i need your advice... yet AGAIN...
i'm about to purchase some kind of ethnic instruments library (who would have guessed...), and my research has brought up two choices. first of all there's of course the allmighty RA - ethnic instruments, which is wihtout doubt one of, if not the, best librarys out now for ethnic stuff. but, on the other hand, it's pretty hard on the budget, which is why i felt the need to investigate a bit more on the matter in the first place, and have come up with ethno world 3 complete, which, judging from the audio-demos over at bestservice, isn't too shabby eihter.
so, in a nutshell, my question is:
has anybody around here had the chance to compare the two libs first hand over a prolonged period of time and can comment on how they match up against each other? amount of instruments sampled, overall playability (very important to me as i'm not THAT much of a "tweak your midi"-wiz), and quality of sound? i KNOW that forking out the money for RA should actually be a no-brainer, but still... it IS a bit costly, at least for the budget that i have right now.
any input will be, as always, much appreciated :-)
thanks and cu,
