Arturia Brass

Brass is a new kind of virtual instrument: a software recreation of the trumpet, saxophone, and trombone.

This software allows you to play instruments like a professional performer would do: same control, flexibility, and expressiveness (without the years of training it takes to do so). It gives you instant and constant creation. Brass is so dynamic and easy-to-use that you will never go back to flat sampled riff libraries ever again.
