What do you think is the best ethnic library that has instruments from all over the world in one pack?
Obviously buying separate plugins for each instruments would be the best option, but that would cost a million dollars, and Eduardo Tarilonte’s libraries, which are awesome, only usually cover an era or certain section of the world, and buying all would, again, cost a million dollars. I’ve come to the conclusion that it would be best (for me, at least) to buy a bundle with lots of instruments, and then buy a few separate instruments for the hardest to replicate ones (lead instruments, bowed and so on) I’ve done some research lately and I’ve found these ones:
EastWest RA, 74 instruments (and silk, but it’s quite limited with only 25 instruments)
Best Service Ethno World 6, 320 instruments and voices
UVI World Suite, 320 instruments and voices
Garritan World Instruments, 350 instruments
All of these are in part quite old, since they’re so massive and it has taken a long time to make all of the instruments (except RA which is all old), some samples are from 20 years back, but at least Ethno World 6 has some instruments from two years back and I hear some are almost as good as separate instrument vst’s.
Do you have experience with these libraries, or do you have any other libraries to add to the list?
