    Really interested in this one (Symphonic strings evolution). Now I already have OA Chamber Evolution, and wonder if it’s not redundant ...
    Any though ?

    Symphonic Evolutions is really very different from the others because of the large ensemble. In fact, I find the grid very hard to use and really only managed to make the library work for me when I reimagined it not as an Evo but more as a set of really interesting orchestral string longs. And that's how I tend to use it, as individual longs supplementing the other longs in Symphonic Strings rather than mixed across the range as with an Evo.

    Your experience helps to set expectations, as stressing a bit over this one.
    Have Tundra, EVO3, and adding OACE. Paul T Walkthrough did not cause me to focus on 'large ensemble' issues you mention.
    40% Code may still make this some useful content …..

    If you have SSS, then SSE will expand your palette when used together. I have both SSE & OACE, I find that SSE is "smoother" sounding due to the number of players. For me, OACE doesn't have the breadth of sound that SSE has, even though they're both recorded at Air.

    Interesting.
    Now, are the Evo from SSE as easy to use (in background) as OACE evos/waves ?

    Ugh I really shouldn't be thinking about OACE too. Anyone own both OACE & HO IT and have thoughts comparing them?

    You could layer OACE and Tundra in Kontakt and have you cat walk across the keyboard and it would sound good.

    Really debating on OACE. Ugh.

    The real @whiskers appreciates your complimenting her composing abilities :)

    It also depends on the ensemble you are trying to match, because OACE is a smaller ensemble. So if you want to match SSS or any full orchestral string patch, SSE will sit better. I find the smoothness of SSE to be double edged, because often what I'm looking for in an EVO is the detail that is washed out in the larger ensemble. I think that's a reason I also find it harder to work with SSE on the EVO grid.

    Add the LABS choir patch and print it.

    Just to help out some more, one of the Time Macro choir patches would also work well.
