Thanks Jaslan,

i greatly appreciate your time, experience and encouragement.

i am actually going AGAINST what many people have advised me to do, but those who recommended the alternative path (of Kontakt) should not feel their time has been wasted because their knowledge sharing has helped me to arrive at the decision i have finally made.

There is a motto in sales :-

"The customer is always RIGHT" !! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I think i would've done the same thing in your situation. Buying instruments in quantities like Komplete doesn't work for me. It takes time to learn an instrument, and if you get 20 at once there is no way you can use them all to their full potential.
Software: Steinberg Cubase Artist 6.5.5 64-bit.
Hardware: HP elitebook 8530b with W7 Home 64-bit

Analog: Alesis M1 - Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL - Studio Projects C3 - AKG K612Pro
Instruments: Yamaha DTX750k - Yamaha MO-6 - Waldorf Blofeld - Korg Wavedrum WDX.

My humble contributions to what could be considered music.

Ta Strophoid,

One of the things which appealed to me (orchestrally) about the Project Sam Essentials is that they come with lots of PRESET combinations of Sections (eg. Upper Strings with Low Woodwinds, Full Winds, Violins & Violas with Clarinets, etc etc). Meaning the combinations are configured and sound superb already. This will save me many hours and means that i can just call up the combi and start making music straight away. At the musical intellectual stage of intelligence i am currently at, this will be more than enough for me.

Ta,

Paul
