Lives for gear

One of the problems with using MIDI for instruments such as trumpets is that it isn't good enough simply to trigger a note and let its do its thing, because a human player will vary the loudness and other qualities of the note while it is playing. So in order to have anything like a realistic-sounding trumpet, you have to have a way of controlling the notes while they're playing.

One product that addresses that issue explicitly is Garritan Personal Orchestra. Let me suggest that you check out the demo at the top of their page as one example of what's possible with MIDI.
