  • Yes, @tk32 is and I think it is very close to first draft!

  • edited February 10

    @olivegoose - Yep - it's me :)

    I'm working flat out - but making great progress - I'll be posting news here on AudioBus as soon as it's ready

    I've set myself a deadline that I have to finish in February - and 'hopefully' before the end of month!

  • I'm so excited!
    Can't wait : )

  • edited February 10

    @olivegoose - I’m glad you’re excited. Hope I can live up to your expectations :)

    Out of interest... which number (above) best represents you?

    That is a confusing thingie :)

    I am def not new to iOS nor to BM3 but I am in the market for a fairy godmother full of ah-ha moments to get me where BM3 should be able to take me but hasn't quite so far etc.

  • You sound like a well-travelled and experienced 5 to me then, @JohnnyGoodyear :)

    You’re right though, the diagram doesn’t cover every possible type

  • I’m a 5 (been with BM3 since launch day, small kine ableton and logic before that) and I’m beyond stoked for this book!

  • Thanks @Gaia.Tree

    For anyone who’s been using BM3 for a while but still struggling with some of the details..

    I’d call these users 5++ :)

    Should be good! Looking forward.

  • I have to say @tk32 is one of the most active members on the Intua forum and has always been super helpful with getting others up to speed or to figure out better ways to do things in BM3. I’m confident that his experience with the product and the excellent communication on the forum (and probably discord I haven’t been on there) has been a huge influence on the book. I would encourage anybody that uses BM3 to head over there instead of only relying on Audiobus forum for information. Not dinging this forum, but you will get miles further by joining in the community there.

    @tk32 I am really looking forward to purchasing!!

  • Thanks @drez - really kind words. I appreciate it :)

    Cheeky bastards :)

    The venn diagram took about 5-10 mins in Affinity Designer

  • That is a BIG book for a getting started reference.
    So will there be an 8 volume encyclopedia for the rest?

  • edited February 10

    What can I say... it’s a wonderfully deep and powerful app.

    The book is as long as it needs to be in order to teach everyone enough to become proficient and self-sufficient users. I’m trying to leave no stone unturned.

    The only thing left for a future volume is continuing the list of workflow tricks (I call them ‘Recipes’)

    ...in hindsight, I may change the title. It’s become more than just a ‘Getting Started’ guide

  • ...now. Back to writing.

    I don’t want to be accused of wasting time on forums instead of working on the book !! :p

    Definitive Guide?

    How is this book coming along, @tk32?

    The lack of BM3 updates, or any news for that matter, is so sad. Your brightly colored book could bring back some life to this app! :)

    So glad you’re still excited about this @bleep - it’s taking longer than I first expected (this bit is my fault), and there have been a few delays which I couldn’t control - all of which will make more sense when the book is released.

    More info very soon...

  • Is this a hint that the long awaited update is finally about to drop?

    No.

    Do you know a way around this issue? Other than recording straight to audio.

    Sorry audio is out of sync, I tried reuploading but can't fix it.

    Hey @BroCoast

    The reason your recorded pattern is different to what you played is because you have RECORD QUANTISE set to strict 1/16th notes, and the rhythm of your pattern is faster than that (sounded like 1/16th triplets to my ears - “tat tat tat tat.. tat......”).

    Solution:
    Try re-recording the pattern with the QUANTISE NOTE ON set to OFF

  • edited May 17

    Just watched again, and I now see you turned off quantise at the start (not sure how I missed that the first time!)

    This is a bit strange - can you post a screenshot of of the resulting pattern?

    It certainly seems to be acting as if either:
    a) Quantise record is somehow ON (causing all recorded notes to adhere to 1/16 grid)
    b) Quantise OFF is somehow ON (causing delayed note offs to affect new note ons)
    c) Note repeats (1/16) are enabled on the pad you are playing

    Here’s my version of your video (same drum kit, same settings)

    I suspect it’s a malfunction with swing ‘on’ at 0% as t’s been shaky since day one...

  • Thanks @Samu

    I’ve never liked Global swing - it doesn’t work correctly as you say - but in truth I often forget to turn it OFF in my projects and never have the issues Brocoast demo’d. In fact, it’s enabled in my recreation above.

  • edited May 17

    Looks so wrong lol.

    It's so weird because I could do 10 takes, make sure global swing is off etc. and they turn out different each time. BM3 is meant to be (extremely) high resolution MIDI so with all quantize off this should not occur.

    It seems to quantize to swung 16ths.
