I will eventually be looking at acquiring a good woodwind library. I\'ve narrowed it down to Dan Dean\'s Solo Winds or the Xsample Winds. Now, given that, here\'s what I need:
I need, of course, high quality sounding stuff. I have to have both non-vibrato and vibrato versions of the instruments..and if I can cross-fade between the two, that would be cool, but not necessary. Also, I\'m an articulations/effects freak. Each instrument DEFINITELY has to have trill and glissandi (especially the flute and oboe). Gotta have the different playing styles too.. staccato, etc.
Basically I\'m looking for a really good woodwinds library that\'s as flexible as SAM Horns. Did I mention SAM Horns rules? The cluster swells are awesome.. so are the glissandi, and other effects. Man oh man.
Anyway.. recommendations? Thanks!
