"Yeah, the problem with Spitfire audio stuff is that it all works better with other spitfire audio stuff, Although I don't mind that, that much, most of their stuff is great, I especially like their percussion, it has tons of round robin and…"

"Cinesamples doesn't really have this issue. It has three mic positions and you can cut off the reverb and adjust the releases forming a very dry sound. Sony only has a 1.5 ish reverb tail anyways compared to the 2.5 to 3 on Spitfire's Air…"

"This is a old thread where I don't know why people are responding but here's my thoughts: LASS very detailed, you can get wonderful results but takes a lot of work and can sound quite harsh without proper reverb and eq. Spitfire wonderful…"

"I'm using Spitfire BML strings mostly. I have LASS but I don't use it because the strings are so OUT OF TUNE. [You play a note and it takes a second for the string players to settle on a single pitch]. This is NOT real world [except for…"

"Spitfire has a beautiful assortment of string libraries at really good prices. Berlin Strings is one of the best I've heard altogether but is priced at $840 euros, which equates to about $940 USD.... great sounding library, one of my favorite…"

"Excuse an uninformed question: what is CC morphing? I agree about the spitfire and LASS-stuff, really good and love the clean, direct feel of the sound. I also found cinematic strings quite great for slower parts and really enjoy the GUI. Hollywood…"

"Well, to me it's about combining the best you can get, I've tested most libraries but at the end the ones I've kept are Lass, SF Mural and Berlin Strings. The best ones and the ones I've liked the most are Berlin strings (bow…"

"Nice to meet you too, Raymond. As you can guess I mostly use these libraries for mockups, to be replaced by real instrumentalists. But sometimes I need them for their own sake. I just went ahead and bought the Mural library - and also…"

Robert Larsson replied to ADENS SKY's discussion Best of the best String libraries?
"Spitfire Mural does indeed look pretty solid! I also like Orchestral Tools's Berlin Strings, but it's a smaller section, and considering the price.. God there's so many great libraries these days! I'd go for spitfire. They…"

"Thank You Raymond, that was very nice. Good balanced sound. Strong bass, and the highs, not too screechy. This makes me want to buy CS all the more."

"My 2 cents: The best I have right now is EWQL SO Gold. I like the violins and violas, they have a more classical orchestra sound, and I'm just a hobbyist, don't need the Hollywood sound. But I don't like the cellos, and the basses…"

About Me (Must include biographical information about you as a composer):
When I was 8 years old my father bought me a cheap key bored from Toys R us. I used the hell out of that little 20 key keyboard. My father started recording it with a handheld recorder. I would love to tell you that my father put me in music classes but unfortunately we we're rather poor at the time. I never learned how to read music still to this day but that didn't stop me. I really took composition seriously in 2008 using the best recording software and libraries I could get my hands on. As a 31 year old composer, I started a YouTube page with my music and have gained a large fan base. I am not religious at all however There HAS to be a god to bring so many amazing composers to this earth who have changed lives! my name is Stephen M Lloyd from ADENS SKY and I'm a film trailer composer!

Best of the best String libraries!

Hollywood strings, Symphobia, LA scoring strings... We can go on forever. EWQL Hollywood strings have made it up the food chain being the "top dog" in the industry of VST's. Why is this? Is it primarily sample recording? Or can it be the control of velocity at your fingertips!
