Great sounds, with a bit poor VST compatibility. It is the first time that I don't find plugins in the list of callable VST. In the list there are only 2 versions of BigBang of the others there is no trace. Is it a my client's fault? it's possible! Why has it never happened to me and BigBang plug-ins appears correctly?
There's a reason I'm giving this product 5 stars... The quality. The sounds are top notch and for this price, passing up on an offer like this? You won't be dissapointed. Everything you need is in one of these 5 products.
Yes, the drums do crash, every time. Drove me nuts until I found (thanks to you, the guy who posted on one of the forums) that all you need to do is click 'learn' (centre, off to the left a little), it's a little bit of a pain to remember to do it every time but a (very) small price to pay for the massive collection of sounds at your disposal. Thought I'd share that here to lessen the frustration.
The other thing that niggles at me a little is the time it takes for each sound to load, not much of a niggle and again, considering the sheer amount of sounds, it's not really too surprising.
Overall, simply unbeatable value for money, they're more expensive to buy as single instruments, and you get them all for this crazy price?
Good sounds, especially Strings and '88' (Pianos). However, when attempting to play fast, repetitive Brass patches, the sounds get cut off. Also, there is at least one bad sample in the Flutes patch (e.g., E above middle-C) where the attack is cut off upon playing with medium or greater velocity. Percussion crashes frequently upon receipt of MIDI (e.g., played key).
Unbelievably good for the money. Woodwinds, brass and strings are great. The piano seems very deep. The Big Bang orchestral percussion crashes whenever it receives MIDI. Oh well, maybe it'll get updated?
You need to click on the "Learn" button first before feeding it any MIDI. Obscure, I know, but it seems to be the only workaround. I don't believe for a minute that these plug-ins will ever be updated but I picked the whole bundle up for $20 and many of the sounds are very good indeed.
