    VSL instrument licenses vanished from e-licenser

    Wow horrible to hear some of the awful experiences some vsl users have gone through here. Does Paul from VSL or anyone under them ever comment here and care to answer any of these great questions and concerns regarding usage of their products? I ddon't think spending more money just to ensure...

    Spitfire harp -- sound stops problem

    Hi John. Have you tried any of the other Harp libraries that are out? Would like some help choosing a harp library for traditional orchestral scoring. There are quite a bunch of choices to choose from and would like some suggestions how you came to your decision for the right harp library.

    Cineharps vs Chocolate Audio Harp

    Have you tried the OT Symphonic Harps? I believe it has more features. Which would you prefer between OT Symphonic Harps and Spitfire Harp if you can choose between the two? Would love to hear others' opinions here between these two harp libraries as well.

    Is the new JXL brass library the Zimmer sound we've been waiting for?

    Thanks for the suggestions here Noam. Yes, it's best to wait to listen and compare (even though maybe it's 6+ months away). Just wanted to hear your thoughts as well since as you mentioned TH did say it would be covering the low and very high dynamic range better than anything currently out...

    Is the new JXL brass library the Zimmer sound we've been waiting for?

    so if someone wants to do epic style brass, you think it's better to wait for the JXL Brass or just go with ARK 1? And I'd imagine they wont overlap otherwise it would be redundant? For instance if you get JXL Brass, there should still be reason to want to get the brass in ARK 1 as well...

    Spitfire Studio Woodwinds

    Hi, would like to choose a woodwinds library soon. Can the SF Symphonic Woodwinds do runs? I know the OT woodwinds have a feature for this. If anyone can specify or share a audio/video demo to hear some runs from the Spitfire Symphonic Woodwinds, that'd be very helpful. With an imminent...

    Eduardo Tarilonte DARK ERA

    Will there be an intro pricing on this new release? Spent much on other things already so wondering if there is incentive to get now vs later. Also, when can we expect the new Engine to be unveiled estimated time-frame? Thanks.

    This sample library is nowhere to be found!

    Very odd. Yea, they could always sell the rights to it to another developer or vst reseller...or be added as a freeware. Hearing no response since 2014 is a long time.

    Spitfire HZ Percussion: Worth the Price?

    I wondered why JunkieXL felt the need now to make a percussion library when there is already HZ Percussion and with his mixes in there. If there were ideas for a percussion library, why weren't those included with HZ Percussion during the making of it...guess theres things he's wanting that he...

    ARK 1 Brass vs. Trailer Brass

    Yea, thats kind of the reason why I'm passing on the Arks even with the sale and considering the other alternatives. Everything will eventually go on sale so its about what you are really after or need for your works. And Arks seem heavily drowned in reverb.

    ARK 1 Brass vs. Trailer Brass

    Hi Mike, for big epic brass, which do you recommend from those you mentioned. Also, why do you prefer Forzo over the others for trailer music?

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    @charlieclouser I hear ya and understand that completely. The aleatoric libraries can be great if it also allows you some some flexibility to be creative and tweak it so not just to play the same phrases over and over which can start to sound identical in your tracks as well as others using...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    Just because it doesn't show up in the final recording does not mean it is not a professional library or professional tool. Those are two different things. And real industry professionals prefer not to use sample libraries in their finished product recordings unless they are after a slightly...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    @charlieclouser Hey Charlie, I would imagine that the Spitfire products would have much of your orchestral needs taken care of well and assume you have a lot of their products since you were featured on some of their programs. What makes the OT libraries stand out to you compared to the similar...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    Actually, I am still correct. I didn't say that VSL is the only one professionals use, obviously. VSL has the most extensive list of advanced articulations for their libraries and is also the lightest on space and resources...no argument there. It is highly efficient and realistic given its...

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    VSL never have even half off on their main libraries. Sometimes their software goes on sale and such, but most is about around 25% for their libraries. Keep in mind some of their libraries are almost around 10 years old...and still going way strong.

    Orchestral Tools up to 63% off - which one

    VSL is where the real professionals go. The best instruments, software, and never depreciates. People complain sometimes that VSL is expensive, but you see its some of the best VI you can buy.

    Save up to 63% on orchestral tools

    Wow, OT has depreciated so much in value. This is so affordable now they could have these libraries for middle school and high school kids in music programs across the world to teach about midi orchestration and composition. Real bummer for those who already bought in earlier, but thats the...

    M-Audio Keystation vs. Nektar Impact (88-Key Controller)

    I love the Keystation. And frankly anyone who has major problems with Keystation also has major problems against the master that is John Carpenter. Carpenter is a major fan, user, and supporter for the Keystation. It works exceptionally well for what it is in the studio and live gigs. I dont...

    M-Audio Keystation vs. Nektar Impact (88-Key Controller)

    Keystations are very popular. I know of many musicians and working industry composers who use them. Even Daniel James, John Carpenter, and sample developers use the keystation controllers. They are priced well. I've read lots of issues with the Nektar models and their 88-key versions as well...

    M-Audio Keystation vs. Nektar Impact (88-Key Controller)

    I personally think the keystation 88 is great value and works well if you just need a controller with 88 keys without all the other fancy features found in more expensive models. The more your willing to spend, the more features a keyboard will have.

    CSS or Spitfire Studio Strings as HS replacement

    Do the orchestral spitfire libraries need to be put on SSD hard drives in order to run smoothly or will they work fine running on regular hard drives? HS definitely needed to be put on an SSD to run fairly well, that's for sure.

    Berlin Strings v Afflatus

    Berlin Strings v Afflatus

    Great discussions here. Lots of interesting points and things needing to be clarified. So it seems that Afflatus is on a different trajectory than the other string libraries in terms of its sounds and direction. Maybe this focus on symphonic strings should be more on Berlin Strings Vs...

    These are exactly my points here as well. But you have to understand you are not going to get these signature sounds and playing styles from SF. Not this early in the game. It's like pharmacy, you want a cure or solution but they just give you a fix so you come back hoping or "believing" for...

    Could be coincidence? Otherwise they are making very similar products to his, very similar name, and same studio once he "closed up shop". Members here haven't received any response back clarifying information as well as an update for their purchases.
