If you buy a cutting-edge sample library today, you will probably not have the RAM capacity (or Cpu-power for that matter) to use all of the library and all of your other libraries in one computer setup.
Now, when you look back at the early 90s, when the size of libraries were quite small compared to todays standard, they had the same problems that we encounter today... (Although they had to buy a $xxxx hardware sampler to load sometimes a single patch)
Does it not annoy you that despite the relatively small samplesizes in older libraries, you can still sometimes discover problems when you want to sound "Wagnerian" in your mockups? If you have 2 or 4 gigs it is still not enough...
I guess I just have to wait until 2015 before I buy a lib like VSL, and then maybe, just maybe I will be able to use it in only one computer setup...
Can't wait until 2 TerraBytes of RAM is standard in all PCs!!
Imagine if the tables turned (maybe it will someday, though I sincerely doubt so): Imagine if there were just too much RAM-capacity and the samplelib producers just couldn't make the libs big enough... Wouldn't that be cool?
