What do you think the next big fad will be in sample libraries?

    It's too bad there always has a to be a "new fad" that threatens to render our expensive libraries obsolete, our instrumentation archaic, our idioms "clichéd", and our scoring techniques quaint. Here's to hoping that gum we like is going to come back in style.

    Funny thing is the library doesn't have much influence on your scoring technique. A new library shouldn't make a sound obsolete if you're not letting the library write for you :)

    It's hard to predict trends, we keep looking back to try to look forward but I don't think it will be that predictable. I'm excited to see where it all goes

    from a post elsewhere and keeping in mind I come from an academic research background where a lot of stuff coming to market is what we (in the academic community) prototyped many years ago - I think the next big thing will be "performers at the level of soloists and ensembles players, at the level of the individual performer. The score is entered in whatever manner one wants, analysed and then performed. analysis could be modified and / or learned in response to both user input, stylistic input and also through reanalysis of existing recordings.
    I would think most if not all of this could be done now at least at the level of research projects. So your string library can be "played" by emulated performers in a user defined manner"

    It's inevitable: the Elvis library.

    Speaking of Intelligent VIs, some of the very very young members here might actually live long enough to see something like the introduction of "neurologic" capable sample libraries that lets one recreate the music in/of the mind.

    All Synth based Soundtracks, no orchestral or acoustic sounds allowed ! :2thumbs:

    So.. Give your orchestral/acoustic libraries a break ;)
