    How to draw attention?

    Here's an example of what I'd do with the first one: https://instaud.io/private/e1db870ffe1fff896047a0e553421725bf2b7ea2 (Assuming you want to make it orchestral) And that'd be the basic/rushed version, following the constraints of the original pretty closely with some alterations/re-purposing...

    A sample library wiki?

    If you check the Chamber Strings in V2 for example, the articulations are already categorised like that. That's why I suggested an articulation field that uses the arts as tags or filters (existing) and a simple text one to list them as patches/playing styles along with Dyn layers and RRs...

    Best bang for your buck: fresh start Orchestral libraries?

    Hello, dear mortal, you're in luck. You can pick my wisdom. If you wanna practise orchestration I'd say ensembles instantly go out of the window. You can follow the simple approach posted above, but depends how dirty you want your hands to get and how experienced you already are. You can still...

    A sample library wiki?

    That's what I'm trying to get at and figure out. It seems it's hard to decide on what should be hard-coded and what should be freely input (albeit, maybe with some guidelines or a format that will naturally be adopted along the course). Should "pizz" be a field? Admittedly, this is cleaner to...

    Windows 10 silliness

    I despise Win10, if not for anything else other than that it treats you like some child that doesn't know how to handle their system and just forces its rules on you. Trying to do everything while doing nothing consistently or particularly well (aiming for lowest common denominator). You'd hope...

    A sample library wiki?

    May I suggest an appetizer before that articulation list? :cautious: Still, should probably have filters for what is deemed more universal or necessary, the ultra detail should be left to editors I feel. Not sure how to work it out or limit it other than starting to input some data and see what...

    A sample library wiki?

    It could be set separately for synths, have a mirror field for synths. For example, the Articulations field could be renamed to Presets in a separate database or just use the same field and rename to "Arts/Presets". Maybe a totally separate "Patches/Presets" field that works for both. And then...

    Multiband Limiter?

    Try a gate/de-esser (unlikely to work, but may end up usable, depending on controls) or something like Izotope RX (spectral editor to delete or reduce a very specific region).

    A sample library wiki?

    I think I prefer the middle-of-the-road approach. Make the most requested/common attributes default categories and leave details up to editors. Dev - ✓ (Grouped category / Bio + Historical data left to editors [text description/dev bio page optional, but dev name should be categorised]) -...

    Maybe the reception stuff is a discussion for later. The issue with the subjective stuff is that since anyone can edit, it's possible to be tempted to remove negative feedback or get emotional or prop something up etc. Comments would need moderation in case they get spammed, not necessarily...

    A sample library wiki?

    That'll probably be better as a tag than a general category. So, for example, you have a string lib that falls under Strings / Sections and it has tags like "bartok", "pizz", "chamber", "medieval" etc. Then maybe you can have a tag cloud or a search just for tags. Then you can add what you think...

    A sample library wiki?

    The way I went about that in V1 for SCS was to include the release date of the original volume and then the one for the re-release (along with a link to threads and the transition announcement). For Symphonic Brass, I used the release of BML Horns Vol. 1, then skipped to the consolidated SSB...

    A sample library wiki?

    The spreadsheet definitely seems workable, but it will be harder to add multiple source links, linkbacks, categories, extended descriptions, videos, artworks, links to demos, narrowing down of categories, filtering etc. The site map/folder format seems more usable if you wanna go per developer...

    I also added Chamber Strings and it hit me that it would be nice to also add the rooms... Added the ilok requirement to HS before. These will probably have to be grouped. Also, Spitfire Sample Player will need to be added, as well as OT (eventually) and UVI (these would fall under 'Other' now)...

    The basic version posted here before has a revisions/versions button with edits. I added HS and Zimmer Strings to get a feel for it. Trying some edits. Fair use? If you want to copy it, you can copy it from the original anyway. Maybe start with something like Google Drive and decide later...

    Maybe make it a bit more streamlined? Seems a bit random as it is. Not sure where to start. It probably needs a By Year category too. Put some training wheels on it in order to figure out the format. It's pretty overwhelming when looking at the blank page, haha. Issues I immediately notice: Dev...

    Dragonfly Reverb - Very Nice Free Reverb

    I really like how it has so many parameters to feed into each other and add movement. Had also thought about the Room feeding into Hall thing and sat down and did a test: https://instaud.io/private/e4165cd0a4ce500fc5c0fea77df17db9300cfa1c (Fairly Dry > Room [for some dimension and movement] >...

    R8 my mix pretty please

    It all felt a bit tamed, but mostly brass. (Though now that I listened to it again, it feels quite ok in the mid-highs while still feeling like it needs some more separation between sections somehow, maybe more agressive panning/widening or wider resonances; and also feels a bit choked, probably...

    Spitfire Studio Brass Core - Worth it?

    That's why I added the little comment about the timbre. It seems a bit weird to me (also considering the ensembles are combos of the solo ones, not separate unison recordings and the mutes are simulations), but I appreciate all the extra options it has. And there's also this...

    Spitfire Studio Brass Core - Worth it?

    Personally I'd then definitely go for cinebrass for a general use library... Also pay attention to the ensemble sizes and character/tone. Studio Brass seems more like an add-on library to me. To add some quirkiness or different style/sound or some detail. SStB will also probably be up for sale...

    R8 my mix pretty please

    1. Make the melody stand out more, too many lines, too crowded, more focal points 2. Automate tempo 3. Make entrances and exits of sections smoother/a bit more dynamic/lines need more movement (though the samples are probably limiting you there) 4. Maybe add some slight stabilising compression...

    Dragonfly Reverb - Very Nice Free Reverb

    Dragonfly Hall Reverb > Small Clear Hall Preset > Settings: Maybe the decay was at 1.3 or something, but that's it pretty much. I had a feeling it did slightly increase the quality, but not anything massive. A hidden option is fine. You could also have an option to oversample only in...

    Why so much hate against USB security dongles (like iLok and Steinberg key)

    I can certainly largely agree with the perspective that it's not maybe so much the dongle itself, but the policies that surround it. In essence you're still limited but it can be made palatable, especially considering many people make money from it and don't just toy around, so it can be a...

    Well, sad about the crackles but it's fine. Thanks for your work anyway.

    Dragonfly Reverb - Very Nice Free Reverb

    That one was in Reaper 5.977. Verb version 1.9.5 (both Room and Hall; I think Wander doesn't do it in Room, Oversample does). Still happens in 5.978. Wander does it too as does Late level, but way less (late mostly with really fast movements). Worst is pre-delay and then size. I just happened to...

    That's commendable. The plebs welcome you with open arms. :roflmao: More information is good in my book. I'm sure most people here can make up their mind about whether it's good/bad or useful to them by just looking at the examples, no matter what the commentator is saying (which I generally...

    Make my own Cubase iLok?

    It supposedly makes the software more resource-heavy because it needs to run check routines. Other than that, I guess the possibility to brick your programs if it for some reason won't run properly. For others it's a matter of principle (punishing usability, freedom to manage licenses, possibly...

    Dragonfly Reverb - Very Nice Free Reverb

    Nice, it can sound pretty massive. Just a couple of things: 1. Sudden/constant movements in pre-delay, size and wet levels cause clicks and crackles; pretty sure it's not CPU (~0,5% use at the time), it just seems the plugin doesn't like sudden changes. It also shows up in the render, not just...

    Sample Library Depreciation thread

    That's true, but I also try to keep myself from falling in the other trap that all of it is unjustified or useless or whiny for the sake of it. I make a conscious effort to see if there's something in everything I can keep, if I choose to engage with it.

    Sample Library Depreciation thread

    Some good points here. To add: Other than resale, there are also the right to repair (if dev goes out of business should they be obligated to make the product available in a recoverable, workable state? example: ilok with encrypted samples?), ownership (do you actually just license sounds or do...

    How to make my tracks louder?

    I think the main issue here is EQ. Then, inconsistencies in volume between sections of the track which are at similar dynamic (most lower), some volume inconsistency between sections (brass needs a slight boost or to push the dynamic timbre a bit more, not sure if you have it at full dyn...

    Trumpets in trailer music

    Splinter Cell Double Agent has some great textures. XCOM also has some nice hybrid. Some quite edited/effected brass in this too (Quantum Break OST): And another very recent one (Captive State OST): They did some more out there things with the LCO brass. Rob is amazing. Do yourself a...

    Trumpets in trailer music

    Yeah, didn't want to make it overbearing but I like this album on the whole; and especially the spanish style tracks. Very good writing and orchestrations. Good to have a feel for this stuff anyway (also pay attention to the contrast, for example sustains when the harpsichord or the violins are...

    Trumpets in trailer music

    Here's a few examples off the top of my head: Doubling horns and counterpoint. Apart from more power, it gives you a nice stereo stage spread. In this specific one, they also add some mariachi vibes. Doubling horns again (+ accents). Melody doubling (first violins, trombones, horns) +...

    Con Moto violin B - can it do fast passages ?

    Btw, I forgot to mention it can do some nice sustains too (with legato off or not). Example with a combo of sustain + legato on lead: https://instaud.io/private/e2701af4009bb5bf60de253005c42d62ec9658a8

    Con Moto violin B - can it do fast passages ?

    To be fair, most of what I pointed out is really hard for most libraries (especially if using just sustain patches). This one just has a very specific use-case. Half the reason I bought it is I liked the sound and approach, the other half is I wanted to support the company to make more expansive...

    Con Moto violin B - can it do fast passages ?

    Con Moto

    Loved the sound and approach and couldn't resist the intro pricing, even if it's just legato sustains. Not quite sure what I'll do with it but hopefully this will motivate Jasper to produce more goodies. Waiting to see what will come next. Will try it in a bit. Edit: Ok, played with it for a...
