    With all due respect to F. Belardino (and i'm one of his satisfied customers), this question, ,coming so soon in a thread, sounds to me like a an unappropriate one, and even like some kind of potential and disrespectful hijack for a new developer's announcement : the topic here is Guitars, not Choirs, is'nt it ?.......

    Aaron, I purchased your bundle yesterday night (I'm a real sucker for sampled guitars), and will install it during week-end.

    Looking forward to finding out about what you did since LD and Gunzlinger (but your mp3 demos give me a hint...).

    Unless I am reading you wrong ... ?
    Sorry Bela,
    there was absolutely nothing about you : Shakuman posted something (as quoted in my post), stating he was glad to hear from you, and requesting news about the Soprano's sequel.
    THAT sounded unappropriate to me, in the context of Aaron's annoucement.
    I indeed too often saw this kind of treads diverting from their original topic, something I always felt as not respectful for somebody's efforts (being yourself in this industry, I'm sure you understand) , and that time I just felt I had to tell it.

    I never misunderstood your own post, taking it only as an upfront "welcome" to Aaron who, I believe, has been one of your partners.
    But I did feel it not right that somebody seize this as an opportunity just to get an update about another developer's upcoming libs.

    And the poster, after reading me, likely felt the same, because he himself seems to have withdrawn his post.

    But I'll be glad if you tell us (in another thread) how the rest of the Vocal Tools libs is going !!

    As requested by scope4live, the first impressions.

    Well, for now, my feelings are... mixed.

    On the bright side :
    - the tone of the guitars is really sweet
    - the scripted hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato and slides globally give expected results.

    BUT, there are several things I already miss deeply, although this might be just me and my lack of knowledge of the lib,
    I hope that Arron and Steph can tell us that I'm wrong :

    -the most worrysome thing for me is that, as far as I can hear, there are NO release trails.... Maybe I've been spoiled with libs like Chris Heins' or Prominy's, but the sound of the string being released has become "this little something", along with subtle fret noises, which really makes me forget I play just a sampled guitar, and makes me feel more like it's the real thing. Here, every note ends the same "polite" way, which for me is very frustrating.
    Okay, if the guitar part is not exposed, and if the drums are loud in the mix, you're likely not to notice that.
    But for the performer playing at least, it makes a difference IMO.
    -there seems to be no vibrato notes (scripted or sampled), and the only way I found so far to get some "soul" on my notes seems to use the pitch bend very quickly and precisely, which is not always really handy in real time (for me at least), and even more for someone who likes vibrato a lot and often wants to get some of it. I wish there were a vibrato via aftertouch.
    -I did not find any real staccato articulation, and to my ears notes played short just don't make the same thing,
    -the "pick noise" makes unexpected er, noises, which IMO do not sound as believable pick noises, but more like just noise, this is my opinion anyway.
    -there is no chord script to be found, which (unsurprisingly) makes it quite a challenge to play a convincing rythm part "live", and calls for time consuming and awkward editing.
    -I can't really find a big difference in the various levels of velocity. I mean, it's next to impossible for me to produce either very soft notes or very loud ones. I can't -even approximately- guess by ear how many velocity layers per note there are (I'll have to check this in the editor). Yet I know for sure that my Kurzweil can definitely make very low and very velocities.

    This being said, take all of it with several grains of salt, because it might be just me being too stupid to find all those "missing" features where they are in fact (although I read the -short- manuals to search for those things, in vain).

    I do hope that the developers will show up to correct me, and I'll be delighted to be proven wrong.

    And also do not forget :
    -the mp3 demos sound nice, so probably a more skilled player than me will make good things without finding as many shortcomings than I,
    -this is version 1 of the lib, so adding a few samples and/or a couple more scripts to accomodate the users' tastes and suggestions is not unlikely !
