No issues. At one point Studio Drummer went up high with CPU activity, then immediately normalized. I'll keep an eye out for it though. Thanks!

Too much to report about K9 but coming from Komplete 5 (or 6, I forget), it was a nice upgrade. $79 worth of "somebody pinch me, I must be in heaven". The only downside was the install took forever. My preparing drives/songs took long as well.

I like piecing together my own plugs and finding deals like you guys in order to set up exactly what I want. Best way to go, really. In this case it was attractive to get this bundle upgrade as there are some niceties that I would of had to pay for or think what I had was good enough. Example, some real nice electric pianos, and those ol Fender Rhodes, and Wurlitzers sound amazing. Another nice surprise was the organs with Leslie cabinets. I'm very particular about true Hammond and Leslie sound, authenticity, and actual control, and I'd give this a 9 out of 10. Love the transient shaper, and Studio Drummer should prove useful. Always been a fan of Massive, Absynth and FM8, and they remain the same. The new Battery 4...............Big improvement in every way.
Komplete, never thought I'd need more pianos, but never say never. Upright Piano, Berlin, New York, and Vienna Concert Grands.They are very good. Lot's more too. Again, quite an upgrade.

Anyway, happy hunting. I see some of you all are beaming with a new glow from recent purchases as well.

Oh yeah!!!! Trouble is I went overboard on my budget

  • Vitamin

  • MaxxBass

  • Reel ADT

  • Aphex Vintage Aural Exciter

  • Melda's AutoDynamicEQ



  • Great bargains to be had, but as always they are at the wrong time I was tempted to get the Waves Analogue synth (Elements) which really sounded good on demo, but managed to resist, simple fact of food or toys. Normally I would have gone for toys, but some very strange reason I saw sense for once, very odd

    OK what's next I wonder? (whispered under breath) maybe S1 3

    code worked three times. all legit... serials sent. waves approved apparently it was the same code for all of us... and we were only restricted to one application of code per order. they were three separate orders... cheers

    I've had my eye on Elements too. Just can't bight on the hook yet. Having Reason does give me a lot of synthesis choice. Thor is to coin an old phrase....stupid (as in good) Plus the NI synths

    I'm starting to see that.
    Those Germans do everything well. (except smooth lyrical phasing when singing) Great at soccer too!

    Congrats Klypeman! NI get really good endorsements from people like Andy Scheps.
    Yes, I'm looking forward to trying Monark out. Man, with K5, I never even opened Reaktor. Now, its an animal.

    As to finding good plugin deals, JB is my sensei

    @Lokeyfly

    II think I felt the same as you about Elements as I have Reason seemed like a waste, although convenient, so I passed on it.
