Hello and hola...a Brit in Spain
This is a bit different from the Paul Thompson spitfire walkthroughs !!!
I had similar idea when I bought Kwaya, but unfortunately I wasn't able to make it work with Kwaya as a centerpiece. Note that I am still a beginner, so it may be just my inexperience. You may be able to pull it off, if you adapt the composition to fit the library (not the other way around). It may be more suitable as background or middle-ground layer.Now, Kwaya is on the list because of the fact that I want an African choir as a centerpiece, not as a simple flavor. Kwaya seems the be the only option if you want that.
Pretty new to Omni, but I cannot for the life of me find the "Phrase Directory." Any hints/clues? It doesn't happen to be from a 3rd party, does it?[/QUOTE]You get there by clicking on one of the A,B,C or D sounds, and selecting the Phrase Directory.
Glad to be of help. When I first got Omnisphere I took this free class, and it really got me started. I recommend it highly.I have a whole new level of appreciation for OMNI.
And, a very deep thanks to you Tiger. You are a Frog among Men!
I also prefer dedicated libraries. The only ethnic/world libraries I have were actually included in some other package, like the RA library that is included in EastWest subscription or the world instruments you get with Komplete 12 when purchasing some Native Instruments hardware.I own World Suite. I bought it to have many ethnic instruments at a low cost and I’m satisfied with it. Its sound is okay, but if I have a dedicated library for an instrument I would use it instead of World suite.
The Middle East library is my favorite thing about KU 12. Really a lot of fun to play and the MIDI patterns can be dragged into your DAW or even the desktop. I especially like the percussion instruments.Well guys, I have finally bought the libraries I wanted now that the transaction of the synthesizer was complete. I got away with Kwaya, Forest Kingdom II... and an upgrade from Komplete 10 to Komplete 12 Ultimate!
That last one was great because it contains lots of usable stuff for this project plus some great extra additions, like Kontakt 6, Reaktor 6 and in June Massive X. I also love Action Strikes, Damage and of course the Discovery Series caught my interest. Plus the Una Corda and a whole host of great new effects. I am satisfied, very much so. Time to play around!
Thanks everyone for the great suggestions!
I've never had any issues with them. I just loaded them both up in Cubase and they work fine.You can still get your SONiVOX stuff to work? I went back to review my libs recently because I thought I might find some of that stuff in Asia and Silk Road to be of good enough quality, but none of it will load anymore.
I pretty much agree with this post.My advice would be to get Best Service's EthnoWorld 6 or UVI's World Suite, as they offer the widest selection.
Start by exploring what instruments will work best with your project, or just inspire you most. Depending on your project, you may find some of them good enough to use as is.
Otherwise, once you know the instruments you want, you can get great advice from people on this forum about the best single instrument libraries, although everybody will have a different opinion. Generally, that's your best bet, although some of my favorite instruments are in Tarilonte collections. The Evolution series is unparalleled for world percussion.
