Hello all. I\'ve become a rabid fan of the site and am slowly digesting as much as my feeble mind can handle. I\'ve noticed that most posts refer to the big boy sample libraries...VSL, East West QL, etc. but I seldom see any references to bigga gigga. The four in one horn package is fiscally attractive so I guess I want to know if anybody has had problems or if they just sound...well, good. I\'m using exs on logic for Mac so another library that has caught my attention is the exs native Pro Samples. The price seems almost too good to be true. (this is often the case, you get what you pay for, right) Another Exs that caught my eye was P.Seidlaczeks advanced orch. Any thoughts there? I know VSL will come out for EXS but I don\'t seem to see mention of Dan Dean or Garritan anywhere.
I\'m kinda new to the sampling world and at times I\'m rueing not having gone the giga route, but all in all I\'m quite happy in my Logical world. If only my mac didn\'t choke at about ten tracks! I have definitely noticed bottlenecks when using higher quality samps. I suppose I\'ll have to start writing some cute quartets instead of thundering opuses (opii ?)
My meager samps at this point are sams trumpets, sams solo french horn, everything I could get from the akai site and anything free I have been able find scouring the web. (There is a lot of poop out there!) As well, I just received my glorious 10$ sample cube from Ilio. Mmmmm, like a schoolyard pusher they might very well have me hooked.
I also just ordered Dan Dean solo brass lite and am thinking a companion piece would be either Garritan lite or Seidlaczeks for exs.
Man, I just reread this and I\'m sorry if so much of this has been covered before but any brief response would be cool
PS- Anyone in Vancouver interested in a free beer so I can pick thier brains... Ah, what the hell, I\'ll even buy lunch!
Thanks all and to all a good day
