Hello there, this is a piece mainly to showcase a Chapman trumpet vst by Embertone. I had a hard time finding a suitable midi solo. I think this one did the job. I know there are a few trumpet and wind controller players out there that might like this instrument, only catch is that has to be used with a Kontakt full version player.

Style is _JAZFSKB.STY (Fast Jazz Swing Poll Winners)

RealTracks in style: ~~443:Bass, Acoustic, Jazz Sw 140
RealTracks in style: ~~2289:Piano, Acoustic, Rhythm JazzSwingKenny Sw 140
RealTracks in song: 2593:Horn Section, Background CroonerBigBand9-Part Sw 110
RealDrums [in style:JazzSwingLewis^04-a:Brushes Swirl, Busy Snare , b:Ride and Hihat

Rough road


Cheers


Mike B.

We thought it did the job also. Excellent.

I'm clueless regarding midi other than the occasional use of a MST but am in awe of what talent and midi can produce.

And a great mix to showcase it all in.

Most enjoyable!

The Embertone is good, but the background crooner horns are so cherry. I use them a lot.

Mike,

Great midi use!
The Embertone is very vivid.
It's full of the essence of modern jazz.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Mike,

I liked your song a lot - lovely feel.

Also liked the Trumpet at the start of the song.

However I thought the Trombone (was it a Trombone?) in the second half of the song had to much reverb and the reverb was also too long.

Otherwise - very enjoyable and look forward to hearing more of your songs.

Best Regards
Nigel

I'd always heard the Chapman Trumpet in a slower, more sedate context. So it was cool to hear it in a jazzy context.

BiaB has some create jazz tracks, and you make them shine in this song.

Cool listen! laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
