Brass Bundle Pre-Purchase Advice
I am completely new to Sample Modelling libraries and before purchasing a brass bundle, could someone please conform the following. Please forgive me if the following seem obvious, but I've recently been caught out and disappointed with other libraries.
- Can the trumpet, trombone and other brass libraries can be played via MIDI events in my sequencer (Reaper) or do they require an external contoller?
- Are the following techniques all available in the brass instruments (as appropriate): Doits, Falls, Rips, Flutter, Glissando, Portamento, Bends, Slides, Swells, Mutes? Particularly Glissandos and/or Portamento in the trombone.
- If available, are these techniques triggered by key-switches and CC events or do they use some other system?
I'd appreciate any advice on the above before purchase. Thank you.
