It’s up to you! All internet advice is loaded and should be taken with a dollop of salt. Don’t let anyone here dictate your buying choices!The only thing I can take away from all this discussion is that I no longer have a clue whether or not I should buy the library now! I was ready to hit the Buy button but now I don’t know who to believe. Help!
For the sale prices, you could take a chance on it without regret. Hell, $119 for Brass....and $149 for the strings? That is an incredible deal IMO, just have a look at the walkthrough's on the Spitfire site (where they are being used/programmed as intended). Of course there are going to be some anomalies, but so does every library. I think this whole thread started out reasonable, but soon became the inevitable gong show. Use your own judgment, do some searching on YouTube, the demos are all there.The only thing I can take away from all this discussion is that I no longer have a clue whether or not I should buy the library now!

Good observation and very inclusive and important of course. I am also quite new on earth so maybe you can help me figure out how this whole "coming up with opinions" thing works?Oh...you're new here. That's fine.
Usually it's just mic positions for regular to professional for Spitfire. Guess they realize people will go professional if they leave out instruments in the regular version and only include them in the pro version.Double the instruments and 3 times the solo instruments plus more than double mic positions, I guess it's worth it for sure.
I bought Studio Brass and Strings (core). I know they're not meant to be a "workhorse" library, but at this price it's too good to pass up. The walkthrough vids by Paul are excellent (as are the videos by @Cory Pelizzari), I think these are great sounding libraries....but that's just my 2 cents. Both libraries have a solid place in my workflow, and will get used alongside Hollywood Orchestra among others. This whole thread is ridiculous, seriously.This is a really good point. Studio pro brass is almost finished downloading woo-hoo!
Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but for me throwing $149 or $119 - hell, even $50 - on any kind of a product that I end up not using would not be without regret.For the sale prices, you could take a chance on it without regret. Hell, $119 for Brass....and $149 for the strings?
