Delving deeper into the world of big band, jazz and film scoring
From the early years of animation to the gritty scenes of film noir, big band and jazz have a long tradition in film music. As much as we love the sound of the symphony orchestra, it tells only one part of the story. With the original Swing!, ProjectSAM took a first step in exploring the world of jazz and film scoring. Now, it is time to delve deeper.
There´s never been more instruments packed into a single library from ProjectSAM: solo saxes, jazzy clarinet, full big band chords, drums, basses, jazz guitar, piano, strings, vibraphone, small percussion - 100% new content, all blending perfectly. Meet the other film orchestra.
SUMMARY OF FEATURES
Extensively sampled big band instruments
Multiple legato modes available
Big band chords featuring 12 chords per key + inversions
With a shared library concept, recording location and interface, Swing! and Swing More! complement one another perfectly. Swing More! is twice the size of Swing! and has twice the detail in articulations, but both libraries offer 100% unique content with zero sample overlap. So what sets both libraries apart? If you have to choose between both volumes, the following overview shows you the most important differences.
Extensive set of big band chords? Swing More!
Playable big band tutti ensembles? Swing!

"It´s simply not possible to 100% faithfully ´virtualise´ the attitude and dynamism of a real big band (the ´everyone in the room together´ factor), but this is as close as it´s currently possibe to get. Immense." - Computer Music, Rating: 9/10
