_l'installation is very simple: just extract the zip in the back of his choice for the Standalone version, folder Plugs in VSTi / VST usual for the VST version.
_the April 9, 2008 a few problems with the automation of VST parameters in Live,
but three days Senso resolved bugs, improving considerably over ergonomics. (the VST is still in beta 13/04/2008)
_Usine Takes a "normal" configuration of all software of computer music, as a view "mix" for a "timeline", but as this software is completely modular, you can quickly return to a sprawling cosmogonic system patches and in patches (a diving well assisted living!) which is comparable to the best collections of Russian dolls, or MAX / MSP ...
But easy for a novice without much going into details,
faders, buttons, presets, you must understand that néamoins "show list" on a sampler provides access to the dialog management samples!
-The management of inputs and outputs audio / midi; through the set-up (ctrl + F5) is unique!
it can switch from one configuration to mix together in a surround mix 12.1 to home stereo 2-track running with ASIO4ALL in a few clicks, keyboard shortcuts are very useful ...
_the manual is clear, minimal: the functions, windows, modules and parameters are described simply, cross-links provide a deeper subjects, a few here and there ... Too bad Senso did not give a course in MIDI, programming, mathematics, or, as in other audio software, Olivier Sens working alone, the traditional way!
Plant is operating very successfully on my configuration.
Version 3.61 is very stable. I test the 3.63beta, I crashed once in 3 days ...
very good performance; photo!
_en matter of electro-acoustic I play the synthesizer and MIDI since 1982, computer music and direct to disk since 1999, software: ProTools it, Reason, Recycle, Samplitude, Soundforge, Ableton Live, CubaseSX, Vegas, Acid, MAX / MSP, Reaktor, Sonix works, Metasynth, Resolume ...
_J'utilise Plant since June 2007, what I like most is to use it on stage! the freedom to connect what we want or we want to set up both the audio tracks, as for the option modules ... the dreaded "midi ch = track number" that can move or copy a patch, while keeping the MIDI assignments
Total modularity, in short, instinctive and ease of patching ...
many convenient features like a smart tap tempo, tempo and x2 / 2 assignable MIDI or computer keyboard, its frequency detectors and tempo, its collection of ready-made effects, treatments FFT, the quality of its perfect, its independent and swing tempo track, the total management of the MIDI protocol, which allows a very extensive use of exclusive or filtering systems, managing clock etc. ... to the outside world ...
the least being on my satisfaction almost complete, I expressed to Sensomusic, and thanks to the comments of all users, improves plant very quickly.
(The Syntesi Audible is not yet fully developed, and samplers oscillators could provide wonderful if we could couple the loop mode and noon. To assign keys to the selection of patches, which currently is with the arrows on the keyboard of the computer, or mouse.)
a next step can be, Usine4? ) B-)
