    Spitfire Audio - Hauschka Composer Toolkit ...

    Question is: what libraries need to be made still? Traditional orchestra has been done, there’s a studio range for a different room and a lot of good ambient libraries have been done. At this point they are more likely to go for experimental stuff; which is more hit-or-miss than say, a standard...

    Race to the Limitless Expanse - Orchestral Action

    Nice job! Especially like the rythmic punchiness and strings in the beginning.

    Cubase vs logic... is hans zimmer right?

    Better music sounds better. DAWs differ mostly in workflow - they don't really make you a better composer. These threads about extremely small differences, and the question if they exist at all or not, are all a bit useless to me. Use a DAW that you love, and don't hold onto artificial...

    Albion One vs Metropolis Ark 1

    Nice comparison! These libraries are top-tier starter libraries for more epic orchestral stuff. Buying them together and just dropping a grand(!) is not something I would advice or something a lot of starters would be able to afford. You can make brilliant music with either one of these...

    Spitfire Bespoke private range libraries

    I was looking into what demos this referred to. Here's one of them by Colin O'Malley. Sounds simply masterfully crafted in composition and programming: Mentioned elsewhere by Paul: I think what's important though, is not always just the samples. People like Andy Blaney do complete magic with...

    Is it legal?

    I am wondering about this. If a certain set of samples can only be used in musical context: are YouTube reviews, tutorials and behind-the-scenes also in violation for just playing single tracks out of context? Even though this is not what the EULA is trying to prevent: if you look at it from a...

    Does Performance Samples not want my money?

    I was worried about this as well, hold off from Caspian over it. Spitfire's performance legatos never really stood out to me as being more intensive while recording & totally usable. It's very kind this warning is put in as many developers would just rather take your money before knowing if...

    Can someone explain to me why Spitfire's Studio Orchestra doesn't include percussion?

    Just want to mention that their symphonic range collection also doesn't include percussion: they have a 'complete' version with separate percussion, harp and piano: but they weren't officially part of the symphonic range. Perhaps if this turns out well they might consider continuing on with...

    Spitfire Studio Woodwinds - Coming Soon

    It's still possible, Spitfire's old percussion library wasn't really part of the Symphonic range either & especially if Studio turns out a success it would be a good thing for SF to consider even outside the bundle.

    Orchestral Tools: OT Sample Player

    I can imagine it also being worth it in the long run to not have to rely on any of NI's actions. Even though I don't see Kontakt 'dying' anytime soon: if you're more independent from them you're always in the clear if anything happens. Having your own architecture in place, you can fix things...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    I see a lot of worry in this thread. Remember when sample libraries grew and people were afraid it might turn all session musicians homeless. It didn't. Sample libraries are just tools assisting composers and will likely never fully replace humans. Real instrument always have a edge for just...

    Waiting for Spitfire Audio subscription service

    Sure, you could. But when I’m looking at how often I’m using standard libraries - it’s almost always more than monthly. Besides, it’s still impractical for when you include it in a template for example. I wouldn’t like to worry what subscriptions are active or have to selectively pick and plan...

    Waiting for Spitfire Audio subscription service

    This is also my main problem with subscriptions like this. You almost never use a library for a month only, so while €30 might not seem like a whole lot - it does ramp up to cost what you're paying for libraries now even though you don't technically 'own' the libraries. It sometimes feels more...

    Lacrimosa Sale - only DEMO?

    Hey! Do you own the full version of Kontakt? Lacrimosa requires the full Kontakt, and will demo out if you try opening it in the free Kontakt Player. Hope you get it sorted out!

    Jurassic World Evolution soundtrack released

    Wow! This is so inspiring to hear. I almost can't believe this is all samples, reaching this level of realism with samples is really a dream for me. Amazing job!
