I have some weird priorities in my search for a sample library. I would really appreciate advice from people who know the offerings better than I do. - I don't want to make mockups of pieces. All I care about is hitting keys on my keyboard and hearing a high quality solo instrument sound come out of my computer with little latency. - My system resources (4GB RAM, 1.8 GHz Core i7, SSD) wouldn't handle anything too demanding, and I'm not planning to have a dedicated 2nd machine for this. - I don't need any special articulations (not even pizz). I can hear the effects and bowings I want; I just want a nice legato sound while I play around. - I only need western orchestral instruments (I do need wind doublings, at least down to alto fl, bass cl, english horn & contrabassoon). For percussion, I only need vibr, mar & glock. I was even thinking about just buying a good standalone grand piano instrument (so it would be as if I were just using an acoustic piano for composing -- not trying to have other instrument sounds at all). But I thought I'd ask here to see if there's some broader library I might like. Budget: I haven't done enough research yet to know what my budget needs to be. (I just heard about some prize money and could use all of it for this [1000 USD] if I had to.) I'm not interested in buying Sibelius 7 for its sounds (was suggested in another thread). Thank you for any thoughts!
