  1. Yes, it looks like Cosmos has a ways to go. I started by adding my giant sample folder but it seemed to choke on it. So I have been adding subsets of my collection a folder at a time. I am up to 232932 samples now but it is still scanning. This thing is very slow. As Carl has said, you cannot rearrange the added folders and the grouping algorythms seem a bit wonky. You would think it would do a better job considering how slow it is. Plus, I really, really want a tree view. So my search for the perfect sample manager continues. Cosmos has potential and it may turn into a super tool. Just hope Waves can do it in a year so we don't have to WUP it to get the new features and bug fixes🤪.
  2. Looks like you should be able to remove the Waves Audio Folder, move to a new location and add it back in again.
  3. Pro tip. You can right click on a sample in Cosmos and select "Show in Explorer". On my Windows machine, this opens C:\Program Files (x86)\Waves\Data\Instrument Data\Waves Sample Libraries\Waves Audio Factory Pack
  4. Not sure if I should throw this into the mix, but you can run your plugins on multiple machines if you move your licenses to a USB stick. You won't be able to run them simultaneously and you may be hooped if your USB stick goes belly up or you loose it, but it is an option.
  5. Yes, I understand that. But what does "upgrades your synths to the 2.0 versions" really mean? What additional features does it add to version 1 synths?
  6. I wonder what is meant by SE "hosts previously purchased synths" while the full version "upgrades previously purchased synths". What do these upgrades entail?
  7. Did you buy 47 separate products from them recently? I received a survey for each soundpack I purchased recently.
  8. From what I understand, there are currently two Zero Gs. There is Zero G LTD which is a company, and the Zero G brand name under which Stefano releases his sample library. Stefano uses the Zero G brand name but releases his libraries through Xfonic. LTD.
  9. Yes, Cosmos is only standalone. I guess CR8 could be considered the plugin portion of Cosmos.
  10. It depends on what you mean by usable. I can drag and drop samples from Cosmos onto a track in my DAW without needing to use CR8. I can also drag a sample from Cosmos onto SampleOne, the Studio One sampler. If you are wanting to do more than that, for example to manipulate the samples, define loop points, change the speed, and a whole host of other things, then CR8 will allow you to do that. It is up to you to decide if CR8 is better than the sampler that comes with your DAW.
  11. I tried to use ADSR, but every time I add sample folder to a folder, the parent folder gets grayed out in ADSR and I have to remove the parent folder and add it back in again for ADSR to be able to access it again. I am guessing you have not seen this bug.
  12. It does scan subfolders but it does not have a subfolder view. This is actually is one of the features that I am disappointed to not see. I am also seeing that it is very slow to scan. I initially added my whole sample folder but it looked like it would take days if not weeks to tag the whole thing. Right now, I am just adding subsets of my collection to test it out.
  13. Stefano's full quote was "Ethera is distributed in primis by Zero-G, marketed through several channels, like Best Services and T+S. T+S and Zero-G are not the same entity." As Larry has just stated, they are two separate entities. There is a long discussion on VI-Control with people arguing this fact with Stefano. Kind of funny actually.
  14. I think Simon's post was more a comment on your use of all caps in your original post.
  15. Stefano Maccarelli has stated on the Sample Libraries' facebook page that T+S and Zero-G are not the same entity. So it looks like Zero-G's fortunes are not entwined in T+S's.
  16. Can you reference the Facebook page? Who is Russ Hughes?
  17. Was trying to decide on this one, but I have already spent my limit for February.
  18. In the past, I have gotten coupons if I have already purchased another product from the same company from APD. I wonder if that is the case here. CGOA is my first Sample Logic product so that could be why I did not get a coupon.
  19. Really? UVI Workstation allows you to import all your samples, and will automatically tag them? How does it do that? I haven't been able to figure out how.
  20. Click on the blue circle with the squigglies inside and it loads Cosmos so you can select a sample.
  21. Did not see it for 9.29. But when I added it to my cart, it also automatically added the FEB2022 coupon code which brought it down to $9.29. Plus I had 3.09 in deluxe bucks so that brought the price down to a couple of cups of coffee. Makes it worth a punt.
  22. I am sure you did, and if you didn't you should have.
  23. Nothing on their Twitter, Instagram or Facebook page. I really hope it is just a website redesign, but I doubt it. T&S has had good customer service in the past and I would hate to see them disappear.
