Rather than doing massive fundraising why not make this 'Open Source Library' a completely 'Open Source Project'. Put out a call for orchestral musicians and engineers to donate a little time. As long as the recording of each instrument is done to relatively the same standards, and the final renders were done in the same studio there should be very little loss of quality and consistency.

I think the attention to detail that raboof is referring to is really what separates a 'good-enough' library to an amazing one especially with strings and woodwinds where timbre and nuance are everything.

I don't think so. A sample library would require a rather 'exhaustive' collection of the sounds of each instrument - for example, all notes in the range of the instruments at 3 different volumes and 3 different articulations (just an example). Freesound seems to be geared more towards longer fragments that play some melody or something afaics.
