Calm down buddy. You were the one insulting people. I asked a few legit questions from a pure support point of view, being beta tester for some leading audio software developers since over 30 years. You did not reply to any of those, although you could have simply said "all checked - no solution". That would have been perfect, but obviously not your cup of tea. Instead you were suggesting that other testers did hide these issues ON PURPOSE, which is an absolute no-go, because NOBODY I KNOW would every do this! But hey ... these are days of the internet, so what do I expect.
Where is this proof that I've gone around "insulting people"? I gave you a clear retort and a means to prove me right or wrong, as you were questioning whether I was telling the truth or not. I have not accused anyone of testing the library and not reporting problems. The evidence suggests that these problems were either a) not found during the beta testing, but eventually found by customers, or b) were in fact reported during testing, and Auddict disregarded these issues and released the library anyway. The problems are specific for certain mic positions, during certain articulations at certain dynamics. They are just as easy to miss as they are to find. I think you may have misconstrued my defence of truth as an attack on testers and reviewers. Like I said, the proof is there for many users of this library. It was not my intent to personally offend you or be short with you - from my perspective you appeared to be saying I was just making all this up and it wasn't true. I apologise for that confusion.

However one wishes to interpret amyone's motives, QC competence, marketing or whatever, the objective, indisputable fact is that these offending artifacts do exist in some of the samples.

I never noticed this before because I bought the library on one of those warehouse 80% off deals that was "too good to pass up", and confess I haven't used it much at all... But since the problems are clearly there, Cory should be commended for bringing the issue to light, and IMHO Auddict now has a responsibility to provide a fix. No reason to argue about anything.

also contacted auddict concerning some other issue with the legato transitions(I don't remember exactly what was the issue to be honest).
I can hear an occasional timing glitch in the legato that causes a faint, annoying whooping sound on a couple of notes.

Well, I have Cinematic Strings 2 and some patches are full of these pops and noises and thuds. And since I think there's like 0 percent chance it will get any update, I just use de-click and de-noise plugins on those tracks, I'm really happy with the result and the problem is solved. Do I wish those patches were without those problems right out of the box? Of course. But now when I know there are some options how to overcome the problem, I'm ok with using those libs. But I don't want to say it's ok to release something like that. I still needed to make an additional purchases to get rid of the problems, which is not a good sign.

Haven‘t used it in a while but I can‘t remember that they had those, gotta look into that later...
Yeah it‘s not good to release stuff like that, I think the low sustain strings from OTs MA1 for example have one or two detuned notes somewhere (if I remember correctely) where I can‘t understand how no one realized that. Or the legatos from HZ strings...though at least Spitfire works on it and will update hopefully soon

Load something like Basses pizz or shorts, full of thuds and noises. Or the lowest octave of Celli legato has really noticeable click in the legato transition. Some Violions and Violas shorts have clicks and pops, etc.

We are going through all samples now - moved to top priority. No excuses at all, we have a lot more BETA testers now and QC before releases than we used to (we need to, with such fast and unexpected growth). All users can expect new links delivered to them very soon with a download to the Master Brass with all samples checked and if necessary, cleaned - of course this will be interchangeable with the existing version, so users can simply swap the library (or indeed just the samples folder) out. Biggest apologies for this!

Thank you for coming back, I look forward to the fixed version.

Well, gave up waiting for an email from Auddict, so I emailed Auddict directly using the address above... days later, still waiting for any reply/links... :sad:

Just to give you a bit of hope, I did contact them using the same address and received the update. They did take about three days to get back to me. I had a quick skim through the presets and the clicks and pops do seems to be generally improved, although I haven't had a chance to test extensively.

Good luck!

I sent an email in June, with the proof of purchase, and never got an answer.

hmm. I haven't heard anything either. It's really strange behavior as they stated here two months ago than an update was imminent.
