  1. It'll look something like this in Native Access Kontakt Factory Selection is a cutdown version
  2. Very cool - I do love the GEM series. The three that practically go on all my mixes are: Comp76FET Comp LA Dopamine
  3. If you don't mind me asking, what type of music do you write?
  4. It is indeed. When finishing a song I always use insight as it helps me target -14 LUFS Integrated (average over the whole song) among other measurements. But also, Tonal Balance is fantastic for getting a balanced sound - trying to get your song to fit inside the target envelope is quite challenging though! I also love the maximizer and stereo widener modules from Ozone Advanced too!
  5. Nothing wrong with that. For me it started off with presets, then wanting to tweak the sounds to fit, and then deciding I should have a go. Most of the sounds in preset packs sound better than what I can make - curiosity just got the better of me.
  6. Agree with you there. Patch creation was always something I said I'd get to 'one day' but never did. Then fairly recently I decided it was something I had to do, having bought Phase Plant. I found getting started quite difficult, and the animated UIs definitely helped me. Same with Pigments - lots going on, so the animations really help. I can't comment about Vital as I've not looked at it, but it seems very cool. (I know there's a free version; does anyone know if the other tiers ever go on sale?) As far as the other tools I mentioned go, I had FabFilter in mind, as well as iZotope's Insight and Tonal Balance.
  7. I'd say in some cases that a 'flashy' UI can make a plugin easier to use, e.g. when you're programming a synth patch It can be helpful to see where you are on the ADSR envelope in real time as you play the note (helps someone understand the concept better too) Animating the LFOs can help you see what's going on with the sound you're shaping It's helpful to see which frame in a wavetable you're on and how quickly the frame transitions If you're morphing oscillator waveform e.g. between square and sine, it's useful to see what the shape is With a compressor/limiter, it's helpful to see before/after of the waveform as well as the compression level graph (or gain reduction meter) to see if you're hitting the threshold With EQs the analyser is useful to see if there are any spikes in your signal, as well as seeing the results of boosting/cutting. Realtime feedback on a goniometer is useful when checking for phase compatibility, though you can do this by flipping to mono I know they say mix with your ears, but sometimes it's useful to have a visual indicator too - especially if someone doesn't have perfect hearing
  8. Screenshot from the help page: If you buy something to get the freebie, the item you buy counts as a "new paid purchase", so yeah - that works
  9. Just a heads-up: I just logged into my PB account. It might be that I've not been very observant in the past, but I've just noticed that Virtual Cash now has a one-year expiry timeout. According to the help page, buying something will add to your virtual cash (as before) and reset the timer back to 365 days.

  16. Just flag it by renaming your post as 'DUPLICATE - DELETE', and they'll delete it for you
  17. Drums are coming through a lot better in the new mix. Great job!
  18. Back when I was starting out, I remember really wanting to own some Waves plugins one day - maybe a bundle even. Things moved on, and I ended up buying plugins from other developers. Might the Waves ones be better, or let me make better music than with the plugins I have today? Don't know, maybe; maybe not. I'm fairly certain of two things though: My overall sound isn't too bad I'm glad I don't have to deal with their licencing/WUP
  19. I think those vouchers are only valid for PA's plugins; iZotope/NI might be excluded. That text was probably written before the companies integrated their respective storefronts. I could be wrong on that though - I'm not signed up, so didn't read the T&Cs in too much detail.
  20. Unfortunately, I think it's just a recorder: it's more press record, hit play, and wait in real time; rather than hit export.

  22. VIBRANT • PROFOUND • ETERNAL CHROMA personifies the ageless beauty of the piano. Painstakingly recorded from a world class Yamaha C3, it fully captures the sonic exuberance of the ideal piano sound. It is not only the perfect recreation of the acoustic properties, but also a full exploration of the instrument. From the profundity of the single note, to mallets, pads, and e-bow, able to create rich and inspiring soundscapes – CHROMA is more than a piano, it is the experience of the piano itself. CHROMA is the new SONUSCORE flagship piano CHROMA offers 4 freely adjustable microphone positions CHROMA has a unique core engine that both recreates the piano’s original sonority and also creates new and abstract soundscapes CHROMA comes with an adjustable velocity curve to match the dynamics of nearly every piano keyboard https://sonuscore.com/shop/chroma-grand-piano/
  23. Just something to be aware of: I looked into this a bit more when it went on sale previously. Don't know if anything's changed, but from a previous review, there is no way to export your animations. You'll have to do a real-time record, and then sync your audio.
