I am needing to supplement a live orchestral ensemble with sampled brass in a live situation. I am needing brass with bite, but with a legit, classical orchestral sound. I have heard great things about both Dan Dean and ProjectSAM libraries, but does anyone have any personal experience with either? Pros or cons? (Since I will be playing live, I will need it to sound good without a lot of tweaking.)
Also, I have the option of using Mach Five or Kontakt for this project. I know this is a sample library page, but any opinions on either, especially as far as stability and importing of samples? I'd really appreciate any advice!
