PREMIUM ORCHESTRAL SCORING

The SYMPHONY SERIES BRASS COLLECTION sets a new benchmark for orchestral scoring. This two volume set features ENSEMBLE and SOLO volumes, each offering a full suite of professional brass content within a masterfully designed interface. Created in close partnership with Native Instruments, with flawless integration for Kontakt Player and Komplete Kontrol S-Series Keyboards, these state-of-the-art virtual instruments deliver unparalleled sonic depth and realism. The ENSEMBLE library offers a massive 32-piece brass ensemble. Control fully independent Trumpet, Trombone, Horn, and Tuba sections with eight players each. At the head of each section, the SOLO library gives you First Horn, Second Horn, Bb Trumpet, Tenor Trombone and Bass Tuba soloists. With over 45,000 samples, unparalleled quality and exquisite detail, this collection is comprehensive.

The Ensemble and Solo libraries each include over 100 playable chromatic articulations. The Ensemble features extended key ranges, multi-layered true legato, a variety of sustain types, round-robin staccato with multiple staccato tonguings, trills, sforzandos, swells, crescendos, decrescendos, ultra-forte blasts, muted articulations and a wide selection of orchestral brass effects – clusters, sweeps, falls, risers, stabs, stingers, cacophonies, valve noises and more. The Solo volume focuses on detailed true legato and a variety of sustains, staccatos, dynamic expressions and special effects, with a more intimate and deeply nuanced character. Even straight out of the box, the sound is natural, full of personality, and truly huge. The SYMPHONY SERIES BRASS COLLECTION combines the BRASS ENSEMBLE and BRASS SOLO libraries into one complete bundle, giving producers and composers maximum flexibility and the utmost quality at a fantastic bundle price.

This collection is part of the Native Instruments Symphony Series line. It is not included in Komplete or Komplete Ultimate. However, if you own Komplete, you are eligible for a great cross-grade rebate from Native Instruments on your order of the Symphony Series Woodwind Collection. We also offer the Symphony Series Woodwind Collection, a brilliant orchestral ensemble and solo woodwind product designed to mesh perfectly with our brass. Click here to learn more.

 

 

DETAILED REALISM

The Dynamics knob allows composers to create expressive real-time performances. Each turn of the knob intelligently blends across the dynamic range of each articulation for dramatic tonal shifts. And for ensemble sustains, true legato and staccatos, use the Dynamics knob to blend smoothly across dynamic layers. Turn the knob for a fluid rise from piano to fortissimo with true legato sustains for each section.

Shape your own performance with Smooth Dynamics, Attack, Release, Tightness, and Motion controls. Create instant single, double, and triple tongued attacks for sustains, expressions and staccatos with automatic Repetition control, including dynamic accenting for staccatos. And you can precisely time expression articulations to score cues thanks to a dedicated visual display, tempo-synching and/or time-stretching options.

Our intuitive legato system gives you natural flow with expressive options. Each ensemble section offers multi-layered true legato (p, mf and f) with fluid dynamic blending. Additionally, both trumpet and trombone sections feature both tongued and slurred legato styles. The soloists provide detailed and expressive long-form true legato. And you can play any sustaining articulation with real-time sim legato in slur and flip styles, with interval response shaping and solo/duet polyphony.

EASY CUSTOMIZATION

SYMPHONY SERIES BRASS COLLECTION adapts to any workflow. Assign articulations to key switches quickly and easily – all articulation types are color-coded for fast visual recognition (mirrored in detail on the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards). To accommodate different composer workflows, the interface provides three options for switching articulations: MIDI note, velocity range, or MIDI CC messages. If required, you can even assign each section to a specific key range to create custom key splits for a particular composition. Then easily store your settings as Snapshots for instant recall in another project. And flawless KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series integration immediately puts key parameters under your fingertips. Created for the professional composer, SYMPHONY SERIES sets a new standard in orchestral scoring.

COMPLETE MIX OPTIONS

Open up the mixer page to craft the perfect blend of stereo master, close, mid, and far mics. With individual loading, volume and output routing for each position, you have full control over your mix – plus a range of effect options. All mixer settings can be stored, and easily recalled for other NKIs.

We give you more freedom with your section placements. In addition to mix control for each section and mic position, you also get independent pan sliders for each section and soloist. Rather than locking the sound with fixed hard-panned seating placements, we recorded the players at center stage, in a wide, well-balanced stereo field to give you freedom to arrange your way. This allows Symphony Series Brass to fit seamlessly in any genre, style or mix.

INSPIRED CRAFTSMANSHIP

We developed the Symphony Series Brass Collection with Native Instruments’ own in-house design team over a 2-year period to create this unparalleled brass scoring solution. This collection is built from over 50 hours of recording during an 8-day session at St Paul’s Church in San Francisco. We captured the brass with 14 high dynamic range large diaphragm Neumann studio microphones, from distances of 1 to 30 meters. We recorded directly into pristine low-noise time-coded Sound Devices 788 multichannel recorders. The result is an amazingly detailed and powerfully rich sound, with outstanding noise-free fidelity and uncolored stunningly vivid acoustics. We carefully mixed them down to a brilliant set of 4 optimal blends: the tight and clear close position; the well-rounded and spacious middle position; the lush, fluid back-of-house far position; and of course the master stereo mix for that perfect instant out-of-the box sound.
