Mold and Sculpt your Sound Like Never Before with Seven Mic Positions - Sample Library for Kontakt 4 and Above (Retail Version Only, not Free Kontakt Player)

Auddict is very pleased to present the MASTER BRASS orchestral brass sample library, a twenty three person strong brass ensemble, recorded with painstaking care and detail. Included are French Horns, Trumpets, Trombones and Tubas.

The Master Brass library boasts no less then seven mic positions/perspectives to choose from and/or blend between, as well as multiple legato modes and intricately put together techniques and articulations, which highlight each instrument's particular capability and character.

This library was produced with the aims to yet again push sample libraries closer towards the flexibility and possibility of a real recording session. There are many aspects of the library reflecting this, including of course the seven mic position mixer, but also aspects such as true octave legato in the horns, true chords (crescendo and diminuendo) for all instruments included, an extra unusual but crucial mic position included (woodwind spots - more on this below), a fantastic high RR per dynamic layer staccato articulation, and more....

Mix between the perspectives; Decca tree sides and mid, flanks, room, woodwind spots, close ribbons and close LDCs, with the flexibility aimed at replicating a real scoring session. Now you have control over the different mic and perspective levels in the session, enabling you to morph your own sound in your scores, as if you were at the studio with the console at your fingertips.

You might have noticed that one of the perspectives included is "woodwind spots". While this is not a woodwind library, the mics that spot the woodwinds were set up and included in the recording. The reason for this, is that a lot of the brass sound bleeds heavily into the woodwind mics in scoring sessions, adding to the perceived depth of the sound, so whilst pushing to achieve the most versatile, we felt that this absolutely had to be included.
