    Quality of VSL Horizon Mallets Library?

    I know this post may seem a bit silly, but is the VSL Mallet library good? I mean in terms of timbre, and expressive capabilities (velocities). The marimba and vibraphone are what interest me the most.

    I have \'VSL Saxs\', \'Glass & Stones\' and \'Overdrive\', and they are ALL top-notch libraries. I just want to be sure before laying down any cash on the library.

    Thanks for your input.

    The mallets library is fantastic. The vibraphone selection is especially good. And as for the Celesta! Harry Potter, eat your heart out. Scrummy! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Does anybody know if these are unique, or are derived from the full VSL set? If the latter, then the great celeste described, among others, would also be included in Opus 1 (which does not include vibes or marimba). I keep looking for (and finding) additional justification for buying Opus 1!

    The celeste is from the full Pro Edition set, as are all the mallets. the detail is sensational. Not just Harry Potter but also the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky can easily be done. We have them on sale.

    I don\'t have them for sale or provide customer service, but if anyone would like to just send me some money, I\'d be very grateful.
