I got N I’s Session Horns for $49 during the December sale, [not sure if that’s a lighter version of Session Horns Pro or not], and at first I was a bit underwhelmed until I choose some of the different articulations & presets.
Then with a bit of different velocity playing variations, it really came alive for me. I wouldn’t say it’s my go-to horns library, [mainly because I’m not sure I can separate the instruments into solo modes], but I’m quite happy with it for $49.00, and have used it in a few songs now along side with Embertone’s Sensual Sax - the 2 work excellent together!
My two go-to libraries for single Sax & Trumpet are Embertone’s Sensual Sax & Chapman Trumpet, but I have just purchased ‘The Saxophones’ 4 pack from Sample Modeling, so it may take first place fairly soon.
A steal at $20 & $30!
Too bad you missed out on the recent Fanfare deal from Musician’s Friend for $29 - down from $400 [or something like that].
If you’re not too concerned with price, some recommend Sample Modeling Products for the ultimate realism in sounds.
Of course there are others out there, but I don’t own those nor ever tried them.
