The Orchestra Essentials
Reviewed By qsource
June 20th, 2022

Sonuscore did a fine job of sampling the orchestral sounds for this VI. The Kontakt interface is interesting and fairly basic. I was able to set up some sketch-style ensembles for composition. They might even be passable for certain kinds of background recordings.

Unfortunately, the arpeggiator has not impressed me so far. It seems to have very limited features and almost no randomization options -- not as mature as several other orchestral hybrid VIs among my sound libraries.

Real Handpan

very authentic feel, great percussive sounds, I'm still discovering all the possibilities. The various sound banks complement each other well, keysitch function works fine, but its easier to open two or three instruments with different soundsbanks simultaneously.

It is a pretty good convolution reverb which doesn't eat up as many of your resources as say Inspirata I do wish that you could import and use third party Impulse Responses like Convology XT or the Melda one which I can't remember right now.

Desert Winds
Reviewed By hoegerf
December 17th, 2021

Good Sounds in a terrible engine.

If this library was a Kontakt-App with NKS, it might be acceptable for the price, but unfortunately Bestservice does not focus enough for best engines. Even on a classic iMac 2017 configuration (bigSur/Intel) the Engine does not provide an acceptable and readable surface scale, sliders and knobs do not run liquid, the usability is unusual and strange, my Komplete S61-Keyboard, same age as the library is not shown in standalone-mode, only as plugin.

The library is only an extract of "Ancient Era-Persia", the price is, comparing to the content & performance, far too expensive. The solo instruments are partly good, flutes are not convincing, but Duduk is a good Adaption.
Nevertheless, the Ambiences are really convincing and match the Focus of the Library.

In times where Crossgrades of NI Komplete Ultimate 13 are sold for 550€, the full price of Desert Winds is a mystery.

The library urgently needs an update after 9 years and f.e. a Version for a professionel Surface like Kontakt, Halion etc. the quality of the material wood justify this.

A wealth of useful presets with comprehensive routing and editing possibilities.

Totally inspirational.

Desert Winds

Got it during a sale for less than half the original price, and it's great! Up to now all soundscapes I checked are really useful, esp. winds are realistic with some parameters to customize. And the wind instruments sound very natural. To be able to choose from microtuning scales makes them sound even more realistic. A worthwhile addition, esp. if you are able to purchase discounted, for composers and producers in need for natural sounding ambiences and exotic moods.

Arabic Oud
Reviewed By cybergenic
January 4th, 2020

The ENGINE interface is not the prettiest environment to navigate but this distraction is quickly forgotten once you start combining these amazing Oud samples with articulations.

The ENGINE FX are fairly impressive in their own rite.

I have been looking for a plugin like this for years.

Pump an ARP into this thing and the possibilities are endless, .

Well done Bassam Ayoub - you have no doubt invested every inch of your technological, historical and musical knowledge into this product.

No, I don't like registration procedure either. It came in ONLY German on my part, and I had to register all kinds of things already just as if I were buying a real license. Best Service? A name change would be appropriate, to Worst Service, because this one beats all the former unwieldy and cumbersome registration process of any manufatcurer, software or whatever out there. You can't change language to English either. And as such the - alleged stellar reverbs - about the actual reverbs aren't sufficient and stellar enough to justify going through those ordeals, even if you try to register and buy it for real. If this is what is required for downloading a free version, I don't want to know about any real registration procedure for a real bought/licensed product.

As for that, when I finally got that free version installed, it failed to register on several hosts, both VST and AU, as I ran it on a modern Mac. Unwieldy and cumbersome, even when finally installed and opened it. Ok, enough of raining on their parade.

Other software that accepts loading IRs from Bricasti and everything else fares just as well, in terms of sound quality, Arts acoustics, and whatever else there are out there that accepts IR's (well done IR's), will produce just as similar results. The thing is you can't free up the IRs of this one and use it in whatever other (better) GUI reverb plugin there is out there. Ok, sound quality? Well, the IR's are certainly well done, but as with Bricasti IR's and especially QRS (Quantec) they fall a little short. As a freeware, there are others that performs equally as good, I can't judge the bought/registered version, but the basic reverb is the same although you can't save, or edit as much. QRS sounds flat as a pancake, at least compared to the real hardware thing. I don't say it's totally useless, but for us that wants to try out free version before one plunges into the real deal, there are alternative options that has better GUI, and easier to load 3rd party IRs on. And of course, better registration procedures...(I mean, c'mon what have these guys been smokin'... really?).
