Sound

Swing! More includes a vast number of instruments. It has the vibe of a Big Band and can be used to produce very believable scores in noir and Big Band genre.

ProjectSAM positions this library as a fit when you score to picture. Be it from the initial years of animation to the dusty scenes of film noir. You can always use a great big band or a library that supports an official jazz line.

ProjectSAM build a collection of several multis included in Swing! More. If you want to look at a deep dive into all instruments and multis, I do highly recommend to watch on YouTube for Guy Rowland videos on this excellent library. His videos are longer than usual but provide an excellent overview of what is included in this masterpiece.

This library includes Authentic Full Big Band Chords, Legato Solo Saxes, Jazzy Legato Clarinet, Legato Trumpet Section, Tenor & Bass Trombone, Guitars, Bass Guitars, Big Band Drum Kit, Various Other Percussion, Strings, and Vocals. Swing PianoThe full instrument and articulation list can be found here in this PDF: INSTRUMENT & ARTICULATION LIST.

There is excellent sounding piano included as shown below.

Rating:  Five out of five stars

Swing! More by ProjectSAM is the leading library for the film noir genre. If you up for more sounds with a similar vibe you should definitively look at the Swing bundle (Swing! and Swing More!) that if you obtain both libraries, you can realize a costs reduction.

I look forward to the possible third Swing library release, perhaps called Swing EvenMore! (no name has been shared, and there is no third part announced).
