This is lovely, Tim. Flugelhorn and soprano sax makes for a very interesting combination!

Thank you SO much for including the list of instruments/patches, and I'm delighted you're getting so much mileage out of Unify.

@getdunne Thanks for the feedback. I'm not so adept on the flugelhorn as I am on saxes, the sound is a bit too breathy for my liking. I'm glad you found the list of patches useful, I wasn't sure it was of interest to anyone, so I'll carry on putting that in my posts.

Tim

@sloppy

I'd imagine the list of patches will be useful to everyone here on this forum.

Re flugelhorn sounding breathy: I'm not a brass or even wind instrument player, so take this with a big grain of salt, but it sounded to me as though you might be trying to play too quietly for the instrument to speak well. I wonder if you could get better results if you re-recorded the part, playing a bit more robustly, then "soften" it a bit by reducing gain and applying some filtering and maybe a light touch of reverb.

I'm sure others with actual experience could chime in here with better suggestions.

Great work! You might try fattening the flugelhorn by playing with it using a trumpet or flugelhorn sample, or doubling it with tenor sax.
