We are very happy to release Front Porch Tuba, a realistic new sample collection for Kontakt 5+. Front Porch Tuba is the first tuba library geared specifically toward jazz, folk, funk, and other non-orchestral uses. With 31 unique samples for every tuba note (all chromatically sampled), you will be able to create incredibly versatile and realistic performances.
- Chromatically sampled BBb tuba: 33 note range, from low E up to middle C
- Ultimate tuba library for non-orchestral music:
– full pizzicato-style short (staccato) notes geared toward jazz, folk, etc
– 4 Round Robin variations for every short note at every velocity means more realistic results
– 6 unique fluttertongue samples per note give the perfect mean tuba growl
– relaxed feel imitates authentic “street tuba” performance
– but don’t rule out orchestral uses, add some punch to your tuba line!
- 31 unique samples for each tuba note (1023 total samples, over 320 MB):
- 3 velocity levels for every note (except sforzando-piano articulation)
- 5 articulations per tuba note:
– “short”: 12 samples for every note (4 variations x 3 velocities)
– “long accented”: 6 samples each note (2 var x 3 vel)
– “long unaccented”: 6 samples each note (2 var x 3 vel)
– “fluttertongue”: 6 samples each note (2 var x 3 vel)
