    Guitarist, broke finger on left hand, what to do...

    Hello VI-C friends, I broke my finger playing basketball 4 or 5 weeks ago, I didn't get it checked because I assumed it was just a strain but I'm pretty sure it was broken because it was purple, yellow and all. Now, 2 days ago, it was starting to heal but some crazy lady yanked my finger by...

    Looking for 'playable' orchestra

    Stick with your VSL SE (with Synchron update). While all the other options are indeed playable, I don't think you will get instant gratification from anything if you're not at ease with VSL SE since (in my opinion) it is the most playable and fast loading library I know of. For legatos, make...

    Irish flute for exposed parts?

    I've used it recently for a project and it's awesome! I also use the Shire whistle and it is also awesome :)

    Would help if we had more details, which DAW, which sampler, etc.

    Keeping your DAW off Internet

    I keep mine online all the time, I also work in IT as my main job though. I just don't go on weird websites or install cracked crap. I have two-factor enabled on everything that matters.

    Do You Use Analog Saturation?

    I personally don't. Never cared for those plugins.

    You can if none of your old projects reference to it of course. Think of the expansions as brand new material, performance.

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    I almost did it, but the current contract and lack of time would cause too many problems. But I will definitely do it next time. :)

    Do you use Kontakt's Factory library at all?

    I personally never use it or just forget that it's there. I keep installed though, in case I need some weird instrument that I don't have anywhere else.

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    I should point out that this is for an indie videogame and not a movie or tv ad. In these kinds of videogames you have way more freedom on the styles, you can go hybrid or even create your own style so it's not like I'd have to make super credible EDM - The client cares about melody above all...

    Thank you for your comment @givemenoughrope, Well that's exactly what I have been doing, trying my best. Thankfully it's working so far haha. I have 3 weeks deadline for 4 other songs so I think I'll be fine but man do I wish for a standard gig next :D

    Well... Rap or Western is kinda extreme @chillbot, I'm not sure anyone would want any sane person to write that :P

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    Thank you for your comment @Wolfie2112 :) I don't compose as a primary income myself, I accepted the job because the client offered a more than acceptable deal. He was actually aware of my portfolio but for some reason really wanted me to score this game :) I don't think odds of getting a...

    Hired to write a style you dislike/don't care about?

    Hi Vi:C friends, I'm sure many of you have been hired to compose a style you don't particularly like, of course that comes with the job, I know that. My usual styles are typical jRPG and melodic, think Final Fantasy, Golden Sun, Xenogears, etc. One of my past jobs was composing the score...

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Converted a song I did in 2015 in Logic using VI Special Edition vol. 1 and changed all the instruments to Synchron-ized Special Edition vol. 1 Not bad I guess, it didn't take a long time to do since the placement is already assigned per patch. The percussions do sound better, that's for sure...

    Switching from Logic to Cubase Advice?

    I did the same thing last year because I thought about moving from Mac to PC, even if you don't, you'll have that option. But feature-wise, you'll find Cubase offers more albeit with more scattered windows :D

    So, what Mac are you going to get next? (Poll)

    To echo @cmillar's post, I've been building PC computers since 1987 or so, owned a ton of them and still do. I bought three iPhones, 3GS, 4 and 4S, then bought an iMac 2011 because I loved Logic. When I was using XP, Vista came out, tried it, trashed it! Same with Windows 7, couldn't stand...

    CSS: Elegantly Switching Legato to Non-Legato?

    Ahh, yeah my mistake. It's Vienna Instruments Pro that lets you load as many VIs with the same samples that won't load them twice. Although I seem to remember that Kontakt had a feature called Memory server or something that worked the same way.

    CSS: Elegantly Switching Legato to Non-Legato?

    Apparently I was mistaken... I've tried adding 6 patches of Light and Sound Violin1 and everytime I added one it used more RAM :( Maybe that was possible before, sorry to have lead you into the wrong idea... Can I summon the great master @EvilDragon to enlighten us? :)

    CSS: Elegantly Switching Legato to Non-Legato?

    I think if you load the complete CSS patch 16 times within the same instance it should reuse the same samples rather than loading them all over :) * Edited

    So, what Mac are you going to get next? (Poll)

    I don't think I'm ever gonna get a Mac again, my two iMacs 2011 both died from the damned Radeon 6970m issue and both died a year after I could do it on warranty. I'm perfectly happy on Windows 10 Pro with Studio One and Cubase.

    CSS: Elegantly Switching Legato to Non-Legato?

    I don't have CSS but wouldn't it be easier to just load all the articulations you need into one instance of Kontakt and just send the notes to the correct articulation by simply assigning the midi channel of the instance?

    Buying NI piece by piece

    Exactly, also for anyone who doesn't own the full version of Kontakt the singles support the free Kontakt player. If you don't own Kontakt full or Komplete, the singles are really less expensive.

    They dealt with that, they only had to remove the mention of the word 'Steinway' and have changed it since then.

    For me at least, I don't need 90% of what's in Komplete Ultimate and I already own Kontakt 6. Purchasing individually makes more sense for me.

    Embertone Releases: Walker 1955 Steinway 'D'

    Embertone is a small team, I know we're all impatient but give 'em a chance to fix things out. For all we know they probably had to re-record sections of the whole thing.

    DAW Performance Test Results

    Yeah, lots happened since the 4.x release. The fast workflow alone made me sacrifice Cubase's advanced MIDI editing. Would've probably stayed in Cubase if it had the ability to focus VSTis to screen when you change tracks like Logic and Studio One does. Cubase Pro 9.5 worked perfectly for me...

    Glad to see Studio One doing well, switched from Cubase Pro 9.5 a while ago for a game I'm working on and I've been pleasantly surprised.

    Anthology II: Adagio general discussion

    I have it, it plays exactly like the video is doing. I find it is a nice spot in between Virharmonic and Tina Guo, it can play faster than both and still has a nice character.
