FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Does Swing! contain all-new recordings?

Yes! Every single sample in Swing! is exclusive to the library.

 
Are all big band instruments featured in Swing! individually playable?

The patches in the Big Band Ensemble and Sax Section folder in Swing! are ensemble recordings: we sampled a big band and a saxophone section performing notes together in certain combinations. The individual instruments in these ensembles cannot be solo'ed. The patches in the Brass Section folder are individually playable, such as just the trumpet section, just the solo harmon trumpet or just the solo trombone.

 
Does Swing! have playable instruments or is it phrase-based?

It has both! You will find a vast selection of expressive, playable instruments and pre-arranged ensembles, as well as pre-recorded big band chords, guitar strums, slide guitar patterns and many other phrases. It also features looped guitar and drum patterns.

 
Where was Swing! recorded?

Swing! was recorded in 2 different locations: the concert hall that was also used for the Symphobia and Orchestral Essentials Series (offering 3 mic sets) and a smaller studio environment (offering 2 mic sets). The location chosen depended on the instrument, musical context and usability.

 
Is there a trial demo of Swing?

Unfortunately there is currently no demo version of Swing! available.

 
What Kontakt version do I need for Swing?

Swing! requires Kontakt version 5.4.2 or higher and can be loaded in either the full version or the free Player version of Kontakt. After you purchase Swing!, you can download Kontakt Player along with the library.

 
Does Swing! work with OS X 10.6 or 10.7?

No, Swing! requires Kontakt version 5.4.2 or higher, which, in turn, requires OS X 10.8 or higher.

 
Does Swing! work with Windows XP or Vista?
