Orange Tree Samples Group Buy

I'm really not in to screeching rock, but more middle of the road pop. Which Orange Tree Sample electric guitar library would suit me best? Texas Twang or Stratosphere or something else? I need to decide before the end of the Orange Tree Samples Group Buy.

    Either of those two, or Strawberry would meet your needs, but I can't say which YOU would prefer.
     
    All the guitars are sampled clean, (from the pickups) so you can either use the built in FX /amp sim presets or roll your own. There are great sounds straight out of the box, or you can turn off the Kontakt effects all together are rout through another amp sim like Amplitube, TH3 or Guitar Rig so they are all capable of a huge range of tone.

    Strawberry is the one I usually reach for first. I, too, tend to hold my screeching down to a minimum. But Strawberry can do that, too - if you want it to. 
     
    However, if I could only have just one OTS electric guitar, one that I'd be able to use in nearly any project, it would be the Rick 12.
     
     


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    I'd vote for dracus, it's very well rounded and versatile. Strawberry is fine as well.

    Many thanks , guys. Great food for thought.
    Is there any merit in buying a more recently issued library BECAUSE it is newer? In other words, are the earlier ones on a par with the newer ones in their functionality, quality, etc?

    to be honest, I have strawberry and dracus, and strawberry (older) gets much less use. You might youtube some reviews so you can hear them in action.

    Good question. The answer is that OTS has routinely updated older products to add new features. Last year every library got the latest scripting engine, including the oldest one in the collection. This way, every guitar has essentially the same user interface and basic capabilities.
     
    There are small differences between instruments, but they're intentional and reflect each guitar's personality. The oldest library (Strawberry), for example, has a pinch harmonic articulation that the newest library (Texas Twang) does not have.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    I'm using Orange Tree for a lot instruments except the guitars. ( I'm a guitarist.) I'm using their Upright Bass, Evolution Grand ( which is a pretty great Piano ), Vibes , Marimba, all great stuff. I have the Harp coming on this coming group buy. - thinking about the flute samples too.

     . . . dang you, now I have to go investigate Strawberry . . . and the OTS demos usually put the hook right into my mouth. I have 5 of the OTS Guitar libraries, just not this one, yet.

    If it helps, just know that Jaco Bass found its way onto my hard drive, along with 3 of the others.

    Three other basses? Good, that means you also got the best one (that would be the Rickenbacker).
     
    4 hours after downloading, I've just completed my first Jaco track. I cheated, as I already had the track recorded, using Trilian's fretless bass. Just had to go through and replace keyswitches and it's done. To get a similar tone, I used the plucked nki with neck pickup and a simple TH3 setup. Didn't care for the built-in amp sims.
     
    The slide feature was a little disappointing, as that was my main reason for buying the instrument. Not a slam on Mr. Schlaepfer, though - nobody else has yet mastered bass slides in any other Kontakt instrument, AFAIK. Still, Jaco will be getting a lot of use here.

    Oh, not 3 other basses, but three other different instruments! I, too, am done for this month! I will take another look at the other basses with the next sale.

    I have been hoping Greg will revisit this library at some stage, its certainly a nice one but could be improved. My other option is Ilya Eftimov,s fretless which I got in a fire sale way back, its different enough to be complimentary but I think Jacko has it beat.
