Realistic Note Transitions
Note transitions have always been one of the main obstacles in creating believable sounding sampled wind instruments. Early on it became evident that a large part of the task in creating Broadway Big Band would be to find ways to address this problem without sacrificing the playability of the instruments. Crafting a solution to this problem provided the technological foundation of the product the revolutionary Broadway Performer software.
Every note transition was recorded, up to a Major 9th in both directions, utilizing various playing techniques for the transitions, such as Legato, Rip Portamento, Chromatic Runs, etc. The Broadway Performer serves as a master connector for this massive pool of transitions, allowing you to play and select articulations without having to think about what is going on behind the scenes.
Multiple Microphone Setups
Artistic and technical flexibility when placing your instruments in an appropriate environment is a key factor in realizing your artistic vision. That's why the instruments in Broadway Big Band were sampled with multiple microphone positions, using different microphone types, preamps, and recording styles. This allows you to mic the instrument according to the needs of your production, just as you would if you were recording a live musician. Ultimately, Broadway Big Band leaves you free to make music by taking most of the work out of the process.
Perhaps one of the most defining aspects of an instrument”real or sampled”is the performer playing it. Broadway Big Band's instruments bring depth of character without being overbearing. This allows you the ability to fully control the "un-real" musicians, and enjoy their sampled character, without restricting your creative vision.

Sonic integrity, flexibility, reliability, technological innovation, system compatibility, and just plain character are just a few of the many reasons the Broadway Big Band is destined to revolutionize the virtual instrument world.
