    Whats your Swiss Army knife?

    So your stranded on a electronic island where orchestral music making is king. But right before you head off to this electric wonderland/prison you are told that you may only bring your favorite orchestral library to compose with for the next 5 years.

    A .7 mm HD mechanical pencil, an eraser, and a ream of score paper....

    Victorinox. It has seven tools...



    Oh, the desert island.

    Well, right now I'd have to say Colossus. I don't think there's another all-in-one product out there with that kind of range.

    (I'm ignoring that you specified "orchestral," because Colossus' orchestral bank is designed for real-time playing - it doesn't try to provide what we expect from an orchestral library today.)

    Interesting.

    Colossus certainly is an ambitious library to say the least.

    I don't have this - but it would probably be VSL Opus 1 and 2.

    VSL Pro Ed (If I could get a ~~~~load of computers with me)...

    Having only the VSL DVD's, although very nice, would not help me much

    Sounds like my idea of hell. I'd probably find it more fun to start an Island cult, fashion some sort of new-age sphinx and open a harem. Of course, if that all failed then I'd just paint a face on a football, call it Winston and sing duets with him until my sanity ran out.

    LOL.
    Although tempting as the harem maybe, I doubt that would aid you in finishing any music.
