The Brass Bundle Extended from Vienna Symphonic Library provides additional articulations and samples to the Standard Libraries in the bundle (Standard Library required). The total bundle 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.
Recorded in Vienna's famed Silent Stage, Vienna Dimension Brass goes beyond just using multi-samples. Every note was played by a well-rehearsed ensemble of four brass players, but with each instrument recorded separately. Access to each individual voice is available, but the result is not the sound of four soloists. Rather, the "ensemble-sound" retains its cohesiveness whether playing in unison, divisi, or even in four-part harmony.
