I had problems both uploading a new track and updating and existing track today. They both failed at the “processing” stage, but only once or twice. They then worked.
Great videos—so, all of the LASS patches are that shrill? You were able to make them sound great, except I always felt that their timbre was thin and, frankly, almost painful at high volumes. Do you find yourself continually having to tweak LASS to keep them sounding more ‘full’?
Additionally: Have you had problems with the HS legato transitions introducing weird artifacts? I’m not talking pops and clicks here—I mean odd dynamic shifts that aren’t in the expression data (I am always fighting this weird push transition—like a “yuh” at the end of each note in HS, especially on the bow change patches).
Anyway, great video—I really think it was enlightening! Maybe I’ll give LASS another look—being a solid EW fan, I of course only use HS currently.
I humbly suggest my own Arboreal Metamorphosis> http://audiojungle.net/item/arboreal-metamorphosis/5329203
Congrats, Adi! You’ve been kind enough to leave some encouraging comments on my work, and I really appreciate that. I’m glad to see someone so kind achieving success. Keep at it—you deserve it!
This is delightful. Thank you.
The problem is the Play engine – I am awaiting delivery of Storm Drum 3 which has a new implementation of a 64 Bit Play engine which apparently will rectify this issue. Kontakt on the other hand is so cool at streaming I can run several fully loaded instances of Project Sam without any problems each with an individual Compressor and reverb on each channel in Cubase.
I can easily max out 32GB of RAM with PLAY 4 (I preordered SD3 and have had it for a week or so), although it is much more efficient (CPU-wise) in my experience thus far.
I don’t have much experience with Kontakt so I can’t comment on it, but I hear a lot of good stuff out of 3rd party sample libraries like 8dio (I find personally the bundled stuff with Komplete sorely lacking).
Well Im hearing a lot of good stuff about east/west, I’m suprised i never found it [...]
I use eastwest stuff nearly exclusively, and love it. It can take a powerful machine to run it, so be warned. I was working on a string piece the other day in HS Diamond and maxed out my 32 GB of RAM. It produces some great sounds, but it takes some hefty stuff to run it well.
I use vocal samples for choir stuff—for that its EW Symphonic Choirs.
The improved Score view, which I read to be “a usable score editor”, is the most exciting part of this, for me.
Still, I’m waiting to see how this works for others, as I’m in the middle of a couple of projects and would rather not have to start them from scratch.
