It is a rarity that I would use solely one instrument for a sound. There were times I had used a sole patch and I found the quality good. You have to know though that I am hyper critical of sound.
Anyway, I think kontakt is good. A loooooooot of people use it and there is a lot of additional libraries available for it. I think you want it but just need a nudge to pull the trigger. I don't think you will be dissatisfied, I wasn't and I would tell you if I was. Just what I wrote above.

jaslan wrote:Yes. If you buy Komplete, you will get everything you would get if you bought Kontakt (i.e. the all the factory content) PLUS several more add-on libraries (pianos, Vintage Organs, MM Bass, Retro Machines, Studio Drummer, and others).

Mmmmmmm, so surely everone is just going to spend the extra £99.99p and purchase KONTAKT 9 ?? i mean if you get all those extra bundles for another mere hundred quid !!

In other words, if i can only use 3rd Party VSTi's which utilise the FREE Kontakt player then i will be limited in my choice of plug-ins.

You can buy specific add ons indiviaully and install them as well.

It's hard to say which ones would bug you, or that you couldn't live without. I chose the expense/complexity finally. Now that I have it rolling, I don't regret it for a second.
