What our users say
“I cannot believe this is free. It’s gonna be the best free trumpet/trombone no contest. The mute options are great!“Composing Gloves
“A fine instrument: intimate, detailed and full of character.”James Dowsett
“Rhapsody is very polished and fun to use. I recommend it highly, and the Libre Wave libraries are truly very good indeed.”Geoff Beasley
“With some reverb (and turning the vibrato amount down), this trumpet can fit right at home in a brass chorale arrangement. And the options for bucket, cup, and harmon mutes is a nice set of colors!!“Justin Bell
