    So what's your favorite Trumpet Ensemble / Solo patch / library?

    Dynamic range is always appreciated. True legato a must.
    I'm mainly looking for a heroic, loud sound that doesn't need too much tweaking.
    I've already had Cinesamples Core / Pro in mind but haven't been able to find too many audio examples yet. What about the Spitifre Studio series and whatever else is out there?

    I already own those from MA1, but I'm missing the legato and a solo patch. I don't like the one from the NI Symphony Series, which I also have.

    cinebrass/cinematic studio brass for tone.

    would probably say sample modeling / modern scoring brass for agility.

    Has anyone tried the Realitone Screaming Trumpet yet? That looks very interesting.

    Honestly I've never even heard from the brand before... but the trumpet seems to be on sale right now.

    EDIT: Maybe it's just me or the lack of reverb, but the sound of it seems to be very jazzy, not so much epic - orchestral like. It's very unique and realistic though. And the narrator is in a good mood.

    By the way, starting from 1:51, this for example is a great trumpet sound that I would like to call my own :)

    I got in love with my ProjectSAM trumpet from the moment I used it.

    Chapman has 1 dynamic for sustains, but I like their fake vibrato and the note transitions. The staccato is a little hard to work with.

    Meetyhtan, I think Strezov's Rogue Trumpet is worth considering. It doesn't have true legato, but I like its sound.

    AudioBro Modern Scoring Brass.

    I think the trumpets in the TSFH track are probably Hollywood Brass, but if someone knows better...

    I don't know if I'd say favorite necessarily, but the trumpets, both solo and ensemble, in Amadeus sound very nice. So does VSL's solo Trumpet (I have the Kontakt version) if you rescript it a bit.

    Just watched your review of it :P
    Probably on top of my list right now.

    CSB, Caspian, Sample Modeling. All three have got 'tude.

    So we got CSB, Chris Hein, Cinebrass, Sample Modeling, Modern Scoring Brass, Embertone's Chapman Trumpet, 90's Retro Trumpets, Realitone's Screaming Trumpet, Amadeus, VSL and Caspian.

    Thanks, now my confusion went away and I exactly know which of those is the one and only best choice! :D
    Seriously though, there seems to be more good stuff out there than I thought. Time to listen to more demos. However, 90's Retro Trumpets seem to offer pretty much all I want. I don't think there sound is "too retro" at all, if that's even a thing. Also, I get 50% of my first Cinesamples purchase.
