Ive seen quite a few post over the years by people interested in the Miraslav library in giga format but wish the prices were lower .
Here a new ad from Sweetwater.com ,the cost of the library is 50 percent off.
Still seems high to me for a old library in this new day and time, but for some that have been waiting for it maybe its your time to buy.

Miroslav Vitous - Solo Instruments I
This disk contains Bassclarinet, Bassoon, Basstrombone, Clarinet, Contrabassoon, Trombone, Trumpet, Viola, and Violoncello. All in the highest quality, and very expressive. This is the first of two Solo Instrument disks, which are a must for anyone wishing to emulate orchestral solo performance.
Miroslav Vitous - Solo Instruments II
This disk contains Alto flute, Contrabass, English horn, Flute, French horn, Oboe, Piccolo, Tuba, and Violin. This is the second Solo Instrument disk, which again contains the most expressive and musical orchestral samples on the market today.
Miroslav Vitous - String Ensembles
This huge undertaking contains 11 Violins, 23 Violins, 4 Violas, 4 Violoncellos 10 Violoncellos, and 9 Contrabasses. Playing styles include: Vibrato, No Vibrato, Mute, Detache, Pizzicato, Staccato, Sul Ponty, Sul Ponty Tremolo, with various speeds and velocities for the ultimate performance in String sampling.
Miroslav Vitous - Woodwind and Brass Ensembles
This disk contains 3 Flutes, 3 Bassoons, 3 Clarinets, 3 Oboes, 3 Trombones, 3 Trumpets, and 4 French horns. All the ensembles you will need, to complete the Symphonic Orchestra Samples. Expressive and musical with the highest sound quality.
Miroslav Vitous - Classical Percussion and Harp
This disk contains classical percussion and harp with a few extras included. There are too many to list here. This disk rounds out the Symphonic Orchestra Samples with beautifully recorded instruments that will cut through your mix with impact. All recorded and edited with one thing in mind . To achieve the most realistic classical sounds for orchestral applications.
I think I paid around $700 for the mini library as well and never liked it. I just loaded it up again and to me it doesn\'t sound much better then a digital version of a mellotron. Not very expresive at all. The Westgate Library blows the Mini Miraslov out of the water for woodwinds. Now with 2 major competing symphonic libraries they may need to revamp their set.
I\'ve never used Miroslav\'s library, but I\'ve heard that it\'s the best sounding, most expressive library for the *size*. So, maybe if the whole thing were 1k, people who can\'t afford 4-6 comps for VSL or EWQLSO could use it on just their one computer very effectively.
Perhaps its the most ideal library for use on a laptop?
Right on target JudasCloud!
If it was at the right price, it would be a nice thing for people starting out who can\'t afford some of the new sounds. Still one of the more expressive libraries but that expression can also make it hard to use.
Wow, you guys bash this quite a bit - The demos I\'ve heard from this library have some wonderful character. Particularly the strings and brass. Although Miroslavs demos aren\'t exactly super, they showed some nice potential. I just wish it wasn\'t so expensive, as I would purchase the strings (which is what, like 1,700? I\'m probably wrong).
I totally agree that Miro is pretty much on par with AO, and even $1,990.00 is about $1590 too much for what you\'re getting, especially in light of what\'s available today. This price reduction is laughable because it\'s about three or four years overdue and still too little too late.
