Musikmesse 2005: Arturia, in partnership with IRCAM, announces Brass

Arturia and IRCAM (Institute for Music/Acoustic Research and Coordination -www.ircam.fr) have announced Brass, a software recreation of three wind instruments - a trumpet, a saxophone and a trombone - based on physical models. All the characteristics of the real instruments have been analyzed and modeled through mathematical algorithms.

After five years of research at IRCAM, the models have reached a point where it would be hard for anyone to distinguish the original instruments from their software counterparts. Indeed, Brass allows you to play these instruments like experienced performers would - with the same control, the same flexibility and the same expression.

Brass can be used as a stand-alone software or as a virtual instrument for Windows and MacOS X. It comes loaded with more than 40 instrument presets and offers a large library of more than 1000 pre-written riffs in different musical styles. These riffs have been made by a selection of the most famous designers and arrangers in the industry.

Features:

  • Virtual instrument playable through a MIDI keyboard.
  • Three instruments available : Trumpet, Saxophone, Trombone 8 parameters to control the instruments in real time :
    1. Attack
    2. Pressure
    3. Pitch (for legatos, falls or expressivity)

    5. Noise amount in the instrument sound
    6. Vibrato
    7. Position of the instrument toward the microphone
    8. Mute (for trumpet and trombone)
  • Total MIDI control of each parameter through powerful settings, control sense and hardness.
  • Independent automation of each parameter via a dedicated control window.
