I think the issue here is that most of us contributing to this thread already own a fairly comprehensive collection of string libraries, and so the pricing of this new library becomes problematic for many when they look down the left hand side of their copy of Kontakt and see how many string libraries they already own, and consider what they can achieve with what they already have. Has anyone noticed how a certain other company has been offering a range of low priced 'specialist' string libraries in the £ 200-300 price range - and at that cost these libraries start to become an impulse purchase. At the current price, even the introductory price, this new library is a more of a carefully considered purchase. Is it worth the money ? Well that's for everyone to judge for themselves, but I'm sure that a tremendous amount of skill and care went into its creation, and at the end fo the day, the market will decide. But it sure does sound very nice indeed.
