Okay ladies and gents- here it is! If you had one DAW and one library to bring to a desert island (along with a power generator and computer) which one would it be?
This is a tough decision for me as I have quite a few libs, mostly orchestral. If I was stuck with just one, which one would it be? same goes for DAWS. I have Logic 8 Studio, Cubase 4.1, DP 5.12, and for PC Sonar 7. Okay, [breathing heavily] here goes:
DAW: Logic 8 Studio . All of the plug-ins that it comes bundled with help the decision since they round out what I would be missing in my library choice.
Library: VSL Vienna SE. Yeah, it was a tough choice to make but I find that there's a touch more variety with Vienna SE than my East West libs (which I love) simply because it goes beyond orchestral instruments. I also have awesome saxes, grinding guitars, mallets, keyboards, etc. I must add that I do have both Basic and Extended libs from this one. I also like how you can do small ensemble work or large scale pieces with it. I don't love the trombones or trumpets nor the timp but ALL of the winds are phenomenal.
