Hi guys, this is my dilemma, ( A good one I must add). I currently own EWQLSO Gold XP, Vienna Special Edition and Horizon Epic Horns.... I want to improve my brass libraries and with the Current anniversary East West 2 for 1 sale , Platinum has now come back into the picture....yes it's 24 bit, 3 mics etc but really what are the horns and brass like, will I be of a major advantage , or should I delve further into Vienna. Dont want to make this a flame war, I know they're both great libraries...but what is really the bottom line....For me the legatos even just in Special Edition give it that edge.
Choices to buy
Platinum XP upgrade from Gold XP- 2 for 1 sale
Vienna Brass 1 or 2
Sample Modelling the Trumpet ( Seidlazek Tommassini)
Just wondering whether Platinum XP is the way to go, or invest in the new trumpet library and some more Vienna. I do like the Special Edition brass and in particular I'm looking for good Trumpets Trombones and Horns. The Horizon Epics are wonderful. With Special Edition EXT there are Epic Horns 24 bit but to dish out $600 for just the Epics and other bits and pieces I am thinking go Standard Brass 1/2 or the Platinum. How are the horns in Platinum? What is eveyone using with good results? With these sales it's so easy to get sidelined and then spend money in the wrong areas becuase of the amazing deals being offered. I appreciate anyone's advice. I'll spend up to $700/800AUD upgrading EWQLSO or spend about the same amount and get the Trumpet and maybe add a little extra with Vienna. I was so close to buying WIVI but it does'nt really grab me with the realisitic side of things, it's great particularly with exp but not for what I need....thanks everyone.
