Re: Softube / NI bundle sale up to 75% off

I tried Heartbeat a while back and it didn’t make it - for starters, no sequencer on board so it’s a big Negative for me.
Modular was at 39€ a coup’e of weeks back, so it will come back I’m sure. And yes there

On VIC, Charlie Closer writes interesting comments about it too. He's adopted it, but note as a master buss FX but on individual tracks, to make some of them pop up.

Re: Adagietto Flash Sale - $48 until the 1st of July

Thanks folks - got my eye on $48 worth of pizza. I just thought I should let everyone know that due to a quite astonishing quirk of fate I am eating pizza at the Adaggio restaurant in Paris, and between us the mains will probably be about $48. We should in fact be in Turin but... it’s a loooong sto...

Re: Adagietto Flash Sale - $48 until the 1st of July

Is it me - and my set up - or the legato don’t work at-all ???
Other than that, for 48 bucks, it’s very interesting - rather dry if ones want it that way.
In a pop-electro context, I think I’ll find some good use.

Re: 25% off any u-he product til end August

Bear in mind though u-he allows licence reselling so there ´s always the option to buy a piece of beautiful algo anytime of the year - providing you haunt KVR and the like... I’ve bought Zebra and Repro that way.

Re: Omnisphere 2.5: Hardware Synth Integration and double voice architecture

Erik - yes, I’ve sort of moved away from the boutique idea for that very reason. The System 1m feels like a good possible compromise though. Out of interest, are you on Windows? Are your CPU struggles related to Granular patches? I’d have thought that these new patches needn’t be that CPU intensive...

It's not fully sample based, it has digital (DSP) oscillators as well (like those in Prophet-12). The filters sound absolutely yummy on this one. But yeah it only has 150 GB of samples because 8dio cannot sample things efficiently, haha. :P Could you elaborate on this comment Mario ? As I said I’ld...

Re: Orchestral Tools Metropolis Ark 3

Thanx Jaap !
I've made up my mind since it's became too pricey after the intro offer,anyway.
I ended up buying virtual pianos and virtual synths rather than orchestral offerings - I already have too much of them for the use I actually have.

Re: Vengeance Producer Suite - Avenger synth [1.3.1 FM cross modulation out now]

YEs, I like Massive a lot, I mean programming it.
I concure with you Guy, about Repro 1 not being that easy - the modulation section. Avenger and Omni have really something to say in the GUI department, for sure :-)
