    Thumbs up Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Strings!!!!!!!!!

    Just got e'm from Kirk's site and I gotta say they are amazing. So rich and expressive. They may not cover as much ground as my beloved Gold, or some of the other libraries out there, but man they sound gorgeous.

    Just goes to show what a guy with a good ear could produce in the days of 32 megabyte samplers! I really need to check out his newer libraries.

    An oldie but a goodie. Well done Kirk!

    All the very best,

    Darren

    Darren,
    Are you talking about the Solo Strings or the ensembles?
    The reason I ask - I have the solo strings, which I like, and although I was tempted by the price of the ensembles I was a bit worried about their age.

    Tim,

    The ensembles. For $49 you can't go wrong at all. The 24 expressive patch is worth the money alone. Plus there are some nice chamber patches. Keep in mind these were created in the days of 32 meg samplers so there are some limitations. These won't replace a high end library but you will get use out of them. They really do sound lovely.

    Question Re: Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Strings!!!!!!!!!

    Is everyone here getting the Giga version, because I've seen it on the KH site priced at $99 not $49.

    It sounds like they are getting the AKAI version.
    Even at $49, I don't think it is as good value as the full solo strings which is only 199 with free shipping.

    Re: Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Strings!!!!!!!!!

    The Virtuoso strings and the solo strings two different animals. The Virtuoso strings are mostly ensembles. The solo strings for $199 are only solo instruments. I should have clarified that I bought the Akai version for $49. The gigga version is $99 but seems to include some extra programming.

    For my tastes, they are going to get a lot of use. Your mileage may vary...

    Re: Kirk Hunter Virtuoso Strings!!!!!!!!!

    I'm buying the akai version as I have several other string libs (Gold, GOS, Opus...) and I like certain patches in vertuoso strings. The sound is pretty much the same for the AKAI and Giga versions. The giga version is bigger and has more articulations from what I understand. To me the akai version is a great cheap impulse buy. I will probably buy KH concert strings (already bought the brass) next month when I have the $.
