Okay, I really must thank Kirk publicly for his amazing customer support when it comes to his libraries. I have the cheapest one of the bunch but he still treated me like I bought his top shelf library when it came to getting staccatos in my Sapphire strings. I'm honestly so delighted that he would take the time to find out what my issues were and did his best to remedy them. And he did!
Even though I also own some of the bigger sample libraries on the market, I used Sapphire concert strings in a recent contest entry because they gave me the exact realism in the mix that I needed. My VSL nor EWQLSO violins just didn't seem right in this case. The performance controls and the variety embedded in his samples really are quite astonishing. I feel as though I'm performing the line when using his string patches, not just entering a facsimile.
thanks again Kirk for your amazing products and even more amazing customer service.
A very happy customer.
