    A horrible post (sorry)

    Thanks for sharing and I am sorry. I can relate to that. Years ago we were driving home late at night; my wife was driving and I was resting, when suddenly a raccoon dog jumped out of the darkness and was hit by the car. I think it had damaged its spine and I had to end the suffering. I love...

    My first official 8dio Demo! (Intimate Studio Brass)

    I liked it a lot. I got the impression that you had something real to say - which isn't often the case for me ((imho) - in many ways shallow and superficial world we are currently living in)). It took me on a trip to somewhere and something. In this case I think I do not even want to know...

    Is Hans Zimmer overrated as a composer?

    Yep. Here in Finland the main celebration is today - on 24th. Merry Christmas everyone and have a Happy and Fulfilling New Year!

    Is Embertone updating their Intimate Strings?

    It's a season of bad jokes, so here we go again... Yes - heard that they are updating. The overhaul will be called "Very Intimate Strings". (Sorry [email protected] You rock!)

    Orchestral Tools "groundbreaking" announcements

    Maybe they'll quit selling libraries and start to manufacture heavy drilling machinery. "Groundbreaking" "...building the new" :grin:

    Sonokinetic 12 days of Christmas - Day 12 - Largo 50% OFF!!

    Having flu and fever and I was sleeping most of the day. Then noticed this and there were 500 copies left at that time. Managed to grab one without any problems. (Have the Strings and Brass too). Thank you Sonokinetic team and have a merry Christmas!

    Aaron Venture Infinite Brass - Update v1.2 is live!

    Yikes! I think that November should be renamed to Brassember from now on... :scout: The concept of your library is very interesting. Congratulations. Looking forward to a walkthrough.

    Orchestral Tools - Black Friday - 40% on Berlin Series Main Collections

    I remember reading from somewhere that it worked on a purchase of 599 euros (although OT says that the minimum is 600). Not sure though. I personally haven't tried; still have my voucher.

    Anyone else hate the "wheel" controls for pitch bend etc

    True true. Should know that because I got my first electric axe on my 9th birthday. :2thumbs: Even though my analysis of my pitch bending was faulty from the start, there is something when I'm using the wheel for pitch that does not sound right. I know it's a user error. Maybe has something to...

    Anyone else hate the "wheel" controls for pitch bend etc

    Thank you EvilDragon. I was planning to get a cheap controller with a joystick; just for the fun of playing sampled guitars, and some other solo instruments that need pitch bending. Not going to replace my other keyboards, and was planning to use it as an extra only when needed for those...

    Anyone else hate the "wheel" controls for pitch bend etc

    I have only keyboards with wheels, but prefer a joystick for pitch. For dynamics/modulation wheel is ok. I remember vividly the days when I had a brand new Korg Triton as a master keyboard - playing Jan Hammer -like synth guitars (with the joystick) like a madman. I guess it's time to buy a...

    Hall-of-fame samples (best from each library)

    "N" is an ancient library that makes an appearance once in every thousand years. It contains all the mysteries and answers of the universe (and the unknown parallel universes and multiverses). And it has the best legato that will ever be made. There is a dedicated thread about it. Seek 'N thou...

    Woodwind runs library, other than Berlin?

    Yes - you are right. It is full ensemble runs and sounds, so not suitable for your needs.

    Woodwind runs library, other than Berlin?

    Cinesamples Hollywoodwinds has that classic hollywood sound - if you are looking for that kind of thing. Don't know how it fits more classical pieces. It is quite inexpensive and it has been discounted often during the sales. It is quite old library, but the sound is very nice.

    Cinematic Studio Brass - upcoming release!

    I think it indeed is a very generous price, but it can generate more sales with the other products too. For instance I decided to buy the solo strings in addition to the brass. I have always liked the sound, but haven't jumped on the Cinematic Studio solo train. The pricing of the brass library...

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    Little offtopic. Sorry about that... Got an idea reading your post. A fun challenge: who creates the best (sounding) space with some chosen orchestral patch, using only close mics and reverbs. I think something valuable could be found in the process.

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    I like this more traditional approach to section sizes, and do not see it as a problem. If it does not sound big enough, you can layer other brass libraries (or synths), filter and pan them to your liking, while letting the CSB form the core sound and "skeletal structure" of the brass. The...

    Cinematic Studio Brass - upcoming release!

    "Dear mommy. Please send some money". Sounding great. As I already have CSS it seems (too) hard to resist.

    Customized CSS + CSSS Violins (For flow and cohesion)

    I experimented using this technique also with some ensemble and sections sounds. With other instruments I tried it it works ok, but with Berlin Inspire (strings) doesn't; by adding the transpose it kills the modwheel (dynamics, nothing happens after the transpose being added). It does not make...

    What do you guys think Metropolis Ark 4 will consist of?

    . A silent movie era version "at the edge of silence"? Including some special patches inspired by John Cage. (Sorry). I think you are right. And Mike is probably right too; there has been a choir in every MArk so far. The rest - have no idea.

    LOL - Just bought a violin (I've never played one before)

    This. I had so much fun today and I'm a hands-on type of person, so it really is a great experience. Did some composing (with libraries) afterwards and it felt like there was some new kind of inspiration in writing the brass parts. Also bought and old clarinet at the same occasion, but haven't...

    LOL - Just bought a violin (I've never played one before)

    I hear you. And good timing. I "played" trumpet for the first time today (bought an old (and cheap) one a while ago). Have never before played or even tested any brass instruments... :dancedance: During my practicing (Youtube is your friend) our cat came in from the rain and decided to want...

    12 Years Old. Twelve. There is hope for humanity.

    I respectfully disagree. I think the music she makes is something that the world needs - especially in this time of great global challenges. Some have stated that her harmonic language is not so developed, but to me her music is beautiful, and to me that is valuable. Vangelis stated in one...

    12 Years Old. Twelve. There is hope for humanity.

    What impressed me the most was the way she seems to love the music. I think she is great and there is certainly room for her in this world. Wish her all the best.

    12 Years Old. Twelve. There is hope for humanity.

    Good and bad jokes and opinions aside... Have you considered what you are gaining with your posts (about this subject)? My guess is that with posts like yours in this thread, some more acclaimed and skilled people will leave the forum. Can't blame them. In my opinion, one of the things that...

    New from Strezov Sampling: Afflatus Chapter - Part one: Strings

    I'm out too. Too much for my suffering wallet (already decided to buy it after watching the walkthroughs...) Congrats for a great sounding library. I really like the concept and the versatility, and hopefully am able to buy it some day.

    Eric Whitacre Choir

    I feel much the same way. Have liked many Whitacre's choir pieces a lot during the years, but felt a little empty after watching the walkthrough. I think I will give it a little time, but probably will eventually skip buying it. The library sounded very good. Congratulations to Spitfire Audio...

    Best edm vst synth 2018

    Another vote for VPS Avenger from here. It is ready for EDM, but also a great tool to sculpt other kinds of sounds. A lot of good drums (sets and sequences) are included.

    N

    N is already sticky; you can't get your hands off it. ;)
  43. FinGael

    N

    It sounds synthy, because it is a tribute to those marvelous sounding 80's Casio "synths". It also contains the same scripting that is available as hardware in some TI calculators, so it can't be THAT bad. But yeah, legatos could be better.
  44. FinGael

    N

    Heard that there is a different version coming as a crossgrade option. Unlike the original, it is suitable for all studio environments. It is called NSFW (N - Suitable For Work). It also expands the original sampleset by a whopping 16.4 MB, containing all-new samples from bells and whistles...

    Evolve Mutations - loops for hybrid music

    My two cents and a little bit different experience. I am not a dedicated trailer music producer, and only few days ago was checking out EM and EM2 for the first time. Have had them for ages, came with Komplete 10U, but I think I have never even opened them. I found especially some of the tonal...

    Best solo cello?

    Yes. To be honest I have not been a fan of their modelled strings; the intonation seems nice, but there is something in the timbre and vibrato that make the sound in some way synthetic to my ear. Have to add, that I am not that experienced with strings, and that goes to both samples and real...
