sorry to start another thread re: ethnic libraries, but i have a couple specific questions.
i'm looking primarily for oud, and secondarily other middle eastern instruments. i see they're contained in ra and ethno world 4, but for me those libraries are sort of overkill since i don't need 75% of the contents. are there any other more specialized libraries with as good quality? basically, the less i spend on a sample library to demo with, the more i can pay a musician to rerecord for the final score.
also, if anyone can convince me as to the superior quality of ra or ew4's samples (i.e. great multisampling, velocity layers, articulations, etc) i'm all ears. thanks!
