  1. Anybody who is curious about ujam products can download a free demo of any of these. These are fully functional demos--there's no difference between them and the purchased product except for that they only last 30 days. I've always found that to be a very fair amount of time to evaluate their products. For example, I have a template of all the Beatmakers I own, something that only takes minutes to set up. So when they released Berzerk, I decided I didn't really need it.. Based on their promo video, this seems to be different from all the others, which were clearly in a genre. This is a hybrid set that can do all kinds of things. But I'll decide if it's something I want. But I'm not going to buy it now. The ujam store is always 50% off on BF, and for those that don't have their products yet, there are deals on bundles. But much more importantly, you can pretty much count on this being available for $29 or less someday. It's just a question of how long it takes. I seem to remember one of the ujam drumsets turning up as a Plugin Boutique freebie once.
  2. And here they are at Coney Island! I'm sure they cooked up some great software ideas on the Wonder Wheel!
  3. One theory I have heard is that the camera went off when a random dude was walking by, and they just figured, "what the hell, it looks like we have a bigger staff" and they left him in the photo. Others have mused that he was a real XLN staffer distracted by whatever the guy third from the right was saying. We'll never know because, as far as I know, nobody ever comes to the office at XLN. You have to check out the random theme parks they visit, and that's a hassle. The guy in the orange on the left with his head floating away...I would blame him too. For everything. Including Larry being away from this forum for so long.
  4. It was the first time I wrote something where the beat came first. The great thing about the XO and the paks is you can put your own sounds into them. It's fun if you want to use foley for your beats.
  5. I really like Oscillations and Pastel Punch, but that's personal. Have you listened to the demos? Oscillations is the main driver of this video, although I used a lot of other tools for the drums, including Butch Vig
  6. Note that Lunacy Audio now has 3 paid CUBE expansion packs: Air (Hybrid Winds), Threads (Imaginative Strings) and Rumble (Seismic Bass & Percussion). Is a Brass expansion coming? Like AudioModern, they regularly come out with free CUBE expansion packs. There are now five--Breeze, Glo, Graphite, Particles, and Remnants. However, Breeze needs Air and Remnants needs Threads. The difference between these expansions and the paid ones is that they don't add new samples. They are like all the expansions Output charges for. If you don't want to spend $99 on CUBE during this sale, they have an LE version called CUBE Mini for $39 (normally $59) This loads all the expansions and you can upgrade. https://lunacy.audio/products/cube/ I've made no secret that I like this customer-friendly business model that Lunacy Audio and Audiomodern have. To me, CUBE has the most unique user interfaces of synth/samplers in a long time. I think it's not just unique but it's also intuitive to use and sounds great. It comes with over 500 presets before you even get to the growing collection of freebies and paid ones. I recommended it to @simeon and he made this:
  7. I found this picture of the XLN Audio team hard at work creating new Adpaks, Midi PAKS and XO expansions.
  8. Hey! This is the deal forum! Obviously if you KNOW you will never use it... go for it! 😀
  9. Pretty great deal. https://audioplugin.deals/emisynth-pripyat-pianos-bundle-by-strix-instruments/?utm_source=APD+Subscribers&utm_campaign=8f08d75841-Deal_Launch_Strix_Bundle&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_766211a9e5-8f08d75841-38746569&ct=t(Deal_Launch_Strix_Bundle)&goal=0_766211a9e5-8f08d75841-38746569&mc_cid=8f08d75841&mc_eid=dfa1f7f44a
  10. The staff of XLN Audio. What do these 17 people do every day? I think the jeans-wearing guy in the middle of the front row making the peace sign with both hands looks like Max Martin.
  11. Yes, it's not abandonware. They are committed to keeping it working.
  12. 50% off https://www.xlnaudio.com/products/xo/xopak?utm_campaign=2022_q4_xo_campaign&utm_source=xln&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_content=button_xopaks Still only four paks. How long will it take them to add another one? This company... 😕 I believe the last ADpak, Boutique Mallets, came out in 2016. Sales all the time. There are so many people whohad everything years ago . They would buy more if they sold more. I truly don't understand this company. Particularly when you look at Toontrack, which constantly releasing new stuff. The legendary @Bapu buys practically all of it. Don't even get me started on Playbeat, which releases new expansions all the time--most of them free. Expansions demonstrate what a drum machine can do. Anybody can hear the new stuff in a YouTube video. The more of the expansions out there, the more you can see what a drum machine is capable of, and the more appealing it is to buy it.
