Resources for sound libraries and more

Post by dickl » Mon Aug 22, 2016 8:01 am

A list of sound libraries, DAWs and other stuff you might find useful. It's aimed more at composers but it's still a good resource and it's a fairly comprehensive list of orchestral sounds (I never knew there were nearly so many!). It would be better if the comments section was populated but perhaps that comes later.

Oddly missing my favorite DAW, Mixcraft. Yes, it's easy to use so not as "serious" as some of the others, but has capabilities well beyond what most would need. Not sure why they have a "comments" column with no comments, work in progress?

Reading the "cover" page it seems that you should email the guy who set up the page with any comments so maybe you can tell him about Mixcraft :)

It's kind of a weird format isn't it, like he went from Excel to the web. It's a worthwhile project though. He should turn it into a Wiki so people can easily add their comments.

It's a google docs sheet, so google's web based excel equivalent.

Left out a few (Garritan, for one). And I guess Toontrack is also beneath this person's standards (Not even Superior Drummer??!!! C'mon! :evil: ) Latest Propellerhead Reason version is up to number 9 now and they fail to list Cakewalk Sonar's full selection of Artist, Professional and Platinum. Not a full list. Just the ones this person likes (Typical! :roll: )

It's aimed at composers rather than rock musicians so that might explain why some libraries are missing but I think he's aware of that and has asked for comments so you can email him.

It's more fun just to bitch about it here. :)

I know what you're saying, Dick, and maybe I'm being a bit too hard on the person. After all, there are so many out there it's almost impossible to keep up with everything. Maybe I'll email them with suggestions.

The Wiki digital audio editor / multitrack comparison is pretty comprehensive but still by no means complete.
