Sounds like rainstick(s), thunderplate(s) and large drums...
Thats exactly what i was talking about.Guy Rowland wrote:Oh good, an even bigger GUI with no new functionality! Huzzah!
Not surprised that they've re-released it, but what a wasted opportunity. No effects at all - it always was surprisingly bare, and still is. No groove engine - nada. Just - AFAIK - 1 mic mix in the basic version reduced from 4, and.... er..... NKS ready. Woot.
But wait, I forgot about the MARKETING.
Anders, you make a fair point. I am OK to pay $106 for the upgrade. But, what I find a little problematic is that they did not think things through well enough in the first place. Which is why the upgrade is happening.Anders Wall wrote:I wrote a half decent reply and then my cell lost connection to this site... talk about first world problems :-O
Lawrence, is this correct.
I do not mean to be bantering (is that the right word) so please don't take this the wrong way.
But, what you are saying is that companies that sell samples are not allowed to promote their products any other way than to include a picture with facts/specs about the product.
All else has something negative before "marketing".
If so, aren't we all in the "smoke and mirrors" business, don't we enjoy that kind of sh*t, and even if not what's wrong with a company to post a video basically saying that "something is coming..."
As far as I know they never said that something new is coming or even that something including samples is coming.
I'm still waiting for that book about Spitfire to get released, I'm the one who should be pissed about this
Tanuj, I paid €173 for my copy of HZ03 - London Soloists, that was with discount. (25% I believe).
If you don't need the Soloist then don't update, the old GUI is just fine.
But don't say that $107 isn't bargain considering the quality and usefulness of the samples AND the fact that some of us paid a lot more for the same content.
Not trying to start a brawl, but I feel that if this is how every Spitfire announcement will turn out then why even bother posting them here.
Frank, if you can wait I'll be installing this mid October.playz123 wrote:Would some kind person please check something out for me? In the HZ Timpani patch of this new library, it appears that CC11 is controlling Releases, NOT Expression (as mentioned in the manual) and CC17, which is supposed to control Releases doesn't appear to be doing anything. Re. CC11, I tried sending it from both an expression peddle and from a controller lane in Cubase, and both times it controlled Releases. CC11 seems to work as expected with the combo and individual patches though.
You are most welcome, Jack. But also please note the additional info I just posted above...after you responded. With the hotfix file, one can now reassign the CCs 'correctly'. But they still need to fix the default settings. I'm going to MIDI learn the correct assignments, and then just resave the file.Jack Weaver wrote:Thanks, Frank!
