Regarding the 5% Off discount, does that work if your prior purchase was already previously made as part of the Group Buy?

I already bought Pop/Rock Strings (diggin' it mucho) as part of the Group Buy a few days ago, so do I get the 5% discount if I also now buy Spotlight Stings?

The 5% only applies if you were to have purchased before the Group Buy.

Thanks very much. That totally makes sense, just wanted to be sure, 'cause didn't think it did (or should).

Peace

Any idea when you'll release them, and will they be for all four instruments?

Should be during March. 4 new violins, 4 new violas, 4 new cellos.



Very cool!!! :)

I'm really digging ESA and Pattern Maker in Pop/Rock Strings I just bought (they're brilliantly well done). I love automation stuff like that, and I need it especially since I'm a real bad keyboard player (I'm a guitar player).

So, I was wondering if you'll ever put something like ESA and/or Pattern Maker into Spotlight, and if so:

(1) any time frame guesstimate, and
(2) would that be a paid upgrade (maybe something like the TVEC upgrades, and maybe around the same price, about $30ish+ or so)?

Currently, there is no plan to do ESA or PatternMaker in Spotlight. It would likely exceed the limit for Kontakt scripting lines. I'm not saying that I will NEVER do it, but it's unlikely at this time.

I appreciate the "work in progress" aspect, although i already like the present samples.
I think the criticisms of Kirk's strings (on e.g. vicontrol.com) come from folks who have never heard a string instrument close by, but rely on "sanitised" strings in the more "soupy" libraries. i like a bit of "grain": its what I hear when I play..

The immense progress in Kirk's scripting is evident if we consider that SS1 is twice as big as Spotlight, but half as malleable.

Another discovery is the combination instrumentsin CS2, which even includea solo section (one octave each of bass, 'cello, and viola, the rest violin, all beautifully dovetailed): this will help me with my problems of ranges. At least for the moment..

Will the new Spotlight instruments to be released in March replace the current instruments, or are they additional instruments?

I can answer your questions. The upcoming violins, violas and cellos sampled instruments will be added to the existing Spotlight String instruments. While some people have expressed a strong preference for the new patches Kirk has shared, others prefer the existing samples, so this way, users can choose the version they prefer.

Great, thanks. I guess that does not mean we'll be getting four new players for each of the four sections which can be mixed and matched or otherwise be interchangeable or expanded to octets.
Looking forward to the expansion and thanks for the great work.

Sounds great! I've got the first part downloading now. Gotta run to work; I'll play when I get home.
I wish I could sing as well as the voices inside my head...

New releases of Spotlight Strings will ADD TO, (not replace) the original release.

Question: A few different new versions were posted. Can you specify exactly which one you heard that you really liked?
