    "Metropolis Ark 4: Two By Two"

    Of course, but now finally you can write in the Metropolis Ark style with authentic divisi section articulations! This has, of course, been the gaping hole in every epic composer's toolbox.

    Indeed, Teldex is magic. It apparently makes 3 violins sound like an HZ army.

    It's for those cues where you need massive subtlety. I'll buy but only if those power legatos include an fff bar chime patch.

    The good news for us is, I think this is gonna lead straight to an Xmas pricing chainsaw massacre. Ark 4 will be the perfect accompaniment.

    The NI sale ends Dec 18 and it would be very helpful to have a walkthrough before then.
     
  6. OT's alternative, or complement to Spitfire's Bernard Herman library? Interesting. :)

    They did one when Ark 3 was released. Was 299 Euros, if I recall correctly, for owners of any existing Ark.

    It would be an immediate purchase for me if they did that again.

    I suspect the lack of loyalty discount is a result of the concurrent NKI sales.

    Yea. I thought I still had a 50euro coupon. I don't. Eish. So broke right now. Got a few weeks.

    They need to find a way to give the discount to owners prior to the sale. Though truthfully, if it went to 299 Euros, I might think about it.

    I believe they only did the discount for Ark I to II. I looked back on my emails and receipts and only saw one from I to II and nothing for III.

    i don't understand this Ark 4, the previous ones were clear in the concept. In one (1) sentence, what is Ark 4 about: _ _ _ _ ?

    ...Filling the gaping orchestral holes OT left in Arks 1 & 2.

    That is, high woodwinds. If I'm honest, the strings still seem a mess and I don't see how the "front row" concept addresses that.

    I am so utterly amused by "power legato."

    Power legato really needs to be a plug-in. Maybe the makers of N could do it.

    Ah crap, does the little ® mean Power Legato is a registered trademark already?

    How about a 50 Euro voucher for the person who comes up with a suitable alternative marketing term?

    I’ll go first:
    - Pitch Flux ®
    - Bravura Glide ®
    - Tone Torque ®
    - TestosterTone®
