    It's not bad, but with the 27 gigabyte requirement for hard drive space, I would expect a better sound. Actually, the system requirements list 17gb, but the overview claims it has 27gb.

    What are you refering to in terms of quality? The demos on the Steinberg Page, or have you had the chance to listen to it at MusikMesse?

    As I understand it the 27gb is for both 24bit and 16bit versions.
    I think it sounds interesting, from what I can hear the brass, especially the trumpets, seem to have the kind of timber I've been looking. Of course this is based on the demos on the site, which don't really show them off. I hope there'll be more demos... and a price as I couldn't find it.

    I was talking about the demos. Of course, I should probably refrain from judging anything based solely on demos. It's hard to get a feel for the sounds from only a few songs.

    For that price I think it sounds very good. The woodwinds aren't VSL but there are a lot of string and brass parts which have a very natural sound. The percussion sounds are rather nice too especially for people who don't have bigger libraries.

    Actually the real down sides are the facts that it makes you use Halion and a dongle.

    I think it sounds pretty decent to be honest. However, I think that Kirk Hunter's Emerald would give it a damn good run in the value for money stakes!

    As usual with Steinberg stuff it's overpriced. (IMHO)

    I think this will be quite interesting. I heard that the Symphonic
    Orchestra will include all samples of the String Edition 2 and that
    there will be an upgrade offer for String Edition 1 to it.

    Can't wait to find out how much that might be...

    String Edition 1 uses the same old samples as the new String Edition 2! It has only a new halion player...
