See below for further details on the products in the bundle.
The CineBrass Core Library is Cinesamples’ orchestral brass sample library for Kontakt. Recorded at the world famous SONY Pictures Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and mixed by veteran legend Dennis Sands (Oz: the Great and Powerful, Argo, Avengers, Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty).
The CineBrass Core Library covers the essentials of the orchestral brass section, and functions as a foundation in our composing templates. For expanded content, check out the CineBrass PRO expansion!
CineBrass is revolutionary in its power and simplicity for recreating the sound of the orchestral brass section.
The library was designed by composers, for composers, with direct feedback from the film music community during its development. The result is a brass library that is easy to use, composer-friendly, with unparalleled recording quality.
CineBrass PRO is the expansion to the popular CineBrass Core library. CineBrass PRO is comprised of entirely new orchestral brass sample content, using the first-call Los Angeles musicians at the SONY Scoring Stage, mixed by Dennis Sands. Our CineBrass core library, released in June 2011, covers the essentials of the orchestral brass section, and functions as a solid foundation in our composing templates. But what about all the other things brass can do? We asked you, the film music community, what you wanted to see in an expansion. The result is CineBrass PRO.
Once again Cinesamples have reunited the heralded team of LA’s finest crew and musicians to bring you something truly remarkable. At the heart of this expansion are the finest collection of brass soloists ever sampled. Hollywood’s current first chairs recorded in the unequaled space of Sony’s Streisand Stage by famed engineer Dennis Sands.
This quartet of soloists (trumpet, Horn in F, trombone and tuba) received full treatment including true legato, shorts and multiple dynamic layers. You will immediately be startled by the sheer power, expressiveness and clarity produced by these master virtuosos.
Under the direction of esteemed composer/violinist Michael Levine came a set of perfectly cinematic FX designed for practical realization in your sequencer. In the vain of the ever popular cineorch comes a complete palette of chords voiced by the different brass choirs culminating in a super-sized “low brass chords” sure to garner some attention.
CINEBRASS DESCANT HORN
From intensely high pitched to the deepest low frequencies, eerie and haunting, dark and mysterious, not to mention those that are simply offensive to the ears, the FX elements in this collection will make you feel cold, tense and inextricably uncomfortable. They are, therefore, the perfect ingredients for using DRONAR to create evocative musical soundscapes and atmospheric pads that will emotionally charge your next modern cinematic production – from mystery and horror to sci-fi and thriller genres.
A perfect partner to CineBrass Core and CineBrass Pro, CineBrass Descant Horn expands the range of the Horn section. Pro horn players often pull out this instrument for delicate higher passages and it's great for soaring solos. Like CineBrass Core and Pro, CineBrass Descant Horn was recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage in Los Angeles.
What is the Descant Horn?
The Descant Horn and French Horn have a similar structure. The Descant Horn does not have the low F side of a regular horn, but it does have the high F side. Specifically, the tubes are only 6 feet long rather than 12 feet long as on a standard French horn. So, the harmonic series is offset by an octave above the normal F2 on a standard horn.
Cinesamples is proud to present CineWinds CORE Library, a next-generation orchestral woodwinds library recorded in the legendary SONY Pictures Scoring Stage in Los Angeles, and mixed by master engineer Dennis Sands (The Avengers, The Shawshank Redemption, Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, American Beauty). The CineWinds CORE Library covers the essentials of the orchestral woodwinds section, and as always, they focus on simplicity and unparalleled recording quality.
Each instrument has been meticulously sampled to cover the nuance and detail of these, while maintaining ease of use for the composer. CineWinds CORE Library provides a strong foundation of expressive woodwinds for our composing templates.

CineWinds PRO is comprised of entirely new orchestral woodwind sample content, and as with CineWinds CORE, it was proudly recorded at the SONY Scoring Stage and mixed by Dennis Sands. CineWinds CORE contains the standard orchestral woodwinds — piccolo, flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon. For CineWinds PRO, Cinesamples went beyond the essentials to bring you exceptional instruments, such as the alto flute and contrabassoon, as well as a comprehensive selection of ethnic woodwind instruments, performed by expert William Lyons, who sampled the exact instruments he played in many film scores, including The Hobbit by director Peter Jackson.
As with CineWinds CORE, Cinesamples assembled a team of the finest musicians and crew — they found great comfort and amazing sounds at the SONY Scoring Stage, recorded and mixed by the unparalleled engineer Dennis Sands.
The woodwinds in CineWinds PRO are covered with the same depth and nuance as the instruments in CineWinds CORE, and William Lyons gives a series of ethnic woodwinds of such expressiveness and detail rarely heard in orchestral sample libraries. The PRO expansion features twice the content of the CORE library.
CINEWINDS MOSTER LOW WINDS
CineWinds Monster Low Winds is a super beefy low woodwind ensemble of bassoons, contrabassoons, bass clarinets and contrabass clarinets recorded at the Sony MGM scoring stage in Los Angeles California. We’re making woodwinds cool again.
Recorded at the renowned MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios, Monster Low Winds features an ensemble of 2 bassoons, 3 contrabassoons, 2 contrabass clarinets, and 3 bass clarinets, all seated in a semi-circle to achieve a beefy, wide stereo sound.
As with every CineSymphony product, Monster Low Winds features the standard Decca Tree - Wide - Surround microphone arrays typical of feature film scoring. In addition, we set up a few close microphone pairs. Tim's Mix provides the best combination of all microphone arrays. The CLOSE mix provides the best combination of the close pairs. It's difficult to achieve a traditionally close sound with 10 players spread across the center of the MGM scoring stage. It's a close perspective, but you still hear a bit of the room. The ROOM mix has lots of beef and is made of the Decca Tree - Wide combination. The SURROUND mix is the surround pair.
Cinesamples Cinebrass Sonore is a superb brass virtual instrument for Kontakt that delivers horns and trumpets brimming with warmth and body, giving you more options within your brass instrumentation.
Sonor (adj.): resonant; full-bodied. When you see "sonor" written in a musical score, the composer just asks the musicians to play with the maximum resonance, body and tone they can. It is the opposite concept of brashness and blasting-a thick, warm sound is called "sonore." We set out to recapture sections of trumpet and horn, where we maximised tone and body rather than focusing solely on loud dynamics.
You’ll notice a wider, more open sound that takes up more room in the mix at a mezzo-forte dynamic. Cinesamples selected articulations specifically for the creation of melodies. Their greatest influence and inspiration was the organic processes employed by the great film composers of orchestral music. Recorded at the MGM Scoring Stage at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles, these ensembles also come with vastly improved legato.
