This is Dan Dean Brass Ens. w/ a little bit of reverb, no eq. Similiar to King\'s earlier demo, this is just banged out in 5 minutes or less. The library is very playable. I heard another demo which layered Dan\'s solo brass with the ens.. I have not found it necessary to layer this brass with anything other then itself. The Raiders trumpet is the ambient sample version with just a bit of ambient trumpet stac. layered in to give it more attack. With a just a little more time you can achieve a much more expressive performance in the trumpet than what I\'ve done here. The EXP samples are great, and finally we have the FFF trumpet in a hall setting.
Basically, I like the tone of the trumpets a lot. Haven\'t heard ensemble sampled trumpets work so well when exposed before.
One thing that lets the second demo down (the Voyager theme?)is that the third note in the piece - an A - is noticeably different in timbre to those adjacent to it. It\'s either slightly less present or duller. Just a bit less sizzle than its brethren. This happens throughout the demo.
Obviously this is exactly the kind of thing which gets fixed in a pre-release, so it doesn\'t worry me.
