I thought that was an acronym he was anticipating - e.g. Pslams or P-slams = Pat slams ==> PatS

Ah, come on! I wasn\'t slamming Donnie. I was just having fun. Was it my timing? Too close to recent events? You\'re pulling my chain, aren\'t you? I see the happy face, but if I turn my head it looks like a symbol Penderecki might have used. Still, you do draw an interesting connection. I guess it\'s time to change my username.
Frankly, I could care less how folks on the Internet spell these days (pace Z6), just as long as I can understand them. I\'m particularly fond of KingIdiot\'s posts, which are masterpieces reminiscent of the pre-Websterian period (a huge chunk of human history, I might add).
P.S. Donnie, if my silly postscript irked you even in the slightest, I\'ll buy you a beer at next year\'s NAMM and apologize in person.
If anyone has the following libraries I would love to hear how they compare with the Prosonus strings. The midi file above has no tweaks to it so it would be a fair comparision for all libraries. The only thing I did to the Prosonus demo was add reverb and encode at 256kbs.
I would love to hear:
and any others I may have left out.

Hey Pat I would love to hear your version of that midi file.
Its just \"plug and play\" because there are no midi messages (ie. volume or expression) written in so you should be able to just plug anything in.
Please know that you shouldn\'t have to apologize over a typo. And I\'m sorry if my lapse in netiquette ticked you off in any way.
As for the MIDI file, I\'d like to give it a shot, though probably not until tomorrow or Friday night (our 17-month-old has been staying up until 11PM, thanks to the time change). Of course, KingId may be able to rise to the challenge sooner than I would, and I\'m certain he has a much better facility with GOS than I do. But I\'d still like to give it a go; at the very least, it\'s therapy for me.
Do you want to hear the GOS non-vibrato patches (I only have GOS and Dan\'s solo strings sans bass)? The voices on my recording of the Chichester Psalms really warble (waggle?), which made your non-vibrato arrangement all the more refreshing. On the other hand, the vibrato sustains and/or Grand Detache patches with expression applied could be nice. Or do you want to hear how a corresponding patch from another library responds to a simple MIDI file with little or no performance tweaking--apples to apples? BTW, is it your file or something you found in an online archive?
I\'d certainly be interested to hear what others can do with Miroslav, AO, Kirk Hunter, and Ultimate Strings (what did I miss?). Although I don\'t believe such comparisons would be particularly fair across the board, given the different ways in which patches respond to MIDI input, the comparisons do offer prospective customers a chance to hear the basic differences among libraries.
Whatever the outcome, let\'s make this fun and informative.
