Spectrasonics - Omnisphere. It's excellent but while installing it, the software has effectively wiped the library of it's sister program Trillian which has left me with practically no bass parts whatsoever on the Shineback album.

I am going to re-install it tonight in the hope that Pro Tools will remember which patches were used on which tracks. but if not, then I'll be forced to spend some sigificant amount of time rebuilding them from scratch.  Undecided


Christ in a bucket. What a bunch of amateurs these music software people are.
Spectrasonics have built their system to share a common sound engine (called STEAM) so that all of their products can integrate seemlessly with one another. The downside is that if you don't watch what you are doing, you can move that folder to a new location, effectively rendering the previous program's sound library unusable.

This is what happened in my case. I've checked and all the midi and patch info is still there so my hope is that all I need to do is create a duplicate track underneath the original, invoke a new instance of Trillian and then copy the midi across.

First you need to wrangle the blobsqueezle firmly yet gently, then don't forget to operate a click-synch anticlockwise in the undergrowth before fettling the murgatronic ontomancer.
Draw a pentagram on the floor - blue chalk, remember, NEVER green - and stand in it while you sacrifice three chickens and an elderly goat. Light a sage brush and go into each room in the house in turn, paying special attention to stairs and doorways.

And keep your pants on throughout.

> elderly goat

These days, I think that's a bit imprecise.  Of course, back in my day, you knew what elderly was, biut nowadays, I'm not so sure.  Can we get a clarification from the judges, please?

An elderly goat is a goat that is no longer in the first flush of youth, but isn't quite dead yet.

Goats that are 11 or more years old are generally considered elderly.

That description is certainly applicable to me.

The good news is that I reinstalled both Omnisphere and Trillian (this time paying a lot more attention to where the installation folders were placed), booted up Pro Tools and hey presto! Everything was back to normal.

That was a bullet well dodged.  Smiley
