    FluffyAudio - Simple Cello - A lovely lyrical cello for just 49$/€ Intro Price at 39$/39€

    :) And I knew why I loved the reverb. The Burbank big stage is my standart reverb on EVERYTHING. It makes things sound classical... woody and "chamber-y"... if you don´t "pump up the Bank, just pump it up!" :rofl:

    FluffyAudio - Simple Cello - A lovely lyrical cello for just 49$/€ Intro Price at 39$/39€

    Very nice music, CGR... but why does the cello player sit 60 feet in the back of the gym? :whistling: Joke aside: much too much reverb on him for my taste. The reverb is good though. What is it?

    FluffyAudio - Simple Cello - A lovely lyrical cello for just 49$/€ Intro Price at 39$/39€

    Hello guys, hello Paolo This one has a wonderfull tone. It has everything I would ever need from a cello. The big disadvantage? Why the heck didn´t you come 5 years EARLIER? ;-) Unfortunately the only instrument that I already got in several great editions is the cello... and I don´t need...

    Ah okay, thanks for the info. A pity. There are other gregorian choir libraries on the market but yours has definitly a noble and majestic sound.

    The Performers Anonym Gregorian Choir - Available Now for €69

    If the ahs and ohs have a sufficient range I am in. Because the sound is great and I would use them just for chords or gregorian lines.

    The Performers Anonym Gregorian Choir - Available Now for €69

    Thank you Bansi. I am very very disappointed :crying: . Still I want to make music myself, not let other sing prerecorded phrases :-( Though the sound is gorgeous I have to admit. But the concept is just too limiting and not my cup of tea.

    Berlin Strings First Chairs vs CSSS?

    Another point: I immediately after download tried to lower the volume of the staccato against the legato in capsule. But seemingly you only can lower the volume of all articulations together? That wouldn´t make much sense....? Or am I just plain blind?

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Hey Daddy-John...ahhh... John-O!! :whistling:;) Hope you are well too! Thank you. Yes I would create new presets as I did in the old player. Generally I like the modern new look and the orchestral IRs are chosen really well. I would have paid for them alone because they really fit and work...

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Can anyone using the Synchron player give a hint how to stack sounds? For example a bassoon with an english horn? In the old Vienna Instrument player it was so easy but here I just don´t see it?

    How do people deal with CSS delay?

    Manually placing every note with the advanced legato surely is the best method. Choosing the classical legato patches and just playing along is the easiest. So do I and I am totally satisfied with the result.

    EW Spaces II - Anyone upgrading?

    Whatever I try in my armada: in 95% of all times I am coming back to Spaces when it is about finding the right orchestral reverb. For solo instruments choices may vary since they sometimes have special needs.

    NI Symphony Strings-The small sections

    Very kind of you Jake. Would perhaps also kick others on the other side of the fence as long as summer sales are going on. And If I get weak and buy them I´ll tell you :-) But don´t wait : could be in some miuntes or so :cool:

    NI Symphony Strings-The small sections

    Hi everybody I am interested in upgrading the NI strings from Komplete Ultimate to their full version. The big strings sound great but I got enough libraries for that. I would do it just to have the smaller sections. Unfortunately I only find demos of the divisi strings in polyphonic mode, when...

    Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 features

    Thanks for reminding me of the last intro sale days: I watched your video and...bought it. And what should I say: last thing I thought I needed was a new comp or limiter, but these are among the best i own. And they are eye candy... I´ll learn more about the update in the next days....

    Strezov Sampling presents AFFLATUS Chapter 1 // 1.2 Update feat. 18GB of new sample content

    Same for me. I also find it marketingwise a bit "unlucky" that two quite different sides of musicmaking are mixed and only available as a bundle. In my music I would never ever use something like "Spider strings" which might be paradise on earth for film musicians who don´t find such artics...

    Legato Strings comparison - one phrase, eight test runs

    Very helpful comparison, thank you. When will the undisclosed be revealed?

    Smooth jazz/chill out piano.

    I also found the sound to be outstanding. A pity it is not in Ultimate yet...and I just bought Ultimate .-)

    Cinematic Studio Strings - new sample library from the creators of CS2 - out now!

    Jake: listen to the sound differences, I find they are huge. There is no question of "which is better, but "which is closest to my sound ideal". CSS has a very distinct romantic "50ies" charm and CS2 is for the big cinema, broad and hollywood-like. I don´t use the delayed versions of CSS at...

    Kirk Hunter Diamond confusions

    Please always remember that it is an old outdated lib that you get for a minimum price. I bought Concert Strings II for the same price and got a more modern, sorted library with an interface, which really allows to taylor the lib as I need it. And I use it very often. Alone the possibility to...

    Japanese Shinobue Flute VST?

    You will get 90% of that sound using a indian bansuri or egyptian ney. Shinobue seems to be the japanese equivalent to the Bansuri and only playing style is more of a shakuhachi. But that´s up to your playing skills to imitate this on the keyboard.

    Sonex Orchestra - any experience?

    Hi guys... I just found this through an ad in a vst news online magazine. Never heard of it, no snippet of a single instrument to be found. No names, no address, no nothing. fraud? Anyone ever bought from them? https://www.sonex.store/en/index.php?route=product/category&path=18

    Cinematic Studio Strings

    I am working in cubase and even made a midi transform script that cuts the upper 20% of the dynamic and uses the whole modwheel range only for values of 1-95. And I still rarely go far over the mid position... I noticed that the biggest differences between what I hear in romantic films and on...

    10 violins legato patches compared (REVISED)

    Thank you for the comparison. I am astonished though: most of them sound the same to me or very very similar. When I test the different libraries parked on my drive though the differences are HUGE..... Note. It is early in the morning and first coffee is in but not yet effective. Ears are on...

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    I found another drawback of piano-like keyboards today: I definitly need octave switches. Often. I noticed it when I was browsing today for midi controllers as you also suggested :-)

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    I tested it today: a worthy hulk of keyboard this is! :) But it got the heaviest action of all keyboards I tested so far :eek: I will not be able to play with this quickly because my hands really are a bit weakish and I play lots of grace notes in my melodies. That would be the right one for...

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    Thank you for the tip with the M-Audio: indeed it gets only great reviews. I will wait till I can test one in our store. And I need to measure the height, it also is quite "thick" and I have to make shure it will fit. But I will definitly give it a closer look.

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    I did not buy the KC88 but could test it in our store. Definitly too heavy. A88 was a great one, but: no wheel :-( There once was a company which offered a single assignable touch controller strip with usb connector. Would have been the perfect match for a clavinova or an Kawai ES 110 (great...

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    Thank you Daryl. But no wheel and i love wheel. And "amazona" test (online magazine in german) says "for piano players, not so for synth soli since weighting is quite hard".So probably too heravy for my small and untrained hands....

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    Thank you Tracy. The mBk 88 from Akai would have been my other choice. Unfortunately both are very high/thick and would not fit where the keyboard has to be placed: halfway under my monitor/hardware shelf which has a attached mini "sub"shelf for the computer keyboard , like a drawer. Monitor...

    Same old Question : Which Masterkeyboard ?

    Hi guys Since my CME Z-Key 88 translates my velocity very sloppily, and the whole midrange seems to be missing I am on the watch for a working masterkeyboard. I am working in Europes biggest music store but guess? I don´t find anything suitable. The best ones would be some electric pianos we...
