My apologies if this topic is not appropriate here, but I was immensely intrigued.
VSL have pretty much covered the entire orchestral spectrum (and then some, with all the historic packs and other obscure instruments), and often multiple times, every time with fantastic and unrivalled detail and variety of samples.
I was curious if there would ever be any plans to record instruments outside of the Western orchestra?
If ever there were a VSL product of, say, a Dizi flute, with as much care and detail in the samples as they offered with their orchestral flutes; proper transition legatos, staccatos, portatos, multiple dynamics, flutter, trills, bends, grace notes, scales, arpeggios, FX, etc. etc. all in the VI Pro player with the incredible matrix system would be unrivalled in flexibility, customisability and variety.
The same could be said for other ethnic instruments, such as the Erhu, Koto, Sheng, Shakuhachi, Bagpipes, Tin Whistles, etc. etc. - there are vast swathes of options.
You could very easily usher in a new age of ethnic virtual instruments by maintaining that level of quality your samples are known for!
