    Smile "Can't live without" libraries

    Hey all, new to the forums here (very cool BTW) and am currently putting together a Giga-rig. I'm very interested to know what some of your absolute favorite libraries are and why- regardless of category (Strings, loops, rhythm, whatever). I hope it's fun!

    Here goes... (unsorted):

    Garritan Orchestral Strings - need I really explain this?

    SAM Brass Libraries (all of them) - great sound and sensible programming, plus a great bang for the buck

    London Orchestral Percussion (Big Fish) - great flexibility and choice, also features some instruments usually not found on "generic" libraries (thunder sheets, anyone?)

    Heart of Africa (Spectrasonics) - a bit dated, but still a favourite for adding That Ethno Touch(tm). The percussion samples are nothing short of amazing.

    Early Patches (Dausenkunz) - this one's a bit special. It's by a rather obsessed (in a positive sense) guy who builds medieval and renaissance instruments. Like the HOA, it's a bit dated, so most of the samples have rather short loops, but the recording quality is exceptional and, most importantly, it's really fun to use this library.

    Well, those are my favourites anyway...

    HTH + HAND,
    jan
