I also noticed the library sizes are now posted on their website.

  • Modern Scoring Strings Library Size:
    • About 131GB with lossless compressed audio files (approximately 160GB uncompressed). 140GB required during installation for the entire 130GB library.

  • Modern Scoring Strings Expanded Legato Library Size:
    • About 60GB with lossless compressed audio files (approximately 80GB uncompressed). 70GB required during installation for the entire 60GB library.

Hmm with the discount offered, it might make sense to purchase Genesis and then MSS?

Weren’t the library sizes already included on the site? Pretty sure I remember seeing them there before.

Very nice pricing. Grabbing it as soon as I can.

If I may make another request/suggestion @dxmachina – you’ve mentioned before that trem. sul pont. is included in MSS, yet it’s missing from the articulations list (it just shows trem. as a separate sustain). Would it be possible to update that list to include any articulations (esp. combos, like with trem. + sul pont.) that aren’t included yet in it, just to have a complete picture of the flexibility MSS offers? I know we’ll all find out soon anyway once it’s available, but it’s nice to know in advance. :thumbsup:

I don't know why i had my hopes up that it would be dirt cheap for LASS Full owners, but I suppose it's still a very good value for how much you get! I'll definitely buy in
I had the same notion. Of course, when you read through the features and try to grasp the scope of the content you get the idea that this might be on a whole different league than most other string library releases. Now all we need to know is how all that actually sounds...!

Interesting.. if I read the chart on the site correctly, after the introductory period it seems that there will be no discounts for LASS users afterwards.

Very satisfied with the pricing!

+1 Now all we need to know is how all that actually sounds

Very interested in hearing how the expansion sounds. I can live without the legato transitions if it's possible to get a decent fake sordino sound with the base library. I don't think most could tell the difference in a mix when done right.

I agree, the scope is massive. It makes total sense

Let me predict, Once it's released, Someone will be posting this :

"Oh.. the legatos are bumpy here. I can't use this library."

Given this has been a pretty popular type of complaint on VI-C for almost every new Strings library released after CSS.

I'm also curious how the MSS Solo Violin, and Cello will sound compared to LASS First Chairs.

The Solo Viola is recycled from LASS. Not sure why they did that, they mention it is to match MSS Sound, but I don't really understand that reasoning.

I would not have minded if the first chairs would have been made into an optional expansion to bring the base price down another bit.
Personally I would be interested in the legato extension before having solo instruments (already got that covered)

I can't recall if I saw this info the last time I visited AudioBro, anyways.. I just saw this today, and imho. it doesn't hurt to post that info. on this thread.

MSS is due by the end of this month. I wonder if Sonokinetic's new Strings Library will be released around the same time. That should be an interesting String library Combo release :)

I'm guessing the Sonokinetic Strings Library will be out during Q1-2021, so maybe Feb, or March. We shall see.

I'm very dissapointed for all the hype on the great price for AB investors...this would have to be the "the srtring library to replace them all" which I'm positive it isn't..pass

Of course it isn't, there is no such string library and I'm not sure if anyone ever claimed it to be. That said, it's pretty baffling to me that you can make a judgement call on the library without having heard a single note. I mean you could think it's too expensive, but then what do you base that on? None of us know what it sounds like our what it can and can't do.
Anyway, by all means pass on it, to each their own, I just don't quite understand how you're able to make that call before having heard a single note from the library.

Hmmmm..... Issues with The Instrument, the player, both, or .... ?
They aren't going to tell us that, but you don't use old content when you have new content unless there is a problem with that content. Else you just wasted resources for no reason.

Well, I find it very odd.

If they had problems with the player, they can hire another one, if they had problems with editing the samples, well.. they could take more time to get it right, so.. it's a bit of a mystery, and makes no sense to me that they will use the old LASS solo viola samples for a brand new library, where everything is re-done.
