I recently bought Audio Bros LA Scoring Stings http://audiobro.com/ and I'm looking for a brass sample library to accompany it. I already have EWQL Symphonic Orchestra but I am looking for a more "powerful" brass library. Unfortunately lately I have been having some trouble with the Play engine and their support is just telling me to uninstall everything then re-install it which I have done several times but it still won't work properly.
My budget is $500-1000. So if you have any orchestral brass sample libraries I would love it if you could point me in the direction of the one you recommend.
Yeah, East West's tech support is definitely not super awesome these days. Sad too because I used to swear by that company. Well here's what I've got:
EWQLSO Platinum - I haven't had many issues with PLAY so I still used it often then supplement that with:
Cinesamples: CineBrass - It's alright but definitely has some holes in it. I've heard some good things about Hollywood Brass but again it's PLAY so that might not help you out.
I also have The Trumpet and The Trombone for solo lines and The Chris Hein Complete for pop brass (which can take some massaging to make it sound good). Finally I have Spitfire's Albion 1 and 2 which don't contain a huge amount of brass elements but do have some.
Hope that helps!
