Has anybody heard any rumblings of an expansion to the bundled Vienna Giga Symphony? Something that would take the 'basic' orchestra to the next level and for less than $500 seems ideal to me? Just a thought...
I have it from a reliable source (nameless) that VSL is planning on a 'GPO' type of thing which is supposed to be priced comparably. This would however, be something which would use Kontakt programming instead of sampled articulations, so it seems VSL is going the budget orchestra route.
I don't think GS3 is popular enough at this point in terms of sales to be an incentive to any sample developers to do what you suggest.
They already include something along those lines in Giga3.
Yeah, I upgraded from GS3 Solo to Orchestra because I'm a cheapskate bastard who thought I'd get some great bundled VSL sounds for nothing. Well, actually, the 24 bit samples are quite good- very clear and detailed. But, as I've mentioned 5 million times before, the demo performance legato patches are just stunning. I guess that was VSL's plan- to lure us in with colossal sounds from their main library...buggers.
