VSL Trumpet (Bb) Muted

During the recordings of the muted Trumped in Bb Alfred (Freddy) Staudigl has once again proven to be an experienced master of his art, expanding the classic European style with more intense vibrato, portamento, bends and falls, while sacrificing nothing in aesthetics.

The Single Instrument contains the same articulations as the Trumpet in Bb, but all samples have been recorded using a classical “straight mute”. The result is a thin and slightly “nasal” tone that blends well with ensembles of woodwinds and strings, but is also perfectly suited for lyrical melodic solo lines.

  •     Staccato
  •     Portato short and medium
  •     Sustains, with and without vibrato, as well as with progressive vibrato

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in the box of any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.

Shipping costs are calculated at time of checkout by our shopping cart, based on the weight of your order and the method of shipment.
