Rowdy Brass

Trombones and trumpets with attitude!...

The story

This quick little library happened via a combination of playing and having fun with the recently released (at time of writing) LABS trumpet library and building guilt from promising some trombone instruments over at the pianobook forums. So here they are / it is (The trombones and trumpets, the instrument)! The idea was sort of since I’m not really a professional player, I shouldn’t try to sound like one. So I decided to play a few round robins and velocity layers on open notes, with a little more chaos added per intensity layer. At the bottom end you get some fairly smooth and soft pads, while the top has more aggressive bends and vibrato. Kontakt 6.2.2+

  • Very interesting vibration of the brass library!

    Very interesting! I did not know what to expect, but I imagined of some country instrument by listening to the sound. Warm, simple vibration of the brass.

  • Brass samples that maybe need a little work

    The underlying recordings here aren't bad, but if a little more time and care went into the Kontakt programming, this instrument would be a lot more usable. The envelope parameters make these instruments seem a lot less believable, and a lot less playable, especially in the higher ranges.

  • Very, very simple

    This seems more like a modern workstation keyboard engine trying to create brass sounds. It's not fully realistic, but it's not too synthy either. I found the lower range being the most usable one and as you go up you see that thngs can only go worse. The higher you go, the more synthy it becomes, and turns out sounding very fake, in my opinion. Most of the samples suffer from a little noise, but the worst part is some weird clickly noises that repeat often due to the short sample looping. On top of that, the GUI offers no options at all.
