+1 for decimator drums. Not that I don’t love Cerberus. Would love AI to at least make the sound design from decimator drums available again
Every so often I go back to IK's Miroslav I and II and attempt to make them more workable. The tone is generally excellent, but the programming especially at it relates to dynamics, is difficult to make work for me.[...]
The very first Miroslav Vitous String Ensembles was quite good too, certainly for its day. (I have the EMU E6400 version, which I later translated for Logic's EXS.) And if used wisely, it still qualifies for a place in a mock-up made today, I find.
yeah, I used those for such a long time layered with Sonic Implants Sordinos.Prime sound session strings, very old library. I think I remember that the official demos didn't convince me but these by @dcoscina changed my mind http://northernsounds.com/forum/showthread.php/27602-Prime-Sounds-Session-Strings-Excellent!
I still use the sustains from time to time.
This sounds absolutely nothing like the SWAM Cello. But there are hybrid, sample-based instruments that use modeling for playability.Well that must be impressive for a sample-based vsti then.
Interesting. I heard they were one and the same, although with fewer articulations. When Guy Michelmore used them in a tutorial video he mentioned that they were very old but still sounded wonderful. But maybe I'm wrong.Based on what I heard in some examples it's either extremely limited compared to Sonic Implants (sample wise) or it has nothing to do with it.
Yes, Wizoo! I still have Darbuka and Latigo stored away somewhere!Two already mentioned:
Wizoo Darbuka. Well recorded and programmed Arabic percussion loop library. Clever GUI.
NI Spektral Delay. Peter Max and orange sunshine in a plug-in. Instant psychedelia
Yeah, it's same samples but Sonivox version is more limited, no different dynamic layers in sustains, less articulations, etc. If they would start selling them for Kontakt once more with better scripting and simulated legato, it would make a really nice starter orchestra. The sound of the samples is still beautiful.Interesting. I heard they were one and the same, although with fewer articulations.
