Miroslav Philharmonik 2 CE
Reviewed By krofork
April 20, 2021

4 star only in case of discount price <50$. For full price it would be2-3.

Cons:

Despite it has "legato" patches you will not be able to use them - it seems there is no people who know what to do with MP2 CE "legato" articulations. Algorithm of using "legato" mode differs from usual, but what it exactly is... no info in the manual, no info in forums. Supposedly "legato" patches should be used in fast runs - at least in this way the sound makes sense.

Pros:

Full orchestra at decent price. Good sample recording. It is much more usable, than free alternatives (vsco ce, labs, bbc so discovery). It does not allow you to make pure orchestral music, but you can write decent melodies/parts and not only "organic textural pads".

It makes almost no sense for full price - better get more money for more powerful alternatives.I do not see point to buy full version of MP either - you will have higher sample resolution and a bit more articulations with the "non-legato legato".

For discounted price it is good, sometimes very good.

Classic Equalizer

Easy to use, nice interface and excellent quality. The only downside is that you have to download the IK multimedia Custom Shop and it comes with all the plugins for the T-RackS on trial mode, so you end up with more than 20 plugins you will never use unless you buy them. But still, it is a good plugin nontheless.

Definetly my to go compressor, especially for drums and vocals. It glues everything together while also giving a bit of flavor and color to the signal. Simple yet so powerful. An excellent emulation.

This is probably the worst, buggiest and most dysfunctional piece of software you get by actually spending money.

SampleTank 4 CS
Reviewed By elviecho
February 5, 2021

5 GB harddisk space gone for what? A bunch of not too bad effects, and many boring instrument presets.
I've would have been impressed by this if we had 1998, but in 2021 it is just a waste of space and time.
Sorry IK, I love your Modo Bass but Sampletank is an inflated dinosaur and, in my opinion, the same applies to NI's Komplete Start.
Big but boring.

MODO Drum
Reviewed By magmagwa
October 13, 2020

Snare sounds great and you can program Left and Right hits. Toms are good too.

Cymbals are samples and kick is sloppy with not a lot of control.

Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.6.

Reaper 6.14.

Modo Drum 1.5.2 (lastest).

Crashes all the time, unusable.

T-RackS One
Reviewed By iKalamaZoo
August 17, 2020

Firstly: We can't manager DEauthorize process of single products like T-Racks One or Amplitude SVX or Metal. They are single modules. I installed T-RACKS 5 One module in my machine, so I have 9 authorisations left in my T-Racks 5 One page, then I clicked in DEauthorize button in Product Manager but it let me ONLY DEauthorize T-racks 5 CS, not the T-RACKS 5 One. So, T-Racks One keep with 9 authorizations left. When I click in IK Product Manager the program let me DEauthorize the T-RACKS 5 Custom Shop ONLY and NOT my T-Racks 5 One, you cannot recover that! 1 authorization WASTED!

Secondly: The same occurs with my Amplitude 4. I clicked in DEauthrorize my Amplitude 4 but my Amplitude 4 Metal (Single Module) and SVX (Single Module) are NOT DEauthorized because they are single modules. So, even if you DEauthorize a product, you CAN'T REALLY DEauthorize a single module like T-Racks 5 One or Amplitube SVX like me. It means that you will WASTE authorizations of your single modules.

I would like to be able to DEAauthorize PAST authorizations as well.

Thridly: In addition, there are a lot of problems syncing the software you own, for example, you can DEauthorize T-Racks, Amplitube or Sample Tank CS, but you CAN'T DEauthorize a separate module from these products, like T-Racks One, Amplitube Metal or Amplitube SVX. The app does not sync with your account and your authorizations remain wasted. So, if you have 4 authorizations for Amplitube Metal or 3 for Amplitube SVX, for example, you CAN'T DEauthorize these 4 or 3 authorizations. You only can DEauthorize the Custom Shop or a single product like Miro2 CE or Full Edition in a machine you have Product Manager installed.

Lastly: If you are wondering buy any sample from IK, then CAUTION, you only can download the SOUNDS within 180 days period. So, are you really the owner or you are just renting this product? Passed this 180 days period you have to contact IK Team to HAVE PERMISSION to download a thing YOU HAVE BOUGHT by paying additional U$10 dollars or Euros.

Buying IK products is more like a lease/rent of this product, you can't feel that you're really the OWNER. There is always a "trick" (like auhtorization limit) or whatever to make you contact IK Team in future to ask about more authorizations if you need...

I'm slowly migrating to another enterprise who offer me a more easy authorization process and manager or can offer me a service less burocratical... Lucklly, I own only T-Racks One and Miro2 CE, I'm looking to sell them in order to recover my money and invest in another enterprise.
