The one thing from the videos that I'm still not seeing so far is how you would you save your own settings and presets as in a Kontakt Multi so the next time you load up your instruments, the keyswitches and settings are the same. When working with templates and presets, you need consistency. I always set my keyswitches to the same keys for all libraries being used (depending on instrument range of course). I'm not seeing much point in having the app automatically assign keyswitches for you every time you load up an instrument's articulations (unless maybe your loading an instrument for the first time).

You can program your own desired key switches to note value...

You can easily set that up in Sine and save your project so its the same every time you load it up...

I just setup expression maps in Cubase for the JXL brass and always use the same remote keys as well...

Other options are CC for art changes or even velocity... All depending on what you want or desire

That's good to hear. Assumed there must be a way to save your own settings to the way you work. Probably best to wait till the manual is posted for download to read over all the options available. Working in Kontakt all these years now, it will probably take a little time to get used to the new interface.

Hey Guys,

I just shot another episode, showing you how to get started with SINE.
From installing SINE to playing the first patch.


Btw, more Walkthroughts around Junkie XL Brass & another view behind the curtain will come!
In the meantime, for more info head to www.getsine.com and jxlbrass.com

All the best,
Hendrik
That horns sound is killer... You guys have totally nailed the tone! Looking forward to more demos. Spitfire just lost my money that could be spent for SSB upgrade pending to complete my full SSO collection

@OrchestralTools , something for you to watch out... When I type google search string "orchestral tools", I get a popup for Spirfire Audio google ad above your website in the search results... You guys need to get your digital marketing right (or please IM me, I'd be happy to advise!)

OT has been spending their marketing dollars on quality material oddly.

hard to compare to SFA when a few of its users are so absolutely prolific when it comes to videos even if they arent directly business related.

if hendrik blogged 2-3 times a week about scoring sessions at teldex it would probably end up taking away from the time spent working on OT products(even if it got many more eyes on them)

I'm happy with where OT is in the market. and hope they continue to veer towards uncompromising quality rather than accessibility so that they continue to stand out

I wonder if you are still limited by separate keyswitch patches or if you can just stack any patches (of a certain instrument) including legato ones?
And are keyswitches still limited to 12 patches only?
And can you route patches in a keyswitch multi to a different outputs (eg. longs and shorts)?

Maybe something for episode 4 ;)

Definitely curious about these kinds of details, but I'm hoping episode 4 will be about the poly maps feature :dancedance:

By the way; The Sine player is super easy to work with... I have worked for years with Kontakt and within a day it felt like I was working with Sine for years...
Tom, I know your incredible attention to detail will shine through on this library and that's why I preordered Day 1. Looking forward to using what I'm sure will be the best brass library on the market.

I really think the preorder price should be extended after the release date so that there are more people who will get a chance to try it and provide their input. And this allow others who are still hesitant to purchase to make informed decisions whether or not they would want to purchase it or has what they are after. Cutting off the preorder price on release seems a dodgy move since nobody would have been able to try it until after. Thoughts?

Episode 4 is live!!
This one goes into more detail about Mic Merging.
You can go through the mixer step by step and get a real understanding of how SINE economizes on space.


Mic Merging means you can mix multiple mic positions and create the exact sound you want, then merge them into one custom mix.

As ever, let us know your thoughts!

I really think the Mic Merging feature is ground breaking.
Even the mature sampler Kontakt doesn't have such feature and I think all samplers should have it.
Not everyone has a server room full with rack mount PCs dedicated to samplers like Hans Zimmer or Junkie XL :P

One feature request I would like to ask is,
I wish we could specify a certain drive to save our mic merged samples.
From the video, I didn't spot any options where you could specify a drive/folder.
(e.g. Lets say I have the original samples of Junkie XL Brass saved on E:¥ drive, I'd want to save my custom mic merged samples on another drive like F:¥ .)
It would be nice if you could add such feature.

EDITED:
Another nice feature would be the ability to see the mic settings you used to create the custom mic merge samples when you load the merged samples.
Lets say, I create a custom mic merge setup for a specific project. I save that mic merge sample with my DAW project file so that I can archive it on my backup drive when I'm finished with said project.
In the future, I might want to recall it and might want to use that mic merged samples, but maybe tweak it a little too.
Its handy if you could see how you created that custom sample.
Of course, I could just take note and save a txt file with my project file or take a screenshot of the mixer settings and save that too.
But such feature would make life easier, at least for me.

Its a minor feature, but being able to save custom mic merge samples to another drive would be a major feature.

That purge button looks sexy as hell ;)
While I have to pratically beg other developers to improve their player, OT is coming in full guns blazing with way more than I could possibly ask for. I said it before and I´ll say it again....Sine is the future!

SINE - yes, I like it and I get that it's a tool you have developed that opens up some interesting possibilities. I'm going to put money on the library (and not the player), keen to know if there is a plan to release any further demos of JXL Brass library / when please?

yeh, make with the demos. :P

Nearly 3 weeks on pre-order by now and not one proper audio demo yet (i'm discounting the teaser as it sounds horrible) for a 500 euro (well, 750 euro) library?!

Its an awful lot of money to commit to before even hearing it in action.
