Just wondering - is KHSO Ruby ever going to be released ? As a happy owner of his Emerald Library for K2, I'm chomping at the bit to get the "whole enchilada" of Ruby. AFAIC, Ruby will make Emerald everything I wish it was now....
Some of what's taking so long (is it really THAT long?) is that we are contemplating recording more new solo strings, and also going through the vast amount of already recorded material to add all kinds of layers to Emerald. But we have to make sure it all stays consistent with the same "feel". Also, programming the legatoLive and IntervaLive instruments across the symphonic, chamber and solo palettes takes quite some time.
However, since it's coming along in stages, we MIGHT take into consideration the idea of releasing it in parts as they get done if folks REALLY want that option. For example, the LegatoLive and IntervalLive strings are coming along first....

More solo instruments? Bravo! I feel that building small sections out of solos is a way to achieve great sound, and it opens the door to smaller pieces, divisi (auto divisi of solo instruments would be VERY nice), and--oh, I have to go to work!
I bought your Solo Strings a few months ago and I am very happy with them.
However, if you are comtemplating on recording more new solo strings can I suggest a few strongly needed articulations like Sul Ponticello(with & without tremolo), Sul Tasto, Jete & Harmonic Gliss. If I could only pick one it would be various Sul Ponticello articulations.
I hope some time will also be spend on some proper documentation. For me that was the ONLY really low point of Emerald. I like using it, but the inadequate documentation is pulling the quality of the whole product down.
