The crossover points on the modwheel in general feel much bumpier. We'll see if that gets better as I use the library...
I would increase the number of voices in Kontakt first, because the TM patches can increase the number of voices massively, that sounded strange at first.

These are not the Time Machine patches. Just the ordinary ones under Time Orchestra and Altered Time. But they combine patches and use Kontakt to do some processing. And in Time Macro these combinations are very smooth as you move the modwheel but in Time Micro some of them are not as smooth. They may work perfectly fine once I get the hang of them but they are not, on the whole, as straightforward as those in Time Macro.

Came back to the download this morning and sure enough, Connect crashed. Looked like it had completed though, so I tried to proceed anyway, but Kontakt couldn't find some of the samples when I tried to load the spiccato high string ensemble patch. Didn't have time to try other patches yet. Excited to get it working soon...

Continuata is definitely a piece of trash. 36% after 24 hours of download and numerous crashing. I have to babysit it. As I said earlier, I'll be done on wednesday.

Dumb question, is there a user guide specifically for Time Micro? My Documentation folder only has the licensing document and a link to the OT doc page, where it basically says "all libraries are essentially the same so there are no collection specific manuals". I'm hoping the manual would answer an equally dumb question, which is regarding the purpose of the TM Patches (which seem similar to their equivalent instruments, but the loops are abrupt / pop).

These aren't really much like the Arks. No legatos, few shorts, more atmospheric. Like Time Macro, it is similar to an EVO, but it's very much it's own thing.

more so i was asking if Micro would compliment the Arks.

blend well?

and with so many EVOs in my kit, is this a stand out?

Thoughts?

Yes, I think they blend well with the Arks (and other non-OT libraries), and for me they add something quite different from the EVOs, though it's a similar textural, coloristic emphasis. I like both EVOs and the Time series, but they each require their own approach.

Hi Chris, you own Ark 4, too, right? Do you have any thoughts about whether Time Micro would work well with it? I'm imagining that actually orchestrating the two together (instead of just layering) may work really well because of the chamber sized patches in both.

I don't own Ark 4... yet. Looking for an excuse, though.
Hi Shawn, yes, I think they could work really well together. Imagine creating a pad with Micro and playing one of those orchestrated combos from Ark 4...

:blush: Hi Chris ! Would be super cool if you have similar suggestions using ARK 1 ….. Currently auditioning newly installed TMicro, along with TMacro .... and starting thru ARK 1 choices … naively :geek:

I always scratch my head over these types of comments (its starting to hurt now....note to self - try other spot). Continuata always works like a charm for me. Extremely fast and never a crash. So is it possible the problems you're experiencing may be elsewhere? And I've downloaded a few libraries.

I'm gonna chime in and say Continua is crashing on me as well. I usally have no problem with it but I'm getting the beach ball of death about every hour or so and have to reset it.

Ooo, that might be a trickier one. Considering one is a textural quiet library, where the other is all out bombastic. I’m thinking a Micro patch with mod wheel up + deep sustains in Ark 1 would sound great.

Continuata Connect is excruciatingly painful. It just simply cannot install the product. It crashes. It redownloads files. I have tried a dozen times and it's just not working. I finally have all of the files I believe but it cannot install them without crashing.

I hope OT is moving to something else soon. If not then I hope they can increase speeds for the manual links and provide instructions for a manual installation (100% sans Connect)
