But finally this looks like a really good option about to be released. http://www.musicalsampling.com/trailer-brass/

Edit: yum, first play is delicious. Will report back once I've used it in something.
This sounds great and is certainly worth considering even at the current price of $249.
But I have a couple of questions for Rob and others who are writing trailer music using VSTs: Are you getting your music placed in trailers? And if so, what type of films do these trailers support?
I had one 13-second passage of my music placed in a big-time trailer a few years ago (Elizabeth: The Golden Age). It was an etherial passage using virtual strings placed under Cate Blanchett's voice-over. But for the big bombastic action trailers, I wonder to what extent composers using virtual orchestras can compete with those who have the resources to hire real orchestras.
I know this is not the best Forum category for this question, but if anyone cares to respond, I'd be interested in your observations.
