    From spectrasonics right? Is it quality stuff? Is it available in GIGA?

    Apparently the audio version is just phrases and the full akai/roland and emu version which is almost four times the price is the complete library and has multisamples.

    Is the full library really worth getting over the smaller cd audio version?

    Any point in getting Ethno World 1 & 2 or would one of them (number 2 I guess) suffice?

    Personally, I really like Best of Bolder - not for the instruments, which tend to be somewhat flat (depth, not pitch) and one-dimensional, coming from Akai roots. But the Garnular stuff is superb, and some nice unusual stuff is included - my favorite is the Yamaha piano played by guitar pick...

    Ethnoworld 2 has lots of useable phrases as well as multisamples, there are also some English libraries that I found quite usable, and quite inexpensive (although again, limited velocity layers tend to make the samples a bit one-dimensional, some of them still are very usable. These are Exotic Instruments and Exotic Winds from Sounds-UK. I got them on eBay new for under $25 each including shipping, 2 CDs each - had to be converted, but well worth it, IMHO.
    It's all about the music - really. I keep telling myself that...

    Ok... thanks

    in regards to Ethno world... is ethno world 2 a bigger better version of the first, or an extention... making both liberaries important?

    I just received Ethno World 2 yesterday, and it sounds really great. I have some of the original instruments here at home (Bendir, Kena, Sheng, Balafon, Log Drum, Morrocan Conga, Ocarina, Melodica) and their resemblance is very good. I like some of the samples even better than the instruments :-) I think EW2 can be considered a good succesor.
