Geosonics is especially cool because you can use the underlying field recordings itself as they are.

How does Canterbury Suitcase compare to EP73 Deconstructed?

Electro-Acoustic is the freshest way to use classic drum machines. Great for electronica.

haunted spaces and the ian boddy snapshots are fantastic. since i already own most of the soniccouture libraries that interest me, i think i'll go for the electro-acoustic library during the sale.
cheers

Thanks. The page I was looking at didn't have that for some reason.

This isn't going to happen for me then. If I had the money I'd buy the whole lot, even as 5 of them would be redundant.

IK wonder the same. The Euclidian seems like a nice tool to have. So does anybody know if it is possible to add you own samples to the instrument and make a new Kit for Konkrete?

Xtended Piano
Glassworks
Geosonics
Gamelan
Konkrete

Haha, my top five favorites. Soniccoutre make some great stuff, excellent samples, excellent programming, and excellent service.

You can route the midi out (if your DAW can do it), but no you can’t load samples into Konkrete.

Yes, they extensively sampled a lot of drum machines. Not just dry but through vintage analog gear and PA systems. They also have 3 good interfaces for pattern programming. A ridiculous amount of work went into this. I think it is more interesting than Wave Alchemy's drum machine products.

I have the novachord and ondes libraries. I like them both, but don't use them as much as I should.

+1 on Electro-Acoustic as well, I went with this over Wave Alchemy drums too. The collection
might not be as large, but it comes with tons of character. Another amazing effort from Soniccouture imho.
Konkrete is awesome as well, I thought everybody already knew as much.

-Cheers

^^^ I heard their demos. Can ElectroAcoustic or Konkrete do soft, offbeat, jazzy textures, or just drummachine style?

Electro Acoustic can do whatever you need, in as much as they are sampled drum machines.
Fortunately, all the kits can be used dry or with a large variety of processing and recording
treatments, e.g. the main point of the library.

Konkrete is more specialized in that it's sounds are out of the ordinary for the most part.
Soft jazzy sounds are in there probably, but mostly few and far between I would think.
Think of a loud, interesting and complex sound palate when thinking of Konkrete.

IMHO...

*Personally, I wouldn't rule out Konkrete for anything. As an untrained amateur, I believe,
for myself, out of the ordinary is the best chance I have to produce anything that could
possibly be thought of as being truly significant.
