I hate to bring this up because I know it gets discussed a lot, but I need help picking an orchestral library. I'm basically starting from scratch and I'll be using it not only for my own compositions and recordings, but (perhaps more importantly) for some musical theatre gigs that I occasionally do. GPO is great, but I think I want some better strings for the musical theatre stuff since that's usually what I'll cover. I can't find info on the new GOS so I don't know timeframe or cost.
I guess it basically boils down to this:
KHSO Emerald + a player (kontakt probably) or GPO + GOS whenever it comes out. I'd love to get them all, but my budget will only allow one set right now.
I need something that will play well live and will sound decent for musical theatre. I hope that's all clear. Thanks for your feedback.
