There's been quite a few posts from new members looking to buy the "right" library and I keep seeing that EWQLSO is quite often referred to as having the "Hollywood Sound" and that VSL has the "detail".
I'm still not quite sure what the"Hollywood Sound " is but to me it's more in the orchestration, composition and the specific reverb and equalisation that is added in the film mix to make the sonic experience in a picture theatre more enjoyable. But this topic has been well and truly been argued before.
When I recently set about trying to decide whether to buy VSL or EWQLSO, I found I didn't have the range of demos to help me choose.
Often the observation is the VSL has the detail and QLSO is for the "Hollywood" sound. I ended up with both EWQLSO Gold and VSL Pro (minus the performance set) and I like both.
In my humble opinion I think the EWQLSO has great detail so I've posted a classical piece by Bruckner for those interested. It might help some members who haven't bought a sample library yet to see this library in a different light (well I hope I do it justice).
And I'm not trying to say this library is better than VSL or any other. Just hope it helps some members look at it with different ears. Mind you, you have to like Bruckner.
