  2. Oddly enough I can't find any discernable differences in graphic quality between Kontakt 6 and Kontakt Player 7. See the attached image below. Where are the much touted graphic improvements?  Interesting that my libraries requiring full Kontakt  are loading just fine into Kontakt Player 7.

    Great point! Believe me, I’m sure that there are a lot of shoes and handbags purchases that I don’t even know about!

    What was to be your reasoning for the Komplete upgrade? This could be helpful to us. 

    Primarily for Kontakt 7 with the HiDPI browser. Once I hit 40, my eyesight fell off a cliff.  Kontakt on my new widescreen monitor looks like a postage stamp. I need a jeweler's loop to read it.  If I could get by with the free version of Kontakt 7 I would, but I've got multiple libraries that need the full version. Also it has been a few versions of Komplete since I've last upgraded so there is lots of new stuff for me.

    To be honest, I'm just a hobbyist.  I don't "absolutely" need the Komplete upgrade, but my wife needs to think that I do.

    After checking reviews on YouTube anyway I think the SC Broken Wurli is best for me. I have the advantage of not having a particular sound in mind that I'm trying to achieve, but rather I'm just looking for what my ear likes the best and I like that fat grimy sound of broken wurli. 

    I've seen some other folks heavily recommending the VReeds wurli by Acoustic Samples I think it is. I checked it out on Tube and it sounds good, but broken wurli is where it's in my case. 

    Agreed. Soniccouture's Broken Wurli is still my favorite and the most used of my Wurli collection. The tone is fantastic and the broken speaker knob (which is adjustable from none to a lot) adds a bit of a grungy vibe that can enhance the sense of realism. To my ears, this Wurli sounds very convincing as the real thing.

    Acoustic Samples' Wurli also has as a wonderful tone and is a very close second. The only downside of their Wurli is that there are no presets so that you have to dial in your sounds from scratch and then save them in a separate folder. I don't own Acoustic Samples' new VReeds, but I'm very intrigued.

    Lounge Lizard Wurli - While not quite as realistic sounding as some of the others, it does sound great in its own right. Because it is not sample based, it has a full 256 midi layers, so the dynamics are superior to any of the sampled Wurlis.  The excellent dynamics make this a very fun instrument to play. It also has a very quick load time and small footprint.

    Neo Soul keys Wurli - I've never really connected with this one. It might be that the presets are more tailored for Neo Soul rather that Funk, Blues, and Rock. The samples are however spread out over a full 88 keys so you never run out of keys like on other sampled 64 key 200A Whurlitzers.  Now that I have better options, I rarely use it.

    Scarbee 200A - At one time the undisputed king of the Wurli libraries, its tone still sounds great today. However when compared to newer Wurli libraries it's deficiencies become apparent. If you already own Komplete, this is still a decent option. When placed in the mix, you might be just fine with the results.

    Toontrack EZKeys Wurli - While it does in fact sound like a Wurli, when compared to any other library, it sounds pretty weak.
