    I was looking at a few threads here on VIC and walkthrough videos of Amadeus Symphonic Orchestra. For 150usd (99usd with EDU), it sounds really good to me! - Scripted legato, but not such a big problem imo, as it also sounds good to me. - A lot of instruments, and even the choirs sound pretty...

    [QUESTION] Which Orchestral Libraries are a must-have for film/game scoring?

    "Scramble the Bolts!" (Orchestral)

    This piece tells a story, from a sudden call to action, to a bittersweet end. The main theme was written in the style of a military hymn, though the actual lyrics didn't make the cut.
