In the world of sampling as I understand it, quantity \"could\" mean quality. I mean we are talking sheer numbers here., if not why not just sit with the staff paper and write music? some of the greatest music was written that way anyways.
Lets go back 20-30 years when you has a 64Kb 80386 processors... will you talk about Giga libraries then? More detailed sampling means larger files,...this of course assuming other things are taken care of, such as the quality of the performers and the recording gear....and this is a no brainer for both GOS and SI, as certainly both these use exceptional techniques.
