    Limited to a modest 16GB Ram Laptop ; your must have core libraries for Music Production ?

    Let's talk about sample library reviews, demos, walkthroughs, and everything in between,

    I hate to be mean, but someone has to say it. Most sample library review videos on youtube are useless. There are exceptions, and I don't want to name names, but I can't be the only one who thinks this, surely? If you're going to make a sample library video on youtube, make it a demo or a series...

    What are the frontiers of realism in sampling?

    I believe there are five main frontiers in orchestral sample library realism. Essentially, these are the big dead giveaways that you are hearing samples rather than the real thing. These five things still need improvement and will define future big innovations in future sample libraries. 1...

    Why on earth don't I have sample modeling brass yet?

    Well actually I think I have an answer after a night of scouring the web for demos: most of the demos i found are either not very helpful for the type of music I want to write with them right now (more traditional orchestral stuff) or they are simply horrible demos. Aside from a few short and...

    Sampled trombones...

    Is it just me, or does it seem like sampled trombones have never hit the mark the same way any of the other standard sampled orchestral brass instruments have? I mean, of course it's never the real thing and so on and so on, but to my ears it seems at least trumpets, horns, and to a lesser...
