    Very nice!

    Do you like the Sam library better than VSL for brass, or was SAM just better for the application in this piece?

    Hi James,

    the sound and the mix is great! You´ve done a good job. But I can´t get the main melody by listening to your piece. Have you done this on purpose? But in spite of this fullness of melodies, I really enjoyed listening to it.

    Greeting,

    Thanks

    I find them both to be very useful... I think that Sam is more useful for loud stuff and VSL is super for repetitions and soft & fast passages (with the Performance set).

    That said... before I got SAM Trumpets a few days ago, I still managed to produce convincing loud passages with VSL's brass.

    Blackster, thank you. It's not a theme as such... so I was not going for a specific melody, It's been kind of an exercise in getting the sound I want from the libraries.

    I'll be back in a while and I'll post some other bits I've been experimenting with. Just trying to get realistic as I can (not started adding human elements yet tho)

    Righto... here are some bits and bobs...

    Here is a short track testing VSL's strings primarily. (with some Sam Brass at the start)

    Another all VSL ambience track.... Strings, woods and Brass (no Sam here)

    This one is an experiment with VSL's strings and brass for fast stuff (no Sam)

    it's possible to make loud stuff with vsl brass with just EQ, plugins reverb etc..

    but also loud brass stuff is a story of compositions...

    @VSL Brass & SAM:

    I guess both brass libs are very impressive and absolutely great. But in my opinion the SAM lib is a little bit sharper in the attacks - but that´s a matter of taste.

    Anyway, the quality of both speaks for itself.

    They are both very useful to have. I'm extremely happy with both libraries.

    John, I haven't got around to listening to your cuivre-4-horn.mp3 yet... i'm at the local library at the moment, so no speakers here
