  1. Great find! Are you 100% sure that you can buy in at the $99 level with a discounted product?
  2. I don’t know. I use Studio One. If you want to remap keys on a Kontakt instrument scroll down on the link below to the section on “Moonkits” for a short tutorial on remapping midi keys in Kontakt (full version required) https://www.soniccouture.com/blog/page/3/
  3. Yes - I've tried the demo of Ample Bass upright. I thought it was excellent. I'm also a big of the EZBass midi editor and the midi packs. I ended getting Orange Tree's Pear Bass for $20 in the last sale. I'll probably use EZBass when setting up backing tracks for quick jam sessions and Pear Bass when producing more finished work. I may write a Kontakt script to translate the key switched between the two programs.
  4. I was thinking of getting the exact same two expansions - or perhaps LOFI DREAMS and HYPNOTIC DRIVE
  5. The EZKeys piano offerings are the real substandard product. Yes they sound like a piano, but there are so many far superior VST pianos out there. That said, EZKeys is a very useful musical composition tool. I guess the bottom line is that you have the best ear for and are most critical of the actual instrument that you play.
  6. Doing a bit of research, it appears that Toontrack released the EZKeys midi 6 pack shortly after they released their 12th EZKeys midi pack. If Toontrack follows this pattern, then an EZBass midi 6 pack can't be too far off.
  7. Falcon Expansions?! The only thing I can say about Falcon Expansions is that I seem to have an insatiable desire for more! I'm pretty sure that this will be the best deal of the year for these. There are some really good new releases.
  8. Finally a sale on EZBass midi! I’ve been waiting a long time for this. The big question now is should I wait even longer and hold out for the EZBass midi 6 pack that is inevitable going to be released. When it is finally released, Time+Space will likely sell the 6 pack for $99. Hmmm… delayed gratification to save $39 at a future unspecified date…
  9. A new upright bass expansion is coming in September! The three pack brings the price way down!
  10. A wise man once said... "The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the sweetness of low prices." Buyer's remorse is a terrible thing....
  11. No harm yet - I typically think and consider for a long time before pulling the trigger.
  12. Apologies - I haven't read all 80 pages of this thread to see if this question has already been answered. If I were to buy Amplitude 5 SE as my qualifying product, can I then use one of my freebees to purchase the upgrade to the full version of Amplitude 5?
  13. A little flavor of NY Studio Vol 2... A good SDX and the price is right with the sale. That said there is a lot of overlap with the Ludwig kits and snares included Legacy of Rock which is a better SDX...
  14. I bought my copy of Legacy of Rock during the last BestService.com savings event which had a $30 savings coupon for products costing at least $149. That combined with some saved up BestCoin brought the price down to a more reasonable $110. The twice a year BestService event is the only way I know of to get a discount on the newer SDX's.
  15. I'd wait and save up for Legacy of Rock. Both New York volume 2 and Legacy of Rock are heavily focused on classic Ludwig kits. Legacy of Rock sounds amazing and has a lot more options.
  16. It originally came out in 2009.
  17. Thanks! The free link worked for me. H-Comp is now registered to my Waves account.

  19. Friday the 13th sale! 30% off on UVI’s entire website! Could be a good time to pick up a few Falcon expansion packs, https://www.uvi.net/store
  20. I’ve heard very good things about the Modern U. The only upright piano I currently own is Native Instrument’s The Gentleman. I hardly ever use it. 90% of my time is spent with the Garritan Concert Grand CFX. That said, a good upright has a certain intimacy that a concert grand does not have. It seems like the Modern U would be a significant upgrade over The Gentleman. Any guesses if the Modern U will be cheaper on BF?
  21. Even better, all soundpacks are $19 at Applied Acoustics Systems site right now. There are also some good deals on their other products and bundles. https://www.applied-acoustics.com/products/

    I'm Baaaa-aaaack!

    Welcome back Larry! It has been a bit slow around here without you. I’m hoping to ramp my deals addiction back up to full speed.

  24. Legend has it that there was a mythic figure named Larry who at one time frequented these forums. The old tales describe an ancient shaman who was rumored to be a prodigious finder of almost supernatural deals. But that was such a long time ago. Nobody believes those old stories anymore...
