I also posed this on the Kontakt board. It seems to my ears that GS3 plays these samples cleaner and fuller than Kontakt. Why would that be. As a side note, my GS3 is installed on my Dell Laptop playing through a Tascam US-122 (at 24 bits) while Kontakt is installed on my Dell Desktop playing through an AUdiophile 24/96.
Anyone else notice the difference in the quality of sounds? Reason is, I only have demo patches for the SAM Solo Sessions that came with GS3 and would like to buy the full library but I'm hesitating over which platform I should get it for. Kontakt is a but cheaper to purchase but the sound quality also sounds inferior to GS3.
