Heres a sweet demo video by Alex Pfeffer if you haven’t seen it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeOnylw5sjg&feature=related

Just curious if anyone has got their hands on this yet? It seems really lush and playable in the low velocity range which I think La scoring strings and Symphobia kind of lack. I think I’m going to pick this up today! It seems like quite a deal for only 350 gbp.

Got it the day it came out. It’s incredible. An essential purchase for any serious composer. Sound quality particularly on high notes are better than Symphobia.

You won’t regret buying it if you get it.

I can’t wait to get it. As soon as I start my new job, and after I get back from being gone for the year, I am going to purchase it along with my new computer!

Yes, I have it also. Very lush sound, but not without its limitations.

I have two logos using it if you want to hear more examples:

I like it a lot. I find the shorts too sloppy and unusable outside of layering IMO but everything else is gold. Absolutley love the CS longs.

@ZtarrZound

Load up the close mics for the shorts and blend them 67 / 33 with the stage mic that loads as default.

Also, Spitfire libraries tend to include the full attack sound on their short patches, as that is what makes a violin a violin, etc…. Libraries like Symphobia / LA Scoring Strings, cut off the attack sound to make the patch more playable, but it sounds way more synthy / fake.

Simple solution is to record it and have it feel out of time, then select everything you recorded and move it back until its in sync. OR increase the ‘Record Delay Compensation’ in your sequencer.

Of course, that may seem like a lot of work :D – but that would be the solution if you wanted to make it work.

And yes, the CS longs are lovely :)
