IK has a steep discount on the Miroslav 2 CE Philharmonic: $39. The instruments can be used with Sample Tank and there's also a dedicated plugin that comes with them. The plugin works well for all that's music related but here at least crashes when the parameter button is clicked. Knowing the very small number of params in IK plugins, I do not mind at all. I run it in Xubuntu 18.04 with wine staging 4.5 and linvst from git (around January 2019)

I have this version from a bundle, running in a Puppy linux (Bionic 64)
in an older wine 3.x It has 4 very nice, and varied pianos,
which by the gui's multi-timbrality, can be layered and balanced
together for a wide wide range of piano sounds. Add some subtle marimba or harp etc
It has a pair of classical guitars that are also fun to play.
Even the English Horn is well done. Plenty of strings
and variations, with multi's on the major instruments.
High on the ease-of-use and quality-results charts,
a bargain at $39 8)

Yes, one of the most striking aspect, when compared for instance to Sample Tank 3 and 4, is that it loads sounds very quickly, light on system resources, while having a very high quality output. I guess that by not having to cater about all sample possibilities (electric guitars and basses, loops of various kinds, drums, etc...) the use of resources is more focused.
