So about the only thing I think I’m missing sound wise for my live playing in a classic rock and pop band, is a good horn section.
I’ve been looking to see what might work, and I’m leaning towards the Big Fish products. My concern is that a lot of these libraries seem to be focused on you setting up and recording one instrument at a time, which is great when you’re producing a recording, but not what I need. I need something more “ready to go” that sounds great without a ton of time being spent programming or working on articulations.
I’m looking for something that will give me very good brass sections while I’m playing live as well as some good solo instruments such as sax, trumpet, flute, Etc. I’ve heard of software where it will split a 3 Note chord you play and put trombone on the lowest note saxophone in the middle note and trumpet on the high note. That sounds like a great thing to me if I could get something that would do that.
Any way. I’m mostly looking for ensembles while I’m playing chords on rock or pop or soul tunes with a few of the solo instruments here and there. Any recommendations for me?
