Re: Free Native Instruments plugin - Phasis

Just to report it installed hitch-free for me on Windows 10 Pro and Cubase 9.0.20. Sounds mighty fine.

Re: U-he Repro-5: Released

(just an errata - I said this was the same as Release Candidate 1, which is incorrect - there was a Release Candidate 2 which I missed, and this is the same as the actual release.)

(Oh, and installed the skin from Funkybot's Evil Twin and it is quite gorgeous).

Re: U-he Repro-5: Released

Usually skins bore me, but I thought I'd point out some that someone on KVR has done for Repro 1 and 5. They're very tasteful and a little clearer to my eye, and (yes this is nerdy) the knobs on the 5 now look like the Prophet 5. Nice for freebies, I'll be trying them out over the weekend - http://w...

They did say it didn't work on a Cubase Mac, but didn't mention Windows. A fix is coming for the Mac, they say.

Re: U-he Repro-5: Release Candidate 1 is out

Yes indeed, I see its the same as Release Candidate 1. It's still on offer til Jan 1st for 99 euros (+applicable taxes) for the combo, rising to $149 next year. IMO it's a helluva bargain.

EDIT - it's actually the same as Release Candidate 2, which I missed.

I honestly haven't noticed anything phasey about the percussion Paul - I see there's new mixes there though so maybe they've tweaked something.

I'm not quite sure Larry, it's free for ONE owners, and just noticed its also discounted for new customers too (added to the OP) - does anyone know about an upgrade from 1? If it were £99 I'd say that was definitely worth it. Really do love the strings in ONE - buttery but a nice bite and huge range...

A new name in the industry!

The modwheel switches between dynamic layers and increases/decreases vibrato, although there is not that much vibrato since a poll of Classical composers apparently didn't want it and that is how EW decided to go. http://www.talkclassical.com/13016-vibrato-straight-tone-choral.html.

Re: Hollywood Choirs

Just catching up... Kyle, it's pretty unhelpful imo to say that Jay's A/B is worthless, it clearly isn't. Obviously it shows the spatial difference, and that Hollywood Choirs is much more present especially in the sopranos and altos, but perhaps most significantly there's a lot more vibrato with SC ...

Re: Arturia V Collection 6

It depends what you're after really Jay. u-he really are the masters of exact specific details of a model. And with repro-1 / 5, they are just gorgeously rich. But of course that's just one model of one synth. Personally I don't so much care that its an exact emulation, but I do care that is sounds ...

Re: Arturia V Collection 6

Yes, I have v5 and it's largely pretty good. Much has been made of their analogue emulations not being up to, say, u-he standards and it's true there's a difference, but its not always in-your-face apparent. There's a richness about repro-1 and 5 that Arturia don't quite nail along with the precise ...
