Sample Modeling and old VSL solo brass
Are you referring to the VSL solo brass found in Kontakt Factory Full?

I checked those out yesterday and some of the patches sound usable as a background layer.
I wasn't sure if anyone still uses those.

VSL has a VI player collection. It came before the Synchronized versions. They are still quite good, and can be had for a reasonable price. Look at the Vi Single instruments list. https://www.vsl.co.at/en/Products/Product_List

They're not that limited, if you're willing to tweak them a little with the sips and wips scripts
what is sips and whips? There are limited articulations, no legato, no real dynamics. Are you saying you can add those things with a script? I've used the brass before, and sounded good...just don't remember having a lot of options.

A forum search will turn up a good number of fun links!

Sips and Wips can add legato and vibrato, which I will probably play around with and see how good I can make it sound.
The tone is pleasant to me, and not harsh or synthy.

Seems like they are all just one dynamic layer though.

I don't know if you remember Big Bob on this forum (RIP), but he was a master Kontakt programmer who either created or had a hand in the creation of a series of scripts designed to give life to older instruments. He created some scripted legato that sounds excellent on the legacy VSL brass. Can it compete with other libraries? Not really. But you could make it work if you tried.

Search the forum for SIPS and WIPS. You'll find more info.

You start with a Majestic Horn one late friday night, only to wake up monday morning, to find the entire place’s a mess, your head’s in a pizza box on your Komplete Kontrol 88, you slowly raise your head and there it is: a mockup of some Holkenborg chune is still barely visible on your now broken 4K widescreen. What’s on all those tracks? JXL brass? How’d that get on my system….
