I picked up the SE 7 (historical instruments) package during BF and am enjoying it quite a bit, but it's kinda lacking in one particular group of popular renaissance and baroque era instruments: lutes. I would love to have a VSL library for lutes, theorbo, baroque guitar, etc. Any plans to expand the plucked instruments section?

The way I understand it, the historical instruments are a work in progress like all the other product lines VSL offers. For example, First you had Solo Strings, then Orchestral, then Chamber, etc. so be patient.  Good things come to those who wait.

I don't want a Lute. And I don't want an baroque guitar. I want ...

... well, VSL have recorded it when they made the Blue Planet Soundtrack.

Check the Link and Go to 16:53 and 17:03 ... :) ... there it is what I want!

Among the many, the one by Bolder Sounds is my preferred one for realism and control. It's recorded dry, so it can mix well with VSL's historic instruments.

Thanks. I did not know this firm. I wanted to buy a bagpipe anyway. These sound pretty good.
