I\'m just starting up with orchestral sampling. Doing some Akai sampling now and plan to transition to GigaStudio eventually.
I currently have Kirk Hunter Virtouso and Dan Dean Strings so I am basically happy with the strings portion of my virtual orchestra.
But I am really in need of Wind and Horn instrument samples. A friend of mine wants to sell his Miroslav Vitous Akai collection to me, but I noticed the winds/horns are not looped and are actually panned either left or right? Will centetring these panned intruments in my sampler/sequencer fix this? Is having looped intruments a disadvantage.
Do you have any wind & horn instrument recommendations, preferably a collection (or two) that has it all?
Thanks for your patience with this novice sampler newbie.
