    Shreddag3 Stratus

    This doesn't have anything to do with us. Kontakt Scripting can not create directories and so it falls on the user to create the directory. They can do this manually or save 1 snapshot in the instrument so the directory is auto-generated by Kontakt. This is really on Native Instruments for...

    You can also simply drag the snapshots into Kontakt.

    Shreddag3 Stratus

    Hi Leon, Here is a page that shows all that Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE has to offer. It has many song demos written entirely using only the free version, as well as a lengthy tutorial video overviewing all the different things you can do with it. There is also a chart showing how the material...

    Why store scripts in the resource folder/container ?

    There's a very important thing to remember about the resource container. The NKR does not update automatically even as you are updating files inside the Resources/ folder it is based on. Kontakt will always go straight to the Resources/ folder if it is present for all of its scripts, pictures...

    Impact Soundworks Super Audio Cart

    When we have the next Kontakt beta available, you will want to replace your current Kontakt plugin file with that of the new one using the same file name. This should allow Logic to load using the new version of Kontakt which should load the old project files just fine. If you install it as a...

    Impact Soundworks Super Audio Cart

    Hi Lance, Lead Developer for Super Audio Cart here. It is not possible for any facility in Kontakt scripting to cause crashes in digital audio workstations. It is a closed ecosystem with a curated and limited set of interactions with the Kontakt engine. The snapshot functionality is also a...

    Kontakt/Logic can't find my new sample drive even though it has the same name?

    What do you mean by "name"? The only thing that matters is the drive letter.

    VST's in Standalone Mode over VEP

    I'm not sure how this would work. Wouldn't you have to bounce your mixdowns in real-time?

    How much do you pay attention to voicing?

    Voicing defines how the music is going to feel for me. So I guess to me, it's just ingrained in how I look at the music I'm writing. But I know for un-trained musicians or hobbyists, they're adding layers of sounds together without consciously observing what registers each of their voices are...

    How necessary is it to learn sampling/kontakt?

    I don't think learning how to sample is at all necessary for a composer. It's cool if they can do it, and they may be able to tap into a unique source of sounds that no one else has access to, but this isn't even remotely something I would consider an essential value of musicianship. Composers...

    Kontakt 6

    If you want to keep up with new 3rd party products then get it. Developers are not going to stick with 5.7/5.8 as the market continues to move. Speaking firsthand as a developer, the amount of improvements NI has made to the experience and difficulty of developing complex products in 6 is...

    I don't understand the issue with the box? You get a serial number and you can download all your Komplete products from Native Access. NI has been distributing products this way for a while now.

    Running into problems with this song and could use some advice.

    Just from a first listen, you have really boomy heavy drums. That's going to eat a lot of frequency room. Notice how the BB track just has some low plucks and keeps it articulate and clear. You have to decide what's more important to you; big boomy hits or dense low register clarity. You can't...

    Spitfire Chamber Strings vs Studio Strings PRO

    Replicating good room tones lies in the gear you have available. Definitely convolution based stuff with stellar early reflections are a must. But it's nice when the library just has this part taken care of for you; this is coming from a guy who only uses close mics in his mixes, in every single...

    Checking Out: Shreddage 3 Virtual Guitar Instrument Line by Impact Soundworks

    Hey Don, awesome reviews. Just wanted to quickly point out, in the written review it says Abyss is Drop-G; it actually is Drop-A, this was a printing mistake in the manual.

    Very nerdy, low-level question about conditions in KSP ...

    I have created some of the most demanding Kontakt scripts on the market right now, such as Super Audio Cart's modulation matrix. It took a lot of optimization not to break people's older computers with just one instance. None of it happened in small little areas like changing orders of...

    Very nerdy, low-level question about conditions in KSP ...

    Short circuit evaluation is a well documented computer science concept. It goes left to right after all other precedences are taken care of. Your highest resolution of timing is microseconds in realtime with KSP timer. You will find that optimizing short circuit conditions will not save you...

    Does blip-note trick work inside on release callback?

    Probably nowhere. But that's all you really need to know: 1. Make a ui_switch (made an error before, has to be a switch). 2. Go to Kontakt Automation tab and drag a CC like 122 onto it to map it. This has to be saved in every nki you want to use this scripting technique in. 3...

    Amp Simulators for Virtual Guitars

    Mercuriall Reaxis and the Neural DSP's Fortin Nameless are top quality high gain amplifiers (Go Fortin NTS if you want really aggressive modern metal). If you want to go cheap, Kuassa has good quality amp sims. Caliburn is a Marshall for a more classic rock sound, Creme is a Mesa Boogie. For...

    Does blip-note trick work inside on release callback?

    @olmerk Blip notes don't work in the RCB. Use a hidden ui_switch attached to a CC instead. Use set_controller() to fire the callback.

    Which reverbs can turn off ER?

    I think absolutely you should only work with one reverb. I use SH in my template on two sends (one for ER and one for LR) but I always make sure they are set to the same exact configuration and source IR. This way the send levels are merely to control blend but it's still the continuous reverb...

    Which reverbs can turn off ER?

    Seventh Heaven is an emulation of the Bricasti M7 with a Fusion-IR approach. Included is the ability to control the blend of ER and LR. Naturally you can go 100% LR to remove the ER entirely.

    How do you use Your reverb on orchestral samples?

    If you double a signal, it doesn't phase cancel. The phase correlates. This is basic signal theory. Perhaps you should ask questions instead of conjecturing on something you haven't tried or seen for yourself. I'd be happy to explain how everything works in further detail. I am not happy to see...

    How do you use Your reverb on orchestral samples?

    For reverbs, I use Seventh Heaven, a fantastic Fusion-IR emulation of the Bricasti M7. So it's convolution based, but lets you manage reflections, decay time, and other neat parameters. My template is set up like this: 1. All tracks by default are set to output to a Null bus (-inf dB, so...

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

    It really is understated how powerful the "Import Song Data" feature in Studio One. You can import entire chunks of other projects (or if you're clever, a "source" project template) complete with bus routings and fx chains. For example I can start an empty project to doodle whatever, then...

    Aiva - Artificial Intelligence Composition: beta starting today

    Improving Elec Guitar Sound

    This is not correct, Shreddage libraries are recorded DI. There isn't processing done beyond our normal sample editing processes such as normalization and noise reduction. The quality of your DI signal is greatly dependent on the quality of your pickups. For example if you listen to a set of...

    Shreddage 3 Stratus - FREE VERSION

    Hi, I've never heard of this workflow and my demos use a single instance for leads. So it is not necessary to do this method you lay out. It simply takes an understanding of how guitar players play melodies, and working that into pitch bend and mod wheel for vibrato (or aftertouch if you prefer).

    Cinematic Studio Brass?

    I'm always a huge fan of Alex Wallbank and this library does not disappoint, and lived up to the other ones in the series. Great sound, easy to use, and doesn't consume half of my sample drive.

    How I Enhance Cinematic Studio Strings For A Closer, Crisper Sound (It's Not Eq, Compression, etc)

    Very interesting trick. It's worth mentioning, for those that have it, that Cinematic Studio Solo Strings is programmed & cut at a 1:1 behavior with its big ensemble brother. If you duplicate the midi of CSS into CSSS instruments to layer them, and then bring the solos slightly more front in the...

    SHREDDAGE 3 STRATUS - Now available from Impact Soundworks!!!

    It doesn't help that the name of the first Shreddage 2 series guitar is Shreddage 2, so let's clarify this some more. :) If you want to buy Shreddage 3 Stratus, it is the full price of Stratus ($119 + $30 KP serial) minus $20 if you own any Shreddage 2 series guitars. In other words, Stratus is...

    SHREDDAGE 3 STRATUS - Now available from Impact Soundworks!!!

    Hi Polka, I'm not sure if that's fair to say at all.

    I find this library tailored to my exact needs for the kind of music I write. The sample quality and expression are wonderful. As others have said, it handles clusters very well.

    Yes, the same thing you had to do when purchasing the library.

It does not overwrite and share the same...

    Query regarding this string attack sound

    Those are very easily fake. And to get that kind of sound in samples, what you might look for in libraries is an articulation called "marcato". For example, Cinematic Studio Strings lets you select marcato, and then still play passages with legato (it will do legato scripting on all notes...

    Comparing VSL Trumpet in C, VSL Trumpet in Bb and VSL Cornet

    A score doesn't tell you everything, nor is it a good instruction manual for using samples, because samples are limited in use compared to what a real player would do if he saw an equivalent notation. Just in the very beginning of your clip, this is apparent. The notes are bleeding into each...
