More than 75 instruments, including a comprehensive saxophone collection, brass instruments with various mutes, woodwinds, Steinway Piano, guitars, organs, acoustic and electric basses, an electric piano, drum kits, and other instruments. The entire Jazz & Big Band library is integrated with the ARIA Instrument Engine and works as a virtual instrument. No need to purchase a separate sampler. Garritan Jazz & Big Band provides multiple individual instruments from which you can build your own jazz ensembles and big bands. This is the key to realistic imitative style. The library can be used to construct solos, duos, jazz trios, quartets, jazz ensembles, or a full big band. There are key switched doubles and combinations so players can switch instruments quickly. The controls in Garritan Jazz & Big Band allow you to shape the articulation and jazz techniques. Just load your instruments and play. Standardized controls allow you to become familiar with the library and master the various instruments. Advanced functions, such as shakes, fall offs, tongue slurs, and auto legato help you produce more realistic-sounding performances. Garritan Jazz & Big Band supports all popular formats, both Mac and PC, either as a standalone program or as a plugin (VST, RTAS, and OS X Audio Units) and works with supported notation programs. An entire big band can be loaded on a single PC or laptop.
