About Me

  1. I'm wondering if anyone has come up against "ERROR #1" trying to load Spitfire LABS into cakewalk. I've tried all the things I've found online about it but I haven't found a solution. I included a screenshot of the error. Has anyone found a solution? I'm using Windows 10.
  2. I enjoyed my short time away and am back, ready to go on more adventures with all of you. Join me at 3:30 PM EST as I feature a few titles from Spitfire Audio (@Spitfire Team) during the last moments of this year's Spring Sale. I was very interested to experience Albion V Tundra as well as featuring Olafur Arnalds Composer Toolkit. Of course, there might be a few surprises along the way and I look forward to answering your questions during the live chat. I look forward to seeing you there.
  3. Recently while learning more about Unify and how I might help others understand it more, I started creating "Unified" patch libraries. I started with the Spitfire Originals, as they are not that complicated but having a Unified version makes things so much easier to work with inside of Unify. I am calling this an "Open Beta" where you can download and install the patch libraries to help make sure they are working, and also open it up for you to submit your own user patches that you might come up with. Any user patch to be considered for inclusion in any updated library must use the UNIFY STANDARD LIBRARY, this is to ensure the most compatibility. You can get a look and download what I have so far from this thread on the Plugin Guru site. I hope you find this useful and stay tuned for much more ahead. https://forums.pluginguru.com/postid/12667/ Joyfully! Simeon
  4. Abbey Road ONE is currently 30% off for a limited time. I have found it very useful in putting arrangements together very quickly and they sound amazing. https://www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/abbey-road-one-orchestral-foundations/ In other news, I have completed UNIFYING Abbey Road ONE and all of the current Abbey Road ONE Film Scoring Selections. You can download the Unified Patch libraries on the Plugin Guru Forum here: https://bit.ly/AbbeyRoadONE_Unified
  5. You might need to bundle up for this one. We just went through some crazy winter weather and waking up to possible single digits. I will be taking a look at Appassionata, Tetrality, LABS Glass Piano, and possibly some fun with UNIFY. I am also going to be doing a special livestream sneak peek of a new arrangement I am releasing that was inspired by Cinematic Frozen Strings, I look forward to seeing you at 11:00 am EST. Bring some hot chocolate 🤓
  6. So, this is a first for Spitfire’s Aperture offerings. With the introduction of Aperture 3 “The Stack”, while it will be free for those hitting the purchase threshold, it will be available to everyone on December 1st and onwards for $249. More info here: https://praisetracks.com/?p=2799
  7. What a fun experience to walk through this library, so much to see and experience. You can check out the replay below. Albion NEO is 40% off until August 31st. https://www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/albion-neo/
  8. Spitfire Audio has been such a great supporter of the channel and has sent me a few libraries to feature during their Summer Sale. Today I am going to be taking a look at STRATUS, which is not your conventional virtual piano library. It took a little while to unpack this library but it has so much potential that needs longer exploration to discover the really interesting aspects of it, Make sure you check out things after the halfway point where I work with the Piano Overlay, and the WARPS 😎 STRATUS is currently on sale for $179 (REG> $299)
  9. This is another classic Abbey Road upright. Looking forward to playing it. Here is a lot more info here: https://wp.me/p6Mqqs-DP https://wp.me/p6Mqqs-DP
  10. As usual I am turning off the GPS and taking a journey into the latest soundworld from Spitfire Audio, ALBION SOLSTICE.
  11. I am still recovering from a wonderful birthday this past weekend and wanted to try and catch up on the latest happenings. The replay is live and turned out to be the longest livestream yet! So many amazing discoveries. Thanks for all of the kind support, I really appreciate it.
  12. So I remember when Cinesamples had a Mrs. Mills Piano for Kontakt but a while back their agreement with Abbey Road ended, so they had to discontinue that library. Today, Spitfire Audio has released their own Mrs. Mills Pianos as one of their $29 Orig!nals series. I cant wait to try it out and of course I will try and do a live first look and playthrough as soon As I can. Until then you can read all about it here on my site: https://wp.me/p6Mqqs-As Here is the trailer:
  13. Hello everyone, I have a problem with Spitfire Audio, I downloaded LABS (Soft Piano, Strings and Tape Orchestra) and BBC Sympony Orchestra, the files are correctly addressed (program files in users / public / public documents and dlls in the Vst plugins and they appear in the Plug in manager (see photo 1) but not in the "insert, virtual Synth" (see photo 2) all Kontact programs and other synths work perfectly I have tried everything and I can't solve the problem, thank you very much riccardo from Pinerolo Italy
  14. Well, I am simply blown away by this library so far, it is a lot of fun. So tonight after downloading and getting the plumbers out of the house I thought; why not put a huge stack together in Unify and see what I come up with. Well here you go, all playing live and just following where the sounds were taking me. Again this was so much fun and huge thanks to @Spitfire Team for starting us on this new and exciting journey. Buckle Up and Enjoy!
  15. It was a pretty wild ride walking through this library, but what a ride. This library has a real richness about it, that I really enjoyed experiencing. Enjoy the replay.
  16. Abbey Road One: Orchestral Foundations The Iconic Sound of Cinema Pre-Order $349 Available Thursday November 5, 2020 Enter the room most composers can only dream of: Studio One at Abbey Road. Unparalleled and exclusive access to the world’s most celebrated recording location for movie music — from Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, to Harry Potter and Avengers: Endgame — it doesn’t get more iconic. In our first collaboration with Abbey Road Studios, we recorded a complete 90–piece symphonic orchestra the same way your favourite composer would: unmistakable acoustics, exceptional players, award-winning sound engineers and priceless microphones. Strings, brass and woodwinds are grouped into ensembles for instant playability, completed by an exciting cinematic percussion section, all housed in our award-winning dedicated plug-in. HERE
  17. This is an unusual Krakauer Brother's Spinet piano that had a crack in the bridge so the piano tuner recommended it be chopped up for firewood! I am so glad that they chose to keep it intact. Here is the livestream replay of a really fun and interesting journey exploring the Firewood Piano. Here is an interesting article on my website that shares some more backstory and recording info: https://wp.me/p6Mqqs-ue
  18. Well it was indeed a crazy day. I had a great time waling through all of these today. I hope you enjoy catching the replay when you can. Thanks again for the tremendous support and encouragement. Spitfire Audio Originals Epic Brass + Woodwinds, along with Originals Cinematic Percussion. The next stream was featuring Whole Sounds Baldwin 1954 Parlor Grand and taking a sneak peek at his upcoming Baldwin 1988 Connelly Chapel Grand It was a great privilege to have Dan McKinney join me to share some of his thoughts about his piano libraries, as well as give us some information regarding his current Kickstarter Project which is to sample a Baldwin SD10 9' Concert Grand.
  19. Originals Epic Strings is a very different experience from Intimate Strings. In this video I will also do some comparison with Intimate Strings, BBCSO, and ALBION ONE, so it should be very "Epic"!

  21. Well this afternoon I had a package in the mail and lo and behold! I was very impressed by the package and even a little personalized shall I say “birth certificate”. The SSD is enclosed in a USB C enclosure and they supply a USB C to regular cable. I did have a little hiccup installing as I had installed the plugin from the download earlier but there was a very nice video “Watch Me First” that helped me get back on track. One word: OVERWHELMED Looking at my current system I was not prepared for the shear magnitude of what I was getting into. By default all the articulations are loaded for a particular instrument and that is something I can get a better handle on by editing and only making active the ones I think I will actually use. Also all of the mic signals can be once again, OVERWHELMING as most of us will never use the Dolby Atmos signals and to get really crazy with opening all of the spills separately would be an adventure indeed. The first thing I loaded was the strings and to be totally real, I cried as I played the Con Sordino Violins, they are just beautiful. I then loaded a couple of other instances (Violas, Celli, and Bass) and cried again when I was looking at using over 20gb (out of 32gb installed) of system memory. I think once again having so many articulations loaded at a time. There seems to be something strange going on with memory management that at the moment is difficult to put a finger on. Along with @Matthew Sorrels, watching through some of the Daniel James video marathon brought some honest if not very salty reality to this library. We’re it not for my dear friend who graciously gifted this to me; looking at it now from this standpoint I am not sure if BBCSO would have been something I would have really jumped on myself if I had the budget to do so. Also getting used to having to install multiple instances of the BBCSO plugin is something I will have to get used to and once again agree wholeheartedly with the comments about a lack of feedback on loading instruments and the current mechanics of how things are handled from a memory or ssd streaming perspective. My journey is just beginning and hopefully things will improve over time as more real in the field feedback gets back to Spitfire. The community of users they desire to build around this library will require them to take seriously all of the feedback as some have mentioned and address the really thorny issues raised or it will be over before it has a real chance of taking off. The other mindset is the “Apple-centricity” (did I just make up a new word?), Many users are not on Mac OS or that use Logic or even Cubase (I use a MacBook Pro on the road to play virtual instruments live). Again, it is taking the feedback from users and creating an environment where everyone will reap the harvest of collective knowledge on all platforms which will ultimately benefit everyone. All I know is I feel on the edge of a new frontier as I start putting together a strategy for building a reasonable new system that can be up to the challenge of carrying me into some amazing opportunities. OK, rant over 🤓 You can be sure I will keep you posted and please keep me in mind if there are discoveries or minefields you find along the way! Always Joyfully!
  22. Review: Spitfire Audio SYMPHONIC ORGAN http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/reviewdetails.asp?ProdReviewID=40
  23. Spitfire Audio enters exploratory sonic universe of KEPLER ORCHESTRA orchestral tools presented in interactive Systems Grid Spitfire Audio is proud to announce availability of KEPLER ORCHESTRA — originally putting German astronomer Johannes Kepler’s discovery of the three laws governing orbital motion into musical motion as an aptly-named odyssey of orchestral sounds, articulations, and playing styles recorded in the crisp, vibrant acoustic of London’s legendary AIR Studios’ Studio 1 and presented in the sound-specialising British music technology company’s interactive Systems Grid articulation mapping tool based on its innovative Evo Grid technology to allow anyone to easily write and create complex polyrhythms a la late-20th Century composers like John Adams, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley, realising ultra-realistic, dynamic polyrhythmic scores with ultimate control while the orchestral tools themselves take care of the hard work. The 18,300 samples-strong KEPLER ORCHESTRA can be purchased and digitally downloaded (37.4 GB) for a time-limited introductory promo price of £199.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$229.00 USD/€229.00 EUR (inc. VAT) until June 6, 2019 — rising thereafter to an RRP of £249.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$299.00 USD/€299.00 EUR (inc. VAT) KEPLER ORCHESTRA needs Native Instruments’ KONTAKT PLAYER (5.6.8 or higher) — a free version of the KONTAKT sample playback engine (included in the purchase) — to run as a fully NKS (NATIVE KONTROL STANDARD®) supporting plug-in instrument for Mac (OS X 10.10 or later) or Windows (7, 8, or 10 — latest Service Pack, 32/64-bit), while Spitfire Audio’s free Download Manager application allows anyone to buy now and download anytime. https://www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/kepler-orchestra/
