  1. Anyone that is poo poo’ing EZBass is really just missing the big picture. It makes perfect sense that Toontrack is not sampling multiple notes per string and keeping the EBX sample sizes so much smaller than other commercial bass libraries on the market.  They need to leave room for their future release of “Superior Bass!”

    Sounds cool! But have you tried the Ample Bass upright yet?

    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.

    Which ones are you getting?   I'm getting LOFI DREAMS and INNER DIMENSIONS.  Jason has NKS templates for both of them.

    I was thinking of getting the exact same two expansions - or perhaps LOFI DREAMS and HYPNOTIC DRIVE

    I'd rather have Trilian or MODO Bass without those articulations

    But the ability to manipulate and edit MIDI data in the program is truly awesome. Not only with their bass MIDI patterns, but with any of the other ones you can get.

    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. 

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. 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...


  9. 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.

  11. 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?
