    Air Instrument Cloud

    I finally looked at this carefully and see that their $699.99 Perpetual License only includes products available at the time of purchase. Any new AIR products will not be included. So the $199.99 per year plan might be a better deal. https://www.airmusictech.com/cloud Or.... you might want to pick most of them up for $50-$75 or so. 😳

    APD Offer: 80% off Riffendium Bundle by Audiofier

    Weird thing I found with this was when I loaded it up Kontakt within Komplete Kontrol the light guides worked on my KK keyboard. As I changed patches the various colors lit up in the right places. I don't know why this is--it's not an NKS product--but it's extremely helpful. Maybe this is the case with other Kontakt instruments, but I've never noticed it before. And as I'm sure you all know, there are no snapshots for the REV DI instruments for any of these instruments. You have to make your own, if you want them.

    APD Offer: 80% off Riffendium Bundle by Audiofier

    As a guitar player with a lot of guitars and a TON of guitar virtual instruments--and a big Audiofier fan--I have been watching Riffendium closely since it came out. Still.... I wavered on buying it when the first versions and the ambient versions came out and I wavered on this deal. I'm SO glad I got this. It's amazing. If they come out with an acoustic version, I am sure I will get that. But I bet Audiofier knows that. 😃 Make sure you read the manual and learn how to install all the snapshots, because they really make it. The only negative for me is that I will be messing with this instead of working on my new music project. 😟

    8DIO Vocal Week

    I passed on the Soundiron deal and bought 8Dio's New Studio Sopranos for $78. Highly recommended. If you like the way this sounds.... this is exactly what all the legatos sound like. And there's a lot more to this library, including poly legato on phrases.

    @kitekrazy Do you know what directory the Vita files are? I'd like to delete them. It seems like Vita only works in Acid and the sounds aren't as good as the ones I have in Kontakt.

    Steinberg Holiday Virtual Instrument Sale

    This is a really good description of the many features of HALion. In terms of creating your own instrument, it has a set of pre-made knobs and sliders that can be dragged into an interface. You can easily assign them functions. You can use the sounds that come with HALion or drag in your own samples--and they even have a system for making this easy, with auto-naming, etc. So if you have some simple thing that you want to make an instrument out of--HALion 6 should work fo you. And there is a free player, so you could give it to a friend or maybe even sell it. For me, the best part of HALion is the FlexPhrasers. They exist to a lesser extent in SE. Steinberg describes them as an arpeggio and phrase player, but they are much more than that. They respond in a much more interesting way than any other arpeggiator I've had. One way to think of them is that they are like EZKeys. You have a bunch of keyboard patterns that you can use on any keyboard sound--or anything really. The difference is that they also have FlexPhrasers for Guitar, Bass, Keys, Drums, Synths, etc. So you can layer up a single preset with different FlexPhrasers. Once that's done you can play any chord, or in some cases, single notes, and it will play auto-arrangements. The only thing about them is that the technology comes from the Motif and the Montage Keyboards--they were ported over, but not created for DAWs. I have had some issues trying to get the FlexPhrasers to line up. It's almost as if they are loops that come with no named BPM. But they are very fun to play with. You can save 8 Flexphrasers in a patch and switch between them with key switches. Some of the FlexPhrasers come with key switches for different articulations built in. I totally think this is worth more than $125. My only concern is that if they are selling it that cheap, they may be dumping it, not be working that hard on HALion 7. For example, I doubt we will see more FlexPhrasers. But they are trying to get other companies to make HALion instruments, and that's a good thing. As an instrument, it is more like Falcon than it is like Kontakt, as you can layer many different kinds of synth sounds. Kontakt now has Wavetable, but HALion also has Granular, Virtual Analog, tone wheel organ, etc... all of which can be made into layered patches, along with the large included library of sampled sounds.

    Thanks. Downloading now. I had no issues installing AP8 or SFP12. Very easy install and validation. I then put in MP3 in my music computer and regular computer. No problem registering both. @kitekrazy Do you know where the loops are installed?

    I just installed Acid Pro 8. Anybody know where I can find the 9 GB of Acid Loops?

    Thanks, Matthew.

    Zero-G World Pack - $35

    Yeah, I'm definitely going to get Lap Steel. One final question about the World Pack. I don't know why, but the Magix deal may be increasing my interest in Acidized loops. Is it your impression that ALL of these loops are Acidized? It doesn't say so in the separate libraries. And I don't know how you'd be able to check that. But if there's anything you can share, I'd like to hear it. Thanks!

    What is wrong with Acid Pro 8? I have Acid Pro 7, and it seems like a good deal to upgrade and get 64 bit for $25. Not to mention SF Pro 12.

    Air Instrument Cloud

    https://www.airmusictech.com/cloud? They either give these instruments away, sell them for peanuts, or sell all of them for $50. And then they think people will pay up to $19.99 a month for the same stuff? Who is the market for this?
