    Hollywood Strings for the vibrato control and great dynamic range (Huge fan of string swells ^_^). Started enjoying the library much more after putting it on a SSD.

    Garritan Personal Orchestra 5* by far. It shows me how bad my string writing is and helps me not get music projects so I can starve to death faster and get all the recognition I need as a composer.

    No brainer for $149.95. If you're on version 4 and happen to be alive, it's only a 49.95 upgrade. You know you want it!
    Garritan Personal Orchestra 5: Because life is too short to transcribe.

    *I've received free product(s) from Garritan.

    Really? I'm kidding.

    I still use the vibraphone, xylophone, and harp from GPO. Before I got Emotional Cello I used to use the Cello Solo patch. Hey, if that's your fave string library more power to ya.

    But still, look into getting Hollywood Strings. You'll thank me later (as long as you use the manual as a temp bible).

    I was being sarcastic. I don't find GPO that useful :)

    It was good for me to play for melodic style string tones like the ET theme.

    I've added a couple of libraries lately. Please let me know if if any libraries are missing.
