I made a \"DS\" general midi kit today and had some fun running some midi files through it. Everything is our\'s except for the kick drum (which I don\'t like) the bass which is Dan\'s and the piano is a very lite version of Kips Bosey.
This is really to show off the new jazz winds that Big Fish has coming out....they are really going to be good!
Donnie, I think these sound really good, but I can\'t tell for sure. I\'m having real trouble trying to get a feel for the era of these new horns. The reverb really hides the character of the sample. They also seem to have some intonation problems, or perhaps wide vibrato without delay in onset. (This might even be deliberate, but the wash really masks the sound.)
Could you perhaps re-do these with no (or nearly no) verb? The basic tone sounds like it could be perfect for those big band tracks so many of us are screaming for.
Also, perhaps an approximate ship date and price? I\'m getting hopeful.
BTW, Simon-if yoy knew the trumpet players I know, you\'d want them in the other room, too!
