    Any really good woodwinds library around ?

    Hi everyone !

    I\'m looking for the best possible (at reasonable price if possible) woodwinds library...

    Is there anything which wood be the \"Project Sam\"or the \"Garritan\" equivalent for woodwinds ?

    Thanks for reading...

    Vienna Symphonic Library\'s Performance Woodwinds are the best I\'ve heard (around 1000$). Runner up would probably be Westgate Woodwinds (200$). There aren\'t many sample options in the woodwind world.

    Have you looked into any of Dan Dean\'s stuff? I\'ve always been impressed by what I heard. Prior to VSL, it seems like every time I was impressed enough with a user mockup to ask about the winds it turned out to be DDWW. Plus, they are packaged and priced so you can buy instrument at a time, and I think there are lite versions too. In any case, definitley worth checking into imo. If memory serves: www.dandeanpro.com

    Best of luck,
    mike

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">How does one purchase just the VSL Perf. set Woodwinds? Aren`t they bundled up in the whole Perf Set.($2500)? Wondering, Rich

    A compromise to get a relatively decent woodwinds library may be to go with Opus 1. The articulation list, though not like the complete VSL series, is still relatively impressive. Plus you get some of the other sounds of the orchestra with performance sets intact as well:

    Hey thanks a lot everyone for the good advices !
    I remember buying my copy of \"Sam Horns\" thanks to advices on this forum and god I wasn\'t disapointed at all [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I guess I\'ll have to listen to demos of the mentionned libraries above, and wait to Lux\'s first impressions on Dan Dean\'s library [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    (although right now I\'m a bit short on money and would go more for $200 than for $1000 [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )

    Thanks again people !

The Performance Set is where you\'ll find the performance patches (for use with the Legato Tool) of the VSL Woodwinds.

    The VSL Woodwinds and Brass set contains no performance patches.

    Of course, Opus 1 covers most of the performance patches of the woodwinds you need. See list of articulations.

    Can anyone who has the EWQLSO Woodwinds give an opinion on them?
