I have it. The standard version cost me like $25 as an upgrade from Percussion and More. I've got more than one library and not going to drive myself nuts over which one is the best. I just want ease of use.I don't see any love for VSL here, and they tend to be some of my favorite libraries. I don't have much experience with their timps, what do others think?
I guess the Timps from Inspire 1 are "inspired" from Berlin Percs Exp A, indeed !Wait... is the timp in Berlin Inspire 1 the same one from Berlin Series Exp A? Because that's the one I've been having trouble working with!
That is an amazing demo!I guess the Timps from Inspire 1 are "inspired" from Berlin Percs Exp A, indeed !
But as always with Inspire patches, it is a very light version. The Exp A is 6,2GB alone, according to the official website.
Here is a video from Sascha Knorr :
I have those same libs + QLSO and agree with you fully ^_^. In most projects, I tend to use Berlin's timpani most of the time (usually either the normal or hard mallets), haven't really tried the others yet.I own HOP, Berlin Percussion, ROP, and I'd rank them like this with my experiences with them:
1. Berlin Percussion Timpani: Sounds natural, even the hard hits sound very musical. Wonderful soft dynamics. Lots of articulations. Sometimes hard to make it cut through dense mix.
2. HOP Timpani: Immediate, big sound, easy to play. Loud hits lack just a bit of melodic content in the sound.
3. ROP Timpani: Quite small dynamic scale, doesn't go loud enough.
