EastWest has announced that it is now shipping Hollywood Brass, a massive 150GB instrument that features the brand new PLAY 3 playback engine for the very latest in performance and control. As an introductory offer, customers can buy Hollywood Brass for up to 20% off the MSRP through August 15, 2011.
Hollywood Brass adds to EastWest's Hollywood Strings Virtual Instrument as the second installment in the Hollywood series, once again combining the talents of Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, Thomas Bergersen and Shawn Murphy. Recorded in place at EastWest Studio 1, widely regarded as the "best brass recording room in the entire world" says EW, with 5 user-controllable mic positions (Diamond Edition), Hollywood Brass is designed to work seamlessly with Hollywood Strings (and the upcoming Woodwinds and Percussion) for the ultimate in virtual Hollywood scoring.
Hollywood Brass includes Solo Trumpet, 2 Trumpets, 3 Trumpets, Solo French Horn, 2 French Horns, 6 French Horns, Solo Trombone, 2 Tenor + 1 Bass Trombone, Solo Tuba, Solo Cimbasso, and a low brass section consisting of 2 Tenor Bones, 1 Bass Trombone, 1 Tuba and 1 Cimbasso. A world-class group of brass artists was gathered for a sampling marathon that lasted for 21 straight 11-hour days followed by a year of post-production.
An exhaustive list of articulations, techniques, and features make Hollywood Brass one of the most expressive and realistic orchestral brass libraries on the market. Hollywood Brass also includes new brass reverb impulses taken from the convolution reverb Quantum Leap Spaces.
