My questions are...
A. On any of the instruments I don't see a mono/poly/legato control. It seems like all of these instruments lean towards polyphonic play with pads & sequences and that's good, it's just I have a lot of those kind of Kontakt instruments already (without polyphony settings), just not to the same depth as these.
B. How are these instruments as far as providing more sub bass sounds & tones? Pretty much all of the demos I hear are mostly in the midrange of the keyboard. I know there are sub bass instruments for Kontakt available, but it would be nice if it had some versatility in that end. I usually like to work with the same type of instruments, for workflow reasons, so if these have deep tones as well as airy highs & thick middles, that would definitely push my decision along.
C. What kinds of oscillators are included in the synths? Is there a lot of crossover between Augment & Destiny or are they basically the same sounds with different engines & workflows?
Not that these are all deterrents, I'd just like to know ahead of time before purchasing. I'm pretty full on my instruments, and learning them all takes some time. Just some more info would help me out in crossing that group buy fence
A - Yes they are all Polyphonic only instruments and don't have mono legato capabilities, although you may have some success with the Kontakt Library Script but it hasn't been tested with them, so I'm not sure.
B - None are specifically for Bass, Augment certainly not, but Destiny and Singularity are Bass capable, but the emphasis of these instruments are mostly about complex sound layering. have you tried Singularity Lite? It's the free version which uses a single synth from Destiny, the extra voices are used as Unison Voices instead. That will give you a very good idea of how Destiny sounds as it's the same except Destiny has up to 11 individual layers, can also be used Multi-Timbrally and has more Waveforms.
C - Augment has it's own waveforms, and Destiny and the full version of Singularity have their own Waveforms too but also include the Cassetto tape Waves. There is a also a version of Augment (Augment ALT) which uses the Destiny waves which has a very different character to Augment. The Reanimator based products all have their own Loops, Reanimator has Loops specifically made for it whereas ReaniDrum uses some Loops from the back catalogue but has a couple of Drum Hit Banks created for it. ReaniTar uses loops from the HGS Back catalogue.
Hope that Helps
Thanks this does help alot. It might not be exactly what I need, but its a super great deal & fantastic instruments.
