    Orchestral Trumpet Section test recordings finished !

    Hi everyone,

    Remember the orchestral brass sampling project I started a topic about some months ago?

    We just finished our test-phase recording sessions for the orchestral trumpet section samples.

    They turned out really great, following some of the theories described in this \"Manifesto\" and my \"Articulations reseach\". Very useful different portato and staccato sample lenghts!

    We are now editing, processing and programming the samples.

    When we have some real demos, I will post them on this forum.

    A FIRST QUICK DEMO IS HERE !
    http://www2.hku.nl/~maarte2/public/testtrumpetsection2.mp3

    This small theme (Chicken Run) is performed with our new trumpet section samples, using 4 or 5 different articulations: staccato, short portato, long portato, hard-attack portato. The samples are performed by a 3 player trumpet section.

    Just a 1st sample, to give all of you a clue what our test-phase samples and new articulations sound like. Programming is still in progress...

    Yes, it sounds great! Finaly a trumpet section which sounds like from a hugh modern film soundtrack. If the quality will be the same also about other instruments, it will be the sample\'s heaven.

    I like the demo too!
    I can\'t wait to hear more.
    This would be great for my band works.

    yes this IS the way to do it!!!

    My only gripe is that some of the samples sound a bit flat, pitch wise. Easily fixed with furhter editing I presume

    But they are full of life and so much more like the real thing. This is definately the way to go. Can they be made available for public purchase by the end of the week?!

    Very promising Maarten! I just hope that the pitch-slideups will be optional, since I would probably only use that on very rare occasions!

    I like the tone of the trumpets a lot. However the scoop on the front of the notes sounds a bit funky. Hopefully that can be fixed with more editing.

    the stereo imaging is a bit strange.

    the longer notes seem left heavy compared to the shorter notes.

    otherwise it sounds very promising.
