Imagine the fluidity of the Solo Strad applied to the JABB library. Imagine the fluidity of the saxophones and woodwinds with the new sonic morphing technology?
The JABB saxophones would be phenomenal if this technology was applied. Imagine being able to do all those awesome licks with the fluidity and expression that only a human player or a Yamaha VL70-m with the Patchman Turbo VL chip could perform?
It's been a serious long-standing problem that sample libraries have suffered - lack of human fluidity in the woodwinds, brass and strings department. Pianos - no problem, vibraphones, xylophones, glockenspeils - no problem, harpsichords, organs, clavinets - no problem...they are keybed instruments and the only human aspect is the velocity at which the keys are struck either with mallet or by pressing with fingers. Pretty simple stuff.
When it comes to woodwinds, brass and stringed instruments - you have a much bigger issue - the expression - the sliding and twisting of the bows on a violin, the breath modulation and reed bending on a sax or clarinet, the pressure of the breath on a trumpet. Sampling just cannot do that (or at least it seems) with either quickness or fluidity.
Solo Strad appears to have fixed the problem as far as bowed instruments go (well, the violin anyway, it would be nice if all bowed instruments were covered too )...but brass and woodwinds (and guitars too) still sadly suffer from the problem and sorry to say but it's a big problem.
