You are a pro. I did make sure that I had a new password that I could remember, but that was it. I even decided to walk home from work yesterday thinking that the chances of there being a free woodwinds ostinato library on the second day were probably quite slim. So I arrived home at 17:30 CET to be proven wrong. I guess I should have done my homework better.Sonokinetic has a countdown counter on their site. Users shared a table that showed the last two years the freebie was on the second day of the sale. My user account was in good standing - I signed in yesterday to check. And right on time I bought. Before the frenzy. Sleep is not an excuse! LOL! Can you tell I've done a lot of Black Friday sales. It really is the same thing.
Okay, I probably shouldn't have mentioned about the second day. If they do something like this again (does percussion have ostinatos?) it might not be on the second day now.....
I don't drink beer myself, but even in The Netherlands Heineken is considered to be ditch water.Thanks Sonokinetic for this lovely freebie. As good as free beer, unless that would’ve been Heineken.
Heineken is no beer, it’s flavoured water
That only happens when Amsterdam is flooded by noisy English drunks.Best beer town IMO is Antwerp. If it’s not flooded by noisy Dutch drunks
If you close the Sonokinetic Manager completely and open it again, it will go through a process of verifying what has been downloaded and it should pick up where it left off, allowing it to finishWeird issue here, I downloaded via the Sonokinetic manager.It's been stuck at 99.32% dl'ed 19.34gb of 19.54gb completed.It' been stalled like this for 6 hours. I tried pause & resume, no change.

it breaks again and again, sometimes when nearly finished
excellent, thank you.I think Da Capo is one of Sonokinetics earlier orchestral offerings. I'd put it toward the sketching orchestra end of the orchestral spectrum.
There's an ensemble patch, and also invidividual patches for brass, percussion, strings, and woods. All of those are highly configurable as to instrument selections, and there are a limited range of articulations that cover the basic orchestral ground (perhaps I have a Lite version, I'm not quite sure, got this as part of a massive NI sale). The control panels take a little study, but once you've figured them out they're very efficient.
To my ears Da Capo feels most comfortable toward the largo end of the scale. The sound is quite rich and even lush, and rather unique among the several orchestral VIs I use. There are several mic positions and the close one is especially well done. It's strongest point beyond the sound is it's considerable programmability as to section configuration. The downside is that the interface initially feels quirky, but you can grow to love it and it works. And the range of articulations doesn't go beyond the basics. It's not a strong up-front instrument, it's not one-size-fits-all, but it can work wonders in combination with other VIs. Worth the discounted price easily, if only to extend your interpretative palette.
