IK Multimedia Synths - $99 until May 31st!
The Miroslav Philharmonik is an exceptional value since you normally can’t get a great sounding orchestral library for this price. This Miroslav collection has a unique, darker sound that many prefer over some of the more “Hollywood” or “pop” style orchestral soft synths. Even if you only occasionally have need for orchestral sounds, it is worth getting it now for the price! If you use Sibelius or Finale, this is a great way to get more realistic playback without breaking the bank!
SampleTank 2.5 XL includes a wide range of sounds, and with over 6.5 GB of samples, there is something for everyone in this library. SampleTank is one of the easier sample based virtual instrument software programs to work with, so this is a great way to get started and expand your sound library. Perfect for Mixcraft, Sonar, Cubase, Pro Tools and virtually any other music program that supports VST or AU – including Sibelius and Finale!
If vintage sounds is more your style, Sonik Synth is worth looking at. You can’t go wrong – over 8 GB of great sounding samples for $99.99!
