V2: Now has five mutes which can be added onto the bell.

This oscillator block contains a map of trumpet waveforms by pitch and loudness. It can be transposed down into trombone and tuba ranges.

The wavetable was created by analyzing trumpet samples from a sample library.

It's included in an ensemble whose loudness (pp through ff) is controlled by the modulation wheel.

This was just an experiment, really, to learn how to make a block.

My thanks to Sandy Small, whose Microwave Oscillator I used as a template.

Thank you Chet. I will try to combine it with "Improper AMDF macro" pitch and gate tracker in order to get ultimate 6 (string) channel trumpet guitar synth. I've made it with Silverwood and Herald Brass with great results. But with Steampipe something went wrong.
