It's getting flattened is one. As for sound, I don't know but numerous artists have performed there, so there's a ton of history... getting flattenedCould you guys enlight me? What is so special about maida vale? Is it as overly reverberant as air lyndhurst?
The history of the place for one. It’s been used to record some of the biggest acts in history, plus a large number of classical albums.Could you guys enlight me? What is so special about maida vale? Is it as overly reverberant as air lyndhurst?
Maybe it's a subscription where they mail you eight CDs for a penny. Great deal!Or maybe, just because so many are saying "subscription," it's a different kind of subscription, the older model of subscription where you receive, say, an instrument a month, which you own to the extent that you own any commercial sample library, for some recurring fee (say $50 or $75) over the term that it takes (2, 3, 4 years) to release the full library. The instruments would also be available for purchase separately at a somewhat higher price. That would be one way of making it at least seem more affordable. I have no special information, of course, and I have doubts it would even be possible to do something like this, but it does manage to combine subscription and a new orchestral library.
For some reason I can't put my finger on, I do feel like there might be something unusual about the way this library is priced, even if this particular speculation is way off base.
At this point, it’s just become a running joke in this thread. I think those that have invested a lot into Spitfire products are against it for obvious reasons. And, as you say, SA have denied it publicly on this forum.Oh this subscription stuff has me totally mystified. I just don't get why people are so certain given communication from various folks at spitfire at different times.
But if you believe in a subscription hard enough, wondrous things can happen! Believe!At this point, it’s just become a running joke in this thread.

I’m on the fence, since I have a few of their libraries but can’t afford all the stuff that I’m interested in getting. To be able to use anything for a monthly subscription might be interesting.
Well put - the same here... I got several of their libraries in one of the wishlist sales, and I am only now starting to appreciate their depth and character.For me, Spitfire products are something to be saved for, a treat to buy and something to explore and use when you finally get them. YMMV etc.
I think it depends.As a hobbiest: Let's say you invest 1000,- into spitfire libraries, at 30 bucks a month it would take you 33 months to break even with a subscription. As most of you know, that's not even much with regards to what you can spend for their products over that time period. Looking at how many libraries Spitfire releases over the course of 33 months, I'd much rather pay a subscription fee for as long as they are relevant. If they want to stay relevant, they will have to release new products. If they do, you're better off with a subscription. The moment they stop being relevant, you will want to invest into someone else's products anyway and not being stuck with then outdated libraries you once bought.
I agree actually. I'm hoping there will be a bit more imagination in how this is priced and modularised since the totality is likely to be very spendy.For some reason I can't put my finger on, I do feel like there might be something unusual about the way this library is priced, even if this particular speculation is way off base.
