I got lucky and managed to trick the installer to use the hard drive it came on. Komplete is a very good idea. The sounds are great, very useful on a wide range of projects. Just had to update to 11 for Unacorda if nothing else, but Blocks, Form, Prism (!) and Kontour. What's not to like

Almost bought soundtoys 5.. but then I realized I have good alternatives to pretty much every plugin contained in it. I'm proud of myself

I spent some time comparing Little Plate to the Plate presets on Valhalla Vintageóglad Little Plate was free! Nothing immediately stuck out as better in either, except Vahalla is way more flexible for about the same money.

Likewise, Devil Loc didnít do anything to drums I couldnít accomplish with Presswerk. Iím guessing Echoboy isnít much an improvement over the tools Iíve got either. Glad I skipped it! Iíve also got concerns the iLok software may stop being supported in Windows 7, best I not rely on anything that needs iLok.

Yeah, I'm glad I went with it compared to buying a few bits separately, covers the spectrum!

No, no rumors, I just had to force my Windows 7 machien to do a bunch of ďnon essentialĒ (according to Windows) updates to get the iLok software to work.

I also went for Komplete this year. I did this fancy thing where I first bought Kontakt 5 because I had discount on it (got it for 129 or something) and then separately crossgraded to Komplete. It's funny how doing this makes no sense except it was over 250€ cheaper.

yea totally..

Plus I'm just trying to behave in a way that will help me stay focused on the fact that tools aren't that big of a deal. Especially nowadays.. I've had really high quality plugins for a long time now, and yet I've still wasted a lot of time considering new ones.

Obviously there are some that come along that are really worth it... Geist 2 was pretty big for me when it came out; Harmor is also a big one. But I'm trying to just work with what I got unless it's something revolutionary. I have so many freaking plugins!

whenever I feel like I need more plugins I go listen to the demo tracks on the PSP sequencer website.

Yeah..ditto on that. That's one that I really like the look of..and every demo video I've seen makes it look and sound like a keeper..and it's reasonably priced, too, if my memory serves me right.

will do! I am planing to make better reviews on my synth channel, but I am waiting for the laws on net neutrality that may or may not go in effect. So far I have used it in at least 3 songs. I have not gotten really deep into it, but I feel like it will play well with the matrixbrute. The wide range of sounds on the presets have impressed me so far. They did not just make classic analog sounds and funk presets, but have ambient sounds and industrial sounds.
