These libraries are both $1000. I really want to get a great start in a rounded out library, but once I listened to Maarten\'s great demo on Opus 1, I was thrown back, thinking again what\'s the right choice. I\'m sure Nick Phoenix would be reading this going \"Oh my God, a possible sale, and people could influence him another way!\" I LOVE QLSO\'s upgrade plan, and the 24-bit multi-channel mic\'s (Platinum), and most importantly, I can make a better sound stage. Opus 1 is standard 16-bit, and I don\'t think it has natural sound stage reverb. Therefore I\'d have to be a engineering genious to figure out how to make the concert hall reverb sound like Maarten\'s demo. I bet I\'d get a \"wall of sound\" again using Opus 1, unless there are things I don\'t know about to avoid this. I\'ll be having Sonar 3 Producer with the Lexicon reverb plugin, but would that help any on Opus 1? On QLSO Gold Edition, the reverb is natural, and you don\'t need software plugins. Both libraries sound extremely expressive and realistic.
Anyone, please give you opinions, thoughts, experiences on this, cause this a big purchase for me! God knows I\'ll own both one day. Thanks!
