I pretty much already know what I’m going to do, but…
When Komplete 9 Ultimate first came out I looked at the upgrade offerings from Komplete 8 Ultimate (which I own) and decided it wasn’t really worth the upgrade cost + the installation time, and decided that it was my “skip a version” version.
However, it looks like they’re having a 50% off promo which would make the upgrade cost around $200.00. Against my better judgment, I’m now considering it. There is a nagging voice in my head, probably my Ego, saying, “remember when you got Komplete 7 at a discount and they released 8 pretty much right after that?” And then my Id chimes in, saying “so what? It came in a big shiny package! And it was a really great discount!”
Anyone care to encourage me or talk me down? Is Session Horns really worth it? Can I live without The Giant? What do you think?
@ JHunger Is that you in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EjA7BCKZ1Ag
Yep – that’s how I record all my tracks . It’s a real bummer having to split the proceeds 5 ways, though.
BTW interesting about nylon strings for a banjo. I’d never heard of that before – shows how little I know.
Hey Dan, thanks for the article! This question has loomed large on my mind for upwards of 5 years now, and you’ve methodically confirmed the anecdotal conclusion I’ve arrived at. I should do a similar analysis of my own stats sometime and see where they align (or don’t align) with your findings.
BTW, for future posts on this thread we may want to refrain from mentioning other libraries by name. This is an interesting topic and I’d like to hear others’ opinions without it getting locked
Just saw this – congratulations, Luca!
Absolute cheers, Matt! You’ve done so much good work to deserve this, both with your music (obviously) and with your great ability with graphics and grasp of what’s going on out there in the stock world. You’ve also been happy to share so much great information that’s been invaluable to me, and I’m sure others, over the past few years. Big congratulations!
Nice samples, guys!
I bought a Deering Goodtime 2 a while back, and unfortunately never got into it, which is weird, because my main style of playing guitar is a lot of light finger picking. I spent some time trying to get down some of the basic rolls but my fingers never seemed to want to cooperate In fact, I may have been better starting off with a 6 string banjo as a transition.
Long and short of it is that I didn’t give it enough time to become comfortable, and I need to get back into it at some point. I have almost the same story with a mandolin that’s collecting dust as well. A lot of music that I like has both banjo and mandolin, so I really should pull them out of their cases and take another crack at it.
I’m not sure that nylon strings would give a more authentic banjo sound – as far as I know banjos are strictly steel string (but I could be wrong).
Yes! Great work, Ventsi! Awesome news and super well deserved!
Congratulations, Ryan! I know you’ve worked hard and smart to achieve this – what an awesome milestone!
