    KH Emerald: WOW!

    I've only loaded up a string section so far but have to say these strings are very very playable.

    They respond to my touch and to my energy the way my best guitar does.
    There is no doubt as to where the timing is when I'm using these.

    One "might" possibly see this as *unforgiving* but I, personally, really appreciate playing an instrument that is extremely responsive to the subtle nuances of physical and emotional posture.
    This library is going to make me a better musician.

    Thank you Kirk!

    One night with 4 of your instruments has reopened a specific internal space that has been relatively unavailable and out of reach with other samples that I use.

    I'm looking forward to countless hours of exciting, and yes, challenging exploration of self and music, with this exquisite tool you've provided.

    Steve,
    I had a chance to load up the free Chamber violins yesterday, and they are very musical as well. The detaches's are great, and under 'Kirks Favorites' there's a mod controlled dynamic Light Vib to heavy Vib patch, it's very expressive. All the patches whether Legato or not seem to connect in between notes very well, something I really appreciate!

    Hi Rick,

    Thanks for the tip. I'll have a look for that one under 'Kirks Favorites.'

    I've been working with some instruments form Emerald and Chamber Strings
    for about the last 6 hours.
    The 24 Strings B are smooth as silk and very easy to play.
    The chamber strings are pretty hot also. Very fast runs are now doable for me.
    I'm having fun!

    I have to add my wow, as well. These samples sound excellent.

    Would anyone posts some examples of the chamber strings in action?

    Thanks,
