Or how about that Roland Rosin thing Rob Elliot put under his VSL strings that worked so well (ROLAND?)
The only saving grace - if we listen to demos for some of the older out of favor libraries, we discover that it\'s all about composition, arrangement, and know-how (plus some here and there custom tweaking of vanilla out-of-the-box) and less about the library. But it\'s easier and more fun to spend hours discovering, researchng, and buying new samples as opposed to the lonely and tedious focus on the composition and arrangement.
