well, to me the DL-products are a great addition to the special edition and sort of an intermediate to the big libraries. yet i do miss quite some instruments among the download-products, for example:
chamber strings (or strings at all... not downloadable for some odd reason)
muted trumpet (only in the SE extended version)
muted trumbone (only in the SE extended version)
stopped horn (only in the big libraries)
flügelhorn (unfortunately that is not even part of the large libraries)
i actually would rather buy these single download-instruments than getting the special-edition extended version, which then would lack some articulations anyway... plus i would have to buy instruments i know i would never use (like guitars, bassett horn, a second oboe, a second horn, etc...) i don´t really see the problem. these instruments are already there... why not add them to the download-instruments?
i really don´t understand that. on the one hand we are offered the same instrument twice as a download (flute 1, flute 2, french oboe, viennese oboe, etc...) and on the other hand some things are not offered at all as a download, like muted brass or chamber strings... appears very weird to me... hope this will change some time soon...
