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).
