    Sample libraries are just too big now, and much too expensive. I bought a used alto sax for $200 and I created my own sample library that has every note and every type of playing I do in it, and it’s less than 100mb in size. What could they possibly be doing to get to 14gb (just for vol 3)? What is the size for all 3 volumes, 40-50gb? What a waste of disk space.

    Also, with the high cost of the software, it’s cheaper just to buy the actual instruments (used) and record them yourself. Of course, most people are too incompetent to do that, so they are taxed for their lack of talent by being forced into expensive software such as this.

    I don’t have anything against this particular sample library, but all sample libraries of this size and cost are not even remotely appealing. Who actually buys this stuff (not pirates it) and why? I would like to know. Really.

    It’s great if your sampled instrument works for you, but don’t forget that the Chris Hein library actually has tons of instruments.

    Buying all the instruments used for this library would not be cheaper for sure.

    They also used 18 different playing techniques and up to 8 velocities per note.

    I’m not really a fan of big sample libraries myself, but seeing as I can’t play any brass instruments myself I don’t know any other way I can have realistic sampled instruments without getting a library like the Chris Hein one.

    @Cyka For many people who do music for a living, *time* is a big factor, and they’d often gladly pay (which includes considering sampling services such as yours) — so I wouldn’t dismiss anyone as incompetent without substantiating specifics. It’s more important to learn what someone’s needs are.

    Your generalizations aren’t useful, and as for “Who actually buys this stuff”, for instance, see the testimonials @ http://www.soundsonline.com — all of EastWest’s flagship libraries are at least several gigabytes in size, which isn’t that big when you consider you can buy 1.5TB hard drives for US$100.
