Time for a new discussion topic. Do you guys feel like developers are getting carried away with the size of sample libraries. Don\'t get me wrong, I like to get a big bang for my buck as much as everyone else, but is more always better?
DFH and Scarbee have raised the bar on the size of drum sample libraries into the tens of gigs....that is a lot of samples, but are they all necessary?
Also (and I\'m not pointing any fingers here) are any of these developers inflating the size of their libraries with unnecessary layers and overlong sample tails?
VSL and QLSO are so huge that a new hard drive (or two) should be factored in the total cost of the library.
I guess the question that I am raising is...are we becoming overly influenced by the size of a library and are we being conditioned to not take smaller libraries as seriously?
Let\'s not forget that a smaller and leaner library is potentially less tasking on our systems and is bound to give a better performance. Are the new offerings overly bloated?
As much as we\'re always asking for options, do we ultimately resort to our usual favorite instruments and essentially ignore the vast majority of choices available in those mega libraries?
I\'m just curious about people\'s thoughts.
