Goliath simply bolsters that functionality, making it an indispensable tool that you will reach for time and time again when nothing else works. It will become your Swiss Army knife of composing, and it's General MIDI compatible!

Massive Collection of Sounds

I would have rated this 5 stars - but the install process was a very difficult (as it was for installing EW Ghost Writer and EW Dark Side,) which includes utilizing the iLok USB security dongle/licensing thing. All a head ache.Aside from the above, this product is a great an vast collection of all things symphonic. I was surprised at the amount of misc. sounds and percussion available with this product as well. Very cool. I'm a guitarist, primarily, so having the option to include any number of acoustic instruments is just what I wanted. Even more amazing to me was the capability to create your own combination of sounds (which, by the way, can be combined from all EW products) into something of your own. This was NOT expected and it makes Goliath that much more valuable to me! Basic editing of sounds is available (Attack, release, pan, etc.) as well as a lot of reverb options. Combined with the option of mixing many instruments together is excellent and mind boggling to imagine how many unique iterations one can come up with.I have no issues with latency on my computer - i7 proc, 8 gigs ram, Windows 10... I've heard/read that people CAN have issues, but aside from taking a few moments to load each sound, it runs smooth. When I purchased this in 2013(?,) I had no idea what I was doing. A Sweetwater Sound tech assisted me to find a proper interface with my Midi Capable key board (just using my ancient 61 key Korg Triton.) So I bought a PreSonus Audio Box USB. Works very smooth. And I'm glad I discussed what I was attempting to do before buying Goliath. (BTW, I'm not a paid shill. I just like the product - enough to write this anyway.) Cheers
