Read the full review by Nick Batzdorf at the latest issue of Virtual Instrument Magazine… says:
"Fable Sounds presents a virtual instrument package featuring amazingly realistic brass. You truly won't believe your ears when you hear how lifelike the samples are; the range of inflection and textural variation is as close to the real thing as it gets without having a horn player in the room with you. That may sound like a shameless plug for Fable Sounds, all we at Gearwire do is urge you to hear it for yourself. Once upon a time, brass samples were very hard to create with any kind of authenticity, but this product raises the bar rather high."




Recording Magazine: (review)
Gary Eskow of Recording Magazine says in his recent review that Broadway Big band is “A remarkable accomplishment.” Talks about the “vibrant character of the performances”, states that “The key-switching scheme in BBB is extremely intelligent and well designed, and it offers a level of expressive possibility that no other library in its category comes close to.“ and adds that “The importance of this advancement is hard to overstate. “ He also says that “BBB is in a league of its own”
And concludes that “Fable Sounds has produced the most thoroughly playable set of pop horn samples ever brought to market.“ and “In a cluttered field, this library has raised the bar and immediately takes its place as a standard against which future products of its kind will be measured.”

The review concludes that it has“all the styles and attitude required for a pop / rock / R&B brass section” and that “Once you've mastered its keyswitching techniques, the musical possibilities are endless.”
