I always stem like groups (strings high, strings low, brass high, etc). You can still do this if you load the specific instruments. I also have an "orch" stem for ensemble patches that I cannot seperate. Is this what you are asking?Practical question:
How do you route the Time Orchestra patches in your template? I mean to which (sub)stems?
Actually I meant just the patches under the "01. Time Orchestra" folder (and 02. Altered Time). I should have been more specific.I always stem like groups (strings high, strings low, brass high, etc). You can still do this if you load the specific instruments.

It’s easy. If you don’t need it now, and you can wait a year to see if it’s lower, you certainly don’t need to rush to buy it.Wondering what would be the best bet as to when to buy this. I see NI is having a sale again. People thought the former sale was a one time thing - and it appears it isn't.
So the sale now has Time MACRO, a year after it's out, for 50%. Also ARK 4 for 50% off - but when bundled together with another ark it's 63% off.
This makes me wonder whether in a year's time we'll see another OT/NI sale, offering Time Macro & Micro for 63% off, making it worthwhile to wait. But then again they might not, and now is the best price available.

I remember seeing that. It doesn't bother me as you have to play the note long enough to get the glitch. I don't usually hold them that long and I rarely use the TM patches. I was just agreeing with the poster above. But I'm glad you responded as I couldn't remember the reason why.
thank you, Tobias.Hi folks,
a few people have reached out because of crackling loops in the TM patches, so I thought I'd just post here what I replied via email
The TM patches use Kontakt's Time Machine algorithm.
They are intended to be used when you need to adjust the sample length and should only be used when you actually need that functionality.
One one the drawbacks of these patches is that Kontakt has a fair bit of Time Machine issues, including sometimes messing up the sound output. Unfortunately Kontakt does not allow crossfades when TM is used, which is what leads to those clicks and pops. You will find that the Single Articulation patches do not have clicking loops.
We hope NI will solve these (and other) issues in due course, but until then we prefer to provide TM patches for situations where their functionality is needed and live with the clicking loops, as in most cases, you can simply use the regular Single Articulation patches - and it rarely makes sense to use the TM patches for looping articulations anyway.
