Yay, been waiting for Ostinato Strings!
Thanks for that, I have been unsure about it myself. I like to build everything from the ground up, as much as I can at least, but I could see a happy medium such as this being useful for quick work.
I like to prepare everything from the scratch as well but using this library got me into another perspective.
These Sonokinetic libraries feel like a room of several door. You open one and you get into another similar room with another conjuction of possibilities then another one and another. But the way how you will pass this route is your individual decision. It is in fact your own original path where you can combine all your other tools if needed for more distinctiveness but the originality is in the end in the way how you use the possibilities you encounter.
Well, I hope Capriccio is a good starter for Sono stuff. I have resisted phrase-based solutions for too long I think. Working solo all the time leaves me with intense personal focus but no fresh air, as it were. The comments here about inspiration and the season at hand got my inner Scrooge to see things differently. In fact, to quote Tim, "I'd like to stroke it". Let's hope it's a glorious goose and not a turkey.
I really prefer Sotto. I find that Largo gets more in the way. It does sound nice though. Very much tempted by Capriccio but I'm trying to save up for something else.
I have both Sotto and Largo. I use Sotto more than Largo, though I used Largo in a track the other day, and was able to use midi drop and drag to move seamlessly from it to SCS, so I was pleased with that. Looking to pick up another one more like Sotto than Largo. Capriccio does fit the bill. Also thinking about Minimal, if that is offered on special. IIRC, Grosso and Espressivo were both offered at 50% off at Halloween, so I doubt we'll see them during this sale.i have Sotto and Capreccio and a few others - ecstatic!
i like the tempo and sound of Largo (from the demos) - i don't have a problem with its intrusiveness.
i'm saving as well... sure will be an interesting 4 days.
