    There appears to be a Jazz Band Update

    Nice looking instrument list! Not available until summer, though I'm sure it'll be worth the wait

    Welcome to the forum!
    Hey ben, I take it you are refurring to the Garritan Big Band Jazz library. Well, let me tell you waiting for anything Mr. Garritan promises is always worth it! I'm excited as well as most if not all.

    So I've heard! I've been interested in this for a while. Was quite surprised to see how many instruments are to be included given how difficult it must be to capture all the brass effectively. There's everything from drum kits, bass, to electric guitars and piano. Really is a BIG band. Looking forward to the demos

    Couldn't see any plunger mutes on the listing

    Hopefully they are still in development and will be part of the "subject to revision".

    Drum kits? Yes well, I still like recording and playing the parts myself but there will be some use for them. Would be nice to midi up a Roland V drum kit and assign the drum sound. That would work fine for me but playing in rhythms on a keyboard controller just doesn't cut it! So, if I can afford the lib, I will use all the other instruments as such but play in my own drums. Be cool thing to do though and might help render a more natural feel. It remains to be heard though.

    If so, it wouldn't be for a long, long time.
