Fortissimo Trombone Ensemble - small freebie

Deactivated Account
Here is a short marcatos trombone ensemble patch from a set of custom studio brass I recorded a couple years ago. It seems to work to add a little presence to stage/hall samples.

I used the patch a bit as the sole low brass on this track at 0:21, 1:00, etc -- http://jasperblunk.com/music/Mountain_of_the_Sun.mp3

Three trombones, recorded in traditional seating position (towards the right).

Range: Bb1-Ab3

Mod wheel controls volume/lo-pass. Set it to the top for the full dynamic.

Here's the zip: http://jasperblunk.com/fortissimo_trombone_ensemble.zip

Best,

Jasper you champion! This sounds amazing! I can't wait to get home and try this out! Hopefully this can inspire others to have a go at creating unique samples (and sharing little freebies :))

Thanks so much! I can't wait to try these!!!

You and Blakus (and the other scripting helpers) are very generous.

The demo you have made for this is a very stirring piece of music too, I hope you make it longer eventually

Thanks. This is so cool. I really like where this forum is heading. I will (when I get time) upload some of my own recordings (percussion) to continue this new trend in this forum.

Thanks Blunk. Looking forward to try it out.

Best

Here's a quick short demo I put together for these amazing trumpets! All trumpets are JB FTE.

The trumpets are really playable and sound freakin fantastic imo. Instant permanent spot in my template. So much fun, thanks Jasper.

Jasper, I've been playing with your trumpet patches this evening, well done! I was amazed how good they sound, a very clean precise sound, and it's wonderful to have the shorts and sustains. The legato sounds great; as Blakus and I have discussed in recent days, it makes us wonder how much benefit there is to having `real legato' when the simulated legato can have such a pleasing effect for a great reduction in cost

Sounding Fantastic!

;) Maybe we can get a independent, semi complete, small Orchestra together at some point.

Btw, I was moved to write toJasper about a wonderful piece he wrote. You can hear it on the Cinematic Strings fast passages video. I'm a fan.

Just to give a bit more of an idea how fun these trumpets are, I've done a few quick comparisons.

This marcato/sustain patch is probably the most useful and flexible articulation for a trumpet ensemble.
Would be fun to hear a HB comparison!

Thanks again Jasper! Soo good.

The sense of sharing present in the last few days is extraordinary. Thanks for this as the hi brass is the only thing I am am not content with in Albion I. This has pretty much filled my needs minus a solo viola and violin, but we can only dream right?

One question though. Is there a setting to make the marcato patch poly instead of mono?

thanks,

Don
