This...It's very limited and really not worth the $49...however, if it's the ONLY library that someone has, it might be worth it...but if you already have great libraries, for $49, I doesn't offer anything at all really...and spiccatos are of different lengths too...not really an impressive prelude to the pro version...and yes, it's free, but I think SF did this as a way of creating a "demo" so that we get a taste of the library and buy the pro version or core...this is good marketing, but it's not the BBCSO's best foot forward. I would have rather seen ONE instrument, but killer...like what 8dio does with try packs, and get an actual sense of the instrument and potential, than a very scaled down version where you are still left to wonder if the full version is going to be any better.
I only a/b's the flutes against Studio Series Pro...not exactly fair, but BBC did sound much warmer...but you can also hear the recording techniques are basically Spitfire. Both will work, but BBC did sound better within the piece than Studio Winds did. So at least, their flute sounds nice to me...well, one articulation anyway.. LOLIt'd be cool to a/b it with some of my other stuff to get a sense of what BBCSO would sound like
My favorite feature...brilliant. But the multitimbral use of Kontakt is killer...this interface lacks routing...even the full version from what I hear can't be layered.Is no one going to mention how ridiculously convenient this interface is? The entire orchestra right in front of you, click the section and it instantly loads the all the articulations for that instrument!
