    8dio is actually having a sale!

    So, right now it is possible to get both anthology strings and Epic Percussion Ensemble bundle for $128. This does sound like a pretty damn crazy deal even though i already own the frame drums (which i love). I am actually in need of a dedicated string library, does anybody actually use...

    Embertone Walker D Lite vs Spitfire Orchestral Grand

    Of those three, i only have The Gentleman which i never really used. I've mostly been using the giant and the grandeur. I will try it out and maybe make a side by side comparison with the walker piano. I appreciate the advices on the spitfire piano!

    Embertone Walker D Lite vs Spitfire Orchestral Grand

    I really appreciate the, but sadly i have to prioritize a bit right now, and the spitfire bundle is above Noir. I will definitely keep it in mind though, i am pretty sure i can make do with the Embertones piano for now (it is only $10 after all) and then eventually get Noir next year at the...

    Embertone Walker D Lite vs Spitfire Orchestral Grand

    Seems like i will be getting the Embertone Grand and the Spitfire bundle in that case. Together they can probably replace the NI pianos i am currently using (except for Una Chorda of cause)

    Embertone Walker D Lite vs Spitfire Orchestral Grand

    Hi everyone, As the Black Friday offers are getting really serious and a poor student have limited funds i need a bit of guidance (and user demos). I will most likely be purchasing the Ton bundle from spitfire. It includes British Drama Toolkit which i have wanted for quite some time as i am a...

    Is Synthmaster worth it given everything else I own/use?

    I have pretty much the same synths as you, except omnisphere, Hive and Falcon, but do have both synthmaster 1 and 2. I haven't used either since starting out a couple of years ago, but just booted 1 up and ran through some presets and did some tweaking. I have to say, the presets are better and...

    Teaching a High School class about motifs/themes in Film music. Help me with examples!

    This seems interting! I already did the class, and everything went really well, + the students really seemed to engage in it, participated in the discussions and analyses and tried answering my questions, but hey, let's keep this going. Somebody else might stumble upon the thread in a similar...

    Century strings sale? Maybe?

    Thanks a lot! It is nice be able to exclude SStB from the list, i think it stands between Hollywood and Century Brass then. Both seems great, but there might be better legato in Century? I am not even sure that Hollywood Brass has real legato. Anyway, at the current deal at JRR shop, they are...

    Century strings sale? Maybe?

    How do you like century brass compared to other brass libraries? I've been toying with the idea of getting some libraries for each section instead of the current "All in One" packages i am using, and Century Brass seems like a pretty good choice for the brass part. Others i've considered are...

    Teaching a High School class about motifs/themes in Film music. Help me with examples!

    Don't worry, i didn't find it disrespectful in any way. I do mention Howard Shore as one of the usual ones in the original post, and will most likely be using the shire theme as an example of music used to describe thoughts and feelings that picture and dialogue alone can't! Let's be honest, i...

    Teaching a High School class about motifs/themes in Film music. Help me with examples!

    Holy shit, that's so good! I never actually watched the movie, but that's a huge amount of great themes. Has some of them already been established earlier in the movie? Because in that case i'll have to give it a watch and take some serious notes, that scene is just plain amazingly scored!

    Thanks a lot, i would love to put in the time myself and analyse all those movies, but sadly i won't have time to go that much in depth with them. Do you remember any specific places in those movies where the use of well established themes and/or motifs helps telling us more than the we can see...

    24 HOURS REMAIN: 67% off Palette Symphonic Sketchpad

    I am not sure how you can assume that everybody knows something on a forum where people come and go, some only read specific sections etc. I personally think that the only moral thing to do when you are getting paid for referring people to, or promote a product, is to mention it. In your case...

    It is like this with all the APD deals. Also, the link is a referral link, so yeah he is getting paid. I wish people included in their posts when it is sponsored/paid, and just be honest about using referral links, that would make it seem a bit more honest than the obvious over enthusiasm, even...

    I've Bought My Last String Library

    If you want some feedback on it (i think the blend works pretty well btw) the sustains still need a lot of modulation and expression work, this goes for both strings, woodwinds and brass. I also find it a bit mundane, you got some nice ideas, but give away too much from the start, and doesn't...

    NI e voucher paradox

    Yeah, i have never seen any E-Shop that bothers with this, and it is such a small thing that i really don't even see the problem. Hell, if it wasn't there people would probably be asking where they could add their vouchers, still not considering the actual terms on which it can be used.

    Orchestral Tools NKS offer 2019

    So, it seems that the Inspire series is regarded redundant if you already own Symphobia and/or albion one. I own symphobia 1+2, Albion One and Time Macro, and really like the OT sound which is why i initially considered Inspire, but i do think that i am already too covered in those. What i...

    Orchestral Tools NKS offer 2019

    Time Macro is totally another beast. Time Macro is focused on evolving and moving textures while Inspire is much more of a bread and butter library with your standard patches. Time Macro doesn't have any staccato patches but have some repetition patches, though these are not meant to be...

    Well, i wouldn't sell all three to get it, but one of them, most likely either Albion One or Symphobia as it is a lot like the same concept. For some reason i've just fallen in love with the OT sound, i have and love to use Time Makro, got it on release and it's found its way into a lot of...

    Orchestral Tools NKS offer 2019

    I am really interested in the in the inspire series too, and have considered selling my symphobia or the orchestra license to get it. Thing is, they are going quite a bit cheaper at the moment than i had hoped, so i can't be too competitive. Also, i probably shouldn't sell my the orchestra...

    Well, free except you need to buy a key if you don't have one. Which is fair, i can't complain about them giving away stuff, i am just not buying into anything that requires a physical dongle, though trying out their products could in best case have changed my mind.

    I am not sure how Albion One should relate to the BBC orchestra? They are pretty different products even though both are a "All in one" orchestra. Also, the pricepoint is way different.

    Why Zebra 2 is the best? That's why:

    The reason i really love it is that compared to Serum or Massive, even though it is a digital synth like them, it just sounds way more warm and organic with way less effort in my opinion. This patch is a pretty good example of that. Simply wonderful!
