The story

An Orchestral Synth Pad that sounds like multiple brass musicians playing in a stadium.

When recording the debut Pop album for a client, we needed a Trumpeter for a Gyspsy’esque party-song. There was a section of takes where the trumpeter growled through his trumpet, and the tone of the notes was truly unique. After manipulation and layering to the nth degree, we created a 3 velocity layered Orchestral Pad, manufactured from our favourite trumpet samples.

This orchestral synth pad allows you to create music that is majestic, powerful, and even haunting at times.

Built for the FULL VERSION of Native Instrument’s Kontakt 5.8

Have fun!!

  • Cinematic, synthetic sound of brass

    Excellent brass!! Totally cinematic, dynamic sounds. Higher range also has a nice long punched sound, and playability is great as well.

  • Haunting

    I got this one on a hunch it'd be good, and it did not disappoint. The character almost sounds like a filter violin, and is perfect for atmospheric stingers and melodies. I could even see it being perfect as a layer for EDM leads. A bit of a shame that there isn't a loop function built into this, as that'd make it perfect for sustained pads as well, but all in all, this is a definite winner, and a fond new addition to my toolbox

  • A Haunting Brass Drone

    As soon as you play you press a key, you will understand what it is about. Before that happens though, the GUI greets you by setting the mood with its gritty textures, and there you will find 4 knobs for letting you mess with the Attack, Release, LPF and Reverb. Sadly the samples don't loop by themselves, and that shows as you go up on the higher register, realising that they are all way too short. The lower sections though are deep and haunting, and will surely dress your music track's chraracter well.

  • Evocative Pads

    These brass based pads are great for scene setting and as a foundation for dramatic moments. They are unique and playable. Not something you'd reach for every day, but they surely have the potential to inspire you!

  • Gnarly but Ghostly

    This is quite an aggressive ambient pad library. Which could be exactly the thing you need. Its been programmed well and the GUI features the controls you would want on a patch such as this. There's an almost tape like quality to the sound, which comes from the way the trumpet was played in the sampling process. All in all, its a great library!
