This. Komplete 8 went down to 300 bucks just before 9 came out.

@step - I sell the shit so I'll let you know when that happens with 9. Its still worth the 500 bucks though if youre too excited to wait almost a year for 200 dollar savings.

Trillian and EW Pianos arent exactly worth it unless you plan on making rather specific songs featuring those instruments. Also, I coulda sworn you already had EW orchestra....but hell yeah its worth it if you dont have that.

Other software thats worth it right now you might consider:

Izotope Ozone 5 - mastering suite
Sound Toys native effects - mixing effects suite

If you are wanting to wait and these 2 effects suites dont fit your fancy, then a MIDI keyboard is probably the way to go. Here are my respective suggestions for that:

If you arent a keyboard player and want something small - Novation SLMKII 49 key controller

If you are a pianist or care about having actual piano action for better playing control - Akai MPK88

Knowing me, I'll probably get it while its 550. Are there any other reasons as to not get this? I have heard many great things about the plugins being offered..

You can choose what you install though. I mainly use the softsynths from Komplete and got rid of all the Battery samples I didn't use. It's just too bad I can't choose what Kontakt samples I want. I know there are some I won't ever use but others are handy to have.

Pros:
-Kontakt is a pretty awesome sampler
-Battery sampler gives decent tweaking options
-Massive makes awesome low end basses
-FM8 is awesome for pads
-ABsynth can make some strange noises
-Guitar Rig is so much fun
-Reaktor has some nice effects and compressors

Cons:
-Kontakt can be a Memory Hog and not much of the instruments really jump out as impressive
-Battery samples are meh
-Massive is so easy to recognize
-FM8 can feel thin sometimes (and in my experience the effects and ASDR buses always reset while the values don't)
-ABsynth can be ear rape at random times so be careful.
-Guitar Rig is kind of a memory hog but other than that i have nothing bad to say about it.
-Reaktor will make you say: "what is this I don't even?"

if there's enough negative or "this wasn't helpful" or whatever things, I think it automatically removes the review.

Hey guys. I doubt this warrants a thread until it's got enough discussion/support. Wonder if Chronamut would see this, since he is normally responsible for hosting the Represent a Country contests..... or can he not do that anymore considering what happened to the NACs?

An idea came to my mind about the RAC this year, if it should be held again.... I was thinking something along these lines:

What if, all the songs in this year's RAC borrowed a motif from a children's song from each country? There we'd be 1) using public domain material, 2) asking the participants to come up with something original based on that motif they borrowed, 3) asking them to stick to the influences from the country they're representing.

I don't know, I thought it might be interesting...
