Heavyocity has launched collection of core elements from its flagship FORZO: Modern Brass cinematic brass instrument library.

Recorded at the renowned Skywalker Sound in California, FORZO Essentials captures all of the orchestral brass power of the full FORZO instrument: explosive traditional brass, dynamic hybrid brass, and inspiring brass loops, but with a more-streamlined content set for composers of all budgets and levels of experience.

FORZO Essentials delivers the bombastic sound of 26 Hollywood brass players, performing at the same time in the same legendary room. The Full Ensemble preset features 12 french horns, four trumpets, eight trombones, and two tubas performing six key articulations (Sustains, Staccatos, Crescendos, Braams, Random Flutters, Cluster Crescendos) at one of the world’s premier scoring stages.

FORZO Essentials is the beyond-ordinary brass of FORZO, with an additional dose of Heavyocity’s signature sound design.

Heavyocity’s award-winning creative team has effected, tweaked, and treated these pristine brass samples into an all-new crop of hybrid cinematic elements: with 25 unique Hybrid snapshots and 36 Loops.

Add in the full functionalities of the innovative FORZO engine, and composers of all budgets and styles now have access to this new benchmark in orchestral brass.
