this is my 1st post here.. so be patience with me if i'm asking anything stupid.
My studio manager is planning to update our sample library. Currently, composers here just use Hardware sound moudules(XV5080, Motif...). The Current composer was suggesting to get the VSL Cube but i was looking at the EatWest Bundles
consist of EWQL Gold Pro, EWQL Rare Instrument, EWQL Symphonic orchestra
just because this provides more sounds for that budget(under 2500USD)
To work with VSL, we have Halion 2 which i don't know wether halion can do it or do we have to update to Halion 3(which is recomended according to the VSL site). But with the East West Bundle ... they come with their own sample player. .
MY main concern is, wether the EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold if good enough compare to VSL Cube.
conclusion for me is i'm a lot looking at the East West path.
It'll be nice if u guys can gimme some tips/opinions on my decision making here.
