After a lot of thinking, I have decided to get either GPO or EWQLSO Silver. My current libraries are "Symphony of Voices" and "Advanced Orchestra", which I use with my XV-5080.
I just resently bought the AO library and think it would be a shame if I would have to put it aside because of a new and better sounding soft-library. It may sound weird but I won't get satisfied knowing that I have wasted money on a new library. Therefore it is important to me that either GPO or EWQLSO Silver would blend well with the old AO. AO has got many articulations and "phrase" samples that the two above-mentioned does not have, like Glissandos and natural crescendos and up-and-down glides on the French horns. Many of the sounds are good I think, but the strings are the weakest link in the chain.
I would appreciate if YOU, the people who own either GPO or EWQLSO Silver could tell me your opinion about the different libraries. If you also own AO, how does it blend with them? Ease of use is also important!
I also would like to know if my current sequencer Cakewalk Pro 8.0 is not compatible with the softlibraries. Would I have to buy a new VST-sequencer to run GPO or EWQLSO Silver?
I'm composing film-score/game-score influensed music, by the way!
