    Has anyone successfully gotten a refund from Spitfire

    Pause on the "Reply" a little longer next time :sneaky:, and if not, give yourself a little more time to go through your statement.

    Wife argues with me because I don't like the 'trailer' type music she just got

    What's the point of eating a dinky cheeseburger that will make you hungry again 15 minutes later? Because you enjoy that sliver of pleasure.

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    I could definitely see Venice Modern Strings pulling it off splendidly. Very similar vibrato, for instance.

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    Not to mention that the piece itself is absolutely lovely. I love Korzeniowski.

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    I would go with Cinematic Studio Strings + Solo Strings all the way here. Even though I love United Strings of Europe.

    Passionate Flute Passages

    I would include some short and long playable articulations to compliment the phrases. It's always nice to have those options.

    Found it here. It's strange that isn't linked it on the product page itself. http://www.orchestraltools.com/downloads/articulation_guides/Articulation%20Guide%20BPC%20Timpani.pdf

    Once Great, Now Unavailable Libraries?

    Speaking of the Larry Seyer bass, isn't it featured in this old TV ditty by the lovely Jeff Beal?

    Wet libraries

    When it comes to wet libraries, personally I feel only Cinesamples and Alex Wallbank's efforts has nailed the perfect balance between dry and wet signals. Dry enough to be able to coax nimble passages out of it yet still wet enough to retain a nice image of the space it was recorded in.

    Wet libraries

    That's some wildly dramatic inferences there, Jimmy. All I can see is Paul chiming in on how useful and malleable wet samples can be, not acting on behalf of Spitfire to defend any potentially bruised egos.

    14 strings libraries compared

    I was surprised because I was never wowed by any official demos of Iconica.

    14 strings libraries compared

    I must say Iconica came off surprisingly well in this comparison. My favourites: 1: CSS 2: Hollywood Strings 3: Soaring Strings / Adventure Strings

    Cinesamples (Winds) 30% Sale - Worth a Look?

    For some inexplicable reason I left out the bassoon from my CW Core test above, so here's a showcase of the bassoon along with the alto flute & english horn from CW Pro. Close mics, with a ValhallaRoom 2.2 second tail.

    Randy's Celeste is a celesta mixed with a custom DX7 sine wave patch, isn't it?

    Sonokinetic string-phrases + (insert library) for a "full" string palette

    I think you could match those phrases well with Spitfire's symphonic offerings. Chamber Strings, Symphonic Strings, Winds & Brass etc.

    Orchestral library for 1000€

    Anyone dipping their toes into making orchestral mockups these days, on a section-by-section basis, would be a fool not to look at Alex Wallbank's Cinematic Studio series. Top notch quality control and extremely generous loyalty discounts foster a strong and happy customer base.

    Spitfire kepler. . .

    They "accidentally" sent out a WIP patch of Orchestral Swarm way back, as part of viral marketing.

    Spitfire kepler. . .

    Tried it. Seems like an orchestra concept built around the Doppler effect, if the demo is anything to go by.

    Simulating dampening on Timpani samples

    Try going under the hood, duplicating the timpani sample groups, fast forward to the end of the decay and make the groups release triggers?

    Spitfire Appreciation Thread

    Spitfire has made some terrific products in the past that I've found a use for. (Albion Legacy, Andy Findon's Kit Bag Vol 1 & 2) My opinion regarding the management of the company has soured a bit, in the wake of the HZ Strings debacle last year.

    Favourite Solo Woodwinds

    I agree about the oboe vibrato not being pronounced enough, so I decided to try and remedy that. You can actually apply SIPS Vibrato to one of the script tabs under the hood in Kontakt. Try it!

    Favourite Solo Woodwinds

    I used the flute and oboe from CineWinds Core in my latest piece, which also featured strings and piano. The winds appear at around 1:48. Close mic only with external reverb.

    Edit "legato transition" speed in Kontakt?

    Again, select all the groups. And then select any of the Time Machine options in the drop-down menu found in the "Source" area. Then fiddle with the "Speed" knob to your hearts content.

    Edit "legato transition" speed in Kontakt?

    I think changing the groups to Time Machine groups would be the only option for you, then. I'm not sure on the efficacy of that measure, though. Why am I still here when Kontakt master EvilDragon can enlighten you? :laugh: Good luck!
  44. rottoy

    Edit "legato transition" speed in Kontakt?

    You are correct, of course. But short of going into every sample and tweaking the start time, or putting Time Machine on the legato group(s) to tweak the length, I think this is a decent way to tweak the sound of the legato transitions.
  45. rottoy

    Edit "legato transition" speed in Kontakt?

    Go into the group editor and select all the folders that contain the legato transitions (sometimes there's only one, depending on how it's scripted). Then: Fiddle around with the ADSR until you've reached a satisfactory result.

    Venice Modern Strings - Intro offer ends in 24h

    I'm really liking the lush vibrato of those players, the little I could discern from the trailer. Looking forward to the walkthrough and revealing demos! You better have tasty true gelato on this with col legno portamento.
