Picked up Trash 2 and the two expansions.

JRRBlowouts has the best pay-now price ($23.99)

TimeSpace offers 2000 loyalty points for iZotope purchases (which is about $10) so it has the best "cashback" kind of price. Paying in Euros shaves a couple bucks off the price (in the USA).
Don't let me buy any more ethnic winds.

Thank you both for the opinions.
Yes, I will demo it. But since you mention character, it seems to be more appropriate for rock or similar sounds. As I make electronic music maybe the use is more limited?

A clear no. I make kind of ambient electronic music and it fits quite well for synth and sample leads bringing in some movement and instability. However, have a try yourself.

Anybody bought this? Listen to all the demos. Damn!. A nobrainer imo. only 1 day left.
Still wondering if the Izotope deal is worth it. It get's real cheap at JRR.

Honestly, it doesn't seem very flexible. I'd rather have a sampled dry library or a live recording of a drum performance than a sampled drum library in space with long decay times, which depending on what gets played, can sound very unnatural, becoming a mixing headache. But if it works for you, then great!

I understand how you feel and i would normally agree but if you listen to the pop demo they have there and others you'll be surprised. I know i was. Letting Go (funk_disco) is the tittle. I'm very impress with the cymbals and the hithats. Very detailed and believable imo.
What ever!

Forgot to say they cut off the tail with the adsr on the kit to sound like that.

Just listened to that track. It needs to be mixed better. The drums, as they get busier and louder, sound more and more like they're in a car garage, the keys are dry, the guitar has different types of reverb at different points... and yes that CAN work (different verbs for different instruments - something done quite often), but here it doesn't work because its noticeable. The mix shouldn't be noticeable - in a distracting way.

if I just double the Arturia VST's to two tracks, I think I am achieving the same sonic results (to my ears anyways).
Interesting! Does the Jupiter 8V have polyphonic unison? If so, I guess that would giving you a similar effect without having to load 2 instances.

That‘s my fear as well, to have the next bunch of abandonware... :scared:
But hope dies last (Lord, let there be upgrades!)
Alloy is the only one I can remember them officially abandoning and it sometimes gets nice upgrade pricing to Neutron. Nectar seemed like abandonware but then 6 years later Nectar 3 was released, so who knows?
