I've had this library for a month and you know what? It's actually pretty damn good. The oboe is quite beautiful. The solo strings have some nice bite and the brass aren't too shabby. For $250 (I upgraded from HALion String Edition 1) this is a dynamite value. 27 gigs of 24 bit and 16 bit samples. The only downside is that I cannot play the sounds on my Intel Mac (yet), so I have to slave my PC to my iMac to record everything. Not a big deal since I have things connected by SPDIF so it's all digital. Out from my Delta 24/96 into my MOTU UltraLite (that sound card rocks BTW).
Anyhow, I don't quite understand why people dislike this library but perhaps it's because the demos aren't as flattering as actually working with the sounds. like I said, I'll post some of my own stuff so you guys can make up your own minds.
