    Since this thread leans toward the orchestral, my favorite free orchestral instruments are the Orchestools ROMplers, which they also offer in SampleTank 4 format.

    I have been wondering whether to try those. Assumed that they may not offer much different / better than what I have with Miroslav & Garritan PO. Like BBCSO Discover though they would seem to be a no brainer for anyone without a paid for library.

    Some of these have been mentioned but here goes!

    Spitfire LABS series
    Project Sam Free Orchestra - awesome when layered up
    Sampletank 4 CS - once you get past the installation & authorisation!
    Syntronik 2 CS - ditto!
    Orchestral Tools Sine Free Instruments - ever expanding. Quirky front end but very nice sounds
    Soundpaint Angels - just got this one - some interesting sounds - not sure how useable yet!
    Evolution Series Clara Duduk  - a cross between a clarinet and my favourite instrument the duduk (Kontakt Player)
    Keepforest Ferrum Trailer Percussion Free Edition (Kontakt Player)
    Evolution Devastator Warzone (Kontakt Player)

     

    Fixed! 😉

     There's a reason I love this forum and spend the majority of my time on forums here, the people. This has always been the friendliest, most helpful DAW/music making forum I know of.

    Spot on - I have had so much help over the years and there are many great people here. I tend to be at the free budget end of the market but mainly because I can only devote a small amount of time to music making so significant investment would be out of scale with my efforts. There is just so much great free / low cost stuff around that combined with my major purchases of ST TS Max 2, Garritan Personal Orchestra and Reason 10 I have far more than I need (though I still have free GAS!)

  5. It appears that if you copy Syntronik 2 files to a subfolder of your ST3 folder as I did you have to specifically identify that sub folder in your sounds path - neither Syntronik 2 nor ST4 picked it up when I just rescanned the ST3 folder. I've rescanned Syntronik 2 and now that works ok - just waiting for ST4 to complete the rescan......

    Well I took a deep breath and installed Syntronik 2 CS today.

    Good news, it found all of my Syntronik 1 presets, and everything was authorized! 👍

    Bad news, is that it installed the new 3GB sound library on my boot drive in a folder in "C:\Users\Public\Documents\IK Multimedia\Syntronik 2". Had to move it manually to my content drive, and set the new path in Syntronik 2 options. Simple fix.

    Good news! The presets and samples load very quickly now, compared to Syntronik 1. Even the Syntronik 1 instruments. Whooo-Hooo! 👍

    Bad news, I had to adjust the new Syntronik 2 content path in SampleTank 4, and remove the reference to "C:\Users\Public\Documents\IK Multimedia\Syntronik 2". Simple fix.

    Good news, all is working very well now, and with no issues! :)

    Ah good point about removing ST4 reference to the C drive folder if moving samples - I'd just moved the Syntronik 2 sounds over to my data drive and rescanned Syntronik 2 but forgot to do it on ST4 - thanks!

  7. Thanks for the quick response Pete - I'd scrolled back to your earlier reply on this and was in the process of doing the restore my purchases operation when you replied. Once I'd navigated to the newest version of Custom Shop this seemed to work 🙂 Seems a very strange glitch though! 


  8. Having installed Syntronik 2 it seems to have wiped out my authorisations for all my ST3 and 4 instruments - did anyone find the best way to solve this? It seems unbelievable that installing a totally separate programme / VST would do this - a serious problem at IK's end! @Peter - IK Multimedia do you have latest advice on this please?


  9. Bear in mind that unless you are on a subscription do not update to latest version of Loopcloud as it does not scan your personal sample folders (unless things have changed recently?). Fortunately I found this out before updating!
