I\'m buying a bunch of new VST instruments after selling off all of my old hardware. It blows me away at the size of some the libraries out there. Remember when Roland crammed, drums, strings, bass, guitars, synths, choirs, etc, etc, into 16 megs? Now I see DFH Superior (drums only) 35 gigabytes, the new Scarbee drum library has 2 gigs for the hi-hats alone!!!! Where the heck do you guys put this stuff? I just bought a new computer with a 120 gigabyte HD for my sample libaries. I thought this was reasonable until I started researching some of these new libraries. I read a review about VSLO a while ago that basically said you couldn\'t play one of the mega-articulated sound sets because there wasn\'t a machine that was capable of doing it! Yowsa! When you buy a Korg Triton you never load up a patch and hope to heck the thing will play it back. It\'s funny \'cause I thought I\'d streamline my studio, 1 controller and 1 computer. Are we just trading rack mount synths for rack mount computers?
On the other side of the coin these libraries are so compelling, one more hard drive wouldn\'t now would it? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] (Come on honey just a little stick of ram, another 240 gig HD, I\'m hurtin\' real bad!)
All the best,
