This specially-priced bundle contains 3 libraries from the CineSymphony series. This is a full brass library containing our CineBrass CORE, CineBrass PRO, and CineBrass Descant Horn libraries.
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 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.
