What are your favourite Brass Libraries then?

Has anyone an example of CSB in mentioned heroic (aggressive?) context? I couldn't find such a demo anywhere which is the main reason for me still holding back on it... Brian, could you eventually provide the track you mentioned?
Btw thank you guys for your input and time, really appreciate it!

Perhaps this?


The above is all brass, all CSB. It was an attempt to recreate the unmixed raw audio from a live brass recording, used as a performance reference (below).

I've heard this one and it sounds great imo but I was searching for something maybe a bit more "trailer-ish?". Because this track sounds very realistic (as was the aim, I guess, which it btw achieved very well, congrats) rather than "epic" (pls don't kill me for using this term) imo if you know what I mean...

How agile is CSB? Can I achieve "How To Train your Dragon" - style fast melodies (Welcome to Berk for example) without too much faking and trickery?

I believe it is one of the best options available for that. Though its articulation list isn't massive I believe you'd be able to do it. The library I'm using right now (which can do that kind of agility very very easily is Infinite Brass) but if CSB won't do it, not sure if many other libraries will do it much better.

for me, i tend to use main mic and close mic for CSS where as CSB i tend to opt for the room mic only. personal preference.
That's probably how I would approach it as well to create some realistic space and variation in distance. But I don't own CSB yet. YET!
For the strings alone, I'd rather boost some air to make them a little closer.
