I purchased this plugin a while ago. You pay for what you get, and I think this is a lot for just a plugin, but it's worth it. I love it. It has every style you would want your choice of instruments to play, and more than enough string combos to choose from. Don't get this unless you are serious into MIDI though. It's easy to get sound going, but as far as the editing and everything needed to make the note transitions, and patterns blend well and sound real, it's hard. The samples are beyond quality, but it sure does take some time to get what you want. There are so many variables you can change, and thats whats good about it. If you master this plugin, you are going to be making some money.
