Native Instruments releases "Session Horns" for Kontakt & Kontakt Player

Native Instruments has released Session Horns, a new Kontakt instrument that features the sound of a four-piece horn section. Session Horns is designed to allow producers of all levels access to high quality horns, and "includes a number of features that make it a highly creative and usable tool for a large variety of musical styles".

Session Horns is based on four meticulously sampled instruments: a tenor sax, a trombone and two trumpets, playable either as a standard instrument or using the included musical phrases. All instruments were sampled in a wide range of articulations, including specific samples to reproduce the authentic sound of typical legato horn lines. Furthermore, the unique Smart Voice Split automatically allocates each note of a chord to the corresponding brass instrument, just as an arranger would. This results in a realistic, professional sound that avoids the 'cluster' effect that plagues many software-based horn productions.

The detailed sample base was used to construct over 170 flexible playable phrases, which draw their inspiration from contemporary pop, funk, reggae, indie, and neo soul productions, and are suited for use in a variety of production contexts. The Animator in Session Horns provides producers with an inventive tool for jamming ideas and coming up with musical phrases. Using one hand to play a chord and selecting phrases with the other will generate harmonic horn accompaniments in real time, without the need for advanced production or composition experience.

Developed by renowned sampling specialists e-instruments, Session Horns is a Kontakt Instrument that can be used either in Kontakt 5 or the free Kontakt 5 Player. It joins Session Strings and Session Strings Pro in offering professional sounding studio ensembles that put usability first.

Session Horns is available at the NI Online Shop for $119 / €99 / ¥998.
