    I've made a short video, running the same 4 block chords through 8 strings sample libraries. Not a stellar example, just for fun.

    Nice! My two are:

    Cinematic Strings 2
    EWQL Hollywood Strings (smoothest triads)

    Metropolis Ark sounds odd as it does not suit this particular demo, but I have it and it works for non triad stuff.

    My favorites are EWQL and Albion ONE. Metropolis Ark, I tend to only use for the basses as it's not really suited for subtility in strings :-D
