Hahahah, now I want this thread to materialize.
You know...last library I bought was the Bernard Herrmann, probably my favorite library ever (duh..you think? ). So I really haven't been buying much to be disappointed in.
In fact, as dubious as this will understandably sound, I'm grabbing LCO if it ever goes on sale and that will be it outside of upgrades for a long time, really.
I just realized I went six months without buying a library, and concurrently my bank account is doing great.
Gee, do ya think there's a connection?
Nope. Impossible. There can't be. It definitely must be something else.
Could it also be that people expect too much from libraries? Like a violinist buying a better violin thinking he won't need to do as much practicing anymore.
But it's also possible to buy a new violin that's worse than the one you already had. Especially when you can't demo it first.
Usually doesn't a violinist try out the instrument before buying it? Or did I misunderstood?
Substitute "sample library" for "violin."
My point is that you're right, there will always be people who have unrealistic expectations. Sometimes, though, people just expect a new library to do something better than their current library, but it is actually worse than their current library. This is doubly frustrating when (unlike the violin) you can't demo the sample library first.
Would be cool if there was a free 2 or 5 day trial for all libraries, with a few limitations. That's dreaming I guess.
Or we could sell the violin if we don’t like it?
Well, you can do that with the Chris Hein. However, I wouldn't advise getting rid of that. No.
Oh I have my acceptance speech prepared.
We'll probably see Amazon doing this soon.
Same for me. I installed it and found the programming to be very sloppy in places. I uninstalled it and it sits on my shelf. Other disappointments were my 8DIO buy-a-thon where I bought Basstard, Post Apocalypse Guitars, Hybrid Scoring Tools 2 and Dubstep Vol 1. Never use them. I could buy a house with hardware and software regrets. :(
Darren, you can't be in "the club" unless you buy stuff all day long. Good God man put down the "responsibility" and get off the wagon.
errrr..mmm...all of them eventually? I honestly don’t know.
Now that’s just crazy talk.
lol! You're right.
Eh, I was a did a really quick purchase of deep sampled solo violin. Did not think it was loop based because I was an idiot and didn't read through it enough, just heard the demos. Kind of getting tired that they are trying to make loops into orchestral music.
thanks I will, I know a lot of this stuff works well, It's a great sounding library, I just haven't found the place for it in my compositions.
Hollywood Strings. It was the first big library I ever bought when I was around 17 years old. Spent months saving up for it. It sounded great, but ended up being almost completely unusable due to the PLAY engine. Waited eagerly for an update to PLAY (I think it was PLAY 4?), and when I got it, it ended up making the performance/crashing even worse. Uninstalled it later that week and never used it again. ~$400 down the drain.
