"It all started last Thursday evening when I saw the 'Comparing PPG 2.2 & Hermann Seib PPG WAVESIM Software' videos on the MATRIXSYNTH website. I downloaded the VSTi from a somewhat confusing website and I tried in in Ableton Live. Very soon I came up with a 4 track sequence with 3 PPG voices (Buzz, Bells and Bass) and some CR78 drums. But at the end of the evening, when trying to save the session, Live hang. The next day I tried to recover the session, which worked. But trying to save the session made Live hang again. After some investigation I found out that the PPG VSTi caused the problem but I could not fix it. This evening I added 2 MIDI tracks for the Creamware MiniMax ASB (track 6 MIDI) and the Waldorf Q Keyboard (track 7 MIDI). I had to decide what to video; me playing the strings and solo or the Live screen. Sorry, but I choose the easiest way. What you see in the video are clips in Ableton Live which are pre-recorded in a loop. I added the strings on the Roland XP-80 and the solo on the Clavia Nord Lead 1. The strings and solo are both played live and not by Live.

The video and music is about 13 minutes long. You can download them from the video section of from my website."
