  1. I commend these folks for implementing something that falls under the category of “common sense” I’ve been missing this setup since the days of Jeskola Buzz. Reason came close to fufilling my dreams minus the lack of VST support. Kudos

      1. I mean, I’ve never used this software so I can’t say for sure but plogue does all this and supports AU, which makes it especially handy for us PT users who covet VST and AU plugs

  2. My first thought was “What a well-considered, practical utility.” It just plain smells right. I can easily see it saving a few asses.

    My second thought was “How many separate devices can you include before it begins to look like a power-line juncture in India, just a knotted mass of insanely layered lines?” More to the point, unless you are writing for an actual orchestra or making a Pink Floyd-level album, you have no need for 96 tracks. Synth tracks in particular fill the spectrum quickly. Its an amusing part of my work that I often end up removing segments because in my zeal, I maded mud pie. I have to trim a bit to recover the core clarity. The distinctions and dynamics get lost in the pile if you let the actual building process get away from you.

    So the issue isn’t whether or not Rack Performer is valid and well-appointed; its both. Its simply one of having an incisive ear and not letting Gear Dazzle interfere with getting the best final mix. I think RP will tempt some people to do too much at once, but the more focused users could turn it into a new T.O.N.T.O.

  3. This is another app that would really benefit from a well-done demo video.

    It looks really interesting, but it’s difficult to get a good feel for what it does from the features and specs!

  4. Im surprised no one mentioned EnergyXT or Numerology. I dig them both so Im open to this. I’m always looking for a better modular environment. This does look like a reworked Numerology, though Im down to give it a whirl. I gotta point out though, this guy wont be able to keep his head above water once AudioGL hits the market if he doesnt step it up a bit and give it something interesting.

  5. I must be missing something. This does not seem to offer anything new over any number of other products.

    I suppose, if you do not already have the capability, this is as good a place to start as some of the other choices.
