I have Keyscape, and the details in this lib are growing on me (despite the girth!). I am running on a ‘skull canyon’ (i7, 32g, 2 - 1TB SSDs). Operation seems pretty smooth and glitch free so far.
Big sample sets (like the C7) typically take around 10 secs to fully load … but Spectrasonics have done something quite interesting in their sample loading scheme. They seem to load enough of the sample set to create a ‘preview’ within the first second or so. This allows you to play some of the instrument while the complete set of samples is still loading.
Other sample sets don’t take as long to load. Typical load times are 5-10 seconds, but this ‘preview’ is quite usable nearly instantly.
The EPs are gorgeous, and give me a huge perception that I’m sitting in front of the real-deal when I close my eyes.
The layers (called ‘duos’) also sound like a well blended recording.
The thing that Keyscape seems to lack (in comparison to Omnisphere) is the ability to manage duos (ie Create new ones, change existing ones, …) and the ability to change the configuration of effects that are on each patch. I have yet to explore the Keyscape libs in Omnisphere though.
So far, I’m diggin’ Keyscape!
