Re: Plastique, Kingpin: light versions for exs|24
surely it can't be that difficult to make a light version of the kits yourself...
probably not difficult, but certainly tedious since to do this, I would need to (1) purchase the full product, then (2) strip it down to a Logic's exs|24 compatible form...
I naively thought that purchasing the light version directly would spare me the dull work!
most of the Kontakt specific scripting for Kingpin has more to do with the UI than anything to do with the drum samples themselves...
at least, that's what I understood when I read the description pages: separate volume and panning controls for individual drums, hi-hat, ride, overhead mics, and room mics
but, hey: isn't this absolutely redundant?
it's something that's already available
in my DAW — provided the kits are designed as multiple-output instruments
and no need to select from those fancy view | preset | compress | sensitivity
- do we really need another level of the very same controls and settings?
- probably not — as far as the Grandioso and Buckshot kits are valid proofs of the concept!
so why not provide a light version of Plastique and Kingpin?
