Kick-Ass Brass! is a virtual instrument version of AMG's brass library of the same name. This SOS 5-star award-winning library is widely accepted as the closest thing to a real horn section. Extremely easy to use and sounds great without the need to complicated programming, it's a musician's instrument. This library is an extended and improved version, and includes additional new and extended instruments (Baritone Sax & Muted Trumpet).
Kick-Ass Brass! is 8 part multi-timbral and designed for multi-timbral arranging and live performance applications. The library contains three types of files: Instruments, Sections and FX presets.
An Instrument is the fundamental building block of the library, such as the Alto Sax. Instruments are divided into a number of Variations. A Variation is a particular way of playing the given instrument – for example there are different Variations for the Alto Sax instrument when it is played with vibrato, as staccato stabs, swells etc.
The library includes a number of FX presets that can be loaded into the two built-in stereo 64-bit FX units. The two FX units are shared by all 8 channels, but you can set independent FX send levels for each Timbre. FX presets cannot be edited.
A Section file contains the Instrument assignments and settings of all 8 channels, plus both FX units. There are a number of preset Sections in the Library offering suggested combinations of Instruments and Variations for various purposes.
