    Despite some frustrations with Adagietto, over the last few days, I've had a renewed appetite for Adagio....

    Would owning the violas and Adagietto entitle one to any discount off the whole bundle? Any idea how much?

    I get the feeling 8dio is monitoring Vi-C. There were people who wanted the Epic Dhol as a X-Mas flash sale and it came afterwards...
    Now this thread and... some time later they go on sale! :D
    Could be an coincidence of course.

    8dio's marketing strategy is to always have some attractive sale. Some of those sales may be planned for whatever reason, but since the library on sale can be pretty much any of them, they can use the bump in attention from a thread here to feed into that strategy. So I doubt it is deeply calculated, but I also doubt it is completely a coincidence.

    I'm trying to conserve hard drive space, so I would love to purchase this library and just keep the solo viola on my drive (archive the rest of the library) is that possible?

    Yes. The samples are single files and organised in different subdirectories.
    You can just keep the "Solo" folder and remove the others you don't need.
    The Solo samples have roughly a size of 2.5GB.

    Thanks for this comprehensive answer! I was wondering about the sample sizes too.

    Hmm...I have and use Emo Cello all the time (and expect to scoop the Hein soon)...but at under 30 the Adagio Cello would be a no-brainer for me. @Soundiron Team

    If I only had the POW-ah!

    I second the cello sale. This will complete my Adagio series. I have Anthology, but it's just not the same as Adagio at all. Or Agitato for that matter.

    Okay...so it sounds like you don't actually have Adagio Cellos. But you still have the power to make this flash sale happen.

    Anyone else think 8dio Adagio Cellos might kick ass? If only there was some way we all could get it and find out.

    Also, 66 Bases might kick ass, and maybe 66 tubas...

    I'd buy this, but I suspect that since I have Adagietto it would probably be redundant.

    no it wouldn't...completely different. Adagio also has solo and divisi instruments.

    The bass is excellent imo, plenty of useable articulations, and I personally get along fine with the legato (lol). That would be a terrific sale. It's my default for solo bass, but the ensembles can be fine as well.

    Keep in mind that I haven't grabbed the Hein Cello, Viola, or DB yet, and I imagine they're just as sensational as his violin. I kind of hesitate recommending the Adagio over the Hein, however if these sales continue then everyone benefits big time from a small price and a still-very-good library.

    It's my understanding that Adagietto uses the same samples as Adagio, it's simply far more limited in articulations. Divisi is nice, but I use AM for solo instruments.
