    I've recently started thinking about arranging for band and have great difficulty in tracking down quality samples for use with VST/Sampler platforms (Cubase / GIGA etc). The orchestral brass are fine and I regularly use Garritan, EWQSL Orchestra Gold as well as various GIGA and AKAI disks.

    Does such a thing exist - In whatever form. I know at some point there was talk of a brass band Soundfont for use with Creative cards but I can't locate this anywere.

    jujst wondered what other people used - if anything

    Are you after free or commercial samples Jonathan?

    AFAIK, there hasn't been a fully commercial brass band library developed. I do know that some people have their own libraries that they've made themselves from sampled loops from CDs etc.

    It's been something I've been thinking about for a while, but due to the (relatively) limited amount of market / lack of budget / time constraints I've never got round to it.
