    Soniccouture: 50% Off Everything. It's all over now.

    Got Sheng Khaen Sho via you guys' sale last week for €65. Only to find it for €45 on Best Service's site, a few days after... :emoji_upside_down: Ah well. Was looking to get that library at this time, and suddenly there was a sale, so I can't be disatisfied.

    Versatile Choir

    While I don't think it's sound is very good without soaking it in reverb, the word-builder does lend Eastwest Hollywood Choir great flexiblity.

    Orange Tree?

    I've got their 'Mesawinds', 'Angelic Harp', and 'Angelic Zither' libraries. The former two I use regularly, the latter was more a 'thingy' I bought alongside the other two and have only really used once. Nonetheless, all three are great, and haven't regretted buying them for a moment. The...

    8dio Acoustic Nylon Guitar on sale -- your thoughts?

    A few months back they had a sale on the Bazantar, also for €38. And after playing with it for a while, I liked it... But I was happy I didn't pay full price (€198) for it. I'd have been miffed if I had paid even ½ of the full price. It's much the same here. I like it. I didn't have a decent...

    Do you believe in the supposed powers of 432hz tuning?

    Well, all I'll say is that the moment I tuned to 432hz MY ENTIRE LIFE IMPROVED AND THUS THE WORLD! Take that for what its worth.

    Orchestral Tools "groundbreaking" announcements

    I've been wanting companies to do this selling sepperate parts of libraries for so long. Could make a real difference for someone like me.

    Solo Vocals

    There's also ERA II's Vocal Codex. Eastwest is coming with a Voices of Opera this winter -- January, Febuary? -- which consists of a solo soprano and solo tenor. Organic Voices vol. 1: Solo Opera by Organic Samples is only €30 right now. Soundiron has a similar library, Voice of Rapture...

    Post Your Black Friday Haul Pictures HERE!

    I bought Spitfire's Skalia Harp. Which was problematic because I'd intended to buy Harp Swarm -- had been mulling it over for a few days, went and pulled the trigger, aaand... oops. Went too fast, didn't check properly. So now waiting for my money to be refunded in early december and hoping...

    Which one would you recommend: Embertone's Intimate Strings/Spitfire Solo Strings

    I've been looking for a great solo strings library, and it's come down to these two for me. Ignoring Embertone's Joshua Bell Violin for a moment (which no one should ever do, really, because oh my god it's gorgeous) as it's €200 vs €375 for a whole section. Right now, I'm leaning heavily to the...

    How to make a children's choir as airy as possible

    You could try this free plugin called Roth-AIR. As you may guess from the name it's designed to add air. Even has a big button with 'Air' on it in the middle of the interface. I've used it a fair few times. https://www.kvraudio.com/product/roth-air-by-rothmann

    United Strings of Europe?

    I didn't know this. As far back as I can remember, though, I've set the strings up like that. When I load, for example, Eastwest Hollywood Strings, and I hear basses all the way to the right... I absolutely hate it. It irks me so much. It just overwhelms one side. So out of balance. I've always...

    Spitfire HZ Percussion: Worth the Price?

    You could take a look at Saga (https://redroomaudio.com/product/saga-acoustic-trailer-percussion/), it's €149, compared to €399 (€599 for the pro) of HZP. See if that floats your boat.

    Orange Tree Samples 2018 Group Buy - 60% OFF NOW!!

    I got Mesawinds, Angelic Harp through this deal and threw in Angelic Zither for good measure. Angelic Harp might be my favourite harp, now. It's exactly what I've been looking for: a harp that isn't too 'plucky' -- or becomes so at higher velocities. I'm loving it.

    Fluffy Audio 30% Sales until August 15th (ALL LIBRARIES)

    Steinberg Iconica

    It might be a bit pricey for a beginner, but I do think it would be very suited for those only just starting out but looking for a full orchestra.

    Any experiences with the EastWest CC Hard drive?

    How do you mean? If I'm going to get it, I would only use it for the Eastwest libraries that are on there (and future Eastwest releases). That what you mean?

    Any experiences with the EastWest CC Hard drive?

    I'm thinking of getting it so I can clear a whole bunch of space off my current HDD, and so I don't have to download 83GB libraries like Stormdrum 3, etc. Only thing is, when I googled the specific hard drive they use, it didn't exactly show great user reviews -- lots of it stopping to work...

    SPITFIRE - Spitfire Solo Strings NEW Virtuoso Violin Total Performance Patch

    Likes: Detailed sound; shorts sound great and rich; harmonics and flautandos sound really nice. Consistent articulations; no articulations missing on say the viola (poor violas have suffered enough). Full quartet/quintet. I might actually be able to afford it. Dislikes -- or perhaps...

    Children's choirs?

    8Dio's Liberis sounds (I don't own it) fantastic, from what I've heard. It is a bit more expensive that the other two, though (€498). https://8dio.com/instrument/liberis-epic-childrens-choir/

    I blame Hans Zimmer

    This is very recognizable! :roflmao: I've had, like, entire roundtable discussion with musician/composers I admire when taking walks or cycling around. I remember having a great conversation with Einar Selvik once. It'd be very odd if he remembers it too, though -- and cause for scientific study.

    Looking for good solo vocal libraries

    I have EW Voices of Passion, EW Voices of Empire and @TARI's ERA II Medieval Legends: Vocal Codex. Of the three, I'd recommend the latter. Though obviously it's not classical solo voices, if that's is what you're after.
