Heavyocity releases "FORZO: Modern Brass" for Kontakt Player

Heavyocity

Heavyocity Media has announced the release of FORZO: Modern Brass, a new orchestral brass virtual instrument for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Here's what they say:

From John Williams to Hans Zimmer, orchestral brass has been a sources of force and power in the modern era of film scoring. Heavyocity's FORZO: Modern Brass was made in that image. Recorded at the legendary Skywalker Sound, FORZO is the product of Heavyocity's sound design team joining forces with composer, Jason Graves, and Hollywood Film Score Engineer Satoshi Mark Noguchi. This team entered the hallowed halls of Skywalker with one goal in mind: create a new benchmark for orchestral brass. Amassing an epic ensemble of brass players was the first step in bringing FORZO to life; FORZO's 12 horns, four trumpets, eight trombones (tenor, bass, & contra bass), and two tubas deliver 25 GB of brass power straight into the hands of the cinematic composer. Creative articulations like cluster bends and random flutters flex these sections' muscles in a way that is totally unique. FORZO's Full Ensemble NKI puts the entire 26-piece brass orchestra (playing at the same time, in the same room) at your fingertips.

"We got so much positive feedback about last year's flagship, NOVO: Modern Strings, that we knew we had to go back into the studio and record brass next," said Dave Fraser, Partner and Sound Designer, Heavyocity. "FORZO is the Heavyocity take on brass: it's big, it's in-your-face, and it's definitely not like anything you've ever heard before."

The 300+ presets in the instrument wouldn't be complete without a diverse collection of Hybrid Cinematic content and tempo-synced Loops. Heavyocity has taken a collection of meticulously-recorded samples and created something new: the hybrid side of FORZO cuts a new path for the modern composer, as creative processing and expert sound design walk the fine line between organic and electronic. A library of over 400 tempo-synced loops infuses a layer of instant inspiration into the workflow of any composer. Combined with the engine's sound-shaping capabilities, featuring intuitive macro and automation controls, FORZO provides the composer with a gamut of orchestral brass possibility.

As a "powered-by-Kontakt" instrument, FORZO offers all playback and sound-shaping functionality through the full version of Kontakt or the free Kontakt 5 Player.
