    New Orleans Jazz : Is Jazz & Big Band good ?

    Hi, I would like to do New Orleans Jazz.

    I'm wondering whether Garritan Jazz and Big Band is enough good to do this specific jazz.

    Can I reproduce this sound with it ?

    Thanks for your help

    That's a bit harsh! I don't think the plunger function in JABB is amazing, it is usable. I think you could do a decent job with this.

    the plunger function
    Is there someone in this forum that use Jazz & Big Band (or maybe gary is reading ) and could make me a quick mockup using this function ?

    Actually I plan buying this library but I hesitate a lot,I'm still not convinced. if someone did a demo with a lot of muted brasses or a New Orlean Jazz demo, I would like to hear so that I'll be decided.

    There has been no official demo with the plunger mutes yet. Doing plunger mutes is a fairly sophisticated performance process (involving the use of controllers) and we want to make sure when we have a demo it is done right and there are detailed instructions how to do it. Tom will be working on a demo along with a tutorial. Although it's possible under the existing player there will be even better plunger mute capabilities with scripting under the upcoming Kontakt 2 Player.

    We are busy right now getting new libraries ready to market and we won't be able to get to it immediately however.

    Thanks, Indeed I would use it with K2.

    I've had to do dixie stuff, and although I have JABB, I personally do a better job with QL brass and a clarinet from Dan Dean (the only downside is this doesn't have a vibrato)...
