Dannenberg Trumpet & Trombone
Breath-controlled wavetable trumpet & trombone
EDIT: V2 adds a trombone.
Dannenberg Trumpet & Trombone is a breath-controlled instrument created from the trumpet and trombone wavetables in the Dannenberg Wind Oscillator. It uses Spectral Interpolation Synthesis, a method of synthesizing brass and woodwind instruments via a two-dimensional wavetable as described by Prof. Roger B. Dannenberg at https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~music/sis/index.html.
This instrument is breath-controlled and without a wind or breath controller operating on CC2 or CC11 it will make no sound. I've been using a TEC breath controller, available at http://www.tecontrol.se/products/usb-midi-breath-controller, and an AKAI EWI, available at https://www.patchmanmusic.com/.
In a pinch you can instead use the mod wheel on CC1, making sure to set the Air Input Type to "Wind". But it won't sound as good.
It includes these features:
* Flutter tonguing
* Sizzle (bell cracking)
* Mutes (five in all)
* Formant shift, useful for making trombones
* Pitch Attack Overshoot (initial pitch instability)
