This electronic download of Phantom Horns from Zero-G is a collection of brass samples recorded by UK horn section The Phantom Horns. The line-up consists of trumpet, flute, flugelhorn and trombone, as well as alto, tenor and baritone saxophones. Both riffs and playable multi-sampled instruments are provided. The riffs are all performed by various combinations of these instruments, and this comprehensive sample library provides an in-depth study of the range and versatility of the contemporary brass section.
The library has five main stylistic sections: Power Tower, J.B. Soul, E.W.F., Rock n' Roll, and Reggae. Each section comprises a vast number of short brass riffs and phrases, played at two different tempos and in four different key signatures. Each phrase is recorded four times, once in each key, and always at intervals a fourth apart. This gives you maximum flexibility when putting a track together, and also encourages you to explore some of the more unusual ranges for the instruments within the brass section.
A fair portion of the library is given over to multisamples of the solo brass instruments themselves: tenor sax, baritone sax, trumpet and, finally, the full horn section. Each one gives you loads of options for creating an accurate representation of the instrument, by sampling a wide variety of single notes over nearly three octaves. There are easily loopable long notes, swells slides, short & long falls, crotchets, quavers, and semi-quaver short notes. As a bonus, a few minutes of excellent solo improvisation on flute, trumpet, and sax are provided.
