    I don't have anything from them yet but everyone seems to like the libraries around here. If you search the forum there are some threads with users discussing some of the libraries they enjoy the most.
    Anyway, I'm about to get the Bamboo bundle and Clack with the current sale they're having because I could use some percussion variety and I'll get to know they're libraries.

    I really recommend the Iron Pack although you'll need the full version of Kontakt. These have some wonderful sound-design potential. They aren't deep sampled, some of these are taken from their other sound libraries, so if you love a particular pack it might be worth upgrading to the full version.

    I have quite a few of their tonal and other percussion instruments as well as Olympus Elements and Olympus Micro libraries and also their Iron Pack Bundle. Although none of these seem to be designed specifically with hybrid orchestral music in mind, every Soundiron library always contains a substantial number of sound design patches that are derived from the original samples and they also have an extensive FX section allowing you to shape the sounds further. My personal Soundiron favorites in that respect are Alto Glockenspiel, Steel Tones and Noah Bells; each of them have quite a few ambient patches included that could be potentially useful for hybrid music.

    APE is my go-to huge percussion ensemble for low end stuff. It sounds massive.

    You should check out Sonespheres 1 Distance
    One of my personal favorites.

    The Theremin+ is magnificent; even better at emulating the real thing than my Moog Voyager (with LOTS of programming time at my end), and great to have long-term when the one from Wavelore is sort of abandonware at this point (and not as good anyway).

    Requiem Light was great to work with when I had it, and Soundiron was a joy to deal with when I resold the library. My SI experience is limited to that, but I can only say good things about them.

    Also, the individual Iron Packs that make up that bundle are available for a few bucks each. I just picked up Tuned Glass during the sale for $3, and was pleasantly surprised at the extras in such a stripped-down release.

    I've missed the sale but strongly considered Antidrum. I kept changing my mind thinking I likely already have what I need, at least sound wise, and just haven't explored much yet; Evolve, Mutations & Mutations 2.

    If you (or anyone) are familiar, is there significant crossover between Antidrum & the Evolve libs in regards to hybrid drums/percussion?

    Funny you should ask! I realise yesterday that after I posted that, I don't actually have Antidrum (I must have been thinking of something else). I did just purchase it during the sale so I will be exploring shortly though.
