    Honestly that is probably my one SFA acquisition I could do without. Haven't spent much time in it, but find the UX to be cluttered and visually/mentally overstimulating. Wish they'd gone with a cleaner paned and tabbed layout like Omni, but maybe I'm just used to that :)

    Is the Olafur Arnalds Chamber Evos worth it if you have the regular Olafur Arnalds evos?

    IMO it's the best sounding of the bunch

    Purchased Studio Orchestra Pro, Percussions and the Harp.
    I've been trying a bit Studio Orchestra Pro, love the microphones choice. It's about to take a lot of time to get the very particular sound I want, but I like having the choice. It does blend well with SSS.

    Would love to hear comparison between the two when you spend some time with it, if you're willing.

    Final ponderings...
    Maybe I should spend a little bit less on SF (no edna + kinematik) and a little bit more overall:
    Add the output bundle (overall total: 700 euro)
    Or Diva (total 375) or Omnisphere 2 (608).
    Any advice on picking up edna/kinematik above these three?

    You might like EDNA better the more you get familiar with it...it can be especially handy for pads and rhythms imo. Back during my synth phase I went ga-ga over it and had a great time. Without Kinematic it's not worth even half as much, that cartridge is its main reason for existence (I myself was told that a couple of years ago when considering purchase and it proved oh so true).

    To me it's Matt's finest hour, and that's saying a lot, as guys like him, Scarr, and Stockhausen are my favorite synth sound designers. Hollo's stuff is good, too.

    See my post above. Personally have gotten a lot more milage out of omni2 compared to edna. Earth. Also keep in mind Albions have some limited edna built in

    Omni2 has been one of my best purchases. Just my 2ยข

    Also see @Parsifal666 's post above, I might need to give it more time.

    Yow, as much as I like EDNA I'd NEVER reccomend that over Diva. Diva is right up there with Omni and Zebra as the best you can buy imo. The best for the analogue thing (though Monark is really nice as well).

    Don't miss out on HZ, as the Hans Zimmer presets (and general Dark Knight/Rises vibe) can really get the compositional juices flowing.

    Anyone has the Joby Percussion?
    I wonder how it compares to NI Symphony Series Percussion (my only orchestral percussion right now).

    Isn't Zebra much too complicated for someone who likes to tweak as little as possible (that's why the 4 macro controls in output products allure to me)?

    Perhaps.
    Though one of the allures of Zebra is the mass of really great preset makers working with it.
    Kind of like picking up Kontakt to get access to sample libraries.

    Absolutely not, the presets are fabulous imo.

    Correct.

    Maybe I need to use NKS more... Seems a lot like it. komplete kontrol just seems clunky to me.

    No, no nks.
    But Z3 isn't too far away, and is free for owners of Z2 and DZ iirc.
