    Kontakt 6 crash during batch resave

    Mine did not continue. My solution now has been to start the batch resave over and over again, because most of the time it went a bit further until it finally finished.

    Musical Sampling / Best Service serial code problem

    I bought something last year. I had to place an order on Musical Sampling homepage and use the code from Bestservice as discount code during checkout, which brings the price down to zero. Not sure if it still works like that or something has changed meanwhile.

    Kontakt 6 crash during batch resave

    Hello all, I experience crashes when doing a batch resave with Kontakt 6. I tried with different libraries. Does anyone see this too or have a solution for it? One more dumb question I never dared to ask. After batch resaving the library, it can be moved to other disk locations without doing a...

    Hyperion Strings Elements has arrived!

    Ah ok. Thank you. You just opted for a different default compared to Hyperion Strings Micro. And the old Hyperion Strings Micro is called INIT in the preset listing. I just wondered while comparing the differences :)

    Hyperion Strings Elements has arrived!

    @nathantboler I have a question. Steps to reproduce: 1) When I load the ensemble patch all instruments are crammed up in the middle (and it also sounds like this). You can see this in the Space tab (it shows INIT at the top preset selection). 2) After pressing the arrow to the right it...

    More notation: key changes

    In general both is possible:change the keys as done in your first post, or using accidentals. If using accidentals, use flats if the key you are in uses flats. Or use sharps when the key you are in uses sharps. So in your second example it would be better to use "a flat" instead of "g#".

    Library Spotlight - Studio Strings

    Ah. I think indeed the patches have been created with the core version and they will not work with pro, because core/pro are different libraries from Kontakt's point of view.

    What strings lib for mocking up this piece?

    "Venice Modern Strings" could be suited for this very well too :).

    VSL SE Vol 5: Dimension Strings 1+2

    As I neither have full Dimension Strings nor the Special Edition 5 I can't comment on the sound myself other than listening to the walkthrough video. Maybe it can work because they recorded all instruments simultaneously.

    VSL SE Vol 5: Dimension Strings 1+2

    The section sizes for the strings in the different volumes differ. Vol1: Orchestral Strings (14/10/8/6) Vol2: Chamber Strings (6/4/3/2) Vol3: Appassionata Strings (20/14/12/10) Vol4: No strings in Vol. 4 Vol5: Dimension Strings (8/8/6/6/4) One big difference is: It was recorded as section, but...

    Berlin Orchestra Inspire or Palette Symphonic Sketchpad?

    You have to decide if you want each instrument layed out as single patch or if mainly ensemble patches are ok for you. Of course in every of the products we can search long enough and find something missing. For "Ensemble" all around libraries I'd consider: a) BOI Has mainly ensemble patches...

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    ? As far as I understand Sid tries to layer two different instruments. These "Parallel Mode" button let's you mix/xfade slots, but these slots always belong to the same instrument (for example combines sustain and staccato for the marcato articulation). I have not found a way to load two...

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    You can just set one of the 9 outputs by clicking the output channel. Default is "1 (Stereo)". Now you just have to activate the other channels inside your DAW. What DAW are you using? It is different for each DAW and does not depend on the Vienna Synchron Player itself. In Cubase there is a...

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Every library has its own weaknesses and strengths. Most important thing is follow your ears, in what you like. One thing to think about is: if you want the instruments as ensemble patches only or as indiviual sections. I have added a comment on each library below regarding the strings...

    Spitfire Audio Updates

    If updates are available depends on when you got your download (or did your last update), which is different for anyone. I agree probably the May update is what this was about.

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Indeed this is an additional algorithmic reverb. The send knob for this is beside the impulse response button. But I never saw this one active by default in the Special Edition. It is always set to "-inf" (no guarantee on this, maybe there is a patch that has it activated). The Sychronized...

    Thoughts on Venice Modern Strings?

    :) Glad that you like it. That the Cello counter line is somewhat lagging behind in some of the snippets was my fault :whistling:. Should have corrected it a little bit. I wonder if it would be of interest if I'd come up with something a little bit longer more refined also showing some shorts.

    IK Multimedia Introduces MODO DRUM - Modeled Drums

    The site says: "cymbal sample engine" Also the cymbals have less parameters to tweak (according to the homepage you can tune them up/down). My guess would be the cymbals are sampled. Edit: Ok. No evidence the cymbals have less parameters to tweak, but no menu for the cymbals was shown yet...

    Hollywood Brass + CB or CSB?

    The sustains have very long releases indeed. It helps to reduce the release length on the righthand side of the GUI when legato is disabled. But I agree, the sustains with disabled legato is not where the cinematic studio series shines.

    Hollywood Brass + CB or CSB?

    CSB has rather long release tails. That's for sure. Ah. This works pretty well if you know how to do it: The marcato patch is kind of special. It uses modwheel + velocity for control. On the marcato patch you need to pull the modwheel all the way down to zero for the short notes in between...

    Convo Reverbs - What's the Diff?

    Ah. For a moment forgot about that one :). Probably I was distracted by diving around in the new Synchronized Special Edition :laugh:. Is the spatialisation purely relying on convolution with impulse responses? I have the feeling Vienna MIR Pro is doing a lot more than just convolution under...

    Convo Reverbs - What's the Diff?

    If the convolution reverbs strictly apply the so called "convolution" as defined in mathematics and use the exact same impulse response without any other modifications, the outcome indeed are exactly the same (with slight rounding errors due to different software programming underneath). Except...

    64% Off: Adventure Brass by MusicalSampling

    It is true, it has a lower output volume compared to other brass libraries. As long as the timbre of the instrument goes high all is good, pure volume can be boosted in the DAW if needed. That's maybe because it is expected people playing the Adventure Patches for sketching purposes or live...

    Performance Samples + Musical Sampling libraries as core libraries?

    Performance Samples + Musical Sampling libraries as core libraries?

    After playing a bit with Trailer Strings again, maybe I have to add that the attacks on the long articulations are very pronounced. Probably not that suitable for quieter melodic lines then.

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    Thank you. I just wondered. Not that the EQ is directly applied to the samples. Obviously it is done like in the Epic Orchestra 2.0, it uses the built in EQ of the Synchron Player and you can see as well as alter these settings.

    Synchron-ized Special Edition

    In the EpicOrchestra2.0 (included with Vienna Ensemble Pro) you can see the EQ curves applied to the different instrument patches.

    Performance Samples + Musical Sampling libraries as core libraries?

    I can recommend the Musical Sampling products. To summarize it: Adventure Brass: Very versatile Trailer Brass: more for over the top parts Adventure Strings: feels like the players always dig into the strings, also at lower dynamics. Not really meant for subtle/soft writing. Soaring...

    Download through pulse worked very well. The biggest disadvantage is: Pulse buffers the temporary files to the main system drive and there is no option to change this path (really there should be an option, so that you can point to another disk for these big data files) . Which means you need...
