  1. Thanks Ryan - that is what I thought would be the case but didn't want to waste time
  2. On topic 😉 - Pete whilst you are here - do you know if any of the sound packs for Miroslav 2 are identical to those in Miroslav 2 CE which I already have installed - just to save me some time if possible 🙂
  3. Rob (Amicus) - your stuff is amazing! Going to be listening to a lot of these!
  4. Nice piece! Know what you mean about the sound though - yours sounds much better than the little I have composed but, as you say, it still has that unrealistic sound even though you have some great libraries
  5. I've just cloned my original HDD 1Tb data drive to a Samsung 1Tb external SSD connected by USB 3.1 (the slow version originally known as 3.0) and it appears to be working as we if not better. Just installing IK Total Max 2 onto the SSD so hoping it'll continue to perform ok. I would have installed an internal SSD but bottled it!
  6. It might be worth watching some of the Spitfire videos, especially the ones about the BBC SO VSTi - I've found those interesting
  7. This is a really interesting thread. I've only got Garritan PO and am just in the process of upgrading from Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE to the full 2 thanks to the current IK Total Max 2 deal but there are a lot of interesting tips and ideas here so thanks everyone
  8. Thanks for fixing the link Pete. Glad you and the team in Italy are ok
  9. Pete - thanks for the comments above but that link to the ST editor you posted just takes you to a blank page. Not downloaded that yet so not sure what it does - is it for editing samples in the soundpacks?
  10. Let me know how you get on if you beat me to it and I'll do likewise 🙂
  11. Thanks - I'll have a look at this once I've got all the new stuff installed - I could always just move the old ST2 files and see if that causes any issue before deleting them. I'd already imported my ST2 files first into ST3 and then into ST4 when I got the CS version so they seem to be working ok after a bit of a fiddle
  12. Yeah - I'm just over half way through downloading the ST3 sounds - lots more PITA to come! 😉 I bet they announce the download / install assistant just when I get finished! I seem to have several ST and Miroslav sound installations on my discs - one day I must work out which are the right ones! By the way - I have a lot of ST2 imported sounds too in ST3 and 4 - does the import process create a new copy of the sounds - that could be one of my issues
  13. The deed is done from JRR - £105! Thanks for the help guys - I was a bit nervous about it accepting the crossgrade but all seemed to go smoothly. Just had to spend a bit of time reorganising my drives to make room for it all on my new 1Tb SSD. No doubt there will be the usual IK fun and games getting it to work but I'm used to that now! See you in a week when it has all finished downloading!
  14. Ah thanks - I got 5 euro of jam points when I registered Vintage Tube Compressor that I got from Computer Music so presumably that triggers the cross grade
  15. Yes it is the VAT that is causing the issue here. On the crossgrade page it has this in red for me. 'To qualify for a Crossgrade to another product, you must be registered with a paid version of another IK Multimedia product over $/€ 99 or higher.'
  16. Ah just noticed the IK shop price is exclusive of VAT which takes it up to 215 euro - so I am not sure that is a crossgrade price after all as I don't have any products that cost me more than 99 euro
  17. Just wondering how the £ - euro or dollar conversion plus paypal fees will work out
  18. I've got ST3 LE with loads of imported ST2 instruments - are most of the ST3 instruments new? I've also got Miroslav 2CE so will have to see how much else I would get with the full Miroslav. Seems a good deal and I could use about £60 of Jam Points on it to get it for around £120. Not sure I can justify it though just had two holidays cancelled so could treat myself to this instead!
  19. This looks quite interesting https://www.loopcloud.com/cloud/blog/4588--StayInCreate-with-Free-Plugins-Tutorials-Sounds-
  20. That sounds very worrying. Definitely wish I hadn't defended them on their Facebook page now. I still haven't had a reply from them re my issue
  21. Thanks Brian - I'll investigate further - the odd thing is I don't recall having a problem with it (on the rare time I used it) before installing the new presets - even though the crackling also exists in the original patches
  22. Thanks Brian - in these instances I have nothing else running and no other VST's in the project - just basically trying different sounds in Union. I have 8gb of RAM - I've found reducing the number of voices in Union helps but doesn't always stop the crackling. I don't have similar problems in other VSTis and I have a lot!
  23. Ah so sounds like CPU is an issue. Looked ok in the CbB monitor but maybe not the best measure. . I've got a quad core i5 intel CPU. Is that likely to be not powerful enough?
  24. As I've mentioned elsewhere I'm having a problem with crackling in Union after installing their expansions (checked buffer size and CPU load and both seem ok) and sent a support ticket in to Soundspot about a week ago but have had no response so very disappointed in their support. For the price though (I think I paid about £10 for it a while ago) it's worth a try
  25. That's a serious bargain. I think I paid about £50 for it
