    Best general purpose orchestral bang-for-the-buck?

    Dear GigaFriends,

    It seems by all the comments that the garitan strings would be one of the ultimate libraries to own, but I don\'t have that kind of money to spend right now.

    I need a good general purpose library for orchestral intruments and am currently looking at:
    \'Symphonic Fields Forever\' or the \'Prosonus Orchestral Collection\' (need to stay ~$200-250 range)

    Are there others in this price range I should be considering?

    Comments and/or suggestions welcome...

    Would like a library I could use to add Strings, Violins(Solo and ensemble), Cello (Solo and Section), Dbl Bass
    Fr Horns, some perc, Bassoon, Oboe etc to augment contemporary and classical styles.

    I have GigaStudio.

    Regards,
    --Doug

    In the low price range like that I think you\'d love the Prosonus library.

    Robert,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does any one know if there is a site that features demos made exclusively with the Prosonus Orchestral Collection?

    Doug,

    I have Prosonus and would highly recommend it. It is big and is a great starter or add-on library. It is not perfect but is worth more than double the offered price - to me. With the money you save, you might want to purchase DD Solo String.

    Craig,

    Thanks for the comments. Looks like I\'ll be hunting down the best price for the Prosonus library.

    It would be interesting to hear a demo for the Garitan String Lite version, which goes for about that price range.

    Hmm, I wasn\'t aware there was such an offering.

    Could someone fill me in on the details? Although, I suspect I will still consider the Prosonus for the variety of instruments available.

    But I\'ve also heard Garritan strings are awesome.

    Regards,

    Following along here, regarding the Prosonus OC, it sounded wonderful in the demo.

    Is it in Giga format or Akai, the Bigfish site seemed a bit vague? If in Akai, any problem converting.

    Thanks,
