I currently have GPO and really like it's ease of use, but I've been contemplating getting another library such as East West Symphonic Orchestra Gold Bundle. I don't really write much classical music, but more pop and electronica that have strings. I tried out a EWSO Platinum demo (only came with the solo violin I think) and side by side, GPO definitely sounded more "classical", but I don't know if EWSO sounded right either (although I don't know how to program it properly).
I really like the strings at the opening of "Lay Lady Lay" by Magnet (www.myspace.com/magnet) in case anybody can suggest a library that may give me that type of sound?
Thanks for the help!
