What are you talking about? Of course he's never used it, it hasn't even been released. He directed much of its creation though.



Spitfire Audio are delighted and honoured to present a series of products produced by Hans Zimmer and his diamond class team of grammy winning engineers, musicians and technicians. Where Hans Zimmer's style approach to sonic creation is often copied or emulated we're proud to present to the world at large HZ's definitive take on his trailblazing approach to cinematic percussion production. Herein lies not an emulation or synthesis of his approach, but a recreation. The same studio, musicians, instruments, signal chain and talented engineers, sitting alongside a decade of experience, innovation and refinement overseen in every detail by Hans himself. The same excrutiating attention to detail, perfection but most importantly the endless choice for tweakability and customisation you'd expect of the greatest of sound-smiths.
They wouldn't use his name like this, and he wouldn't allow it, if it was "nothing to do with him".

What a strange post...

that's cool. I finally bought an XV-5080 a year ago and I'm using it every so often. Do you have any SRX cards in it? I was thinking about getting the complete orchestra exp just so I can have a reliable place to look for certain sounds. Are you one of the guys who's controlling the module through your computer? I've been trying to figure that out with midiquest or something like that...

Tons of great Akai and gigasampler discs out there. I find Kontakt conversion more than adequate to breathe new life into some great old sounds. kfhkh

Always looking for pianos...

Both of these can be used with the free Kotakt player. I use Amplitube with Electri6ity.
