Quick support request. Winzip gave some errors, but extracted and ran okay. I saw that my file size was incorrect per the manual. So I tried Winrar. It isn't extracting the right amount, per the manual, which says I should have a little over 5 gigs. The folder I get is about 4.7 gigs. My part 3, which per the manual should be more than a Gig, is actually much less, somewhere around .87 of a gig. When I go to "My Account" and try and download it, it consistently comes up with that size. Can you confirm or deny (that the purported size in the manual (5.2 gigs) is incorrect or correct?. BTW I have 91 folders (including root), and 3608 files. Is my Evolution folder still missing some files then?
Also, have you guys ever hooked up something like Leap Motion, via Geico, to the x-y controllers in Evolution?
Another question, will there be a way to drag/drop not just MIDI files, but wave files of sequences, including fx graph results, into the DAW?
One more. In Nerve there is this (and a similar feature in Geist with respect to Choke groups - from the Nerve Manual:
"You will also notice there are assignments with an asterisk ('*'). This indicates that this pad should cut pads with the same group number, but not itself get cut by those pads."
AFAIK this is not a completely uncommon desire, for instance you have an fx you are using like an open hi hats - you want that fx to be choked immediately by another fx that is being used like the closed hi hat. But you don't want the long-ringing open hi hat to keep the closed hi hat pattern from starting up again - you're not trying to copy real-world behavior, you're trying to create electronic music. And If you didn't have that option as in Nerve and Geist, and your open hat fx rings for a long time, you need to plan for it, or use extra kit pieces for it. In those programs sometimes it can make more sense to me not make the open hats close the "closed hats" - I know it sounds unimportant.
Also, importantly, do you know if Kontakt snapshots supports adding folders below the main level listed in the Evolution manual? If not it will be difficult to organize user work within Kontakt - I will need to migrate stuff into and out of the main folder as I use it. No biggie I guess, but you would think Kontakt would have worked that out. I'm using the latest Kontakt 5 full version. And yes, after I created a test sub-folder, I shut down Kontakt and even my DAW, and went back in, and still no sub folder shows up.
Peace & Prosperity.
