"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 dynamics…"

"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 Studios.…"

"This is an 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 sound…"

"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 maybe high…"

"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 absolutely 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.…"

"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 sounds on) and Spitfire…"

"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 Spitfire's new…"

"I'm seriously thinking of purchasing the just released Spitfire Mural library [mentioned above]. I particularly like the manufacturer's description:
Mural offers a grand 60 piece string band (16,14,12,10,8) but is recorded and performed in such a…"

"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 don't like my…"

"On a slightly different note - is the current 32GB iMac powerful enough to handle a basic sampled orchestra with some other unique sampled instruments thrown in?

Thanks for any reply."
