High-pitched Magic for Your Orchestrations

The piccolo trumpet has a sound all its own. Whether you're orchestrating baroque music informed by Bach and Handel or you're seeking a unique solo voice for your latest pop masterpiece, the piccolo trumpet has much to offer. Pitched in Bb, one octave above a standard Bb trumpet, this transposing brass instrument delivers a sweet, high-pitched sound that will immediately capture your listeners' attention. The Beatles famously used one for the solo in "Penny Lane" and again in the outro of "All You Need Is Love." That particular instrument was sold at auction for over $10,000. So you can see what a great deal Vienna Symphonic Library Piccolo Trumpet is! This is a highly playable sample library that captures all the nuances of the instrument. And as usual, VSL has included a full range of expressive articulations that will infuse your orchestrations with color and vitality.

Vienna Symphonic Library Piccolo Trumpet Features:
  • First-call musicians, first-class samples
  • A superior way to orchestrate
First-call musicians, first-class samples

At Sweetwater, we hold the Vienna Symphonic Library in high regard; that's because we're picky about our orchestral samples. It all starts with the musicians. Since VSL's inception, first-call musicians have been providing the sound and character of these instruments as soloists and ensemble leaders. This approach is largely responsible for the impressive sonic authority and authenticity we have come to expect from VSL virtual instruments.

A superior way to orchestrate

The Vienna Instruments series expands on the previous libraries and offers embedded, intelligent Performance Algorithms in an easy-to-use plug-in that lets you orchestrate with an inconceivably vast array of samples. For the first time, hundreds of articulations can be combined in one preset and on a single MIDI track. Vienna's proprietary Performance Detection analyzes intervals, repeated notes, patterns, and even speed in real time and automatically summons the appropriate articulation or nuance.

Vienna Symphonic Library Piccolo Trumpet Features:
  • The definitive piccolo trumpet virtual library
  • Transposing brass instrument pitched in the key of Bb
    • Sounds a minor seventh higher than written
    • One octave higher than a standard Bb trumpet
  • Highly playable, with a full complement of expressive articulations including:

    • Dynamics: fortepiano and sforzato with vibrato
    • Flatter and trills: flutter tonguing (normal, crescendo), trills normal, major 2nd (fast)
    • Performance interval: legato without vibrato, normal and sustain crossfading
    • Performance repetition: legato slow, portato, staccato
