Cinesamples: Cineperc. Still worth the money?

Probably right. The only other thing that was 'interesting' was the celeste and maybe low chimes - but for a few hundred????? Having said all this CORE really is good.
I love the celeste! Very easy to get in the orchestra, or as a solo instrument. To bad they dont sell it separatly anymore. CORE and PRO are great, but there is so many instruments from EPIC and AUX I’ll probably never use

This is where I'm kind of "stuck" as well. I own both CORE and PRO, but it'll cost me $399 to complete the collection with the upgrades (e.g., Kontakt Player version, ensemble patch, remappings) and I don't think I'll use anything from EPIC or AUX.

Thanks for this. I am STILL using VSL's Celeste - the standard and soft version on that library just hasn't been beat - Always on the lookout for one that is recorded in the right space though (goldy locks - not to dry not to wet.)

FWIW, the Celeste in Spitfires Joby Percussion is absolutely beautiful. Maybe a tad on the wet side for some.
Yea I like it for 'some' things. But just a tad wet for most projects. To get it drier with mics causes the 'tone' to go south for me. :( That really is a tough instrument to capture right IMHO.

Timpani seems to be all over the place. I louded the soft mallets, some RRs are way quieter than the rest, so making a consistent line is just impossible; then I played D, a first note I hit, with medium mallets and there are some tuning issues, what a mess. :eek:

VERY helpful. The "Standard" issue timp on the Core doesn't seem to have these issues (it really is quite good). I am already over-worked - don't need MORE to do. Thanks again.

Those were Core timpani. There are some other CinePerc timpani?

Just to be clear - my copy of CP CORE - has ONLY

01 Timpani (doesn't say 'soft')
02 Timpani FX

That's it. How are you 'seeing' soft on your CORE?

When I load up my Timpani Core patch, next to the Mixer button on the left there's a Mapping button, there I can set up which velocity values trigger which maller. And I can select "Custom map", then select "velocity" from the menu next to the mallet type I want to play, while leaving all those other mallet types disabled and it uses only the mallet type I selected.

OK - that's cool. Maybe I should read the manual every once in a while. :) I guess I hadn't noticed the problem you mention before.

I have 1.1 version. Maybe I should try to reinstall it or something.

Try to play at very low velocity a lot of the same notes in a row, interested if you notice that problem. Or that middle D note with medium mallets, the pitch floats here and there, it's definitely not only D.
