Yeah, I guess that's a good way to describe it. I'm not a brass player although I took brass technique in college for education major. It's a really cool effect when executed correctly. The first time I experienced and heard it call a "Lift" was in a 12 piece big band I played with for two and a half years. Cool sound! As a matter of fact if you can find a copy of the movie "Police Squad" the signature theme has perfect examples of brass "Lifts" all over!
I disagree. I am a trumpet player. I've had to doit from a second line G.
Hmmmm, this is certainly a head-scratcher because second line G (concert F) happens to be the lowest note that has both doits and falloffs for the trumpets. As a trumpet player myself (I'm trumpets 1, 4, 5, and the flugelhorns in J&BB - and before someone asks, except for the flugels it was different sessions, microphones, instruments, etc. yadda, yadda), I agree with you that this is about the lowest note I've encountered for these effects, hence the choice for the library. So, it isn't intended to be confined to just high notes. I just now did a random check of the programming to make sure (wouldn't be the first time I had made a mistake - after all, I'm a trumpet player - so best to check) and all seems to be functioning as designed with the instruments I chose to try here tonight. More info please, in case there's an error lurking in there someplace.
