    Yeah Guys,

    I thought the same thing x3, E.M.

    Anyway if it were me, I would politely ask which synth has the fresh sounds they prefer. Another pont. They could mean that they hear the same patch often, meaning “Outdated”. Perhaps you can tweak your favorite patches with some effects. Many times, some synths have too much effects on one patch and you can adjust the parameters. You may also double the lead, pad, etc, using two patches at the same time.

    Funny. When Stranger Things was hot, many libs were using that show for examples on their briefs. All 80’s analogue synths. Go figure.

    LOLOL!! I got put on that mailing list when I first joined MLR.

    Got sent a “Request” and heard the examples they sent me.

    I sent in a couple of things, and got asked to revise the drums. Got a “Green Light”. But after looking into them, and their small Market-share. It just didn’t seem like a move for me.

    Great to do research, and see who’s really making moves. Wish I would have been avidly using the “Access Music Libraries” and doing more research when I first got into this forum. “I found out late about a couple Cemeteries posing as viable Music Outlets”…

    Thanks for the responses

    @NY Composer – in this case by “outdated” they meant “80s or 90s sounding”, as they told me this directly, including the brief where they sent 80s sounding synths as reference tracks 🙂

    I have found this particular library seems to really like shimmer reverb/crystal delay type sounds (in my opinion this sounds more outdated than 80s analog synths – to each his own I guess…)

    I have worked with E.M. for years….
    Great library….. tons of placements.
    And YES I have done up to 12 revisions on some tracks.. usually 3 – 5
    But in the end they all sounded much better.

    Haha, like many here E.M. also immediately came to mind! But usually mine got greenlit after the first revision only occasionally I had to do a second and maybe a 3rd revision. They have gotten me some OK placements over the years though.

    (Btw, I’m a different Tim than the one above me!)

    If we’re talking about the same library, I once got asked to change _all_ of the major chords in a future bass track to minor chords because the track wasn’t sounding dark enough. When that wasn’t enough, it was suggested: “Hmm, we might have to make them diminished chords then”.

    And we have winner, can’t beat that !!!!
