    Heavyocity Flash sale

    How do the Natural Forces compare to the Omnisphere 2 noisescapes and textures? I'm very tempted to get Natural Forces but I already have Omnisphere 2 so I'm wondering if it would just be more of the same thing.

    Noteperformer - New option to Rent-To-Own

    Interesting, so there's pretty much no reason to buy it outright then? Since as far as I'm aware they don't have any discounts on the full price.

    What's on your Spitfire Christmas Wish List?

    Question for anyone who can answer - do wishlist discounts work on upgrades to professional? The reason I'm asking is because I might go for HZP now, then upgrade to professional in 1 years time when the wishlist is here again (if I find lots of use for it).

    Spitfire HZ Percussion: Worth the Price?

    Oh wow that's an great subtle ethnic sound in that first video! I've got EthnoWorld for the ethnic sounds, but I've always found it slightly lacking, so this could be great for padding out those ethnic atmospheres.

    Spitfire HZ Percussion: Worth the Price?

    Do you find that the sounds are different enough that there are certain vibes that you can get from using HZP that you wouldn't be able to achieve with the MA series? Or is it more a case of having a more diverse timbral palette?

    Spitfire HZ Percussion: Worth the Price?

    Could someone advise about whether I’d get any value out of HZP pro at 40% off, if I already own the Heavyocity ensemble series, Damage, Met Ark 1/2/3? I’m at a stage where I’ve already spent a lot so I want to make sure I get value out of purchases.

    What's on your Spitfire Christmas Wish List?

    I have another potential redundancy issue with HZ percussion, in that I already have Heavyocity Damage, Ensemble series, Met Ark 1, 2, 3, Storm Drum 2, 3. I'm not sure I can justify buying HZ Percussion even with a large discount.

    What's on your Spitfire Christmas Wish List?

    I'm trying to decide whether or not to get LCO strings... I already have the Spitfire Evos (including OACE), OT's Time Macro, Heavyocity's IT and RT. I feel this already makes most of LCO strings redundant for me and wouldn't be worth it even at 40% discount. Open to debate though.

    Anyone holding out on CSB for Modern Scoring Brass (MSB) ?

    I got CSB and I may end up getting MSB too, it seems to be like they'd cover different needs so I wouldn't be wasting money by having both if MSB turns out to be revolutionary.

    Berlin Harp vs Symphonic Sphere harp?

    I’ve bought the harps library since writing this post, mainly because I didn’t really need the other things from sphere, but I can’t give a comparison since I don’t own sphere.

    Cinematic Studio Woodwinds?

    Honestly I think BWW is worth the purchase even if CSW were to come out tomorrow, there's just so much ground that BWW covers to such a high quality.

    Your best 2018 purchase?

    Cinematic Studio Strings + CSSS bundle. It's been on most of my works since purchase and I'm more than happy with it. Only gripe is lack of extended articulations, but I don't often need those and I have other libraries for those. Extremely good value for money.

    Cinematic Studio Woodwinds?

    They're aiming for middle of next year, though I imagine end of next year is more realistic. Unless we get a repeat of CSB and end up waiting until the end of 2020 :laugh:

    BWW vs CSW

    Based on the delays we saw with CSB, I think end of 2019 or 2020 is more realistic :laugh:

    Orchestral Tools Metropolis Ark 4 - Elite Orchestral Forces

    I don't think you can compare them, Ark 4 is mostly dealing with combinations of instruments, while SCS is a focussed effort on individual chamber string sections.

    Orchestral Tools - Metropolis Ark 4 - New Demo online!

    I think it would be a smart move to have an extra discount for those who own all the previous Arks. It would become a no-brainer for those who already own everything else and are questioning whether they need this, while also encouraging new customers to buy the other Arks on sale and take...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    Yeah I don't really understand, OT said that they weren't doing sales in order to avoid screwing over loyal customers. Then they choose to suddenly dish out large sales without warning, thereby screwing over loyal customers

    Save up to 63% on orchestral tools

    I don't understand the logic in their decision to do the sale at this time, many people will have no money left for this sale. Seems like they would have made more sales if they'd done this on Black Friday.

    Hollywood Orchestra or Berlin Series... or BOTH??

    If you have the money for it, Berlin Woodwinds might be good for you to get. The Hollywood woodwinds are generally considered to be the weakest part of that orchestra and Berlin Woodwinds are generally considered the best, so it would more than certainly boost that section for you.

    What OT Berlin libraries would you buy if you have the following libraries?

    If they put the main collections on the BF sale this year, I would guess that some sort of expansions might be next year but I wouldn't count on it. Boring answer, but expansions depend on what you need. The solo woodwinds are great if you don't already have that covered, I'm a fan of the FX...

    Orchestral Tools: Glory Days - Big Band Horns

    YES that solved it! Turned off anti-virus and now the multis are loading in 3 seconds instead of several minutes! I've now put my sample library SSDs on the exclusions list so that should hopefully be that, thanks! Might be useful for @OrchestralTools to include this somewhere in their...

    Internal SSD seperate from the boot drive, did a batch resave with Kontakt 5.8.1 full. Just the normal instrument multis. It only takes me 3 seconds to load each multi from BWW so I really don’t understand.

    Black Friday Woodwinds Choice

    I really feel like this is comparing apples and oranges. Mixing a CH or FA wind instrument with an orchestra makes it sound like a concerto for that instrument, whereas something like Berlin/Spitfire WWs can easily blend into the orchestra. I'd use CH or FA woodwinds for solo stuff, or very...
