Topic: Which is more realistic: VSL or Sonic Implants strings?

    Which is more realistic: VSL or Sonic Implants strings?

    I have a couple demo patches from both libraries that came with GS3. On the surface, I would have to say I prefer the Sonic Implants. Man, the sounds are gorgeous. I'm looking for a great string library and I know that VSL has great performance tools that enhance the playability of their strings (without it they don't sound as nice as the SI).

    Does anyone out there use one over the other, or both?

    Let me predict how this thread will turn out. You're going to get a bunch of people saying things like this:
    "This has been debated before"
    "You can't say which is more realistic, its all so subjective"
    "VSL has its strengths and SI has its strengths"
    "SI is easier to use out of the box, whereas VSL takes more work, but ultimately can bring about more realism"
    "You're comparing apples to oranges"
    "SI is more Hollywood, VSL is more Classical"
    "SI is better for chamber music,"
    And then there's always one guy who will say, "I don't like the way SI sounds".
    And then some one will mention something about VSL's lack of reverb and it will start an argument between EWQLSO users and VSL users, and the argument will only end when some one makes a "GPO or Silver?" thread and it moves over there.
    On page 3, Lux will point out that I forgot to mention some one recommending that dcoscina "buy both".

    You can't really say which is more realistic; it's all so subjective.

    VSL has its strengths and SI has its strengths.

    Seriously though... SI is easier to use out of the box, whereas VSL takes more work, but ultimately can bring about more realism
