  1. Just checked as not having standalone would have been a deal breaker for me. And Standard is standalone (and will also host) phew !
  2. Logged into my Izotope a/c and I can get Standard 9 for £99. PB are less than half that at£45. It's valid till 1st Aug. So will wait till then to see what freebie PB offer by then.
  3. Been checking the content of Standard against Elements. And it seems to go into the depth I prefer when mastering. I had seen the subscription talk about Izotope and a merger could be on the cards for the future. Not so sure how that would affect me as a user of both Komplete 13 and potentially Izotope 9 Standard. If I invest in IZ now .could I find a better package down the line from both NI and IZ? I'm not an advocate of subscription. So may pull the trigger on this one.
  4. Had an email from PB offering Izotope 9 Standard at 80% off (£44). as I'm a "valued customer" blah,blah, with a special code. Thing is. I have Izotope Elements 9, and found it lacking for mastering, ok for individual tracks. I also have IKM TRacks 5 .It just has a few processors ,(9) and again I don't use it much as I feel it is always running "hot" and use parts on tracks. But do always master on my old Soundforge 10. And trust it. Is there anything about IZ Standard 9 that makes it different to the Elements, IKM, old Soundforge. As it seems a good deal costwise. And anyone else had the email?

    I thought it appropiate to inform the listeners of this track. That it appeared on the best of for the month of June on Pianobook. The consequence of which is that it was selected and I won a free copy from Spitfire Audio of Originals - Cinematic Pads. A big thanks to you for the listens, & support here. And to Christian Henson and Simon Fyffe at Spitfire/Pianobook. Woohoo !!
  6. I noticed when I placed an octave shift on the trumpet to get that Jon Hassell sound. It altered the tone of the whole thing. The high end of the trumpet went. And the lower freq seemed to get boosted more across the whole. I cut the pads to compensate. Without the shift on the trumpet it did not have the same vibe. I use both Sennheiser and AKG headphones. And it seemed balanced. But this was a fast, inspirational thing done very quickly. And it may well be that my ears were missing things by the end. Glad you like it though.

    On Off World

    From the latest on Pianobook - OnOff scrapes by Martin Russ . And found sounds, and a bit of LABS from Spitfire. Sadly we lost the great Jon Hassell recently. And it's my poor homage to a master.
  10. Update went ok. But it then trashed my Reaktor 6. Had to uninstall and re-install. Not pleased.
