Description

Damn, ProjectSAM gets this sh*t right. Swing More! is insane. No one else comes close to capturing the Big Band/Swing sound like these guys. What was previously unattainable is all in here.

- John Debney (The Jungle Book, Iron Man 2)

From the early years of animation to the gritty scenes of film noir, big band and jazz have a long tradition in film music. As much as we love the sound of the symphony orchestra, it tells only one part of the story. With the original Swing!, we took a first step in exploring the world of jazz and film scoring. Now, it is time to delve deeper.

We’ve never packed more instruments into a single library: solo saxes, jazzy clarinet, full big band chords, drums, basses, jazz guitar, piano, strings, vibraphone, small percussion – 100% new content, all blending perfectly. Meet the other film orchestra.

Swing More! is a very practical library which you can use by itself or easily blend with other sounds including the Symphobia line.
