    Just weighing my options here. I think the Spitfire range and current pricing are excellent! I have a library in my wishlist now.
    Aside from the mentions of the new Komplete offerings , wasn't Soundiron following up Hyperion with a heavier program? I really liked Hyperion strings and wouldn't mind a nibble on the larger program. Not sure when , if or ever. Any word on this? Or is this worthy competition?

    Does anyone have any exposed examples of the OA Evolutions individual instruments?

    I already have OACE, and am interested in seeing if the instruments in OAE would add anything really meaningful to it.

    Frustratingly Pauls walkthrough video only spends a minute or so on the individual instruments and then he only plays chords, so you can't actually hear the samples by themselves.

    Also, read a couple of people on here saying OACE made OAE redundant for them.
    Wondering if that still holds up as true for most people.

    Thanks as always. :)

    OAE is a very different library form OACE, closer to sound design in that it needs a certain amount of processing - it's not sampled with the pristine quality of OACE (or at least I haven't had luck turning of the asdr and the effects and trying to use the raw sample without any processing ). Wheres OACE feels like an obvious-in-retrospect development - or perfection of - the innovations of SCS, OAE and the other evos. You can use the individual OACE evos as orchestral articulations in their own right. OAE, well sometimes, but generally you want to stick to an evo grid I find.

    So I would't call AOE redundant, as the solo textures can really add something even layered on top of OACE. But its OACE that's coming with me to a desert island.

    Another way to think of this might be that while OAE can go 'orchestral' enough to mix with OACE, in conception I feel it sits most comfortably closer to the heavocity-sound-designy end of the spectrum, wheres AOCE sits naturally close to orchestral-SCS end. Each has consider reach across the spectral from ambient sound design to orchestral articulations, but OACE is naturally more orchestral, while OAE is naturally more sound designy.


    Of course, subject to availability of space in my suitcase, I'd love to have OAE with me on that dessert island also. It's a seriously beautiful library in its own right.

    Thanks ism. Useful thoughts as always.

    Would still be nice if anyone has any examples.

    One of my "issues" (not really, but the word mostly fits) with OACE is it can quickly stack up with chords etc to quite a big sound, almost full orchestra, quickly losing that intimacy, which is what I'm looking at OAE for.

    Cheers.

    I think I know what you mean here. This kind of intimacy what I was going for in this noodle with BDT - is that close?



    There's some OACE in this also, if I recall. The intimacy however comes mostly from BDT - though the importance of "tremolo whispers" from solo strings can't be overstated.

    You question has me wondering why I didn't think to use AOE on this also. I do plan to revisit this and see if there's isn't a proper composition to be developed from it, and adding OAE is a natural thing to explore.

    (Good lord though - the legato solo string are noodled in before I'd started to think about vibrato, I'm cringing at how much better they could be with a little attention to crafting the arcs.)

    You didn't mean 56% off? That's what it says for me...

    No, it is 65% discount. Sold separate price is £1666. Sale bundle price is £580. So 65% discount off these individual products when bought as this bundle

    just noticed mine changes from 56% once I actually click on the product page. But it shows 56% on the wishlist page.

    The 56% figure is the discount off the non-sale bundle price.

    Thank you for clearing that up! Thought that I had it figured out already, but I had it mixed up. 65% shows up just as you say when I click the product page.

    Seriously considering British Drama Toolkit and use it like a very special mellotron. Good idea?

    Looking at the Scandi but I already have Tundra. Does anyone know if there's a way to get a discount since I already have?

    Add it to your wishlist and it will automatically adjust the price if you already own something from the bundle

    No idea what this even means. But I hope you'll let us know how it works out.

    Thanks, I was thrown off because the price is different (~$10), even though I would be getting the same products.
