    VSL at its best

    Wow! Cool stuff that no other sample library can do.
    I like the soundstage too. Awesome.

    Kuno is a man (I presume a man) after my own heart. From what I\'ve heard so far, Schmid is carrying on something of the tradition of Jazz-orchestral fusion much beloved by guys like Jerry Fielding, Claus Ogerman and Michel Legrand. Beautiful, sexy, sound, that. Very purely dramatic too.

    Kuno, if you\'re monitoring, I hope you get a ton of work!

    Whoa! It\'s like diving into an ocean of samples! VSL must be a composer\'s paradise! I can\'t wait to have all the dough to afford \'em high-end libs!

    Wonderful music indeed! Kuno is trully gifted!

    No doubt about it. Kuno is great! In fact, he\'s so good that a few shortcomings are exposed.
    Listening to \"Ways of Truth\" I noticed a couple of things. I\'m really impressed with the strings and clarinet. I don\'t think it gets any better than this. The same goes for other instruments like the flute and solo French horn. However, it\'s the oboe and bassoon I\'m less impressed with. The VSL oboe is absolutely not suited for giving a dreamy lyrical expression. Listening to Kuno\'s piece made me aware of that again. VSL is planning to release a more typical oboe but, in my opinion, that should\'ve happened before they made Opus 1.
    This time the bassoon had the same effect on me. Every note has a slightly accentuated attack (just like the oboe) which tells me the articulation Kuno has choses might not be the best choice for this particular type of music, or maybe, a better suited bassoon was not at hand. I\'m sure for other styles this bassoon could very well be perfect.
    Of course, this has nothing to do with Kuno\'s quality as a composer and performer, which are first-rate, to say the least.

    The oboe is another matter. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
