Playback for muted trumpets

I have a section of music where I would like to have the trumpets muted for playback purposes. Do I have to add an additional player to each trumpet to accomplish that?
So far I have not seen anything in the HALion library representing sounds for muted brass instruments. Perhaps I need to add an additional library?

The HALion Symphonic Orchestra library that comes with Dorico does not include muted trumpet, I’m afraid. If you want a muted trumpet sound that matches the timbre of the open sound, you will indeed need another library that includes the muted technique.
