    Trumpets

    Why were the trumpets in GPO sampled so high above high c but not in their full lower range?

    Question Re: Trumpets

    Trumpets have a lower range?

    I thought they only went as low as the GPO ones did.

    Are you asking about GPO "C" trumpets or JABB "Bb" trumpets? The GPO trumpets aren't sampled all that high - JABB certainly are. In either case, the trumpets are sampled down to the lowest (non-pedal) tone they are capable of producing. I wonder where you got the idea they weren't? What a strange thought.

    Hi Tom,

    As Phrygian said, since you sampled Trumpets in C, they don't go down to the low (concert) E below middle C, as many might expect.

    While Trumpets in C are the standard orchestral instrument nowadays, one occasionally still sees notes below (concert) F# below middle C in the orchestral literature, so for the next update, it might be nice if you extended the range down to at least the E below middle C.

    When did that change come about? Is it also true of military bands?
