    Orange Tree?

    So if I add both Angelic Harp and Slide Guitar, I don't have to get the Slide Guitar, I can just purchase the Angelic Harp on its own?

    Orange Tree?

    So I have Angelic Harp and Slide Acoustic on my group buy list. I was wondering, since I'm not 100% that I'm going to actually get Slide Acoustic, will I get individual discount coupons for each library, or will it be one coupon discount for the two libraries together?

    Right, thanks for the info!

    Orange Tree?

    I was planning on getting Angelic Harp while the group buy is on. I was wondering, can I buy it now at 50% discount or do I need to wait until the end of the group buy to reach 60% before I can buy it? Not sure I completely understand how the group buy works.

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    Funny you say that, because Valhalla Vintage Verb (I assume that's what you meant) was my favourite, but I for some reason went with Valhalla Room. When I send an instrument to a mixer track with Reverb on it, the Reverb is at 100% wet and I just alter the send percentage depending on how far I...

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    I've been needing a proper Woodwinds library for ages now. Still don't know whether to wait for CSW or just go for Spitfire Studio Winds or even Symphonic winds while they're on sale.

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    Yeah it can do. I find I have to EQ my low percussion such as Timpani and Gran Cassa a fair bit sometimes. I just like to have the percussion to sound as pushed back as possible. CSB room mic work best for Trumpet repetitions, I find. I just think that you lose a little bit of punch by doing...

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    I sometimes use Panagement for Woodwinds, but just woodwinds. For Percussion, I always use the far mics. However, for CSS and CSB, I just used the mix mics and sent them to the reverb for that specific mock-up. I kinda wish I'd have used the far mics for the Trombones as they sound kinda dry there.

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    Ha! I wasn't expecting anyone to have heard any of my other YouTube uploads on this forum. Thanks a lot! I've often thought about doing some videos of just making music and recording it but I'm terrible at talking to myself, lol. In that specific mock-up, the set up was: CSB CSS CineWinds Core...

    Best Harp Library

    Any reasons? From my point of view just from listening to the demos, Concert Harp sounds warmer and I prefer the sound. But Angelic Harp's Glissandi feature looks useful.

    Best Harp Library

    If you guys had a choice between Orange Tree Samples Angelic Harp and Project Sam Concert Harp, which would you go with, personally?

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    I think I'm going to do the same. I need to start resisting the urge to purchase libraries just because they're on sale haha. I like the sound of the individual Orchestral Tool products when they finally arrive. Might wait for those to hold me out until CSW comes out.

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    ohhh yeah that's going to be part of their player launch, right? I remember seeing this on Facebook a few months ago. Now the decision becomes harder xD

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    I've been playing around with the VSL stuff from Best Service, but I'm just not a fan of the player. When you say they sell individual Berlin woodwinds, is that from the Expansions or everything including the Revive stuff? I'd go with Revive right now if I could afford it which is why I'm...

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    I'm in this predicament. Knowing that if I avoid Berlin EXP stuff, I'll likely regret it immediately, whereas if I do buy them and find they aren't exactly what I need, I'll regret that too, haha
  18. NeonMediaKJT

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    Yeah, I think that's why I'm on the fence right now. Basically, I have Cinewinds Core that covers my basic Woodwind needs. But I have no English Horn or Bass Clarinet and figured that maybe Berlin Expansions would be a nice addition to Cinewinds. Not sure, though.

    Infinite Woodwinds — Welcome to the Next Generation

    Wow. I've been after a Woodwind library for so long. I was waiting for CSW to be released until Berlin Expansions went on sale and then right before I was sure I wanted to go ahead and purchase the Berlin Expansions, Infinite Woodwinds comes out and it's pretty much exactly what I need.

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    Do you guys think CSW will include Bass Clarinet and English Horn? Debating whether or not to buy the Berlin Woodwind Expansions A+B while on sale, but not sure if I should just wait for CSW.

    Hollywood Brass + CB or CSB?

    It depends if you will be getting both Cinebrass libraries. For example, I have Hollywood Brass, Cinebrass core and CSB. out of the ones I have, I would choose CSB and Hollywood Brass simply because Cinebrass Core lacks some things Hollywood Brass has. I also think the difference in sound...

    Do you know how long the woodwind sale will last? NVM June 27. I'm blind haha

    Solo woodwinds for orchestral music?

    Do the Berlin expansions require a base library? Can someone who owns no Berlin libraries just buy the EXP A and B and they'll work fine?

    VSL instrument licenses vanished from e-licenser

    hmmm. I was this close to purchasing Woodwinds SE. I think I'll keep away. Was never a fan of having all my EWQL licenses on an iLok in fear of magically losing them all.

    On the Fence About Spitfire Studio Woodwinds

    Hmmm... Just reading the comments and I'm stuck. I have Cinewinds Core, but lack English Horn and Bass Clarinet. I have been trying to decide whether to get Spitfire Studio Woodwinds whilst on sale for £109 or VSL Woodwinds SE for 70 Euros. I tried VSL SE and while I like it, it doesn't have...

    Cinematic Studio Brass - out now!

    Just wanted to share a little mock-up I did with CSB. I should've perhaps pushed the trombones further back in the room

    Transferring Sample Libraries to New PC

    No worries! I've been told by Performance Samples that moving Caspian Brass folder to the new PC and using Kontakt to open it will just work without any kind of authorization. So that's one mystery solved, lol. Hopefully, the rest is just as easy. I would like to figure out if I do have to do...

    Transferring Sample Libraries to New PC

    Regarding the quickload thing, my intentions was to just rebuild that from scratch by searching for the files in the kontakt file browser and recreating all the folders again. Should be okay doing that, right?

    Transferring Sample Libraries to New PC

    And that applies to the libraries on an entirely new computer? All I have to do is point Kontakt to them when I install it? Thanks for the response!

    Transferring Sample Libraries to New PC

    Hi, I'll be completely upgrading to an entirely new PC in the coming week and the thought of getting all my samples working is overwhelming. I've been told that I can simply copy the sample folders from my PC to an external hard drive, then plug the external hard drive into the new pc and copy...

    Woodwinds to go with CSS and CSB

    Thanks very much for that! Would you say VSL goes well with Cinewinds core? Or do you use one more than the other? Would it be a good addition to Cinewinds?

    Woodwinds to go with CSS and CSB

    Hello everyone. I'm also looking for a decent woodwinds library that isn't too expensive until CSW comes out. Currently using Cinewinds Core and I'm lacking English Horn and Bass Clarinet. I'm not really wanting to upgrade to the Pro version. I've seen a few people mention VSL Woodwinds SE and...

    Talk to me about Percussion Libraries

    I love True Strike 1, personally. I've been so satisfied with the traditional orchestral sound it has ever since I purchased it. It's way cheaper than most libraries and I find it has a nice balanced sound. The mic options allow it to sound as close as you want. I personally have my percussion...

    Performance Samples Caspian as a first/main brass library - thoughts?

    I own both Caspian and CSB. Caspian is really great, I love it. Especially the Trombones. The only issue is playing repetitions is hard because there aren't really Round Robins. But playing big brass melodies with it is so fun! CSB I just bought and it just sounds amazing all around, IMO. The...

    Embertone Releases: Walker 1955 Steinway 'D'

    Hi, Just wanted to note that if anybody happened to be experiencing the issue that I did. Try unpacking the zip files onto an SSD instead of a regular HDD. It ended up fixing my problem!

    Embertone Releases: Walker 1955 Steinway 'D'

    Hi Alex, Basically, when I had these missing file errors, I was able to skip locating these files when Kontakt asked me to and was able to play some notes only at specific velocities. I have the same issue now after I've replaced the files with the manually downloaded ones, except now Kontakt...

    Embertone Releases: Walker 1955 Steinway 'D'

    Hi, I bought the Lite version on sale and have had lots of difficulties getting it to work. Initially, the Connect app kept crashing on install, so I had to manually unpack the zip files and structure them myself following a guide from Embertone Support. I kept getting missing file errors and...

    Good percussion library for $100?

    Native Instruments Symphony Percussion Essentials Timpani

    Thanks, mate! Yes, I really like the sound of the full version and if the essentials version is anything like it, then that'd be great. I can't find much info on it other than the manual so I'm not 100% what it'd be like regarding the Timpani. Also, Mic positions don't bother me so much as I...

    Native Instruments Symphony Percussion Essentials Timpani

    Hi, I need some decent round robin Timpani and Native Instruments Symphony Essentials Percussions is only around £80. I think it includes a very basic set of sounds, but I think Timpani is included. I was wondering if anyone who does own this library could tell me how good the Timpani is...

    CineBrass CORE 1.7 - Finally! Legato update, Trombone True Legato

    CineBrass CORE 1.7 - Finally! Legato update, Trombone True Legato

    What does having Pro have to do with how loud the instruments can go?

    CineBrass CORE 1.7 - Finally! Legato update, Trombone True Legato

    I have both and honestly, I think you get way more with Hollywood Brass. Cinebrass has great short notes (I hate Hollywood Brass trombones short notes), but I find that the sustains can't go loud enough. It's good to have both, but I wouldn't completely swap Hollywood Brass for Cinebrass.
