    OK Pro Orchestrators with 2000-Track Templates: What Audio Interfaces Do You Use?

    I've been eyeing RME for a few years now, but hadn't seen it on the payment plan before. That was an insta-buy for me. Thanks! Glad I saw this.

    Sonokinetic 12 DOC Day 2

    Its always been the 2nd day. 8 am PST for me. Gotten them all because I set an alarm on my phone 5 minutes before. And I got 904. That said, they pay NI for serial numbers for each freebie they give out. Its ot a full Kontakt only library. So this costs a good amount of money for them to do...

    Sonokinetic 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 - New Release Modal Runs - intro discount!

    Did @TigerTheFrog get one? He does all that work and always seems to miss this sale.

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    The list a few pages back. Someone got a picture of the days and was able to figure out most of them. It may change, but it should be pretty close.

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    It looks like the claire bundle will be on sale (or free with purchase) so you may want to wait.

    Bottles are great. I like the Seahorse as well.

    Sonokinetic 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 - New Release Modal Runs - intro discount!

    DaCapo has the same space as their other libraries, making it very blendable with the phrase libraries. I'd buy it but I already have it. Great deal though.

    Imperfect samples - Steinway

    Most of my libraries are only in tree view because they don't pay (and charge for) the extra amount to get a NI license. If you like pianos, you will eventually hear about Embertone's Walker. I don't have my computer open to double check, but a Kontakt library has a basic setup that is...

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    This is the thing with 8Dio. It will eventually be cheaper and more expensive. You just need to wait for the price that you feel comfortable paying. Or if you need it now, pay the price and be happy with what you got. If you buy enough, it all evens out in the end.

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    That would be good. :) I was being mostly sarcastic, though you never know what people will like in the future. I could not have imagined that disco would ever come back. But well... There are actually some decent guitar VI's out there now. I love UJamm's stuff. It's actually easy to make...

    Imperfect samples - Steinway

    I didn't have any problem with it. Maybe redownload? And make sure it is all in the folder properly. There's a standard setup for Kontakt libraries. It is not a player library so it will not show up in the library tab. I don't know why this is a big deal for you. I have a lot of these...

    Upgrading from Windows 7 to 10

    Most licenses are linked to the machine code which should not change with an upgrade. The benefit of iLok and similar external licensors is that you don't have to authorize your machine. However, I have one or two programs that require me to get a new authorizations every time I've changed...

    Upgrading from Windows 7 to 10

    So, generally, if you are just going to known sites you are pretty safe not upgrading, as long as you only connect to go to those sites. The problem is, if it is online all the time and connected to you network, there is the potential someone could get into all your computers through it.

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    At some point, people listening to music will start liking fake instruments better than real. Then, slowly, real instruments will disappear and all we will have is the progressive metal guitar and it will be perfect. So buy it now in anticipation of that great day. *I'd insert a sarcastic...

    What are your favorite cinematic brass and woodwind libraries?

    I kind of like Sonokinetic's Orchestral Woodwinds. They have also been on sale for a really good price during the last 2 holiday sales. They are 3 instrument ensembles with a good amount of articulations. Only the four main instruments though. But they have a really good sound. Otherwise...

    Well so far no excitement for me. I've pretty much got these all from previous 8dio sales. I don't have Century Brass or AGE. Oh well, guess I can save some money. :)

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    They are known for programming errors. I own something like 12 copies (serial numbers) of hybrid tools synphony or whatever it's called. Some glitch in the system. I've gotten the freebie without spending the required amount and had to request the freebie once when I did, but didn't get it...

    Welcome to 8Dio's Holiday Sonic Advent(ure) Day 4!

    If you don't already have the 8dioboe, it is a no-brainer at $8. So it looks like every other day is a flash sale and the other will be free with purchase. Plan accordingly. :)

    8dio is actually having a sale!

    They must be doing it differently this year. Last year the advent item was free with purchase of $98. Great deal. Except trying to find things for $98 resulted in buying multiple versions of The Bottle or Seahorse. You couldn't just buy it. Should be interesting to see if you buy it, do you...

    Joshua Bell *Essential* ????

    It's one of those programs where I'd like the Essentials for my laptop and the full version for my desktop. :) Just wish I bought Essentials first rather than the full at $139. Only because for about $20 more I could have had both.

    Joshua Bell *Essential* ????

    I'm guessing the Essentials takes less RAM in a project which can be great if you have limited RAM and don't need the extra articulations on a project.

    I think this year, there won't be much for me to purchase. I think I have pretty much all these items from previous sales. Great deals though.

    What Did You Buy on Black Friday That You Never Heard of Before?

    Yes, there are spots for pre plugins, main plugins and post plugins, which could be fun to experiment with. They rarely have sales on it though.

    What Did You Buy on Black Friday That You Never Heard of Before?

    Much better deal then. I didn't pay full price, but still more than $30. Bought it more for use with ProTools, but end up using it to test out new plugins. :)

    What Did You Buy on Black Friday That You Never Heard of Before?

    I think Comet was the only one I'd never heard of before the sale. Everything else I got I had heard of but other sale stuff got in the way. Someone did say it was a disappointing BF, but I used the lack of major sales I was expecting (OT) to spend money where I wasn't expecting (JB violin)...

    Pain to set up the vélocity on master keyboard PLEASE HELP !!!

    I have this problem as well and do not know how to fix it. It happens mostly with Kontakt libraries but it isn’t consistent. Some libraries play at the level I expect. Most don’t. I’m on an inexpensive Novation keyboard. I just manually adjust the volume/modulation as needed. Sorry, not...

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

    There were a couple of collections that were a good price - comparable to the wishlist sale. As long as they spent money on that, they probably weren't really buying something they wouldn't have bought eventually. Me, those strings cost me about $17 - the difference between the discount I paid...

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

    I got it for Black Friday and I really don't care if it is exclusive. If they decide to give it to people who pre-ordered BBCSO, I don't have a problem.

    Sonokinetic 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 - New Release Modal Runs - intro discount!

    Generally, there is not a limit on the items available. Just that, for the last 3 years, they gave away a set amount of the Ostinato series for free. It was a very generous number, especially the last two years.

    Tiger The Frog's Alphabetical List of November 2019 Sales

    Zinio will add to your subscription or at least, the new one won't start until the old one is done. Pocket will run concurrently - as in you will be able to access 2 copies of each issue. Really sucks and I quit using Pocket after I found that out.

    8Dio Download Crisis averted

    I usually do the manual download and use 7zip. On a PC. Works almost every time. Once in a while I will get an error message. 7zip tells me usually what file had the problem and I will redownload it. Maybe not as easy as the 8dio downloader, but I have less problems.

    Joshua Bell *Essential* ????

    With the full version on sale at $139, which would be better to get? I'm still new to this and manipulating strings to sound good. I was thinking about getting something else, but frankly when the play-through on the their website sounds like an accordian, so I know I can't make it sound...

    Why Does Waves Keep Harassing Me?

    You're right. It shouldn't affect the older plugins if it won't let you manage them from the same place. That is messed up.

    Why Does Waves Keep Harassing Me?

    Truthfully, as a PC user, I rarely WUP. I usually just upgrade for a whole lot less. Though once you get to Mercury, you are mostly stuck. And? Version 9 will still work fine. If you do decide you need to WUP, do it through everypugin.com - it will always be cheaper than through Waves.

    Why Does Waves Keep Harassing Me?

    It's not an extortion plan, it's something wrong in Waves Central. I've found when you need to install a new plugin, don't forget to check everything you own, or it will uninstall what you don't check and just install what you do. Though I did think they fixed this.

    Seventh Heaven Pro or EW Spaces 2?

    This is my problem. I could get SH standard now or go over my budget and get the pro version. I'm worried that the 30 presets would be just okay and I would regret not getting the others. Can you add more presets to the standard? I don't really need the additional controls. And somewhere...

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

    Looking at others who reported the same problem, they either had to redownload or have Spitfire support troubleshoot it. I'd probably go with the Spitfire Support first. Redownloading seemed to only help some of the time.
