    Spitfire Spring Wish List Announced ;)

    Came close to getting the Studio Brass Pro, Studio Woodwinds Pro and Eric Whitarce Choir but had to draw the line somewhere. I'll see how I get on with the Studio Strings Pro and maybe take the plunge on the other Studio series libraries at a later date.

    Here's how I would write the final music of 'Game of Thrones'.

    Really enjoyed listening to your piece. I had considered Forzo during the NI sale but opted to give it a miss this time round, although it does sound very good.

    Spitfire Chamber Strings - Pro version worth it?

    Planning on purchasing the Spitfire Chamber Strings in the Wish List sale. Is it worth spending the additional money to go all out for the Pro version or do most people manage just fine with the standard version?

    Which libraries did he cover?

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    The only thing I can take away from all this discussion is that I no longer have a clue whether or not I should buy the library now! I was ready to hit the Buy button but now I don’t know who to believe. Help!

    Spitfire Spring Wish List Announced ;)

    Also interested in the Studio Strings (and possibly Brass and Woodwinds). I only have Albion One at the moment in terms of Spitfire Strings. Was contemplating Chamber Strings but thinking Studio Strings might be a better bet. Any thoughts on whether or not to go with Pro version?

    External G-Drive USB HDD fast enough for a Project drive?

    I guess a 4th option would be to keep my Project content on the internal SSD in the iMac. Or is it better to keep it separate from the OS and Apps? The Project content would be a mixture of Midi and Audio although mostly Midi data)

    New iMac 2019 - what size of SSD?

    Thanks for everyone's feedback. 1TB would be a nice to have but not sure I can justify the Apple price for a 1TB SSD so I'm thinking 512Gb may win.

    'Fully loaded Mac Mini' vs 'Mac Mini with PC Slave'?

    Hello, About to purchase my first Mac (Mini). I'm looking at the i7 model with 512 SSD but I can't decide between going with 32Gb Memory or 64Gb Memory (I don't feel confident enough to fit the memory myself so will probably take the hit and purchase the RAM from Apple). One option is to go...

    Spitfire orchestra Libraries - which ones?

    Well after going back and forth I’ve finally decided to skip the Wishlist sales (including the Choir and Swarms collection) Instead I’m going to spend more time getting better at making use of Albion One (which I already own) before spending any more money.

    I7 iMac 2017 - Fan noise?

    I have heard from the reviews I've read so far that the new 2017 i7 iMacs are noisier than the 2015 versions. Perhaps a combination of the updated i7 and graphics card. New i5 iMacs are supposed to be just as quiet as the previous version.
