    So its 'super aggressive' epic chamber ensembles? Is that a thing?

    I'm not even sure this is the size of a chamber ensemble. Seems even smaller.

    Late responding to this relevant 'reminder' and comparison. 'Serial urge' definitely gets to the heart of things ... along with Power Legato. :geek: This NI_Ark promo stirred dark forces within, and a lurch to action.
    I am well advised to allow time to clarify what is offered vs needed.

    Your exploration of BHCT, reminds how much of (3) Albions remains to be discovered. :notworthy:
    Fresh morning, back on track now, and all seems well. :thumbsup:

    Thanks and regards

    It is for me. :2thumbs: large ensemble patches sometimes lose a bit of bite and crunch and definition.

    Ironically I've not even gotten an email yet from OT about this library. Has anyone else?

    You'll only ever know for sure if you actually do try a power legato function. Go on, try it. It's no good living your life in such a Black cloud of crippling self doubt! haha!

    Yes, yesterday:

    No promises of loyalty discounts, or attached vouchers, though . . . ;-(

    Not expecting 'any' new Lib to be more than a salient addition to many past creations.
    Now trying judiciously to add whatever 'quality' content that seems worthwhile.
    Current struggle is next addition. Now using Albions One, Loegria, Tundra _ Inspire 1 /2 /TM /Ark1.
    For comparable cost, what complements these most .... ICENI /Ark 2 /Ark 4.
    If 'all' could be added .... would do so.
    No 'absolute' answers, but many out there can share their impressions ?

    I do like the offers from O T from N I very tempting or appealing,

    I cant seem to understand what O T are doing with Ark 1, 2 ,3 ,4, is it not a complete orchestra,

    What are you guys going for ? are there different instruments or is it some sort of balance in the liberty's you are liking.

    No, and there won't be any. I checked with OT, and there's no additional discount of any kind for Ark users. Bummer and probably deal-breaker for me.

    Ouch, same unless the walkthrough really wows me which I'm thinking at this point it won't.

    Ark 2 would be a good addition, especially at current discount. Probably wouldn’t be transformational though, only make use of Ark 1 easier. A good sectioned string library would probably be your most useful addition. You also seem lacking in woodwinds, which might be another addition. I remember you saying you had more than this, a lot of sonokinetic libraries, The Orchestra, etc. Then too it depends on what you want to do.

    (was posting as were you !) THX ! Ark 2 has felt a solid next step so far.
    Would have liked a NI_Ark2 /3 Bundle :P Ark4 is exciting intro, but I honestly have no clue yet how it fits.

    Appreciate your guidance. Cannot articulate "what I want to do" as current goal is mainly to fill-out /round-out inventory. No complaints whatsoever with past additions. Was focused for long time on 'main' Orch Libs, but now realizing I see more potential benefit from choices like BHCT, Afflatus, OA Chamber Strings, ...

    It’s hard to pull the trigger with one demo, dumb descriptions like POWER LEGATO, and a list of articulations even if they offer it at the same price as the other three Arks for owners of other Arks.

    I’m having a similar issue with the new SF brass library which went on prerelease with no demos (given the alternative of no demos or no walkthrough I find SF’s approach more useful).
