Kirk Hunter Virtuoso series strings - which format to choose?
Hey ya all!
Have not been around on this forum for quite a while now and I came across a topic saying that Kirk Hunter's having a "garage-sale".
I've heard that the virtuoso series strings have a pretty "brutal" or aggressive sound, which is just what I look for, and $59 for a complete stringlibrary ain't that bad either...
Now my question is, I use Kontakt 2 to playback sample libs, so, what format would serve me best and most important, which format will make the best translation into Kontakt?
I would guess that from my point of view it stands between the Giga- or Roland-format.
I should therefore mention that I have an old XV-5080 that I sometimes use to ease my computers cpu (got quite a few old roland libs) . The only thing is, I have bad experience with roland translation into kontakt. Would a program like chickensys or cdextract (was it?) help me there and do a better job than Kontakts 2's translating? I've been thinking of buying a translator program for a while now. I want to use my old roland libs in my computer-setup...
