The same two I use as well. My only problem with the VSL one is that it can get a little washed out sounding in an orchestral mix. Almost a little hollow. Still, I can get it to sound nearly identical to the clarinet in John William's piece The People's House from Lincoln.I like the VSL Clarinet and the Embertone Herring Clarinet. The VSL I mostly use in an orchestral context. The Embertone has such a sweet tone and great legato and sounds great in exposed settings.
I agree. I loved the fluidity in the demos, purchased it, but ran into the same double voices issue. I like Embertone products, but ended up not using it.Am I the only one who hears the “sounds like two instruments “ with legato issue or am I just the only one it bothers? Because otherwise I do really like it.
I just recently bought and am slightly disappointed as well. I haven't fully explored its options in detail, so it's a bit premature for me to say, but I can certainly confirm that I was hoping for a darker tone. Also, it's playability doesn't seem as fluid as the new Popelka bassoon.I'm curious about the Embertone. I bought it because many say they like it, but I find it unusable because of the egregiously bad looping in the legato mode.
Darn! Was hoping the Fluffy would be the one for this time .... 8Dio is on the list as well, along with Herring.I have used the Audio modelling one and I find it very versatile but most of the time I go back to the Embertone Herring (the Audio modelling flute is amazing for non orchestral). I have demo'd the fluffy woodwinds and found that for some reason they don't do it for me although they are really nice.
Thank you! I was beginning to think that either I had a flawed install, was hearing things that do not exist, or was being shunnedI agree. I loved the fluidity in the demos, purchased it, but ran into the same double voices issue. I like Embertone products, but ended up not using it.
