The story

This is a multi-instrument sample pack containing several brass and wind sounds. I used a modular synthesizer to create (as good as possible) life-like imitations of a tuba, a trombone/horns section and a clarinet or flute that I sampled chromatically and with slightly different settings for every note. There’s two velocity layers for every sound to give the user a bit more expressive control over these somewhat stale synthesized sounds.

The brass sounds are synthesized by filtering a saw wave. An LFO (modulated by an envelope) is controlling the filter frequency. This mimics the brassy attack.

The wind instruments are a mix of a filtered square wave with some white noise.

This pack is the result of a study on how to create orchestral sounds with a modular synth. The sounds are probably not very inspiring, but I learned a lot making them and compiling them into a Decent Sampler instrument was educational and inspiring.

    I really like the playful feel. To me It is reminiscent of the brass/winds in the video game Legend of Zelda Wind Waker. Fun yet charming feel. Thank you for creating this!
