The Montage Expanded download looks very interesting to me. Was curious about others thoughts on this who are using it.
Thank you in advance for any information.

The 'Expanded' library is nice, I use a lot of the stuff in it. I wonder about your concerns though, simply download it and put it into your Montage (via USB memory stick) as a Library file, use it and see what you like or dislike. If you don't like it at all simply delete it. The Montage has room for 8 library's, so it's not taking up much space. Give it a go, I'm sure you'll like it.

Its a really nice compilation from Easy Sounds, I had and ended up buying FM-Xperience pack. I am very impressed with the quality of the work, they really get the Montage FM-X engine to shine in the pack. I havent tried any of the others..... but the expanded pack gives you a nice taste of what EasySounds and Montage can do. Right now I have 2 additional libs, the Motif legacy lib...which is fun to Montage up by adding assignments superknob etc, and then FMXpereience where adding some new FM-X parts just add so much to the performances.
