    GPO and brass mutes

    I am thinking of buying GPO. Can anyone let me know if the brass sounds include mutes? In a particular I want to hear solo trumpet with cup mute. I'm sure the big band library has all the mutes but I wondered if the orchestral library does. I will be using it under Sibelius with Kontakt so hopefully it will respond to the text marking "cup mute" which is in Sibelius' playback dictionary.

    AFAIK, the orchestral library only includes straight mutes.

    Hi Mark -

    Good to see you over here from the Sib forum. Hows sunny Aus? I'm afraid I think Dan is correct.
    I'll recheck though over the weekend to make sure.
    Best.

    Not just sunny, too bloody hot!

    Thanks I'd really appreciate it if you checked.

    If not, I wonder if the new upcoming ARIA version of GPO will have cup mutes? However, for a Sibelius user I understand Kontakt will be much easier so I'm tending to duck waiting for the new version.

    The current Kontakt version of GPO only includes straight mutes.

    Thanks Henry. It's a nuisance. Now I just need to hear if the new Aria version will be more flexible on this point...

    Would the trumpets with cup mutes from the JABB library suffice?

    Well, two things. I need a SOLO trumpet, not a section. If it has a solo trumpet cup mute, yes that would suffice.

    But the second thing is I don't use Garritan JABB and don't want to buy it just to get a cup muted trumpet. The idea that orchestral trumpet players only use straight mutes and it's only the jazzers that would use cup mutes is just plain wrong.
