  • Which Host for SSD 4.0?

    Hello all,

    I took the plunge and ordered Steven Slate Drums 4.0 and am wondering which host would be best to use with it. I do not really need a full fledged DAW. I only intend to use it for playing real time Edrums. I have looked into VSTHost, Cantabile lite and Reaper (which is what SSD support recommended I use) I do want one that supports aftertouch and I believe all 3 of them do? Any help is appreciated!

    VSTHost will be pretty light on the PC, so, if your PC is limited in any way, that will be your best bet,
    Bidule is another.
    That's for playing with the VST alone.

    If you mean to record anything, than Reaper is an easy suggestion.

    Either way, it should provide you with loads of fun!

      If you have a Mac, it works great with GarageBand.

        Reaper works nice for me with SSD 4.0

          +1 with Reaper and has a very small footprint with ease of use.

            Thanks for the help guys! I downloaded Cantabile Lite and it's working fine with SSD. I've been messing around with it today and have most of the editing figured out. I'm using a VH-11 Hi Hat with an fd7 controller and am having a problem with closed articulations. It's not tight enough. Does anyone know how I would go about editing the closed articulations so the hats will sound tighter when being closed?

              In your module you have to set the CC on the hi hat to max 127. Select the trigger button on your module and then F3 (Hi Hat), then you will see the CC value and its probably set at 90, just scroll down and change it to 127. when you go back to playing just the TD-12 module you will need to change it back or it will be to tight sounding at full closed.

                Thanks yzf, that was the ticket! I'm really liking SSD 4 so far. A lot of the kits sound the same but the playability right out of the box is great
