I've no doubt that VSL Libraries are the best orchestral libraries there are - but their product line is so confusing, how can anyone navigate it wha know what to buy? Furthermore, they are so expensive, and they change and update it SO often, that many are reluctant to buy because they fear their huge investment will rapidly go out of date and can't ne upgraded any more.

As siad. VSL are surely the best in the business, but unless one has vast amounts of money - they are ou of reach to the masses; and surely scaring off all existing customers but the richest of them.

VSL need to simplify their line hugely; radically drop their price in these tough financial times; and stop updating their libraries in ways that invalidate existing product lines from them.

As a user of the older Horizon Opus series, I have to say that Synth_Fan is spot-on. Occasionally, I consider updating my older library to the new configuration, but I can never figure out what I'm getting that I don't already have (besides the new interface). They have a little upgrade matrix on their site, but it doesn't seem to make any sense either... Plus it doesn't particulary offer up any noticable discount for updating.

I don't know -- I think I'm pretty technically savvy, but I can't make heads or tails out of it all.

They may indeed be "the best", but I've gotten good results out of a combo of other sample packages that are much more organized, more sensibly priced, and with a clearer and more cohesive upgrading path.
