Best Service and Sonuscore always deliver!
This library really makes it easy to create musical stories for cinema, game and trailer.
There are many useful sound design and composing tools included as well as inter-communication between instances to transmit the chord progression. In addition you can drag&drop the chords and melodies.
Here is my review and demo:Read Review
UVI released UVI Synth Anthology 4 rebuilding the sound engine adding layering option (two sound layers), effects and modulations. As with such UVI sound banks this is not an emulation of the original hardware synth but more of a sampled sounds player. But with about 200 units sampled and tones of presets I guess there is a lot to explore.
This is so much fun and inspiring. Arturia take on TB303 is so good and with all the goodies Arturia added.
Arturia recreated the original unit as virtual instrument but also added sub oscillator, distortion unit, sequencer, modulation and cool effects.
Watch my deep dive for more details.Read Review
This is a simple Kontakt library with lot's of violin phrases for moody and mellow vibes.
The phrases can be played in any key and each set has sevral phrases and endings.
Here is my walkthrough and demo:
If you are looking for emotuinal violin phrases this library is perfect. There's also legato library included with simple long phrasing on each note.

[Note: This product requires a FULL version of Native Instruments' Kontakt. The free Kontakt player is not sufficient, as it only runs the instrument in DEMO mode.].

Gary Gibbons and OMF done it again with this massive preset pack (650 presets!).
The sounds are well designed and take Padshop to the exteme. Many of the presets are geared for game audio and cinematic but definitly you can find sounds for pretty much anything.
Here is my review and demo.Read Review
This expansion covers a lot of ground. All presets are arranged in categories and they do sound great. The pack is geared for cinematic and soundscape type of sounds but can be used to spice any gener.
Black Orb: 150 new presets for Padshop
This Padshop Expansion absorbs iconic vintage synthesizers, obscure modular synths and a variety of organic sounds into a dark mass, only to be further mangled by everything Padshop has to offer. The result is a hybrid of gloomy lurking drones, raw pads, aching arpeggios and powerful pulses which push the boundaries of electronic music, feature film, game, TV and trailer scoring.Read Review
Analog Lab V is perfect for any one interested in quick access to 11K and more presets from Arturia's V Collection synths.
Even if you have some or all instruments it's a great tool for searching sounds across the collection. Focusing on sound rather than specific instrument is a great way to docus on what matters most.
The power of this tool is the ease of use, search and filters of the presets but you can tweak the sounds and create layered sounds which is very useful.Read Review
This synth is a faithful recreation of the Prophet 5.
I love the sound and indeed looks like Softube nailed it.
They also added an extended panel with additional features as well as aging dial to create aging effect.
Here is a full overview with sound demo and all you need to understand how to use this synth.
This is a versatile collection of orchestral instruments. Very easy to use, lot's of articulations and definitly fun.
