  1. Chord Potion is my favorite plug-in of 2019. I am a crappy keyboard player, but I know how to play chords and I know how to voice lead from one chord to another. If you can do that, then Chord Potion will make your crappy keyboard playing come alive. Check out the demo and you might be shocked at what it can do. And of course you are not restricted to keyboard sounds - I can make elaborate symphonic stuff using Chord Potion to trigger programs like Amadeus, The Orchestra, Elysion, etc.
  2. I highly recommend this collection, and at $35 this is a fantastic deal. Read some of the reviews and then buy it!
  3. Is it just me, but I don't think Quadravox sounds very good. I've tried it on varying sources and the harmonizing algorithm they use does not impress me. It just strikes me as a quick way to create a harmony, but that quickness comes at the cost of quality. The best use I could find was to dial back the harmonies so they could be heard very (very!) softly. I appreciate that they offer it as a freebie, but I can't see a use for it.
  4. ...trying to recover from download/registration/installation process... must attach part A using supplied screws with clockwise effort... be sure to note Coriolis effect according to distance from equator... I-Lok must be registered with Look magazine subscription... do not pass go... collect free vst...
  5. I lost out on a deal at NI last year because I thought I had time left to make the purchase. And for exactly the reason you stated - the web clock was referencing my local time, not NI's time in Germany. When I went to make the purchase the page no longer existed, though the clock on my browser said I still had 2-3 more hours to make the purchase.
  6. For more fun, try adding this freebie to any of the above-mentioned programs (or just use it by itself): https://www.codefn42.com/transition/index.html It's a generative MIDI sequencer called Transition and you can make some crazy cool stuff with it.
  7. I'd rather have 100 GREAT loops for $10, than 11,600 mediocre loops for $99. I guess I need to see some reviews of Cohesion... (And does the name Cohesion strike anyone as a warning? It could end up being a very ironic product name...)
  8. You can get the Kontakt 6 player (and some other freebies) with Native Instruments Komplete Start: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/bundles/komplete-start/ Note that this includes the Kontakt player - for most instruments you will need the full version of Kontakt. I would suggest you wait for NI to have a sale on one of the Ultimate collections as that will include the full Kontakt 6 and lots of other stuff you will probably find useful.
  9. I'm with Fleer on this - the Blue 3 from GG-Audio is fantastic, the best I have found (and $99). I have not even listened to IK's B3, but I can't see how it can be better than Blue 3. But I'll keep an open mind and I look forward to the inevitable comparisons.
  10. So using the above payment schedule, if you had 1 million listens to your tune you would make $193. If every single person in the US (329 million) listened, you make about $63,000. A Gold record (single) is 1 million sales. A Platinum single is 2 million sales. I would think that someone who has a Gold or Platinum record would be making much more than the streaming payments. Of course, Gold and Platinum are for sales, but still it would seem that streaming should be more lucrative than it is.
  11. 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
  12. I like Tonebooster's Barricade 4. Transparent and inexpensive too. https://www.toneboosters.com/tb_barricade_v4.html
  13. 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
  14. "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
  15. Jamstix... and yes, there is a free, though basic, version available. https://www.rayzoon.com/#free_version
