    EW2 has a lot of Chinese and Middle Eastern instruments, with multisamples and phrases. For sure the phrases are unique to the lib, but there will be some duplication of the mults with RA, though the timbres will be different. I found EW2 useful, more so than 1.

    EW2 has some instruments not present in RA. But with any ethnic instrument library, you have to consider that there are SO many ways to not only record, but get sound out of the instruments. Both RA and EW2 have an oud, but they certainly don't sound the same, nor do either sound like the oud from Hans Zimmer Guitars 2

    It depends on the kind of instruments you want to use. EW2 has some great wind instruments that are less known (Bawu, Hulusi, Shenai), the same for strings (Morin Khuur, Cora, Dra-Ngen) and some great percussion (bass Cajon, bass Udu, Bendir), with lots of low & high end.

    I got WorldWinds a couple of years ago. I use it some, but I'm not impressed with it.
