    I don't think I've ever seen a single demo --even just 30 secs-- of Alternative Solo Strings posted on VI-C. Anyone??

    It's alternative.

    So I have Artisan Cello. It's a fun little library, especially the little wibbly-wobbly bits on the artisan long patch. Frustrating caveat - the little cog where you can remove certain RR samples is missing, so you have to dig way down under the hood if you want a specific sample to trigger each time.
    (For reference - each note is sampled twice. Each sample is unique in that there are ornamentations to it - rebows, mordents, trills, scoops.)

    So the question is... Does the repackaged AltSS have the sample edit cog that other Spitfire libraries do?

    I caved and bought Alternative Solo Strings. With that, I'm now the proud owner of the full Thunderbolt collection, since I'd bought the other libs along the way.

    What pushed me over the edge was @Justin Robbins's great track:

    As an added bonus, Native Access greeted me with this:

    Native Access has me pegged correctly.

    I was also sold by Justin's noodling and the lib really does seem like instant "that indie movie you didn't particularly like but don't regret watching" sound. I don't think I'm gonna be using that performance legato though, not sure if it's the crossfade tuning, but every transition sounds like the performer is doing a quick rebow right before changing the note. Melodic lines sound better with the basic long articulations.

    The bass pizz is a great jazz double bass.

    Really liking Alternative Solo Strings! Definitely suited to the more avant-garde. The Alternative Longs are so cool.

    And the time has finally come to try HZ Strings out. The Trem CS Pont Waves Patch is amazing. Gonna have a lot of fun with this library!
