Practical question:
How do you route the Time Orchestra patches in your template? I mean to which (sub)stems?
I always stem like groups (strings high, strings low, brass high, etc). You can still do this if you load the specific instruments. I also have an "orch" stem for ensemble patches that I cannot seperate. Is this what you are asking?

Actually I meant just the patches under the "01. Time Orchestra" folder (and 02. Altered Time). I should have been more specific.

In general they are pads but still organic/orchestral in nature. I have never thought of "orch" stem as I don't have any other libraries with patches that combine different instrument groups.

Wondering what would be the best bet as to when to buy this. I see NI is having a sale again. People thought the former sale was a one time thing - and it appears it isn't.
So the sale now has Time MACRO, a year after it's out, for 50%. Also ARK 4 for 50% off - but when bundled together with another ark it's 63% off.
This makes me wonder whether in a year's time we'll see another OT/NI sale, offering Time Macro & Micro for 63% off, making it worthwhile to wait. But then again they might not, and now is the best price available.

It’s easy. If you don’t need it now, and you can wait a year to see if it’s lower, you certainly don’t need to rush to buy it.

Hi folks,

a few people have reached out because of crackling loops in the TM patches, so I thought I'd just post here what I replied via email :)

The TM patches use Kontakt's Time Machine algorithm.
They are intended to be used when you need to adjust the sample length and should only be used when you actually need that functionality.
One one the drawbacks of these patches is that Kontakt has a fair bit of Time Machine issues, including sometimes messing up the sound output. Unfortunately Kontakt does not allow crossfades when TM is used, which is what leads to those clicks and pops. You will find that the Single Articulation patches do not have clicking loops.

See http://helpdesk.orchestraltools.com/ug_time_machine_enabled_patches.html

We hope NI will solve these (and other) issues in due course, but until then we prefer to provide TM patches for situations where their functionality is needed and live with the clicking loops, as in most cases, you can simply use the regular Single Articulation patches - and it rarely makes sense to use the TM patches for looping articulations anyway.

thank you, Tobias.

is there a possibility to use Time Micro in your very own Sample Player?

Kind regards from Switzerland,

FWIW, here's a cue I posted on another thread a few days ago, entirely made with Time Micro.
This is no big orchestration, but I think it shows the product quite well.

This cue uses all available multi instruments + 3 patches and a fair amount of articulations (& keyswitches) for each instrument.
No EQ or any other FX were used, only a bit of EQ/limiting on the bus master.

This library is fantastic and with a bit of work, it can also cover more than it seems in the first place (for example, clockwork articulations can be used a marcato, etc).



Below the screenshot of the LPX session (notice the keyswitches on both ends of the scale).
