"Hi Everyone,
 
First post ;-)
 
The cinesamples Brass is very impressive, more so then the VSL dimension Brass i think. Am not convinced by the Project SAM Orchestral Brass..........sound a bit thin and also the articulations seem limited?

David W. Hamilton replied to Adam Weldon's discussion VSTi's... What would be you're choice? What do you use at the moment?
"I think that the primary thing Andrew's getting at is the recording will sound the same.  You can have two different sounding scores, but if you're using the same recordings (even if you tweak them better/worse than somebody else), they're going to…"

I think that not many understand the following paradox: The better the VSTi is, the worse it is for music creation.

"I currently use East West's Symphonic Orchestra Gold--I'm going to be getting their Customizable Collection, too, plus some Vienna libraries/Project SAM.
 
I hear that LASS is very good--they're also expensive.  (They do often have a sale that takes…"

"Kidnapped, with Armand Assante.  Good music, but they just replay the same three/four cues over and over and over again throughout the course of the entire film."

"How much RAM do you have, Paul?  Julian's probably right.  I've got 4GB... it can take a bit to load the sounds once in a while when I have it play things back for the first time, but it's never frozen up on me before.  But if you've got less than…"

"In that case I'd say that Chris is right with Vienna. SAM aims at a cinematic sound.
 
In my sci-fi horror cue on my page here, there are some trumpets (around 0:28) which are a mix of Vienna and Project SAM."

David W. Hamilton replied to David W. Hamilton's discussion Project SAM?
"I usually compose in the more 'classical' tone; it sounds like SAM (like more other libraries) ends up depending on exactly what you're wanting to use it for?"

James Semple replied to David W. Hamilton's discussion Project SAM?
"Hi David,
 
I wouldn't necessarily say that Project SAM Orchestral Brass Classic is the best around but it is an excellent library and widely used.
 
Pros: Excellent sound and a decent number of articulations.
 
Cons: No legato samples or really…"
