Native Instruments has introduced a new virtual instrument in collaboration with e-instruments. Designed for instantly adding warm, intimate brass textures to any production with a single chord or key, Valves features a uniquely expressive brass ensemble, professionally performed and expertly recorded.

The library brings the sounds of a uniquely curated ensemble comprising French horn, Flugelhorn, Euphonium, Trombone, and Tuba. Valves comes with 100 preset phrases, each with 3 variations.

All the presets in VALVES contain a complementary collection of phrases for each instrument, all composed from professionally performed articulations, synced to your host’s tempo, and designed to work seamlessly together. Inject movement and color into your productions with the Moments Slider, which progressively and musically introduces new phrase variations, one instrument at a time.

VALVES’ instantly playable phrases are created from a wealth of articulations, including crescendos, decrescendos, evolving sustains, swells, waves, and more. Each phrase can be edited to your liking, or you can build your own from scratch. Stuck for inspiration? Hit Random for endless new variations, or experiment with different loop lengths for each individual track.

Valves for Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player is available to purchase for 99 USD/EUR.
