Spitfire Spring Wish List Announced ;)

Meanwhile, my own wishlist now reads:

EDNA Earth + Kinematik
The Grange
Spitfire Studio Orchestra, though, with all the orchestral stuff I already have from Spitfire (mainly strings (SCS and Solo, but also WW and Brass in Albion V and BHCT) and NI (Kontakt factory library, Symphony series light) this will be a very luxury purchase. It's alluring because of its dry, everything in its right place attitude, though...
Martyn Ware
DC Noisemaker
Alternative Solo Strings (already have the Artisan Violin and Cello, so should be 'cheap')
Ambient Guitars (not wishlist, but upgrade from having Enigma 1).

Any advices as to NOT to buy any of the above? ;)

I am on the fence with the Studio series.

How many dynamic layers does the Spitfire Studio Woodwinds (longs and legatos) have? How about the Brass? I couldn’t fund this info anywhere so I am asking owners of these libs...

The symphonic Series, for example, otherwise a good sounding library package, has too few layers to be used in certain situations. But I wonder if Studio series library is just as limited.

I don't know for certain, but I think most shorts have 4 dynamics, and the longs vary between 4 for the most basic down to 1 for something like Super Sul Tasto, which can really only have one "dynamic layer" anyway.

I remember putting SStWW core on my list, trying to stay strong.
Now there's so much on it I can't even copy and paste it without running out of RAM.

Will I finally jump onto the EVO train?
Thinking about OACE and either LCOT or SSE (leaning towards OACE and LCOT).

LCO strings is also temptinng.

Or will I go the Albion route with the bundle since I don't have any of those yet?
If not the bundle then there's still Tundra on my list as solo purchase.

Also if the studio orchestra bundle will get well discounted I might just jump on that...but I don't think I'd need it since I have CSS, CSSS and CSB for this.

Right now I'm leaning towards SStWW (need that) + OACE and LCOT.
Prove me wrong?

The only sure thing is Kinematic and it's not entirely impossible that it will be the only thing I am going to buy in spite of all the stuff that's on my wish list.

I really shouldn't be reading this thread. I have enough orchestral libraries to last until black friday at least. But I did put a few things on my list. Only 6 or 7. Sigh. And it sounds like I won't have to worry about emails as they are going to give the codes right on the wishlist.

Checked my price for Albions 3 and 4. Under $192 each with all the discounts. But I have to buy both.

On the other hand, the Aluphone will be about $30

Maybe it's a dumb question but it doesn't matter if I keep stuff on my wishlist that I don't necessarily plan on buying, right?
It won't impact the discounts I get?

Or should I try to keep everything on the list as close to what I really want to get as possible?

During the Xmas wishlist sale, it was applied to everything in your list regardless of what you had in there.

Thanks for the info!
Right now I'm looking at SStWW, OACE, LCOT and Tundra. Super excited for next week to play with the new toys :dancer:

It doesn't matter. I stock my wish list every time, and I only own two Spitfire products. I like to have options so I can consider all the way until the end whether I will buy anything.

Would you recommend SStO core or Albion One as a bread-and-butter orchestra (about same price in 2 days)?

SStO looks good because I'm not much into epic-hybrid stuff and individual sections means more control, but time is broken around me and I'm a bit tired of choosing between writing and mastering, so the A1 no-eq/compression/fx-required approach could be a big improvement to my workflow.

There's lots to love in Albion One. But note that, for instance almost all of the strings are in octaves. Which is great for that big trailer sound. But with SStS can give you, for instance, a very beautiful and expressive, delicate kind of sound in just the Vl 2 alone. You might be to layer lots of things in octaves to sort of approximate the Albion One's string with SStS - sort of. But you'll never be able to go the other way and get a more intimate sound with Albion One.

This is just one tiny example in one choir.

So ultimately - and I realize a lot of people don't want to hear this cliche - it just really, really fundamentally comes doesn't to what kind of music you most want to write.
