i must say..... i bought the EWQLSO platinum 'cuz of the great price. i am super impressed. if U are familiar with the musical terms employed it's actually quite quick to use, altho' U will be limited sometimes because U only have a certain amount of articulations to choose from. in this regard VSL wins hands down. but the sounds in EWQLSO are stunning. i'm totally hooked and am getting the update along wwith ra and the symphonic choirs.
