Sonokinetic has announced the release of Ostinato Brass, a perpetual cinematic orchestral brass instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Sonokinetic Ostinato Brass

Ostinato Brass is a phrase library for complex brass chords.

Last year we released our Ostinato Strings library. It was designed to solve one specific issue that virtual instruments have struggled with for years: how to create realistic ostinato motifs without sacrificing playability. The library took our phrase-based approach and extended the harmonic scope so that far more complex chords than simple major and minors could be played.

Ostinato Strings was met with great acclaim both for the sound and the flexibility of the chord system, so we couldn’t resist following it up with a brass section using the Ostinato engine and with the same intuitive features. We returned to the great recording space we employed for other Sonokinetic orchestral libraries and gathered a selection of some of the greatest (and most precise) brass players to perform for us.
