Gee, that demo just sounds awful.
There are certainly good ideas to be found in the fundamental basis of this library; realtime divisi and separate desks allow for indefinite variation between performances, but unfortunately as has just been demonstrated, these things simply don't amount to a great sounding string library. The tone colour captured here is far from being a homage to the lush tone produced by a real string performance, or indeed that found in any other commercially available sample library.
In a word, Disappointing. (note the capital D)
I'm not a fan of the strings overall tone, but I find the performance rather realistic, especially the runs. The strings are a bit harsh at some place but it could be due to a mixing issue.
Still a bit expensive
Hi J. C.,
I think most of it sounds quite realistic. At the start, the transitions between staccati and legati sound less convincing than the rest to a listener.
am I having deja vu or there was post like this already, and
topic starter got banned?
i'm not impressed....

i'm not impressed...., but I know this is a first Demo and I know their impatience to post finally something.
But, my tipp to any developer: The first Demo is the most important, and should be as good as no different one!

So far, DVZ seems to be more like a nice computer collection !
This page would be a better place to look for a finished product than the unmixed, live mp3 demonstration of the single track on the frontpage, as the final mixed track is there along with is some information about it (it sounds better at 192kHz, and mixed with the internal hueristicsfacilities in the package, than the live mp3 track): http://www.audioimpressions.com/Supp...s/default.aspx
