You Need Cornet
It may look like a trumpet, but it's actually a cornet. The first one was crafted by Frenchman Louis Antiine Halary around 1828. First used in marching and military bands, the instrument was eventually inducted into romantic-period symphony orchestras. Vienna Instruments: Cornet gives you access to this serviceable instrument, which has a rounder, softer sound than a trumpet - albeit with a more limited dynamic range. It's relatively easy for a player to coax good tonal response from, and so the cornet has become quite popular, particularly in music education. Experienced trumpeters can easily double on the cornet without special training. Take it from Sweetwater, Vienna Instruments: Cornet is a highly playable virtual instrument for which you'll find many uses.
