Monkeying with libraries
Now that you mention it, the legacy directory has a lot of hidden gemsOh, since this is Spitfire, I must mention my delight at what is probably a relatively little known patch in their libraries: Albion Legacy's muted piano patches! I've had a great time getting my Goldsmith on with that sucker! Think Capricorn One, First Blood, etc.
To stick back to the previous feud, I do think that some people are mistaking the collaboration of Spitfire & HZS, the composer itself (which I like a lot BTW), and the library as a tool.
Buying HZS doesn't mean necessarily that you're a fan-boy or trying to mimic Hans Zimmer.
You're just buying a composition tool, no ? (which I sadly won't since I'm just amateur composer without any music income haha).
After all, I've got a Stratocaster and never tried to sound like Jimi Hendrix or Eric Clapton (though I confess for David Gilmour ).
Then it's up to the composer to be creative by writing skills or further processing of sample.
...Or not creative at all, if your director urges you to sound like Hans.
