Battle of the Woodwinds

With the release of CineWinds last month, and HollyWood Winds this month, composer’s have never had so many woodwind sample libraries to choose from.

How does Berlin Woodwinds compare to the CineWinds and Hollywood Winds? We’ll find out over the next couple of weeks when the first reviews hit the web. Which library do you think will take the Woodwind crown?

  1. I am impressed by this library, far better than CineWinds or EW Hollywood Winds… my only comment and that’s true with all the professional libraries on the market is sampling the oboe – it’s such a hard instrument to reproduce but I am sure someone will come up with a great sound some day 🙂 mind you, you could always get a real oboe player too 😉

    I am very interested to purchase the Berlin Woodwinds!

    Cheers.
