An impressive collection of horn virtual instruments that will help you recreate the most popular horn section sounds of the 60s and 70s.
The Vintage Horns Bundle includes full versions of Vintage Horns 1 and Vintage Horns 2.
VINTAGE HORNS 2
Big FIsh Audio Vintage Horns 2 is a collection of virtual instruments specifically designed to emulate the sound of horn players from the 60s and 70s, including such classic styles as Vintage Funk & Soul, Cool Jazz, Roadhouse R&B and Rock ’n’ Roll, 60s Pop Rock, Vintage Film Noir, and Soul Jazz.
Vintage Horns 2 is not just a re-make of Vintage Horns 1. It is a completely different library that includes complimentary instruments to its predecessor.
Like its best-selling predecessor, Vintage Horns, Vintage Horns 2 was not designed to be a perfect, pristine-sounding virtual instrument. Instead, our goal was to create a collection of brass and woodwind instruments that captured the character of horn players from the 60s and 70s, including the quirks and minor imperfections that made them sound so good.
The inspiration for Vintage Horns 2 came from the iconic playing styles of such well-known musicians as Maceo Parker, Miles Davis, Junior Walker, King Curtis, Stan Getz, Freddie Hubbard, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Herbie Mann, Zoot Sims, and Gerry Mulligan.
VINTAGE HORNS 1
Vintage Horns is a horn section virtual instrument that gives you every instrument you need to emulate the classic horn section sounds of R&B, Soul, and Funk bands from the ´60s and ´70s. It is available for Kontakt Player 5 and as a ReFill for Reason 6.
As with its sister product, Vintage VI, the goal for Vintage Horns was not to create a shiny, perfect-sounding virtual instrument. Instead, we tried to capture the way horn sections sounded back in the 60s and 70s, including the minor imperfections that added character to those sections and made them sound so good.
With Vintage Horns you can recreate the most popular horn section sounds of the ´60s and ´70s, including:
• The Memphis Soul horn section, which typically used a single trumpet with one tenor sax and
occasionally a bari sax
• The famous horn section sound of the JBs, which featured trombone, trumpet, alto sax, tenor sax,
and bari sax
• The classic big production sound of Detroit Soul
• The Philly Soul sound, with flutes and flugel horn
• And the powerful Oakland Soul sound, with bari sax, 2 tenor saxes, trombone, and two trumpet
switching to flugel horns on ballads.
To get the sounds Big Fish Audio were after, they studied the playing styles of their inspirations, taking note of things like tone, vibrato, types of instruments, and special genre-specific articulations (growling, singing, flutter-tongue, etc). The tuning was deliberately left loose, and kept in some notes that other horn VIs would have deleted—the kind of honking, squawking, warbling, cracked, and slurred notes used by those classic players.
The end result is a set of sampled horns with real character - and a product that is unlike any other horn VI available today. We think you’ll agree, and hope that you enjoy using Vintage Horns 2.
