  1. Not to gloat, but in the January sale I bought 3 Falcon expansions for 50% off and was able to use my loyalty voucher on top of that. It felt a little extravagant at the time, but looking back, it was the right move.
  2. Gosh! I am getting old. I need to keep up on my microgenres! From Wikipedia... Synthwave (also called outrun, retrowave, or futuresynth) is an electronic music microgenre that is based predominantly on the music associated with action, science-fiction, and horror film soundtracks of the 1980s. Other influences are drawn from the decade's art and video games. Synthwave musicians often espouse nostalgia for 1980s culture and attempt to capture the era's atmosphere and celebrate it. The genre developed in the mid-to late 2000s through French house producers, as well as younger artists who were inspired by the 2002 video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
  3. Doesn't seem to be working. The site takes my email and then says "Opssss! there is an error."
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you may have to be on the mailing list to get the freebie.
  5. Looks cool. I will check it out.
  6. Bonus points to whoever can tell which DAW that is on her laptop. Looks a bit like Studio One Version 2.0 to me.
  7. Move the decimal point two places to the right...

    AAS Annual Freebie

    Picked up Cardinals, a Simon Stockhausen pack for Chromaphone.
  9. What's up with WUP? Waves always wants me to upgrade my plugins. The cost of the upgrade is typically just a few dollars short of the new product (on sale) price, and yet the upgrade doesn't appear to offer any new features. I use Widows and not Apple so I can't see any reason to upgrade. Is WUP a scam?
  10. Yes, this is the first Toontrack holiday week where I haven’t purchased anything. The “Detroit Soul” Ezkeys midi was actually a good offering, but I already own it.

    If I ever have a project to score a haunted house or an insane asylum movie, I now know where to go to get my sounds...
  12. How many years do I have to wait before this becomes $29.95?
  13. My first thought as well, although I'm not completely sold on Fluidity. The presets sound a bit like Atmospherics overlaid with a bunch gurgling water sounds.
  14. I lost and couldn’t even see what I was trying to win. This is some serious marketing bs…
  15. Similar to the past few years, I would expect a few more Toontrack deals on Cyber Monday
  16. You need to scroll all the way to the bottom to find the heavily discounted stuff.
  17. I just discovered their Off-World string instrument. It is crazy unique and emotive. Not sure what I would use it for, but I want it!
  18. Wow! Softube’s stuff is expensive!
  19. Good catch! Actually my avatar is a snippet of a Rhodes Mark I Stage 73. You can tell it is a Stage and not a Suitcase by the silver knobs. Yes, I am a sucker for a good electromagnetic piano. I bought the Famous E when it first came out and I don't regret it a bit. It's an awesome Rhodes piano library. It would be a total Sophie's Choice if I had to choose between a Rhodes and a Wurlitzer. A Rhodes is probably more versatile but if I had a gun to my head I'd take the Wurli every time. Fortunately I don't have to choose.
  20. I agree that the e-instruments Wurli is the best of the three. The Sound Paint Wurli sounds absolutely dead. IMHO both the Soniccouture Wurli and the Acoustic Samples Wurli have a slight edge. I think the Acoustic Samples Wurli more precisely matches the signature tone of the Wurlitzer, while the Soniccouture is better at capturing the grit of the Wurlitzer. It is always fun to take a poll, and I enjoyed your rendition of Where it’s at.
  21. Their Putty Piano is interesting. Sounds a bit like small stones being dropped into a pond.
  22. I've got Moonkits and the library does sound really good. There is a ton of variety to be had in the various kits and presets. This library oozes uniqueness and character. There aren't nearly as many high hat and cymbal articulations as say a Superior Drummer kit, but many of the Moon kits come with a whopping 45 different brush articulations. Some of the more oddball Moon kits come with much fewer articulations. The one serious drawback to Moonkits is that there is no internal midi mapping tool. I can see this being a deal breaker for many. If you own a copy of full Kontakt, Soniccouture does share a link to a half-baked and somewhat painful midi mapping work around located here: https://www.soniccouture.com/blog/moonkits-how-to-re-map-for-e-drums/
  23. Finally, all courses at Groove 3 are 50% off! 1 year pass $99. https://www.groove3.com/big-groovember
  24. I like how the piano’s graphics pay homage to the Real Book and Straght Ahead Samples’ jazz roots.
