    I recently bought Samplemodeling brass and really love it so far.

    But how do you achieve a more pronounced, slurred legato sound like, for example, in Cinebrass Core? Is this possible at all?

    Try using the C0 keyswtich to force split portamentos.

    reducing the transition flutter (cc22) helps the legato to be more pronounced as you would use to hear in other sample-based libraries (since they don't really capture the flutter noise as in SM)

    How slurred? Do you want to hear a bit of the slide? SM in my experience has a pretty flexible range between a quick legato and a smoother slide. I think I'm not quite sure what you're missing from SM.

    I know that there is a smoother slide (portamento, right?). But it doesn't sound like the legato in Cinebrass, or is this the portamento in SM?

    I actually want to have a sound like in Leia's Theme (Star Wars).

    The sound at the beginning at 0:17.

    I have to add that I don't have a breath controller, I play only with keyboard. Maybe it's easier to achieve with a controller.

    Just use the lowest velocity possible and make sure samples overlap? :)

    Yes. Lowest velocity gives you portamento. It's a little fiddly to play that soft, so sometimes the easier way is to play the notes and make the one you want to slide up the lowest possible velocity, then adjust the timing of the note you're sliding to.
