Congratulations. Wise decision by your Mrs. Legato is obviously no longer an issue as proved by recent Pix trick example, just post some demos that make it sound good please.

Ok, spent about 15 minutes on this...did not do Batch Resave yet
but like this takes long time to Load the Patch. I love the Sound and
the Features, its Amazing but...there is definitely something wrong
with the Transitions, the first moment you turn it on you know there
is something wrong...its just not there. Lets see...I have tons of Strings
Libraries to compare the Transitions to and this did not have any WOW
effect Transitions wise, but Sound and Features is a different story.

1. Batch resave is a must, for pretty much any Kontakt library

2. Did you turn off auto divisi? If you're not playing for poly legato, it needs to be turned off (unless you are using a Split patch).

I keep ignoring this post, as I don't want to be tempted by more string libraries..but geez 233k views has piqued my curiosity..
Anyone care to summarize the last 4k posts on this subject? Good library to get?? ;)

Stupid question, what does batch resave even *do*? And if it's so critical why doesn't Native Access just do it automatically? Lol!

MSS is the updated version of Lass with new recordings and a ridiculous amount of features which make it so hotly anticipated. The first demos and user feedback were mixed and threw up a problem with the legatos. This has been pretty much fixed by users under the hood and also hopefully/more than likely by Audio bro with a new v1.1. There is still a debate raging about the actual sound of the library but users are split. The choice for Lass owners is tricky as Lass3 promises to update the features (not the recordings) but some people like the sound a Lass a lot as it has a realism that’s Mss doesn’t yet seem to have but is nevertheless possibly a very useable but different sounding library. Where Lass is a little rough but emotive , Mss is smoother but less immediately real. Hopefully on release of 1.1 new demos will emerge that convince people like me on the fence to jump ship. Quite possibly it is still worth getting even if you dont use the sustain or legato patches which is what I am thinking at the moment. There are plenty of other string libraries that sound better out of the box but none can do as much as this does.

Good library to get??

I dont have it but I think so

Not a reviewer but a professional film/tv composer and songwriter of 35 years with a little more time on my hands recently to spend too much time here. String libraries are addictive and should come with a health warning.

I don't think they have to do anything with each other
at all except the same Developer LOGO on their stuff.
There is actually an official LASS 3 upgrade coming up.

I still don't quite understand why that isn't part of the installation process. The whole thing doesn't exactly make sense to me

I feel like this first statement is already off and potentially confusing to people not familiar with what's actually going on.
Well thankfully it looks like he read the rest. And be fair, MSS has been developed on the experience of Lass and has some of its features, Auto divisi, Auto rhythm, moveable Aleatorics etc and let’s not forget even some of the same samples. ( why is the poor viola always forgotten )
Ps was just trying to be helpful.

I think its because Kontakt cant know before you install a library exactly where you are installing so it needs you to specify in the batch resave which speeds up the loading. Key sentence :. Kontakt has the ability to store sample path information for a library specifically for your machine and hard drive configuration
