    Noire and K6 Player

    I was in the same position as you and I did not experience any issues. 5 stayed on my system alongside 6 Player. All my Logic projects and templates loaded up with 5 just as they’ve always done. I also was able to add Noire to my main template, having a mostly 5 Pro template with a few instances...

    Seeking views on NI Symphony Series & Brass

    I have the full version of the Brass, ensembles not solo. I absolutely love it and have always believed it is incredibly underrated. It has a big warm full sound. It’s not going to fit every piece but really no library can make that claim. It’s a different color and I appreciate that. Highly...

    Eating my words - Spitfire.

    Spitfire is hands down my favorite developer. They just resonate with what I like to hear and how I like to work. To be honest we are so fortunate to have so many amazing developers. We really are living in a time of riches. That being said, Chamber String is a 100% must have. Even if you...

    Faster String Runs Library to complement CSS

    Spitfire Chamber Strings - Pro version worth it?

    For me it was. For the outrigger mics alone.

    Why/how do YOU still use Albion One?

    I use it all the time. A lot of it is in my main template. Not just one but also the original 1. The Strings, especially the shorts sound really huge, also the Percussion is great as well. It’s also great for layering with other libs to fill out sections that need a little more to cut...

    So... who's got the best timpani?

    I also recommend Ni’s Symphony Series And Evolution Series Timpani. Both are great but I really like the flexibility of the Symphony Series Timpani. I also really need to get Timphonia!

    Sooo many reverbs but which one would you prefer for orchestral use?

    I mainly (own most) use three verbs - 1. Reverberate 2 (best all around for or orchestral/natural spaces) 2. Waves Abbey Road Plates (Beautiful Sound) 3. UAD 224 (My favorite ambient verb) Most often I just use Reverberate 2 but sometimes I’ll set up three busses and set each verb to be...

    Spitfire harp -- sound stops problem

    I too have experienced this issue and I also believe it was (at least for me) the result of using the midi chase function in Logic.

    Orchestral Tools: OT Sample Player

    Looks really nice. Wondering if it will be compatible with the older version of BWW (don’t have the newer release). Also, love the idea of buying just the instruments you want. Really interesting and exciting development.

    Spitfire orchestra Libraries - which ones?

    I hear you. I waited for a few years to get SSB and finally got it this year. Hang in there, you’ll get it!

    What did you buy from Spitfire's Wishlist?

    Outrigger Mics. A must for me, at least with that library.

    Spitfire orchestra Libraries - which ones?

    I don’t yet own Symphonic Strings (yet!), but I doubt I’d use anything over SCS currently. It’s the Goldilocks library for me. It’s not to small (where it sounds like soloists) but still sounds intimate and it can also sound really lush and full, deceivingly larger than it should. It’s also...

    What did you buy from Spitfire's Wishlist?

    Studio Strings, standard edition. Wow is that a lot for $150! Honestly, I love the tone. I use Reverberate 2 and blend/layer it with SCS Pro and togeather they sound really, really nice. SCS has detail and space, while SSS adds a smoothness, richness to the sound. It’s a steal at the current promo.

    Spitfire orchestra Libraries - which ones?

    I also have to second Spitfire Studio Strings as being a great value. Just picked that up and couldn’t be more impressed. I cannot believe how much you get for $150 (current promo). Absolutely an absurd value. If you want to save some money, check it out for sure. If you have the cash, SCS.

    Spitfire orchestra Libraries - which ones?

    I own several Spitfire libraries (and love them all) but Spitfire Chamber Strings gets used almost always, in some way or another. If there was one library I would recommend for almost anything it would be that one. It’s very adaptable. Sounds good in nearly any context and has just about any...

    What's on your Spitfire Christmas Wish List?

    I finally purchased this on Black Friday and couldn’t be happier! I should have waited until this sale but I had lost all patience, LOL! It’s now my main brass library. Listen to the demos to see if it’s right for you. To me it’s the sound of many, many soundtracks I love. It’s a really good...

    MegaMagic Dreams for Kontakt or Omnisphere?

    Just watched your walkthrough video on YouTube and wanted to let you know, I think it sounds awesome! Definitely getting this! I’m also looking forward to using these sounds with my Roli (Alchemy is one of the few synths I have that work with it).

    Your Favorite Reverb?

    We are very fortunate as there are so many great reverb plugins. We are literally spoiled for choice. I own a few of them, these are my favorites. 1. Waves Abbey Road Plates. Downside is CPU usage. I struggle to use it when I’m running large sessions/templates. A shame as I’d use all the time...

    Eric Whitacre - thoughts?

    IMHO, a resounding yes! To have access to the sound of some of the best singers in England, conducted and arranged by Eric Whitacre, recorded at Air Studios is quite a bargain at $450 (currently). It’s also massive! There is so much content here, especially between the two plugins. It will...

    What are the best sample libraries for Taiko style percussion?

    Evolution Series Taiko is what I’ve been using. I really like them. They are not, in my opinion, hyped like some of the other Taiko libraries I’ve listened to. More natural, which I prefer, mostly. For a more epic style, I use the Taiko drums in Metopolis Ark 1...

    A New Chapter from Spitfire Audio...

    It’s been my assumption is that those who are enjoying this library do not feel comfortable posting here about it. Or possibly, they’re too busy making music with it ;-) Also, it seems that a lot of the critical posts are from people who have not used the library and are basing their opinions...

    SPITFIRE - Announcing Spitfire Studio Strings! 24 Hours LEFT on Promo Price!

    Ok, the big question - Standard or Pro. I like $199 and with already owning SCS Pro and SsS I’d probably be good. I’m planning to use it for layering. But... DIVISI!!!

    Best VI Drum Machine?

    Symphony Series - Percussion

    I just purchased SSP and used it on a new piece. It does have several cymbal rolls in it. FIW, I like it. The Timpani is great and the cymbals are nice (as well as the rest of the percussion). I also have LDLC cymbals but have not compared them yet.
