    Best, Focused, High-Quality Individual Instrument Libraries?

    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...

    VSTi that finds notes out of audio files?

    Hi, I've been looking for a VSTi that may be able to find out the notes of song parts by analyzing it, but I'm not very convinced with my findings. The one that looks to do the job the best is Photosounder's Spiral, which seems to be pretty fine but in my opinion is way too expensive ($99) for...

    Parawave Rapid - thoughts?

    I heard a lot of good stuff about Rapid. 3 oscillators, 8 layers = 24 oscillators in total. So it seems to be based on layering and getting fat sounds. The UI is not the best but it doesn't look terrible imo and it has a good amount of skins. Apparently you can import wavetables as well now...
