    Hi guys,

    Can anyone recommend a decent Jazz trumpet library for that Terence Blanchard sound?

    A good example is at 4.20 from this 25th hour track:

    I found vgjazztrumpet which sounds really nice -

    Anything else out there i could look at that has a similar sound?

    If you own Komplete Ultimate. I've gotten a lot of use out of Session Horns Pro, you can give that a try until you can afford or pick up something like Sample Modeling. if you do make sure you also grab a breath controller, that can really add to the realism and expression.

    And if you have the budget for the project and accesibility you can always hire in a quality player there are many out there who could use the work.

    You mentioned your interest in a decent library. Consider that it's very hard to find a decent library for jazz trumpet. To give you the freedom and flexibility of articulations it's not gonna happen with a decent library unless you just want to stick to the basic articulations. If you want the best get Broadway Big Band. Ever since I was asked to help demo that library at NAAM the past few years it is the best. I didn't know about that library prior to my NAAM invites. Sample Modeling is great but doesn't have close to the number of articulations BBB has. There aren't other libraries out there that really capture jazz well. It's pretty pricy but it's worth it.

    Pretty different approach.
    Samplemodeling is an instrument you actually "play", adjusting parameters (many) to your playing style/approach/taste .
    Nothing to do with mostly "key switching/articulations" (there's some too) based instrument.

    Brings to mind a good example of SM realtime play:
