Hi Claudio - I have had very good luck loading my own samples, and a recent update now allows one to load samples other than 48Khz. I have managed to load a huge library of Foley samples which came with Adobe Audition, as well as test imported samples from a number of older Halion libraries which i own. It’s a very useful tool, with capabilities you don’t begin to grasp until you start playing around with it! Between Scaler, Soundpaint, and Unify, I have a workstation which is hard to beat.
I have the Soundpaint Melody Maker (they were also calling it a jazz guitar for a while). I like the sound of it very much, but the playability is another story. Since keyboard playing is not my strong suit, and since making a guitar sound real is totally due to playing as a guitarist would play (both chord structure and technique), I have leaned more toward the Amplesound guitars:
I have their acoustic Martin, and the playing styles, chord strucures, and picking techniques built into each instrument are amazing! You can download and try out a free version (the guitars and the Precision bass as well). The interface is a bit daunting at first, and they are not cheap at all, but you can come up with some very musical results very quickly, and there are good tutorials and documentation. They do go on sale regularly, so you can snap up a title at considerable savings now and then (I think their Christmas sale is still on right now). The electric guitars are amazing real!
As to my website, and my career in TV production and animation, I am retired from that now, having been in the TV industry for over 30 years. Prior to that I was a working musician, playing electric bass, flute, and saxes (I was on the road for 5 years).
Yes I got the Soundpaint sax and it is the best one I have ever found. Also bought the Soundpaint clarinet and it is quite good too. (Some of the sister company 8dio is hit and miss though. The 8Dio Studio Sax was a disappointment but their Clarinet was fabulous.)
But the Soundpaint Tenor Spectralis is fantastic. Really sounds good. I used both their Sax and Clarinet in my track:
If anyone wants to get $15 off a Soundpaint purchase you can use my discount coupon:
Yes, I have both the sax and the flute and they both sound terrible, unusable! I have a case logged in with soundpaint and they’re still on it, I hope. The incompatibility seems to be particular to my system (imac, catalina and logic pro). It’s interesting to know which system you have.
