Trailer Brass

While Adventure Brass lends itself to bold lines in traditional settings, Trailer Brass was produced with more modern, over-sized contexts in mind.

Musical Sampling recorded three different groups: a ten-horn ensemble, a ten-trombone ensemble and the Horde; a three-cimbasso/three-tuba ensemble that has been aggressively processed for maximum beefiness.

To get the wide, wall-of-brass sound, the players were sat evenly across the stage of a huge concert hall. Also a lot of effort went into reaching maximum volume, which is no easy task. It got so loud in there that the trombones ended up busting one of the microphones. Congrats were issued.

The library also includes a varied collection of sound design patches that utilize the brass recordings in some great ways. Impacts, pads, BRAAAMs, synth basses, rhythmic drones and the like.

As always, the GUI has limited controls to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time. The Adventure and Majestic patches come to mind, where you can produce believable brass lines using just your keys and the modwheel.

The library also contains five different GUI’s designed to immediately inform you of what a particular patch can do in terms of control.
