  1. Well, that's annoying. I have Acoustica Standard 7, but that doesn't give me the upgrade for free. Never mind. btw: Remix exists within Acoustics Standard under the Tools tab. It is integrated not stand alone. I'd be interested to know if there is any difference between this version and the stand alone version.
  2. @kitekrazy it's fantastic that you've put this on-line for free. You never know, you might get some work out of this Perhaps you should open a tip jar. I'm sure some good folk would pass on the support. I remember coming across a similar university project from Korea that sampled a ton of really obscure instruments (well, obscure for me), and I still use them regularly in my mixes as they add a bit of uniqueness to the mix. Completely free libraries sampled to perfection. I hope your Rhodes ends up being used in thousands of tracks so you can say, "hey, that's my baby!" BTW: I just downloaded via google drive without problems. Nice!
  3. Thanks, but this is a comparison between the different version of RX10, not RX7-10, which is what I intended. Sorry if that was not clear from my post.
  4. Is it different from other versions of Rx beyond the obvious new interface look?
  5. Video demo looks great. I wish I had this 20 odd years ago. It would have made my life so much easier. Has anyone tried it in string instruments such as a guitar? I often find de noisers fail miserably there.
  6. I'm guessing from this that I probably need install the beta 16.08 before the proper release. I'll see if the beta installers are there. Nope. Just checked. I can see from the KVR Melda forum that others have had issues with this release.
  7. Anyone else have difficulty installing this update? I hadn't updated my melda fx in a while, but when I did the installation it just gave me an empty folder for 16.8 I tried installing the previous build 16.7 and that worked just fine. Any ideas on why this might be?
  8. I've downloaded it and will have a play when I get back from travelling. Demos sound great. Let's see if I can get that kind of sound from them I wonder why Synful have decided to put it out there for free now? Does anyone else get the feeling that many of these older developers are retiring and putting their babies out there for free? Or perhaps they don't have enough of a user base to warrant maintaining a website and payment portal. If you look at the forum, it's not very active, so I'm guessing they are on the tail end of the bell-curve. I'm certainly not complaining though. It's great to be able to use software that would have previously been outside of my price range, and I wish all of them the best of luck with whatever they decide to do in the future.
  9. Decent Samples have released a free Mandolin sample library. https://www.decentsamples.com/product/stella-mandolin/ They also have other freebies on their site of oddball things such as a desk lamp, a kettle, but also rare instruments such as a Folk Art Violin and Banjo. Worth checking out.
  10. I don't know if it's just down to rising cost of living, shrinking salaries or plugin saturation...I think the whole music scene is in a bit of a rut, and that has a knock on effect. I know musicians who have struggled to recover post pandemic. They are looking for new ways to make a living. I see big names selling off their catalogues. I see new Spotify releases being churned out, multiplying faster than rabbits on heat. And I don't see any quality control. Audiences are being stretched thinly. Returns on investment are diminishing. It all contributes to more hesitation when pushing that PayPal button. While the CEOs of tech companies take on god-like statuses (and salaries), they spit the crumbs to the creators. On a personal note. I've stopped hoarding worthless software as I just cannot justify it to myself anymore. A few months ago I was even considering selling off my guitars and music hardware. I just couldn't see a reason to keep churning out this stuff anymore. I've only just started writing again.... Nearly half a year since my last release. *Bad case of the Black Dog
  11. But why are they all going for free? Is it end of life product dumping?
  12. As someone who has only just got Scaler2 and has only tried it for an hour, it's great for generating chord progression ideas which you would not have come up with on your own. For me, I'm stuck in a creative rutt at the moment. I put a lot of love into my last release, but I'm now looking for something new. I'm hoping scaler is going to help me there.
  13. I don't know if this is only a temporary offer, but pluginboutique.com are giving 20% off for 1 Reward+ Token. If you have any rewards lingering about in your account, it give you a slightly better discount than the 16% off normally offered. Add to that any virtual cash, and you've got a pretty sweet deal. Now I've just got to learn how to use it....
  14. Hold on!!!! ๐Ÿค” 80% + 20% ? So, basically......free?
  15. Steel slide.....simply dreamy.
  16. I think you're getting yourself confused. This thread was about the fact that Spitfire Audio has added the piano to the BBC SO. Before this update there wasn't a piano. Now there is. That's all. If you own the BBC SO Pro, why would you want to buy the piano separately? Just update your Pro version using the Spitfire app. And in all honesty, the piano is not that great. I've got 2 go-to pianos that I always use, and I cannot see BBC SO piano replacing either of them. Save your money for something else.
  17. As @Promidi said....๐Ÿ‘
  18. Updated today. I deleted the .vst3 tag from the folder immediately and then opened CbB, did an immediate scan and, viola, all working fine. No issues this time around. Nice to have another piano. Thanks Spitfire.
  19. I've been using it without problems for quite a while now. There was an initial teething problem with the brand take over, but the updates resolved these about 6 months ago. I haven't checked out the newest update. Hopefully it will be even better. ๐Ÿ‘
  20. I can see how someone might want that MOTU. It's a beast. However, I don't know if anyone would be interested in the FA-101, which was more of a mobile soundcard. Prices on Reverb.com for a similar Edirol FA-66 go from 100-200 Euros (but that only means sh#t if someone actually buys it). While on Ebay I see the FA-101 listed for anything from 50 (for parts) to 200 Euros. But again, don't mean diddly if no-one buys it. Hell! I should just list it.
  21. Is there still a market in second-hand Firewire gear? I've got an old Edirol Fa101 which I cannot use anymore after upgrading to a new laptop, so I was thinking of selling it, but when I look on Ebay, no one seems to be buying them. It's a real shame because, in its day, it was a great piece of kit. Is there a place where old music gear is bought and sold which might suit this type of stuff better? Anyone know?
  22. I received an email from Westwood that their (already) excellent Alt Piano has been rebuilt from the ground up, and a free update is available for all existing users. If you already own the Alt Piano, check your email boxes for a new serial number and installation instructions. https://www.westwoodinstruments.com/
  23. My teenage son tells me that these films are faked. He read it somewhere on the internet....so it must be true!
  24. ...and then those bitchin about the bitchers bitchin... ...anyone for a brew?
