VSTBuzz: 50% off “Complete Orchestral Collection” by Peter Siedlaczek - Normally €178.99 now €88.99!   More information at http://vstbuzz.com/deals/50-off-complete-orchestral-collection-by-peter-sie

Spitfire Audio is discontinuing Albion Volume #1 and selling it for £149/$230. Not sure why they're discontinuing it, but it's a steal right now.   http://www.spitfireaudio.com/albion

https://producerschoice.leadpages.co/5-packs-1-dollar-fb/uh, whaaaaaaaat?   1$ for 5 producer's choice sample packs. For a buck I'll give em a shot

8dio is having a 25% off everything sale through the end of today, which is a pretty good deal considering their stuff goes up to $500. They make some fantastic virtual instruments; I've been eyeing a bunch of them for awhile now. Picked up their Songwriting Guitar 2.0 for $75 yesterday - it's basically a virtual rhythm guitar (acoustic & electric) that lets you play four of the most commonly used rhythms with any major/minor chord, plus it's got tons of effects. Looks like it'll be great for writing more typical "band" songs.

Also really, really want their 1928 Steinway Piano (absolutely beautiful sound), but I'm holding off on spending the money.

Since the last day of Kontakt 5 being half off is upon us, and I just got paid, can anyone in a timely fashion tell me if it's worth it? Also, what's the difference between the "update" version ($119) and the complete version ($200) on the site? Answers would be appreciated...

Now now, don't laugh; I'm a noob after all...

Update is if you have a previous version of Kontakt and want to update to version 5. If you don't have any version of Kontakt, you need the complete option.

As far as whether Kontakt is worth it: I don't think it's really worth buying for the included sample libraries; buy it if you're interested in using third party libraries that need Kontakt as a host (for example, stuff from 8Dio, Soniccouture, Soundiron, and Impact Soundworks).

Native Instruments upgrades, crossgrades, and updates all 50% off.

http://www.native-instruments.com/specials/summer-of-sound/

If you own Kontakt or something and want to transfer to Komplete, you can go to regular for $200 or Ultimate for $400.

Considering I and many others got Kontakt for $200 (I got 4, 2 years ago for black friday), you're looking at $400 for Komplete in total. That's $100 less through these sales.

Fuuuuuu...

Crossgrade to Komplete 8 for $200?

I guess I'm buying this instead of all those Steam games.

Question: has anyone used Session Strings Pro, and is it any good?

If you're considering going for Ultimate, then do it. It has so much more in the way of cinematic. (Which Komplete 8 has ZERO of)

Regular don't have Session Strings Pro, Evolve Mutations, or Evolve Mutations 2, and I think it's worth it for those alone. (worth the $200 difference in this case, I mean)

Still, I am disappointed Komplete has absolutely ZERO cinematic sounds except for the stock Vienna Kontakt orch. stuff.

As for if anyone has used Session Strings Pro, I have not, but zircon has Ultimate. You could ask him.

SampleTron is on sale for $29 for the next week. It's pretty nice if you're looking for some Mellotron or Optigan sounds.

BTW, make sure you grab the free version of Sampletank 2 if you get this. The version that you get with SampleTron is rather old. I had issues with it crashing in Reaper but all works well with the current version of Sampletank 2.
