Hi Chris, hello everybody. Thanks for accepting me.
I am a newbie, i have a question.
If i have to go for a 1 Composer tool, which i should use between the four Ark's?
I saw this beautiful review, but i can't understand which should be the main differences between the four Ark's.
Second question, but i think it's a matter of taste, which should i go between one of The Metropolis, or Albion 1, or Jaeger?

Thanks!
Matteo

What kind of music are you writing Matteo? If it’s huge and epic, start with 1. If you need quiet but still epic, 2. If you need epic percussion and stabbing hits, 3. If you want smaller ensembles and definition, 4.

Hi Chris! i am going for small ensembles and definition, but the Ensembles you have reviewed seems also pretty epic to me! (which is a pro). My concern or doubt is: maybe they improved their technology between the four Ark's, and this fourth maybe is a little updated in samples?

And, second, did you had the chance to try also Jaeger or Albion? You would still go for Metropolis? Thanks.

I'd say the quality between all the samples is very consistent, so you won't have to worry about updated quality in this one. They actually released a small update for the other Arks recently, so many bugs in those were fixed.

I've never tried Jaeger or Albion, but for my style of writing, I prefer the Ark series. I prefer the overall sound as well.

Oh man, I've been avoiding Orchestral Tools on purpose. I know if I get one, I'll probably want to get everything else as well and with that comes storage space, SSDs...etc. Thanks for the review.

Ok so your Orchestral Tools collection covers a pretty wide range of instruments. How do they blend with your non orchestral tools libraries?

Very well actually, I also use Cinesamples stuff and CSS, so generally the samples are towards the middle ground of being not too wet nor dry.
