I'm going crazy. Hours and hours of comparisons.
All these libs have great sweet spots, but to me none of them seem to stand out from the other. I just want a romantic & versatile solo string quartet.
I don't know what to choose.
Now you guys decide.
I'll pull the trigger on the winner of...
Hey, I like the sound of the instrument in 0:03 and then in 0:09, doing beautiful lick
Is that a saxophone? or any other instrument?
Which kontakt library or vst could give me similar effect to this one?
Hey, can you recommend me some guitar vsts. libraries with which I can improvise and make some good sounding solos? (I can also use guitar rig 6 for the sound)
And I don't really mean like hard metal solo or anything like that. I think of guitars with which I can improvise on a beat like that...
Hey everyone! Today’s video is definitely a passion project - the most romantic string library! We’ll do a comparison of my 3 favourite libs for romantic string lines, and feel free to let me know what your choices are, and what you use. Enjoy!
So, I recently encountered an issue while using Kontakt latest update.
One of my libraries (HZ Piano) is not showing anymore in the Libraries tab. I use Kontakt 5 to add libraries and everything works fine everytime, and my HZ Piano library was showing time ago, prior to these...
I’m looking for string quartet library suggestions for StaffPad. What library(s) work well for fast classical writing? Lyrical?
Has anyone had success mixing and matching between Berlin First Chairs, CineStrings Solo, Tina Guo, & Taylor Davis libraries? Will one library suffice or do I...
I don't have hundreds of songs and tracks licensed for TV, movies, or games. Heck, I don't even have a single major placement.
However, I'm blessed to be able to write the music I truly enjoy writing, and help others with their musical endeavours in any capacity.
I grew up listening to Disney...
Hi everyone! I posted a thread a couple weeks ago about what orchestral plugin was best for me, and everyone helped me decide in just a week! :dancedance:
Now I'm here with a more specific question, which one of these do you think is the best vocal plugin for each category?
Hi everyone! Just discovered this forum and I'm finding it very useful! This is my first post ever! :dancer:
I'm not a complete newbie in music, but not a professional either. I just started with orchestra composition (through the Evenant course CM1) and I want some guide on what libraries to...
I'm thinking of purchasing the Spitfire Hans Zimmer Piano. The demos and the overall sound is more than just promising, but I have one question: The library is quite big, so I looked on the Spitfire page, where it says the library is 211gb. My friend who owns the Library claims that...
Hello and happy holidays everyone! :)
I just bought Noire a month ago and I haven't been able to make it a usable library.
Noire itself is a very quiet library so I find myself needing to turn up the volume, and then - I get clipping. Do you have any suggestions for a fix?
Hey everyone - We recently released a new library, Piano Textures - a free virtual instrument for Kontakt featuring an intimately recorded Upright Piano which has been twisted, mangled and warped in to a wide array in cinematic sounds. Featuring 8 custom presets ranging from a warm and delicate...
Sample/ plugin Directory in-progress!
Hi everyone! Hope you’re all doing well! Greetings from Ireland!
I created this a few weekends ago; it struck me that there was a public spreadsheet created of musicians who were available for remote recording, however nothing had yet existed to support...
In your opinion, if I wanted to make a mockup of a piece from the soundtracks of "Dinosaur" by James Newton Howard, "Avatar" by James Horner, or any other soundtrack with a feeling of African rhythms, which libraries would you recommend?
Thanks in advance!
For me, this would probably be...
Room tone and mics from BBCSO
Legato engine, dynamic range and crossfading from Cinematic Studio
GUI from the NI Symphony Series
Articulation management from Orchestral Tools Capsule
Number of articulations similar to SA Chamber Strings (I guess more is always...
I´ve came across these two libraries when looking at some of Alan Meyerson´s videos on YouTube and found out he probably mixed LA Modern Percussion. I´ve got two questions about the libraries.
1) Does anybody use LA Modern Percussion? I´ve partly watched the walkthrough and they seem pretty...
Duel of the epic choirs?! Today I put Storm Choir Ultimate (Strezov Sampling) thru the paces with an iconic choral piece from Star Wars Ep. I, and then I do some detailed comparisons with some other epic choir libraries.
Here's my first screencast for VSL, featuring several BBO Orchestra, Black Eye, Andromeda together with some Synchron Percussion I and Smart Hits. Hope you guys like it!
Feel free to comment. :)
After I composed
I had a very positive feedback and some of guys suggested to make my own Zebra 2 sound library.
Before I start to make it, I wanna say, that it will be top notch and one of the best on the whole market for sure, but it won't be really big, because each sound takes a lot of...
I have many orchestral samples libraries but not so much hybrid ones (HALion Sonic SE...)
I'm looking for some bass (sub-bass) samples like this one @1:35-1:50
I'm on Cubase Pro with Kontakt (Full).
I could probably with some tricks, create my own sound, with Retrologue2, Charlatan, Reaktor...
Good morning friends! If you've ever wondered how Audio Imperia's Nucleus works and what styles it can cover, I just uploaded a video featuring the softer, more intimate side of the library.
I hope this is at least somewhat helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Some of mine are the Con Moto cello, Berlin Strings Sul Tasto cellos, Spitfire Studio Strings pizz bass (based on demos), and Soaring Strings violas. The SCS V1 is also a favourite. I'll mention more later, but what are yours?
Hi everyone. After having carried out some research I realized I can sell my Damage library. I’d want to do it because I’m considering to purchase the ultimate komplete 12 bundle. This will cause a duplication. So if is there anybody who’s interested to buy Heavyocity’s damage for 160$ please...
When you record a brass melody with long notes and sustain articulation and in the end of each note you wanna have a couple of 16th notes which leads into the next long note. Like: Baaaaaaaam-Bam-Bam-Baaaaaaaam-Bam-Bam-Baaaaaaaam
Do you play the Bam-Bam (16th notes) also with the sustain...
I've found myself really liking very focused individual sample libraries. While the Komplete's and Ominispheres would be nice, I can't always justify $400, $600, $1000 purchases. One option is to save up, but I feel I'd be saving up and not doing anything. Examples of what I am referring to in...
I am making this library of analog synth sounds. Because I want it to sound super analog, I've done a lot of sampling, even duplicate sampling of same notes with random sample triggering - anyway, my point is that just one synth patch makes a huge multisample (anywhere from 50Mb to 1Gb) and...
What do you think of the NI Symphony Series (Essential or full edition) - worth the money? In particular for Brass
How the alternatives fair against the EWQL Symphonic Library?
We are extremely excited to announce our new library Brute Flute - Extended Techniques!
Featuring a mighty Contrabass Flute, we captured a range of cinematic textures, harmonic embellishments and explosive articulations. The third release in our brand new Experiments range, this...
I have Oceania and love the ease-of-use and performance based sampling (no articulations or keyswitches needed).
Caspian has the same thing going on, which makes me interested in it, and I need a brass library. Kind of a shame it doesn't have a tuba though.
Do you guys think it's worth it to...
We are thrilled to announce Abstract, a unique steel percussion library for Kontakt.

Hey friends! Today let's discuss a new Cinesamples library called 'Voices of War'. This one focuses on Vikings, war, and even death, so it's perfect for those intense situations where you need a touch of darkness in your score. Enjoy!
I'm currently working on a Kontakt Library with multiples groups and I would like to creates snapshots that enables some of them (3 per snapshots to be exact).
At the moment I put an "inverter" instance on each group and put the volume at -infinite on the ones I don't want to hear...

The question is in the title: how should I mix a song demo for a sample library ?
Should I :
- do a mere level balance, with no eq, reverb or compression
- do a simple mix that sounds good enough, and brings out the samples a bit
- do the absolute best master I can ?

Hey guys! I'm looking to purchase an all-round solid orchestral harp library and I'm hoping to take advantage of this sales time to find a good one.
I'm looking for a harp library with plenty of glissando options but of course great plucking / good at general playing single notes, and other...
