VSL vs. EWQL-SO?
I'm quite sure I'm not the first person here to ask this, but I did a few searches and couldn't find a good thread on this.
I know that no library can be all things to all people, and I know that it largely depends on what your needs and purposes are, but could some knowledgeable people experienced with both libraries weigh in on a comparison?
What can you do with one that you can't do as well with the other? What advantages does one have over the other?
I know that EWQL Platinum gives you multiple mic positions and I think that VSL does not. I think with VSL, you'll have to use convolution to put your orchestra in whatever room you want. But I think that VSL gives you more instrument combinations and/or more articulations, and I don't think that EWQL has performance control software like that found in VSL.
I'm also not terribly familiar with the comparitive differences between the EXS sampler that I would use with the VSL and the Kompakt/Kontakt software that I would need to use with EWQL. Plus which, if I am to use the EXS sampler, I'll need to switch to Logic from DP, and I don't know if this is good or bad.
Please help. It's a good deal of money I'm going to spend, either way, and I need to make the most informed decision.
