    If you could only use 5 sample libraries?

    There are songs where I use five sample libraries / plugin instruments only. But on other songs I use different five. Doesn't make sense to me to make variations of the same thing again and again.

    EXS24 scripter ideas

    The Studio Horns and Studio Strings that came with Logic 10.4 (or was it 10.3?) have legato. Annoyingly the used scripts are hidden.

    Epic String Slide Lib?

    Sustains + Pich bend? I you double a few libraries and use different pitch bend curves it works absolutely fine.

    Starting with NI Symphony Series

    My advice: Start with smaller sections (like strings only). Get a score and a recording. Import the audio into Logic and adjust the tempo (including tempo changes) so that the click is in sync to the recording. Now try to recreate the track. Read the score, listen A/B to the original. Start with...

    Junkie XL Brass?

    Strings = warm colours: Vl1 Vl2 Vla orange from light to dark, celli red, basses brown like the earth. Brass = horns cyan, trumpets green, trombones and tuba dark blue Winds = flutes light blue, oboes yellow, clarinets brown, bassoons purple Melodic Perc = metal blue, wood brown, harp yellow...

    Infinite Series (Aaron Venture) thread

    Being a flute player myself I don‘t have a problem with the sustained tone texture of the Infinite flute. But the attack isn‘t flute like at all. It sounds a bit like a mix of Jan Hammers solo synth (filtered square wave flute) and a flugelhorny attack. As mentioned here before the Audiomodeling...

    Most reliable and convenient ways to back-up your libraries?

    I have 10 SSDs between 1 and 2 TB each. Cloud storage would become really expensive that way. Especially as I could redownload a lot of libraries from the developer directly for free. I have a raid tower with 8 HDDs for backup. When I add new libraries I just copy them over. I‘m thinking about...

    Great to hear about the new trumpets. The update of the horns was really a night and day improvement! They sound beautiful now and I love the playability!

    OSX - Previous Versions on new hardware

    Works only if the Mac hardware accepts installing Mojave. I doubt the coming MacPro will do.

    OSX - Previous Versions on new hardware

    The current iMac was released in Mojave times and that‘s probably the reason you can still load 10.14 As far as I know no Mac can load an OS older than the release date of that model. So I don‘t think the new MacPro will load anything than Catalina.

    Mac users-what’s your setup?

    MacPro2013 VaderHelmet, 8core 3.5 GHz, 64GB, 2x Blackmagic with SSDs, external Raid Tower with 8 HDs for backup. For the “work“ it‘s always enough. For fun or bigger templates I have a PC slave (6core i7 with 64GB, Win7) but I rarely use it, mainly because I‘m such a Windows noob. I can either...

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    Yepp, but it doesn’t make sense to my. Not Babylons fault for sure. Why are they using different key switches with one library? Needs to reload the complete template to get the original key switches back.

    Do you have the Babylonwaves Articulation Sets for Logic? Would make sense to make them compatible too.

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    I have some synths and CC controller connected to Logic. Some faders are used for other plugins like the Novation Peak for use with Omnisphere etc. The Spitfire Plugin has all mic position faders pre-assigned to CC's. I started to unlearn them to avoid unwanted movement of my controllers to mess...

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    The marcatos are one shots. They play to the end of the sample by default. It can be changed in the settings to "Timed". Has to be done in the complete template.

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    I'm not sure about the key switches. Babylonwaves added articulation sets for BBCSO recently. But they don't work with this template without issues. I really don't know why. When I load a default First Violins patch with all articulations the corresponding articulation set from Babylonwaves...

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    The Spitfire instrument icons are nice but they don't help a lot. No difference between piccolo and concert flute and between clarinet and bass clarinet. A single icon for the flutes or clarinets can be found in Logics default icons. And I already use additional icons. When I opened the template...

    BBCSO - Spitfire Logic Template

    First of all I will remove the "BBCSO" out of the instrument names. Saves a lot of space on the left for the track headers. In my screen sets i just see "BBCSO 1st..." instead of "BBCSO 1st Violin Leader Legato". I will change it to "VL1 Lead leg".

    I'm trying to work with the Spitfire Hybrid template by Christian Henson and Jake Jackson. It's a great starting point and a lot of work is already done. But there are also a lot of things I want to customize to my needs - without destroying the template. What I want to keep for sure is the...

    Spitfire Audio “This is London Calling” - BBC Symphony Orchestra

    In Logic the SCS and SSS performance legatos use about 2/3 more CPU than the BBCSO legatos which have more or less the same features. I‘m really happy with the efficiency of the Spitfire player and glad that it isn‘t a Kontakt library.

    Spitfire Audio “This is London Calling” - BBC Symphony Orchestra

    I really like the legato patches. The legato is not as smooth as CSS but it‘s a patch that might work on 80% of my needs. It‘s very playable and makes a lot of key switches simply redundant. Even repeated shorts are possible.

    Spitfire Audio “This is London Calling” - BBC Symphony Orchestra

    Itˋs on all short patches I tried when loading the „hybrid keyswitch“ template. I didnˋt try everything but the flute tenutos and marcatos are defenitely one shots and donˋt react to note off.

    Spitfire Audio “This is London Calling” - BBC Symphony Orchestra

    In the walkthrough videos Paul mentioned the tenuto and marcato articulations are playable in length... so when you release the key they stop playing. That doesn't happen here. All shorts are one shot samples and ring out to the end. Dialing with the release time doesn't change that. Is there a...

    BBC Fever and the Reality of Existing Libraries

    We will see. I the collaborations I was involved and when it comes to orchestral things nobody asked "what strings did you use". There had to be additional orchestra and often it was replaced by a real one. So it's mainly to get through the composition and acceptance process. Alone at home on my...

    BBC Fever and the Reality of Existing Libraries

    I understand this collaboration thing. I share a lot of song files in collaborations. If all users use the same libraries (what happens rarely) in Kontakt, the song will not simply load. Kontakt asks for every sample location on another system. You have to click "search Spotlight" (on Mac) for...

    First of all: landscaping is great. Make the place where you live the best you can. Do we need BBCSO? Well, I know people who survive completely without any sample library. Some of them are even musicians. So probably nobody needs it. But maybe itˋt fun to play with, useful in mockup world...
