Well, this is a library made by Jasper Blunk, an innovative composer and library producer who offers some libraries that other developers do not offer.

First, I had to accustom myself to his approach of "delays" of the sounds and these "no purist" kind of sounds.

But the more I got used to his philosophy of sample libraries, the more I am able to work with his products.

His products are really outstanding and they are always an "ear-catcher" on top of a composition.
I like it.

As a Logic user, I'm waiting a moment but will definitely purchase this. It's the same disclaimer Jasper put up for Caspian Brass, and that is completely workable in Logic, especially if you use only one mic position until mixing.

Well, hoping Logic users who take the plunge will let us know how it's performing.

A disclaimer suggesting it's resource hungry is one thing, but to say it should be avoided by Logic users on the product page is another.

And I know it says "Logic AU" users, so if there's an obvious workaround to using this as a VST in Logic with the same functionality and performance as would be achieved by non-Logic users, it would be good to mention that right after the disclaimer. But there's nothing like that mentioned.

Fair enough, actually.

Yeah -- disappointed that it seems to be Logic-unfriendly, but glad that Jasper is just upfront about it. I appreciate the warning, even as I wish it weren't necessary.

Purchased Con Moto Cellos !

Looking forward to discovering these tasty sounding cellos :thumbsup:

I'm hoping Con Moto Violins will be out next.

Many Thanks to Performance Samples.

Will wait and see what happens till 9th of may from OT and their 30% sales. If there isn‘t something for me, I think this looks great to complete my setup for now:)

What is the actual issue created for Logic users? Clicks, dropouts?

On a positive note, as a cellist these are some of the best VI cellos I've ever heard. It is just one more home run for the "significant preroll sampling" approach. First CSS, then Fluid Shorts, now Con Moto, are all showing that this approach pays dividends that far exceed the minor hassle of programming a compensating negative track delay.

Exactly, I agree the hassle is minor, considering the benefits.

I'm not sure that's what he wrote... CPU spikes can cause serious problems. The library seems too sound great, too bad if there's something with Logic/the AU format which causes spikes. I hope Apple will address this.

Not so obvious, actually, since one cannot load VSTs in Logic. Seriously, AU only.

This new review might help some decide...

I just wish it had a little more bite at the top dynamic, but kudos to Jasper and PerfSamp. :)
Agree. Would be nice to listen to clear marcato bite when hitting hard velocities. I guess this and Adventure Strings in 2 keyswitches should cover these kinda phrases well. Still, 500$ for a legato/sustain patch only orchestra is a bit too much for me.
