    Yes, the double reeds are too low compared to other instruments.

    Thanks for your thoughts! You make a good point.

    I’m actually as huge a fan of legato as anyone, but it was really nice and pleasant to see how OT kept their singular focus without sampling legato, as I’m sure many of us have collections featuring the best legatos possible. Hence why I found it quite interesting when I observed this :)

    Definitely. That singular focus shows their confidence in their vision of what this tool is.:)

    I can’t help but try to imagine a world where another major British developer could release a library and the lack of legsto would be praised as stoic adherence to a lofty ideal instead of just being absolutely destroyed for cutting corners

    Please check out the other mics. Woodwinds and Low reeds sound better to me with Close and AB mics, the tree is a bit to noisey and distant. It really makes a difference check all the mics in these patches, and since it's just 10 patches it's not a big job. THen you can adjust levels on the mics to match other patches and save your versions.

    Read the threads for Spitfire's Drama Toolkit and you will not have to try to imagine this.

    I think the idea with Time Macro is that you've already got your basics covered with other core libraries and this is extra texture to layer in. You really shouldn't be expecting this to do the core functions of a strings/winds/brass library. (Although it could cover your basic choir needs.)

  9. I had a glitch during install, and i am wondering if there are multis in this library?
    Even the Multi instruments section only features one patch here...

    In Multi Instruments: there are (3) Multis in Combined Sections and (10) in Individual Sections.

    Yes and these are multi patch in one nki. (eg instruments).
    There are no MULTIS like in ARK3 .
    Maybe that was what you wanted ?
    I already made.......37 multis ......Sooooo good !!!

    OT should make multis in every library like the ones in Ark 3 . They are really good..... ( I know that the combined orchestra section are like multis.....but in an nki.....)....

    No, my mistake, apparently I was being too subtle for some. I was talking about Spitfire Audio.

    I personally thought the lack of legato in this library (along with their OSR and Sphere) was so that it doesn't undermine the Berlin series and potentially draw sales away from it by offering a cheaper legato option.

    You totally could get by with buying Time Macro and using it as your core library instead of the Berlin Series...just as long as you don't need any shorts, legatos, runs, dynamics above mf, any solo instruments, half of your brass section, anything recorded in situ, or fast attack on articulations. Or any articulations other than sustains (with a few exceptions).

    Yup, you were... "another major British developer" the another part threw me since it implies an additional thing of the exact same type...

    I think you were referring to "developer" and I assumed country of origin... :sneaky:

    Fine, “another major developer who happens to be British” :faint:

    Very curious to see what people are doing with this, really hoping to hear more experiment with this the lib.

    I'm still so enraptured by the choirs that I haven't really got past them yet. Here's another attempt to build at orchestration that really makes use of the choir textures:



    (Oboe and strings are SSW, Olafur Chamber Evo and Tidal)

    I suppose I'm also finding the TM strings and winds typically a bit, I guess large is the word. So still contemplating what handle that.

    Hi
    I downloaded with Continuata. Everything seems to be there but none of the rar files unpacked and the install process stopped.
    Has anyone else had this happen?
    I'm inclined to make a OT TM folder and manually unpack the rar files does this seem like a good way to proceed?
    Thanks
