  • Please tell me which Beathawk expansion pack I need to buy. They’re all great sounding. Which do you use mostly?

    Their sound ware is very very nice. I’m all over their stuff, so I’m not much help I’m afraid. What genres do you work in? Or want too play with?

  • Thx @Littlewoodg that even helps. Don’t need anything, don’t care about genres but want... Latin, Gypsy, Ethno stuff is intriguing and could add some spice.

  • What of this BeatHawk 3 update that was mentioned last year... ?

  • Gypsy Jazzy, Guitar Loops, Africa, Cuba, choirs, tutti, Baroque, piano all dope especially for the sale price, can’t go wrong. Just look to see what it says in the description if you want loops too because the bullets at the bottom sometimes list the number of presets and samples but don’t always list if the pack has loops

    I’m on the version 2.2.12 beta program, with no word on a 3, so far. If anyone has any issues I can pass them on.

    True and true.

    Also @Peanutcram there is the preview button in the IAP “store” (which i always forget about, because I buy their stuff as it drops, without preview)

    I get what you mean, no particular genre here either, and in a way that’s what BeatHawk is for (for me). Bring any (every) flavor into your project, in one AUv3. Not to mention that as a standalone its a very complete sample based workstation with exportable stems, all kinds of step control etc etc

    @Littlewoodg after the last update that re-enabled sending MIDI CC to unselected pads, it’s still a bit glitchy. Here’s a note I sent the team:

    it’s a bit buggy for me.

    If I modify one CC at a time, it works fine. But as soon as I start modifying the same parameter across two or more channels, only one channel updates.

    For example: play a consistent quarter note on two different channels. Assign a MIDI knob to each channel’s PAN. Sweep both knobs from 0 – 127 at the same time. Only one channel’s audio will pan until you stop panning the other knob.

    Do you know if this is fixed on the beta?

    Cheers mate, I guess it’s gonna be the Gypsy pack.

  • Hi Gang

    Are there any solo violin instruments in any of the packs?

    Thanks.

  • Maybe in the pack « Gipsy Jazzy » but not sure though.

  • @LoopyFruit, you might be looking for the SWAM violin, Thumbjam or PureSynthPlatinum.

    Thanks.

    The “String Ensemble” pack. Sustain, pizzicato, spiccato, marcato, trills, runs...useful stuff, high quality, and a bargain even after the sale.

  • Hi Gang

    Thanks for the responses,

    @Paulo164 the Gipsy Jazzy violins are just loops but are quite good sounding, I will try to edit some in the sample editor thanks.

    @LinearLineman thanks I'm trying to keep things compact by just using BeatHawk for sketching things out, but I'll be waiting for the SWAM violin sale.

    @Littlewoodg these sound really good but do not have solo violin thanks.

    For anyone wanting a solo violin in BeatHawk this is what is in the packs I decided to purchase.
    Gipsy Jazzy pack is just violin loops no instruments.
    Balkans pack has one solo violin instrument that sustains.
    Middle East pack has three solo violin instruments that don't sustain and go from quite long to short.

  • Ah, @LoopyFruit ...still, if you don’t have Thumbjam you are missing a deep classic for $7.

  • edited April 7

    I was gonna say that Balkans had a violin, but you already got it :lol:

    So true ❤

  • Love the sales. Gamelan is now mine!

    String Ensemble pack I thought was just OK...no expression control is my issue with it. Mod Wheel control seems to move a filter cut off, but it doesn't sound like expressive playing.

  • I find the drum packs pretty need.
    Thought i might pick up some classical packs as im usually more into edm music. But it’s a bit of bummer that we don’t know what in the packs are playable instruments and what are just loops...

    Any tips in general on which one to pick up? 🙂
    (Recently bought: Asia, Trip Hop, world percussion)

    I have the Acoustic Drums pack - it's pretty good I think, depending if you need that for your style of music :)
    Although...I haven't used it in anything yet. I've only used Ruismaker.

    Each pack details what’s included, along with demo song...

    Presets are the playable instruments.

  • Still one of the best places to write songs and quickly.

  • @McM yea they sound good but already have the iap acoustic drums in NS2😄 Ruismaker is on of my go-tos as well.

    @0tolerance4silence Ah thank you! At least now i know how many playable ones are in it🙂

    Musical Toys is one I dig very much. It has acoustic and electronic toys

    Baroque is really nice too... The Classical Guitar, Harp and Celesta in it are tight, and the harpischord is great for cutting the midrange even in electronic genres (think Savant style stuff)

  • edited April 7

    @LoopyFruit
    The ones I listed are solo, except the runs I’m pretty sure (those that bought the pack correct me if I’m wrong) Perhaps the store sample doesn't include them. I think it’s called Ensemble because the pack itself is an ensemble of instruments, not all the patches themselves

    Quality wise for violins across all available violins on the store, there are many alternatives...! The expressiveness prize (without an added controller) has to go to ThumbJam. Multi sample with controller prize probably to CMP stuff

    For me, its a songwriting tool per @JohnnyGoodyear, and an incredibly broad (instrument, loop and clip resources, across I don’t know how many genres) one-stop Auv3.

  • Also a tip for all in doubt, the desktop packs has more demos. iOS contains less sounds than the desktop, but you can have a better idea of you may expect.

  • Is ravenscroft good?
