Re: Samplemodeling Solo & Ensemble Strings

Hi Giorgio,

That's great news, although I wouldn't have minded either way anyway.
I own all your products and think they're fantastic!
So I probably still would have purchased them, even if you had changed to another platform.

Re: Samplemodeling Solo & Ensemble Strings

When I initially read their comment, I had assumed that it meant that they had new techniques for preparing the samples prior to using them in Kontakt.

It wasn't until I saw your comment posted on another forum, that I realised that it could be taken either way.

Re: Samplemodeling Solo & Ensemble Strings

Hi Giorgio and Peter, I am curious, when you say "using a completely new, proprietary technology," does that mean that your new strings will not be Kontakt based, and using a new player instead? Or does it mean that the new technology will be used in the preparation/treatment of the samples, prior t...

Re: What about the SAMPLES for SM strings?

*fight* *fight* *fight* *fight* :mrgreen:

Nah, I'm joking.

It's good to have a little healthy competition though, and see you both spur each other on to make better instruments. :)

Re: Horn 3 Noise

I thought it was just me, but I don't hear anything either. But I didn't want to say anything in case someone blamed my ears for not hearing it. I listened numerous times in my studio on good high-end monitors. Maybe if it doesn't seem to be in the recording itself, then there is something about you...

You can get many more track counts with Kontakt than say with the PLAY engine, for example. The problem with SM ...

Re: The 64 bit version kill my CPU

it is more efficient and works better when you assign each instrument to its own window. By "Window" you mean "instance of the Kontakt VSTi" ? That could be the case if Kontakt only uses a single CPU per instance (would be silly but possible). Yes. It uses a little bit more RAM that way (although n...
