From what I understand, with the release of Hollywood Choirs on November 30th.

Well, crap. Now I need a Kontrol Keyboard. Great work, EastWest. I'm going to have to rob several banks.

No no - works fine with any midi keyboard. Save your money, unless you own a lot of NI libraries. It's just made compatible with Kontrol keyboard, meaning the keyboard shows colors or something like that.

Wonderful to see compatibility with Kontrol S keyboards (and VIP 3).

I know, I know. It's just that I really love the concept of the NI keyboard and held off for two reasons. It's bloody expensive - and I mostly use PLAY. So I thought: "Huh, if it doesn't show me colours in PLAY, I don't need it." Now Gear Acquisition Syndrome is kicking in because oh my god, it shows colours with PLAY, aaaaaah.

But I imagine play 6 will just be the next version for all instruments, not merely for this instrument only ? I bet they will benefit from it as well

Admin, question about PLAY 6 and the 29.99.
I'm switching to a master/slave setup at the end of this month. My master has ComposersCloud X (including Choirs), my slave has my "old" iLok with my Diamond licenses. Does this mean I will have to pay to use PLAY 6 on both computers? If I don't pay, only my master can use PLAY 6?

I've read the Hollywood Choir's manual and there is some info in there about Play 6. It seems that the only major improvement and it is something that's going to be extremely helpful is the addition of a browser with info tags of each patches. I hope they'll have included technical info about the actual articulations. Like what CC does what as some articulations do not all respond the same way. For some CC1 is crossfade and others, CC1 is modulation and CC11 is crossfade. I hope it'll be included in the info tabs. I hope they made all of this clear. I've been working with there libraries for years now and have read the manuals a few times but I still get confused on some of there abbreviations.
