    Jazz Band Library?

    ...besides the impending Garritan lib? Any combinations of sample libs out there working for anyone??? I have EW Gold but its not suited to Jazz, Broadway, swing styles.

    Ideas? SAM Trumpets and a Sax Lib perhaps? Am I missing something?

    Thanks

    Aside from specialized libraries, you'd be surprised at just how far you'll get with VSL. Load up the performance legato patches, and swing away. The Perf_leg muted trumpet is a thing of beauty that should satisfy the most discerning jazz specialist. Not to mention its uses orchestrally speaking of course.

    Hi,

    An adequate Jazz library must have as its foundation JAZZ musicians and or big band studio players who have offered their sounds and have had them processed as samples. (The combinations of sounds would be quite a bit to tally up) IMHO an orchestral player (offering his/her sound) does not come close to the objective here. The orchestral musicians could cut it close to some pop music genre in my view but mot Big Band Jazz. With all of these external effects such as LEGATO and others to enhance the sample's individual notes, a sound developer IMHO is truly missing the essentials here. Jazz has TOO many combinations and uncertainties to capture on a few DVD disks.

    I agree. Thus, my question.

    Well according to their site there will be a demo soon. If the thread originator is not in a hurry, then this may become an option. Having said that, it may, like many products before it, fall into the vapourware category. I am not affiliated with them in any manner.
