Daniel Belik has released Liner Horn, an industrial wind instrument for Kontakt with a brutal, unstable and roaring sound.
During the composition, there are situations when it is necessary to create a dramaturgic accent, for example, in the piece culmination. Usually, for this purpose the composers use variety of loud instruments such as percussion or brass. However, sometimes required something more than just a traditional orchestra. In this case, one can try the sound of the powerful industrial air horns.
Liner horn – it is your “bazooka in your pocket”, with which you get ultra-powerful wind bass in your Kontakt-orchestra. Just load it, set timbre with four mic positions, and you are ready to create the most epic track in history! In addition, you can use various built-in FX, or turn on the gate and get a textured rhythmic pattern.
The library is available for purchase for $14.99 USD. Requires NI Kontakt 4.2.3 or later, full retail.
Push Button Bang has launched Hip Hop Horns, a collection of big brass and sexy saxophone to light up your modern hip hop, R&B and urban chart music production.
Whether you want staccato stabs, simple catchy chorus hooks, big power notes, winding improvised brass solos or all of the above, Hip Hop horns is guaranteed to deliver.
The content draws on contemporary hip hop and R&B for its inspiration, taking its cue from the brass hooks featured in productions from Jason Derulo, Kanye West, Jay- Z and Outkast.
All the sax loops are expertly recorded at 96bpm, in complimentary keys and played with real passion and skill. As well as the saxophone content, also included is a huge range of hip hop and abstract break stems: drums, melodies, FX parts and long guitar accompaniment backing parts, perfect for creating live sounding multi instrument jams in seconds.
In detail, the pack contains 100 saxophone loops, presented in both their original 100 tenor versions and also 100 “baritone” versions. Meaning the loops have also been pitched down an octave with an incredibly smooth algorithm, for an additional deeper version of each loop.
The pack is available from Loopmasters for £14.95 GBP.
Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Horn Phalanx, a new British Modular Library series instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
With Sable strings we proved that small can be beautiful. With our intricate woodwind and awe inspiring brass ranges we have proven that attention to moving composition and intricate arrangement can move your listener as much as scale. But in the case of Mural, sometimes size DOES matter. We’ve applied this to this new set of “Phalanx” brass modules which feature large, 6 piece sections leathering it at the hall in Air-Studios.
First up is our Horn Phalanx, capturing that unmistakable sound of a large array of brass, valves and bells (and quite a lot of spit) belting it in unison. You can’t imitate the power of this. The horns are placed in situ around the original BML “Horn Section Vol.1″ seating, so if you want to go truly Wagnerian add the phalanx to our original horn line to get 9 players!
This is a self contained library that features a specially curated set of articulations for this size of section, designed by our award winning team of composers, and with the players themselves. All available with the standard and extended array of microphone mixes so you can instantly tweak the perspective of the performance space.
Horn Phalanx is available for purchase for the introductory price of £169 GBP until December 1st, 2014 (RRP £229 GBP).
