I wonder if it's the same VSL library that comes with GS3...
I would guess very similar.
From the NI website: 01 - VSL Kontakt Orchestra
A complete instrument set of an orchestra with 30 instruments, including special legato and repetition instruments, using the KONTAKT Script Processor, 7.5 GB
The VSL content in GS3 Orchestra has 20 .gig files and about 6 GB of samples.
I was interested in Kontakt2 simply as a good improvement to the sampler, which I've been using more and more lately. I wasn't even particularly looking at the sample library, but this morning I thought I would take a peek at the list and I have to say it sounds pretty exciting indeed!!!
It appears that Komplete2 will have been a very worthwhile investment... given that I've already gotten Battery2 and Absynth3 via that route.
Between HALion3.1 and Kontakt2 (when it emerges as a stable product), I don't have any reason to want for a sampler.
Speaking of HALion3, has anyone heard or read anything about changes to Kontakt authorization, specifically regarding a dongle? I haven't heard anything, but then again I don't want to be surprised like I was when I indirectly found out about dongles in HAL3 and Samplitude 8!
