I\'m sequencing some tracks for a Motown -style Christmas show. Need advice on the best sounding R&B horn samples (trumpet, alto, tenor, t-bone, bari) I don\'t need loops or licks, just decent sounding horns.
Good luck, Edgar. I just got Quantum Leap Brass yesterday (big sale THIS WEEK, if you decide to go for them now IS the time...) and as far as I know this is the closest to R&B brass in the current Giga market.
I also recently got the Memphis Horns from Illio. It is entirely lick-oriented, but the licks are extremely authentic, and many notes in the phrases are well-separated and articulated, so with a little work you probably can come up with a usable set of individual samples.
Best I know of at the moment. (Phantom Horns is also licks, but the demo also sounds good.)
Thanks for the help. I\'ll try Quantum Leap. As for Memphis horns, this sounds real good to me, but unfortunately I don\'t have the time to create my own samples from lick-oriented stuff. Deadline and all that...
