I've listened to the demos and read pretty much everything I've found about these libraries on developer websites, NS and other forums and Sound on Sound but making direct comparisons is hard without using the real products. All "product X is nice but I stopped using it when I got Y" type of comments would be helpful. I haven't used or tried any of the libraries in question.
1. I can get Percussive Adventures 2 with a discount. Will I have use for that if I get the Stylus RMX and propably the Metamorphosis expander?
2. I need a vibraphone with great motor on sound. Should I get the Artvista Cool Vibes or VSL Mallets? I'm after a jazzy and playable feel.
3. I'm tempted by the Piano Magic group buy price but I have several piano libraries like the Galaxy Steinway 5.1 and Vintaudio C7. Is there something superior in the Piano Magic bundle or will I do fine without it?
4. I need a fat upright bass in a library that also has electric basses. Which has better upright, Trilogy or Majestic?
Thanks for any comments. There is no substitute for first hand experience and I'm grateful if you share some of yours.
