Everything pretty much in the thread title. If you could provide additional info about why would you choose one over the other, it'd be great.
While I complain about your dongle, I do have to say that this is great and what EVERY developer should be doing, considering the cost involved.- If you buy any software product / library through our website, you can return everything or just parts of your purchase within 30 days. So feel free to test our libraries!
I’m fairly certain dimension Strings is a completely different recording. Since it has individual players versus ensembles. So you can create section sizes from solo to 8 players I believe and everything in between.I will listen to the demos tonight but how different are VSL’s Synchronized Camber Strings vs. Dimension strings? We’re these different samples or is Dimension just remastered with additional functionality to add/remove players? Are the sound characteristics different?
I don't think it is, actually. To me, the library has an intimate, chamber-like sound anyways. It's not that many players, after all, and never really sounds "big" as in "cinema" big. The main thing about being able to control the single players or desks is having much more flexibility for detailed writing, divisi, etc., than you could have from "standard" string libraries. That's the big advantage of the modular ensemble - not so much that it can go from super-small to "full symphony" (which it doesn't).
One of the reasons we can provide such a 30 days return policy is the USB copy protection. It also comes with its advantages...While I complain about your dongle, I do have to say that this is great and what EVERY developer should be doing, considering the cost involved.
Is there a deep walkthrough of Dimension Strings with all the articulations?- I would also suggest to take a look at the Dimension Strings. The sound is really flexible by using only as many player as you want, and / or combining different articulations at the same time. Available as bundle or in the three pacakges for "normal", muted and sul tasto articulations.
Is it me, or does SCS sound squeaky, more rough than any Vienna Library? I absolutely love the wide palette of articulations that SCS offers, but I think they lack the homogenous sound of VSL. I'm looking for a string library that can be both sharp (col legnos, spics, etc) and sweet, homogenous (legatos, of course). Think bipolar, haha.price wise, they're relatively the same. both are great...SCS is very playable, can't speak for VSl...but it does sound great! Much more intimate due to the dry space, and slightly smaller than SCS.
