The load is over 8 gig which is a good 4x plus larger than my 2nd largest library at about 1.8 gig. So the 5 minute load time actually makes sense mathematically. Still, that is a long time to load up a library.

You may have tried it already, but if you haven't then a batch resave (eg https://soundiron.com/pages/pro-tip-1-run-a-kontakt-batch-resave-on-your-libraries-to-speed-up-instrument-load-times) does sometimes produce dramatic improvements in loading times for larger libraries.


Yep, wrote company, tried it, worked. Thanks.

Not that I'm spending very much time sound designing with it at the moment, but if I had to choose one, it's Omnisphere. I feel really comfortable in it. If I'm going to work on a new sound, Omnisphere is my goto synth. I've always wanted to learn the old version of Alchemy, but I've not spent the dedicated time I need to learn it.

ArcSyn - it really specializes in weirdness. Loads of fun.

Cypher 2 - what's up with it? I thought it has yet to see the light of day? or are you a beta tester?

I finished reading the manual of Massive :D It was a great read and almost everything is clear to me now. The manual needs to be updated though, many minor things (labels, positions) have changed, but anyway the core info is very useful. I feel in control now for this great synth :) Still of course I need to practice, but I want to concentrate on using this synth and ... Diva.

Yes, Diva will be next. I hope the manual would be enough (as was the case with Massive). I believe Diva and Massive can cover 90% of my synthesis need. I'm so happy to have them both :D
i5 & i7 Windows 10 64bit, Presonus iTwo, PX-5S, Blofeld and Yamaha HS7.
Cubase 9 Artist, S1v3.5 Pro, Notion 6, FLS Producer 12, Reaper 5, and some nice soft synths and effects.

I've been learning ACE and Bazille lately (with help from some good advice I've gotten here). I love the idea of modular synths, so I figured semi-modular was a good place to start. Bazille has been especially fun, since it has somewhat different approaches to even the typical synth parts, like its oscillators and LFOs.

Well, it's a new month and I'm toying with VirtualCZ and Prophet VS, two synths that I think don't get nearly enough love.

I was messing with Arturia Prophet V yesterday (in anticipation of Repro-5), and it has some nice presets. The LowStrings are particularly interesting with the unison, although it goes through the roof in terms of CPU sometimes (increasing polyphony and release times). A good tip: Get an external unison effect, like MeldaProduction MUnison, which is more CPU efficient but bizarre in complexity and workflow is awful.
