I've owned GPO for a couple of years now, but after recently purchasing Logic Studio, I think it's time for me to upgrade my sample library as well. The only problem is finding the right one/mix of libraries. I really love the Westgate Studio instruments, but I am really drawn to some sort of "complete" library, such as EWQL Gold XP or VSL SE (speaking of which, after reading the other thread on here--how do the woodwinds compare to Westgate's? Would it be a good idea to just get the Apassionata Strings I and a few Westgate libraries?) I also own the Garritan Solo Violin and Cello, and am definitely going to get the Samplemodeling Trumpet.
Overall, I'm just looking for something that will be easy to use/play/mix, especially in conjunction with a notation program as well as with sequencing software. (I usually write by hand/in Finale and then mix separately, although I'm very new to mixing.)
Any suggestions? My price range isn't huge, but this is a process, so don't let that be a factor. And thanks for your help!!
