So far I\'ve seen several posts from users, and not a single bad word to say.
One common thread has been that,although the Gary Garritan Gigaharp is exquisite, the Xsample one compares very favourably.
I\'ve also seen great comments about the disk with the Rhodes on it.
On the Gigasampler demo disk, I was knoced out by the woodwind demos.
I really enjoy the XSample stuff. The harp is absolutely gorgeous. Also, the woodwinds are top notch. I don\'t really care for the brass, but because I\'m a trumpet player, I\'m kind of a tough cookie when it comes to brass
I have not had very good tech support from them, though. I emailed them a couple of months ago to try to figure out how to get the crescendo dimension to work, but they never answered. I think it\'s because there\'s no way to get them to work
I have bought the complete XSample library set and am very pleased with it so far. I agree with IOComposer that the woodwinds and harp are excellent. Nick Phoenix\'s Quantum Leap Brass compliments this library nicely.
I also use the excellent Yamaha VL1-m virtual acoustic synth (with breath controller) for woodwind, saxophones and a little brass. I find samples ok for most musical situations, but the expression obtainable from the VL1-m can leave most samples behind - especially saxophones.
I find emulating expressive trumpet parts (e.g. Herb Alpert style) very challenging still.
I have the harp disk with the celeste and both instruments are excellent. I also have the woodwinds disk which is also quite good. They give you both stereo and mono samples of all instruments which comes in handy if you are low on hard drive space. I use mostly the mono samples for this reason. They have always responded to my emails within 24 hours and have been most helpful with problems.
