Arctic Strings is a cinematic strings library designed from the ground up for easy to use ambient sustained strings. It features flexible scripted legato and portamento/glissando.

See Arctic Strings: Mirage for a VST/AU version.
Colourform is a Kontakt instrument designed to create picturesque organic sounds. The instrument's GUI draws a strong link between colour and sound. Each patch features 12 different sounds, that are each assigned a colour. These can then be blended and mixed in real time to produce new colours. Rather than standard knobs and sliders, this concept allows for a more visual link between what you see and what you hear. This is not to the detriment of practicality though, you will also find all of the standard volume, ADSR and filter controls, and a large selection of presets.
