Re: VSL Synchron Strings I

Seem to be the only one, but I rather like the overall sound of these strings. It's unobtrusive, classy, cultured. Looks like it could be a very versatile sound signature. There are a few things I am less fond of here and there, but overall I am quite happy with what I am hearing so far.

Re: Coming November: VSL Synchron Strings I

Only now had access to my monitoring setup to hear the trailer video. I don't know what Tanuj is hearing, but I like the sound. I think the piece of music is a rather poor fit for the strings sound, and there is definitely too much close mic mixed in for that kind of music. But the sound per se I li...

Re: Fiedler Audio / Stage (placement and stereo-toolkit plugin)

The pricing is geared towards postpro studios, not composers. We'll have to see if Spat revolution offers added value for composers over Spat. The good thing is that Spat Revolution may push prices down for second hand Spat licenses. But then again it's not like that it's impossible to get perfectly...

Re: Sonokinetic 5-day Sale (till 12 Sep): 40-60% off on some items

jneebz I hear you. I love the Sonokinetic sound and their recording philosophy, but phrase-based libraries don't suit my workflow. I'm lookimg forward to their 'multisampled' ochestral libraries. The woodwind ensembles are a promising start, but again not what suits my workflow.

Re: Fiedler Audio / Stage (placement and stereo-toolkit plugin)

"Spat Revolution is a tool for professionals, so it will cost around 1000$" - didn't the IRCAM guy say something like that in the video? If you can't afford Spat, have a good look at Magix Independence Origami. It doesn't hold up to Spat feature-wise - it is closer to VSS in that regard - ...

Re: Orchestral Tools / Berlin Orchestra 'Inspire'

It packs a lot of content for the price, especially the intro price. The really down to the most essential articulation list and the fact that most patches are several instruments in one patch restrict its usefulness to sketching only, though. I would have been interested if it was closer to VSL Spe...

Re: oooo MIR room for Synchron?

Well right now MIR supports "various surround formats on up to 8 output channels". Maybe they bring it up to line with Synchron Percs 9.1, but only VSL can answer that.

Re: oooo MIR room for Synchron?

The one audio demo is really unsuitable to give an impression of that Room Pack, what with the Synchron Percussion being mixed in and no indication of what other tools were used on the cue. No way around downloading the demo if you are interested in it. I demoed MIR some time ago and found that it d...

Re: Auddict releases "United Strings Of Europe"

Am I the only one who is not too keen on the sound in the first place? I was very interested when I read small string sections recorded at Cadogan Hall. Unfortunately that interest decreased quickly upon hearing the video demo. Not a desireable sound quality to my ears, and the timbre sounds a bit c...

Re: Musical Sampling / Trailer Strings

The demos have an awful lot going on around the strings, but oddly they don't sound very good to me. Maybe it's too many players recorded from too close? They don't have that organic, breathing quality that I love about the string orchestra. In the beginning of Blakus' demo you hear the strings most...

Re: VSL release Solo Violin 2 and Solo Cello 2

Unfortunately I have to agree with the 'don't like'-camp. The Brahms-demo especially sounds as if filtered to my ears. Strangely that's true for the piano as well, so it might be something about the MIR-settings chosen. In any case I don't particularly like the tone of the cello. The one in the solo...

Re: Sonokinetic Woodwind Ensembles

Sonokinetics approach of recording in a concert hall as opposed to a scoring stage is very interesting to me. The decca tree sounds mighty fine to my ears. Articulation list and the patch organisation/customizeability both look good. I don't need ensemble winds, but the whole series is definitely on...

Re: Violinist's world tour outsells Metallica, Ed Sheeran, Rod Stewart and Beyoncé.

He is a cunning businessman indeed. His tours can cost several millions, which he finances privately. So he is taking big financial risks. If a tour doesn't sell well, the loss is on him. With that model he did very well so far, and he created employment for musicians, technicians and so on. For thi...
