    U-He Repro-5 - "Two Repros without reproach!"

    04/09/18

    Mastering a plugin requires time, and the time we can dedicate to music is rare enough (and the plug-ins that come with our DAWs numerous enough) to make the purchase of a plug-in a much thought out act – at least, that’s my approach of things, and p...

    Focusrite Scarlett 8i6 - "Great value for money"

    01/13/18

    Good sounding preamps, nice touch solid knobs, advanced, stable software, independent voltage supply, In general very nice interface I've been very happy with it for years - my recommendation! cons: it has a common issue with power supplier sock...

    Native Instruments Una Corda - "A nice virtual instrument, but not a must have"

    12/25/17

    I really love Native’s products, but this time I’m not entirely satisfied. My computer is an i7 6700k 16gb RAM and windows 10 (64bit, of course). I make music such as ambiance, OST… The demo is very well done and commercially efficient. As us...

    Back in Time Records Ethnotronics Pro II VST - "-"

    12/24/17

    -What configuration, software and musical style or context do you use with this virtual instrument? Is its anti-piracy protection excessive or burdening? Is it CPU intensive? Is it easy to use? Are its parameters straightforward? Is its MIDI program...

  • Sample Logic CG Infinity

    Sample Logic CG Infinity - "The melodic sound and ambiance that I love for sound for picture!!!" has images

    12/02/17

    I use it with Windows 10 and Cubase 8.5 on an i7 6700k through Kontakt 5.5 with 16 GB of RAM – and sometimes it’s not even enough, which is a real pity. It also can be used with the Kontakt Player. It can work in the following modes/formats: stan...

  • PropellerHead Reason 10

    PropellerHead Reason 10 - "A new version… with nothing new ?!!!"

    11/10/17

    I’ve tried to use this piece of software with a Surface Pro 4, core i7 with 16 GB of RAM. I say “I’ve tried” as versions 9 and 9.5 have never worked correctly : after 15 minutes, Reason’s memory starts leaking. All for a bad start, with an install...

  • Avid Sibelius 8

    Avid Sibelius 8 - "Still a big mess but now you pay more for it"

    11/09/17

    Decade-old bugs not patched, same chaotic layout, still hundreds of plugins to sift through to find a workaround for a bug or a feature that should already be in the core program, the transport is still so rudimentary that it's practically useless, s...

    Native Instruments Komplete 11 Ultimate - "Totally worth it..." has images

    10/31/17

    I bought it as an upgrade+promotion of my 10 edition. I use a Win10 PC with i7, 64gb ram, 2xssd disks, audient i22 sound card AND Komplete Keyboard s61, 1st edition. I use it in combination with the S61, through Cubase 9 only for "home studio purpos...

    Phonic FireFly 808 - "Problematic device!"

    10/14/17

    I bought two Phonic Firefly 808's, with the idea to daisy chain them to obtain 16 inputs/outputs. The installation of the drivers was a real pain in the neck! I got messages as "The device doesn't start", "No device found" etc. After a full day of ...

    Kawai VPC 1 - "VPC1 is an excellent choice for MIDI only Piano simulation, not general midi keyboard use "

    10/04/17

    I use the VPC1 exclusively with Pianoteq, running on an ordinary laptop, with an M-Audio interface and 2 KRK Rokit 6" powered speakers. I use USB only, no power to the keyboard, although it does come with an external power supply. This keyboard h...
