Impact Soundworks has released Bravura Scoring Brass, a complete collection of orchestral brass ensembles, soloists, and aleatoric effects. This Kontakt Player instrument features over 55,000 samples recorded in a scoring studio with three mic positions, spanning instruments such as trumpet, horn, trombone, and low brass ensembles, as well as solo trumpet, piccolo trumpet, tuba, trombone, flugelhorn, and french horn.
Featuring all core articulations along with a variety of 'extended' techniques (clusters, rips, falls, suspensions, etc.), Bravura Scoring Brass is intended as a complete tool for creating realistic orchestral parts. The relatively dry scoring studio recordings and adjustable mic positions offer more flexible mix possibilities, from a tight and focused 'direct' sound to a more traditional 'epic hall' symphonic timbre, using the built-in mixing and reverb tools.
Along with a suite of mixing and performance options in the Kontakt interface, the library also includes two additional script engines - the Chord Maker and Orchestrator. These patches allow users to play and trigger fully-voiced chords across multiple brass ensembles and instruments with realistic orchestration, all on a single MIDI track. The orchestration and chord settings are user-adjustable to create custom chord shapes, textures, and inversions.
- 55,000+ samples provided in both 16 & 24-bit flavors.
- Three user-adjustable microphone positions.
- True legato performances with adjustable settings.
- Three types of short articulations: staccato, tenuto, marcato.
- Rips, falls, trills, and flutters.
- Tempo-synced multi-tongues (double & triple).
- Aleatoric / extended techniques for all ensembles.
- Complete bundle compatible with Kontakt Player 5.4 and up.
Bravura Scoring Brass is available both as a complete bundle including all content, as well as a la carte for composers needing an even more affordable brass solution. The a la carte products include individual solo instruments, ensembles, and bundles at a reduced price, allowing users the option of purchasing only what patches they need.
Price: $349 for the complete version powered by Kontakt Player. A la carte options start at $39 for solo instruments, requiring the full version of Kontakt.
