I have this same problem with some of the legatos. I am not having any problem with switching articulations.Is anybody having issues with some samples not triggering (the long sustain after a legato transition, mostly), and the impossibility of switching articulations, either via keyswitches or even clicking on the interface?
Just did a quick googling, no luck. I'm running Reaper and Live 9 in Windows 10, seems to be some inconsistencies, to say the least.
same, but trying to see if it adds anything to Anthology. Anthology just doesn't sound very organic in a lot of places to my ears. IDK what it is.Haven't bitten yet. I'm back and forth as to whether it adds anything new to Cinematic Studio Strings line.
Here are two short examples, slower and more lyrical, then a bit faster. The legato isn't as bad as I feared, though you can hear that it struggles to keep up in the second, faster part.Haven't bitten yet. I'm back and forth as to whether it adds anything new to Cinematic Studio Strings line.
Thank you, this sounds well worth $28 to my ears. Nice playing too.Here are two short examples, slower and more lyrical, then a bit faster. The legato isn't as bad as I feared, though you can hear that it struggles to keep up in the second, faster part.
My biggest problems are in the stereo perspective (which keeps bouncing around) and the crossfading (which often sounds to me like a section playing instead of a solo.)
The first section was done freehand, no quantizing. The faster part was quantized. No eq, one instance of Phoenixverb as an insert:
It totally does. 8dio should have their heads checked--what were they thinking?The bouncing stereo perspective doesn't bother you?
I have heard this issue with other libraries. Don't remember off the top of my head, but this seems to happen from time to time. I think it's a case of possibly recording on different days, and having the seats be slightly off from a previous take...only thing I can think of why the bouncing around.The bouncing stereo perspective doesn't bother you?
I don't think you're being hypocritical at all, maybe just not imagining every scenario that some of us may be in.I guess I'm kind of baffled at how much conjecture there is over a library this price. At 28 bucks you'll find a use for at least some of those samples, folks.
Not meant disparagingly. I guess I'm just an old person whom is still getting used to the fact that some people here spend way more time on deliberating sales and purchases than learning anything about or composing music (not that I have any problem at all with that and neither should anyone else; hobbies are great to have imo). I myself know exactly how fun it is to do the above...so much so that I (almost) resent the time I have to spend finishing commissions when I could be having fun like you guys lol!
So I'm a total hypocrite, because I already know I'd spend way more time on here if I didn't have to work
Nope. Likely solution will be: don't use the patches. Maybe it will be fixed once I am able to run the installer. Not sure why that would do anything, but I haven't been able to run it, and 8dio support hasn't gotten back to me about the installer not running.Did you find a fix?
That's something I found odd and frustrating about the violas in Agitato Sordino Strings. It stinks that it's apparently in Adagio too.Bought it, love it. There's issues here and there, I wouldn't buy it expecting it to be a go-to. For me it'll be a specialized tool for slower expressive writing. Like adagios.
BTW, there's a lot of portamento in this. I'm not 100% sure, but I suspect there might be some intervals where the only connected note you can get has a portamento.
The dynamic bows are very nice, and for me are worth $28. The divisi is not really divisi but a half section. (That is, you don't get two half sections but only one.)I'm on the fence. I have 8dio Adagietto so I'm guessing I'm covered from the ensemble perspective and I have CSSS so I'm covered for the solo perspective. Besides the divisi would this bring any value? Even at $28 I don't want to hop on something that is going to collect virtual dust.
Now the bases on the other hand....
