    What we really need is a 7-hour Daniel James walkthrough!

    That is just way too long for me, I have never got through any of the Daniel James's marathons. But more the merrier!

    Bought and as usual download managers suck. My installation got stuck, and now I can't resume my download without requesting a reinstall through mail. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Update: Posted on their forum, and got a really quick reply. I can now retry the download. :emoji_thumbsup:

    the HZS one was actually hilarious. I'm sure he was upset because he spent quite a few quid on it - but was still funny(and he can probably look back and laugh)

    Yeah for some reason, feels like they really rushed it....Spitfire does a great job (save the latest Ambient Guitar release) of providing all you need on release day. Oh well...I still love the tones I’ve heard and am hoping for new videos and demos soon.

    So.... Yes, of course I had to buy it. Took about 70 minutes to download the full 160 GB on my fast Comcast setup.

    When I add the Notre-Dame Cathedral IR from Audioease Altiverb to any solo instrument set to close-mic it sounds AWESOME! This is a must buy library if you love symphonic brass.

    Did I mention I was impressed.

    I found that on YouTube after it was posted, but it sounds like a cut and paste job, replacing some other library with MSB. This is why I’m fine waiting a bit for demos that reflect the user taking some time to know their way around a new tool.

    That's not the best rendition of the Star Wars Fanfare I've heard.

    That is the biggest understatement on VI Control I've read.

    For me, brass is all about DYNAMISM!

    The Strings are the bread and butter of the orchestra,

    the Winds are there to be colorful and create timbral variety (which is a major reason why the rise of synths has corresponded to the decline of woodwinds but that's another can of worms),

    the Percussion is there to create accents and grooves,

    and the Brass is there to PUSH AIR and make you go wow.

    The brass can create more dynamic contrast than any string or woodwind instrument. That's their reason for existing. So brass libaries need a wide dynamic range above all, and then they also need seamless transitions across the entire range so that you don't notice the crossfading of dynamic layers or switching of articulations. Good musicianship in every sample doesn't hurt either.

    The demos of Daniel's piece and the Mahler piece are good in their respective dynamic ranges but how does the library work moving across dynamics?

    I wrote this little fanfare with CSB.

    I think this is a good test piece because it goes across all the dynamics both in short and long notes. I'm getting 80-90% of what I want with CSB but hey, always willing to buy another brass library ;)

    EDIT: Duh, forgot the MIDI! Here it is if anyone wants to give it a shot with MSB.

    Nice Noam. Am I wrong, or are the beginning trumpets a mimic of the opening oboes and harp from "Flight To Neverland"?

    Anyway, what I am hearing there, is not nearly enough dynamic range. There is some, but to my (relatively inexperienced) ears, not near enough. Maybe if there any real brass players on the forum (I think there are) they can speak about this?

    Are we really doing this again? Begging for walkthroughs and demos? I don't understand how a developer can overlook something as obvious as that. It's like they expect users to do all the work for them. Don't be cheap, AudioBro! Pay reviewers, send some NFRs, do whatever it takes but don't leave your customers hanging like that, it looks remarkably unprofessional.

    Have you heard the demos on their site? As I kinda posted before, the first one is hard to follow with anything else.

    Quality over quantity.

    As a brass player... these demos I'm hearing are not convincing me. The Star Wars and Brucker sound very far from realistic. I'll stick with what I have.

    Too bad, wouldve loved to play with a bunch of BBb Cimbassi samples since every other sample library only has F Cimbassi, but I'm not forkin out that much money for it. Love me some Contrabass Trombone samples, and I even play one :P

    The dry room and slicing (editing) of the attacks give it a machine-like quality that seems to destroy all life when you get the full ensemble going. For lack of a better description, it sounds painfully "synthy". As soloists they may be a bit better, and serve well to augment other brass libraries, but only time will tell.

    Thank you for the demo...I certainly mean no offense to you whatsoever, but this sounds just terrible to my ears. Like phasey-synthy....dang, making me re-think this thing.

    Hey Karl - as a fellow brass player I'm not convinced either. There is a caveat - I'm a brass player and I dont think samples will ever be convincing to my ears (SM Trombone is awesome but still not the real thing)..... just as Jose Herring posted earlier, he doesn't like Clarinet libraries (apart from the Herring Clarinet lol).
