I'm thinking it boils down to Kirk Hunter vs. VSL Solo Strings. I'm looking for a really nice cello sample. The attractive thing about VSL Solo Strings is, of course, the performance legato tool. But what I like about KH is, you can buy the solo cello by itself, which is a nice option.
I listened to demos for both. The KH cello demos sound... weird. I can't put my finger on it. The VSL cello seems to be crisper and have better "presence."
Opinions on this?
