What did you buy from Spitfire's Wishlist?

I think I will buy OACE, The OA toolkit and North 7, play around with them tomorrow and then decide whether to add SSoS and/or SStS core.

I'm also deciding between the Whitacre choir and BHCT.
Tough decision. I have BHCT. It is different because of the combinations. I esp dig the chord articulatiins (mixed flutes!).
I don't have EWC and did not add to my wishlist because I never anticipated a discount above edu for this new library. If I had add it, I probably would have bought it, since that labs fragment is so nice.

How are the servers running in the western US? Thinking about the bespoke drive route.

Gonna walk around the block a few times, then if the concept still seems less than insane, I'll release the plastic.

Upgrade to Chamber Strings Pro (because it costs almost nothing, now)
Bernard Herrmann Toolkit (because I should have got it long ago)
London Chamber Orchestra (because it's sooo different)
Studio Strings Pro (because it's The Future...maybe)
Studio Brass Pro (because it's The Future...maybe)

When I learned to play the piano, I somehow got by with an out-of-tune upright painted light blue-green. Maybe I'm over compensating.

PS: those of you I see on the fence about Tundra...just do it! Strings are awesome, especially so for softer choral accompaniment, start with EWC Evo #41. Winds and brass aren't a lot of use for mainstream stuff, but they do things otherwise not available. The sound design stuff and Vral are a big meh! for me, but maybe not for you. Tundra seems almost application-specific to Arvo Part type compositions, and in that sense there are very few libs that hold together as cohesively as does Tundra.
Never had a problem downloading from Spitfire

My gut says you should go with EW, If you don't mind being limited to his style largely. You've been eyeing it some time, and you've said you're not sure how you'd fit BHCT into your workflow yet. Get EWC now and BHCT next Christmas if you still want it.

Treat yoself ;)

@Bill the Lesser aren't the hard drives a not more expensive? I wouldn't get them unless you're desperate.
The drives are $80, but then you've got a backup and probably space to backup other stuff as well.

The problem with Spitfire downloads in my location is that they invariably run at 30mbps over my last several downloads. 13 hours for EWC, so snailmailing the drive might even be almost as fast. OTOH Continuata is invariably 300mbps. Ahem...just sayin.

wasn't aware it was that cheap. Now I'm tempted with that as well!

Well, I’ve been downloading Largo all day. It got stuck at 76%, so I’m doing a manual download. Only I’m not watching it closely, so downloading 5 files at a time and checking back in an hour or 3 to find it is done and start the next set. I think there are over 50 files. Sigh. The hard drive sounds good.

Decided against Bohemian since I bought Eric WhiteTaker and went for only these Southampton strings.

Decided to not partake, this time. Lots of things I want, not so sure about what I actually need. I went through my music PC yesterday and am close to running out of space on several drives, so have ordered a new hard drive instead. So upgrading my PC a little is a better use of funds at the moment.

send them a support ticket request.

they just now responded to mine.

can't hurt to ask.

When did you send your ticket? I sent one too as I haven't received any codes so far, despite checking with their support I was indeed subscribed to their newsletter beforehand...

Hmm, not sure what it going on this time. We only have a few days left and I remember someone here saying that they would be off until the 26th. Not sure I will get an email on time now o_O
