You are absolutely right, Eoin, and that is a very easy thing to implement, too26 February 2022 at 1:11 pm in reply to: Help me Piano Book. You’re my only hope (a little opportunity-not click bait!) #5219
Michael, we do not benefit from making these instruments, other than being happy to give back to the community, that is how I see it, anyway 🙂 Then, if you feel like you wanted to express your gratitude for the existence of these instruments by donating to the creator, I see nothing wrong with that, on the contrary, it can only make us feel happier, I suppose! 😊
In some of my contributions, I did not go full keyboard simply because I did not like how it sounded in the lowest and highest register. Also, when going really low,the sound would become too subby for how I intended the patch to be, and viceversa, if going to high, it would become too shrieking. For the NFO Strings Longs, I stack with the range of the instruments. But yes, for me normally is a decision I make, based upon whether I like the sound in those specific ranges
It would be nice f reviews could be sorted by most recent date, as it was before, rather than rating (I believe that is the new sorting order?). A “nice-to-have” would be the ability to pick the desired sorting.
Oh, and really glad to see that it is now possible to edit all aspects of one’s submission, cheers for that!
I recorded and turned them into the “Epic Fireworks” library, last year. However, this year I did not do that again…
You may want to try Keyscape, it comes with quite a few (tweakable) options23 May 2021 at 9:56 pm in reply to: Step by Step Process Creating a Kontakt (or other) Sound Library #3144
First, I would like to thank you, Phil, for thinking my Plastic Flap samples are “excellent”, you are very kind to say that, cheers!
To quickly explain the process around how I made it:
– I recorded the samples with my Shure SM58
– imported and chopped up the audio file in Pro Tools, selecting the bits that “worked”
– time-stretched said over 8/16 bars, using the different “in-the-box” time-stretching algorithms
– applied a few instances of Little Alter Boy, playing around with the settings until it sounded as I heard it in my head
– applied Valhalla Supermassive, loading different presets and tweaking them until I achieved the desired sounds
– bounced all the processed recordings
– imported the samples into Kontakt, and you can explore each NKI to see what is going on under the hood
Hope that was useful!
Last, I also was going to recommend Audio Artemis’ book.6 May 2021 at 11:37 pm in reply to: How long before a submission appears? Did I make a mistake? #3090
Just a big backlog 🙂
For those instruments that only come as a Kontakt instrument, yes, you do need Kontakt, and you need the full version of that. Those instruments do not work on the Player version of Kontakt, as Native Instruments require a fee to be able to make an instrument function in the Player version, and that fee is veeeery high.
More and more instruments are being converted to Decent Sampler, which is a totally free sampler software, so you could use that, instead11 April 2021 at 11:11 pm in reply to: I’ve Finally Done It: Da Fingaz Demos For ALL Pianobook Libraries! #3008
Here is to the next 500
And many thanks for sharing your process behind your demo track making!
It is just a bunch of few people who take care of pianobook, and often the instrument submission backlog can get large, therefore it is just a matter of time for new instruments to be officially released
I also hail from Manchester, have been here since 2015
He is incredibly brilliant, and very helpful in showcasing the various sounds
I also have been waiting for about 3 weeks for my latest submission to pop up. This is actually the second time this happens, the first time I went ahead and asked whether they had lost my submission, which fortunately was not the case
