I use the TEC BC2 with Audio Modelings SWAM saxes and Trumpets (uses Kontakt). Guitar is my main instrument using Fishman Triple Play.
LOVE the saxes and in some respects the trumpet even sound better…which is saying a lot! The SWAM interface is MUCH better than Kontakt however. Actually don’t like that at all.
I bill myself as a Digital Guitarist as my setup is guitar (of course), laptop, plugins (saxes, trumpet, organ, various keys) and the breath controller. I get acoustic guitar sounds via my Godin Montreal piezo and electric sounds via the PUPs and SGear amp plug. The Godin has the Fishman built in.
I do all instrumental (no vocals) mostly with tracks, although I do solo guitar as well. I can say that people are pretty surprised when they hear a guitar melody followed by a sax solo or organ, or vice verse. You get the idea😊
I get a lot of quizzical looks when they see me playing with the breath controller and hear a trumpet or sax. Its loads of fun and I can cover a lot of ground with the various instruments and arrangements. I do jazz treatments on the standards and Latin songs and more contemporary arrangements on pop stuff with more electric guitar for leads in songs like Santana or Hotel California, etc…
Here’s the key…CANTABILE! I couldn’t work without it!
Thank you Brad, and thank you forum for the wonderful support and feedback!
