"UPDATE- I received the update on the 18th for BBCSO CORE and have been very happy with it. As it tuned out those tinny sounds carried across all my libraries and was a sound adjustment.
 For anyone considering the Spitfire series ( Discovery, CORE,…"

"Dane,
 Not certain how moving a library to a new computer would work. I have moved libraries across SSD drives. 
I was able to download the update for CORE. Prior to the update I moved my library across drives. The plugin did not like it. I need to…"

"Never mind, shortly after I posted I figured it out. Here's how I got the keyswitching working:
1. Unlock the little padlock figure on the right of the interface.
2. Change the keyswitch keys from C2 through D#2, to C0 through D#0.
This does it on…"

"Tim, I have the Discover version. I can't get the key-switching to work. I have looked at the manual but to no avail. My midi keyboard is a small one, just 49 keys, so that could be a factor. I see how you scroll the keyboard down on the interface,…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Timothy Smith's discussion BBC Symphony Orchestra CORE update
"Thanks indeed for this extra commentary - that the samples are available dry. Like you, in a previous player I've used I've used a reverb bus. Reaper gives a fair bit of control. If the recordists are up to it I'd expect the quality to be excellent.…"

" Also want to thank Harmonius for the manual.
Hi Dane,
I agree some of the articulations are a bit vague and I'm not sure how much I will use some of them. Time will tell.
 I will need to add the other articulations to the articulations template I…"

"Hi, Harmonius,
Many thanks for the manual and info on keyswitches. No probbies at all about butting in!!
I tried the Discover freebie and it would without doubt have been valuable were I just setting out but was unusable for anything I might do:…"

"Hello Dane,

I will butt in to say that yes, keyswitches are programmable in BBC Core. Also, here is the manual: Dane Aubrun said:
Good Morning, Timothy,
Well, I'd be pretty happy about spitfire were I not already well set up with VSL. It's always…"

"Good Morning, Timothy,
Well, I'd be pretty happy about spitfire were I not already well set up with VSL. It's always appealed as an alternative orchestra (I mean, like the Vienna Symphony, the BBCSO is one of the world's top orchestras - it can…"

"Hi Dane,
I picked up CORE on a pretty good deal. Initially I was skeptical. There are many expanded articulations in CORE version .vs Discovery version. There are probably free articulation templates for Reaper from Spitfire. I made some up for…"

Thanks for keeping us informed. I still keep an eye on spitfire.
There are things - London Contemporary Strings...Choir.....  
Sometimes difficult to follow what their articulations mean. Long...short... "

"The Shimmer effect sounded like a cathedral on steroids but I enjoyed the mood it set. At night with lots of candles. An interesting and enjoyable arrangement of musical ideas based on that hymn.

Timothy Smith replied to Saul Gefen's discussion Light from the Darkness
"Hi Saul,
 I like the extended strings parts with sometimes varying shades. As a string composition this maintains a nice even rhythmic continuity throughout. I could hear loud and louder dynamics. 
I could hear horns parts in it to move it out of…"

  • Hi Tim, I looked at CF briefly this morning and I believe I saw a post from you talking about being affected by the pandemic situation and the particular difficulty it has for us as musicians. This is good to talk about since many of us have similar feelings I'm sure.

  • Welcome Timothy!
