It’s not the yearly $200. It’s that if you decide to stop, and then down the road have to recall anything, you will need to sign up again. And unless you pay for the start and stop option, you might be stuck paying for another year. Not sure. It’s really not worth it long term u less you use every single library in the sub.
Even then it makes no sense long term IMO. Why spend hundreds and still have nothing when you could just buy and have it forever?

Nucleus looks interesting, although lacking some solo instruments is a deal-killer for me.

One thing that doesn't seem to be getting much consideration or discussion is how easy is a library to learn? For some that might not matter, but for others it's huge.

Nucleus has several solo instruments and is very easy to learn. It’s solidly programmed and consistent across instruments.

BBCSO Pro is 40% off in december and its a good all in on library with articulations, other libraries don´t have, like portamento, flautando, sulpon, sordino recordings, short harmonics........

Thanks, but I want a full spectrum of solos. It's odd IMO that they leave several out which could have easily been included.

Unless you know absolutely nothing, it's not a problem I don't think..However..I must say that even an experienced user will need to take some time to learn the articulations in EW..also some libraries have the dynamics reversed...drove me nuts...lol

It's also getting a pretty decent update including more content from what I heard.

Yeah, I've seen/heard enough about EW that I think I'm gonna pass. I'm old and impatient and have enough things driving me nuts :)

Although I wouldn’t doubt that with their new release, they might have reworked the libraries to be easier.
