  1. Kontakt Hub has been running a 50% off sale on all Hideaway Studio stuff. I should have mentioned this sooner, but there's only 2 days left. These are LOW cost, HIGH quality, analog Kontakt instruments. (Full Kontakt only.) I highly recommend String Studios 1 &2, Orbitone Collection 1 &2, and the Pentodian Resonator Choir. Check them out: https://www.kontakthub.com/label/Hideaway-Studios/ Don't just take my word for how good these are - check out these articles & reviews from Soundbytesmag: https://soundbytesmag.net/?s=hideaway
  2. I like Tonebooster's Barricade 4. Transparent and inexpensive too. https://www.toneboosters.com/tb_barricade_v4.html
  3. The latest Jamstix Beta version has been mapped to MODO DRUM, so it's only a matter of time for the official release. (And users are allowed to try the Beta version if they are so inclined.) https://www.rayzoon.com/updates.html
  4. "Oh man, if I could only get a chance to try that organ in Weimar... I could probably create something REALLY good." --Johann Sebastian Bach
  5. Jamstix... and yes, there is a free, though basic, version available. https://www.rayzoon.com/#free_version
  6. It's a little annoying but at least it only takes a minute to fix. (The length of time it takes for the Windows update is much more annoying than the XLN update fix.)
  7. I grabbed it and it's excellent. If you can still get it for $99, I highly recommend it. Zinc nailed it when he called it a "song inspiration" tool.
  8. Would this notemapper help? https://www.codefn42.com/notemapper/index.html
  9. The origin of the Seinfeld show?
  10. Check out RipChord - this is a freebie VST3 from Trackbout. It's like the chord portion of Cthulhu (no arpeggiator) but even easier to use. And there is a community of folks offering their chord presets for use in the program. Here it is: https://trackbout.com/ripchord
  11. I too have a Crucial MX500 2TB... it's worked perfectly - I use it exactly for the OP's intended use - sample storage. And $183 is a GREAT price. I thought I had gotten a good deal last year for much more ($265?). It's nice to see SSD prices keep dropping - eventually, they will be the standard drive format.
  12. Clerk: Do you swear on the Constitution of the United States to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God? Witness: Ain't no thing. [slaps the clerk's book and the clerk uses his book to slap the witness's hand as if "giving fives" to each other] Defense Attorney: [approaches the witness as he sits down in the witness stand] Would you describe in your own words, what happened that night? Witness: Yo! Check it, bleed. Bro... was on! Didn't trip. But the folks was freakin', man. Hey, and the pilots were laid to the bone, Home. So Blood hammered out and jammed jet ship. Tightened that bad sucker inside the runaway like a mother. Shit. ["Mr. Striker performed exceptionally. The passengers were very concerned. The pilots were incapacitated. So Mr. Striker took control and landed that plane safely. Golly!"] [the stenographer wears sunglasses and sways back and forth as he types]
  13. I had some funds at PluginBotique, so luckily InstaChord (and expansions) only cost me $7. Let me say this - I wasted $7. Do not buy this product if you know anything about music. I will never use it again. BTW, I have Scaler and that has some good uses. And Cthulu for $39 is FAR more useful/powerful than InstaChord. And if you can play basic chords (but not much more than that) on a keyboard, then I highly recommend Chord Potion.
  14. I can't comment on EzDrummer, but I think JamStix is the top drum VST in the market. The problem with it is the learning curve, but once you spend time with it, there is nothing that can compare. Plus it allows you to use any drum kits you may already have. And it even allows you to import your favorite drum patterns from other drum packages. (Depending on the software, you might have to make a midi file first, but others like AD2 can drop a pattern directly into JamStix.) The UJAM drummers are perhaps the easiest to use drum VSTs and that is probably their biggest strength.
  15. I had read about problems on the NI forum that the 6 PLAYER was causing issues with K5 FULL. That's why I decided to wait till the NI sale and have now got K6 and K5 on my system and can report absolutely no problems. I use Reaper and it's a simple matter of using a text editor to change any previous projects that had been using the various versions of K5 (varying # of outputs) to using K6.
