Very nice ending Paul! I feel already more robust, thinking to Zodiac!

Ymir/You: My personal preferences, in these times, are probably other orchestral extended techniques complementing FX Strings I. I have other libraries of this type, but end always not using any of them. As it often happens, other manufacturers make wonderfully sounding libraries, great by themselves, but of very little use in expressing one's (at least, mine) musical ideas.

FX Strings is an example of how a library sounding great by itself can also be forged into the shape of a musical thinking. You met the perfect middle ground: not as unmusical as some cold, inexpressive specialized libraries of extended techniques; neither self-playing like other too self-condescending ones. As usual, you have made a beautiful-sounding tool that can be used to make music.

So, it would be great to have something similar to FX Strings I (and Fornax?) for brass and woodwinds. Breath, soft and heavy multiphonics, bamboo sounds, blasts, jets, heavily distorted or barely audible sounds from ensembles.

Once confined to the closed circles of lovers of the most adventurous music, or in boundaries of auteur's sci-fi cinema, it seems that these conquered boundaries of sound are now free (at least at homeopathic doses) to populate contemporary cinema. We need them, and not as an afterthough.

Ein schönen guten Morgen!

May I kindly ask what would be the installed file size of the whole BBO Bundle?

Thank you, best regards.

Excluding Ymir (because it's not ready yet) it's around 490 GB installed on disk (download size is approx. 30-40% of that).

Best, Ben
