Are the new trailer percussion and hand percussion patches the same ones from Saga , only with 3 mic positions now in Sketchpad ? Just curious.

The trailer percussion patch is a limited version of the one in Saga, but with the extra mic position to match the other Palette instruments. This is the reason we're offering the $50 crossgrade discount. The hand percussion patch, however, is unique to Palette.

That is an AWFUL LOT of content to give away as a freebie. Whole new patches, instruments and articulations? Madness.

Did you go back and record new sessions or are these samples from the original recordings that you've only just decided to add in?

Thanks! The new content came from entirely new sessions, with the exception of the additional soloist articulations in Melodics.

Is it correct to assume Brush Packs are totally 'additive' to Sketchpad, with final content close to 74 GB __ total ~82GB with Saga ?

Hi all. I realize the nomenclature of the product line may be slightly confusing so let me try to clarify.

As EvilDragon says, all 4 libraries are completely different with no overlap. Each covers a different area of cinematic/orchestral scoring. Symphonic Sketchpad is your meat and potatoes for full orchestra and essential supporting instruments. Melodics adds additional colors of unique orchestrated combos (recorded together, not scripted) and soloists, all with true legato. Orchestral FX puts thousands of cinematic strings, brass, winds and choir FX at your fingertips to sprinkle in for dramatic effect. Runs & Arps provides authentic, recorded runs and arpeggios in several modes and in all keys, for both strings and woodwinds.

Each Palette library can be purchased separately and is completely usable on its own. You don't need to own Symphonic Sketchpad, for example, to use the brush packs. So if you've already got basic orchestral patches but you could use some FX or Runs, try those brush packs. Or if you're looking for some inspirational melody-carrying combos, try Melodics (which actually has more sample content than Sketchpad!). The entire series was recorded in the same fairly dry hall by the same orchestra so they're very easy to blend with other libraries (and of course they blend perfectly together). The recent update added over 7 GB of free additional content and improvements to the Palette line and we intend to continue to make them even better.

Hope this helps!

p.s. - and though Saga is not part of the Palette series it was recorded in the same hall and serves as the perfect companion for large cinematic percussion.

THX! Had no idea the Brush Packs could be used individually. Not critical for my needs as focus is on SketchPad +++.

@ ED ... sorry for badly worded question .... as your earlier comment was clear.
My post was not wondering about content overlap, but other parts of each BP, as I was considering total required SSD /HDD space. Realized, after asking, that very little space would be involved, compared to sample content. :sleep:

Automatic price 'reward', as Brush Packs are added, is very cool ! :thumbsup:
