It seems EMU has finally released the true results of their big sampling sessions with the Seattle Symph a few years ago.
10 gigs, two mic positions and what sounds like quite complex bowings and alternating samples. Even the wind instruments have alternating samples. There is a version of disk streaming that in my experience works pretty well.
There are many key-switched patches too.
It seems as though a greater attempt has been made to lessen the 'ol machine-gun effect in the whole library.
I own Proteus X so $329.00 for all that is pretty good sounding!
One of the true pioneers of synthesis and sampling. Emu was a big part of my earlier days. I remember asking my dad for $7,000 Canadian dollars to buy an Emulator 2! Times have changed. I wish them all the best!
PS Nexus Didn't tou own the original Virtuoso 2000 Orch module? Can't believe they have that soundset for 69 bucks. (of course it can't compare to the stuff today but you can barely get a tank full of gas for that these days!)
