    EW Spaces II - Anyone upgrading?

    Yup. I'm willing to upgrade, but not north of $100. Just voting with my wallet.

    64% Off: Adventure Brass by MusicalSampling

    I see them as largely two different animals. Adventure Brass is a specialist, and I will likely be picking this up during this sale because what it specializes in, it looks to do very well. I have MSB, and it is a much broader tool than Adventure Brass. I think I could probably get close to...

    $21 deals for the JRR Shop 21st Anniversary Sale

    As an impulse buy, I just picked up Xhun Little One, a fun little synth that takes me back to the 80s. For me, it was a great deal at $21. Its installation is the most cumbersome I've encountered for some time, but once everything was in place, I was in a version of analogue heaven. I...

    So what should I put on my SSD?

    From the article mentioned above: "Fill your solid-state drive to near-capacity and its write performance will decrease dramatically." Notice the condition: write performance. For sample drives, this ought not be an issue for us, since most of the time we're writing once and then reading the...

    MSB or CSB? Please vote.

    Well, I only have MSB, so I don’t feel I can cast an informed vote. I’d be surprised if there were many people who have both and therefore can provide informed opinions. I fear your poll may just turn into a popularity contest with the owners of just one package voting for the one they own...

    Strezov Sampling presents AFFLATUS Chapter 1 // 1.2 Update feat. 18GB of new sample content

    Keep trying. I received the same message when I first tried downloading my first 1.2 file, but then something kicked in and it started working. Good luck.

    Orchestral Tools: Glory Days - Big Band Horns

    Well, it seems like I'm missing something obvious on the single patch. Again, I'll keep trying to figure it out. It looks like I am stuck with figuring out how CAPSULE works, as it seems to be beguiling me in a way that other developer's instruments don't. Positively, on the multi patches...

    Orchestral Tools: Glory Days - Big Band Horns

    I can adjust the vibrato within the "Romantic" setting, yes. But even with vibrato at 0 on the "Romantic" setting, there's still vibrato. That's what the "Without" setting seems to be for. It seems like there should be a way to choose (select either or) between these two options on the...

    Orchestral Tools: Glory Days - Big Band Horns

    A question: I'm stuck with not knowing how to switch between the "Romantic" and "Without" styles of playing apart from clicking on the two buttons with my mouse (Say on a Trumpet 1 Legato patch). I can't find any way to automate this. Right clicking on the button or label just opens Quick...

    Presonus Most Epic Webcast EVER! May 20, 2019

    There is some deep(er) integration going to be announced that day with Nektar, at least with (some of?) their Panorama line. This may not be all that's coming, but clearly there will be at least an update for Studio One and an official unveiling of this deeper partnership/integration with...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    That's the thing about almost all of the comparison videos I've seen over the last couple of years that have someone pitting 2+ libraries "against" each other. Because getting the best performance out of each library involves different means; simply plugging, playing, and comparing rarely gives...

    Why/how do YOU still use Albion One?

    Here is a clip from the song I was referring to: The Albion One strings are prominent and in the foreground. This is the type of string sound I was after. The Albion One woodwinds are there, too, providing color (esp. in the 10-15 second mark) and again at the end. At other points in the...

    Why/how do YOU still use Albion One?

    I don't use Albion ONE a whole lot (it was one of my first libraries, too), but recently I returned to it to use its high strings because it had just the right sound -- somewhat vintage -- that I was looking for. Unfortunately, the samples cut off one not lower than what I needed... so I had to...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    One more sample, and I'll call it a day. Here is a very brief "context" cue I put together, featuring horns, tubas, piccolo trumpet, and cimbasso. These are joined by Audiobro's Genesis Children's Choir (my first Audiobro library) and some light strings from Spitfire's Albion V. I will...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    Here you go. First is a solo flugelhorn. Four times (same performance each time): 1st time: legato speed dial at 50% (I played it at this setting), 2nd time at fastest (100%), 3rd time at slowest (0%), and the 4th time I manually edited the legato speed (picture below). You can hear, in the...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    Absolutely. There are some options to select from (1x speed, 2x speed, and 1/2 speed), but beyond this there is a knob that allows you to choose the exact speed you'd like.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I took the plunge and purchased MSB. It is a beast. Not only are there many instruments, and the inclusion of the "Intuition Series" instruments (which are delightful to play and sound great), but basically every single element/setting is configurable. I've started working my way through...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    On behalf of everyone who, like me, is still on the fence, thank you to all who are posting examples and answering questions. They are very helpful. It'll either be CSB or MSB for me, but I simply can't afford both. Audiobro got me to wait until now to hold off on purchasing CSB with their...

    Actually, it appears that he was talking about what he did with Cinematic Studio Brass in this instance.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I found that on YouTube after it was posted, but it sounds like a cut and paste job, replacing some other library with MSB. This is why I’m fine waiting a bit for demos that reflect the user taking some time to know their way around a new tool.

    FYI: Naked demos are promised from Audiobro. Andrew just posted to this effect on the Audiobro forum.

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I’m sure there are many more videos to come, like what they did for Genesis Children’s Choir. In the forum they promised to at least post one video on Friday to tide everyone over. I think that’s what they did, instead of just punting again to Tuesday and have a digital riot on their hands...

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I'll chime in and hazzard a guess: $899 list, with a perpetual "sale" price of $699.

    Strezov Sampling presents AFFLATUS Chapter 1 // 1.2 Update feat. 18GB of new sample content

    It makes no difference. The only difference might be less downloading if you wait until the revision is available, but I can't imagine any real reason to wait.

    Is the Behringer X-Touch any good ?

    I'll just chime in to add that I have the X Touch One (one single fader), one of the early batch. It is built like a tank, and the motorized fader is very quiet. I use it mostly for CC automation and some DAW navigation with Studio One.

    What are your favourite Brass Libraries then?

    Well, I'll be voting with my wallet this year. Have held off on CSB until I can see/hear what MSB can do (just over a week to wait, it seems). I'll be picking up either one of the two.

    Studio One users, how do you find S1 for big orchestral projects?

    Thank you so much, @jonathanwright. (I applied your ideas after you posted them on the Studio One board here last summer). This has revolutionized (or at least greatly sped up) my workflow in Studio One. I now have a series of shortcuts/presets for individual Kontakt instruments, organized by...

    Can't decide between Arva and Genesis

    Unfortunately, I can't give you an A/B comparison, as I only have Genesis between the two you're looking at. But I'll say that Genesis is one of the most consistently enjoyable to play and easy to use libraries I have. I have (in purchased order) Requiem Light, Mercury Elements, Mystica, and...

    Where’s my SF WL discounts?

    I never received one (though I did last year). The thing is that they didn't have to go through all the wishlist hoopla and could have just reduced prices on all their qualifying libraries -- no hassle, all straightforward. But I guess they are trying to create that sense of "scarcity" that...

    Where’s my SF WL discounts?

    I think Spitfire knows that I've already spent all of what I had to spend on sample libraries this year, and didn't bother sending me an email. :sick:

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

    I've opened a support ticket with Sonokinetic, as the copy I tried to install with the serial number I was given wasn't approved within Native Access -- it was stated as having already been used. Has this happened to anyone else?

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

    If I already had CSS, then I'd already be downloading CSB, no question. But Genesis has been my favorite purchase of 2018 and so I'm happy to give Audiobro a hearing. It's nice that by waiting I'm not missing out on any time-limited promotional pricing with CSB. I respect that. In that way...

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

    Hopefully by the time MSB is released, I'll have the money to either buy it or CSB! I already spent a significant amount of money on a number of great libraries... hardly any spare coins left now, so I might as well wait.

    Orchestral Tools: Glory Days - Big Band Horns

    Started taking a crack at learning my way around Glory Days. Here's a very short 13-second snippet with three instruments. So far, at least I'm liking what I'm hearing. This is with the default mics, out of the box: I've had some challenges with getting some of the dynamic layers in some...

    Deal Ends Tonight at 11:59PM! Embertone's Cyber Week Deal

    Yup... I manually installed every single ZIP file (ugh). I wasn't too pleased... but I admit I was pleased with the resulting sound I was able to enjoy after everything was working (also after I figured out with renaming issue thanks to an internet search).

    Audiobro Modern Scoring Brass (MSB)

    I've been waiting to pick up a brass library -- I was intending to pull the trigger this Black Friday week, or commit to the just-released-but-not-yet-available Cinematic Studio Brass. And now... since I'm such a big fan of Audiobro's Genesis, I may have still wait a bit longer. Only have...

    Orchestral Tools - Glory Days - Big Band Horns - New demo online!

    I'm hoping for another walk-through, as well. Dropping $500+ on a package with a single demo song, one video walkthrough, and no real-world opinions is a hard pill to swallow. I believe they'll post a second walk-through, as promised (focusing on the solo instruments at least), but I wish...

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

    Here you go. Out of the box stock sounds with no other processing, FX, reverb, etc. I tried to highlight some of the uniquenesses (at least for me) inherent in this library. Patches used: 1. Ensemble Shorts Divisi + Middle East Strings (0:00 - 0:20) 2. Contemporary Strings + Impressionist...

    Your Choir of choice - 2018

    Yes, there are limits. Genesis ain't going to get you epic, thundering Wotan-style basses, for example. I used it in a requiem I wrote as I processed my grief for the death of a friend's son (which was played at the funeral service). It ended being the perfect choir for that use. As...
