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.

      DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SWING! AND SWING MORE

      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?

      Press Quotes

      "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)

      "The overall content is great; the various sections blend together very naturally, and I recommend listening to the excellent demos on the ProjectSAM website as proof of concept." - Sound On Sound
