Guess the Trumpet VSTi - can anyone identify it?

I've watched this video from YouTube many times and am impressed with the Harmon mute sound that is played at 3.00.

It looks like it's coming from a VSTi in Live on a Mac.

Can anyone identify the plugin?

AFAIK, not Miles'tone, Virtual Trumpet or WIVI.
Cheers,
G

Doesn't he said he plays samples shortly before he starts playing?

Yes, he does, but he doesn't say where they come from. Kontakt is mentioned on the description of the vid, but I'm not sure if that is the plugin. Perhaps it is a sound he himself has sampled, or perhaps there is a bank of wicked Harmon mute samples floating around out there, ready to buy. Either way, I'd like to find out.
The search continues...

he is most likely just playing the sounds that come on the device.
I used to have a yamaha wx7 back in the day..
i think the akai ones have some kick ass wind virtualization
hardware that lets them sound very realistic.

Well, I have an EWI (see sig), and can tell you that, unfortunately, the sound is definitely not coming from the on-board synth. The sounds it makes are very (80s) cheesey, and despite being very expressively manipuated by the device, are a bit of a let down. I'm referring to the about the factory presets BTW; you can alter the sounds and there are other patches available, but IMO, the synth just hasn't the power.
