Of all the cd-roms/sample cd's you've purchased which ones have you enjoyed the most? Which ones have sucked.

Hi,

I actually have almost all of the Roland L-CD series. I love them all. Great samples. My next purchases will be some Spectrasonics.

Hi again...

Ok, and ya, I just wanted to mention to the previous post'er...

Bangin Beats is $10 for a *floppy* of samples. Ok... kinda useless for pros...
A 100MB Zip Disk of samples is $350. This is nuts too.

Try looking at the Spectrasonics or Ilio libraries, you get more for your money. And guaranteed "pro".
Regular price on Roland L-CD Libraries is $295 for 200MB+, just a little better than the $350 for 100MB, no? Sales on these are $29!
Musician's Friend has the L-CDX CDs (400 to 800MB of samples) at $179 to $269. Can't beat that...

David

Eric Persing from Spectrasonics is certainly a pro sound designer with years of experience behind him. I would use his products with confidence that they would be of the highest quality.
