well, my installation of TS2 was pretty banal. the Mach Five version had a few too many folder levels and as soon as i found the one with the .M5b tag i was ready to go. i just pulled it out of the folders it was in (2 levels too deep) and put it in the machfive sounds folders did a rescan of my samples et voilá!
the EXS install went equally as trouble free. i just had to move the instruments folder to the correct drive and i was up and running in no time!
for EXS I just loaded in the DVD. it asked me for my serial number. i entered it. then it asked me what format(s) i wanted to install. i chose EXS and it did its thing in about an hour or so.
it installs the samples folder and the instrument folder on the same chosen drive. so i chose to install the 2 on the sounds drive that i have set up for EXS then transfered the instruments folder back to my main hard drive then i was ready to go.
So, I'm thinking of picking up True Strike 2, and I'm trying to decide if I should get it bundled with True Strike 1. How does TS1 stack up against things like Ultimate Orchestral Percussion & London Percussion?
