Thanks to everyone for all the helpful information. I opted for CSS this time around, and so far I am not disappointed that I did. Overall, it feels more consistent and immediately usable than HWS, and I feel that I can get some really good emotion out of it without spending too much time tweaking CCs. On the Spitfire side I have SSW, and I feel that the legato there is more difficult to use, so I'm very much looking forward to adding the rest of the CS family (hurry up CSB!).
