    I think a number of people made the same mistake - I think Keyscape was released last year, and Geosonics a few years ago.

    For me:
    1. Fluffy Audio Rinascimento
    2. Fluffy Audio Dominus
    3. Embertone Joshua Bell Violin
    4. Cinematic Series Solo Strings
    5. Strezov Rhodope 2
    6. Orange Tree Samples Rock Standard
    7. Orange Tree Samples Hollow Body Blues
    8. Acoustic Samples B5 v2
    9. Indiginus Wurl-E
    10. Indiginus Blue Street Brass
    11. Spitfire Orchestral Swarm
    12. Soniccouture Electro-Acoustic

    Edit:
    Adding the upcoming Strezov Balkan Ethnic Orchestra (on the basis of the walk through), and Impact Soundworks Koron and Impact Soundworks Ventus Bansuri.


    ...and I made the other mistake of listing a whole lot of libraries and not just one

    Spitfire LCO Strings - I always wanted something like this.
    Cinematic Studio Solo Strings - Not too keen on the vibrato, but actually the non-vibrato legato and the shorts alone are worth it.

    However, these are the only two 2017 released libraries I actually bought this year.
    I had some catching up to do with older stuff... on sale... :D

    No worries, wasn't too sure. Sounds like an excellent library. :)

    Embertone´s Joshua Bell Violin (for me that´s the absolutely unchallenged No.1 of 2017!), Cinematic Studio Strings (Ensemble - not the Solists!), Fluffy Audio Dominus, Ilya Efimov Uillean Pipes. And Strezov Sampling´s Rhodope 2 of course ;)

    Man that's a tough one as 2017 was such an incredible year for libraries, but I think I would give it an even tie between Joshua Bell Vln and SF London Contemporary Orchestra Strings - which is constantly surprising me at how unique and useful it its.

    Although I don't have these libraries - the Cinematic Studio Solo Strings, the Joshua Bell violin and the rerecorded Light and Sound Chamber strings are the three libs I can think of that was released this year that I think I'd really like if I had them - again, based on demos and walkthroughs.
