    Wishing my Isle of Wight internet connection would hurry up. These 100+gb downloads are taking their time haha

    What is it with Continuata Connect. I've left my computer on for a couple of days downloading Cineperc and I check on it this morning and it's frozen. So I restart it, hit the download button and it crashes. Every time. Hitting Shift and reset leads to crashing. The only way to get it to download agin was by choosing a new folder (on same drive) and restarting the whole download again. Ridiculous.

    I guess I had better buy a new sample library whilst I wait for this beast to download. haha

    Here's a very interesting video for sample lovers in which Wilbert Roget II (Call of Duty WWII) talks about his use of sample libraries and how he mixes them with live players. When asked at the end which percussion library he uses, he says CinePerc is the best ;)

    He uses Reaper and usually scores an entire score in just one single Reaper project.

    The multiple mics are really nice, I’d suggest checking them out. In some cases there is a sub track that adds a great boom not in the mix.

    I usually remove the reverb too. The room is nice. Only downside to Cineperc is it doesn’t work great for hybrid/ trailer tracks. I suppose I need strikeforce for that.

    Strikeforce is perfect for hybrid/trailer/anything that isn't supposed to be acoustic. It's a great perc library. And to be honest, how they have they dynamic layers mapped across keyboard, I wish that was in everything. Very quick to get results when using a crap controller keyboard with bad velocity response. Which reminds me, the next thing I buy is an NI Kontrol S61 mk2 as I reckon that will be just such a great controller for playing perc on (and for a synth action).

    I've already been listening to the patches with just the Close mic. Loving it. The Castanets piqued my interest but the Typewriter got my attention. ;)

    Cool. Don't forget to check out the other mics, especially on bigger drums. Like on brass, the room can add a lot of meat to the sound. :)

    What's this "OP01 Timpani - Soft Mallets" patchs? Do I have to own the full collection to have that or what?

    I'm so friggin' jealous of you right now! I wish I had the funds for CinePerc... for now I'll just eyeball Rhapsody Percussion... :cautious:

    I find adding an exciter really gives CinePerc a nice crack and sizzle if you are going for Hybrid style sounds! Waves one is good, and also the one that comes with Ozone.

    Before I buy it, this isn't a locked library, is it? I need to be able to tweak tunings and other parameters.

    The sale is over and it looks like Cineperc is $700. Did they lower the price? I could have sworn it was ~$900 before.

    They did lower the price. According to my 2018 Black Friday Excel, it was $799, in line with the archive link posted by @mgpqa1.
