Back to topic: it's fine to have the Orkester Sound Bank in Reason for free, but if you need more you should consider providers who are specialised in this kind of stuff, e.g. the Miroslav ReFill! Did you ever think about how expensive it is to record an orchestra? I can't emagine the price Props whould charge us for Reason if professional orchestra samples would be included!
The Miroslav Refill totally underwhelmed me. I was prepared to buy it however when I listened to the sounds I decided it was not worth it. I realize a proper recording takes a lot of money, time and effort however I'm not asking for a huge massive library, I'm rather asking for a decent collection of GOOD sounding samples of all kinds of orchestral instruments and sounds (strings, brass, horns, choirs etc.).
There are some really expensive specialized sample libraries out there, one for choirs alone costs something like USD 800.- however this provides me with one specific area only and getting a full orchestra sample library selection can easily start to cost a fortune. For a non-professional total overkill. I'm looking for something in the middle, Miroslav simply does not cut it for me, Orchestra soundbank is very basic and so is many others and also, ideally I would be looking for proper Reason Refills in any case and not some Kontact library since I'm using Reason only.
One more thing, actually creating a Reason specific stock library or even a dedicatd sample based RE should prevent piracy and therefore a could be fincially worthwhile. As we know from some other thread, most normal sample libraries get pirated big time in any case so that about 50% or so of the potential revenue goes down the drain. That would not be the case for a Reason stock refil or an RE
