Overview
  • 1Description

The Brass Bundle from Vienna Symphonic Library delivers the entire range of symphonic orchestra brass instruments, and more. Brass I includes the standard instrumentation with trumpet, Viennese horn, tenor trombone and tuba (each recorded solo and in 3-player ensembles).

Brass II expands the spectrum with piccolo and bass trumpet, triple-horn, bass and contrabass trombone, contrabass tuba, Wagner tuba and the warm sounding cimbasso of the tuba family, to meet the requirements of large orchestral scores. A specialty of the Brass II collection is the "Epic Horns" sample set, a massive sounding body of 8 double horns, well-known for its use in many Hollywood action scores.

The Special Brass collection contains less common instruments such as cornet, alto trombone and euphonium. The included 6 "Fanfare Trumpets" (3 trumpets in B♭ and 3 trumpets in C) perfectly compliment the 8 "Epic Horns" of the Brass II collection.

  • Brass I - Vienna Instruments

    Vienna Instruments - Brass I from Vienna Symphonic is a sample-based virtual instrument, featuring the basic brass instruments of the orchestra, both as solo instruments and the corresponding ensembles. These include the Trumpet, Viennese Horn, Tenor Trombone, Tuba, Trumpet Ensemble (3 players,) Horn Ensemble (4 players) and Trombone Ensemble (3 players.)

    The four original performers are masters of their trade. Trumpet player Freddy Staudigl, Horn player Marcus Schmidinger and Trombone player Johann Schodl are not only founding members of the renowned ensemble "Brassissimo," but are also active as soloists and orchestral musicians on an international level. The Tuba player Christoph Kiene is also internationally known as a lecturer.

    Apart from the usual articulations, this Vienna Instruments Collection also provides fast Interval Performances in legato and marcato, Performance Trills, arpeggios (major, minor and diminished in legato and staccato) and mordents. Trumpet and trombone offer the complete muted playing techniques, not only as solo instruments but also in the ensembles.

    Another specialty is the trumpet ensemble's "out of tune" sustains, as they occasionally happen in real orchestral situations. The three trumpet players don't hit the note exactly at the beginning of a part and a beat frequency ensues which is corrected as the tone progresses, eventually resulting in a clean homophony. The trumpets also feature "rips and falls."

    The trombone ensembles also offer a specialty. Clusters of three notes with half tone intervals are available in staccato (two variations,) sustained, crescendo and diminuendo (in two tone lengths,) sforzato, and even as Repetition Performances.

    Note: Software requires a ViennaKey USB protection device if one is not already on the system.

    Complete library of orchestral brass instruments and ensembles that provide the raw material for recording absolutely authentic brass parts
    Includes over 24,000 samples
  • Brass II - Vienna Instruments

    Brass II from Vienna Symphonic is a sample-based virtual instrument, containing the instruments needed for large-scale orchestral arrangements, such as those required by a Wagnerian score for example. Oriented toward Wagner's Ring Cycle, the collection includes the bass trumpet, the contrabass trombone, Wagner tuba and contrabass tuba, all with the standard single note and Performance articulations like Interval Performances, Repetitions and Performance Trills, etc.

    As an alternative to the Viennese horn, Brass II contains a new solo horn, the triple horn, Yamaha's master instrument in F/B♭/high F, recorded down to the lowest register (A1.) Also included are the piccolo trumpet, cimbasso, and the "Epic Horns" from the Horizon Series, an impressive sounding body of eight double horns that not only fulfills the sonic ideal of the theatrical late Romantic orchestra, but also meets the challenge of "larger than life" scores for modern cinema.

    The Vienna Instruments user interface is clearly arranged and includes pre-configured patches for immediate playability with no learning curve. The interface uses a powerful proprietary streaming audio engine that can load up to 3,456 articulations (patches) on one MIDI channel.

    Load times are extremely low and 64 stereo voices per instance can stream from the hard disc. A RAM optimizing utilities clears unused samples out of RAM. Users can easily create their own instruments, using "drag and drop" functionality, and the instrument provides the ability for velocity crossfades and release control to be switched on or off in real time.

    Note: Software requires a ViennaKey USB protection device if one is not already on the system.
