    Native Instruments Kontakt 4 - "Fantastic Program"

    01/05/15

    Kontakt is my one and only sample player. It's a strong and versatile program and after using it for about 7-8 years I'm still learning more and more about how powerful this thing is. I generally use Kontakt as a plug-in and outside of some occasi…

    E-MU Proteus VX - "This thing made pop pop in the 90's.. Now it's FREE!"

    10/17/14

    This is definitely a piece of software that you have to read the manual to. It's a little clunky and most certainly isn't intuitive, demanding that you do your homework. Once you do though, there's little difficulty. SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE The sof…

  • IK Multimedia SampleTank XL 2.5

    IK Multimedia SampleTank XL 2.5 - "Overdue for a major upgrade"

    01/22/13

    Ik Multimedia software is easy to install, and authorization can be done from the Ik Multimedia webpage. The sample tank library is rather large and is installed from DVDs. It takes a while to install. One thing that really bothers me about the s…

    Native Instruments Kontakt 5 - "Innovative Sampler"

    12/28/12

    Kontakt is a software application and plug-in that can be used as a stand-alone software instrument, or as a plug-in inside a DAW. It is primarily a 'sample playback' engine and comes with a decent library. Kontakt can be expanded by purchasing more…

  • IK Multimedia Sonik Synth 2

    IK Multimedia Sonik Synth 2 - "Over 5,000 sounds"

    09/07/12

    Sonik Synth 2 is a pretty good workstation with a lot of different tools for using and designing your own sounds. The program is far more in depth than what I thought it was going to be back when I purchased it. It comes with over 5 thousand sounds. …

    VSL Vienna Instruments is compatible with mac and with pc. I didn’t know this at first, I bought it for my macbook and then after reading the manual that came with and and saw where it was compatible with both, so that was a big plus because now I ca…

    IK Multimedia SampleTank XL 2.5 - H2m's review

    05/12/12

    The installation of IK products was never very easy before they created the '"authorization manager." Otherwise, no incompatibilities. SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE Today, W7 64 on an I7 processor. Before, XP 32 on a dual-core machine. It has worked perf…

  • Native Instruments Kontakt 5

    Native Instruments Kontakt 5 - "A solid sampling/instrument tool perfect for the performing musician"

    01/17/12

    I run this on a Macbook Pro i7 with and RME Fireface 800 and everything runs great. So far there has only been one issue but it was solved with the latest update. For some reason, my instruments would sound muted like someone had placed foam over m…

    VSL (Vienna Symphonic Library) Vienna Instruments - "good vst"

    11/01/11

    I purchased the Vienna Special Edition, and everything sounds great! These samples are the industry standard for good reason. Unfortunately, if you really want a variety of articulations (such as ponticello tremolo), you'll need to buy the extended l…
