    Working on cartoon mickey mousing material, curious as to suggestiongs for the best libraries with the best articulations and sound for that old school hollywood toon feel.

    Pianos, Mallets, Orch sections etc!

    Plus the symphobia libraries. They even have some presets for specifically that sound

    Cinesamples's Cine products (CineStrings, CineWinds, etc.) all have a cartoony mixer preset.

    Yes, and especially Lumina
    But as said previously, Animator is great for that kind of stuff

    Definitely ProjectSAM when it comes to Mickey Mousing! All their libraries are useful for this - the way they recorded them, the dry settings are just so useful; and Animator is essential for lockstep comedy.

    Damn, you literally just missed the sale on Project SAM Animator! It was 40% off.

    If you're referring to Hollywoodwinds (the rhythms and runs thingy), that's not part of the Cine series and doesn't have the same mic setup, if I remember correctly. :/ But it can be useful for cartoonish stuff, anyway!

    Take any ensemble based libraries you have with pizz patches. Lower the releases on them a bit to dry them up slightly and layer in the xylophone on the top voice. This will get you pretty close to that sound, as far as that trope goes.

    As for a vintage sound that can get you close to that era, Afflatus by Strezov Sampling, though expensive, has filled that particular niche very well. It can do way more than that style for sure but they did capture that vintage sound well. They even have a patch called, "The Mouse Strings Pizzicato." Haha.

    LOLOL that's awesome and thanks for the suggestion! Yeah so far i've been using my Adventure libraries with true strike {i also like their marcato strings with xylo} but i was wondering if there's more specialized stuff! Will check this ou!
