The first release of the Virtuoso Series Pro Concert Strings will start tomorrow, or early Tuesday for EXS24. Kontakt 2.2 SOON to follow. We're meeting about the final pricing early Monday morning. The Concert Strings alone are 20 GB, which is the total size of Emerald. And once again, those of you who already own Emerald (no matter where you purchased it) are entitled to discount rates...we're working on that! )
Geronimo: There will be, in the future, an option to pick up the full blown total Virtuoso Series Pro package which will include Emerald (if one does not already have Emerald). However, that is still a ways away in development.
Thanks glad you liked it! This has suddenly become a huge theme and variations for orchestra which I will sequence and post when I get the chance. I got a flurry of inspiration last night and started sketching rapidly... It gets into some pretty wild contrapuntal brass fanfares towards the middle.
Well, looking at the site the lite versions seem to offer best value. Although if they are only missing mute and FX sounds can that really explain the vast difference in the size of the libraries? (Actually I prefer libs with a modest footprint). The other question of course is once they are all available will the concert, studio and solo strings be packaged together? (for a deal)
