Gigantic collection, a lot of potential

xJazzmanx, 22.01.2018
Application: Project and home studio.
Music: funk, jazz, hip-hop and soundtrack.

For some years I have used "only" Grooveagent and the little Halion Sonic, I use NI and IK Multimedia products for the accompaniment music and for the surfaces. Since I'm not a synth-tinker, I usually greet it when I get something nice to refine my music. (I myself play A. and E. guitars, and occasionally oud, mandolins and percussion), so I write as someone who does not understand much about synthesis, oscilators and "screwing"! I like to take a flute, play the sounds I need well I can on the master keyboard, correct the midi notes and ready.
NI Ultimate has a lot to offer, and the sounds are great, Absolute3 does! Things that I miss are here, and vice versa. (as an example I think of the Accordeon of A3)
If you find something nice for your music, you can use some parameters and effects in Sonic and change them (enough) and bend everything in Halion and change what you want. You can dive deeply and if you have any idea, adjust everything to your needs. The collection is gigantic and I assume that you can spend a lot of time playing around, so that, unfortunately, I forget to make music.
Grooveagent is great for many of my needs, also using Superior D. and of course the many drummers from NI. Everyone has their advantages and disadvantages. GA is very well suited in terms of modern sounds, flexible and easier to use than, for example, Battery, or it leads to faster results and it is inspired by many presets and intuitive operation.
With such a collection is certainly a lot of stuff that you rarely ever need, but you can get over it when you see how much you need and use. Although you can not speak directly about the price, but compared to other VSTi's, almost!
One thing that I find very bad is that the eLicenser always sticks to a glue. I use Cubase and StudioOne on a PC and a Notbook. All other plugins I can unrestricted on both benefits except those of Steinberg. Which is why I usually use Studio One projects without Steinberg to avoid being able to spontaneously stand without eLicenser! With Cubase I can still understand that, but with the VSTi's NOT!
