I'm sure this has been debated but I am having trouble finding any recent comments. I was thinking about getting Chris Hein Horns volumes 1 and 2 (solo and sections) but have heard some good things about First Call Horns. I hate to admit it but I am hoping one of these libraries would have some section patches that I could use to just add some nice stabs etc. Of course I would eventually want to really dig in and compose with individual instrumentations to get a real big band orchestartion but need will need to learn this over time. It's sort of like comping a string section playing chords instead of doing it like the real pros line by line.
Any thoughts on a great Brass library that is around $500?
All the very best,
