Westwood Instruments has announced the latest installment in its Untamed series of Kontakt instrument libraries. Solo Brass Untamed breathes life, emotion and a little bit of chaos into your brass with 5 brass instruments: Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba and Flugelhorn.

The library includes 1,600 unique improvisations, plus “Storms” and dozens of other interesting articulations. The instruments were recorded in a converted church with a variety of microphones to offer 4 mic positions: Spot, Close, Room, and Gallery.

The lungs of the library are the Improvisations. These are performed notes with real human energy and movement. It’s like someone taking your composition and breathing life and emotion into it. Included with all of the instruments is a unique Storms articulation. Create a crescendo from a calm solo performance through a lively ensemble to a wild outburst of unruly players.

With lots of other interesting long and short articulations to play with. Some more unexpected and unusual than others and all performed with the same human feeling. Solo Brass Untamed is right at home with alternative scores and is also ideal for layering over bigger symphonic arrangements to add some magic and soul. It’s inspired by eclectic and rule-bending composers like Bernard Hermann, Danny Elfman and Colin Stetson.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher, Solo Brass Untamed is on sale for the launch price of 119 USD/EUR or £105 GBP for a limited time (regular 199 USD/EUR or £175 GBP).
