I got my Perfomance Set today and loaded legato patches from the variety of instruments it includes. Guys, this is it. The search for expressive performances is over.
It was really hard for myself to believe that THAT many intervals for all the notes were recorded. Well folks, it is true, and it shows with \"flowing,\" colors.
I played with the legato trumpet section, and you can hear the intervals between each of the notes played. No need for keyswitching at all, which was an incredible joy.
The grace-note legato patch on the oboe made my mouth drop. You can perform virtuosic passages with brilliant ease, and the outcome is equal to that of a professional instrumentalist.
I can go on and on about how great this library is, but I\'d end up writing a novel. The price is steep, ( I should know ) but it is worth every penny a hundred fold. If you have to sell the kids, do it. There is a catch to the aesthetic quality achievable by these samples, and it\'s how much memory it takes up.
Each of these patches take up massive amounts of memory, but it is a small price to pay. Purchasing another gigamachine for this library is recommended, and would be well worth it. I\'d take advantage of the first edition prices now to access the VIP prices besides spending double that if you were to buy the pro edition new all-together.
If you\'re sick and tired of messing around with tweaking performances, get VSL. From now on you can concentrate on the music, which is a pleasant contradistinction to the constant worry of the realism of samples.
And no, I don\'t work for Ilio.
