Now this looks interesting...
I agree. There has been an unnecessary emphasis on sound design libraries than real sounding strings in the recent past..Hopefully they don't release it as a cold-n-distorted string library for sound design after recording it as a nice sounding string section. Some developers tend to do this, i.e. Heavyocity NOVO Strings.
Because that will make the library more expensive while I just want a natural sound with a lot of articulations.Why not both sound design aspects and the organic recordings?
Best of both worlds
Yeah, that's true. I have to admit, I have rather a soft spot for SoundIron's libraries for the sound design elements. Olympus Micro has made it on projects where I really 'should' use my more expensive libraries. I just find it easy to layer in.Because that will make the library more expensive while I just want a natural sound with a lot of articulations.
SI always have sound design patches in their libraries (ambiences) but that's something different than morphing from natural sound to artificial.

I have to say, I wanted to buy a new string library to accompany my CS2, and, surprise, out of all those strings libraries out there, I've ended up buying none. So i'm glad new string libraries are coming out. And Hyperion actually seems really promising. I don't mind it being chamber sized as long as the sound is slighly larger than SCS. I hope there will by a bigger number of dynamic layers, especially for short articulations and especially low dymanics, I hope the sound is rich and nothing like lo-fi CSS. Seems they'll sample more stuff over some time, so more articulations will be available and I hope it won't be as expensive as Spitfire stuff. And that they'll not package everything under one big library so you have to buy that one expensive pack. Hope we'll get more details soon because we don't know enough yet so my hopes may be false.Because there aren't enough regular sounding string libraries out there already?
My good man, you can't swing a cat these days and not hit a string library. In fact just this very morning I got a free string library in my corn flakes. The other day I got a flat tire because I ran over a string library on my way to work. There's a massive shortage of workers for this years string library harvest and rumor has it it will now be mandatory, as a world citizen, to learn a string instrument so we will have enough string players to sample in the years to come.
