Cinematic Studio Brass?

Strings was released in June 2016, and Brass in Dec 2018. If woodwinds takes the same amount of time to develop, it'll be mid 2021 before it drops.
Certainly hope not! But on the other hand... They took their time to make a wonderful product out of CSB. If it takes them a year more to do it, so be it.

Maybe I'm losing it but I thought Alex said the brass and woodwind samples were recorded back to back, that the brass was released first, and that woodwinds would be released by the end of this year.

He also explained at some point that the winds were the largest of all the libraries that CS has done so far.

Cinematic Studios hasn't released a clunker yet. So I'm sure the winds are going to be awesome.

It really is just an expensive hobby for me
I just bought the brass a few days ago and had a small issue that i emailed Alex about....and i tagged the end of my email about the woodwinds.

His reply was this and quote:


We're working hard on woodwinds at the moment and we're hoping to get CSW released by the end of the year; we're a very small team so it does take us a while between releases.


That was just a few days ago
 
I've been needing a proper Woodwinds library for ages now. Still don't know whether to wait for CSW or just go for Spitfire Studio Winds or even Symphonic winds while they're on sale.
 
I don't think talking is that necessary. :) Would be really interesting just to watch your workflow, how you mix the orchestra, etc. :thumbsup:

Hm, interesting, when I was choosing Valhalla reverb, after demoing all available I chose VVV, I had liked its sound the best, but in the end it seems it doesn't matter that much since Room sounds really good in your mixes. How much of a wet signal do you use? I tried to match my reverb setting with Attack of the Clones score and ended up somewhere around 30% on VVV together with 24% on Lexicon MPX. (I use two since I like the sound of them combined, it brings a little more density.)

Listening to CSB really makes me want to try it, I only have Cinebrass, but CSB lines feel more coherent and tight.
Funny you say that, because Valhalla Vintage Verb (I assume that's what you meant) was my favourite, but I for some reason went with Valhalla Room.
When I send an instrument to a mixer track with Reverb on it, the Reverb is at 100% wet and I just alter the send percentage depending on how far I want it to sound. Honestly, I just automatically just drag the send slider down a little bit for everything and leave it as it is, lol.

Well the Solo Strings weren't anything to write home about. And their Studio Piano isn't very good (imo). I do expect though that their WW's will be another great library like the Orchestral strings and CSB. They've probably learned everything they need to know now in doing the brass!

I hope the winds come out later this year, only things left I need to complete my template are winds and percussion. Winds will either be Berlin or Cinematic Studio, depending on how good CSW turn out to be, and percussion will either be Spitfire Percussion or again Cinematic Studio.

With Cinematic Studio Brass my only issue is that it drains my RAM, having any more than 2 or 3 tracks with any of the patches can cause my Logic and Mac to freeze, I know it's only 16GB ram but I really have to be careful with freezing and unloading patches/purging. It's the ensemble patches that drain the most, luckily I don't use them that much anymore since I split up my template into individual instruments.

I personally like both those libraries for certain situations. I have a good buddy that did an entire albums worth of piano for a pop artist using CSP and all parties were thrilled.

Each to his own I guess...
