What's new

The real reason I haven't purchased samples in over a year

So basically I've been pouring all my resources in producing music for live performances because of commissions and personal gigs. Plus, I've basically created a horn or redesigned an instrument from the 1800's and modernize it with modern tunings, triggers, better projection, and free blowing. It's a rotary-valved cornet with a 100 year-old bell, German designed valves, 4 tuning lead or mouth pipes, plated in 14 karat gold and the places I touch in rhodium. This horn was built by Dr. Bill Jones, and I guess we are going to call it the Money Cornet. I am looking to also hire an engraver from Virginia to add detail to the rotary valves and other sections. Thank you for letting me share! received_2196624333990745~2.jpegreceived_343225139835267.jpegreceived_304746263502683~2.jpeg
The sound clip was simply recorded on my phone.

Ok - Im drooling!
You're gonna think I'm crazy, but I got other ideas for more instruments also. I am feeling like Adolf Sax now, lol. For example, all of these having rotary valves: an upbell flugelhorn, an Eb alto euphonium or German Tenor Horn because the alto/ tenor horn we have now is basically an alto baritone, and a bass trumpet/ cornet I have in my mind.

Does it have true legato?

Jokes aside.

So when are you gonna sample it.

:P
It's funny you mentioned true legato! The reason I chose the rotary valves instead of pistons was so the slur transitions from note to note would be smoother! No joke, lol. Concerning sampling, y'all wouldn't want a brass instrument version of Tina Guo. My soul plays with too much vibrato and "cc1 changes" to be useful, hehe.

Dang it! Now I need another SSD!!! :rofl:

Seriously though, my congratulations Rodney. It looks like a labor of love. I know how it feels to make something like that. Enjoy it in good health.

P.S: +1 for Dr. Jones :grin:

By the way, I love the name "Money Cornet". You should file for a trademark ASAP. It's like the "money shot" or something. Right on the money.
I appreciate that and the advice!!! If you, or anyone else, can think of a possible better name I would appreciate it. I am seriously thinking about coming up with a whole line of brass instruments.
