    I was wondering: what's your personal record spending money on a SINGLE library/collection? Not like spending money on several parts of any orchestra one by one over time (for example), but actually purchasing the whole thing.

    I'm curious to know the average of your most notable investments! :)
     
  2. When I bought the original EW Complete Composer Collection around 2006 (I can't recall the exact name, it was before Play came out). I paid $1400 CDN and it came in a box with 40+ DVD's! Best purchase ever, it paid for itself in spades over the years.

    LASS used to be over $1000. It was a lot of money at the time but it was so much better than anything I'd used before, so it felt well worth the expense.

    That was a good investment. The most I ever spent at once was for Ark 1, and it's one of the libraries I most regret.

    I think Komplete 3 was about $1000 when I bought it ten years ago. It contained 8 instruments. A year later I bought EWQL complete composers collection. I think that was $1,500 and my most expensive.

    Ouch, I'm sorry. I'm curious, do you regret purchasing it because of the library itself, or the library+the price? (As in, it would have been good if it was cheaper)

    The Mural Bundle on a Black Friday sale. It was heavily discounted for £999, normally £1645. Still £999 is a lot of money. I don't regret it though! If you'd buy SSS + SSS extra mics + Evolutions today it would be €1597

    No, I'm a very happy man. The particular color of the sound of it is out of all the orchestral libraries the one that perfectly suits me aesthetically.

    I paid all that money for sounds I could have done with the libraries I had already. Not to mention, those strings can be pretty darn irritating imo!

    That sounds wonderful, thanks!

    I hear you. That's my (and everyone's I guess) biggest fear when investing in new libraries.

    599 dollars for Chris Hein Solo Strings. Lot of money for a student, but so worth it. :2thumbs:

    Either LASS Full or EWQLSO. Too long ago, can't remember exactly what I paid. Can't say I regret either, but I made a lot more money from EWQLSO, and as annoying as the quirks and coughs were, it was a fantastic, simple concept.
