Sample Logic releases Fanfare - Marching & Cinematic Brass Library for Kontakt and Kontakt Player

Sample Logic and System Blue have announced the release of Fanfare, a Kontakt Player virtual instrument pairing the DCI World-Champion Blue Devils marching brass with the award-winning sound design of Sample Logic.

From traditional marching brass to full-blown cinematic soundscapes, Fanfare delivers a marching brass library for educators and arrangers, and a versatile construction toolkit for film, TV, game composers, producers, and electronic musicians. Tapping into the mind of premier wind and brass arranger John Meehan, Fanfare features a broad array of samples recorded by Leslie Ann Jones on The Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (Lucasfilm Ltd Company) and on the field at Ralph Wilson Stadium (home of the Buffalo Bills) by Grammy Award winner Frank Dorritie. The indoor recordings were done at close, mid, and far microphone placements, while the outdoor recordings were captured with state of the art stadium surround sound recording techniques. The resulting sonic textures range from full stadium ambience to an “in-your-face" 85-piece brass ensemble, with all of the recordings capturing The Blue Devils’ signature sound of inventive chords, avant-garde clusters, swells, and organic brass effects.

And it doesn't stop there…
Fanfare not only boasts the finest traditional marching brass samples, but extends the library’s sonic reach via Sample Logic’s signature “blurring the line between music and sound design” programming techniques. Starting with the traditional brass recordings, an entire library of morphed “cinematic” multi-sampled instruments was created, putting not only marching brass at your fingertips, but also an inspiring array of melodics, pads, leads, stingers, impacts, transitions, atmospheres, and articulated rhythms–all organized into easily accessible, production-ready presets.

The Instruments & Multis:

  • A complete collection of traditional marching brass instruments (trumpets, mellophones, euphoniums, tubas, and trombones) recorded with multiple round robins, multiple dynamics, and up to five microphone placements.
  • Scoring Stage: Individual instruments and sectionals.
  • Stadium: Large sections and full ensemble.
  • A complete collection of evocative morphed cinematic instruments and rhythms.
  • Atmospheric/ambient soundscapes and stinger construction kits.
  • Arpeggiator/Arpeggigater rhythmic instruments.
  • Swipes, scrapes, impacts, and reverse transitional effects.
  • Performance-ready multis (playable interactive preset templates made from multiple instruments).

The FX
Fanfare offers full control over sound and performance, thanks to Sample Logic’s custom-designed Kontakt Player interface. Building on the exclusive “multi-core effects sequencer” first introduced in their Cinematic Guitars collection, Sample Logic puts complete, customizable user control right at your fingertips, with sequencers, LFOs, programmable arpeggiation, a unique Rhythmic Articulator, and a fully integrated multi-microphone mixer. Fanfare boasts over 40 screens of powerful, intuitive user interface controls.

Sample the future: The Arpeggigater
Sample Logic introduce a powerful addition to Fanfare: The Arpeggigater, which allows users to design custom gate sequencer patterns with effects simultaneously. This powerful addition allows for infinite sound-sculpting results.

Swirling the space: The Spinner
All of Fanfare's multi-mic instruments include a sound-swirling spinner effect. This effect allows users to not only change the listeners perspective around the concert hall (Left to Right and Close to Far), but also allows you to automate the listening position swirling the sound with your own custom patterns.
