    One of the cool things I really liked was the swishing snare brushes. I wish you the best success on this new project.

    Sounds Excellent!

    Will it have a "Wah Wah" mute articulation for the trumpets for those james bondish scores?

    I was a namm and heard some very early demos of some of the saxes and trumpets - the saxes were by far some of the best samples of these instruments I've heard to date, and the trumpets are awesome too - very much looking forward to this!

    Good to hear Jeff! I'm particularly glad you commented on the sound of the saxes since I haven't heard them and of course, that's mainly what I'm interested in (not that everything else isn't important as well.)
