Le Lotus Bleu tells us that Legendary Collection is an expansion bank of 240 instruments for Native Intruments FM8 VSTI. It combines two libraries in a single package : Beyond Reality and FM Legends
The "Beyond reality" part offers FM expressive emulations of real instruments ( Classical, electrical, ethnic ), while the "FM Legends" part takes to new hights all the classical FM sounds ( Rhodes, EPs, Clavinets, Bells, Organs, Brass & Strings, etc )
A spokesperson told Sonic State, "On both soundsets, Nori used his incredible FM synthesis mastering skills to offer to the composer or songwriter very expressive and fully detailed instruments. Not only will this collection be useful to compose or sketch scores, blend or layer FM tones with real or sampled instruments to give them unique flavours, but the instruments alone deliver instant beauty, and present this rich and specific FM character only a few synthesizers can offer."
