    You're probably going to have to buy some other libraries. It's really hard to recommend which ones because we don't know what your music sounds like. But for starters, check out "Gypsy" which contains some really great violin articulations. As far as guitar, what do you mean by "Spanish"? Are you talking about Flamenco?

    Hi drusif, Ski's recommendation (Gypsy) is a Virtual Instrument by East West. You can buy it from any major Pro Audio retailer... so for example, my local place is here: [url]http://www.dv247.com/computer-music-software/east-west-quantum-leap-gypsy-virtual-instrument-sound-module--38333[/url] There should be full instructions on how to install it... but basically once installed you access it as you would any Instrument by creating a Software Instrument track and click on the top slot of the I/O section. From the pop-up menu you'll find it towards the bottom of the menu. Hope that helps R

    Drusif, Flamenco is a Spanish musical style which is characterized by very rhythmically-tight, virtuosic guitar playing. The strumming style is particularly distinctive. So when you mentioned Spanish-style guitar I was wondering if that's what you were going for. Gypsy's got some great violin samples, but FWIW, there's a bit of a learning curve with it.
