I've heard alot about the Miroslav Orchestra plugin. Does anyone have any other good suggestions for great full orchestra plugins?

Wallander WIWI + a sampled string library.

For what kind of music? A library that sounds great on a concerto grosso probably won't be appropriate for an action film score, and vice versa.

I am open to all suggestions! I've heard good things about East West also.

This. String library being either LASS or something from Vienna repertoire.

If i'm not mistaken, you've got

- Brass ans woodwinds from WIVI,

- Strings fron LASS or VI,

- you'd need the Orchestral percussions for a complete Symphony orchestra ?

- i'm i wrong ?

Well he can get Vienna Special Edition bundles to get everything, then he could mix&match with WIVI to get an even thicker sound.

- maybe it would be a bit more reasonable to "simply" add an orchestral percussion lib like some dedicated vienna stuff ??

- looks like a huge bundle to me :o !

Miroslav philharmonik is very dated now and based on 15-ish year old sampling, so to be honest, it's probably one of the least attractive options out there, unless you a) - can get it very cheap (I think some Canadian store was selling it for $99 recently) and you b) - just want to play around with some orchestral sounds, it's not really worth it.
Good quality sampled orchestra instruments don't come cheap so it really depends on your budget?
