Big Fish Audio and Funk/Soul Productions have released Vintage Horns 2, an NKS-compatible horn section instrument for Kontakt / Kontakt Player 5.6.8 and above.
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.
Like its predecessor, Vintage Horns, Vintage Horns 2 was not designed to be a pristine-sounding virtual instrument. Instead, the 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.
Big Fish Audio say the end result is a set of sampled horns with real character - and a product that is unlike any other horn VI available today.
Price: $199.95. Bundle with Vintage Horns 1 and save $100.
