    i am FLUSH with libraries.

    having fun creating my master template in my new DAW.

    finally going through everything I've grabbed over the last 6 or 7 months.

    thought: I am DONE!

    then,

    Cinesamples has a 30% off sale.

    What are thoughts on the Winds?

    I have EW, CH, SstWW, VSL, ARK, etc ... - jeez, just listing them is revealing enough to walk away.

    but

    I bought the CineWinds Core a while back on a BF sale and I think have never used them for anything. The sound just didn't really inspire me -- too smooth, maybe? But I do more pop/rock/experimental than full orchestral composing -- for me something really expressive, like the 8dio Claires or OTS's flute, is more useful. I would believe that CineWinds would actually sit much better in a full orchestral template.

    I love CineWinds, Core especially.
    Here's a showcase of the piccolo, flute, oboe & clarinet from CW Core.
    Close mics, with a splosh of ValhallaRoom (2.2 second tail).

    I love the raw sound of the instruments, but they are very difficult to shape into expressive realistic lines imo. I don't ever use them. But for generic kind of work, they would work.

    The sound (and room) is gorgeous, but they need quite a bit of programming to sound realistic, especially with faster lines and articulation-juggling. Both Core and Pro are very handy tools to have, so if you got some extra money I'd go for it. I like especially Pro, as it has instruments I don't have in other libraries.

    PS: Also, don't buy them from Cinesamples webpage if you're an European. Best Service has also 30% off of them, but without the added tax.

    I'm interested in the brass. I have HB, but need another huge, epic French horn legato library. I saw the Cinebrass Twelve Horn library for 30% off, I think I might grab it.

    Can someone share a link? I don't see where it is 30% off.

    I believe the same code also works at CineSamples' own website.

    For some inexplicable reason I left out the bassoon from my CW Core test above,
    so here's a showcase of the bassoon along with the alto flute & english horn from CW Pro.
    Close mics, with a ValhallaRoom 2.2 second tail.
