BigSwingFace introduces BSF Tenor Trombone, the first in a series of big-band horn sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.

According to BigSwingFace, BSF Tenor Trombone was developed to address the need for playable, dynamic solo and ensemble trombone parts for use in professional arranging and composition. The library is available for immediate download at www.bigswingface.com for the introductory price of $59.95 (full price will be $79.95). It requires NI’s Kontakt 5.

Featuring trombonist Eric Alexander, this library was recorded and programmed with innovative features to bring natural expression and playability to horn section recordings:

  • Recorded with vintage ribbon microphones for classic warmth and clarity
  • Over 1200 individual samples
  • All sounds and articulations are available without patch changes
  • Distinct 2nd and 3rd trombone patches for section parts allow to avoid duplication of samples on unisons
  • Poly patch for playing chords
  • Multiple key-switched attack articulations
  • Multiple dynamics of all articulations, carefully matched to their natural volumes
  • Natural legato samples for smooth lines
  • Key-switched staccato with 4x round-robin
  • Genuine long and short swells that can be adjusted in length with MIDI controllers
  • Controllable vibrato, slides, scoops and pitch-variation
  • Two speeds of naturally recorded falls that can be adjusted in length
  • Natural lip-trills
  • Pedal or wheel-controlled crescendo and decrescendo
  • Selectable air-stop or hard (tongued) stop
  • Velocity-scaling page to customize touch response
  • All performance parameters can be automated with MIDI controllers

The included C.L.A.M.S Virtual Stage interface allows placement of each instrument in its natural location, avoiding the use of unrealistic “pan pot” mixing, allowing every instrument in a virtual ensemble to occupy a unique position in the soundstage for realistic group sound.

More details and audio demos are available from BigSwingFace’s website.

    Darn! Just when I thought I had all my Christmas Sample shopping done! They have a Grand piano as well that's nice.
