Thanks Sam. Wow definitely some serious work you and your team put in there.

WIPS and the Nils script don't seem to play well together. I actually found an old vi-control thread about this. So I should probably just make two separate nkis.

Were the community samples phase locked (as if I knew what that meant) before I screwed them up?

Also thanks for your folder to sfz program. I've been getting random grumbles from people who want sfz instruments (not VSCO2, you got that covered) and the doing it from scratch thing ain't happening as I'm way to lazy.

Many of the instruments are phaselocked for non-vibrato sustains (phaselocking vibrato would take out the pitch variance which would understandably sound weird). However, I did undo phaselocking for several so they sound a lot better when you play polyphonic on them (if everything is phaselocked and you play a chord it sounds very "flat" spatially).

The nice thing about phaselocking is even if you offset the starts, you shouldn't have too bad phasing because it'll be at a constant offset (hopefully).

I've been working on preparing a "laundry list" for some new features for the sfz program- little things only (although I am thinking about trying to have it done so it can do dynamic crossfading). If you have anything, let me know.
Thanks for helping me wrap my head around dynamic cross-fading, phase locking and all these other things I never knew existed. The non-vibrato samples do sound pretty good to me without too much phasing that I'm noticing. I think I'll try it with the originals as well and see what difference I can hear. I do love how smooth the velocity curve is with the Nils' script. It makes me want to try it out on other things as well.

The one thing to note about crossfading that is a little counter-intuitive is that many times fewer velocity layers leads to a better result. Sounds weird, I know, but for example, I believe much of Albion (Spitfire) is only like two or three velocity layers if I recall.
1950's Olds Super tenor trombone. Unreleased sample set done as a test for VSCO 2. Released in the community edition 1.1.
Kontakt latest version (I think, I upgrade by mistake)
I tried several things. A WIPs version for legato, Nils CC1 crossfading script, the BC version has the shorts and others cut tight. Any feedback appreciated.

I noticed you had a trumpet picture... here's a picture of the actual instrument-

(unfortunately I sold it a long time ago so I can't take more shots of it)

Also, I have yet to take the plunge to 5.6, so I can't test it yet. Hopefully someone else can. Smile
Thanks for the picture.
Yeah I really shouldn't have upgraded, but I suppose eventually everyone will get some newer version.
Inspired by the Pro version, I tried to figure out how to make things less ugly...

I think I got the Solo Violin correct. I did discover many mistakes along the way and that I'd been doing WIPs wrong. Well live and learn. Anyway there is a WIPs version for legato and sometimes faux round robins, a xfade version for the main sustain articulation and a ensemble version for well a fake ensemble. I also redid the structure based on Sam's version. It now has samples and resources in separate folders and the instruments in separate folder for strings, brass, woodwinds, keys and percussion. I think it is more professional now. Anyway here is the solo violin and old trombone to give some idea. It is Kontakt 5.6.5, but someday folks will upgrade, I'm pretty sure...

Looking good BC!
The entirety of VSCO 2: CE 1.1 is now on Freesound. You can audition sounds and all metadata is listed on the descriptions in a nice orderly fashion for easy credit and fun facts-
http://www.freesound.org/browse/tags/vsco-2/

You can also access them by instrument/group:

(do note that Freesound compresses the previews quite a bit so there may be some "squeaks" and other slight artifacts that aren't there in the real recording)
