Greetings - I don't post much, but I read this forum daily, and appreciate all the great information that is proffered here. Hopefully I can rely on the charity of others for some advise. I am (relatively) new to home music. I am well full of VST synths, and have a few hardware synths as well, but I and am looking to get more into the orchestral side (classical music is my first love). I currently have Komplete 11 Ultimate, which includes the Symphony Essentials, EWHO (I have never really gotten along well with Play), as well as the older Kirk Hunter Diamond Orchestra. I am looking to purchase one more, how shall I put it, more "classic" or "serious" type orchestra. After reading a ton a VI Control threads, and listening a ton of libraries, I have narrowed it down to three possibilities: 1. Upgrade to the full NI Symphony Series, currently on sale for $300. 2. The Spitfire Symphony Bundle (which includes the Strings, Brass, and Woodwinds) 3. The Vienna Special Edition Complete. I would also probably upgrade to the Pro2 software. Though the NI Symphony Series is by far the least expensive, it does not have a great reputation here. I believe I can hear why. I am also not a huge fan of Kontakt (which obviously effects the Spitfire as well). I am willing to spend the money to get a "good" orchestra that will last me a long time. The Vienna package is currently on sale until the end of the month, but I have seen the Spitfire on a Wish List sale of somewhat close - so I consider the price between the two to be a wash. I use Cubase, so I already have an E-Licenser, which I believe I should be able to use with Vienna. Basically, I am looking to buy into an ecosystem that would allow me to write, learn, and not have to wonder if I should have bought an upgrade. I really just don't want to keep buying libraries - I want to guy a good one, and learn it thoroughly. I may have a "slight" preference towards Vienna, but would like to get thoughts here. Thank you in advance.
