Frankly the tone alone of these strings is so appealing it is an immediate buy. Since it is advertised as not being a core workhorse library I would expect it to be $299 max with an introductory offer.
hahah that would be an insane price.
It's effectively 2 libraries in one, a 40-ish piece string orchestra and a 20-ish piece one. Each of those may not be a "workhorse" but they do have true legato, sustains, spiccato, and 3 mic positions. Already we're getting into the territory of roughly competing with certain other libraries available at $249 and $299 although it's not an apples to apples comparison.
BUT... then on top of that "2 very basic workhorses" library there's a chamber size high strings section with true con sordino and legato, trills and tremolos sampled up to an octave, chamber string flautandos, pizzicatos, several different kind of "ethnic portamento" strings, sound design patches, aleatoric cluster sustains and shorts, and the remaining 1/3rd of the library we haven't seen yet!
And everything is sampled with a beautiful tone and emotion!
I will be pleasantly surprised if this is cheaper than LASS, BST, etc. Afflatus may not be thoroughly deeply sampled "vanilla strings" like those libraries but it could easily end up being just as large a chunk of your SSD.
