Hey Mr. B, I see you didn't get a reply yet. Forte uses a number of configuration files in the XML format. The rack file is also XML, but has a different file name extension. Some of the XML files will be in \Users\{your name}\Roaming\brainspawn\forte 4\*. plugins.xml and plugins64.xml come to mind ...

Re: How to set recovered .rcf file to xml format?

Ouch, that's a hard lesson..... I save rack, fxp and ini files to a Dropbox shared folder. So everything I do is immediately updated and backed up in the cloud for download in emergencies. Also helps me synchronise forte setups over different systems (live rig and desktop DAW). +1 for DropBox backup

Not at all a joke.

One thing I'd like is to map the Korg Nano solo buttons to p...

Re: New crash issue on launch - Solved = Avast

Good to know. I was looking for a substitute for AVG. My company uses AVAST so I was interested in that one. Went with Bull instead. I'm still in the trial period, but no problems so far. And it got pretty good reviews. Time will tell.
