If by host you mean program I’m using, I am using FL Studio 7. I tried it again by starting a new project and it worked. :D
I just hope it will work after I save a new project

hey there! ,, with the FLSTUDIO 7.0 problem its something to do with fruity wrapper,, im not sure exactly but im having a good look into this,,,, cos in fruity 7 you cant have too many strings open other wise they all screw up

Luke AKA Elro
Luke AKA Elro

ok when trying to replace the strings VST in FL 7.0 ,, i get the error message
ACCESS VIOLATION AT ADDRESS 064F4A66 IN MODULE ‘AF_CHORUS.SEP’. WRITE OF ADDRESS 00000008

IF ANYONE KNOW WHAT THAT IS JUST YELL :D

Luke AKA Elro
Luke AKA Elro

only success im having at this is by creating multiple version of the DSK Strings.dll and the DSK strings folder. maybe as a suggestion that the DSK strings work more as a sampler ,,, so it has a small .dll file while only using a single .wav file,,, this would be beneficial cos its only loading what it needs,, instead of the whole 30mg .dll ?? or you could make one main .dll ,, and have different modes so it can resample the Brass sounds as well as strings, b3x, and elektric keys??? please dont critique my ideas,,, as i… Read more »

I think the link for download the DSK Strings v1.0 is missing, please take a look on it (it doesn’t take to any kind of download, instead of that, it redirects to another review)

My host DAW is Fruity Loops 7 and I’ve been using the computer’s own QWERTY keyboard to play music. Now I’ve got a MIDI-to-USB converter and a proper ‘piano’ keyboard, but I can’t seem to get this to work. Am I missing something here? I don’t know the first thing about MIDI. Cheers, Mick.

How do you have it connected? Did you read the Help File? Do you still need help?

The ‘piano’ keyboard (made by CREATIVE) has a MIDI out connection, which I plug into the USB of my computer via a MIDI-to-USB converter lead. Not seen any HELP files and CREATIVE say they can’t help – can anybody? Cheers, Mick W.

mick white

Many Thanks! The CREATIVE keyboard isn’t powered (no batteries or mains!) but I will certainly try your suggestions. Thanks again, Mick W.

experiencing popping while playing strings. any suggestions? thanx

I’ve played the DSK strings in both Fruity Loops 3 and 7 – for some reason the ‘noise’ is worse in FL 3! In fact, DSK strings, brass and keys are all noisier in FL 3 – some other VSTis are the same in FL 3. Possibly an amp-to-amp overload so if you can, turn the volume down on your VSTi first! Also, the headphone output on my computer is noisy and not good enough to record from, so next is a USB output interface. Cheers, Mick W.

Is the download actually there? I’ve been “downloading” it for about half an hour, still on 0%?

Luke AKA Elro thanks for the tip but I tried with the Dsk electrik and unfortunately it does help at all…I’m trying to take out the song as mp3 and cant because of that information:

“ACCESS VIOLATION AT ADDRESS 064F4A66 IN MODULE ‘AF_CHORUS.SEP’. WRITE OF ADDRESS 00000008”
If anyone can help pls I’ll appreciate.

how to install dsk strings into FL studio 5 that i’m using? how does it functioning actually??

The Minstrel

This is by far the best string VST I’ve heard in a long time. So customisable and effective, and a good sounding string VST is never frowned upon!

I’m using Cubase SX3 and have had no problems with it whatsoever.

To all of you using this with Fruity Loops, FLS is well known to have problems with VST’s of all shapes and sizes. You’re probably better off using Soundfonts with FLS.

To Charlie: are you using Windows Firewall on your system? If so, check the ZIP file: right-click on it and select “Properties.” Near the bottom, it might say if the file is blocked because it came from another computer (ie. a download). It’s up to you to then click on the “Unblock” button, then press “OK.” Afterward, try to unzip DSK Strings into your preferred location on the hard drive.

Hi, I am using FLStudio 6 and used this VST plugin. The sound is pretty decent and I like it. But there are some issues. I have 3 tracks of DSK Strings and one of them playing different notes in succession (not very fast). Now when I play them together, the tempo slows down and it generates noises when it plays the successive notes. This is a show stopper for me. I cannot use just 1 track of strings. Any workaround? When does DSK plan to fix it?

Wish “Matt” had come back and commented. I’m having the same problem, as is another guy I know. I’ve written a song using this plugin, and it won’t export to an mp3, even though all other sounds (and many other songs) work fine. Using FL8. Won’t export to OGG either.

Also, when I open the song in FL8, the plugin sounds won’t load and play, like all other sounds. Anyone else have this issue?

I like the strings VST here, it is very nice sounding. I have just one problem, which is fairly common. I can’t render it as an MP3. Ive got Acid Pro 6.0[f i think]. I am guessing it deals with the routing, as I have the stereo out versions of the acoustic and machine drum samplers, both work fine. I even try to be crafty and open a hardware track while recording, and play the string samples through a undistorted synth, but as soon as I go to record, the VSTs stop sending MIDI. Anyone have Acid Pro or know… Read more »

I am having a problem with SaxophoneZ, Brass and ElectriK_GuitarZ are crashing Cubase Studio 4. It may be that it is happening because I am running 64bit Windows.

Can I get any suggestions here? Saxaphone and brass sounded good while they were working.

After that they kept crashing the program until I removed them from the VST directory.

Sorry the above comment should have said Windows 7 beta 64bit

To all of those who are haveing the “AF_CHORUS.SEP” problem: Go to the vst file where you’ve put your dsk vst and copy and glue a new one on the same folder. This will generate a copy (obsviously). Now just add that copy to your fl and use only one instrument per copy. Otherwise, you won’t be able to render your file to mp3. So the trick is always to make a copy for every new instrument you’re putting in the song.

Thanks for great VST instruments. And thanks Julio for the “AF_CHORUS.SEP”-fix.

When I try to load either DSK Strings I get this message:

VST Mixer Warnings
===============================

This mixer configuration expected “DSK Strings” to have Output 1: Stereo,
-> The instrument currently has Output 1: Mono, Output 2: Mono,
-> The instrument channel will be silent.
===============================

Cubase LE4 only allows a stereo output from VST instruments. is there is any way to get the default output routing to just a single stereo output?

Thanks

God, you have no idea how much this has fucked me up on my latest project. I wanted a simple easy to use VST, and thought I’d gotten it to finally work. Now it’s crashing constantly and it won’t even prerender a track. I lost a whole day’s work because of this plugin.

Ronnie
Ronnie

Hey Leigh, sorry to hear you’ve experienced problems with the plugin. Not sure what host you are using but what about just (re)moving the plug-in .dll from your plugins folder and then load your project?

Soundwarrior
Soundwarrior

The problem with this plugin is that if you load 2 instances of it and then unload them -> it crashes. We are bulletproofing this for Mixcraft 6 b183, not out yet at the time of this posting. ;)

I use DSK Strings in LMMS on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. I love the plugin except for popping/crackling sound, e.g. when I have several, short, repeating notes.. Any suggestions about how to fix this?

Doesn’t seem to work. Missing a lot of .sem files and will not play anything on Vita 2. Only downloads the .dll file.

It’s for 32-bit Windows PC only.
