The Broadway Big Band Virtual Instrument (Kontakt Edition) by SONiVOX enables composers, producers and arrangers to sequence realistic non-orchestral brass, woodwind, rhythm section, and percussion instruments. Sampled from leading New York City musicians, Broadway Big Band combines technological innovation and exceptional musicianship to create a detailed, flexible, and intuitive sample library.
Note transitions have always been the obstacle in creating a sampled wind instrument. "Broadway Performer" patent-pending technology enables comprehensive recall of the thousands of samples included in the Broadway Big Band Virtual Instrument. It chooses specific note transition samples based on context, and provides instant access to a variety of articulations and playing techniques.
The Broadway Big Band Virtual Instrument maximizes each user's creative freedom by offering exceptional playability and full control over subtle performance nuances and microphone positioning.
