The intuitive UI allows for control over dynamics, articulation switching, built-in convolution reverb, as well as advanced tweaking of legato and release sample behavior.
Carpenter Trombone was recorded in a world class studio using handmade Cloud JRS-34 ribbon mics, running through a top of the line Millenia preamp and Aurora AD converter.
Every legato transition was recorded leading into a full length sustain. This method is time-consuming to record and is rarely implemented in commercial libraries, but results in a beautiful, natural performance that simply can't be obtained through any other method.
