Re: Overture 5.6.4.0 (Coming soon)

Not sure what Don is up to nowadays. It’s probably a given that he’s working on the Encore project as well as the promised Overture 5 updates. Overture 6 will be a major new project that may take some time to code. Maybe he’s even working on ASO improvements and additions although not many are reall...

Re: Audio problems / Stuttering

Go to your Menu bar in Overture and click on Audio/MIDI then click on Audio settings. Then fiddle with your Sample rate and Audio buffer size. You’ll probably find a sweet spot that will get rid of the stuttering.

Re: Reinstalling OV5

Do you have this folder... C:\User\User\AppData\Roaming\Sonic Scores\Overture 5\User Presets If not, why not create a small user preset and see if and where Overture creates and places it. If you meet with no success in this endeavor, then your issue is beyond my knowledge base. As for a VST folder,...

Re: Current build — unnecessary accidentals?

The more I read posts like this the more I’m convinced that I’m using the last dependable version or build of Overture. There are a lot of posts dealing with problems and bugs are not applicable to the build that I’m using. I try to replicate the issue or problem, but I can’t because the issue or pr...

Re: Dynamic Marks in Piano Score

I finally found the old thread that showed how to do it. I C&P'ed it for you... Both staves of the Grand Staff are considered by Overture to be one track. Regardless of where the dynamic is placed within the area of the Grand Staff both staves adhere and respond to the dynamic entry regardless o...

Re: Two instruments on one track

I don’t know what the rest of your score looks like or how often you employ your clarinets, but you could try this simplified method of one channel per instrument. It will give you extra staves but will certainly make your score easier to read, easier to extract, easier to compose and easier to mani...

Re: Dynamic Marks in Piano Score

Yes. I posted clear instructions for how to do this in a previous post from sometime back. But I’ll be damned if I can find it. I’m afraid it’s a memory thing – my memory, not the computer's memory. The procedure is very simple. Give me a day or two and I’ll search the archive.

Re: How doI load a new instrument?

It also loads nicely in the ARIA player minus the big flashy organ picture. The ARIA engine comes with very nice effects and reverb controls. If you own a Garritan product you will have the ARIA engine. All 6 .sfz presets are loaded and visible and can be assigned to separate channels. I’ve saved th...

Re: How doI load a new instrument?

The LeedsTownHall Organ is a convoluted mess. Support is pathetic. The good reviews are questionable and dubious. The bad reviews reflect exactly what I’ve experienced. One of the preset’s is unworkable and sketchy. The programming meets the standard of a ‘free’ product – that is, don’t expect much....

Re: Viola Ensemble sample "washed out" sound

I would opine that this work of yours is absolutely beautiful. Your talent requires more than ‘cheap gear’ and if cheap gear produced this kind of sound you must be a certifiable genius. If indeed you did compose this using Overture you will have an .ovex file. Is ASO the library you were using? Som...

Re: Problem with Bassoon Sound

Something you might want to watch out for, Dr. Leonard, since I believe that you use ASO with Kontakt Player exclusively for your composing tasks. While I’m not trying to confuse the issue, using the Master Volume in Kontakt will be problematic when using ASO because it affects the volume of all ins...

Re: How doI load a new instrument?

F.Y.I. it should appear in Overture as ‘Plogue Art et Technologie, Inc’.
