I have been giving AM a try for the 3rd time.
I must say I am impressed with the added flexibility compared to the very old versions I tried. This is a program for me and most likely will buy it soon; however, I have a few questions.
I have a decently powerful PC computer: w7 64, i7 760, 12GB Mushkin Redline, Nvidia 9800GT. I am very surprised that a few instances of plugins can produced harsh digital noise, and the only fix here is to raise the samples per buffer (increase latency), which leads me to believe that AM does not support multicore systems. Is that right?
2. Any plans to port it to a VST version? The more I see it's structure, the more adequate it seems to be to port it to a VST version. That would be very cool.
3. MIDI outs? Any plans on this?
4. MIDI filters? Any plans? This would be especially usefull for VSTs with multi-channel MIDI outputs. Probably a MIDI filter contraption could be useful, by which you can filter out certain MIDI channels. That way, for one example, Maschine could control up to 16 other VST instruments.
I know those are like feature requests, so don't pay too much attention if they don't seem realistic. What concerns me the most is the "crackling" sound when using AM at low latencies. I am very surprised about this.
