Is it Solo strings? I need it for Solo pieces (like Solo violin) 

 

Joshua Bell -This is the best solo violin VST I've found. I am waiting for it to go on sale. Also, Tina Guo makes a good solo cello. I do not know of any viola  or double bass vsts -aside from the one's from VSL and EastWest. But I am sure they're out there! 

Take a listen to the Joshua Bell link. It sounds amazing.

A German company, named BestService.com, also referred to as Harmonic Subtones (?)

It's an easy to use library, easy on your computer too. I have five other solo violin libraries but this may be my go to lib because it's vibrato is faster than the others, and it has interesting articulations and EQ names, like Velvet.

No heroics, 'onnist, guv! 

But I did a lot of research and VSL was the only answer - ALL the strings, muted and open; most articulations - some are missing (like muted and sul ponte glissandi. And things like you can change articulations during playing (eg vibrato to non-vib, or either to tremolo (normal or sul ponte/tasto) using the slot cross-fader. (I didn't even know what the slot x-fader was until I watched their videos)! And you get violin and cello 2 - more limited in articulations but useful in a quartet/quintet.

I never looked back.
