The CD was just released for GS today. I\'m wondering how good the strings are in comparison to the full MV String Ensembles. Does anyone (Dave?) know if they\'re based on the same samples? Also, are they stereo or mono? The press release says stereo, but at the Marcati site it says the Mini Library is mono. Does anyone know if there is an upgrade policy, e.g. if you buy the Mini Library you can upgrade to the String Ensembles for the regular price less what you paid for the mini. Many sample companies have trade up policies.

I\'m not doing full blown orchestrations. I just need some strings to fill in behind other instruments and I love the sound of the MV ensemble strings. Also, when are the other MV CDs expected to be released?
