I bought Embertone's Mountain Dulcimer a month or two ago on a different sale, and unexpectedly ended up using it on my last album. I discovered the library works great for adding a warm sheen to an acoustic guitar rhythm track.I've only played with it briefly so far, but it's great!
It's one of our favorites - it doesn't get enough love!!I bought Embertone's Mountain Dulcimer a month or two ago on a different sale, and unexpectedly ended up using it on my last album. I discovered the library works great for adding a warm sheen to an acoustic guitar rhythm track.
Is there a code for the sale. Is $49 the reg price or sale price. Thanks interested in thisWhat instrument or plugin did you discover for the first time during Black Friday and purchase?
And if you care to say, what impressed you enough to buy it?
For me there's no question. It's the DDMF Metaplugin. It is the ugliest plugin I have ever seen, but I am pretty sure it is going to change the way I work going forward.
The basic idea is that you can save an instrument with an effects chain in a single file. Load up Metaplugin, load the file and you have everything. There are many plugins that do that kind of thing. But...
- It will let you load up a VST3 in a host that only handles regular VSTs
- You can load up 32 bit in 64 bit and 64 bit in 32 bit
- VST3 to AU wrapper, VST3 TO AAX
- Instrument Edition features 16 stereo outputs
- Effects version supports up to 8 channels
- and a lot of other stuff.
I thought I was buying this to be able to load the Reason Rack in Komplete Kontrol (which works), but I'm going to be using this to organize all my instruments. No longer will I be limited to the Kontakt instruments in Quickload and the other instruments in my memory.
Just create folders with your Metaplugin files. If you want to audition every piano plugin you have, you can do it rapidly with this. It won't matter if it is a Kontakt instrument or regular VST. It will pop up with the settings you like, and if you desire, the reverb or other effects you'd like to load up with it.
The only issue I have with it, is that these plugins will not come up with NKS.
But I love world music. If I want to audition all the Ouds I have, I can do it one after the other. And once I figure out which one works best for my piece, it's easy to reload that particular instrument.
The DDMF sale is supposed to end on Cyber Monday, but it's still on at this moment.
The hideous interface (why does it have that ugly type in the middle?) looks a little intimidating, but it scans your plugins easily and is a breeze to use once you figure it out. Double click on anything and it goes on the page. Connect MIDI IN to your instrument and then connect the instrument to effects or directly to audio out. Clicking on the instrument will bring up its interface.
Then save it. Load the file and your configuration will pop up.
There is a free demo, but you can't save patches with it.
Can you save a Kontakt preset that also loads a Pro-R, a Waves Compressor, a T-RackS EQ, and many other effects in a chain by various companies? I don't know how to do that, but maybe you can. But I know you couldn't stick 32-bit or AAX FX in there with your VSTs. If you have a host that won't take VST3s, then this will serve as a wrapper.Hey,
I don't think Icompletely understand the benefit DDMF. To me it sounds a bit like saving an instrument preset in Cubase. You open Kontakt or whatever, put some crazy processing on it and then you save that on an instrument preset. But this is not what you mean right?
Can you give me a link to Patchwork? I'm not familiar with it.I think Comet was the only one I'd never heard of before the sale. Everything else I got I had heard of but other sale stuff got in the way. Someone did say it was a disappointing BF, but I used the lack of major sales I was expecting (OT) to spend money where I wasn't expecting (JB violin)
How does DDMF compare to Patchwork? I think I can do a lot of that with Patchwork.
No, there was a 40% discount on this price during the sale.Is there a code for the sale. Is $49 the reg price or sale price. Thanks interested in this
Logic can do it this. It's like Kontakt's quickload, but includes all instrument and effects plugins as well as their settings.Can you save a Kontakt preset that also loads a Pro-R, a Waves Compressor, a T-RackS EQ, and many other effects in a chain by various companies?
Never heard of this developer before. I really like chiptune stuff, so I'm glad I read your post!
