Brendon, that demo sounds fantastic. I am comparing it to several brass orchestra recordings and it sounds very close to the real thing. I could probably be fooled by it if no one said anything honestly.

Very impressive work. Thanks for sharing.

I had some more time to revise/program Hymn to the Fallen. So here's a second run through, along with a quick excerpt from Adventures on Earth (with CSS and CSSS). Been having a lot of fun with this library as I learn it. Can't wait to apply it to my own original music!

ET excerpt sounds tremendous! I adore the legatos in this library. Just need to add a bit of tempo modulation (stringendo) and it really would sound quite real.

Can I ask what reverb you are using on these? Sound great!

Sounds great! Adventures on Earth is one of my favorite pieces on the planet. I got to guest conduct the Brooklyn Symphony a few years ago and I was adamant that I was doing "Adventures on Earth" which got a bit of a push back because they're primarily a classical orchestra - they never did any pops before. But I kept pushing and they relented and decided to have a whole JW pops concert instead and they did Close Encounters, Star Wars, etc.

But yeah, I know that piece up, down, backwards and sideways! I still have my giant score book that's marked to the hilt with pencil from all the sectionals. Your demo sounded pretty awesome! It was just anti-climatic that you cut it right before the big trumpet announcement! hahaa I have a coupon for a loyalty upgrade. I was hoping to sit on it until after New Years but I have an emotional connection to Adventures on Earth...you're messing up my plans here!

I just did a quick and dirty mockup of the first few bars of Flag Parade from Star Wars The Phantom Menace to test out the library. It handles the fast trumpets surprisingly well.

Very nice!! Well done! But what is this "gate" like artifact at the end of the track?

These tracks sound wonderful. Thanks to everyone posting demos here. I’d like to know what mic positions you are using (aware that some external reverb has been used on some of these). I’d just like to better understand if I’m hearing close plus reverb or just a Room mic, etc.

You tried the rising strings part with CSS yet? I felt they did a fricking great job on that, when mocking them up.

Wow sounds great, i'm definitely buying this now. Did you manage to create a script for Reaper with the different delay times for CSB Caleb?

How well do you think CSB could handle some exposed brass like this? Exposed brass moments are some of the toughest things to get right with samples.

You are all making it very difficult for me to wait for MSB...

At least the CSB deal won't expire. Alex is the man!

Thanks.

Any release date announcement for Audiobro's MSB ?

I'm also looking forward to their LASS 3 Release next year.

I haven't purchased CSB yet, but I think it might just be wise to buy CSB regardless of what's coming later. It should be a solid, and very useful brass library to have, especially I get it at discounted price.
A friend contacted their support and was told they would continue to release details (including price, demos and videos) in the next months, as they approach release.

If only I could justify buying all the new brass but the truth is that I already have some many libraries sitting in my hard disk that the only reason I'd get another one is if it was something truly innovative. I have high hopes for MSB but in case it turns out to be a stinker, I can always buy CSB for $279.

No, but I'm going to give it a run through after I get CSB. I have the score sitting on my shelf and I'm going to go pull it down.
