I was told this by my pals in the Newgrounds Audio Portal, but EastWest is giving out free sampleset starter kits (say that five times fast) for their symphonic stuff.

Which is really awesome, considering that buying this stuff costs hundreds of dollars.

Follow that link, complete a short internet survey, get a confirmation code, and download away!

Also, this is apparently only good for the first 50,000 users or something like that, so get this fast, like I did!

Also:

Of course, if you choose not to upgrade, you get to keep this version which is not time limited, and not copy protected!!

I like spreading news about good deals (even though I'm pretty virtually unknown here), so I'm giving those who want some good free orchestral sounds a nice heads-up!

Also, Kontakt/Kore releases holiday cheer for prospective musicians.

SWEET. Thanks for the heads up!

Seriously, we have the utmost faith that once you get to experience this starter version you will want to upgrade to the Gold, Platinum, or Platinum Plus versions with their extensive articulations and other enhanced features;
LOL, even if this starter kit does convince me that I want the full version, I DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY! Soooo...yoink. Later, suckers!
and if you don't, it's our gift to you!
Oh. Ok then. That's very nice of you, thanks :)

Is it just me or is the installer... not installing?

It just says "The features you selected are currently being installed." but it doesn't look like anything is happening.

I got a 1721 error (whatever that is) and to fix it I had to run the installer in compatibility mode (right click > properties > compatibility tab) and completely disable User Account Control from the control panel.

I'm running Win 7 64bit and using the 64bit installer.

Mostly positive reviews so far. I don’t like the default release settings. Everything sound flooded with reverb. That can be changed though. Some of the samples have audible hiss when played alone, but in context I’m sure they’re fine. Also, the first time I ran it, it froze Sonar. However it’s been fine ever since.
