"Consoling and thank you for the assurances. I've had a USB stick go defunct and got obsessive about back-ups. I do 2 of the DAW and Vienna samples. As it is, I can do a software license with EW but have no free slots for a drive to hold the samples,…"

"Yes, a usb stick with a two year warranty. $26.If you loose the stick after that, I assume you can buy another. Same in the case of a hardware crash or theft. I suppose there are a few advantages, but not many.

"Dane, I believe the sample library companies biggest customers are Television/movie/video game/advertisement composers. I could be wrong, but I don't think I am. For every successful movie composer there are likely 1000 or more wanna be's. I don't…"

"Just my opinion, but a usb key is about the silliest thing I've heard of. Not that I'm advocating their use, but there are cracks out there. I hope the libraries that use these keys are well worth the hassle of yet another thing sticking out of your…"

"I ended up buying the Spitfire Albion One library. Time will tell if I will use it. I hear good reviews on it as the sort of "staple" library from Spitfire. We'll see.

  • Hi Doug

    Thanks for your comment.
    Yes, the solo instruments need to be more in front in the mix, you are right. maybe change some instruments, like bassoon/clarinet. And yes "Duduk" turned out to be one of my favorite.
    Well back to work :0)

    Cheers Arthur
  • Hey Doug, nice to meet you.
  • Thank you for your friendship and comment, it is nice to meet people with similar musical background. I hear the influence of progressive music!
  • Thank you very much! I try my best to make my music as unique as possible.

    I listened to your song Solstice, and I must say, that song was stunningly warm and very smooth.
  • Hi Doug, thanks so much for your kind words, I´m happy you enjoyed them.
    I have listened to your music, I loved Solstice, it´s very solidly structured and articulated, and yet you can feel it flow...! Beautiful work!
    Hope you are fine, take care, thanks for sharing your music and thoughts!

  • Doug Doug Doug, thanks a million for the friend invite and the kind words....Solstice is absolutely brilliant! I had to listen to it 3 times...fantastic!
  • Hi Doug

    Thanks for your reply & link, I must admit that my Strat is the best guitar for me, I use the Line 6 700 to add various guitars when recording plus I also own the Line 6 acoustic & Line 6 pedal board which has loads of effects & more than I would ever need to use, I have never played a Washburn & must try one out the next time I visit my local music store, your sample collection of vintage organs sounds interesting, I once had a VOX back in the 70's.

    Regards

    Paul
  • Hi Doug

    Thanks for welcoming me, I like your music & studio set up, I play a Strat & also a
    Line 6 700

  • Glad to be your fiend Doug. I guess your music is inspired by the visual images and vice versa... Interesting fusion!
