How do those of you that have actually tried the VSL programs feel about the string articulations.
The library is billed as avoiding the problematic \'machine gun\' (their phrase) effect on quicker passages by allowing multiple up and down bow samples. I\'m particularly interested in the effectiveness of the rapid bowing techniques in the pp-mp range.
Secondly, they have developed some sort of proprietary method of simulating legato playing (the Achilles heel of sampling). Have they managed to pull this off? (I\'m not refering to the myriad sampled runs, scales, trills, etc. but to actual playable legato instruments.)
