    TOMORROW 18th July - Tune in for a special announcement!

    I enjoy seeing companies take a creative approach with new sample libraries. Though clearly not going to appeal to everyone. Having so many traditional instrument libraries now, I find it challenging to cost-justify yet another string/brass/woodwind library purchase. Something different is...

    Kontakt 6 crash during batch resave

    I've had this also occur with a couple of products. Most recently, the 1.0.1 update to The Orchestra Complete crashes Kontakt 6 during batch resave. The the 1.0.0 version of The Orchestra Complete batch reserves fine with Kontakt 6. I messaged with both Best Service and Sonuscore. They...

    SPitfire Studio Winds - Free expression maps & Track Presets!!!

    Very generous of you to share this - thx. Perhaps I'm missing the obvious, but on the web page - how does one download it? There's a "contact us" button, but it's grey'd out. Hmmm....

    Massive X is Out!

    Interesting... I checked on my mid 2011 iMac with 16 GB (High Sierra), and it reported support for AVX. After purchasing Massive X, it downloaded and ran fine. I would have thought a later-model iMac would support AVX. If you run the following command in the OS X Terminal app, it will tell...

    Straylight - new from NI

    Agreed - as I mentioned, clearly on a lower-class machine like mine, it will be necessary to Freeze any Straylight tracks. On a higher-class machine, likely less of an issue.

    Straylight - new from NI

    I'm using it on a 4-core i5 with no issues - no pops or clicks. Granted, it does take 30-40% of the CPU, but it works fine. Clearly, in a DAW I'll need to freeze tracks to free up CPU. I originally wondered given the i7 spec, if there were i7 specific instructions being used. Doesn't seem to...

    Spitfire Audio - Kepler Orchestra - Available NOW

    Similar situation here with the clicks - only library I have, that does this. Increasing the buffer size does help. Ironically, I also purchased Straylight - thinking it would bring my system to its knees... it does not. Yet Kepler consistently creates pops and clicks with my standard buffer...

    Art Conductor 5.2 - New Cubase expression maps and Logic articulation sets added

    There are two different expression maps for each instrument - one being all set to Attribute, one being all set to Direction. I have used the Direction expression maps, which works fine for my workflow. If one wants a mix, it would be easy to go into the Expression Map editor and change to...

    New Spitfire Evolutions plugins

    The one enhancement that would be great from my perspective, is Multi's across different instruments that use the Spitfire player. Not having to load individual VST's per Spitfire instrument, but rather one VST player that hosts all Spitfire instruments, would be great. Thanks for listening, Ben.

    New Spitfire Evolutions plugins

    I have nothing against the Spitfire player. But after a year, I wish it would support the concept of multi-product hosting within a Single Spitfire player. Having a separate VST plugin for each instrument doesn't scale well (E.g., a defect must be fixed and re-installed in all versions of the...

    John Williams - Raiders March mockup (with a tiny template)

    Nope - no issue with the tempo or John Williams :grin: Was just sharing a thought as I listened through the first time. I still like it.

    John Williams - Raiders March mockup (with a tiny template)

    Nice job - I like it! Something to be said for doing more with less. One thing I notice listening for the first time, is the tempo seems pretty rigid throughout. This is something I'm aware of, as I need to be more fluid with subtle tempo changes in my compositions. Perhaps slight changes in...

    Extended for 24hrs: Drum Fury - Apocalyptic Drums - 50% off Intro Pricing

    I was wondering why SL took this approach (separate NKI's for microphone positions), versus having all the microphone positions in a single NKI with the ability to blend? Seems a bit cumbersome, but perhaps there's a benefit to the multi NKI approach? Overall, seems like a nice library - very...

    Something is Coming - Spitfire Thunderbolt

    Completed the Thunderbolt bundle with 50% off the percussion library - thanks Spitfire! And in the past I've whined about slow Spitfire download speeds. I was pleasantly surprised today to get a reasonably fast download - very much appreciated.

    Should you buy new or refurbished Apple products?

    I've purchased refurbished directly from Apple many times - iMacs and MacBooks. Only once did I have an issue immediately after unboxing an iMac. Apple swapped it out quickly (sent the replacement before I returned the original), and the replacement has worked fine since. I wouldn't hesitate...

    I need some advice on Chirs Hein Brass Complete

    Did the same here and no issues. Initially, I didn't realize that purchasing the $75 update included all instruments and samples (not just the new ones). Great price - thx Chris and Best Service!

    Creating Expression Maps for CSS (and CSB/CSSS/CS2)

    This is a well written tutorial on building expression maps - clearly geared toward CSS, but applicable with other products, as well. Thanks Nico, for taking the time to prepare and share this. Did you post or do you intend to post, the three finished expression maps (Standard, Basses, Full...

    What's on your Spitfire Christmas Wish List?

    Went for some of the more esoteric libs this year: Earth Encounters 1; Ricotti Mallets; Findon Kit Bag 2; Scraped Percussion; and Steel Drums. Clearly, not the mainstream products, but interesting to get creative with. And a bit easier on the finances. Also, a couple have the eDNA Engine...

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    Bought it but the download is ssssllllooowwww.... Spitfire is very professional in most aspects of their business. Download speeds sadly are not (at least where I'm located). That said, it should complete downloading after 8 to 10 hours using 5 percent of my available bandwidth. And then at...

    Spitfire Studio Brass

    Perhaps being able to change the length of the staccato patch covers a broad range of shorts? Not sure if this is Spitfire's thinking, but it does seem flexible with their approach -- particularly if you assign the slider to a continuous controller.

    Not an expert here with Cubase crashes. But in the past when I've had issues with Cubase crashing, I've started by moving the entire preferences folder (on OS X). If it starts up after rebuilding it's preferences files, then I move the prior Preferences file back and selectively remove files...

    < $10k baby grand pianos: Thoughts?

    Hey Andrew, I spent a year looking at used and new pianos - similar situation, with limited space in the living room. Would have really liked a Yamaha C7, but alas, budget and space didn't fly. Found a clearance Kawai baby grand with a good sounding bass register (for some reason, sounds...

    Eric Whitacre Choir

    m Without advocating whether one should buy it or not - nor how it compares to other libraries, just playing it is fantastic. I spent the afternoon with it today, running it through Spaces II and wow, what a great choral library. What it provides, it does well. Very nice job, Spitfire!

    Something new from Spitfire?

    90 Mbps here - about 1/2 the speed of my connection. It will take a few hours, but looking forward to getting it loaded up. Sounds brilliant, and it's tough to pass-up new Evo's.

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

    At this point, glad it was released on Kontakt. Nothing against the Spitfire player -- but with HZ Strings, just doesn't get as much use outside of Kontakt. Lack of Multi ability with other instruments slows things down for me with the Spitfire player (not a big template user, combining...
