Sounds good, once again hoping Dominus comes through for 229 USD this BF, so one can pick up Dominus Pro later...:)

Thank you guys! For us it was really useful to see how an experienced user would approach the library. We have thought about a couple of fixes (releases for the Marcato articulation and an overview of the tuning for the Marcatos) before the release.


Thank you Daniel!! :D

Going to watch it at the end of the week I guess. Don't have much time before the weekend (whatever a weekend is tho. No idea)

It sounds excellent. Dominus itself was excellent, but I felt the missing Marcs and Staccs took a bit away from it. Those have been added, and it sounds fantastic! It is about 45 minutes of noodling, and he's just trying to come up with swear words.

Thanks man, sounds like fun. Guess I know what I will do on one of those days other people call weekend

I bought the original Dominus last BF sale and after an initial play I haven't had cause to use it until just recently. I included two tracks in a Cubase session - love the sound. The library is on a Samsung T3 SSD USB drive but for some reason it takes a really long time to load (I'm talking many minutes). By elimination I proved it was the 2 Dominus tracks which take so long. Even just loading the library in a standalone version of Kontakt 5 or 6 takes a lot longer than other libraries. I sent a support request to Fluffy but received to feedback. Anyone else have this issue - any suggestions. I've done the usual Batch Resave etc. with no effect. It's frustrating because I love the choir!

Woah! This exact thing happened to me. My template loading time went from 4mins to 7mins and I identified that it was Dominus, for some reason. If I open a new instrument and try to load Dominus, Cubase stops responding for a few minutes. I think performance is absolutely fine, once loaded, but the loading is definitely an issue. I had thought it was to do with me moving stuff from my computer to my Laptop, but actually, I'm having the exact same problem...

Hello! We have solved this problem also and this will be available in the update. Dominus engine has to load most of the samples entirely in memory, to make his own syllable jumping around the library. This will always make it a little heavier than DFD only patches. But the main cause of this was that the samples in D1 are separate files in a folder. We spotted that packaging them in nkx format (as it happens for all Kontakt Player libraries) solves this issue and the library loads instantanely.

That's why Dominus Choir Pro and the update for Dominus Choir will have their samples packaged.

The day just gets better and better! Thanks, just wanted to make sure I hadn't messed something up.

@paoling I had another dream. An old hag came to me and told me that anyone who releases their library in November will have bad luck. She said that any sample developers that want future good luck, should release their libraries on the 22nd of October. Not sure why she was so specific, but you know how curses go. It is best not to risk it.

Wow! I'm so pleased with this reply. I had a feeling that something like this was the case. Will the existing Dominus be updated or will I need to upgrade to Dominus Pro to resolve this issue. Not that I wouldn't do that at sometime but obviously the budget......

Looks like there's an independent update coming for Dominus 1 (so you won't have to upgrade to Pro to resolve this issue). At least how I read it.

Excitement wise I'd like to see this thread get to 5000 posts first :). Please don't wait too long because of "another 'big' release that's happening...from a fellow developer" ;).

Well the closest direct competitor - and arguably the only real competitor to Dominus is - and correct me if I'm wrong - is the Insolidus / Silka series. So maybe there's another one of these coming?

There might be another current attention stealer as well, without ruling out Silka v2 by any means.
