    For sure, Jasper knows. If it's a very good price, I'll buy it, otherwise I'll still work with my (I don't even know how many strings libraries I own... I'm not alone I presume):faint:

    You're certainly not alone. It's very easy to fall into the trap of thinking that one new sample library will magically turn you into the new John Williams and solve all your problems. That said, I can honestly justify my last purchase from Performance Samples (Caspian) because it has truly made me write faster. For that reason I'm optimistic that Con Motto will also be very playable and will therefore also help me write music faster (this is important to me because if I spend too long on a cue, I run out of steam).

    I have CSS already but I don't use it much as it forces me to use keyswitching and I just don't like that way of working at all. It's silly, I know, but one of the things that Caspian made me realize is that I really enjoy playing those instruments and that my translates into more creative output for me.

    Speculating on the price probably serves no purpose but if I had to guess, I'd wager the price to be in the 100 usd range.

    Sorry if I missed the information, but is this upcoming library supposed to be a full Strings library with all the major articulations we're expecting from one ? Or is it more limited in scope ?
    Really enjoying the demos so far :)

    I was wondering that myself. The name indicates that there's a particular style it excels at.

    Hi Fiestared - cellos will be the first out, followed by the rest. Cellos should be out within the next 4 weeks. Mic positions are decca, wide, close-section, and close-1st-chair (a focused spot mic). 8 Violins / 6 Cellos / 6 Violas / 6 Basses.

    Con Moto is based around (a) attacks & releases edited/timed from performance phrases, for spontaneity and response, (b) "active-bow" sustains (continuously re-expressed vibrato in tandem with musically-restless bowing), and (c) legato con moto (legato with movement in the bowing and vibrato).

    Here are a few session photos if you missed them on Facebook.

    With many developers, including big ones, this is the last decision made. Only because the market and circumstances constantly change as they are making the product (like last minute bugs that are difficult to solve). They are probably smart to keep it close to the chest rather than promising something they may want to change at release. This is why setting an exact release date more than a week or two out is a bit silly also. ;)

    Agree with you, but I said "any ideas", meaning : more or less, closer to $1000 or to $50 ?

    I hope not (or i at least hope the intro price is better than just ~15% . I'm excited to hear what these are like, but price wise, you have to remember they are just longs/legatos (albeit very good sounding ones from the early demos). For example CSS is $399 full price for a whole library, with many articulations/sordino emulation/2nd violins etc and Synchron with the early bird and voucher offer was only $317

    Fair enough. I would bet your in the ball park at $5O a section. So all 4 sections, when eventually released, would be $200 for the set. Inexpensive enough to get in on a section, yet with discount may be even cheaper when they are all released and sold as a bundle. By comparison the Fluid shorts are much cheaper (though easier to program) so we’ll see.

    $50 though. do you think it'll be possible to be that cheap ?

    Considering he’ll eventually get $200 from each person and the initial release could surpass 10k orders (which is 500k), perhaps. We’ll have to wait and see what he decides.

    Are the fluid shorts (which are on sale now) a good match for the upcoming Con Moto Strings?
