Only one I'm not totally on board with is Omni. I'm rarely satisfied with it. I spend way too long slogging through endless sounds that aren't what I'm looking for. Part of what i look for in samples is the ability to open it up and feel like i know exactly what I'll get out of it and how to achieve it. Can't seem to get to that point with Omni.
I used to feel that way - there's a lot in there that is very high bandwidth, or has way too much going on, or really loud, so it doesn't fit in a mix. There are a lot of great things in there, it just takes a while to find it. The patches from The Unfinished though are great for scoring and have a really high hit rate for me.

I kinda feel the same @Casiquire , I'm a much bigger fan of Zebra and Diva to achieve sounds than Omni. I imagine we're still screwing ourselves though, because people will read these opinions and they will find ways to screw us for our lack of faith...
Not sure I agree. Screwing others takes a lot of energy. If you and Casiquire are content with screwing yourselves, I think I'd be inclined to leave you both to it ;)

Wow only 2 pages of responses until someone with no sense of humor goes all contrarian and tries to turn a harmless and tongue-in-cheek thread into a serious discussion.

Lighten up.

It's not an either or! I'm cracking up here. All of humor has a grain of truth to it anyway; behind the humorous veil of the original post are actually some great points.

8. Do I have to make obligatory “very excited” and “on the edge of silence” jokes in every Spitfire Audio teaser thread? No, but you’re screwing yourself
9. Do I have to make „8-bit“ jokes in every Spitfire Audio Scoring Competition thread?
No, but you‘re screwing yourself

10. Do I have to say that „orchestration is a key element in every single high end music production“ before a YouTube video starts?
No, but you‘re screwing yourself.
