like the appalling junk that comes out of East West.
Well, many composers seem to find that "appalling junk" useful enough to incorporate into final mixes of soundtracks for television and motion pictures. Whatever works for a score, I guess. I do not see them all complaining on these forums, maybe they are too busy working and being successful (and I do not only mean financially) composing with those libraries. I am not an EWQL fanboy, I just try to form balanced opinions, and EWQL libraries are not exactly completely useless.
As far as people being "sick" of recognizing EastWest samples in scores, that sounds somewhat elitist and just shows how much we have started to take for granted the advances made in sampling technology. We always MUST have something new and different than the other guys have. We always MUST have a fresh, tweaked sample, or we will be labeled unoriginal. Goodness forbid someone used a stock patch from a synth, there is no way the sound designers for that product could have possibly created a useful patch out of the box, right?
Come on. [SARCASM] If we followed the same line of reasoning, then should we not get sick of always recognizing violins in symphonic compositions? And that awful and repetitive use of DRUMS in rock! And do not even get me started on electric guitars! Must rock bands ALWAYS use them? Then the 808s and 909s in electronica. Really? After all these years we still cannot come up with new, better, fresher drum samples? Bass guitars? Blah. So last century. Piano? For what? The other guy already used that on an album, therefore I cannot possibly use it ever again, or someone on a forum may sneer at me! [/SARCASM]
On a serious note, I just do not find that one line of products is simply junk, and I do not mind if composers repeatedly use a specific sample library.
To each his or her own.
