No, I don’t own it. Someone who works a lot at the studio I run does and it sounds quite good though. I haven’t programmed it myself enough to really know the deep details but it seems pretty intuitive; I think you can do rather a lot with key switches on the fly.
I’m really looking for a horn section I can play live with one hand. Kinda hard to flip key switches articulations when your hitting an EP with the other hand. I can still do expression via pedal or breath controller though.
Hmmmm. Straight ahead sounds great but I don’t know that it’s optimal for live use along those lines- but then, nothing is, really. I’d say in that case the SWAM horns might be your best bet, they respond really well to breath control. You’d have to build your sections from a bunch of individual instruments. Could be really cool though. Really though, how would that work with monophonic instruments… you’d have to have complicated rules for polyphony. A conundrum.
