As we all can see the quality of samples is increasing. 16 bit becomes 24 bit, 44.1 kHz becomes 96 kHz and stereo becomes 5.1 channel surround.
What I\'m a bit afraid of is that, having bought a lot of expensive libraries, the libraries become not usefull anymore, because the new sample qualities become the new standard. It would be a shame if you had a nice big collection of instruments, which becomes not usefull anymore within a couple of years, only because of the quality.
The VSL is an example of a library which has an upgrade to higher quality and you don\'t have to pay the full price, but an upgrade price, if you own the first version.
It would be nice if other libraries would also have such upgrade possibilities in the future.
