    Massive X is Out!

    Ah, ok. Yes. The best satire is close enough to that which it is satirising to cause potential confusion to those not paying enough attention. Bravo

    Massive X is Out!

    8 years is plenty of time to wait before taking advantage of new features. It seems strange to me that those who have more recent machines that cannot be upgraded to such old processors are not blaming their system builder rather than their software suppliers.

    Massive X is Out!

    XP support ended more than 5 years ago. There are lots of reasons not to be doing that which are unrelated to Massive X.

    Massive X is Out!

    Is this the first VI to require AVX? Is it going to become a trend?

    Massive X is Out!

    Houston, we have a problem... My CPU won't support Massive X. Finally time to upgrade, it seems. I have been holding off for a very long time, to be fair.

    Writing for choir?

    Choirs like to sing words. Don't use oooos and aaaahs just because that's what's in your sample library.

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    I seem to have drawn some fire from some quarters. Ho hum... There is no witch hunt. There is just a simple enquiry about potential astroturfing. Mike Greene is looking at it so there is no need for further back and forth. Some may not be concerned about that subject and that's fine. Others are...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    @sostenuto, I am afraid we will have to agree to disagree. The potential use of astroturfing by a developer is very much on point to a commercial post from that developer. Anyway, Mike has moved these comments to their own thread which makes sense while it gets resolved. Let's see where it...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Ok, so no negativity, toxicity etc. just straightforward questions to Sample Logic / APD. 1. Do you or your employees, associates or friends use user accounts on VI-Control to promote your deals or products either directly or with "enthusiastic comments or reviews etc." without it being made...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Sample logic, I rather object to being called a pot-stirrer by you here. I am one of your customers and have no connection to any sellers on VI-control. There is no negative energy. I don't believe what I have asked is toxic or ill-spirited. Quite the opposite. I simply want to know whether...

    Is it a good investment to have Keyscape alongside Omnisphere

    Obviously every library has a price, so value is going to be personal. I really like Keyscape. The keyboards spread the whole spectrum of usefulness from every-day (custom Rhodes) to “Er.... ok” (toy piano thing). The main Grand is ok but not earth-shattering. The Omnisphere patches based on...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Fleer I thought it quite clear. You are still very much in the incentivised-to-be-enthusiastic camp in my book. You have not answered my original question, only spoke around it. You receive free stuff for support problems (not my experience at all). You haven’t said that that is the only reason...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    The issue for me, is that somebody receiving a free product because of the positive review that they give to a company is likely to show a different level of enthusiasm to somebody who has paid full price. Their comments are in a different category. I try to make judgements about purchases...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Fleer, Thanks for the reply. I am not going to press you any further, other than to note that you did not answer my question. You mention having received free product from suppliers at some point relating to your trouble over technical-support-related problems, but not whether you have received...

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Fleer, Thanks for clarifying and apologies if I am being overly suspicious. Can you confirm that you are not in any way recompensed for your enthusiasm either in money, discounts or free product from the developers that you list and APD/VSTBuzz?

    @mikegreene. Is it part of your policy for the sellers here, especially advertisers not to do this?

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    So, Fleer, are you a shill? If so, of course, you don't matter that much. You are perhaps just somebody's fake email account. Your continued posting here, however, speaks volumes for the integrity of AudioPluginDeals. Why would they want to sully their brand in this way?

    APD/SL *** Drama Spinoff

    Fleer, Are you in some way connected with audioplugin deals? Your comments on this forum seem disproportionately dedicated to rather over-enthusiastic endorsement of their offers. If you are doing that because you work for them or are friends with them, you should say so clearly.

    Timpani library?

    Just because samples can do it, doesn't mean musicians can.

    I speak from recent experience on the other side of the glass. If you are going to ask real human people to perform the lines you have written for your sampler with just their bodies or just their bodies and real analogue instruments have a really good read of the orchestration guides for all...

    Is there still a big market for private samples? Are these companies doing lots of private jobs behind the scenes or has the quality of the commercial libraries killed that business?

    Kontakt 6, sampler in the cold?

    Spitfire's tool seems to be way behind Kontakt in every important area, other than "style" if that's your thing. If this is what Hans has been hiding from us all this time, it appears to be just smoke and mirrors... I'd much prefer to have the Spitfire choir in Kontakt, for instance. The...

    Kontakt 6, sampler in the cold?

    Agreed. Falcon is definitely behind in many areas. Yes, there are lots of developers working with Kontakt. Yes. Kontakt 6 does things they want. It still doesn't look like enough to me to bring the big devs back into the fold which is a shame. This is doubtless related to the costs of licenses...

    Kontakt 6, sampler in the cold?

    It's definitely NI's game to win or lose and all the other players are amateurs. The alternatives lack proper resource management and are limited to each company's own libraries by design. Many have other flaws. Spitfire seem to be releasing a different version for each library. Vienna's license...
