So I think everyone at this point is aware that many of the samples in the Hollywood series, due to the nature of the samples, have late attacks that lag behind the beat. Especially slur patches, which can lag behind by about 40 milliseconds. The solution is simple, you just have to set the pre-delay in your MIDI channels in your DAW to a negative value, like -20 ms.

Now, the problem is that each articulation in all the libraries varies drastically in terms of how late the attack is - so I propose that Eastwest does some homework/testing and include in the manual a list of suggested pre-delay settings for all of the patches in the libraries. This will save a lot of people a lot of time, hassle and guess work. Let me know if I can clarify this at all. Thanks!

That sounds like a lot of busywork for the EW staff, and I wouldn't envy them taking on this task, but I will definitely +1 this for the sake of user convenience.
