    Orchestral Tools - Junkie XL Brass - Pre-Order Started!

    I would assume a sample drive sees less writes than any os drive, even if you save a new mix almost every day. I think my OS SSD that I now switched with my sample SSD had 17 TB lifetime writes after a couple years of use.

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    Happy to report I finally found a use for supercluster: as screechy background synth pad in a djent track. Still haven't tried most of what I bought this BF from them though :(.

    Reaper 6 is here!

    But it has a search function for them, that honestly is much more useful considering the wealth of settings it has imho.

    Something New. Teaser B.

    I was thinking it must be for the ipad app. The company is called "nextmidi", I'm not expecting samples at all to be part of the product. Didn't read the full thread though.

    Reaper 6 is here!

    I gave Reaper 6 a quick go and the new CC lane editing is cool. But I'm also a bit averse to change in software (I still use Winamp as mp3 player) and I don't think I'm prepared for that much change and customizing right now to make Reaper 6 feel "familiar" to me again. Right now I'm only...

    Reaper 6 is here!

    I don't think I've ever done a "proper" install of reaper, I always choose "portable" in the installer and have a number of parallel reaper folders. When I want to "update", I just copy one of them and install the new version over it. When I want to do a "fresh" install, I let the installer make...

    I sometime but rarely had the Kontakt GUI issue too, but I often have tracks auto record armed, so maybe that often silently fixed it without me noticing.

    Thanks guys, I'll check it out then! :) It is not a strictly "non commercial" license, thought it's worth pointing that out: "You may use the discounted license if: You are an individual, and REAPER is only for your personal use, or You are an individual or business using REAPER...

    Kontakt: best practices for creating orchestral templates

    When you open the template select "open with fx offline (recovery mode)". That should avoid the crash. Then one by one activate the plugins on a track, and then afterwards "freeze" the track. Go to "view -> track manager", select the track, click the button "freeze", and "freeze tracks to...

    Sitting On A Yoga Ball ?

    I noticed that while I do get less back pain from the new ikea chair that I bought, I do have more hand pain from neck issues recently. I examined how I sit on that chair and concluded that the lack of back support in the shoulder area that I find subjectively quite comfortable, leads to me...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    Avenger update now imposes Codemeter

    Another company I'll never buy from then. I wonder where the line needs to be drawn now for me. It used to be that it's enough of a check to see if something uses ilok or not, but it seems now I'll have to look for statements on a companies philosophy or what? Like what about iZotope? I use...

    Orchestral Tools - Junkie XL Brass - Pre-Order Started!

    If you only detune by 1 semi tone, you need libraries that sampled every semi tone and not stretched samples accross 2 semitones to cut their workload in half like most do. You need to detune by 2 semi tones to make sure you're getting different samples on some/most libraries. Trust your ears...

    Best orchestral libraries for “live playing” (least amount of post midi massaging necessary)? Or: how to remedy midi editor fatigue/creativity killing

    I was thinking about how much time I'm spending on templates vs composing recently too... this noteperformer thing looks and sounds pretty good to me. But there's no way to use it in Reaper, right? I can't read notation and the one notation tool that I'd be willing to try doesn't support...

    I don't know what the correct term for these is, but I have a "credit card" that doesn't give me any actual "credit".

    Can you recommend any subtle Percussion loops libraries suitable for Ambient music (like this)...?

    Maybe midi drum loops and an EDM drumkit for chillhouse or whatever the more relaxed genres may be called. If you have a name of the genre you can look for construction kits or maybe "machine expansions" from NI. Take a look around here...

    Maybe once you're logged in and have bought parts of the library when they allow that, it will show a list of licensend instruments that you bought and the rest appear listed under "not licensed".

    I never had any doubt that the midi Keyboard would fit into the compartment designed to fit a midi Keyboard into :).

    Maybe check out the CSB thread close after release and compare it to the MSB thread close after release. My impression was that the incentive for CSS owners to also buy CSB due to the loyalty discount worked fine, and on top of that, people seem just to like CSB more. I genuinely don't see the...

    You should doublecheck which products give you the loyalty discount, I don't think all do. I put a couple into the shopping basket to see and iirc CSSS doesn't work buts CSS does. Regarding the synthy strings, have you had a chance to try the Metropolis Ark 1 strings with their portato...

    Tiger The Frog's Alphabetical List of November 2019 Sales

    Probably. They have some of the most recommended products, why should they give them away for ~50% off? They simply don't need to I guess. Loyalty discounts are cooler and less manipulative than time-limited discounts anyway. Careful what you wish for I'd say.

    Still not what I meant :D. I just googled that and found a video where a doctor shoved an LED up his nose and talked about "intravenous lasers". Seemed wildly esoteric to me. I believe TENS can be applied for nerve pain, but not as a fix, only as a way to overload the nerve with signals that...

    Wich reverb for cinematic music ( Lexicon PCM , space II )

    You've made so many negative comments about this library in this thread, I could have sworn by now you want it to fail.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I thought you hated the sound of jxl? I find the selection you're undecided between weird. Seems to me like JXL and infinite are almost on opposing ends of what they're trying to do 0_o. I don't own any of these libs, but I'd go for infinite or CSB depending on how you like using them.

    Very nice! How do you get around the lack of non-phrase vowel patches for the soloists in Requiem light (or have I just missed something)? I don't recognize the phrases of that library that I find are too often a telltale sign of it being a fake choir, but you've handled this very well here imho.

    Ah, I remember seeing that thread. Very nice work on your desks! I think that design makes a lot of sense if you need to have that full sized midi keyboard. But I think it still wouldn't work well for me. It's possible that you feel the need for armrests because the keyboard and mouse are a...
