Hello,

I bought Bliss today and played around with the VSTi sampling function and have the following problems:

Bliss names the pitches of the samples once with bind line (-) and once without, here an example:

Piano - C-4 000 127

Piano - D-4 000 127

Piano - E-4 000 127

and then:

Piano - F4 000 127

Piano - G4 000 127

Piano - A4 000 127

If I then save the samples as a WAV file and want to load them into another sampler, the automatic sorting function does not recognize the files correctly.

Is this possibly a bug?

Second, when I save programs as SFZ, Bliss closes automatically. The SFZ file is then saved but I can no longer load it.

Hello, thanks for purchasing Bliss!

Yes, the WAV file export with pitch and velocity will be added on Bliss 1.8.

Regarding SFZ export, something like that shouldn't happen. Are you using the standalone or the plugin version?

This is the infamous sfz export bug, i have been complaining for quite some time. So i see, i am not the only one.
It happens quite regularly. Saving in the bliss-internal format works.

Could it be. The thing with the SFZ export crash is that it does happen at random. Meanwhile it can crash in some occasions, it won't in others, so it's a hard thing to trace down.

Thanks for the quick answer.

The crash always happens with both the standalone and plugin versions.

Can you send the file causing the crash and the logs from Documents > discoDSP > Bliss to contactus@discodsp.com ? If the files are big, using something like Google Drive to host them is appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

I sent the logfile.

Unfortunately I have already deleted the sample data, because it was only for testing.

Got it, thanks. If possible, replicating the sample data would be helpful to trace down the issue.

Hello,

I did another longer sample session and now the SFZ conversion works without crashes. No matter if with the standalone or VSTi version. I don't know what caused the error, very strange. I still have a feature request, could you include a virtual keyboard in a future version for select the key and note ranges above it?

And thank you for your help.

Happy to know there were no more crashes, but still investigating what's going on. Maybe it's related to memory allocation under certain circumstances. Too bad it can't be 100% replicated.

Yes, the note range process is a bit cumbersome right now and a better way to select is planned.

That sounds nice, thank you.

I just purchased Bliss because of the VSTi sampling and SFZ export! And it crashes everytime, both with WIN32/64 standalones and 16/24bit SFZ. With that feature not working my purchase of Bliss was money down the drain... :cry:

Thanks for your purchase. Bliss shoundn't crash sampling a VSTi. Could you say which one is? Please send your system details (DAW/OS) and crashlog from Documents > discoDSP > Bliss folder to contactus@discodsp.com so I can take a better look at it.
